Publisher's Summary

This box set includes all five books in the Sever the Crown series from USA Today best-selling author Lindsey R. Loucks and award-winning author Mysti Parker. Prepare to get lost in a paranormal romance series that will leave you breathless and begging for more!

Start with Book One: Emergence

Together, they'll sever the crown - or maybe the head that wears it.

Wren has a dark obsession - to find her mother's murderers before they find her. Every new singing gig brings her closer to crossing their names from her list.

When a detective shows up with a new lead, she jumps at the chance with fangs bared. But to get the information they need, they’ll have to bust someone out of jail.

Sure. No problem. 

Ashe has just been framed for high crimes against the Southern Vampire Clan - but he’s not exactly innocent either.

While waiting for his fate, a five-pointed star tattoo appears on his wrist, similar to the tattoo of a stunning platinum-haired vampire. The sudden attraction between them is undeniable. Better yet, she's just offered to free him. 

Sounds like a great deal. So what's the catch?

Turns out, as their enemies close in, the catch could very well be their lives.

Book Two: Defiance - Everyone knows it's not a true vampire cult party until someone gets staked.

Book Three: Obsession - Wren’s world has caught fire. But she’ll be damned if she lets it burn.

Book Four: Relentless - Wren's fourth mate just might be the death of her...that is if the world doesn't end first.

Book Five: Ascension - 3...2...1.... It’s a race against time in an epic war for the throne. Queen versus queen.

For fans of the True Blood novels, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Dark Hunter, A Shade of Vampire, Power of Five, and All the Pretty Monsters. A vampire romance with nonstop action, plenty of spice, and a few laughs! Perfect for fans of Charlaine Harris, J.R. Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Meg Xuemei X, Eva Chase, Alex Lidell, Joely Sue Burkhart, and Bella Forrest!

Wonderful

This book has everything you want and wish for in a RH Paranormal romance.
- An epic action packed storyline ✔

- One Tough kick ass female main character ✔

- Mates who would kill for their love ✔ Super interesting that she picks a new one with every book.

- Two perspectives told per book. ✔ Ren and whichever mate she just met. I did wish a few times to get more perspectives but still not mad at it.

- Sexy moments ✔ Honestly theh were all around a 6 or 7 out of 10 on the steamy erotica scale for me. The sex scenes were good to listen to but rushed through a lot of the time. No group play (minus one quick shower moment) No MM moments. Strictly one on one MF sexy times in this one. I still enjoyed them immensely!!!! I've just distended to way dirtier RH previously lol

- Witches, Celestials and Demons ✔

- The classic long list vampire royal trope ✔

- A boxed set so you get all 4 books with one credit!!! Yes Please!! I love boxed series ✔

The narrator did change in the middle it was honestly not even noticeable after one chapter in with the new one. I wish a male narrator was involved for her men but still worth it. Do it. You won't regret it.

Wren's Journey

This is my first time reading/listening to any books by these two authors working together, I am familiar with Mysti's work but Lindsey R. Loucks is a new author for me. That said they have produced a series in which I became fully engrossed.

The world-building was well done, and the descriptions of the characters were good, I liked the premise of the story, a young girl, Wren, orphaned aged eight who had no idea she was fated to be Queen of the Southern Vampire Clan, she didn't know that her mother had been Queen or that Vampire Clans existed.

Wren's mother was murdered when she was eight years old and since then she's become somewhat obsessed with finding and killing the men responsible. The story really starts when she meets a human Detective from the FBI, Zac Palmer who tells her that she's not alone, that there are other vampires in the world.

Zac tells her that there is someone who could help her in her quest and together they went to visit him in a supernatural prison. But his price for helping her is she will need to break him out. She then learns that the crown is rightfully hers and that he's the first of her destined mates!

From then on she's not only interested in finding her mother's murders but in recovering her Crown in order to do this she will need to meet and mate with her five predestined royal mates in order to defeat Ravana her evil aunt.

Each book introduces a new mate, so the rivalry/camaraderie between the mates isn't a big thing, and I must admit that that has always been something I've enjoyed. In the first two books, the characters were either humans or vampires but once you get to the third book then the character pool widens considerably as there are vampires, angels, demons, witches, lion, wolf and boar shifters and banshees as well as the introduction of portals through time. Something of a departure from the previous books, suddenly there are no limits to their world.

The story as a whole had many aspects revenge, fated mates, magic, and a journey of salvation as well as a reverse harem. There's romance and steam too. I'm not going to give any more away as that would spoil any listener's enjoyment of this tale, what I will say is I enjoyed it.

Unusually the narrator changed mid-series but thankfully it didn't negatively affect my enjoyment of these books. The original narrator Melissa Schwairy and then Sage Gaten both did good jobs with this series.

Southern Fried Vampires

Vampires with deep Southern accents! Oh, and witches, celestials and all matter of supernatural creatures abound. This is a pretty fresh take on vampire romance/reverse harem, told over 5 books. The world-building is good and the characters are eclectic and well-developed. LOTS of sex scenes as you would expect, and some unrealistic relationships, also to be expected. The evil antagonist is Wren's mom's sister, and current queen of the vampires (after killing "Mom" and usurping the crown). Hence, Wren and Mates must amass enough power and friends to Sever the Crown.

Meh

It's so much MC worship man. I guess the plots a fun idea, I'm always down for a road trip. But the characters are kind of frustrating and the sex scenes aren't really my thing. I kind of gave up around book 3, they started being mean to some drag queen characters and that was the straw that broke the camel's back for me.

NEEDS TO BE MULTI-NARRORATED

One narrator doesn't cut it. It's yoo difficult to keep the characters separated, especially when the story changes point of view randomly.

Passed the time

I liked the story, I just wish it had more than one narrator. It would have made it a bit more enjoyable. This one took me longer to get through. I would listen here and there.

Couldn’t do it

I’m not sure why this failed to grab my attention. I love paranormal reverse harem books but I literally could not make myself listen to this story. The accent and voice of the MC was grating on my nerves. Had to stop after the first hour.

problematic

1st: Advertised as being similar to true blood. It has vampires and takes place in the South, but that's where the similarities end.

2nd: Ill concept of relationship boundaries.
Not about the poly loving, but the violence and sexual coercion between the parties, so easily brushed aside by "lust" or being emotional.
Not wanting sex = No.
Being mad, sad, frustrated =/= violent physical outburst directed at partner.

3rd: Ill to no understanding of mental illness.
Excusing bloody murder, saying someone tortures animals and that's just their dark madness, not mental illness - that's just plain leading readers astray from facts to allow fictional grace to the killing, so readers will still like the character. Doubling down with "magical insight" is just lazy.
~ Animal abuse and mistreatment of those weaker than oneself is literally a symptom of various mental illnesses and no sane, healthy, person indulges in such.

I'd rather feel ambivalent towards a character than be gaslighted about what's going on by the writers - it makes for a more interesting story with less problematic and misplaced worship.

Haven't finished yet - almost there - and so far the story is entertaining. A little too convenient some places (like introducing a character whose only function is to tug at the reader's heart when they obviously come to pass), but otherwise better than expected from reverse harem stories with fewer eye-rolling moments than the norm, in my experience.

P.S. A fedora? Really? He's the fictional embodiment about über IQ incel lords "smartest in the room" (from their POV), except here he gets laid on wednesdays. His first chapter felt like a meme - was this on purpose?

Wren and her men

This was a great PNR series. I am still a newbie PNRer, but I really enjoyed the entire series.

There were so many aspects to this series, fated mates, sort of reluctant Queen, some magic, a journey to salvation, take no crap FMC, a harem that was easily identifiable and they mingled with humans. There's romance and oh steam, the steam is so good.

The world building was nice. Each book a new mate was introduced which allowed us time to get to know each one. I think I like this way of introducing an harem, instead of just piling them all on at the same time. But hey that will probably change with the right book.

Mysti and Lindsey surely knew how to pull it all together with this series. Definitely worth a try.

Although the narrator changed mid-series, it didn't negatively effect the book. Thankfully, it wasn't mid-book. I initially requested the ARC due to the original narrator's accent, Melissa Schwairy, but once Sage Gaten, began to series, I was able to picture Wren again with no issues.

Audio ARC provided and I decided to leave an honest review.

Couldn't put it down!

I loved this book and was totally hooked from the start, and on the edge of my seat for this emotional rollercoaster, it was fast paced, action packed with some fantastic plot twists. Wren's an ass-kicking FMC, who rolls with the punches and unapolagetically lands a few of her own, when she meets Detective Zack Palmer, her life changes in an instant, and everything she thought she knew is now changed. Wren's journey and discoveries were spellbinding and enchanting and I loved every moment, and am sad to have finished the series, Melissa's narration was fantastic, but the change was distracting. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
