Publisher's Summary

A great fantasy debut with elements of Chinese Taoist philosophy and martial arts. This is storytelling at its best...adventurous, exciting and with a touch of the gods.

Action, intrigue, demons and dragons

Kylie Chan creates a fast and furious story balanced between the celestial and the mortal, the powerful and the innocent...

Emma Donahue has just started her new job as nanny to Simone, the daughter of John Chen, a very rich Hong Kong businessman. She understands that Simone may be a target for kidnappers but she does not expect to be drawn into a world of martial arts, magic and extreme danger, where both gods and demons can exist in the mortal domain.

When John and his American bodyguard, Leo, teach Emma their particular style of martial arts, they begin to realise that Emma herself is more than she seems....

Finally it is here

I have been eagerly awaiting for this title to be released on Audible. Kylie Chan weaves a deep story about an Australian nanny who becomes involved in the world of Chinese Gods and Demons. The Dark Heavens series is a big favourite of mine and am glad that I get to listen to this wonderful story. The narrater does a wonderful job at retelling the story.

Amazing Book, long awaited Audiobook!!

This series was one of my first sci-fi/ fantasy/ female protagonist that I read and fell in love, gobbling up each book as they were published... So to say that I was excited by this being released onto Audible would be an understatement.
Fantastic story, Very descriptive and well thought out, with lots of room for the progression of the next three books. Very well read by an Aussie Narrator (so it’s more authentic 😀) who slipped easily into the International Accents and, in my mind, did them justice.

Audible, please make sure the release the next book soon, and were all waiting for the next one 😀.

Brilliant story

Kylie Chan is an amazing author I've read all of her books and this audio book was great.
My only issue with this audio book is it started skipping halfway through like the file is damaged.
Other than that it was well worth listening to.

Get a new narrator.

I love love love this series. I’ve read them many times and was so excited when they came out on audible and then utterly disappointed with the narration. I’ve persisted because I love the story so much but Emma’s voice is the only passable attempt. The narrators attempt at all the other characters voices and accents is atrocious and needs to be stopped. Please get a new narrator and/or have multiple for the different characters and nationalities.

Great Story

Was awesome to see that this series had become an audio story as I had first read it over 10 years ago and loved it.

The only disappointment for me was that around chapter 20 the audio started skipping for a number of chapters.

The narrator did an excellent job.
