Publisher's Summary

Earth is all but dead. With meteors exploding in their midst, the shuttle Grace boards takes flight in a last ditch effort to save human lives. With little food, water and eight stowaways the situation is volatile while they race to the new planet, Ulsy. A wormhole and a crash are their undoing.
While fleeing into the strange surroundings on an even stranger planet two of Grace's shuttle pilots are killed by a massive ebony creature with fangs as white as ivory. Rask is a full blooded Castian warrior who thinks his planet has been stormed. When he comes across the little being that cowers from him he is intrigued. After 400 years and virtual immortality Rask thought he had seen everything.
When the being before him declares herself to be a human female he is beyond amazed. Females have been extinct as long as he can remember. But there is no denying her sweet scent. One inhaled breath is all it takes to drop his shield and reveal the muscular tanned male beneath. Rask had thought his armor impenetrable. One touch from a slender hand and he realizes he is powerless against the tiny human he must have.

The book is great the audio is unbearable.

Please redo the audio with a different male reader and add a female reader. Each character sounded old and pompous. I tried to get thru it but finally gave up at chapter 6. Glad I already read the book or I might not have known how great this series is.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

didnt like the narrator and how it was delivered... this is not an extraorninary book with lost of depth and character.. its just an average read, but sometimes an average read become a great one if the narrator is not annoying half the time. Ive lisneted to audiobooks with british accent ( or is it Australian?) before and I never had any problems with it. its just the way it was read, i couldn't put my finger on it. in the end I just stopped and read the book instead... O well I gambled one credit and lost...


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I thought Rask being 400 years old, hed be more worldly and experienced, assertive and knows what he was doing... in the end Grace got a 13 year old boy in a mature mans body... mature may he look like hes still a boy inside and that is a total turn off... the premise of the book isn't something to write abouth either...


Would you be willing to try another one of Matthew Lloyd Davies’s performances?

Maybe not...


Was Shield worth the listening time?

Sorry but no..


Any additional comments?

Sadly I wont buy the next in the series.. isnt worth collecting...
