Publisher's Summary

The first prophecy:

Seed of death and dragon's womb, suffering her fated tomb.

She, our savior, the fallen's soul, shall shed her blood to make us whole.

A vengeful darkness she will arise, her love calls forth the darkest tide.

Yet, if her heart has ceased to beat, the world shall eclipse in dark complete.

Pretend Ma told me the terrible things done to me were for the greater good. That I would be a hero and fight for those who can't fight for themselves.

I'm not so sure about that.

I am sure that my time in this world is drawing to a close. I'm okay with that. I even wish for it some days. Then, I meet him. Mr. Glowy Eyes.

I'm also sure I'm a monster, and I'm certain that he's so much worse than that. But he also shows me something important. Very important. Do you want to know what it is?

Are you still waiting? I can't tell you, silly rabbit. Who gives something like that away?

Mr. Glowy Eyes is waiting, too. In the dark....

Under the bed....

I can't promise he won't eat you...but I can promise you won't mind when he does.

Contains mature themes.

Awesome novel. Lousy male narration

Ok, let’s start with that I love, love, love this story. It is a tale about monsters, with romance and humour, extreme violence and possible triggers. And it is so sweet, (if you overlook the dismembered bodies). It embraces that a persons’ beauty come from their soul, and is reflected by one’s actions and capacity to love. Strength is determined by a willingness to back up one’s beliefs, despite the costs (especially if it happens to squish a few of the ‘pretty’ folk along the way. Eh...Collateral damage or kharma?)

Sadly, the narration lets it down. The female narrator does a fairly good job, of both Iza and Phobe’s roles, although she sounds more like she is a staid 30’s or 40’s years old, rather than the somewhat more youthful and amusing 20’something I imagine Iza to be. Don’t get me wrong, Iza has been through some bad experiences which left her with a jaded/violent edge, yet, my view of her is that she still has an ultimately optimistic and enthusiastic nature, which is why Phobe falls in love with her. Justine O’Keefe sounds mainly jaded and wounded. I would like to hear more of the playful side of her.

However... (dirge music here)... the male narrator is awful. He sounds like a freaking robot. Ok, Phobe (our male lead and hotty) is definitely emotionally stunted to begin with, but, jeez, start to lighten up by the end! I really hated Aiden Snow’s rendition. Great velvety voice that he puts zero emotion into, and he seems to put a full stop at. The. End. Of. Every. Word. Annoying. Right? What a waste. He really needs to look up ‘enunciation’ in the dictionary (hint: it doesn’t mention robots or a criminal abuse of punctuation).
Zoe Parker, please tell him to lighten up in the sequels!

Otherwise, I thoroughly recommend the WRITTEN version of this novel.

***Brilliantly Dark***

I'm not sadistic just because I enjoyed this book of so much horror and suffering, I loved it because it's brilliantly written. It embodies true evil and also innocence in its purest form. It's truly an amazing book. The narrative is excellent on both narrator's, Aiden Snow' s voice gives me goosebumps.

Didn’t know what to expect...

OK, so I didn’t know what to expect when I started this book, but I am thoroughly surprised by how much I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone not faint of heart. There are some graphic details of abuse and imprisonment but no explicit rape scenes happen. This is more of a love story than a sexually explicit story. The story begins with your main character in prisoned and her story of a for told destiny that awaits her. She also has a love interest that is also imprisoned with her and also has a destiny of his own. Both main characters are strong and willing to fight for what they believe in. This story contains modern times, different dimensions, magic, as well as, magical beings. It does leave on a cliffhanger but the next book is out already so I’ll be moving on to it.

Not What I Expected

The beginning of the story was dragging on quite a bit but afterwards the story picked up and pulled me along. I found myself not caring much for the male lead. The female lead was interesting, strong, bad ass, and funny on her journey saving kids, setting microwaves on fire, and exacting rightful justice.

Storyline and Characters you fall in love with!!

This is one of my absolute FAVORITE books to listen to!! The storyline is easy to follow, the characters personality progression is clear to see and the narrators definitely gave life to their assigned persons and supporting characters!!

Holy crap, Aiden Snow's voice is insane!

So I don't know why it took me so long to pick up this book, I guess I have been on such a RH kick that I hadn't given this one a chance. I am so glad I did. The way Justine and Aiden brought these characters to live was amazing and insane at the same time! I loved how Aiden's voice allowed me to imagine Phobe perfectly in my head, and he made sure his inflections were 100% honest with the character (starts off as more of a robot but with more time with Isa, he starts to feel different emotions and Aiden reflects this change/growth). Justine does a great job with Isa and the other side characters (especially the kids she brings along). I sometimes hope for either a female or male chapter depending on how much I love the voices, but this is one audiobook I loved them both equally (I will say I did shiver everytime there was a Phobe chapter haha).

I loved this story and am dying to get back to Isa and Phobe (have some other audiobooks I need to listen to so I am ready for upcoming releases). I felt for them both in prison and how they slowly let their walls down with each other. I loved how gruesome Zoe gets in this story and how I fall for monsters and am rooting for them haha. I loved Isa's Dad and getting to see her learn her powers. I especially loved the scenes at her family's hotel. Buuuuut I need to see them reunite, its killing me now going right to Book 2. I want them to get together so bad and I know the next book won't disappoint ❤️ Fantastic job Zoe, Justine, and Aiden!!!
