Audio Book Review: Moon Hunted (Mirror Lake Wolves #2) By Jennifer Snyder
Moon Hunted - Jennifer Snyder

 

 

The good news: This book was better than the first book. The bad news: Not by much. The story did a much better job at keeping me intrigued and moved along at a nice pace. The main character, however, just dragged everything down with her.

 

Mina seems to be getting worse. She over complicates things that shouldn't require all that much to deal with. Mina is unreasonably overprotective of her sister but only knows how to bad mouth her when she gets a puppy. Mina second guesses her so-called relationship with Alec but can't bring herself to step back and evaluate her feelings for Eli. Mina has proven to be dense and too stupid to live at this point.

 

Eli was great in this novel. He was the perfect amount of understanding and caring towards Mina. When things hit the fan he's there taking charge to deal with it. At this point, I think he'd be better off without her.

 

I still dislike Alec. A few of his friends are creeps and he still hangs around them. He doesn't mesh with the paranormal side to this story and, for the most part, gets left behind in the dust or has a scene or two weaved in for the sake of it.

 

This novel did a great job at getting me hooked on the mystery. Though I saw the ending coming from a mile away and it was also too convenient I still want to know what happens next. I wonder how many books Alec will last at this rate.

 

The Audio Book:

 

 

I'm still not a fan of this narrator. Nicole naturally reads slowly and loves to pause at weird intervals in sentences. I listened to this audio book sped up to 1.25 and her voice sounded normal (and that's coming from someone who doesn't necessarily love speeding up audio books). I'm still hoping for a change in the narrator for future books in this series.

New Release Review! Hunted (Coven of the Raven #2) Shona Husk!

 

 

 

People coming to the Uncommon Raven Agency for protection, are at the end of the line.

 

Noah Kelly takes the cases no other bodyguard will, the ones where demons are hunting the victim. Trouble is, he’s never managed to stop a demon from killing. Not even to save the girlfriend whose murder he was acquitted of four years ago. Since then he’s been determinedly single as he tries to find a way to stop demons and ease his guilt.

 

Rachel Jarrett knew she was in trouble when the divorce lawyer she’d been dealing with is found dead—his limbs torn off. She runs, desperate to flee her husband, and finds herself at the Uncommon Raven Agency in the hands of a man with his own secrets. When she tells Noah what she’s seen he doesn’t laugh. He talks about possession.

 

For Noah, falling into bed with a client was always going to be bad news, but when her ex is a demon it could be fatal.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Hunted is a thrilling and suspenseful paranormal romance with strong, captivating characters that easily draw readers into their story. Noah and Rachel are forbidden lovers since Rachel is the client and Rachel is on the run from her ex which means this romance starts off with quite a bit of excitement and things just get hotter from there. Sizzling chemistry heat up the pages and the readers can practically feel the emotional turmoil that flows from the pages as Noah and Rachel both have quite a bit of angst due to the past and the current situation.

 

The plot is fast paced and full of thrilling suspense adrenaline pumping excitement and surprising twists that keeps readers on their toes with lots of action to ensure that there is never a dull moment to be found. The author has created a fascinating world about a coven of male witches who offer protection for people who have exhausted all other options and she has creatively used her own spin on a classic evil that adds flair and interest to her world. This story has a hero that is sexy but flawed and in a continuous battle with his own inner demons which captures readers’ hearts.

The Hunted, Trackers 2 by Nicholas Sansbury Smith
Trackers 2: The Hunted (Trackers series, Book 2) - Nicholas Sansbury Smith

In this sequel, Ty really stood out for me. He’s a kid in a wheelchair being held captive by the leader of white supremacist group lead by General Fenix. His mom, who is somewhere on the east coast, is a Senator and Fenix wants to use Ty to get much needed supplies plus weapons. Ty shows great courage in this book and he’s the character that stands out to me.

Of course Raven Spears and his dog Creek still steal the show. In Book 1, there was a serial killer to hunt down. Having helped out with that, Nathan Sardetti can now rely on Raven to help him rescue Ty and possibly kill Fenix. They make a really good team.

Martha is one of the many refugees that end up in Estes Park. She’s a doctor but she’s also pretty banged up herself. I really liked this minor story line because it brought up a lot of great points about such a calamity. Can Estes Park afford to take in refugees? They have very limited medical supplies and food. Winter is coming. If the refugees don’t bring valuable skills or supplies, should Estes Park take them in? Very realistic to have these tough questions come up.

Meanwhile, over on the east coast, President Diego and what’s left of the government have come to terms with the fact that much of the chain of command is gone. Now Senator Charlize Montgomery, Ty’s mom, has been made Secretary of Defense. Her body guard, Big Al, continues to be a pillar of strength as she gets further along in recovering from her severe injuries sustained in Book 1.

The ladies still have rather limited roles in this series and that surprises me. Having enjoyed the Hell Divers series, I really hoped the ladies would break out of their shells here in Book 2 of this series. Charlize can be excused because of her injuries. I did hope that Raven’s sister Sandra, who is a competent nurse at the Estes Park hospital, would have something bigger to do. Mayor Andrews of Estes Park doesn’t seem to fully grasp how tough their situation is. Police chief Colton has one female officer on staff, Lindsey Plymouth, but she doesn’t get much page time in this story.

Once again, I loved hating on Fenix. He’s crafty and has the luck of the devil himself! He poses a big threat to Estes Park but he’s not going to be taken down easy!

I was pretty sad to have to say goodbye to one of my favorite characters. The action was well mixed with quieter moments. I love seeing how Raven’s character is growing, becoming more confident and trusted by the people of Estes Park. 4.5/5 stars.

The Narration: Bronson Pinchot continues to do well for this series. His female voices are feminine and he has pretty good little kid voices. I really liked his voice for Ty. His voice for President Diego is still a touch over done for me but I can live with it. Pinchot’s pacing is good and there’s no technical issues with this recording. 4.75/5 stars.

A Grimm Tale
Hunted - Meagan Spooner

 

I was going to read a retelling of Sleepy Hollow, but this one caught my eye.  Shiny!

 

A nice change to the retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

The original was never one of my favorite fairy tales - too syrupy, although part of that might be influence of Disney. In my opinion they made them fun, but basically gutted them.

This one was much better.

Hunted by the Past by Jayne Evans
Hunted by the Past - Jayne Evans

Lucy Smith's life is derailed when she has to babysit her nephew after her sister suddenly decides to prolong her vacation. Then she's cornered at a bank, having to shoot a cop to save her nephew...But despite what the cop, who survives, tells her, she's determined things aren't connected. Nothing is about to derail her meticulously planned life.
Then her car blows up, luckily without her in it, her nephew is once more almost kidnapped...And maybe, just maybe, her sister's disappearance isn't as innocuous as it seems.

And the only one Lucy believes can keep her and the little boy safe is the man she shot at the bank...



This story started off with a bang. Almost literally. The mystery was intriguing, the suspense was ramped up to a thousand, the hero was perfectly flawed and issue-filled, the little boy was utterly adorable...The problem, as mostly happens, was the heroine and her control-freak, disbelieving in spite of everything, tendencies. She was a lawyer, but she still presumed to know more than professionals in the field of law enforcement, and there's nothing you can tell me that will dissuade me from my conviction that the successful kidnapping attempt happened because of her and her I-know-better-than-everybody attitude.
The romance was rushed and rather unbelievable...Maybe because it was so rushed or maybe because of my dislike for the heroine, but the suspense worked.

Until the reason behind the kidnapping and murder attempts was revealed...And everything simply fell apart. It was so thin and seemingly conjured out of thin air and it didn't really make much sense. I'm still wondering why.
