Publisher's Summary

As a child, dog-loving Brenna Fallon naively invokes an ancient Celtic deity to save her beloved hound - and inadvertently anchors the new-found power at a spring on her family's farm.
She doesn't know she's also left an opening for a far more malevolent force.
Years later, thanks to the actions of several angry young men, Brenna discovers the terrible potential of that gateway. With a devastating plague unfolding abruptly around her, she must depend on her wits, a stranger she doesn't trust, and a mysterious stray dog who becomes more than just a faithful companion as she struggles to drive back the threat of a modern Black Death.
Welded by a desperate sacrifice, woman, man, and dog face the feral darkness together.

A Feral Frustration

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I don't know if a different narrator could have improved the story for me.

What was most disappointing about Doranna Durgin’s story?

That I couldn't listen to the complete recording to actually judge the story.

What didn’t you like about Cris Dukehart’s performance?

I felt that it was stilted, and that there were awkward pauses that were obviously representative of written punctuation.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Frustration and disappointment: I don't know if I simply disliked the narrator's performance, or if it was a combination of the poor narration AND the story itself.

Could not get past the 2nd chapter

The story seems viable as a fiction story. However the "narration" sounds like it is being read by a low cost version of Alexa. I will have to read this on the page to maybe be able to rate it higher, but this is a perfect example of the difference between narrating a book and performing a book for the voice talent.
