Publisher's Summary

I would not say things are going well, exactly. I live in a burnt-out car under a bridge, surrounded by rubbish. When Ruadan shows up to bring me back to the Institute, I leap at the chance. 

That is, until he throws me into the dungeons. I’m on the naughty list, and the mentor who once trained me is cold as ice. Now, I must pass every single trial or the Institute’s executioners will rip me to pieces. Good thing I can handle it. I was the queen of the gladiator ring, and I do not go down easily. 

This will be part of a four-audiobook series to be continued.

So good!

Aaaaggghhhh!! This book was just as fantastic as the first. BUT…it also takes slow burn to a whole new level. I am about to bust wanting something to happen between Ariana and Ruadan. The story is so well written. Lots of action and adventure. I already bought the rest of the series. I have to know what happens.

Becoming one of my favorites

I just couldn't put it down. I really wish C.N Crawford would put ALL of their books/series on audible, because they are amazing authors! I have eye trouble and audible is my savior. Their characters have so much personality and you keep reading because , you want good things for them and want to know what happens. A lot of authors don't have that talent. I highly recommend this series

Excellent story telling!

What a compelling story! I still wonder about all the twists coming yet and the burgeoning love story of the "gutter fae & the prince." Definitely a must read and I can't get enough.

Wow

Great storyline! The author doesn’t disappoint. You are sucked in from the beginning to the end. A lot of action and adventure. A lot of twists and turns. The plot thickens and leaves you at what will happen next. I recommend and can’t wait for the next audiobook to ravage through.

Intense and exciting.

The narration is really good, the storyline in this series is amazing. I really love the main characters they both are very unique and interesting, the bad guys in this make you want to punch them. As always, C.N Crawford wrote something perfect that pulled me in from the very beginning and kept me awake til all hours. This is definitely a series worth getting, I would say it's one of those that will be re-read many times. It's that good.

4.5 stars enjoyable listen

I enjoyed listening to this, more than the first book in the series, and look forward to the next book. I like the main characters, there’s a good balance of plot, action and chemistry between the two main characters. Parts of the series story were revealed which has hooked me in and I want to know more. There were some niggles, like monologuing villains, but not enough for me to take a star off. If you like this, try the Dark Fae FBI series by the same author (but I’m not a big fan of the author’s other series).

The narrator was a bit distracting because she said some things in such a strange way - I’m guessing British isn’t her natural accent. I’m British myself so it’s probably far more obvious to me. Most of her accent was spot on though.

***Action Packed***

Another action packed story with lots of sass, heat and edged of your seat suspensed. Amanda Dolan is brilliant in her narrative she brings each character to life and makes them all uniqued in theur own way. What a surprised about Ciara wow i didnt expect that.

Loved it!

CN Crawford novels are perfect so adult fantasy readers. it's a tough genre and alot of books end up being too immature my age but Crawford has it down Pat!
narrator was amazing. There was good amount of satire, mystery, fights and characters were well developed.
