Publisher's Summary

Alyssum Bracken will do anything to find the Gremlin Prince...

After a longtime feud over copper between the Gremalian and the Gobel races, her people’s only hope for survival lies with Jensen Burkhardt and the hope he inherited his father’s abilities. When she tracks him down, Alyssum discovers she isn’t the first to get there. Aric, a rival goblin, is already ensconced in Jensen’s life.

Risking exile to save both races from a bloody war, the unlikely trio come together to fight for everything they love. A forbidden friendship with Aric, a first love with Jensen, while juggling the leader of her people, who’s also her father, prejudice against the Gobel - and Aric’s people trying to kill them all - could be too much for Alyssum to handle.

Jensen’s strength is the one thing keeping Alyssum grounded, but will their relationship be jeopardized by her friendship with Aric? Will any of them survive?

Alyssum isn't sure...but she’s going to fight like hell.

A great story

Alyssum's journey turned out to be more than she bargained for. A story full of magic, evil, friendship & love. Jensen stole her heart right away.l She then had to train and battle with her people. A page turner for sure & a great story. The narrator also did a great job.

An exciting start to the empowered series

I've read many of Heather Young-Nichols' books and enjoy her style of writing. In this series she ventures into the supernatural world with the Gremalians and Gobels. Alyssum is a fesity and determined heroine - determined to uncover the truth about Heath (Jensen) and in her efforts uncovers way more than she ever expected. I also enjoyed the dynamics between her, Jensen (recently discovered he's Gremalian) and Aric (Gobel). There are twists and turns, danger, heartache, betrayal, determination, regret, hope...so many emotions. The story made me laugh and cry and hopw for them to work it all out. I was fortunate enough to be gifted with advanced copies of this and the Goblin War so I was able to go right from one to the next. The Goblin War was just as engaging as the Gremlin Prince. I enjoyed listening as much as I did reading the first time. You'll want to read (or listen to) these in order. Looking forward to seeing what Heather Young-Nichols comes up with next!

The Gremlin Prince (The Empowered Series, Book 1) is YA Urban Fantasy audio with magical powers. As Alyssum Braken sets out in search of Jensen Burkhardt... Need to listen to find out. I absolutely love ya urban fantasy's & I love this one too. A highly captivating novel with a intriguing plot twists. The world building descriptions are very detailed & descriptive. With compelling & unrivaled characters that grab your attention. A distinctive writing style that offers jaw dropping moments. So excited to listen to the next audio in this series. I highly recommend listening to this audio as you will not be disappointed. Narrator Sommer Hines sensational performance was smooth and saccharine. I loved her intonation and her performance. I hope she narrates the next audio in this Duet series.

Good start.

I received this book free for an honest review. Alyssum must find the Gremlin Prince if there’s any chance of stopping the mending war between the Gremalian and Gobel races. Jensen has no idea he’s the Prince and when Alyssum finds him she realises she isn’t force as Aric has put his life at risk to try and stop the war as his people the Gobals don’t agree with what he’s doing. I enjoyed listening to this and found the characters unique and intriguing Sommer Hines was perfect at narrating.

To stop a war

I really enjoyed this book, it was a rollercoaster of emotions as a girl goes looking for a lost prince to stop a war, what she finds is first love, a new best friend and a new understanding of the enemy. Definitely worth reading, and expressive narration from Sommer Hines.

Terrific!

The premise of the series is refreshing and unique. Who would've thought Gremlins would be this impressive? Kudos to Heather Young-Nichols for developing a new concept. The Gremlin Prince is a well-composed and entertaining urban fantasy with loads of action, suspense, twists, turns, and even romance. The characters are phenomenally developed, diverse, and quite intriguing. The narration by Sommer Hines is spot-on; I thoroughly enjoyed her performance.
