Publisher's Summary

Follow Noel, a captured rebel of the human Resistance, as he endures his punishment at the hands of his supernatural enemies, the vampires. See where his fate lies. Highly erotic and extremely dark and twisted. Prepare yourself.

I've been betrayed by someone I trusted. Because of him, I was captured by my loathed enemy: the vampires. Right now the sun is still high in the sky, but I know when it sets, I'm as good as dead. They can't wait to get their fangs into me.

I guess some would say I have it coming. I did raise a lot of hell with my Resistance crew, and I was planning on raising a hell of a lot more at dawn before I was sold out by Jonah. The vampires, werewolves, and dragons have been trying to track me down for months, and I'd always been two steps ahead of them.

I guess my number is up. I just hope they make it quick. You see, the vampires in my reality aren't the romantic lot you read about in books. They don't sparkle or hang out at high schools with their teenage girlfriends. Hell no. Vampires are brutal, calculating, sadistic, and bloodthirsty. As a matter of fact, all of the monsters are! That's how they were able to take over the world so easily and change an entire civilization to suit their needs. Whatever happens, I know it's not going to be pretty, so I'm preparing myself for the worst. May God help me.

Warning: This novel contains hardcore sexual situations between men, not meant for sensitive eyes. I'm talking crude, lewd, and full of attitude. This series will most likely either offend you or get ya revved up. There will be no punches being pulled whatsoever, so you've been warned. Mature adult content meant for listeners looking for something dark, taboo, sexy, and unapologetic in their paranormal erotica. This is not a romance.

    "Interesting take on the book."

    I won't deny that the audio book has its shortcomings. Sometimes it felt a little too dead pan on the narrators voice, buts its just sometimes. But he did his best and you could hear his vast improvement as you progress.

    Great character expression in voice. For just 1 guy, its impressive that he can take on so many roles. That is no small feat.

    I love the way he tried to include a little more passion in his reading. It was pretty amazing overall if you don't set your expectations too high just because you love the book so much.

    Sexy and dark. People should give it a try.

    "Dark and wild! Vampires don't glitter!"
    What did you love best about Chained in Darkness: Season One Complete?

    The one star obviously didn't read the blurb It's CLEARLY labeled all over as Man/Man and nowhere does it say it is a sweet romance. Read the blurb and the warning provided by the author! It is dark, gritty and kinky. These vampires do not glow and glitter. They drink blood, they uh... safe word here... do THINGS to each other. And Dragons... wow, I want to find a dragon like Ty.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Noel... the author worked closely with his narrator and the way it is said is correct in several parts of the country. Even though he starts as basically a slave he comes to love his vampire family and is developing very well.


    What about Arthur Byrd’s performance did you like?

    He used different voices for the characters and there are so many in this book it was a real challenge.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I'd say yet again... Dark and Gritty, wild ride, explore the dark side. Don't watch it if you are squeamish.


    Any additional comments?

    Take a chance, this book is great!

    "Dark, Dirty, Mind-blowing Sexiness!"

    Loved every freaking sexy minute of this story. I have all of the books in this series in my e-reader and hope he puts them all out in audio format.

    Nicholas Bella writes a dark, twisted story that somehow manages to also be fun. His characters are compelling and I'm fascinated by every one of them. Watching as Noel slowly evolves and comes to understand his new life has me hooked!

    To the first reviewer, there is a very visible, very evident disclaimer in the book description. Read it, believe it. There's a lot of graphic sex in this story and the characters are homosexual. This is clear in the description and it's very unfair to trash the book because you didn't read the disclaimer and this "isn't your thing".

    "Sexy and Fun"
    Where does Chained in Darkness: Season One Complete rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say that out of the 150 audiobooks I have listened to I give this a 11/10 would listen again.


    What other book might you compare Chained in Darkness: Season One Complete to and why?

    MMMMMM, That is a good question. I don't think there is anything like it.


    What about Arthur Byrd’s performance did you like?

    OMG, I wish he had more things available. I listened to the other book he narrated a couple of years ago and fell in lust.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had quite a few laugh out loud moment.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book. Not for the faint of heart that is for sure. I don't think it could have been done any better. And Jonah sounds like the whiny, cowardly, sniveling bitch that I always knew he was.

    "wow "

    I've read and loved season one but to actually hear it being read by this awesome narrator made me love it even more. the narrator did a great job portraying the story by changing his voice to suit each character. I'd definitely recommend this audio book

    "Magnificent"
    Would you listen to Chained in Darkness: Season One Complete again? Why?

    Yes again and again!! It's so dark and erotic. It's my new favorite audio book. This book is not for the weak at heart.

    READ THE WARNING IT'S HARD CORE!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Noel. He has no idea what he's in for. The things he goes through and how it changes him. It's just amazing. I couldn't have asked for more.


    What about Arthur Byrd’s performance did you like?

    He was wonderful all of those voice and the way he made everything come alive he really did the book justice. I can't believe he could handle this book, but he did. I hope that he does the rest of the to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES, YES and YES.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the books! Nicholas Bella is just amazing he brings everything to life in all of his books. I was really concerned how the audio book was going to turn out but Authur Byrd nailed it. It's like a TV show that your following only your mind is the TV. I will keep this and listen to it again and again. I can't wait for the next audio.

    "Umm........WOW"

    I would have to say that I was a little hesitant on writing this review. I have to say that in so many of the parts I was rendered speechless. I was definitely warned about the crude actions that were going to be involved. At first I was rooting for Noel but when he started slowly going to the dark side with the vampires I was very disappointed in him. Of course I quickly dashed that idea when I wanted to scream with him. I can't say that I blamed him. After all the torture that guy went through I probably would have been begging to go to the dark side too. I'm not even a man and it made my bits shrivel up. I mean come on cock ring that was like a cross. I'm still trying to picture that. I would have to say though that Nicholas Bella has a very imaginative mind if not a bit twisted. If you are of the faint of heart And you are easily grossed out And possibly a little too INNOCENT("Virgins I'm talking to you! LOL") then this is definitely not for you. But if you are not afraid to dip your foot into a little of the Darkness Pool or just dive right in then yeah you'll fit right into this book. Nicely written and very descriptive.

    Will I be reading the next one in this series? My thoughts are still pondering the idea. I think my stomach needs to settle and my ears need a break. Sorry but I just heard all this in one sitting and it was a little much.
