Publisher's Summary

Loup Garron was born and raised in Santa Olivia, an isolated, disenfranchised town next to a U.S. military base inside a demilitarized buffer zone between Texas and Mexico. A fugitive "Wolf-Man" who had a love affair with a local woman, Loup's father was one of a group of men genetically manipulated and used by the U.S. government as a weapon. The "Wolf-Men" were engineered to have superhuman strength, speed, sensory capability, stamina, and a total lack of fear, and Loup, named for and sharing her father's wolf-like qualities, is marked as an outsider.

Loved it, and I don't like Boxing

Boxing has to be my least favorite sport. I don't even like any of the rocky movies. I was skeptical then when I noticed what a big role boxing played in this book. But it was an amazing listen. The world created in this book is vivid and fascinating and the characters have real depth. Though it isn't a fast paced book I was never bored. I found myself coming up with reasons to drive around in my car so I could listen to more of this book.

Also I thought the reader did an excellent job she added to the experience of hearing the story and did not distract from it with a strange accent or annoying voices.

Different from Kushiel

This was my first audiobook so I wanted to pick something I knew I would like.Well, I did and I didnt. This book is nothing like the Kushiel books,if thats what your looking for..dont get this book.To me this book is total drama with very little adventure.I liked the readers voice but I started wishing she would just read and not change tone for the male roles.The f word was used overmuch.Loup had little emotion,when her love done her wrong you got nothing...no anger just "I understand".The description of the book is slightly misleading but the story was good and very different.If a Santa Olivia 2 comes out I will want to read it just to see what happens next.
