Publisher's Summary

Jak awakens, cold and confused, on the shore of an unknown island at the beginning of a dangerous nightfall.

With nothing but his name and a head drained of memory, he stumbles into the nearby forest and is quickly forced to fight for his very survival.

When he meets Niri, a beautiful elf exiled from her people and left to die in the wilderness, he begins the quest to build his own tribe in a land of blood, brutality, and wild adventure.

One of my favorite fantasy adventures ever!

“Raw: A Primeval Harem” is the first audiobook available from Misty Vixen, an author who has been writing for seven - yes seven! - years. She’s been a prolific writer over the years - initially with erotica and now focused on haremlit. I've always wanted to read her work, but with so many audiobooks available I've never taken time to just sit and read. Turns out....I've really been missing out; her writing style is impressive - detailed and powerful. Clearly a talented, experienced author!

There are many Isekai books in haremlit where modern characters find themselves transported to another, often primitive, world where they must learn to survive. I can’t, though, offhand think of another audiobook where the MCs are native to the primitive world. Whenever I think of cavemen and sexy women, I always think of the 1986 movie “Clan of the Cave Bear”, with Darryl Hannah, and the 1966 film “One Million Years B.C.”, with Raquel Welch. Neither are great movies; the characters are non-verbal and brutish. Especially in “Clan of the Cave Bear”, the sex is as violent as the interaction between tribes.

My view of a “primeval harem” has been completely turned around by Misty Vixen. In “Raw”, she gives us primitive characters who are as intelligent and compassionate as they capable of using violence to protect themselves and those they love. Yes, love…these characters have complex emotions and each has their own well-developed personality.

This being a violent world, of course there are bad people (Tolvars) who want to kill them, and even giant monster spiders and wasps. The MCs and the interactions with Tolvars and the monster creatures are all interwoven very well. The author doesn’t just build a world, she invites us to live in it as we listen.

Oh…and listening to “Raw” is a joy. I’ve enjoyed the VA Katana Jones on many other audiobooks, but she gives her best performance yet with “Raw”. The publisher said she had a lot of fun narrating this book, and it come through with an A+ performance.

I would rank the audiobook “Raw” as one of my top 10 fantasy adventure audiobooks, based on enjoying the story (the characters and the writing quality), and the performance. To put this in perspective, I currently own 2,277 books on Audible, plus 102 on bookfunnel. In addition, I have access to 10 audiobooks per month via the US Public Library book lending system Hoopladigital.com, and I subscribe to Scribe.com for “unlimited audiobooks”. So, I think it’s fair to say I have listened to lots of different authors and narrators.

I truly wish I could rate “Raw” higher than 5*, but the Audible and goodreads systems only allow 5* as the highest rating. “Raw II” is currently in production, and I can’t wait to listen to it when it is published!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Receiving a review copy did not influence my rating or my review.

fantastic new author

I thought I'd listen to all of the notable authors on audible for harem and I am so effing pleased to discover this new one. after seeing this book and fighting that she has a bunch of other hair novels that haven't been translated to audiobook yet gives me a lot of hope for a really good listening experience in the future.

This book itself though was really good, I'm a big fan of survival stories and the survival plus amnesia makes the main character very compelling. The sex scenes are very well written and I'm liking the girls so far. can't wait for the next one.

Absolutely amazing.

I love this series, as well as other work by Misty Vixen. Misty has a unique writing style that just works perfect.
I’ve been super excited since I found out this book and hopefully the entire series was coming to audible. Katana is in my top 3 favorite narrators, her voice is well…pretty sexy.
Please pick this up and enjoy. You won’t be disappointed.

Misty Vixen writes an intrigueing story.

Misty Vixen writes an intriguing story. The MC is a likeable and decent person with some good skills for his new journey and is well developed by books end. His companions are diverse and interesting characters in and of themselves and not just play things. Overall, the plot moves at a good place. I look forward to the next book in the series! Audio Version: Katana Jones does a great job with the narration of this story and really builds it up!

Decent but

This wasn't to bad but it has the same problem that 90% of all the other harem stories have. The relationships completely ruin the whole story every female that the MC meets he screws. I enjoy some harem style stories but really every female? Also it is so annoying they way they constantly call sex having intimacies

A brilliantly enjoyable listen!

Misty Vixen and Katana Jones really bring the heat in this primal, slice-of-life survival harem story. So rich in detail, mystery, action and adventure I couldn't put it down. I loved the stone age survival angle, the kick-ass main character fighting alongside his lovely ladies in a savage wilderness and depth of world building that just hits you out of nowhere at times. Not to mention all the stunning action, steamy and otherwise. Congratulations on your first audiobook Misty! It's fantastic, here's hoping for more to come.
