I'm not a huge fan of 'The Breeds' stories - I've not read (or listened) to them all. I tend to pick the odd book that appears to have an interesting plot and I've found it easy enough to keep up with what is going on with the Breed story as a whole while missing the odd five or six stories between books. I was in a Breed mood when I saw Stygian's Honor and decided that I would get this. Stygian's Honor follows the Stygian and Liza and the efforts to find two girls (Honor and Fawn) who escaped from a lab around a decade a go. The story was pretty formulaic and anyone who has read any Breed book will be very familiar with the mating heat and all that entails. I was a little disappointed when I reached the end of this story with very little plot wise actually happening. For those of us curious as to what happens(ed) to Honor and Fawn, we will be required to dive into the next book. I personally prefer a story where there is a firm conclusion to a specific tale and felt a little grumbly that if I want to know (and actually, do I?), I'll have to get the next book.
I do like Brianna Bronte's narration and I'm happy to give her five stars. But the story only scores three this time. Having said that, this is book 27 and it would be pretty amazing if a series was still feeling fresh!

Would you try another book from Lora Leigh and/or Brianna Bronte?
Has Stygian's Honor turned you off from other books in this genre?
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
She has a grasp for different accents. I dislike the misprouncements (machinations). I also dislike the fact that the main characters for each book sounds the same. Tanner should sound like Tanner and Stygian should have his own voice. And Scheme and Honor should not sound alike either. I think that the story lines could be served better if a different person performed them. I don't know use a different person for each book?
What character would you cut from Stygian's Honor?
There are no characters I would cut.
Any additional comments?
It is the same story, just different characters. It is time for a different formula, format or whatever she uses. Also, the story is not always kept straight. In one book Brimm was going to be the assistant director, now Lawe? What happened? I aslo don't like the fact that original characters disappear. Where is Dr. Martin? I wish that more consideration is given to the story lines instead of the sex scenes, which are the same also. I like the Breeds and wish the books would come out faster than they do. But, I think that she needs to change it up some. I also think that she do a prequel about the Leo and Elizabeth. I would like to hear their story. I like the snippets we get in the novels but I think they deserve their own novel.

If you could sum up Stygian's Honor in three words, what would they be?
A real story, with added spice
Have you listened to any of Brianna Bronte’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Brianna is a wonderful narrator and so very easy to listen to
Any additional comments?
A great series, a pity they are not all published but Audible and the publisher assure me more are on the way
