Publisher's Summary

Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Holly Black, this enemies-to-lovers adventure romance should come with a book hangover warning.

All magic has a price. 

Haven survived the Devourers, but she isn’t any closer to breaking the curse. Meanwhile, her forbidden magic rages brighter and more dangerous every day. To control her powers and stand a chance against the Shade Queen, Haven made a bargain with two enemy immortals. Now, her waking hours are spent fighting alongside the Sun Lord, but her dreams belong to the Shade Lord.

Only, the closer she ventures into the wicked Shadow Kingdom, the more her magic shows itself and the more she struggles with whom to trust. The golden but wounded Sun Lord or the darkly charismatic Shade Lord. Both are off-limits. And both have the ability to save her or destroy her.

With the Shade Queen closing in and Bell’s time nearly up, Haven will sacrifice everything to break the curse, but will it be enough to stop the mortal realm from falling into darkness forever?

Welcome to the Kingdom of Runes where immortals and humans clash, light and dark magic reign, and mythical creatures lurk in the shadows. 

If you like fierce heroines, enemies-to-lovers romance, wild plot twists, and endearing characters that stay with you long after you reach the end, you need to discover the book fans are calling dark fantasy at its best. Just make sure to clear out some space on your calendar first!

I love this serious, but the narrator SLOW DOWN!!!

The story has so much depth, so much world building, character building, entwining story lines. Brilliant. Yet how in the world can you absorb all these details when the narrator thinks its a race, a competition to see how many words she can speak in 60 seconds. She has a great voice, and is a great voice actor, believable, if she'd SLOW DOWN, breath. By talking so fast, i had to rewind over n over to grasp what was being said. Which takes so much from a great book series. It takes just on 9 hours, books of similar page length take 14 to 16 hours on audible. so disappointing

A fantastic second instalment...bring on the next

***Listened to audiobook***

This book is definitely not a filler book.

While I found the first book struggled to 'end' and resolve anything in the narrative, this book brought it all - love, death, betrayal, and a conclusion of sorts that ended one arc and began the next, ready to be answered in the next instalment. The characters deepened, questions and curiosities were answered and more were asked, relationships developed, and just...too many things happened to discuss in one review.

I don't know if it's just the brilliant narration, but this series has definitely surprised me with how much I like it. I hope the next one releases on audiobook soon!

*Audiobook review*
As mentioned above, super love the narrator of this series. She's just fantastic. Definitely engaging and fits the tone of the series well.

***Brilliant and Unforgettable***

This book ripped my heart out to pieces and I'm afraid it will never be the same again. It's a heart wrenching, beautiful story with phenomenal world and character building. It's addictive and can't get enough. Vanessa Moyen is brilliant in her narrative. She brings the story to life and gives it depths and colour.

Close but I struggle

Now that I am
Two books into this series I feel that have given it a really fair chance. I have a couple of problem I just can’t get past. No spoilers
1)I’m bored. The suspenseful moments are lack luster, the passionate moments are lukewarm. It’s missing intensity all around

2)often I had to refocus, reread or double check what I was reading bc I let thinking I had missed a chapter or even an entire book. Details that seem crucial to the story are just left for tot to infer and I just don’t understand why
3) many, many reviews compared it to
ACOTAR, that’s bc so much of the story and details are completely ripped off and not well I might add. If I had not read those books previously I may enjoy these more but it feels too much Like cheap fan fiction

So much better

If you had your doubts reading the first book, this one will change that. I liked the second book so much better than the first! The plot moved faster and the character development felt full circle. I highly recommend continuing this series if you’ve read the first.

Love this Story & Can't wait for the next one!

Continuing on with this story from the 1st book I'm hooked..Its too good to put down! All the characters have so much going on and the way it comes together makes my heart hurt and then joy bursts into the story. Im not wanting this to end! Haven can be frustrating at times with all the things she does when she shouldn't but thats what makes her so interesting.

Better than the first

I wasnt initially going to read the second book because the first was slow for me, but I was told they get better and this one was. Again though I'm not completely ensared by the story but I heard book 3 and 4 were the best so I will likely continue. All around not bad!

kinda disappointed

I loved oath taker and was anxiously awaiting this one to be available on audible. but the almost love triangle and cheesy flirt/almost sex scenes were really annoying. idk I just felt like this is an over dramatization of what it feels like to be kissed or touched on the inner thigh. I found myself rolling my eyes at last twice in the same paragraph. haven also became the most dislike character with her constant pig headedness.

I LOVE THIS AUDIOBOOK!!

This book had me on the edge of my seat- and frustrated I had to pause it off and on to “Adult”. All I wanted was time off from work and for my responsibilities to hold off for a day just to take it all in. Gotta love being an “Essential”! Even with being interrupted constantly I was easily able to follow the story line, and the narrator does such an amazing job of voicing the individual characters that I fell right back into where I left off. This series is definitely in my list of Top Favorites Ever- and I highly recommend it to anyone who who loves the genre of magic and destiny!

Death's, betrayal and a surprise in store.

Absolutely amazing, the Snarky humour in this is fantastic. I love Haven, she's sassy and a bit crass at times. But her firey determination and quirky personality is totally awesome, her companions have grown on me too. The story is so good I couldn't stop listening, the things you come to realise in this book had my jaw hit the floor. I honestly did not expect any of that, usually I hate been wrong. But part of me was relieved that I was, when you start to care for characters in a book, it can really stomp on your emotions when one or more either dies or betrays the main character. Which in this case happens, but I won't say more. This series is an extremely amazing and heartbreaking story, full of plot twists and sarcastic exchanges. The narrator does a spectacular job of capturing Haven perfectly and bringing her to life. This is a must read for anyone who loves magic, dark fantasy and delicious morally grey characters.

Can’t wait for more

Amazing and couldn’t put down! I’m utterly enthralled with this series. This is book 2 in the Kingdom of Runes series by Audrey Grey. You definitely need to read book 1 to understand and enjoy as much as I did. Again I listened to the audible version beautifully narrated by Vanessa Moyen.
This picks up right where we left off in book 2. Haven and the Sun Lords friends are on a mission to break the curse and save Havens best friend Bell. They now know the items they need in order to break it and they are not going to be easy to get. Each item takes them into more danger than the last and you will be on the edge of your seat.
Thankfully Archeron is so much kinder in this book but who doesn’t love an enemies to lovers story. In saying that, I’m still holding out hope he will be a passing fancy on Havens way to my favourite Stolas the Shade Lord.
There are lots of twists and turns and heartwarming and heartbreaking moment’s. I enjoyed Bell chapters a lot more in this book and wow what happens to him filled me with so much joy to then so much sadness within just a moment.
I love the pick mix of characters, all lovable in their own beautiful way all except one and when you read you will see why.
If you love high fantasy romance with plenty of action you can’t miss this guys.
I’ve already purchased book 3 and can’t wait to start it and see where this is going. Lots was resolved here but I can see we are in for a wild ride with a newly introduced character at the end.
Top marks 5/5

THIS BOOK IS ON FIRE!!!

This is the second book in the Kingdom of Runes series. It starts right where book one ended. Haven is still on her mission to rescue Bell. Her connection between herself, the Shade Lord and the Sun Lord are getting interesting. Vanessa Moyen did an amazing job, as always. CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!

Curse breaker is the 2nd in the series

The second book in the series and another great book. Haven continues where she left off in the quest to break the curse. Definitely read the first book first so that you get more in depth background of the characters so you appreciate what is happening and developing with the characters. Lots of twist and turns all I will say is looking forward to what happens in the next book could be very interesting and fun. The story and audio was good I didn't want to stop listening to it.
