Publisher's Summary

A dark romance unlike anything you've heard before.

I joined the cloister to find the truth. But I've discovered so much more, and the darkness here is seducing me, pulling me down until all I can think of is him. Adam Monroe, the prophet's son, a dark prince to an empire that grows by the day. He is tasked with keeping me safe from the wolves of the outside world. But the longer I stay at the cloister, the more I realize the wolves are already inside and under the prophet's control. 

If Adam discovers the real reason I'm here, he'll bay for my blood with the rest of them. Until then, I will be Delilah, an obedient servant of the prophet during the day and Adam's maiden at night.

FIFTY SHADES OF INTENSLY DARK & DELICIOUS

Firstly, if you don’t feel the lure and pull of a dark romance then stop right now because this book DEFINITELY won’t be for you.. as this listen is all kinds of twisted.. all kinds of dark.. all kinds of depraved.. and, all kinds of f’d up. But, if you too seek the heart-beating rush, the pulse-pounding tension and the emotional thrill-ride of not knowing what harrowing scenes will be next to shock and shake you.. then my fellow listeners read on. Because this has ALL those feels and so so much more as Delilah witnesses firsthand, along with the other naive virgins in her group, exactly what being a Maiden in the Cloisters cult is all about. At its head is a wickedly sinful Prophet with richeous self-serving false preachings along with the many levels of his mean and varied band of disciples. It’s Hell, it’s torture, it’s brainwashing, it’s a violent reprogramming, it’s a stripping of dignity and it’s mental and physical abuse at the highest level as their ‘Protectors’ listen and obey the word of the psychotic and very dangerous Prophet.

There’s abuse, starvation, brainwashing, sexual training, bdsm and sub-Dom attitudes, cruelty, rules and absolutely no remorse as these once innocent women are slowly being bent and broken into submission. However, in Delilah’s case, her dark Protector is Adam the Prophet’s handsome son who has already suffered and been damaged.. yet he won’t take what’s not offered.. instead he teases.. and tempts.. and dirty talks.. and alpha’s his possessive ways into Delilah’s psyche. The chemistry and pull is there.. but so are the cameras, guards, rules, expectations and enemies round every corner.

Worth a credit? This dual POV complex, harrowing and gripping story is brilliantly written as the heroine, who’s been renamed Delilah, starts her quest to seek the truth as to what led to her beloved sister’s death.. but she could never have imagined what horrors would follow.. or the heartbreaking story awaiting her discovery. And, I think far worse will be in her future.. dark days lie ahead for Delilah.. and more unholy acts will be demanded and performed in the name of a false religion. Thankfully, all three suspenseful and thrilling parts to this twisted dark trilogy are available now.. so try stopping me from purchasing the next slice of this brilliantly narrated rollercoaster ride into the world of a sick cult, it’s sick practices, its sick leaders and its sick followers.. bring it on I can’t wait.

A lot of violence toward the women but otherwise good read. Narrators are great but the book is drawn out

Great series start

Couldn't stop listening, good thing Celia has those pesky cliffhangers. I can't help but recommend this dark cult series especially if you have the Amazon Kindle Unlimited. you can just add the audiobook for $1.99. I would have to rate this book lower if I had to use a credit. This book stops abruptly and just when it starts getting somewhere.

Maiden Delilah will stop at nothing to get answers. Protector Adam is tired and numb to living the life as the son of the "prophet". They come together both holding their sercets and not knowing if they can trust their feelings. The book is very suspenseful and keeps you listening but once I started the writing the review I realized that I still know nothing. This book is basically the introduction to life at the compound. So with that said I'm off to the next one.

Also the writer has this disclaimer on the Kindle book page:
Author's Note: If you have a trigger, this book will pull it. The Maiden is the first book of The Cloister Series, which is now complete with The Prophet and The Church.

A thrilling and amazing audiobook, extremely dark with a suspense twist.

Wow! What an amazing and thrilling listen.... Darkness with a suspense element will keep you hooked from page one until the end. You’ll race to get book two because that ending will leave you hanging, begging for more. Definitely will push you outside your comfort zone. I highly recommend this read if you enjoy dark and twisted. Amazing narration by Muffy Newtown and Teddy Hamilton, they bring this story/characters to life...
