Publisher's Summary

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business - my realm - than what is seen above ground.   

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete. Since that day long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine. She just didn’t know. 

My father is now gone. The city and the underbelly are now mine. The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets and make her who she’s always been - mine.

Intriguing and gripping

MsRomig is amazing storyteller and this new book just confirms it. She throws us in the middle of the situation and while it unfolds the new pieces come into play. Love the love/hate feeling the Kennedy and Sterling. The cliffhanger is explosive and wait till part 2 is agonizing. Thanks for wonderful read

Excellent

I love all of Aleatha Romigs books and I have found she always has excellent narrators as well. This story starts out with a bang and draws you in! I really enjoyed getting to know the characters, they’re all likable, especially Sterling :)
Recommend for anyone who likes some mystery with their dark romance!! I can’t wait for the next book!

The Queen is back!

Let me just start this review with the statement that I love everything Aleatha Romig writes, but her true calling is dark romance. This first book of her latest series is a beautifully clever beginning to this trilogy. Ms. Romig is a master storyteller and the mystery and intrigue build perfectly throughout the book. I cannot wait to see where she's going to take this series -- the one thing you can count on from Romig is that it won't be where you thought! If you're concerned about starting a series - no worries -- the release dates for books 2 and 3 are already in place, with only about a month between releases. Savannah and Alexander do a great job with the narration -- I hope they're on track to narrate Books 2 and 3 as well! Job well done!

Dark romance ;)

Disclaimer: I don’t read dark romance and I don’t enjoy it at all, but I’d do for Aleatha because she’s a genius and everything she writes is golden… Hence, the 4 stars… Otherwise, I’d have rated it with 5 stars.
Oh. My. God. How I was so out of my comfort zone with this book, but I had the audiobook to help me continue reading despite the darkness in it! In Secrets, the first book of the Web of Sin Trilogy, Kennedy knew her real name when she was a teenager, but for years that name didn’t mean anything to her. Until one day it became everything, but it carried so many questions that only Sterling could answer, but he wouldn’t answer them all at once… He’d take his time and in the meantime, he’d claim what’s his: Araneae, AKA Kennedy.

What else can I say aside from…. *shock face*

Aleatha knows how to make me never want to stop reading—or listening to—her books with all the suspense and intrigue and mystery she adds to them… And with the addition of the erotism… WOW!!! The story, the characters, and the background were greatly built and with the revelation by the end, Aleatha made sure to have me waiting eagerly for the next book, Lies.

Savannah Peachwood & Alexander Cendese did a great job with the narration of Secrets. Both their performances matched the story and personality of Araneae/Kennedy and Sterling. The sex scenes were PERFECT!!! WOW!!! Really, really greatly read!!

And now… the wait… being…

Is it December 4th already?

Great storyline, but narrators failed to deliver

Aleatha Romig is one of my favorite authors, but the two narrators did not do her latest audio book justice. I enjoy female and male voices with alternating POVs. However, Samantha Prescott and Brian Pallins readings did not compliment each other, and failed to give Sterling Sparrow a proper voice.

Although she deepened her tone, but Samantha's depiction of Sterling Sparrow's arrogant and domineering personality was flat and toneless.

While Brian rushed through his reading for Sterling Sparrow. He used the appropriate midwestern accent, but he made Sterling sound like a Chicagoan street thug.
