Publisher's Summary

Centuries ago the gods demanded Ashayna Stonemantle sacrifice her demon-tainted lover. She did, and then ended her own life, but it didn't fulfill her obligations to the gods.

Reborn into a new body, Ashayna has no awareness of her former life until her sentient magic manipulates her into seeking out Sorntar, Crown Prince of the Phoenix. The majestic and charismatic Sorntar reveals that she is host to a Larnkin - a spirit creature of vast power. If she can trust the word of a man who is part avian, he is host to her Larnkin's other half. When their Larnkins awaken early and force them into an unbreakable bond, Ashayna and Sorntar are accused of being corrupted by an ancient evil. To prove their innocence, they must discover what happened in the past to pit bondmate against bondmate. As the search for the truth draws them closer together, Ashayna realizes she's falling in love with Sorntar. But before she can tell him, his tainted Larnkin enslaves him. The gods demand she kill her beloved, as she did once before, but she will not do it, even if it's the only thing that will keep her soul safe from his darkness.

    Avid reader time permitting. Love audio books as I can multitask, love being inserted into the time & place of story thru narrators accents.

    "Betrayal's Price"

    When I first got this audio book, I was not so sure I'd enjoy it! I was wrong, I loved it, so much in fact that I went back to buy the others. The cover is actually what initially drew me to the book, but the fast moving and unexpected twists and turns kept me totally engrossed and guessing, until the very end. Shiromi Arserio did an excellent job in narrating this paranormal, adventurous love story. I love listening to the audio books as well as reading the ebook since it helps me know the proper enunciation of the places and characters names. Lisa Blackwood is a master at weaving an exciting, intriguing, story with well developed and personable characters. I'd have no qualms what so ever in recommending this book to others. I was quite pleasantly surprised and did not want to put it down until the end.

    Story
    "Amazing story set in an awesome new world!!!"
    If you could sum up Betrayal's Price in three words, what would they be?

    Awesome new world.
    But that doesn't really cover it because its just an amazing story and wonderful all around.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved all of them and the details Lisa gives and just how she made such a wonderful book.


    Which character – as performed by Shiromi Arserio – was your favorite?

    It it too hard to choose who I liked best from her performance because she did such an amazing job and conveyed everyone's emotions perfectly


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Get lost in the world of Phoenix's and humans with magic just to spice it all together.


    Any additional comments?

    Such an amazing read. Lisa and Shiromi really brought this story to life. The last 4 or 5 hours of the story I couldn't stop listening. This story is so amazing and unique I can't believe how great of a job Lisa did. With all the new races and the wonderfully built world this is definitely a series I am hooked on.
