Audiobook Review: Panther's Claim (Bitten Point #2) by Eve Langlais
Panther's Claim: Bitten Point Series, Book 2 - Tantor Audio,Eve Langlais,Chandra Skyye

My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.com.

 

I loved my trip back to Bitten Point. This trip there are still shifters that are coming up missing. Cynthia has come to town to try to find her friend. She’s a wolf, but she doesn’t like to shift in front of others. She’s very self-conscious with how her wolf looks. We don’t find out why until almost the end of the book.

 

Daryl is quite the player and the panther in this book. He sees no reason to settle down with a single woman. That is until he accidently marks Cynthia. He had no intention of doing that, did he? He offers to help Cyn search for her friend. He is in complete denial about his feelings for Cyn for most of the book. He so doesn’t want to give up his bachelor life.

 

I don’t feel like we’ve learned a whole lot about what is going on in the town with the disappearances. They keep running into weird smelling shifters who have weird collars on them. They continue to find these shifters on two legs instead of four.

 

We do have Constantine and Princess helping in the search (it will be great to get to their book next). I swear there is something up with that dog. I hope we learn more about her. Caleb was also around to help with the search.

 

There are two real winners in this book. One is that we have opening in each chapter similar to Charley Davidson. Some of those were hilarious.

Daryl’s T-shirt of the day, “I’m a ray of fucking sunshine”.

Constantine’s Shirt, a gift from Daryl: “If my chihuahua doesn’t like you, than neither will I.”

The second is the parents. Both sets of parents are so pushy and involved. I had a lot of fun listening to them.

Cynthia: So thanks for letting Daryl and I have some time alone last night. We managed get a few things talked out.
Mom: So he proposed?
Cynthia: NO!
Mom: Why not?

 

Narration

Once again, I’ve enjoyed listening to the narration. I think Chandra Skyye continues to get better with each book. In this one, she had to do a latino accent of Daryl’s mother, which I thought she handled really well. I think she did great with all the males and female voices. I have come to enjoy her narrations of the books.

 

**I like to thank the publisher for providing me with a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Audiobook Review: Croc's Return (Bitten Point #1) by Eve Langlais
Croc's Return: Bitten Point Series # 1 - Tantor Audio,Eve Langlais,Chandra Skyye

My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.com.

 

This is the first book in a new series by Eve Langlais. It is sort of a spin off of the Kodiak Point series. However, unlike some other spinoffs that I’ve read, you can read this one without having read Kodiak Point (though I highly recommend Kodiak Point, one of my favorite series by Eve). Basically, Bitten Point is a shifter friendly town, just like Kodiak Point. Our hero, Caleb, is just coming back from the same army installment that the Kodiak Point guys were in.

 

Anyway, Caleb is a croc shifter and is just coming back into town after being away at the war. He had left town totally unexpectedly. No one knew why he left and joined the army. It really upset his mother, brother and also his girlfriend. HIs pregnant girlfriend.  Now it is five years later and his son is four years old and has no idea who his father is.

 

Renny hasn’t had it easy since Caleb left her with a child. She is working two jobs to afford to pay all the bills. Four-year-old Luke doesn’t understand why mom is never around. He gets angry with her. He also has a bit of animalistic side to him that he got from his father.

 

There is also some suspense going on in this story. People are going missing. The children are reporting seeing a dinosaur. The shifters are smelling things they’ve never smelled before. We learn more about why Caleb up and left out of nowhere to join the army. It was exactly what I expected from a Eve Langlais story. It was fun, sexy and had some suspense to it as well. I love how Eve isn’t afraid to use animal shifters that aren’t the norm. Caleb’s brother is a snake shifter (one takes after mom and the other takes after dad). I hope he gets a book in this series.

 

Narration

Chandra Skyye is a narrator that I’ve listened to before with the Kodiak Point series. At first, I wasn’t a huge fan of her narration, but she has grown on me. While she will never be on my list as a top narration, I’ve come to be able to enjoy her narrations enough. In this story, we see her ability to add children into the mix, which I thought she did a pretty decent job. I do listen to her at an increased speed.

Point of No Return (The Point Series Book 3) - Olivia Luck

Violet's beloved husband Max dies in a fire fighting accident and this is the story of her recovery from the awful grief and devastation she felt on his loss. Helped by Cameron and his delightful dog Rocky. A nice romantic tale, touching, heartwarming and well written. I haven't read any other books by this author but will do so in the future.
