If you could sum up Bloodfire in three words, what would they be?
It seems that half of the books I read with a female super power lead have them as either self abusive women, or caught in excessive bad boy mode. Mack is neither of these and refreshing, the other characters and story are also refreshing.
What other book might you compare Bloodfire to and why?
The Mercy Thompson series or Kitty Norville series are other great female lead series. While I generally loved those as well, this story had its own sense of flare and unexpected results and subtle sub stories.
Which character – as performed by Saskia Maarleveld – was your favorite?
The lead Mack, she was not weak, not into bad boys, she had great depth and convictions right along with her flaws. The internal struggles were great and not over powering the story and she resulted in a very believable character.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
yes, and then some.
Any additional comments?
So far I like the world she created for her story.

The book summary really didn't do this book justice. I found it an excellent read with a lot more complexity than I was expecting..
It follows the well-trodden path of a magical world separate to the "muggle" world with rules about not letting the non-magical people find out about the reality of magic. However it establishes a good universe through which the story unwinds. The characters are all rich and have a depth to them, and the author doesn't separate them into distinct good/bad groups.
After reading this book I immediately downloaded the next in the series. I rarely do that.
To top it all off, the narrator is brilliant. Her performance significantly enhances the experience and adds an additional dimension to the main character.
She is so good that I would pay to hear her read a telephone directory.

The heroine got a little bit whiny from time to time but it was nice to see her try her best and not need rescuing all the time like so many other heroines in this genre.

Mack was a great character. Loved her fiery temperament & loyalty to her pack. Loved the pace of the story & great narration from Saskia Maarleveld. Can't wait to continue on with the series.
This was absolutely flipping amazing! I had no expectations for it and it really did surprise me. I loved every bit of the story and the narrator is great!
