After listening to the first book in this series I was skeptical about moving on to the second book, but this story did not disappointment. (It was much better than book one :-)!
The world Evangeline has created is unique with interesting concepts and the character development was great. There are several different POV’s and I really enjoyed learning about the different characters; even the bad ones. The plot is well written and will transition smoothly into the next book where we will learn more about the existing characters as well as new ones.
Overall, I was very pleased with the story and have actually recommended this series to several of my friends. So far, they’ve all said positive things about this series.
**Recommended for those who like Sci-fi Romances with a little erotica thrown in to spice it up!

There were a few times during the first half of this listen when I thought I couldn't continue any longer and my finger was hovering over 'stop' more than once as Sophia was so annoying, naive, whimpy and child-like there was also far too much not-quite-sex sex just lots of talk and action around the lapping of her 'juices'..... enough already t.m.i.!!
However, the storyline grew into a much more enjoyable listen when Sophia and Sylvan were made to leave the ship and there were interesting and humorous times as well as an exciting rescue. I can't argue that this is a very imaginative realm with well described imagery, a bounty of characters and there are a lot of sub plots which adds more depth to the story, but throughout the whole story whimpering Sophia (rightly or wrongly) was rejecting Sylvan who was so loving, loyal and the perfect understanding Warrior and it got too repetitive.
There was the constant threat by the Scourge and the evil AllFather relentlessly and mercilessly tortured his poor son Xairn and others and he still hasn't found the woman with 'the mark' to fulfil the Prophecy..... and his sperm's getting ready to impregnate her - willing or not.... yuk and barf.
Worth a credit? Elements were good, narration was great but I didn't feel the 'romance' of the story and it just didn't hold my attention mainly because of the heroine's constant high anxiety level and this veered off course from erotica/romance into a pity party. For a romance to work properly you've got to love the hero but you also have to like the heroine too. I won't ask for a refund on this and it's such a shame but I also don't think I'll be continuing with this series.

The author makes earth females so whiney and weak the narrator is awful she spoiled the book for me I found it difficult to get into the story because of this
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Fun, uncomplicated, pure evasion, but the heroine is a wet. That she should have sexual hang ups is understandable, given her history. But she has an armful of other phobias too and not much umph, which gets annoying quite fast. I spent half the book wanting to shake her. She redeems herself in the end, fortunately, by growing a (small) pair.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Hunted?
The banquet on Tranq Prime. Pricelessly funny, all the more because the heroine is a timid mouse, which cranks up the embarrassment factor. She has more backbone than is apparent at first, fortunately.
What three words best describe Anne Johnstonbrown’s performance?
Can't do men.
Any additional comments?
This narrator does good female voices overall, but terrible male voices. Her men all sound hoarse.
