Publisher's Summary

Assassin. Soldier. Arrow. That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of all he's done, he exists in the shadows, far from the hope his people can almost touch - if only they do not first drown in the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life. For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake....
Having rebuilt her life after medical "treatment" that violated her mind and sought to suffocate her abilities, Ivy should have run from the black-clad Arrow with eyes of winter frost. But Ivy Jane has never done what she should. Now, she'll fight for her people, and for this Arrow who stands as her living shield, yet believes he is beyond redemption. But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy's fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness.

Poor quality of recording and Narration

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

As always this is a good addition to the series.

What other book might you compare Shield of Winter to and why?


How could the performance have been better?

Narrator ended each sentence by emphasizing the last word, starting low going high and back to low. Then she would pause. Also the esp. towards the end of the book, the volume would increase, decrease or sound as if it were in a tunnel before reverting back to normal. Very distracting.

Writing is brilliant, as usual; however...

What would have made Shield of Winter better?

Angela Dawe failed this story. Her narration was discordant, lacking both harmony and rhythm, and her inflection was atrocious. I was so shocked at her narration that I looked back on the others to see if I'd just failed to remember poor narration. No, she did a beautiful job in all but this one.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Shield of Winter?

I was unable to finish the audiobook due to poor narration. I downloaded the print version on my Kindle, but it'll be weeks before I have the time to sit and read it. That is why I always pre-order my favorite authors on Audible. The first seven chapters had brilliant writing, but were a struggle to listen to.

How could the performance have been better?

Angela Dawe's narration could have been consistent with previous books in this series.

Any additional comments?

Nalini Singh has written a brilliant book; however, the narration was awful. I will have to find the time to finish the book in print and this might well be the end of pre-ordering the Audible version. Definitely, for the next one, I'll wait to test a sample before I buy it.
