Want to know where the real wild things are. . .and what they like to do there? Then listen to Belong to the Night to find out!

In "The Wolf, the Witch, and Her Lack of Wardrobe" by Shelly Laurenston, Jamie Meacham has enough trouble controlling her supernatural abilities. Thus, there's no time for lust, or for Tully Smith, even with his smoldering amber eyes. But Tully's grappling with his own animal instincts, as a powerful shifter-wolf trying to protect all his territory - including a certain sassy witch - from vicious rivals.

In "In the Dark" by Cynthia Eden, FBI agent and leopard-shifter Sadie James' undead ex, Liam, still arouses her deepest desires - and distracts her from tracking the brutal rogue-shifter who is terrorizing Miami. By teaming up with Liam, Sadie has a better chance of solving the case, but as passion consumes them, she stands to lose more than just her heart.

In "City of the Dead" by Sherrill Quinn, Dori Falcon is a witch with a plan: Get to New Orleans, locate her missing brother, and recover the Eye of Bastet, a mysterious and powerful amulet. Her plan never included falling for the sexy Cajun cop Jake Boudreau - but without his help, she may never find the demon who has her brother, and the key to her family's survival.

Poor reader ruins good read.

Shelly Laurenston has a fine pen for dialogue, and a talent for developing fun, lovable characters. What a shame to ruin this with a reader who has no differentiation between characters and the worst excuse for a southern accent ever.

only first story, narrator was not for me

Is there anything you would change about this book?

the narrator

Would you recommend Belong to the Night to your friends? Why or why not?

not really, maybe in ebook. the laurenston story was the only one I read and it was not her usual style, which I really like, but it was still OK. I don't regret the story, only the narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

accent was all wrong, did the male voices weird, just.. not that great

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

probably not

Any additional comments?

nope

Not a fan of the narrator

What did you like best about this story?

The stories are good. I didn't realize I already had this one on Kindle. After hearing them I remembered them. I liked them a lot better in print.

Would you be willing to try another one of Lucinda Gainey’s performances?

no not really. She reads very clearly but it's choppy. I didn't realize she was trying to use an Irish accent at first in the second book. She miss pronounces a lot of the Cajun words in the third book and her Cajun accent is as bad as her Irish one.

I would put her more with a proper English book. Maybe even a kids book. There are just too many pauses for me to follow well. It's almost like a kiddie roller coaster. Up and down with lots of pauses but never too high or too low.

Drooling Narrator Wrecked if for me!

I've been waiting to write this review to see if my opinions calm down at all, but they haven', so here goes.
The Stories in this collection, while nothing to write home about, were ok. In full disclosure, I only made it through the first two because the narrator, Lucinda Gainey, was positively atrocious.. I just couldn't listen to one more minute of her! Most of the time, she sounded like she had a mouth full of spittle or drool., I can't explain it but it was NOT a good thing! Also, it sounded from time to time like she yawned, and she pronounced words like "Patchouli" and "Aerolia" very strangely. Nevermind her total inability of executing an accent successfully. She would begin with one (poorly) then slip in and out of it. Ugg. Her voice, towards the end of the second book, grated on my nerves worse than nails on a chalk-board!

"The Wolf the Witch and her Lack of Wardrobe" by Shelly Laurenston was a cute story, but I feel it could have been far more developed. There was a lot of opportunity for this to be a full novel and suffered greatly by being truncated. (For instance, there is a lot of refrence to the magical powers female protagonist Jamie Meacham has, but I feel they are very under explored. Especially the story line about her working to be a "God's Champion". I don't understand why that is even in the book because that story line goes so undeveloped.. In sum, it was a cute story, likeable characters, but too short to really gain any momentum.

"In the Dark" by Cynthia Eden was a hard listen for me. By the time I got to this story, I was mad that "The Wolf, The Witch, and her lack of Wardrobe" was so incomplete and the ongoing drooling by the narrator was making me sick to my stomach but I gave it a chance. It had a weak opening, and from the start, I didn't feel it held much promise. I just feel this story never followed through on the characters. There are hints at what a powerful Vampire Lliam is/has become, and all of his experiences since he went through the change, it touches on Sadie being a shifter/FBI agent extraordinaire, but never goes into the background. and in the end, they both seem sort of love sick and inept. I especially didn't like how weak Lliam came across.

Frustrated with the underdevelopment in the first two stories, and utterly DONE with the disgusting slurping of the narrator and her pathetic attempt at accents (I didn't even want to imagine how she'd butcher a cajun accent!), I didn't even bother with the 3rd novella. Sorry! This collection just didn't do it for me!

Nice set of Paranormal Stories.

This anthology is a great listen, especially if you like shifters, witches and vampires.

Shelly Laurenston, Cynthia Eden, and Sherrill Quinn all contribute stories so it’s a great way to try out what these authors have to offer.

These stories are performed by Lucinda Gainey who is new to me. She had a good balance of male to female voices.

I listened to this through Audible Escape.

2 out of 3

The first two stories were absolutely awesome. The characters were well developed and even though I didn’t really care for the narrator, she did an OK job. The third story was just meh. Didn’t finish it.
