Audiobook Review: Carnage Island (Reject Island). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Carnage Island by Lexi C. Foss

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Welcome to Carnage Island. 
Home of brutal chaos. 
Blood and tears. 
And nefarious schemes. 

A half-breed. 
A reject. 
A wolf without a mate. 

My family doesn’t want me. 
My alpha disowned me. 
And my mate rejected me. 

So I’ve just been given a new pack assignment. 
Carnage Island. 
Home to the worst of wolf kind. 
Vicious. Cruel beasts. Wicked deeds. 

I’m not one of them. 
But I’m not a Nantahala wolf either. 
I’m something distinctly other; an Omega trapped in an Alpha’s skin. 

One step toward my fate, and all the males turn their heads.
I’m fresh meat.
Property to be claimed.

Hide and seek is now a game of life and death.
With claws and teeth.
And malice and pain.

Only the strongest will survive.
Enter at your own peril.

The heroine: Clove – She is the daughter of the beta in her wolf pack. She is set to mate with the Alpha’s son. Their pack has a tradition that the females don’t shift until their mating ceremony, when their mate forces them to shift. During the ceremony when Clove shifts for the first time, everyone in attendance is surprised by her wolf. They frame her for the murder of her mother, put her on trial and send her to Carnage Island.

The Heroes: Tieran, Caius, Volt – all three are alpha’s. Tieran is the strategist, Caius is the brains and Volt is the brawn. Caius and Volt defer to Tieran as the alpha of the Carnage Island pack. They are the Black Mountain pack, they are the white wolves of Carnage Island, the most dangerous island on earth. Carnage wolves are known for their savagery. Of the reject islands, Carnage Island is the one were the worst rejects go, and the one island that has no authority except those that live there.

The Story: Clove’s former alpha assumed that she wouldn’t survive long enough to talk about what happened to her and her mother. However, she is stronger than they think and she finds that at first meeting, the three alpha’s she meets seem kind and caring not brutal and savage. Clove is unable to shift back into her human form since her mate never relinquished her from his hold and they take care of her.

The story was good and was original. I liked the idea of Carnage Island, though it is hard to say how they got the terrible reputation, since most of the people there were pretty nice and much better people than the pack that clove originally came from. I did like the characters and the world building was good. Though I thought they explained how the Black Mountain pack treats an Omega a few too many times.

There are some good action sequences, some mystery and betrayal by some of the pack members. The book was super steamy and quite smutty, but there was also a good storyline about the rivalry between the packs and how the black mountain pack wanted to get back at the other pack.

This book is told in dual points of view via full cast (duet) narration. It was narrated by Sarah Puckett, Kale Williams, Jack Calihan, and Jeffrey Holz. They all do a great job. I didn’t know who did what voice, but Tieran had a british accent which I liked quite a bit and the other two men have deep voices which matched their characters well. Sarah Puckett has a pleasing voice as well.
