War? Peace? Warewolf vs. Faye

This ninth installment is very well done. A plot that keeps you listening. This is a tough one to put down. There are parts of this book you will want to rewind and listen to several times in a good way. Mercedes and Adam take center stage as everyone clashes. We get to see many of our favorites as this story unfolds. Brigss finds a way to weave important contemporary messages into this supernatural narrative -- in a subtle way.

This story has a hint of romance, but is mostly action. It is fast paced and doesn't stall anywhere. Those who like supernatural will enjoy this. You will miss a great deal if you don't listen to the earlier novels. You can read this first, but you might be lost because of the many characters and the nuances as Briggs relies on the backstories of the past. Kings narration is superb.

I highly recommend this novel. I am anxious to listen to the next installment. Thumbs up and give it a read.

Any additional comments?

I have thoroughly enjoyed this whole series. My one complaint is that several of the characters were missing their usual voices. Lorelei King is an awesome narrator who brings depth and interest to each of the characters, both male and female. The voices and accents have been consistent through the whole series until this book, where they suddenly were forgotten. If you haven't followed the whole series, you may not notice but it is disconcerting when a certain characters suddenly have different voices and therefor personalities. Hence 4 stars instead of 5. I am still looking forward to the next book in the series.
