Elias, who was voted “Wolf Most Likely to be Sexed-up by Readers,” is the novella’s hero, X-Clan: The Experiment. He gets Daciana, an Ash Wolf omega from the Shadowlands. I’m so very excited because Kale Willams and Sarah Puckett get to read these parts, and the two are so damn good at it that there were times I fell into the story.
The Andorra Sector hasn’t been able to produce its omegas for decades, and because of this, their entire society is endangered. But there is hope for the future if the Ash Wolves are compatible. So the Alpha of the X-Clan and Elias’ best friend Ander Cain have arranged a trade, the experiment. Elias gets Daciana, and if she proves to be compatible, then they will mate.
Kale Williams sounds filthy reading Elias’s parts. It’s compelling, and even though his reading voice is sometimes delivered without a ton of inflection, it sounds even dirtier for it. Sarah Puckett is an excellent counter in Daciana’s voice.
It’s strange because I didn’t really like Kale for the same reason when he read Ander Cain in Andorra Sector, but I think it’s because of who Ander Cain is and who Elias is. Kale Williams is a fantastic Elias.
And as far as The Experiment goes, I adore this story, but I have one issue with it, which I feel like it attempts to re-write Ander Cain to make him more likable. I understand that he might behave very differently with his friends, but I can’t reach so far as this book asks me to believe his characterization.
