I think I would've had a slightly different experience had I read Prince of Wolves instead of listened to the audio edition. By that I mean I don't believe I would have finished this book if I had tried reading it. The characters were annoying, and the romance was cheesy. I'm actually surprised I managed to get through the audio. But I have to say it wasn't easy to do even that. I fell asleep many times out of boredom and had to force myself to keep going. The only reason I continued to listen was because I was able to tune it out sometimes and still follow what was going on for the most part. It had a fairly predictable storyline, so that must have been why.
The narrator of the story did a pretty good job. Her narrating voice, though, was way better than the voices she used for some characters. Take Fane, for example. His accented voice combined with his cringe-worthy lines had me laughing and gave me second-hand embarrassment. He was a young wolf, but he sounded like an old, creaky Dracula. I thought I would have gotten use to it by the end or that his voice would have gotten better later on... That wasn't the case though. What this whole experience made me realize is that audiobooks just may not be for me....more

I love Thomas. Out of all the boys in Saving Francesca, it was definitely Thomas who stood out to me. Really happy to know more about him and his situation, including the rest of his family's. Melina Marchetta is always so great with family and friend relationships.
I also loved the parts with Thomas and the other characters from Saving Francesca, especially Tara, the girls, and Will Trombal. Awesome friends and hilarious moments. The new characters were great as well. Oh, and I can't forget to mention the violinist (I kept expecting Me? to come up, but I guess that isn't his standard response anymore. haha), Heckle & Jeckle, and the Asian. I was fangirling every single time they were mentioned. Could not help myself. ;P
Like every time I finish a Melina Marchetta novel, I wish it didn't have to end. But I love that there's always hope in the end and that you just know it will all eventually work out for the characters. Seriously can't wait to read Marchetta's next book. Love them all!
