Publisher's Summary

Jin Rayne is still growing into his frightening new powers as a nekhene cat and his place as reah of Logan Church’s tribe when he learns that a sepat, an honor challenge, has been called. Logan, who has never wanted to do anything but lead his small-town tribe, must travel around the world to Mongolia and fight to become the most powerful leader in the werepanther world.

Logan won’t be the only one making the journey. As his mate, Jin must fight with him to honor his commitment to Logan, his culture, and his tribe. But the trial is long, involving a prolonged separation between the two men, and Logan’s humanity is at stake. In order to make it through the nightmarish sepat, Jin and Logan must accept their fates, trust each other, and honor the vows between them no matter the cost.

Better than the Narration of Trusted Bond but not

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes it was but not because of the narration but because of the story.

What other book might you compare Honored Vow to and why?

Trusted Bond that Honored Vow's narration was only slightly better but still have the same problems of not much diversity in the voices, so it was easy to mix up who was saying what and what was being narrated if you haven't read the book. Also in every single chapter start the name of the book was mentioned like there was a chance of the listener ever forgetting it so it bear repeating. The thing that made it better than Trusted Bond's narration was the fact that we didn't had to hurry along to follow what was going on, this narration was better paced.

One of the bad things was the name Yusuke -and who knows what other name- was read wrongly. It's Yu-su-ke not Yu-suk! That almost had me going back to the book and checking to see if I remember correctly that the tribe of Reshep was from Japan and not another country!

The other book I will compare it too is Change of Heart that Sean Crisden's still remains the best of all.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Really the narrator did detract from the book. His narration was just not rich enough. Not much feeling or diversity in the voices, as mentioned before, can lead to confusion to someone that isn't familiar with the book.

And the fact that the terminology and names were read wrongly isn't warming up to it.

Do you think Honored Vow needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Honowred Vow has a follow up book, Crucible of Fate and I'd love to see that one being turned to audiobook, even though Trusted Bond's and Honored Vow's narrations weren't as good as Change of Heart's was.

Any additional comments?

If Crucible of Fate is turned to audiobook can it be narrated by Sean Crisden?

Honored vows

Would you listen to Honored Vow again? Why?

Yes! I already have listened and read Honored Vow multiple times because the story is wonderful.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I always adore Jin and Logan, they are such a great pairing and they are always fun and exciting to read about.

Domin Thorne is getting better with each story and I hope audible will have the next book 'Crucible..." on audio soon, I have already read the book half a dozen times.

Crane is such a sweetheart and I love him.

Which character – as performed by Jeff Gelder – was your favorite?

I haven't a favourite performance, Jeff does an excellent job.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Logan calls to Crane in Cranes' room, after Jin makes him shift back to human, that scene with Logan and Crane is so touching. The bond between the Semel and his people is shown in such a simple and moving way in this scene.

Any additional comments?

Just hope Mary Calmes and Audible continue to work together and create more of the Change of Heart series.

I love this series, horrible robotic narrator.

Would you listen to Honored Vow again? Why?

No, the narration is monotone, no character to voices, painful.

What did you like best about this story?

Love the series and the imaginative made up world of Calmes' shifters.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jeff Gelder’s performances?

No. I'll stay away from this narrator from now on.

Who was the most memorable character of Honored Vow and why?

Always to me it's Jin.

Any additional comments?

Too bad they switched narrators. Sean Crisden was my favorite.

NICE! Great Ending

WOW the ending totally was unexpected. I loved it. I am so happy how things turned out. I was actually worried for Logan and Jin. I was scared they would have to leave thier home, but I just love how it all played out in the end. Super Happy. The only negative I have is the switch of roles right at the end. Ummmm.... Why was that needed. I don't think that was needed and Logan is just not bottom... I don't care what the reasons where... Logan is not a bottom in no universe!

Great book and great ending. I actually hope just one more book comes out... Yari and Duncan story... Super Cute don't cha think.

Needs better audio editing

It's a good installment to the series. I like the narrator. Audio post-production needs work.

A must read/listen

This series is incredible. First read them many years ago. This series means so much to me, thru this book series and a matter of time, I learnt about positive male relationships and the possibility of happiness as a gay male, having grown up in a small town I was the only gay, I was 18 before I met anyone like me. I relied on these book to help me get through and to see there was hope.

Great story, but...

Even though this narrator did slow down his speech a little, there were still pronunciation issues, the same monotone voice for every character, and obvious errors and repeats that weren't edited out in production. He's probably one of the worst narrators I've ever heard on Audible.

Can anyone explain why he said the Title of the book at every single chapter, instead of just saying the chapter? WTF!

The story was an incredible addition to the Series. I am very happy to see they changed narrators for the next two books.

it's become hard to read this

the narration of this series is always terrible and up until this book the plot made up for it but now it's just ridiculous, Jin is a hot mess, he knows it and does nothing about it instead he does stupid things like leaving safety without any guard or losing control of his powers and knowing it but not doing anything about it. Logan is just as bad because hes the only one whi can help him control himself but still leaves him alone and unstable and then blames him for acting rashly when he obviously has no control over himself
