MISFIT PACK


Misfit Pack by Stephanie Foxe
Book 1 of the Misfit Pack series
Narrated by Amanda Dolan
Genre: urban fantasy
Format: ebook & audiobookAudiobook


About Misfit Pack:
A redhead with a drawl, a lawyer with pink hair, and a homeless seventeen-year-old have no business forming a pack.

In a world where magic is commonplace, and your neighbor is just as likely to be an elf as a troll, three humans are unwillingly changed into werewolves.

Unprepared and unwanted.

The pack may have chosen Amber as their Alpha, but that’s not a title she is supposed to have. In order to be legally recognized as an Alpha she must pass the Trials, and it won’t be easy. If she fails, her pack will be disbanded and forced into a halfway house for bitten werewolves, aka The System.

But the pack needs a sponsor in order to even enter the Trials.

With everything to lose, the brand new pack must learn to work together before it’s too late.

My Thoughts:
I am so glad I stumbled into this book/author because this is starting to read like a wonderful series indeed! This is also my first Amanda Dolan listen and I like the way she reads. Her voice is not aggravating to the ears. And she does not have a singsong to the way she reads that a few narrators seems to have, which is a huge plus to me!! And of course, I dived into the next book right after finishing this one so the cliffhanger ending did not feel so aggravating to me. Amber, our alpha heroine, sometimes feels stupid to me but she hasn't acted all out "too stupid to live" (tstl) yet so I am keeping my fingers crossed that she doesn't in subsequent books! And I love the world building!! It's not that original, but it is beautiful!!

Meet The Author

About Stephanie Foxe:
Stephanie Foxe was born and raised near Houston, TX. She grew up playing in the pond and woods in her backyard, and devouring every book she could get her hands on.

Her teen years were spent transitioning slowly from reader, to writer. She spent most evenings on the phone with her cousin writing the first few pages to many books that would never be finished.

Her adult years were spent toiling away at a corporate job until one fateful day when she heard about a little writing project called NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). From there, the idea of writing a book went from a fanciful dream to a finished manuscript. The first book in the Witch’s Bite series was written, and Stephanie was addicted.

Now, she has plans to publish everything from paranormal fantasy to science fiction.

One book at a time.
