Review: Charming by Dannika Dark (Narration by Nicole Poole)

*I gave this audiobook an A for the narration and a B+ for the story at AudioGals*

Well, it’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the Seven series audiobooks which sport the fantastic author/narrator duo of Dannika Dark and Nicole Poole. Charming is the seventh book that I have listened to in this series although it is technically labeled as the 6.5 book in the series due to its novella length. And it is safe to say that the characters in these books – which ordinarily must be read in chronological order – have become like those of a favorite television or movie series for me. Every time a new book comes out, I can’t wait to get myself firmly entrenched in their new romantic and shifter/urban fantasy world adventures. Interestingly though, while Charming does feature the romantic journey of one of the key secondary characters from the other books, it could easily be enjoyed as a standalone as it is a spin-off story that revolves around past events and a different pack of shifters than the main characters of the other books (ie, the Weston Pack). Additionally, there is some cross-over from the Mageri series by Dannika Dark/Nicole Poole as it also features a mage as the “bad guy” in the story, and therefore could easily be enjoyed by fans of that series as well.

For those of you who have been following the Seven series, Charming‘s hero is Prince. Prince has been featured in several of the prior books as one of the most powerful packmasters in the area due primarily to the fact that he is one of the oldest wolf shifters still alive (over 700 years old) and hails from the royal blood of one of the original shifter families. Given he is a pure-blood, Prince has great power and is greatly respected, but it also means that he feels that he has his own obligations to maintain his bloodline pure which means that he has never settled down with a mate.
