Benella is concerned with two things - avoiding the two village boys who torment her and scrounging for food to help feed her family. Unfortunately the best wild fruit and vegetables are near the walls of the estate, a dark, misty place inhabited by an unforgiving beast. When her tormentors lock her behind the massive gates, Benella knows her fate is sealed. Yet the fate isn't one she expects. Her encounter with the beast starts a bizarre cycle of bargaining for her freedom, a freedom the beast seems determined to see her lose.

What made the experience of listening to Depravity the most enjoyable?

The Narrator was more fabulous than I could have ever imagined! She really brought the tale to life with her voices and narration. The story I had already read and loved and the audio made me fall in love even more!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well Benella was the main character and narrator of the story. So she definitely is my favorite!

Which character – as performed by Sierra Kline – was your favorite?

I have to say that Sierra Kline's depiction of the Beast was stellar!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The cliffhanger was hard to handle but I was very pleased to start right into book 2 without hesitation.

Any additional comments?

I cannot recommend this series more!

Safely hidden within the estate's enchanted walls, Benella no longer has time to fear her tormentors. She's too preoccupied attempting to determine what makes the beast so beastly. It might be the taxing visits from the aged enchantress who cursed him or his growing vexation at not being allowed to touch Benella.

I had already read Deceit, A Beastly Tale book 2 in ebook but the audiobook is just amazing! It really brings so much depth to this already wonderful story! I can't recommend these books & audio editions enough. Warning: This is an adult retelling of Beauty & the Beast.

The story was a fantastic continuation to the first book, which I also listened to on audible. The swoony romance, the crazy dire situations and all the action made this a perfect paranormal romance.
Clean, new adult, paranormal romance that I would recommend to everyone!!!

Amelia grew up in a world of half-truths. She knows she's an Elder, but has no idea what that means. Her father reminds her daily that she must maintain control, but he refuses to explain why. Even worse, she's betrothed to the prince of the Immortals and doesn't even know his name.

Absolutely loved Bound by Duty by Stormy Smith! It had intrigue, romance, self-discovery and lots of action! I devoured this book and my only issue is that it ended!! Thankfully I have Bound by Spells ready but I know waiting for the 3rd book is going to kill me!
