Friday Giveaway: Leopard’s Hunt by Christine Feehan

Posted February 16, 2024 by Lucy D in Contests & Giveaways / 8 Comments

Happy Friday!

I wanna know how it is possible to be such a latecomer to the Fourth Wing series. It received the best Romantasy in Goodreads this year. Worse, there was a scene where Violet sees Xaden meeting with a large bunch of people who all have a relic tattoo, branding them as children of traitors, and that entire scene sounded so familiar. I must have a read a preview somewhere and still I didn’t put it on my list to grab a copy and it was available on Netgalley.  What is wrong with me?

Fourth Wing is now available on GraphicAudio and it was amazing!  At one point, I was sitting in the living room listening, I didn’t feel like getting up to get my headphones and my husband was asleep anyway. Then he wakes up and asks me what I am watching and I have to explain about GraphicAudio books. This presentation was spectacular. The wind while Violet crossed the parapet. The beating of the dragon wings. The battle noises. It was so good.

The downside is that if you check Audible, their audiobook runs almost 21 hours. The GraphicAudio presentation is only about 17 1/2 hours. That means it is abridged and I am missing scenes. That makes me very unhappy.

The worst part is that Book 2, Iron Flame, is out already and now decisions must to be made. I have spent the better part of my week trying to figure out do I get the book, do I switch to the audible version which is 28 hours or to I wait it out since the GraphicAudio presentation won’t be out until May for the first half and July for the second half, and it is only a total of 22 hours. More missing scenes. This is so difficult. What am I to do? And then I made the mistake of reading the first chapter preview so that ended that dilemma, I downloaded the ebook. I can re-listen come July.

Since I don’t a dragon book to offer this week, I opted for leopards instead for this week’s giveaway.

Just leave a comment to be entered.

Giveaway is for a paperback copy and is open to U.S. residents only. Giveaway ends Thursday, February 22nd.

In this pulse-pounding novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Leopard series, animal instinct unites two elite shifters whose heads are at war with their hearts.

Gorya Amurov might be known as his family’s peacekeeper, but the leopard inside him wants nothing more than to claw to the surface and unleash hell. A harsh life has shaped him into a vicious fighter with a calm exterior, but Gorya knows it’s only a matter of time until he loses all control. Deep down, he truly believes he’d be better off dead, and that no woman will ever accept him as a mate. …

Maya Averina has spent years hunting the criminals who destroyed her life, and she always takes down her prey. She keeps to herself, stays under the radar, and never loses focus. But with her body burning up and her mind distracted by her first heat, an ambush catches her by surprise. Now she’s trapped, an unmated female shifter about to be sold off to the highest bidder. Maya is ready to fight her way out—until the most dangerous, powerful man she’s ever encountered arrives to set her free. …

    I haven’t done any abridged version for many years – I always wondered what I was missing and
    would end up reading the unabridged version.

    I don’t think I’ve ever read an abridged edition of a book. I just can’t stand the idea that I might be missing out on good parts of the story. 😄 But GraphicAudio’s edition of Fourth Wing sounds like a must-read!

    Sounds like a good substitution; leopards for dragons. LOL Now, I’ll think about that when I read a book featuring leopards.

    Yay! I am so glad you love it! I’ve heard the graphic audio version is amazing! I’d love to see this on the big screen! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!
