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.

AWESOME START!

Love the story! The concept is original. Short but packed with action and description. New world with a different spin on alien society.
I only review stories I love and don't want to waste my time or yours with mediocre listens. This is definitely great! I will listen to this story again asap.

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.

I loved this story! a bit shocking at first!

Would you consider the audio edition of Shield to be better than the print version?

yes! the characters have voices and tone! I love it!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Shield?

the shock factors of the first few chapters, a bit um inappropriate in some ways but its such a grate story!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Oh man I loved the whole thing!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

yes I cringed quite a lot with disguised and shock but I was routeing for the characters!

Any additional comments?
