Publisher's Summary

They say I am a queen. They say I married a monster. That I did so willingly. They say he cannot die, that he does not age. That, together, we rule a ravaged world. They say I used to be one of them, but now I am a traitor. They say many things, all which I cannot remember, but....

I fear what they say is true.

Then there is what they don't say, what I see in their eyes - the king terrifies them. He cannot be stopped. And, most worrisome of all....

He is coming for me.

Great story

Any additional comments?

While I like continuity of narrators in series, I really wish they had switched for this one. It's hard to explain, but it's like the end of all of her sentences sound unfinished or that she's trailing off on all of them. Sometimes they even sound like a question to me. I powered through it because I love this series so much, but that really really bothered me.

Bah

I’m so disappointed in this book series and it pains me because I was SO into the bargainer series. I invested in buying both books before I even started listening- so followed through with it despite the frustration of a narrator whose speech is almost devoid of emotion and a story that was strangely lackluster despite such a dramatic background. I was incredibly disturbed by the main focus being on a weird Stockholm syndrome type love affair where the main character loses her virginity in a nonconsensual way. She literally told him no and he went ahead with it anyway because he had the power. And then to have his relationship romanticized? There was no redeeming aspect to this story. Bummed I used two credits for these books.

OMG! This book! The king, he . . . Oh. My. Gawd!!!

Ok so first: definitely 5 stars. Book 1 was Great. This book was Excellent!

Second: as twisted as Serenity's situation is, I love the dynamic between her and the king (Montez).

Third: How you know you're a bad ass . . . A plot to kill you and your spouse has been constructed by someone in your inner circle. They know your contingency plans and take out all your guards . . . And not only do you survive, you get revenge in the process = #AbsoluteBadAss

Fourth: The epilogue . . . Sooooooooooooo many years! The king, he . . . Ugh! Oh. My. Gawd!!!!!

Fifth: 1 week. 5 days to get through the next couple of books in my rotation, and 2 days to finish book 3. Give me 1 week.

Unique new Series

This is worth the time to listen. It’s not the best I have read but it is a unique story that involves a love hate romance . The plot is based around a fictional WWIII and the main character continues in her quest to negotiate and maintain peace for the western world. All while wrestling with her feelings towards the Eastern king. Personally, I think the series would have been better served by including more detail. Some aspects of the War are hard to believe. Despite the drawbacks there is still a great story of personal scarify and unexpected love.
