Publisher's Summary

Schemes, double-crosses, and evil incarnate.

Ema Marx is in a race against time. Or rather, a race against Apollyon. A powerful weapon - the legendary philosopher's stone - could tip the scales in favor of whoever gets their fangs on it first. For Ema, obtaining the stone is an uphill battle through love, alliance, heartbreak, and loyalty.

Winning should mean the beginning of beautiful things, but the closer Ema gets to her destiny, the more uncertain her future becomes. Is it possible the prophecy was never meant for her? And why the heck doesn't morning sickness adhere to the rules of its own name?

Butt-kicking heroines, epic heartache, and pause-resisting moments abound in Dark Becoming, the third installment of the five-times award-winning Ema Marx series by J.D. Brown.

Great Listen!

Great continuation for the series and the author really sets up for the next book in the series. The storyline, plot, and character arcs progressed beautifully throughout the book and I didn’t find myself being bored. The narrator is my all time favorite. Her voice seamlessly shifts between characters. The quality of the audio is crystal clear. Great improve from the first book in the series. All in all, a wonderful story filled with action, suspense, romance, and keeps you guessing as to what happens next in a good way. Wonderful performance by the narrator. I cannot wait for the next book in the series!

Ema lost me a bit

I am a huge fan of Kick ass female hero stories. Ema kicked ASS in the last book. But this one lost me a bit. I am going to assume that her condition in this book is has a lot to do with it. But dang, I just wanted to yell at her to be be grateful! Now Jesu has my heart. He doesn’t let himself get walked all over. I think that’s one of my favorite things about him. It’s not all about making her happy. His happiness is important too. I listened to this on audible. Once again, the narrator, MJ Webb really makes the book. Her accents are killer and the difference in each character... dang it’s hard to believe that it is just one person reading.

Loved this audiobook!

This has been my FAV book of the series so far. The characters, including supporting characters, have continued to grow. Nothing tired here! Learning their motivations has been enlightening, and there are still a few whose true motivations have not been revealed. (I seriously can't wait to find out what is in store next!) The jungle scene/battle was fun and I loved the twist at the end of that chapter! Although Ema is new to the life, she is holding her own and I love that about her. The narrator is phenomenal. She really brings all the characters to life. You can hear their feelings, their personalities through her voice. This was such an enjoyable listen. I can't wait for the next!

Cliffhangers!

I love how every book ends on a cliffhanger. I'm so pumped for book 4! The narrator really makes this book. She is so incredibly talented!! Every character has their own voice and I absolutely love it! Can't wait for the next book in this series!

And it just gets better and better

From book one to book two and now book three and I'm still questioning how JD Brown put this book together; and how MJ Webb is able to remember all the individual voices in her head, although I'm sure she doesn't and it's all there on some kind of recording desk in a very professional manner! But I digress ... I can't remember a series of books, based on a 'family' of characters that has kept me this enthralled, EVER! It is literally putting me off my work whilst I listen to the audiobook! The evocative writings of JD Brown read by the liquid tones of MJ Webb just drags me into the secretive world where no one sleeps. I became so invested in the story that I was writing in my head before MJ Webb told me what was happening; I could see the action happening and knew who to trust and who should be cut loose! As with the previous two books this one moves with great pace the characters are amazing and varied and we have our main female in Ema Marx and she is taking this fight to it's maker, she has a supporting cast of characters who have been brought forth from I know not where in JD Brown's brain! I've called them amazing and varied but that doesn't even nearly cover it. Characters of epic proportions; an extravaganza of eccentrics; oddities beyond that which even PT Barnham could envisage!! But it is not just the characters, JD Brown has created a whole world for them to live in. From palaces, to night clubs, to the circus, to hotels, private jets, alliances with humans; it's all be thought out and planned so diligently I couldn't find a chink in the armour. But book 3 came to a surprising end and I need book 4 like a fix so MJ Webb needs to start recording soon, if she hasn't already. If you haven't listened to these books read by MJ Webb you need to get yourself an audio version right now and sit back and relax. xx I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author and provide my honest review voluntarily
