Publisher's Summary

What has she done? With a new identity, a staged death, and a chance to flee the treachery that stalks her, Rachael has escaped from a faceless assassin. Now, thousands of miles from home, under the lush canopy of the rain forest, she's found sanctuary.

Where can she hide? In this world teeming with unusual creatures walks the most exotic of them all. His name is Rio. A native of the forest imbued with a fierce prowess, he is something to be desired. Possessed of secrets of his own, he is something to be feared.

Whom can she trust? As Rachael's past looms as oppressively as the heat of the forest, and as Rio unleashes the secret animal instincts that course through his blood, Rachael fears that her isolated haven has become an inescapable hell.

Listen to the first book in this series: The Awakening (Unabridged).

ROAR!!!

This is a good Christine Feehan story, her Leopard series is a favorite. Renee Raudman is an awesome narrator. She doesn't just read the story, but she enacts and lives it. She characterizes the different protagonists with skill.

I enjoy female narrators with a deeper voice that Renee has. She pulls off dry sarcasm without sounding at all whiny. She also narrates the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews - which are also an awesome favorite!

Great book, so-so narration.

This is one of my favorite Christine Feehan novels. I'm not too crazy about the narrator, but she does an okay job. I agree with the previous review--Rio always seemed angry; there didn't seem to be a lot of difference in his emotions. I do highly recommend the book, though, if you like the shapeshifter/romance genre.

Narrator ruined the book

It was so difficult to listen to this narrator. Didn't they have a producer to review Renee's work. She is horrible. Good grief, she made the leading man sound mad and angry all the time. I would avoid any audiobooks with the narrator.

Liked the book, Hated the narration!

It's always so sad when the narrator makes a good book so painful to listen to. I'm with the other two reviewers here, Raudman makes Rio sound so hateful and angry that it makes listening to this book very difficult. She does Rachel well but that's about it, the tribesman sound like children and the basic narration is harsh in tone. Such a disappointment for a book I was so looking forward to. As we all know, it's amazing the difference the narrator makes to a book, take Feehan's Ghostwalker series, Tom Stechschutle takes those books from good to fabulous! I so wish he had narrated this one!

Ok Story - Bad Narrator

The narrator did not help the character development. Seemed like Rio was always mad.

No connection with this story !!

Any additional comments?

I LOVED Christine Feehan;s Ghostwalker series so i didn't hesitate to sample this book... I tried 4 times to get into this story but I just couldn't stay focused. It was Soooo boring that i even wrote my shopping list while the book was playing. The narrator also bored me, her voice was awful. Sadly this story was not for me...

It was alright

I struggled to finish...I read this book when I was younger and back then it seemed so much better but after listening to it I was trying to see what exactly I liked so much about it. it was ok it just seemed like something was missing for me but I did enjoy the narrator she did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life I would totally listen to her read another book.

A different spin on shifters

Right off the bat, I want to address the narration. She’s not a horrible narrator and it wasn’t so bad that I couldn’t enjoy the book but, she didn’t fit; especially for the males. It made a potentially great book into a good book.
I did find the relationship between the human and jaguar side of the characters interesting. They were two different entities that shared the same body. It wasn’t one person who could take two forms. It was up to the human side to keep the animal side, in check.
I did feel like the Heroine’s reluctance to come clean with the Hero annoying. This man is your soul mate, you should be able to trust that you’re other half would be able to accept every part of you and your past.
I also did not like the way that the Heroine seemed unable to filter her mouth. She was rude and didn’t seem to be able to discuss an issue without getting over emotional; a pet peeve of mine.
Oh well, overall, I found this a fairly unique storyline and I’m looking forward to book two.
The only thing that confuses me is that this group of shifters which live in the setting of the Carpathian’s Vampires and Jaguars, in the Dark series, doesn’t seem to be aware of the other supernatural beings, they live around. Not to mention, if the timeline is parallel to the Dark series, which it seems to be, how is it that the Leperds have stay ignorant of the turmoil going on in the rainforest? Of course , I’m assuming that the two timelines are running parallel; perhaps I’m wrong. I suppose time will tell if there is any intersection of the plots, of the Dark and Lepord series.

captivating

It has my full attention from start to finish. I love the storytelling and the sex scenes are very well written, it's like I'm watching it. I have read most of the books in the Leopard Series and I look forward to reading the rest of Christine Feehan's books. ...........................................................................................................................................

Christine Feehan does it again!

Number 2 is even better than book 1. Keep it up Christine. I look forward to the rest of the series
