Publisher's Summary

No one ever expects someone like Carnal.

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Victoria Danann introduces a groundbreaking paranormal romance series about a genetically altered new species. They’re heart-stopping beautiful to look at, but also bigger, faster, stronger, and smarter. 

"I adore Carnal, a true bad boy hero if ever one was written." (The Paranormal Romantic)

The rogue angel Kellareal stopped the genocide of 143 human/animal hybrids who'd been genetically engineered as an experiment. Generations had spent their entire lives imprisoned and used as research subjects. Against orders, he spirited them away to another world. In a twist of irony, they were given the job of protecting humans from the result of their own hybrid experiment gone very, very wrong. 

When Rosie Storm asked Kellareal for a place to hide and teach her boyfriend a lesson, she thought she was getting a few weeks of tantrum-fueled asylum. The last thing she was expecting was to be the accidental architect of a war. Or to meet someone like Carnal. 

"Carnal is a force to be reckoned with." (Night Owl Reviews, Top Pick)

"Fans of Laurann Dohner and Lora Leigh love the bad, bad boys of Exiled!" (The Fanatical Paranormal Romantical)

Start listening today and find out why Carnal has been called brilliant and breathtaking, captivating and powerful.

Audio does this excellent book justice

I've read Carnal several times, and had some concerns a voice Actor would not do it Justice. Now I've listened to Carnal, and Gary Furlong definitely was the correct voice to pick for this book. He did an excellent job!
If you don't know this 3 book series that branches off of the Black Swan series, It is time you discover it. If you don't know the Black Swan world, what a treat is ahead of you!

I am having trouble reviewing this book, because it's not a typical romance, it's not a typical action story, It's not a typical coming of age story. In some ways it is all 3, in some ways it is none of these. What it is, is a beautifully written tale of people you care about in an interesting, dangerous world. To me, having previously read the ebook, this quality audio performance enhanced the experience.

I was provided a copy of the audio book for review. This did not affect my opinion or my review.

Spoiler alert - don’t care - warning others

This might ruin this book for others but I feel it is only fair. When I read a Romance - even Better a romance which storyline includes other very interesting elements…. supernaturals, sci fi, etc. - I am still reading something for romance/relaxation/ and HEA. Do NOT read this if you want the HEA. Unfortunately I have lost both my father AND my brother-in-law (both loved dearly) in the last few months and to get my mind off of grieving I have been reading a lot of different types of books but focusing mainly on those which would (hopefully) have a sweet satisfying ending. Needless to say, THIS book was heart breaking - and worse because in this genre I was not expecting it. Which is also too bad because it SEEMed as though (I was thinking) I had found a New Author! Anyone who reads voraciously knows what I’m talking about…. It is difficult finding more really good books when you have already gone through Everything by any beloved authors that you already know. So I was beginning to be impressed and hopeful with this storyline not only because it kept my interest but also because I was thinking I would be able to read All other books by this author. Now - I am very Leary of reading ANYthing else by her because I do not know if it is going to once again - break my heart and I can NOT handle any additional anguish of heart in the next six months (at least). So if anyone else out there has had tragedy in their lives recently - they might want to pass on this book, at Least until their hearts and minds are better prepared to deal with it.

Delightful tie in to the Black Swan series

Fits into the saga nicely in the author’s unique style. Narrator is excellent as well. Too bad TV or cinema hasn’t picked this story up to become a binge worthy show/movie series. I think the characters and story are on par with Vampire Diaries/Originals or Shadowhunters. Don’t miss the rest of the Knights of the Black Swan tales

An Epic Romance

Oh my goodness! This is my second time listening to this amazing story. I have also read it a couple times. Even so I still sobbed. Please give this story a chance. It is a fantastic love story. Rosie runs from what she feels is rejection. She finds a whole new world. The story that ensues is epic. From a Forever Fan... Pam James.

Get Ready for an Emotional Ride

Wow! I absolutely loved this audiobook and the narration by Gary Furlong was amazing. This is Carnal and Rosie’s story and the world building was fantastic! I was not prepared for the ending though and am going to dive straight into “Crave” to see what happens next!

An extremely well narrated version of this beautiful poignant adventure romance

This is a well narrated version of Victoria Danann’s amazing book. This story had it all. As with all her books they are so brilliantly different from most books I have read, and I love them all. This book is particularly poignant and emotional.

Good story

This story was started off with a confusing start as you didn’t know what was happening and who was who but once the real story started it was great as you could see this young woman grow every page and that was a fun adventure within it self. The romance was well written as nothing seemed rushed and in fact went at the correct pace. However I hated the ending so much so I will not be buying another book from this series as there is no HEA and the heroines story didn’t feel finished.
