Firstly, any words that I am about to use in my review, quite frankly, won't be enough to express just how brilliant, awesome and mind blowingly (ok I..Show More » know Spellcheck told me it's not a real word) fantastic book this was.
HKW's gifted mind creates for us a parallel supernatural world, fills it with interesting, amusing and some hot paranormal characters that are all brought to life by the delicious voices of AF and together the talented pair draw you into a multi layered plot that's filled with intrigue, romance, twists and turns with so many sub plots, some of which hint at an ultimate climatic battle between an evil entity and the handsome 13 Alpha Kings together with their (all hopefully found) soul mates and partners - the lucky lucky Queens (could be funny but no, they are all, presumably, of the female variety).
This book was an action packed, thrilling listen that was riveting and pulled you right in to the fast paced love story as Thane finds his Queen (Siobhan) but fate denies him the time to properly woo her and explain his paranormal life as she's thrown straight into his magical world containing Demons, Witches, Warlocks, Vampires, Phantoms and all sorts of supernaturals which leaves her confused, breathless, dumbstruck but...... ultimately happy with Thane (sensible girl). There is a lot of mutual 'tingling' attraction going on but the sex scene wasn't very graphic and it didn't need to be as it was emotionally intense.
Worth a credit? Well it's left me bereft - putting the feeling into words - it's like you're starving, so you order your favorite pizza, it's delivered, you open the box mmmmm delicious..... but you're only given ONE more slice - yes, it was a mind-blowing, mouthwateringly, delicious taste but you needed MORE and NOW!!! Luckily I don't have to wait long .... just 9 days (and counting) until the next King audiobook is released and I get to taste my next slice of Heaven which I've already pre-ordered. So, back to 'worth the credit?' well do you really think I'm going to say no after this review and I'm anticipating spending many many more until I reach the ultimate WOW factor and get the WHOLE pizza!!
I keep thinking this series is going to get better, but it isn't. The author spends very little time on the main characters and the majority of the bo..Show More »ok on supporting characters and other pointless story lines. I thought the first book did it to establish the setting and characters, but the second book did it too and this book was the absolute worst!!! There was very little interaction between the two main characters at all and absolutely no character development. There isn't even a good plot to make up for it. It was basically a book of all filler and no real content. I kept zoning out because what was going on had little to do with story. I had to force myself to finish the book over and over again. I have never wanted a book to end so badly.
