Red Wolf Audiobook
Dimitri and Jacyee are shifters that have been very close for a long time now. Dimitri claimed Jacyee as his mate in a previous story. He wanted to tell her to keep herself safe. Jacyee is a strong willed tracker and high up in the pack (just below Dimitri). She doesn’t take to being told what to do by anyone but her alpha, Kendrick.
So there is something going on in New Orleans. Kendrick and Dylan have asked Dimitri and Jacyee to go undercover to figure out exactly what is going on and who is leading this new group. They are chosen because they would make good targets. Dimitri is a very strong fighter, but he also has a terrible stutter. He is also frequently mocked because he’s a red wolf, which some see as not pure. He’s often called “coyote”. While this doesn’t bring Dimitri down, because he knows that he could win a fight with any of those mocking him, it would make it easy to infiltrate this cult-like group.
So Dimitri and Jacyee stay in Jazz’s house while in New Orleans. It is a character itself. It has a mind of it’s own and doesn’t mind sharing it’s thoughts. It is also very protective, which vines that will wrap around it to protect from a severe storm. When the second floor is damaged, it just repairs itself.
So Dimitri and Jacyee meet up with a bear shifter who is working to convince shifters in the power of the goddess. He does some “magic” by sticking his hand in the fire and not getting burned, but it isn’t magic, just a magic trick. The more we learn about about Brice, the more suspicious he seems.
So this story wasn’t the best romance and the mystery wasn’t all that mysterious, but I still had a ton of fun in this world that Jennifer Ashley as created. I loved how Dimitri didn’t allow his stutter to define him. I love how Jacyee is a strong female and that didn’t intimate Dimitri in the slightest. He frequently admits that her strength is one things he loves most about her. Neither need the other to complete themselves, but they are stronger as a pair. This is a story that I read mostly for the characters. The characters are wonderful, so even if the romance isn’t my favorite or if I figure out who the bad guy is quickly, I still love spending time with these characters.
Red Wolf Narration
Cris Dukehart does an amazing job with the narration of this book. She did a great job with Dimitri and his stuttering. You could really tell when he was getting frustrated and when he was willing to just work through it. The way she had Jacyee finishing his sentences without her sounding condescending was great. I love listening to her narration of this series.
