Publisher's Summary

The kingdom isn’t supposed to fall. 

The truth screws you over before it sets you free.
Masks drop.
Secrets unravel.
Elsa’s race after the past blinds her from the present.
I’ll fight for her.
I’ll bring her back.
I’ll protect her even if it’s the last thing I do.
We made a promise.
She’s mine.
Are you ready for one final game, sweetheart?  

Twisted Kingdom is book three of Royal Elite Series and should be listened to after Deviant King and Steel Princess. This is a dark high school bully romance, mature new adult, and contains dubious situations that some listeners might find offensive. 

This book is the final part of a trilogy and is NOT stand-alone.

One wrong chapter but it’s okay

I’m confused, chapter 33 is not right in this audiobook and I hope they can fix it if possible, otherwise it’s so freaking good

Rich men and bets

The conclusion to Elsa and Aiden’s story was amazing. I loved the peak at their HEA at the end and I can’t wait to read more of this series. Keira Stevens and Shane East did an amazing job narrating this story.

Perfect!

Shane East and Keira Stevens nailed this book! Twisted Kingdom is fantastic! I turned page after page while reading, I couldn't get enough. But that on edge feeling while listening is great. I want them to read faster and slower at the same time. I lean in close like it will make it happen quicker.

This audiobook is absolutely the emotional ride it was on paper. I love Aiden and Elsa and Shane and Keira just bring them to life. Everything about this audiobook was 5 stars.

What a ride

This was such a good series!! There were some times that I wish there weren’t so much inner dialogue, but well worth the credits!

Gripping story with some whining...

So by now, we are all in love with Aiden. He's honest, direct and possessive. So what does he find in her? She's indecisive, bratty and dumb. Yes, dumb! Her POV is very frustrating to listen to. She comes to the wrong conclusions and then blows things up so big. If that's not enough, she becomes stubborn and refuses to listen to Aiden's side of the story. After all, he's only the love of her life. Yes dumb!!! The first few chapters are annoying to listen to for this reason. With ear buds on, I would visualize strangling her with my hands till she smartened up. I personally don't like books with obvious misunderstandings.

HOWEVER, after the misunderstanding clears up, the story begins and develops into something worth listening. And, it is an indeed great story.

The narration is beyond perfection. The mixed dialogs are amazing. How do they do that?? awesome job!!!!

This is part 3, and so it's worth finishing this story... for Aiden's sake. He makes this book so hot!! Loved it. ;)

Excellent Ending to a Fantastic Trilogy

The minute I finish Steel Princess I counted down the days until this audio book was out and OMG it just blew me away !! I dont think I ever will stop thinking about Aiden and Elsa , their story has literally has taken over every minute of my spare time for the last few months. Twisted Kingdom was an excellent ending, while Iam sad to see this addicting , sexy , dark , heart racing trilogy come to an end , I also felt that author left these two in the perfect place and the narrators did a fantastic job bringing these chracters to life , but at the same time gave us several hints about what is coming next .If your wondering if you need continue on with this series that anwer is YES !!! Rina Kent is officially one of my favourite author !!!

FASCINATING!!!!

“The long awaited conclusion to the Royal Elite trilogy!! Elsa and Aiden deserve way much more than just five stars. I absolutely loved their story! Once again Rina wrote an absolutely and incredible story, such a perfect ending and Shane and Kira narration was pure bliss.

The secrets left me speechless and shock. I was dying to discover all of them and the hours felt like minutes.

Twisted Kingdom was one of the most perfect enemies-to-lovers story. Elsa and Aiden were splendid characters, two broken souls that connected in such a deep beautiful way. A story about a true love that overcame a hardful and hurting past.

This is a must listen audiobook, I highly recommend it to you. And once again Shane and Kira narration was amusing!”

Angst and excellent narration

The suspense is building as the story reaches the reveals in Elsa and Aiden’s story. Lots of unanswered questions about Elsa’s past and Aiden’s role in it are getting answered as the puzzle of their lives completes a picture.

As usual these voice actors are extraordinary. Having now listened to them narrate books 1 and 2, their performances demonstrate commendable talent. Shane’s ability to switch tones and relay a diversity of male characters -- age, status, personality -- really brought the book the life, as did Keira’s narration of varying women’s roles. Shane’s voice pattern in particular is so warm, velvety, sexy even that time disappeared immersing me in the story. They were both very expressive, voice acting their parts with aplomb.

A moving story brought to life by excellent narration.

Great end to the trilogy

Ah, this series- it was a great trilogy. Well, I think it would have been better as a duet, to be honest, as there were areas that could have been cut out and a bit of repetition (I mean, how many times can the characters try to get back at each other by pretending to go out with someone else?). However, this end was fantastic- there were so many twists and interesting premises that kept me close to my earbuds so I could find out what happened next. I actually read a later book in the series before I finished this trilogy so if you haven't read in order, it's best for you to do so, in my opinion. Things that happen in this book will affect the environments of the other books.

This book follows the 4 Horsemen and their school and completes the romance of Aiden and Elsa. This is a busy book that helps to tie a lot of the loose ends together finally. I'm not going to give much more away but just know that this was an exciting and well done conclusion to the trilogy.

The audiobook was FANTASTIC. I'm pretty sure that good part of my enjoyment was listening to Shane East and Keira Stevens narrate with emotion. They are so talented at playing multiple characters and they kept me fascinated and immersed in the story. And, those accents. sigh. Anyway, listen to the audiobooks- they are amazing.

Dark Bully Romance

Twisted Kingdom by Rina Kent is a dark high school bully romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Shane East and Keira Stevens. This is the third book in the Royal Elite Series.

This book does come with a warning “This is a dark high school bully romance, mature new adult, and contains dubious situations that some listeners might find offensive. “

All I can say is WOW! Rina is an amazing writer. I am fascinated by the pull between Aiden and Elsa. You can’t help but root for them even though you know their relationship is a bit messed up. Rina did an amazing job wrapping up their story. I can’t wait to dive into the next book in the series Black Knight so I can get Kimberly and Xander’s story.

Shane and Keira did an amazing job on the narration! I absolutely love duet narration it just brings the story to life.

I would highly recommend this book if you love dark romance or bully romance.

Epic conclusion to a twisted heart and soul wrenching story.

Oh my heart has been pulled through an emotional grinder... I feared I had lost my soul to the dark magic that Rina Kent weaved- I was held spell bound until the very end... Every part of me was twisted into knots but alas, Aiden and Elsa’s beautifully cruel love story got one hell of an EPIC HEA!!

Aiden King was no hero, he was very much villain as promised— but yet still, for every cruel act a layer was peeled away- adding a new piece to the tapestry that was the bond that Aiden and Elsa shared.

And epically perfect ending to a heart and soul wrenching story. WHAT A FREAKIN TWISTED TRILOGY!!

If Dark Bully Romance is your thing then I recommend this series 1000%!!

The narrators did this story justice on a whole new level!!

** Dark themes that may trigger some readers or some readers may find disturbing.

A cracking end to the trilogy

I've read this series all out of order, but I finally finished Aiden and Elsa's tale. And I'm kinda sad to see them go. Rina Kent has raised the bar really high for me this year and she always meets or exceeds my expectations with every book of hers I get my hands on. Since this is the third book in the series and the first three books can't be read as standalones all I'll say is that I couldn't have asked for a better ending. I loved listening to these on audio and the duel narration is chef's kiss.
