In a world built on secrets, whom can you trust?‍ I have my assignment: infiltrate the Gifted government and find a way to undermine their power.‍ Should be easy, right? But my magic is going haywire again, the bond to my four is straining, and I don’t know how to play the role I’ve been given.‍ On top of that, I’m starting to realize there’s even more danger here than meets the eye. Someone in the capital isn’t playing by the rules....‍ Which leaves just one question. Whose side are they on? I can handle myself in a fight. But can I win the game of lies?

This book picks up right where book 1 left off and I was thrilled to start it. The 4 men and Lana have a plan. She is going to infiltrate the capital and give them the information needed to change everything. This story was great. There are a lot of things I loved that I cannot tell you about because it would be spoilers for book one.

The narrator did a great job with voices and feelings. I can honestly say, I've enjoyed these two audiobooks more than most because of her. I really loved the new ladies in Lana's life. There is such a difference between the classes that it is super sad. There were several twists that I didn't expect at all. Now I cannot wait to see how this all turns out, as it was left on a cliffhanger!

It was a 5/5 for me.

I was eight years old when I found out I had a father. It was the same day I held my dead mother in my arms while praying her life wasn't really over. I was dropped into the middle of a new family not long after that...From the very beginning I was ostracized because of who my mother had been. The daughters of club members were generally known as MC Princesses. My little sister was one. My title was a bit different, and proved that my mom's sins would always be held against me. I was The Other Princess.

This was a great MC story. I was heartbroken for Ever so many times through this book. The guys in the story were mostly typical MC guys but there were a few exceptions. I adored Ever's step-mother, she was a true mom. Her sister was a bit off putting but I think will grow up well. Her brother and dad....well that's a huge part of the story.

Deklan was wonderful! He stood up to his family, real and MC about what they had done to Ever and never backed down. The narrator did a great job giving all the characters a voice and I loved the back and forth between Ever and Deklan's points of view. I thought it was great that she didn't run back to the guy that broke her heart and was horrid to her. Overall, I loved it.

5/5 for me.

I pretty much loved everything about this book. There is revenge, magic, shifters, love, hot guys and more. Taya is a hothead, but she has a good heart. Her best friend Augie keeps her grounded, even when the most terrible thing happens and she loses her twin. The author kept the twists going through the book. I love Liam and his family, even if I wasn't certain I would.

The narrator did a fabulous job of giving the characters voices. You could feel what they felt through her narration. Love the pack dynamic and how much everyone truly cares. The author also left us on a cliffhanger and feeling whiplash from the last couple chapters and I'm needing to start book 2 immediately.

Absolutely a 5/5.

This series just keeps getting better and better. This story focuses on Glory. Otherwise known as the 'useless RainWing' by their protectors growing up. The kids and I couldn't listen to this story enough. Glory was a favorite from the start as the bad treatment of her and the threat to her life is what started the whole thing.

The way she had such a heart for her tribe, along with her friends, was heartwarming. She wanted what was best for her tribe and not just the blah they had gotten used to. The strange findings they discover and danger that is lurking in the beautiful rain forest will test all of the friends in ways they don't expect.

It was a 5/5 for us again.

This series is absolutely engrossing. All three of my kiddos and I are listening to it and loving it. This book focuses on Tsunami, though her friends are really involved as well. She is going to meet her family and is beyond excited. She is in fact, the lost princess of the SeaWings that she has always read about. I was hoping her mother would be absolutely amazing but with the war going on, most of her actions were understandable.

I didn't like the uncle at all. The friends, they were wonderful, as always they were there for Tsunami no matter what. That is one of the things I love about these dragonets, they are family, even if each is a different species. There is betrayal, family love, and much more in this book. We loved it and cannot wait to listen to the next one.

5/5 for all 4 of us!

Oh where to start with this book. Lana is completely awesome. She is a blighted, or so she has believed her whole life. She can take care of herself and if she takes money from a Gifted here or there doing a job, no big deal. She absolutely detests all the Gifted do and stand for. Turns out, she is a Gifted.

Not only does she have magic but it bound her to four different men. And ohhhh, the men. Each unique and the narrator does an amazing job of giving them each their own voice. The wolf shifter (so hot!), the incubus (melting here!), the mage (those eyes), and the childhood friend (melting my heart). I'm not certain which guy is my favorite, all four of them have their strengths and weaknesses. I wasn't certain about Akio (incubus) but he steadily grew on me and now may be a favorite.

It was a 5/5 for me and I absolutely cannot wait to listen to the next in the series.

I was so very excited to get this book and listen to it. It has a promising summary and is the first episode in the series, so it was a short listen. Unfortunately, I didn't connect with the characters at all. The overall story was there, and it wasn't bad, I just couldn't get into it. Lera and her four mates have a cool mated bond and I thought the extreme differences in the men was a good idea.

What I absolutely loved about the book was the narrator's voice. She did a wonderful job, especially with the growly voice from the wolf shifter. That was probably my favorite! I would listen to more of her book narrations, hands down.

I thought the book itself was a 2/5, the narrator was a 4/5 so combined, I would say a 3/5 overall.

I enjoyed this book from the start. Amelia is the younger sister so she never anticipated life changing from her. Her sister was to be queen. She was going to go forward with life and her love as it had been. Except, that isn't the plan the new queen has for her. The narrator did a great job at conveying feelings. My only issue was the pacing was a bit slow for me.

The dragon shifter aspect of it was amazing. I loved that! Amelia has such a crushing time of it at the start, I felt so terrible for her. She is strong though. I think my favorite character was the captain and the decisions he made. Overall, it was a fabulous story.


It was a 4/5 for me. I cannot wait to see where this goes next.

I think the narrator did a great job in this book. The book starts off with action and we meet Alexa, a huntress. I loved how she and her partner worked together. Then we meet some other intriguing characters that had me drooling a bit. Alexa has some hot men in her life. Including an arrogant jerk!

I loved all the supernaturals. Vamps and Weres were the main focus here and I think the author did a good job setting up this first book for future books in the series. I'm curious as to how the characters grow and change.

It was a 5/5 for me for the narrator and 3/5 for the book. I will be checking out the future books in the series just to see what happens with these characters.

This was a good book and the narrator did a good job with making you 'feel' the story. I really liked Celeste! She is a strong character but has issues controlling her magic. The author did a great job with all the characters and making them appealing. Especially the men!

The mix of paranormal characters was great. It didn't just focus on vamps, witches etc but had them all in there. I wasn't certain I would enjoy the reverse harem but it was well written and the story really pulled me in. It is a good start to a very promising series.

It was a 4/5 for me. I will absolutely listen to the next book :)
