Publisher's Summary

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business - my realm - than what is seen above ground.   

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete. Since that day long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine. She just didn’t know. 

My father is now gone. The city and the underbelly are now mine. The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets and make her who she’s always been - mine.

Intriguing and gripping

MsRomig is amazing storyteller and this new book just confirms it. She throws us in the middle of the situation and while it unfolds the new pieces come into play. Love the love/hate feeling the Kennedy and Sterling. The cliffhanger is explosive and wait till part 2 is agonizing. Thanks for wonderful read

Excellent

I love all of Aleatha Romigs books and I have found she always has excellent narrators as well. This story starts out with a bang and draws you in! I really enjoyed getting to know the characters, they’re all likable, especially Sterling :)
Recommend for anyone who likes some mystery with their dark romance!! I can’t wait for the next book!

Dark romance ;)

Disclaimer: I don’t read dark romance and I don’t enjoy it at all, but I’d do for Aleatha because she’s a genius and everything she writes is golden… Hence, the 4 stars… Otherwise, I’d have rated it with 5 stars.
Oh. My. God. How I was so out of my comfort zone with this book, but I had the audiobook to help me continue reading despite the darkness in it! In Secrets, the first book of the Web of Sin Trilogy, Kennedy knew her real name when she was a teenager, but for years that name didn’t mean anything to her. Until one day it became everything, but it carried so many questions that only Sterling could answer, but he wouldn’t answer them all at once… He’d take his time and in the meantime, he’d claim what’s his: Araneae, AKA Kennedy.

What else can I say aside from…. *shock face*

Aleatha knows how to make me never want to stop reading—or listening to—her books with all the suspense and intrigue and mystery she adds to them… And with the addition of the erotism… WOW!!! The story, the characters, and the background were greatly built and with the revelation by the end, Aleatha made sure to have me waiting eagerly for the next book, Lies.

Savannah Peachwood & Alexander Cendese did a great job with the narration of Secrets. Both their performances matched the story and personality of Araneae/Kennedy and Sterling. The sex scenes were PERFECT!!! WOW!!! Really, really greatly read!!

And now… the wait… being…

Is it December 4th already?

The Queen is back!

Let me just start this review with the statement that I love everything Aleatha Romig writes, but her true calling is dark romance. This first book of her latest series is a beautifully clever beginning to this trilogy. Ms. Romig is a master storyteller and the mystery and intrigue build perfectly throughout the book. I cannot wait to see where she's going to take this series -- the one thing you can count on from Romig is that it won't be where you thought! If you're concerned about starting a series - no worries -- the release dates for books 2 and 3 are already in place, with only about a month between releases. Savannah and Alexander do a great job with the narration -- I hope they're on track to narrate Books 2 and 3 as well! Job well done!

great book..

I wish I didn't have to wait on the serious.... I hate eating. I wish there was a way to encourage the author to keep the books coming.

Pretty Good....

this is a pretty good book. Much better if you read the book than listen to it. The narrators are like night and day...they don't convey the characters as they are written. But if you get both the book and the Audible book you can listen while driving and pick up right where you left off when you get out the car.

I am confusion.....

I'm not really sure how I felt about this book, I don't understand why anyone would think people want to read this. At first I wanted to shut it off because who wants to read this kind of story. It was frustrating that someone who was kidnapped, and was told her friends would be killed if she didn't go, was still attracted to the abductor. The man was so back and forth on how he treated her. It was hard to get through, but it held my interest. I found myself wanting to know why everyone was after the female lead, and not so much how the "love" story played out. With that said, some parts did make me sick. Is it something I care to listen to again? Not a chance. Do I regret listening to this book? Yes, it was too much for me... And I can tolerate quite a bit. This is really only good if you have a kidnapping fantasy, otherwise steer clear of this one.

-It was well written, the detail was phenomenal. I give that 5 stars.
-the female narrator was amazing 5 stars.
-male narrator 1 star. His voice was like nails on a chalkboard, it made me uncomfortable. It sounded nothing like the book painted him to sound like. It was just off.
-story -3 stars.

The story was good...

...the narrator needed to be different. An Arden or similar would have matched the character much better. And the female was okay in some instances and so bad I almost stopped listening in others.

The story itself, great. As long as you can endure the narration, you’ll be entertained.

Cliffhanger ending if you dislike those, you’ll have a problem with this book. I didn’t mind that as I came in knowing to expect that. Additionally, the next book is part of the romance package and thus, free to romance package subscribers.

Worst male narrator ever!!! Cringed everytime he spoke; couldn't finish the book. Find another book.

A great story!

Kennedy has been living under the radar for years, hiding from a man she doesn’t even know but has feared finding her for ten years.
Sterling Sparrow is the King of Chicago’s underbelly and it’s time to bring home his Queen.
There are parts of this book when I thought Kennedy was a pushover and gave in to Sterling too easily. I did like the story, and for the most part I liked Sterling and Kennedy/Araneae and can’t wait to find out what happens next. Loved the narrators.
