Summary

Before her death in July 1997, beloved lesbian feminist author Chris Anne Wolfe published two of her four classic Amazon adventure novels: Shadows of Aggar and Fires of Aggar. But these two volumes are only the first half of her Aggar cycle.

Chris Anne left her unpublished manuscript to her creative partner, Jennifer DiMarco, who continues to work transcribing and publishing these three dozen novels and collections. Find out more about the Wolfe Campaign at www.ChrisAnneWolfe.com.

Shadows of Aggar begins it all. Diana n'Athena is an Amazon working for the Terran Empire on the medieval planet of Aggar. Her mission is to rescue a downed pilot/spy from Aggar's wilds. But when the Council demands she be bonded to a Shadow in order to be allowed to make the journey, things get interesting. Shadows are exceptional guides and fighters, but Elana is something more - she has the gift of the Blue Sight. As the two women race against time to prevent an all-out intergalactic war, they become erotically entangled, complicating both their lives and putting their mission in danger.

Spectacular

An amazing tale of adventure, love and a magical mysterious world. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, the story is gripping, the characters are deep and beautifully constructed. This book definitely has a Tolkien feel but with its owns strengths and mysteries :)

Nice book .

Fantasy feel to it, it had a good balance of action and romance between Diana and Elana.
There's also the interesting underlying story between the four entities involved, You have The Amazons, who are ostensibly working for the Terran Empire, on planet Aggar and dealing with the Council of Aggar who guide the development their society, and finally theres the Ramains King who with the capture of a Terran pilot and ship intends to shift the balance of power his own way with the help of the pilot and the advanced technology from his ship.
This book it was a great listen to in total it was 20 hours long but it really seemed to go faster.
I'm looking forward to getting the second & third in the series which are also available on audible. Sweet neeetx one 😉

Cannot Believe Audible has this!

Would you consider the audio edition of Shadows of Aggar: Amazons Unite Edition to be better than the print version?

They are equal. Classic.

Any additional comments?

I have never reviewed before in my years of being a lurking customer. But to see this on Audible is incredible. The reader did a fantastic job, bringing to life characters I have loved for years. I hope that all of Chris Anne's books will make it to Audible.

Horrible

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Absolutely nothing could have made this better. The characters were cliche and underdeveloped. The plot was lacking. The story as a whole was boring, drawn out, and lacked excitement of any kind.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Anything but this.

Would you be willing to try another one of J. Evans’s performances?

J. Evans is possibly one of the worst narrators. I found myself falling asleep listening to her drone on and on. Even though the story was awful, a narrator can sometimes liven things up a bit. There was hardly any variation in character. This is the first audiobook I couldn't finish.

What character would you cut from Shadows of Aggar: Amazons Unite Edition?

All of them.

Any additional comments?

I always try to give authors a chance. I hate leaving bad reviews but I have no idea how this even got published at all. Then, add one of the worst narrators and you get the worst book I've ever encountered. I always try to finish a book, even if I don't like it but I couldn't even make it to the end of this one. Do yourself a favor and avoid this one. It is not worth the money.

Life, Lies, Loss & Lesbian Love

The story covers a little of growing up, moving out, the trials and errors of life on the road with a companion, traumatic events, the struggles of hiding your true self, and of course what good story wouldn’t have love.

Thank you for covering alternative yet natural lifestyles!

Entertainingly Sweet

Overall, I loved the story! Diana and Elana are mesmerizing. I like how neither one outshines the other in terms of how loyal they are to one another. I wished someone would make this story into a movie because visually, I'm sure I would enjoy the battle and scenes even more plus there is a life lesson to be shared with many. I'm def getting Fires of Aggar!

Shadows of Aggar

I so love this book! I have read it multiple times and this is the first time I have listened to it.
It came alive for me in a different way. The strength of the life bond and the beauty of new love.

A bit long.

Great story. Excellent narrative. Wonderful characters, but by the mother's hand it was long and a few passages, I believe, unnecessary. Still quite good and the story itself was refreshing and different.

Fantastic Story!!

I’ve been a fan of the book and author since it was first published!
I really enjoyed the reader, whose voice brought the story to life and made it even more enjoyable!!

The loss of 1 star was from a few glitches, but other than that…FANTASTIC BOOK!!
