The characters behave their age without being overdone. The plot moves at a good pace with lots of action, ups and downs. Jen and Sally as comic relief just crack me up though sometimes I want Jen to shut up so we can hear what comes next. The writing is pretty simple but effective and the narration was good. All in all, I'm on to Bk 2!
Loved the book before I bought the audio. Great narration, it added another level of depth to the story. Unfortunately, for me, the voice of Jen really grated, in reading the series I got the idea of someone with sharp caustic wit and the husky gritty voice sounded more like someone who had smoked for 40 years and was a bit drunk. Maybe it says her voice is husky and I forgot about it, but it didn't gel for me hence 4* rating. Saying that, the voices of Kane and Jacque were spot on making me feel like I really know these people.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
If the author didn't make Jen sound like an old hag witch, I would have enjoyed it a lot more. I dreaded hearing Jen speak throughout the whole book. Don't know if I could purchase the rest of the series because of this.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I love Sally the best because she was always the one to mediate the other two or keep them grounded.
Would you be willing to try another one of Abby Craden’s performances?
I will never ever listen to any of her narrations. I hope that her narrations for the Grey Wolves Series can be changed because this will definitely be the breaking point for anyone interested in purchasing this audio book. Until that happens, I won't be purchasing the rest of the series.
Any additional comments?
Change the narrator. People would enjoy it a lot better and my rating will definitely go up. She's the reason this audio book is a 2. I rated this book on amazon after I read it and I gave it a 5. I gave this a 2 because I still like the story but hate cringing every time I hear Jen's lines. The narrator also made Sally sound like a little boy mouse. If that's even possible. Just had to put it out there so other potential listeners can be warned before "jumping the bullet" -- reference to Fane

The narration of the female characters left a lot to be desired. The teenagers (older teenagers) sounded more like they were pre-teens! Big tuneoff......
