Publisher's Summary

Sara Grey's world shattered 10 years ago when her father was brutally murdered. Now, at 17, she is still haunted by memories of that day and driven by the need to understand why it happened. She lives a life full of secrets, and her family and friends have no idea of the supernatural world she is immersed in or of Sara's own very powerful gift.

In her quest for answers about her father's death, Sara takes risks that expose her and her friends to danger and puts herself into the sights of a sadistic vampire. On the same fateful night she meets Nikolas, a warrior who turns Sara's world upside down and is determined to protect her even if it's the last thing she wants.

Sara's life starts to spin out of control as she is hunted by an obsessed vampire, learns that her friends have secrets of their own, and reels from the truth about her own ancestry. Sara has always been fiercely independent, but in order to survive now she must open herself to others, to reveal her deepest secrets. And she must learn to trust the one person capable of breaking down the walls around her.

Outstanding Plot & Characters

I picked this audiobook up looking for something to listen to at work. I'm so glad I found this trilogy. I now own the books and audiobooks. The characters and plot are engaging and suspenseful. This book will have you sitting on edge of your seat waiting to see what is going to happen. I could easily relate to Sara and her desire to live life on her own terms. Sara is incredibly tenacious and independent which adds a bit of humor when dealing with Nikolas. Her strength and loyalty to those she loves no matter their "differences" is very admirable and makes her that much more lovable. The different creatures in this literary world are fascinating and add so much depth to the existing story. If you haven't read/listened to this book and enjoy the paranormal I highly recommend it!

YA at its best

This is not my normal genre but I really enjoyed. Some chemistry but no steam. A great adventure for all ages. Looking for a good story that happens to be clean, this is a good choice.

Did not expect to love it.

I started this book thinking I would not like it. I loved it though. It was very good. The writer did a great job. The narrator made the book so enjoyable. I would recommend this book to anyone into the fantasy world of mythical creatures. Anyone looking for a good adventure book to read it is definitely full of them. Can't wait to start the next in the series.

If my ears could smile...they would!

Caitlin Greer brings Karen Lynch's books to life!!! I wasn't able to put the book down when I was reading it and I wasn't able to turn the audiobook off either! I listened to it in the car, while working out, while cooking dinner...it was great! I love Caitlin's voice and I feel she really brought the characters to life. This book was so easy to listen to - I really can't wait to listen to the next ones in the series.

Refreshing storyline

Loved the characters and plot, felt really drawn in and wasn't overly chatty dialogue of characters. Great balance of book plot history (bat actual history, but characters) and great use of highs/lows and shock value! Heading towards Refugee now!

Brilliant!

Saw the great reviews and settled on it. it's more than worth the credit. You have friendship, action, family, and many other elements that makes a book amazing. The characters, plot, and pace was perfect and I have no complaints. I'll be using my other credit on boo two. I cannot wait to find out what happens to our leading lady and her friends. Best book I've read in a while!

A gem of a story

This story grabbed my attention right from the start and kept it to the very last word. It was imaginative, had a slew of great characters, plenty of action and some hints of romance too. The descriptive writing, believable characters and engaging plot quickly pulls you into a world of excitement, suspense and action. Sara, the main protagonist, is a strong female character with a kind, protective nature and a determined personality and you can not help but like her. Her discovery of her power and origins, the dangers, changes and difficulties she faces endears you to her and you become invested in her life and development. Hints of future romance with the fierce warrior, Nicolas, adds interest and anticipation to the story and I will look forward to seeing how this develops in the rest of the books. The narration on the audiobook was excellent, her tone, pitch and intonation changed with each character giving then all individual voices and personalities. She did a great job of both the male and female characters and hit all the different accents well. I enjoyed this story and look forward to listening to its continuation in the next audiobook. I received the audiobook at no cost and under no obligation.

Captivating, Complex, and Well-Written

If you could sum up Relentless in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, Complex, Deep

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sara is my favorite character. She has developed a fascinating personality through the journey of her life, and she is a strong heroine with a big heart. There are so many layers to her, and she is written in a way that makes me want to spend time with her.

What does Caitlin Greer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Ms. Greer truly brings these characters to life. Her performance helps to make the scenes and action feel real. Her voice has a smooth quality to it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The loss of Remy's friendship is so sad and depressing to Sara. There was a time when Remy was one of Sara's three best friends. To have him banned from her life is so painful. Also, Remy is one of my favorite ancillary characters.

Any additional comments?

The ending is fabulous, and worthy of the caliber of this story. I highly recommend this book to readers who love paranormal, supernatural, and/or vampire hunter readers.

Brilliant book

I absolutely loved this book. The story was engaging. So much so that I listened to it in one day. It started a bit slow but quickly gained pace and had me captivated. I loved the main character, Sara, and adored Nickolas. The romance is a very slow burn but has me itching to read the next book. The only downside was the narrator. Her voice was was ok, but I found that she rushed too much for my liking. Plus, if I had a £1 for every time I heard her swallow, which is the first narrator I've heard do so, I'd be a millionaire. I'm disappointed that she narrates the entire series, which is strange for me. The fact that I'm willing to listen to the final two books with her narrating tells you just how good the story is.

Bit disappointed...

It was perfectly OK, but just so unoriginal... I'd read reviews saying it was the next Twilight, so happily dived in, but it was missing the chemistry, the intrigue and originality of Twilight.

So, fine if you're looking for your typical teenager paranormal fantasy, but if you've read a few of those already you'll be hard pressed to be excited by this one.

So disappointed

What would have made Relentless better?

I could not get into the story as I found the narrators voice so boring with same tone for every character. She also talked very fast. I can only advise everyone to listen to a sample first. I wish I had as I would never have wasted my money buying this book. Total waste of money as these audio books are not cheap.

Would you ever listen to anything by Karen Lynch again?

Possibly if they use a better narrator.

Would you be willing to try another one of Caitlin Greer’s performances?

Definitely NO

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None. Disliked the narrator so much I could not get into the story so I gave up. Would return the book if I could.

Any additional comments?

Audio books states you can return a book if not pleased. Perhaps it’s me, but I cannot find how to return it.

Demons and romances

A brilliant trilogy (this is the first book). Nice take on some of the normal fantasy fiction - I listened to all 3 books in a week. Would appeal to fans of people like PC Cast.

Riveting, addictive

Relentless it's Absolutely brilliant storyline that captures and enthrals you from beginning to end. Karen Lynch has written a story that can compare to the likes of Cassandra Clare/Richelle Mead and more.
The Narrative is excellent that conveys emotion so raw that i feel everything the characters does and leaves me begging for more. X

Another human hybrid

The imagination of writers boggels my mind. Another human with surprising parentage which makes for a complicated life. Look forward to reading the next in the series to see where this is going.

Little character development

If you don’t mind a lead character who can switch between helpless, innocent, whining maiden, unwittingly powerful supe, and someone willing to fight for some of her friends some of the time, then you might enjoy this. I liked the plot and the world of supernaturals, their lore and interactions but Sara’s continuous “why me” and feeble, terror-stricken act were a major turn off for me. I was probably 45% inclined to give the next book I this series a whirl but they gave us a taste of it and it was clear that Sara hadn’t matured any so I’m not going to waste any more time on this series and author.

Caitlyn Greer gave a good performance though she is incapable of supplying accents and in the end there were just too many characters for her to give each a distinguishing voice.

I was struggling thinking it was too teen worthy where as I'm a meghan March or kresley Cole reader...but I'm keen on book 2 with Nicholas being her mate.....don't know about 3 though.....
