CREATIVE SCIFI LOVE STORY!!!

What made the experience of listening to Shadow Wars: Homebound the most enjoyable?

The story and characters!


What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadow Wars: Homebound?

When Veil finally finds out his purpose and meets his dad!


Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was a C+...the editing needed work...and the sex scenes were weird....The voices were pretty good....


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could have....the middle was a little dull...but overall this is a good story!


Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

Veil and Nikki are from another planet...not knowing this, they have lived fairly normal lives on earth. Well it all gets a little crazy for these 2 and they are swept up in a dangerous adventure...Veil rescues Nikki and they are on the run! They fall for each other which is inevitable and when they learn there true identities they are shocked...but not even bloodlines and boundaries will keep these 2 apart...and we get a great ending!! I hope there is a book 2....because I would totally listen to it!!!

Thank You Audiobookblast(dot)com

Strong sexual connection in scifi setting.

What would have made Shadow Wars: Homebound better?

I would have liked to see more of a building of the characters before they slept together or dealt with emotional moments. If they hadn't had such a strong feel and sleep together so soon, I might have been better with their relationship as later in the book I feel they are stronger as a couple. In a scene with a death, the characters had reactions that I didn't feel lead up to that feeling from him.

There were a few moments the narrator seemed to miss deletions in the editing phase and repeated words. There was a point in the story where it sounds like a slight twang to the background of the room, giving a sound of a small echo to his voice. Then in the fast moving scenes of being on the flee, fighting, or thinking the pacing felt off. In trimming and editing his recording, he splices sentences together to fast to try to show the quickness of the moment, but it sounds like a run-on sentence. I really don't like this feel as it made the cadence wrong for me.


Would you recommend Shadow Wars: Homebound to your friends? Why or why not?

Not as an audio, unless they use headphones. Maybe as an ebook if they enjoy high heat sexual moments through out the book. If they listen to audio, it'll be heard to all.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Todd Van Linda?

I don't know many narrators, but I think Todd could have done better with the editing of the story.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Once Nikki is in the position she's to be in by her right, she excels at a strong, smart woman. She knows what she wants and gets the job done. I will give Nikki her credits for that. I do enjoy the way she uses the unspoken hinted knowledge to her advantage. Very well done Nikki. For this, the book earned some credit back in my mind.


Any additional comments?

About half way the heat between them kicked up to a high. At this point I was finally feeling comfortable with them as a couple and what they needed to do on the new planet. The slipped into roles at this point and became someone more.
