Publisher's Summary

"You see, there is safety in simplicity...in a life of simple peace, where the electricity doesn't dance across the backs of my eyelids, and the sparks don't slither over my consciousness. Only asinine peace, where my paintings don't seem to paint themselves, leaving me with terrible feelings of premonition and a chill beneath my fingernails."

Seraph Black used to think that she was prepared for anything. She could last days without eating and she always walked away from the violent altercations with her father relatively unharmed. She survived working at the club and the drive to school every day in her mother's rust-bucket of a car...but it all changed when Noah and Cabe came bulldozing into her life, careless of the precious secrets they picked apart in their quest to take over her world. She was even less prepared for the mysterious Miro and Silas, and nothing could have prepared her for the bond. The connection. The reason for it all.

Someone wanted her to stay away from her new friends, but she wasn't willing to do that.

Everyone had secrets.

She wanted to know theirs. They wanted to own hers.

And the stalker?

He seemed to know everything already.

Odd

Beautiful artwork for book cover, good steady narration. World building and story pace was good and the characters likable. the story took an odd turn towards the end when our 19 yr old heroine (a baby in my eyes) was revealed to have have a predestined romantic relationship with four men. The focus of the novel was about the forming of the bond the heroine had with her men and finding out more about the supernatural world. there was only kissing between characters-- even liking most elements of this story I doubt I'll get the next novel in this series as I'd probably be uncomfortable with it

interesting and compelling.

My Kindle kept telling me to read/listen to this, I kept putting it off bc I thought it would be another teen angst book.
I was shockingly and happily surprised that it was a book with maturity in the characters and a wonderful, vibrant story line.
Even though there wasn't really any thing sexual in the book other than a few kisses and the mention of sex, some of the subject matters really are for older teens/adults.
I'm glad I finally listened after months of Kindle suggesting it lol.

too slow moving and confusing.

I spent most of the book confused. Also the narrator had a monotone and choppy way of reading that almost made me feel anxious. Not a terrible story, just wish it had been better executed.

need new reader

i wasn't able to get through the first chapter due to the reader. she was very halting and it made every 5 words or so seem like it was a new sentence.

Ruined it for me

I didn't have a problem with anything but the way she read. Why on earth do you have so much breath at the end of your words? Like everything is read so ridiculously dramatic that I can't even pay attention to the book! No, it's fine I'll read it on my own. I wasted money on this.

Narration is terrible

I cannot review the story itself, as I have not finished it yet. I will, however, finish it on my Kindle. The narrator's performance of this was one of the worst I've experienced. There was no inflection to her tone, her sentences ended in a breathy "whoopf" that made each sentence sound like a question. I couldn't make it past chapter 2.

Loved the story

The story was great, I really enjoyed it and I definitely got sucked in. The narrator has a weird cadence to her voice, that took me some getting used to. Not my favorite to listen to because of it. I will however continue the series even with the same narrator!

I guess it isn't awful..

Well the narrator was fantastic. I really loved how fluid her voice was. I am also a HUGE menage/ reverse harem junkie. Those kinds of books are my bread and butter.... Sadly thats where the positives end. Seraph is the most unlikeable character I have ever had the displeasure of reading about. I think because she was abused that means shes supposed to be terrified and usless but I can't get behind that when shes supposed to be super powerful. She is a wet blanket and lets these boys walk all ove her. She basically has WELCOME tattooed on her forehead. I wanted to love this book because its my favorite genre but I am having to force myself to even finish it. A couple specific examples - Who just ditches their little sibling? Nope. No way. I dont care what adolescent bull she may be going through you can't make it out that she is this devoted big sister in the beginning of the book risking her safety at a bar just to feed her baby brother and then turn around and completely change her. She just ditches him. First she bails and leaves him with his ABUSIVE father and then she just... moves away? WTF? Also I'm reading a book of constant inner monologue. Is her mouth broken? Does she have a spine? She never says anything important and just believes some rando guys are her savoirs. Its a new millennium! Girls can save themselves and not take orders from a man. I like the little S&M bit where teacher guy says he is gonna punish her but even in BDSM you're allowed to be a person. I dunno. I doubt I can force myself to finish this book. I know I wont be reading the second. I wish authors understood that you can have a submissive main character without her being a silent mouse with no personality. If you are looking for a menage romance or reverse harem just google a list and you'll find some great ones on Audible.

Interesting start to a series

I think this is an interesting start to a new series, and I’m curious to see where it goes. The author has created a mystery that is known by 4+, but is mostly kept from 1 - our main character, Seph.
This starts out YA, but I think that the direction it’s going is definitely UpperYA.
Schroeder does a decent job of narration.

Great book!

I really enjoyed this book. It is addicting. Can’t wait to start the next book.


The narrator was a bit annoying. She starts talking really fast for no reason and then slows back down again. I moved past it pretty quick because I enjoyed the plot!

ehhh nahh

This story was meant to intrigue me, but the large amount of secrets eventually just annoyed me and made the story hard to follow. The complicated love pentagon surprisingly didnt bother me, but with all the secrets involved got pretty confusing. The moment the "love at first sight"/ "soulmates" concept was introduced, I have to admit I rolled my eyes. The reader was a little quick and the tone of her voice kept rising at the end of every sentence, but once i got used to it an it was fine.
