HUNTED by Rebecca Zanetti
“Ready or Not: Moira Dunne is a witch – the quantum physics kind. Time and space are her playthings. Which might explain why her one-night stand from a hundred years ago has turned up to “claim” her – and request her family’s assistance with the war he’s brewing. But the more she learns about Connlan Kayrs, the more she comes to think this is normal behavior for him….
There’s Nowhere to Hide: When Conn and Moira tumbled on the moonlit grass, Conn hadn’t meant to mark her as his mate for all time. She was only 20! But it wasn’t easy to wait for her. It was even harder to forget her. So when he finally returns for his wicked-hot witch, he’s ready to let the sparks flying. Even if he burns up in flames…..”
From the review at I Am, Indeed:
“Karen White has gone above and beyond in this story: Moira’s Irish lilt and Conn’s decidedly alpha-warrior male, struggling to not appear smug in his “I Told You So”s are both spot on and never miss. This series and her performance are what each listener should demand of their audio: clear, concise, decidedly unique to the characters AND their personalities, with subtle inflection changes, pauses and insets, including one that I can only describe as a ‘verbal eyeroll” (parents of teens will know this one) that enhance and present the emotional elements, add to tension and provide readers with an “I’m there” feeling.
Hands down, one of the best combinations of action-packed engaging story and narrative performance that I have encountered, this is a series that is solidly setting itself into my favorites list.”
From the review at Hot Listens:
“Karen White nails it again. Moira has an Irish brogue and she did a great job with it. She does really well with the males and female voices. I love the voice that she does for Janie, the five year old. I can always tell who is talking based on the voice she is using. She is one of my favorite narrators and she continues to prove that she is fit for that title for me. I highly recommend her narration if you haven’t tried her yet.”
My recording experience:
There was something about Moira that I loved from the very first moment I got to voice her (which was in the previous book, actually). She just came out of my mouth effortlessly. And I so loved Zanetti’s logic about the witchcraft in this book – that its’ all quantum physics that we humans just don’t quite yet understand. Though my ninth grader was studying plasma while I was recording this so maybe some humans are closer than others. And then I’ll have to credit Zanetti for giving me my first labor scene to narrate! Luckily I was awake for mine so I had a clue as to what might be going on. Thankfully, my own personal labor scenes were not quite so violent..
