Publisher's Summary

No one said being a princess was easy, and for Aledwen, the fae princess of spring, it's even harder. Especially with her lack of magic and the upcoming Birth of Spring. A ceremony she should be performing for the first time but can't. 

Luckily, she doesn't have to figure it out alone. Though at times, her shifter mates seem to be more of a hindrance than a help, and her elf's sense of duty may just override the bond between them. 

Can Aledwen become the queen she was always meant to be? Or will she be stuck as a magic-less princess?  

Chasing Aledwen is a reverse harem set in the Paranormal Council universe, and it is the first audiobook in the Fated Seasons: Spring series.

Need more now

I really enjoyed this story and it’s take on the fae and the paranormal world within. Loved following Dwen on her adventure of figuring out the secrets of her past and reconciling them with her future. Can’t wait to see what happens with her mating bonds and what powers ensue. The narrator did an amazing job she is now one of my favorites. Don’t miss out on this original and enthralling tale.

INTERESTING STORY, GREAT NARRATION :)

This was a little "out there" for me but I did enjoy it. Very interesting world Laura Greenwood has created, Aledwen is a very interesting character. I've never really read/listened to anything like this before. I'd never heard of a reverse harem before haha, but it really lent well to the story. I thought the story was great and the narration was AWESOME.

This audibook wasn't very long, so the world/characters weren't as developed as opposed to longer audiobooks, but I think the audiobook was very well done, and I would listen to more in the series :)

Magic Sucks but Mates make up for it

I really enjoyed listening to this story. Poor Aledwen getting the shaft in the magic department sucks, but her makes more than make up for that. I really enjoyed her finding her men and how she is just happy to have the, as they are. This is a great beginning to the series. Hollie's voice was amazing and I really love how her accent worked in this book and it just made it seem a bit more otherworldly.

A fantastic read!

Can Aledwen become the queen she was always meant to be? Or will she be stuck as a magic-less princess?

What a fantastic, amazing read it is! So enjoyable and lovable.

Brilliant writing. Wonderful characters. Hooking story.

The narrator did an absolute wonderful job of bringing this story and these characters to life.

Narration is 5 stars. Could be an interesting book

This is the first book I’ve read/listened to by this author and I am torn whether to listen to another. I had no idea what a reverse harem novel was like when I listened to this. I’m not a romance novel reader/listener. When it got to the first sex scene I’d wondered what I’d gotten myself into and was ready to fast forward. Thankfully it was not very detailed, because for me, I get bored listening and want to get onto the rest of the story.
I felt the main storyline moved too conveniently and quickly, without much depth (maybe that is a characteristic of romance novels). The details about the society, how the princess/queen roles work, etc, were all touched upon enough to be interested but not enough understand what they are let or where the story might be going with it. I think the storyline is original and it could be a great series and I’m curious how the story plays out, but I prefer more depth to stories and connection to characters.

This is the second book I’ve listened to by this narrator (Hollie Whitmore / Jodie Hollie-Anne) and I would listen to another. I really enjoyed her reading of Raven’s Sight: A Victorian Paranormal Mystery (which has some romance but no described sex), so I chose this book because i wanted to listen to something else she narrated. She voices the characters well and brings out the story in her narration.

There are no overly explicit sex scenes, however there are sex scenes. There is no excessive violence or swearing

Loved it!

Really enjoyed reading and then listening to Chasing Aledwen by Laura Greenwood! I thought Hollie was perfect as Aledwen (she wasn't my favorite for the male voices and distinguishing them, but definitely still did a good job). I thought Hollie did a great job with the inflections and inner monologue for Aledwen, really conveyed the feelings and relationships Laura masterfully created.

For the storyline, really liked the world Laura created and the way Aledwen gets her harem (individually becoming her mates). I like the mix of creatures/beings in her harem, especially if she gains any of their powers/can start to shift soon haha. I really loved the surly dragon, he is also a big softie haha. Cyrus also was adorable and the quiet ones are always the ones that surprise you the most hahaha. Can't wait for more and to see where the stories go after the big reveals in Book 1. Definitely pick this series and audiobook up 😊

Overall Good Story

This was a good story overall. The concept and world building were interesting and original. I don't know if they were lacking due to the length of the story but I would have liked to see more character development and definitely more relationship development. I am not an insta-love fan. I did like how supportive the harem was overall and how they helped Aledwen grow. The narrator did a wonderful job at bringing the characters and story to life.

excellent narration, meh story

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This book was a bit of a miss for me. I felt like the story didn't have enough depth for me. It's not that the story isn't very complex, it's that I never found any of the characters very engaging. I didn't really care about the relationships and just couldn't get into the story. The narration is really the only reason I finished the book. I could listen to Hollie Whitmore for hours.

Was a little bit on the light side

The premise of the books looks great. A magicless princess who is expected to do magic for an upcoming ceremony meets a dashing shifter who shows her the world.

I would have preferred if the story had stopped at him and maybe Cyprus. Brandon and Cyprus come out more like Cyprus and his twin accessory to double team Aledwen. Brandon has almost no personality. Ambassador Fane seems to have been an afterthought and not really planned, he barely gets any time with Aledwen.

I would have been ok with the little character development if this was merely the first book with those characters but that is not the case. I understand this is a 5h book but the plot is a lot more concerned with the sub-plot with Aledwen mother then the love story.

The narrator did a fine job.

I received this book at no charge in exchange for an honest review.

Lovely narration

I love a well narrated book. Ms. Whitmire made this book come to life. The story is not overly complicated but does have some sexual content. Aledwen, is likable. I was hoping for more on her shifter mates and really something more from her? Possibly a deeper personality then the story gave. Without giving anything away it was very anticlimactic as the royal family is kinda brushed under the table like they meant nothing? I received this book at no charge in exchange for a honest rating.

Fantasy at its best

Loved this story, presented well and enjoyable to listen to. Would like for a man to read the male parts tho as that's how I hear it when I read.
Fantastic story with twists and turns. Laugh out loud moments too.
