What the Critics Say



Audie Award Nominee - Judges' Award for Best Paranormal Audiobook, 2011
"A new, strongly unique voice in the dark fantasy genre." (Kim Harrison)
"Hunter's very professionally executed, tasty blend of dark fantasy, mystery, and romance should please fans of all three genres." (Booklist)
"Khristine Hvam portrays Jane with an adventurous-sounding voice edged with a twang.... Hvam’s voices for the Louisiana locals whom Jane learns to love and respect.... augment an intriguing story with hints of Native American mysticism." (AudioFile)

Perfection!!!

This is without doubt one of the best shifter books I have ever come across, and defiantly the best one I?ve ever found on audio. The story its self is brilliant, as is that of the main character. Who she is and where she came from. The difference between how Jane sees the world in human form and when she is in the form of Beast is just one of the things that makes this story so gripping. All the characters are complex and intriguing as is the world in which the live. A truly great book that I will be able to listen to, and enjoy, over and over again.

Vampire fighting, form changing fighter

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

In the most part I did enjoy this slightly different take on a vampire hunter. Jane's ability to change into the beast added a different angle to the story although I did find the short sentences when Jane was in beast form a little annoying after a while. There was lots of potential in the relationships Jane formed for future stories and I understand there are quite a few spin off stories involved. From a practical point of view I probably would have preferred the background more in this story but overall I would recommend as something a little different.


Would you be willing to try another book from Faith Hunter? Why or why not?

Yes, I've put the subsequent book on my wish list and will purchase soon. At end of the story she was about to do something so I'd like to see how this develops.


What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

With narration, you get more of a feel for where the book is set with the different accents a narrator brings, That always adds something extra to the book (for me).
