ONE YOUNG FK AT A TIME
I am a big fan of Blackmore, just read my reviews for Hospital and Mountain Man Omnibus. I was very excited to get this. I thought Blackmore came up with a unique twist on Werewolves and I really liked Max, the German Shepard. Honestly I could not keep my mind on this. Other than Max, I did not really care for any of the other characters and running around eating people only goes so far with me. Part of the problem could be the narrator. I have never really cared for his patronizing voice. Thousands love him. I knew going in, he was narrating, but if written well enough, I figured I would enjoy. I have enjoyed other books he has narrated. I am afraid this book suffers from Trilogyitis. This book was stretched out in order to save something for the next two books. I will not continue this series.

Not for the faint of heart...Trying to go outside my comfort zone and listen to new things, I liked this listen but the gore factor is 10 plus, it comes down to war of Breeds and one barely makes it out. This is a series, not quite good enough for me to continue on, the narrator did a good job but there were a lot of characters and it was difficult for me to distinguish between them at times.

What did you like most about Breeds, Book 1?
I only bought this book because I enjoyed the Mountain Man series so much. I am glad I did. Brilliantly written and excellently narrated.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Borland. Even though he isn't really one of the main characters he was believable and 3-dimentional; not at all your typical 2-dimentional "bad guy".
What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?
His accents. Runnette did an excellent job of bringing the book and the characters to life.
Any additional comments?
A note to Keith Blackmore (even though I doubt he'll ever read it): Please stay away from overworked, tired cliches. I sighed when I heard the narrator speak the words "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world he didn't exist" - although this has been used in too many books, tv shows and movies to mention it reminds me of the awful Swatzenegger movie End of Days. You're writing is so much better than that and such a cheap line betrays your talent and taints your work!
A note to Audible: I really hope Audible have plans to bring more of Blackmore's books to listeners. I am very disappointed that there are only 2 series of books from this writer. The Mountain Man series of books are my favourite downloads from my many years of membership and Breeds book 1 was almost as good.

I'm not getting the narrator as much as I did RC BRAY. but not so bad I didn't get drawn in
to the story. Quite good but MM is a hard one to follow so if judged on its own still a great book.

I don't normally do this genre of book, but the supernatural themes seem to beckon. The authors' crafting of the scenery and characters in vivid detail and the dialogue turn of phrase, whilst very course at times, being me from edge do your seat to out loud chuckle, all in the space of a minute or so. If you don't mind raw bloody violence and salty language, give it a go.

I wouldn't normally go for a werewolf book, but I like this author, so I gave it a go. I'm glad I did. This book takes the classic werewolf story in a new direction. Loved it. :)
