One night after a long day at the hospital, Doctor David Lephmann is confronted by the realities of life in Monster Central, when he intervenes in a fight he knows nothing about. Two women are fighting for their lives in the street, and before he can really think about it, he foolishly chooses sides and wades into the battle. One moment he’s restraining a remarkably strong and lithe woman, the next he’s struggling to escape a huge wolf! The shapeshifter savages him, and shatters his new life. Sorely wounded and infected with lycanthropy, he’s thrust into a world of violence and mistrust where the only thing that matters is strength.
Hoping to find the shifter who destroyed his life, he allies himself with a powerful master vampire. He certainly hadn’t been looking for werewolf romance while fighting for his life, but there’s something very intriguing about a certain shifter woman, and fighting isn't on his mind whenever he sees her beguiling eyes and snarling lips.
With no way back to his old life, he must fight for a place in this new one, but he’s never had to fight for anything in his life. Can he survive the challenge?
I felt the story started out strong. I was instantly pulled into it. Also, Mikael Naramore is impressive as a narrator.
Then, as it continued on, I felt more and more confused. I was able to eventually figure out what was going on, to an extent. But, instead of connecting them together, he'd add in another story. There's many times I would back track listening just to see if I missed anything, but I hadn't. It isn't until the end that you've got any sort of clue what's going on.
It isn't that it is a bad story, quite the opposite. The characters were fascinating. The narration was great. It was just very hard to keep up with and difficult to enjoy a story where you feel like you're a bit off for missing important things that haven't actually been stated yet.
