Publisher's Summary

Douglas Kirk is having a bad week.

Not only are groups of human hunters after him, whole werewolf packs have orders to kill him on sight, forcing him to flee Halifax without identification, money, weapons, or even his phone.

If he wants to survive, he'll have to evade the killers on his trail, travel across the country to confront the elusive elders, and learn the truth behind the order that made him what he is.

All he has to do is control his insatiable hunger for wereflesh just a little longer.

Breeds 3 is the final book in the trilogy. Contains violence and coarse language.

please let there be more

Ok I have to confess… I have a man crush on Keith C Blackmore and Sean Runnette. Keith C Blackmore is the man responsible for my addiction to audible. His free audio book ‘The Hospital’ is the story which first got me hooked on zombie audio books. Since then I have spent all of my spare cash on audible while my TV has stood neglected and covered in dust. I found myself going for long car rides just so I have an excuse to get away and listen to another book. So of course when I discovered that Mr Blackmore had another title which was not in the zombie genre I was became a little concerned. Perhaps, it wouldn’t be as good? Perhaps I wouldn’t like it? The stakes were high. But I needed have worried myself, because I ended up concluding my review of the first in the ‘Breed’ series with the following:

"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!"

The series continued to deliver with book 2.

However, with all of those nice things being said about books 1 and 2. Book 3 took me by surprise. I won’t give any spoilers away, but just like in the ‘Mountain Man’ series this story did away with some of the previous characters… It is probably my only criticism of Mr Blackmore’s books. He gets me addicted to the characters, then takes them away from me. I went through withdrawal pain when Gus was not in one of the Mountain Man series. Book 2 had no Borland. This one has no Borland and a couple of others. Worse of all is I am not sure there is going to be a Book 4. This has a conclusion but could easily be extended. I hope it is. I would like to hear some more character development from one guy in the story (the lonely guy in the old cabin – you will know who I mean when you get to him).

While over the years other zombie books have arrived on the scene and have equalled or even bettered Mr Blackmore’s zombie books (I can’t believed I just said that). His mountain man series has stood the test of time. I suspect this one will do the same. It is by far the best werewolf type story I have heard so far. But I have only just started to scratch the surface on this genre.

As per normal with Sean Runnette’s narration the quality is brilliant but the delivery I find is on the slow side. I sped this one up to 1.5x speed and had no problem listening to it.

So, in summary what does this poor fatman think of this one? I love it! Worth every cent!

Never disappoints

I've enjoyed everything I have read/listened to by Blackmore and this is yet another one to add to that list. Well written with the just the right amount of horror and humor. Sean Runnette is the cherry on top.

Not as strong as Book 1 but still entertaining

I felt empathy for the wolves lost and cheered for the ending. There were slow spots inbetween but Blackmore made up for it in the areas it needed it. Wildly entertaining and a heck of a ending!

A Shame...

Books one and two are pretty great! A few plot holes here and there, but good!

Book three is sadly underwhelming. The first twenty something chapters are complete filler. Awful.

The remaining 20 something chapters were hit and miss. Mostly miss.

Sadly some really cool ideas and characters were wasted so our protagonist could roam through the wild and fall victim to black market merchants while trying to understand his true self. SMH.

If you enjoyed the first two, savor the flavor and pretend this one doesn't exist.

Well.........

Loved the first book. Thought the second was pretty good, though sort of cruising that down hill slope. This one, not so much. Lots of filler, way too much filler that could have been left out as it does nothing for the story.

Romantic Sellout

Geez, where do I start. How does a super enhanced, paranoid Morris get the "Banana in the Tailpipe" treatment? A rookie okay. A vet, makes no sense. Other than that the story is filled with Rambo bullet avoidance lotion and thousand round guns wielded by the hero an heroine that take paragraphs to empty. A sorry 3rd followup to what could have been a great series.

Imaginative, fun, and DARK

Characters are vivid and real, and the storyline is exciting as it moves toward an impending, explosive climax. The plot zips along, the writing is just excellent, and the characters are fun and compelling. Especially the two cray-crays”, husband & wife team who ran a business of selling body organs…….they were just hilarious and most creepy all at once. Keith C. Blackmore has a writing style that I just love.

Sean Runnette is superb as always and does an excellent job with the narration. His narration is perfect for this book. I highly recommend this for my paranormal folks out there especially if you are looking for something without a bunch of sappy romance. I found myself constantly yelling to no one in particular (“don’t do it”…don’t go in there…..its a trap”)…….LOL.

Very engaging story. Simply put all of the books in the series are fresh, imaginative, fun, and DARK!

A little drawn out at points but still great

Overall I really loved this series. The werewolf mythos was done beautifully and spared no expense on the graphic and brutal nature of their beasts. The amount of blood, gore, and violence was great and so vividly visualized that it felt like watching horror movies instead of listening to books. The originality Blackmore brings to werewolves is definitely a breath of fresh air to the rather stale genre which has mostly gotten relegated to YA urban fantasy. I sincerely hope Blackmore writes more werewolf stories because Breeds has been the best I've read in years
Not too much in terms of criticism, mostly it's just personal opinions. Compared to the first two books which were very succinct and well contained stories, this felt a little long and drawn out at times. While most of it is integral to the story, I think there's quite a bit that could have been edited out without affecting the overall plot. My only other criticism is Kirk's whole 'reluctant werewolf' mentality got a little old and tiresome in book 2 and made him a boring protagonist at times. That reluctance is still evident in book 3 but thankfully gets shed later on in the book and Kirk becomes much more interesting

The best of the series!, a howling great time!

Rarely do I power through a book like I did this one. I could not put it down. Kirk, Karma, Ezekiel, Morris, Ross Kelly are my favorite characters. Never has the world of werewolves been told in such a unique fashion. There's plenty of gore and action but the best part of Breeds 3 is how much I cared about the "Weres". I truly hope there will be a Breeds 4. I don't want the journey to end! And thank you Sean Runnette for the excellent narration, you 'really made the story come to life!

Great story to end a fantastic trilogy

I have just finished the breeds 3 audiobook and i was not disappointed, often when on sequels or a book series there is often a week book or a naff ending . Not the case here , 3 books all spot on ! Keith has tied up loose ends , explained a lot of background history and generally tidied up the story's well here . Sean's narration is brilliant as always . My only criticism is that it has ended and I want more . I will no doubt be starting the 1st book again in a month or so as I haven't had my fill yet . I look forward to seeing(hearing) more from Keith c Blackmore in the future and I hope he revisits some of the characters at some point .
A book just about Moses Morris being a bad ass would do me just fine .

Riveting and Entertaining from Start to Finish

Brilliant twist on the Werewolf Lore. I’m writing this after listening to all three Breeds books in succession. Great characters to get invested in and some class side stories to keep you entertained. Really well performed and Keith C Blackmore is fast becoming a favorite author. The Epilogue is such a fitting end to the series.

Great listen

Loved the Mountain Man series so when I found Breeds I had to give it a go and was not disappointed. Not the biggest fan of Vampires and werewolves in the new form of books ie Twilight etc. these are gritty and dare I say realistic. Loved the MC’s, sort of lovable unless they are hungry of course.

Great 3rd and final book, the best book in thia se

Great 3rd and final book, the best book in this series. The story throughout was suspenceful and it answered all my questions and had a very satisfying ending. I give it 5 stars. I hope Kieth continues to deliver more great books in the near future. Thanks mate for another great book I very much enjoyed it.
