Publisher's Summary

In a near-deserted coastal village, odd things are happening. Strangers are asking questions about the town's recluse. A local hunter discovers naked footprints in the snow. The stray dog population has ceased to exist. And with winter's most powerful weapon bearing down, things are about to become much, much worse. A werewolf book. Not a romance. Not at all.

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.

Action packed and riveting

If you love werewolf books, this is one you cannot pass up!  Set in a small, isolated town of Amherst Cove in Newfoundland the Warden, Borland is meddling dangerously with mother nature – he is creating a unique werewolf breed that will destroy everyone and everything.  Disillusioned with the hierarchy and rules of the werewolf world, Borland begins breeding a stronger, more deadly werewolf out of revenge.

Werewolves and Wardens, Kirk and Ross must enter Amherst and destroy Borland, a warden who doesn’t follow the rules.  Little did they know what Borland had done – with the help of a human, Ross and Kirk move to destroy Borland’s breeding successes and hide everything from the outside world.

What happens next is horrifying and goes against nature.  How many will survive the night?  And if Ross and Kirk manage to save the small cove, what happens next?  If they survive will they be able to retire with their scars and wounds or will they face the same type of fate as Borland?  Borland warned them - and now they are wondering what if!?!

Action packed and riveting, Keith Blackmore weaves a story that takes the listener deeper into the werewolf world than any other author.  Masterfully weaving horror, he is reminiscent of other horror writers who have captivated readers with everyday occurrences and objects.  Blackmore, however, is much more intense, his monsters are more deadly and provides a unique take on the werewolf tale.    Blackmore has strong writing skills, moving the story at a steady pace building his characters thoroughly and providing twists that will leave the listener shaking their head in shock.

Sean Runnette does an excellent reading of Blackmore’s Breeds, Book 1.  His ability to step into the book and inject the emotion, danger and fear is amazing.  His pitch is perfect and he has a skill that projects the right amount of cynical and sarcastic tones.   Runnette’s voice is sure, confident and calming.  I could listen to him for hours.

This is truly an excellent book if you enjoy werewolves, horror and action.   It is truly unique!

There were no issues with production, everything was clear and concise.  No background issues.
