Publisher's Summary

Once Upon a Time,
There was a king who passed.
He left behind two sons,
one beloved and one outcast.
The older of the two was set to take the throne,
but before he could, he had to find a queen to call his own.
The younger one was known to be unruly and unhinged.
The chosen queen was warned to keep far away from him.
Beautiful and cunning, in the light is where she stayed.
But late at night, it was the shadowed lands in which she played.
Mistakes were made and secrets forged;
forgetting duty and her sense.
And while the new king had her hand,
her heart belonged to the scarred prince.

Scarred is a dark royal romance. It is not a retelling, and it is not fantasy. It has mature situations and themes which may be considered triggers for some. Listener discretion is advised.

Really enjoyed this!

I really enjoyed this book! One of the darker stories I've read with the villan being the leading man and you kinda love him even though he does terrible things.
Thought the way she brought the lion king aspects in was clever without it being a retelling, even down to the names. The narrator for Tristan sounded just like the Disney Scar but I thought sounded a bit old for a supposedly 26 year old.
Overall was a good listen, would recommend :)

Dark undertones of the lion king

This book is dark and spicy. Everyone is evil and trying to out do the next person, all shaped around fated love. Lion king vibes with spice and vengeance.

Effortless Listen

This book had me in a chokehold the entire time. The pacing of the story kept me entertained and the characters were complex. The spice? I have no words just listen. Booktok girlies u need this RIGHT NOW. The voice acting was so animated too it honestly played like a movie in my head. Too good. Emily Mcintire the woman that you are.

Loved this!

Loved everything about this story! This is the second story by Emily McIntire that I have listened to and definitely won’t be the last. I loved the characters and found the story so easy to lose myself in. I was totally engrossed! The performances were top notch by both Paul Woodson and Ella Lynch. I could listen to them all day .. and did!!

Good book. It took a while to get into this book, but I finished it in honour of the first one. The book was captivating.

The Scarred Prince

Loved this retelling of the lion king. Tristan was the boy in the shadow who wanted respect and his brothers thrown. Sara B was a girl who need revenge. Enemy of your enemy is your Enemy of your enemy is your Ally. Or lover.
Who will come out on top, the Royals or the Rebels?

such a brilliant steamy retelling

I started this audio book series as it's free on audible, and I have loved each one, but Scarred has been my favourite. the story is engrossing and it is super fun and raunchy, and the voice actors did an incrediblejob bringingthe characters to life, definitely NSFW. I can't wait to listen to the rest!

5 star narration!

The narrator for Tristan actually sounds like Scar! It was the best thing about the audio!

Way better than expected

This was surprisingly good. I read Hooked and enjoyed it but it was pretty c grade grade writing (but I still liked it). But this one was just stronger. Sarah isn’t just a placeholder and actually has a personality and Tristan is a pretty compelling sadist, I definitely found myself rooting for him and being comfortable about it. The plot is pretty predictable but it’s based on the lion king/Hamlet so if you’re familiar with those, you’ll see a lot of it coming. The end has a sweet twist to it. Bonus - the lead guy sounds kind of like Jeremy Irons, which I suspect is not an accident.

The writer has also improved. It’s smoother writing than the first in the series. I guess people improve their craft as they go on, and she definitely has.

It’s pretty smutty (not necessarily a criticism) but the story outside of that is actually worth sticking around for. If you liked the first one I really think you might like this one more.
