Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, humankind ruled the world while lycans and vampires lived in secret.

This is no longer that time.

Willow

Run, run, run!

They're chasing me, even into my dreams. And when I awake, I see him. Striking blue eyes with a hint of the devil inside. He's my savior and my worst nightmare combined. Because he owns me. He found me. He saved me.

But I don't want to be owned. I want to be free. Even if it kills me.

Ryder

I needed a diversion, a plaything, something to distract me from this perpetual boredom. And she appeared as if the Almighty above had heard my prayers. Or, more accurately, the devil. Because I'm not a good man. Humanity died inside me long ago. It was what I needed to survive.

But she's such a pretty little thing. I think I'll keep her and make her mine. At least for a little while. Humans are so fragile, after all.

Welcome to Ryder Region.

It might not be mine yet, but it will be soon.

For I haven't lived this long by playing nice.

I prefer to bite.

Absolutely ❤️ this series

Ryder is said to be an antisocial type of independent thinking, rough around the edges vampire. One of the oldest. He doesn't really care for abiding by the rules of a baby vampire when it doesn't suit him. The description of him in the previous book is accurate.
Willow is stronger than most. Her will to survive is the only thing that saves her at the farm. Being able to talk to her two friends during "University" was a lifeline for her and only adds to the strength of all three characters. What she has to endure brings out the fight in her.
Loved the action in the book as well as the romance.

Action packed and scorching hot!

Rebel indeed! Ryder and Willow are a force to be reckoned with, for each other, and for those who come after them. After she escapes a brutal breeding camp barely alive, Ryder decides to help Willow when her fighting spirit intrigues him. Ryder is not your typical vampire royal. He essentially despises this new world order created by Lilith, and has spent the last century as a recluse, avoiding the outside world as much as possible. Willow, as a human, had hoped to become a vigil, but is sent instead to the breeding camps, where she fought daily for her life. The relationship between them at first is very much a master/plaything type dynamic, as they tiptoe around each other trying to figure out what’s between them. As things progress, sparks ignite, and the passion is infernal. Ryder finds himself wanting something he never thought he would and Willow finds herself wanting something she never thought she should.

The story here is full of action. Ryder has piqued the ire of Lilith by claiming territory and not bothering to follow her rules, and the other royals are out for his blood because they want the territory he claimed. Ryder is one of the oldest vampires alive, and has the battle and strategic prowess to match. His best friend, and only progeny, Damien, is his perfect compliment. Their camaraderie is fantastic, the back and forth jabs and snark, as well as the respect and consideration for each other is fantastic. As the female lead, Willow isn’t a shrinking violet. She can pack a serious punch and stands her own ground as she finds her feet in their dynamic relationship. A force to be reckoned with, especially towards the final climactic confrontation.

There are so many other aspects that make this story fantastic, and they are often the little touches. Ryder’s interactions with the AI are hysterical, and his conversations and attitude with Lilith are priceless. These little things pull the story together so much better and make it that much more fun to indulge.

And the narrators! Oh my goodness, the narrators. They are fantastic. Sarah has essentially become the brand female voice for this author, and Kale is quickly becoming my favorite male voice in her stories. They bring these stories to a whole new level with life and emotion, and make the book that much more enjoyable.

Oh well that was lovely.

If you not heard or read the previous books in this series stop and go do that. You'll need all of them to properly enjoy this.

I've read Rebel Bitten, it was phenomenal in my own head but to hear Ryder and Willow's story told by Kale and Sarah brings a new feeling to this epic journey. I've had so many audio books where the authors just picked whoever was the cheapest and you can tell because the quality of narration shows. But Kale and Sarah do justice to Ryder and Willow.

Amazing story as always with Lexi C. Foss's books!

I love Ryder *sigh*...he is one of my favorites. I love does he is the rule breaker who does not fall in line with society. Willow is an amazing character too. All her life she fought and she does not stop no matter what she goes through. I am never disappointed with Lexi's. I get suck into the book and never what to leave. The characters are always so strong and lovable. I cant say enough about Sarah and Kale. They are fabulous narrators! They bring such heart, personality, and love to the characters. I could listen to them all day!

Lovedddd It!!

Ok, Hands down this is my favorite of the series! I loved Ryder and Willow. Not only for their intense chemistry from the start, but a lot happens in this book that makes it the turning point for the series. We get to see other characters from previous books as well, which I love. Kale and Sarah do an amazing job narrating. If you haven’t started this series yet, WTF are you waiting for, do it now! Have fun!

Lexi, Kale and Sarah at their absolute best

Welcome back to the Blood Alliance where vampires are Kings, Lycans dominate, and humans are chattel and cattle. Be careful: everyone bites.

This novel has absolutely everything that I could ask for in a dark dystopian future: heartbreak, pain, bad ass alphas, with females that bite back, not to mention a real level of sensuality that makes the entire tale all the sweeter. With that said: Ryder offers warnings up front and I sincerely hope that people read those with caution. There are plenty of triggers here, but Lexi is able to weave them in in such a way that they do not detract from the story or linger in the minds of the reader.

This story truly revolves are our hero: Ryder. With a name like this, you just know he is going to be a powerful force of reckoning, and he absolutely does not disappoint. He is unapologetically ruthless, a mastermind for innovation, and a master of conscience. He is never afraid to make his positions known, and is very much an ends justify the means kind of character, which is where our Heroine, Willow, briefly mentioned in previous novels comes into play. Rather than become a weakness, he crafts Willow into being his greatest strength.

Willow is from the first scene a woman who knows she is destined for more. She would rather die in a fight than live in a world where she is less than she should be, and it truly shows. She is one of those characters that you cannot help routing for, and Ryder's perfect compliment in every single way. While she arguably goes through the biggest set of changes in the story, she is truly a supporting character to Ryder's epic undertaking, which makes this all the more amazing.

I've said this in previous reviews, but this series truly revolves around its males despite having seriously amazing females to accompany. However, Lexi is able to navigate this dynamic without making anything every feel truly patronizing and domineering (well, except the bedroom, wink wink nudge nudge). It's a tight rope to walk having the main storyline hinge predominantly on the actions of the heroes without making the heroines seem weak or somehow secondary, which is far from the case in this one. Willow is in every way Ryder's equal, and it shows, giving us some of the sensual and real moments the series has delivered to date.

Lexi also takes the time to give us a real secondary relationship that blows me out of the water. The relationship between Ryder and Damien is entirely real, bringing some of the much needed comedy to an otherwise dark tale. I think of all the scenes I highlighted on my kindle, their banter is probably the most prevalent. Like Willow, Damien is a critical counter balance to Ryder and is an absolute force that is needed throughout. Really, this relationship makes much of the book, and I cannot imagine Ryder without Damien.

Now I cannot end this review without discussing the audio book: which is one heckuva ride. Kale and Sarah absolutely do it again, and in the most dynamic way so far.

Kale Williams is an amazing addition to any story: having a wide range of vocal talents that make every single character unique and their voices believable. There are no accents that make me cringe, or charcters that sound alike. Even without the text to mention who is speaking, you can always tell who it is, and also what they're trying to express. Beyond just a vocal range there is an emotional range that is so incredibly rare in audio book narration that truly makes you feel like the character is narrating to you in real time. Without spoiling anything, there is a scene in here where Kale truly makes you feel like the character is suffering: not just through words but through their actual speech and thoughts, adding much needed pauses and breaks as if the character were actually thinking the story. With potentially the exception of Kale's performance as Issac Wakefield in Angel Bonds (another Lexi C. Foss title from the Immortal Curse series), this is truly the greatest performance I have heard from him to date, moments bringing me to actual tears.

Sarah Puckett is an absolute staple in paranormal series. I find myself missing her when I listen to a series where the heroine is in a certain age group (20s-30s) because she truly bring the characters to life with voices that just make sense. She makes every female character different, and can pull off the full gamut of emotions that come through her voice beautifully. The way she can make her voice quiver when there is suffering, and make her characters truly come alive during the uh...more sensual moments truly shows her range. There is also nothing cringeworthy about her performance during the more sensual scenes, making the emersion in the fantasy complete.

The production value on this is absolutely spot on, with no noticeable guffaws in editing or errors in reading. Lexi's team has done an amazing job at making sure that Kale and Sarah truly shine in this one, and that the characters come to life and bring the listener into the world of the Blood Alliance. Everything about this book is a 5/5.

Series just keeps getting better!!

I loved this one so much! It feels like the series just keeps on getting better with each book. If you haven’t read or listened to this series yet go get the first one and you’re in for a real treat. Enjoy the journey and getting to know these amazing characters. Willow and Ryder were so much fun to get to know more and I adored their chemistry. Also this book has a lot of really important things happening with the plot. I’m excited to see what is next for this world and these characters. And if the amazing writing isn’t enough the narrators do a fantastic job with the voices and emotions.

I did not want this to end.

I used whispersync and flicked between listening and reading.

This for me was the best in the series so far, and I absolutely loved the others. I did not want this book to end, this one held me captivated until the very end.
Lexi sure knows how to get in your head and fully absorb you into these worlds.


Ryder is brilliant with his “I don’t follow rules or give a feck” attitude! I thought Kylan was top dog for bad ass, but how wrong was I.

Poor Willow really has been through it and it’s seems this is only just the beginning. She certainly finds her inner warrior in this and boy does she make an impact.


So many YAY moments in this read. 👏🏼👏🏼

Love the overarching story, the rebel alliance is now a growing force with some key players at the helm.

Bring on King Jace.

Rebel who finds his cause. I loved this!

Not only does this book look fabulous on the outside, it is brilliant on the inside. That cover...phew!! It depicts Ryder perfectly, mysterious, deadly and sexy as hell!

I read and loved Rebel Bitten a while back, but listening to the audio version has given it extra life. Told in dual pov, both narrators were excellent, very expressive. I've heard both before in some of the authors other series, but I have to say, Kale Williams was spot on with Ryder, exactly how I imagined him.

Ryder, what can you say about him. He's a man of action and little emotion, one of the oldest vampires. Ruthless, calculating, cold, powerful, commanding, dominant - a recluse who never does what's expected. He's not been idle though whilst in his self imposed exile, he's been building a fortress and watching. Now he's out in the open, a newly appointed royal, but a rule breaker, a rebel.  He sees the huge fundamental flaws and the evil cruelty of the current system and is determined to dismantle it piece by piece. This man is seriously hot, one of my favourite male characters in Lexi C Foss's vast array of worlds.

Humans in this dark, brutal world are worthless, dispensable cattle and are classed as nothing but food and playthings. Ryder knows their importance though, afterall vampires can't survive without them. When an injured, dying, beautiful human woman stumbles onto his territory, he sees a fire in her that has all but disappeared from most humans.  He's intrigued, so he does the unexpected and saves her life with his blood.

I loved these two, Ryder refusing to toe the line in Queen Lilith's new world of the blood alliance. He had compassion beneath his hard exterior, even though took him a while to admit it, with the help of his feisty pet!  Willow was confused as to why Ryder as a royal was so complex and completely different to everything she'd been taught. She was a strong willed survivor and hadn't been broken despite the hell she'd been through and slowly their connection and super hot chemistry brought each other back to life, with a few fangtastic twists along the way.

This world is intense, harsh, savage and bloodthirsty at times but always there is that chink of light and hope that not everyone complies with the system.  It's full of darkness, suspense, intrigue, twists, turns, steamy hot passion and a compelling plot. I love this series, the rebellion has started and I can't wait for happens next.

Wonderful! great Narration

I'm still processing everything that happened, I can't believe that I finished it in one sitting, just 1 day. But it was really good, really, really good, and with a fabulous narration that makes it a thousand times better.

Ryder wasn't at all what I was expecting him to be, from what I have gathered from the past book I had created myself an idea of how he was going to be. Well, my assumptions were wrong, he's so much more than what meets the eye, and I loved him, he's just amazing.

Willow... You rock girl!!! You did the unexpected and I am so amazed by it. I cannot say more without spoiling it.

This books just keep getting better and better, and I need Kingly Bitten "pronto" now, I am going to die knowing, who, what comes next.

As for the narration, just perfection. Kale Williams was so perfect as Ryder, his voice so emotionless, "flat", bored, just so perfect for Ryder. And Sarah Puckett was just as great for Willow. Honestly these pair never disappoints.
