I was so saddened recently to learn that we lost one of our own, the talented AC Katt. I had the pleasure of meeting this lovely, gentle woman at GRL and, let me just say, the light in the sky dimmed the day she left us. My heart goes out to her family, she will be missed. I’m using my time this month to talk about one of Katt’s books that recently released on Audio. She really was a talented Author who’s heart and soul will live on not only with and through those she loved, but through the words she poured onto paper.
Remy’s Painter | Werewolves of Manhattan book 2
Written by AC Katt | Narrated by Joel Leslie
Any additional comments?Okay, I just have to say that there is one thing about this book, this series, that drives me up the wall… WHY are the females always referred to as “Bitch” or “Alpha Bitch”?!?!?!! This could very easily be a five star story for me but hearing the females called by this moniker over and over, and the Alphas say it like the woman should feel proud to be “Bitches”. NO, don’t like this, wish it would stop.
That being said, I pretty much enjoyed everything else about the story. You get to learn more about the loup garou in this story, their history and why things are done certain ways and I was intrigued by the ins and outs of their pack(s) and the hierarchy of their race. Remy was a seventy year old virgin, feeling like he needed to save that part of himself for his mate. This made Remy a bit of a bear to be around most of the time. Enter Ian. He’s been through so much in his young life but one thing he’s not is a pushover. He stands up to Remy, doesn’t put up with the attitude, growling and occasional bad attitude from his mate. He doesn’t give a flip if he’s an alpha.
The treat in this story was written almost as an after thought, secondary, but still very real. The fact that Katt didn’t delve too deep or spend a lot of time trying to flesh out the bad guy made him that much more threatening in my mind and I liked that a lot.
Narrated by Joel Leslie and I seriously have to ask, is there anything this man can’t do? The level of emotion and variance of voices, tones and nuances at his disposal continue to impress me with every new book I listen to.
If you enjoy a good shifter story with a little something different to give it an edge, you should consider this series.
