Publisher's Summary

In a near-deserted coastal village, odd things are happening. Strangers are asking questions about the town's recluse. A local hunter discovers naked footprints in the snow. The stray dog population has ceased to exist. And with winter's most powerful weapon bearing down, things are about to become much, much worse. A werewolf book. Not a romance. Not at all.

OMG!!! SERIOUSLY?

WOW! A genre I never thought I'd go near. Excellent and gripping.
After The Mountain Man series and now this, I'm hooked on Keith C Blackmore. Book 2 downloaded and third book purchased already.
Love that it takes place in Canada and has lots of Canadian terms and slang.
Narrator a bit slow but speeding up the playback a bit solved that.

Add another feather in Keith's cap!

I LOVED THE MOUNTAIN MAN OMNIBUS! And the prequel was very much wanted and needed. Already owning all of his other works, I decided to dive into this. I'll admit it did take me about an hour to get in the "groove", but well worth the wait! And to think, I have two more additions to listen to!😎

Blackmore is amazing

I didn’t know how I’d feel listening to Breeds after Mountain Man. It did take me a bit to get into this one. It wasn’t love at the first few seconds like with Gus. But once the story began to take off I was really connected.

The way Blackmore creates and layers characters is amazing, the build was slow but really pleasant. I think the sequels will be even better, I cannot wait to hear what happens.

I love this author!

This was my first book after completing "The Mountain Man"series, which took over my life it was so great! I love the originality of the story, and graphic details that at times had my mouth hanging open with shock, but no one reads a werewolf book for a romantic happy ending. I also really enjoyed the backstory of the politics of werewolf society, with "marshalls" and high order werewolves who call the shots. Can't wait to start book two!

Mr Blackmore is the man!

Finally Mr Blackmore returns! One of my favourite zombie authors has delivered a new title 'Breed'. It is not a zombie title but boy was it good! It gets even better, Sean Runnette is the narrator. This guy has the perfect voice for any of Keith C Blackmore's characters, that is if you speed it up to at least 1.25x speed and easily 1.5x speed in most parts.

Seriously I couldn't get enough of this one. Stuff it I am not going to sprout on about this.... just do yourself a favour and buy this one, in fact do yourself a favour and pre order the second one!

Every bit as good as the Mountain Man series. Perhaps better!

Good old Blackmore!

I'm just fascinated by the way Blackmore writes. He's so down-to-earth about it. feels like real conversations

Not a typical werewolf story

I thought this was going to be a typical werewolf story. I was pleasantly surprised when it explored experimentation and perversion of the werewolf 'breed'. Many characters were well flawed and likable. Parts of the story written from the animal's perspective was unexpected and enjoyable. The narrator punctuated the setting and character in a believable and enjoyable manner. Loved it!

Very vivid

This was a very entertaining book. I enjoyed the story and the authors very vivid descriptions. The only thing I found I did not like was some of the dialog between characters. While I in no way mind cussing, some of the cussing was a little excessive in some parts of the book, and seemed forced. Many of the characters ranged from 60-80 years old, and some of their dialogue was unrealistic. The verbiage sounded out of place. A 70 year old Scotch Irish werewolf saying "bring it homie", just doesn't sound right to me. But, that's just my opinion and I may have misheard the reader. Overall it was an entertaining and creative book, with some excellent descriptive writing. I will be reading part two of this series.
