From number-one best-selling and Amazon All-Star Author Kathryn Le Veque comes a dark Medieval romance of hatred, revenge, and, ultimately, redemption. Enter the Devil's Dominion....
AD 1205 - it's years after The Dark Lord Jax de Velt tore through the Welsh marches and captured several castles. Still he holds lands that do not belong to him. Out of the ashes from this dark and lawless time rises the son of one of the men Jax de Velt put to the stake. Bent on revenge against The Dark Lord, Bretton de Llion has grown up in obscurity, hidden from de Velt's rage, and has learned to hate the very world around him. His sense of vengeance against de Velt has been his guiding force for years. Gathering a powerful mercenary army, Bretton rages through Wales, emulating de Velt's reign of terror, killing and destroying, moving toward a target he has long planned for - abducting one of Jax de Velt's children in order to lure Jax into his trap. Discovering that Jax's eldest daughter is a novice nun at Alberbury Priory, he burns down the priory in his quest to abduct Lady Allaston de Velt. Successful in his endeavor, he sends word to de Velt: Come to me, or your daughter will suffer. His perfect revenge is planned.
But it is not so perfect when this warrior, who has never known love or kindness, discovers feelings for the daughter of the man he has hated his entire life. Join Bretton and Allaston in a very complex journey of terror, sadness, and the ultimate conquest - love. Old friends such as Christopher de Lohr and Keller de Poyer join Jax de Velt as integral parts of this riveting Medieval tale.
Can Allaston prevent Bretton from killing her father? Or do old hatreds burn too deep? Enter the Devil's Dominion at your own risk.

I normally love Kathryn LeVeque's stories, however, this story was a little graphic and dark for a romance. I found it to be very repetitive and slow at times. Brad Wills is wonderful as the narrator, as usual. The voices he comes up with are truly amazing. He doesn't just narrate a story...he "acts" a story...and there is a huge difference in that. I will still continue to listen to KL's stories, but, this one...I couldn't give it the five stars I usually do.
This story and the narration of Brad Wills caused me to think my heart was torn out of my chest. The love scene brought tears to my eyes. Such talent of Kathryn and Brad would make a grown man's hair stand on end with the drama and passion in this story! Bravo!!
Historical Fiction is my thing. I love a good story. The historical facts helps me to reign Queen in my family while playing Jeopardy.
I loved Everything about this book, LeVeque words is like a razor blade, you don't know your cut until the blood starts to flow, and once you look at your wound, thats when the pain hit you.
Of course The Dark Lord Bretton de Llion was my favorite character, because he took me on the emotional roller coaster ride of pain, vengeance, doubt and then redemption.
I loved Brad Wills performance of Allaston. His voice added stability and a pinch of earthiness that grounded the character and made the story believable.
No, you need some down time to absorb the impact of emotional complexities of your encounter with the Devil Dominion.
experience the world according to LeVeque, and bring your hankie.
Usually I read Kathryn Le Veque's books before getting to listen to them. This is an exception. I was not disappointed in the least. Brad Wills had me mesmerized with his different voices for all the characters. I especially liked how he played Bretton. There are some very emotional parts and he had me laughing and crying as I read along. kudos to Kathryn for another well written book and kudos to Brad for an awesome performance!
What a great story! This story is a dark story and what a great read. I loved the characters and Brad Wills made made them come alive! I would definitely recommend this book.
Terrific story, but Brad Wills made the female characters sound silly, shallow and affected. A different narrator might have helped
