In the second book of Iris Johansen's heart-stopping new Eve Duncan trilogy, the stakes get higher. Eve Duncan is on the run. Kidnapped by Jim Doane, a mysterious man who wants her to complete a sinister forensic sculpture, she now has no time to savor the victory of escaping from him. He's back on her trail and closing in fast. Doane desperately needs Eve's skill to reconstruct the skull of his son -- a sick and twisted killer who still holds Doane in thrall from beyond the grave. The CIA has its own reasons for tracking Eve's nemesis. And those closest to Eve -- Joe Quinn and Jane MacGuire -- are doing everything in their power to rescue her, while a hired gun named Lee Zander is on a personal mission to eliminate Doane

Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating)

First Thought when Finished: Hunting Eve gave me an ending that I never would have guessed!

Story Thoughts: One more book in the series y’all (she writes these in trilogies so even though it says this is book 17–you can start with Taking Eve Book 16 and not feel lost)! I am seriously jonesing to get my hands on it but I am going to try for a little restraint since it is on its way! If you are a fan of the series then I don’t think you will be disappointed with Hunting Eve. Everything is coming together, things are happening, and the ending will leave you with your mouth hanging open. Iris knows her characters and what they will do in extreme situations. Needless to say that Hunting Eve was one big extreme situation that had everyone (and I do mean everyone) involved! I am on edge to see how it all plays out!

Character Thoughts: I love the characters in the Eve Duncan series and I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite. Here is what I think you need to know about them (in general): The characters all have “Fringe” abilities. They are normal people with extraordinary senses, abilities, or personalities. They sometimes play well with each other, sometimes they don’t. They all came together in a very organic way and some of them are still building trust with each other. This truly is a group effort even though the series is “Eve Duncan”. I happen to like them all and love how they accept their own talents but are always weary of others.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Elisabeth Rodgers / Length: 10 hrs and 59 mins

I love Elisabeth’s narration of this series. She really does “get” each character (there are a ton of them) and makes them each unique. Her pacing is really good too. Her male voices are pretty good and have grown on me through out the series. Overall, I highly recommend this series on audio. Please try a sample before buying as everyone has different tastes in narrators.

Final Thought: My ordered copy of Silencing Eve should be on the way soon. I can’t wait to see how it all comes together!
