Ok so I've been binge listening to this, and the previous book, for 37.. YES 37 hours - and you may ask if I'm bored yet? Well, I can honestly tell you that I'm not, no way - not even a little bit because Kristen Ashley's Fantasyland series is all kinds of right up my street. From the droolworthy Alpha Heroes, the loving kick ass Heroines, the amazingly described fantastical action-packed plots, the rollercoaster romances, the hot sex and the beautiful words said between two lovers - ALL of it ticked my boxes.
KA weaves a suspense filled colorful story and Tillie Hooper masterfully makes it all come alive with her endless ability of transforming the written word into clear and vivid mental images. Images of a damaged woman and a heartbroken Father of two who both get a second chance to reach for a HEA during a time of grief and confusion.. during a time of compassion, passion and love.. during a time of magic, witches, mayhem and war. A full cast of interesting secondary characters including the sweet, the loveable, the nasty and the downright evil characters. This story was the culmination of the previous 3 books and then it continues the thread as all couples are needed to fight the unpredictable enemy.
Worth a credit? If you want to be transported into an alternate universe where you'll find a fantasy world similar, and yet totally different from our own, hear about a touching and compelling love story and join the battle of good vs. evil - then a million YES'. I was mesmerized from the very first chapter to the last word.. and even then I didn't want to leave.

While I am enjoying most of this story line this particular book was definitely not one I loved. Apollo of both worlds were not very nice guys. First the our earth one was a sadistic and criminal ass so of course we hate him. But then the other world one basically kidnaps Maddy knowing she was abused and had been hurt a lot and then treats her horribly throughout the story. He has her doubting herself and blaming herself every time he gets mad at her. He interrupts her and tells her to be quiet all the time. She is verbally abused by him over and over.
He gets angry at her then says something hurtful and nasty then doesn't talk to her for days. It made me a little angry with Kristen Ashley that she made maddy feel responsible and guilty and not able to demand he treat her right or let her go. Even a brief attempt at that was cut off short with a "I know I was a jerk" type comment. Apollo was definitely not a hero in my book. He had some semi moments but over all fell far short for me.
The rest of the storyline was good and the conclusion satisfying but as I said it wasn't my favorite story. If you like or love the others you have to get this to find out what happens but don't expect to love apollo if you do cool but I suspect many will not

23 hour long audiobook and every word was worth listening to ... I loved all the other three previous ones n this one with them all ... great story n great concept I enjoyed those 23 hours being in that fantasy island
I've loved this series and i think this was a great book but there was way too much sex in it. At times I stopped listening to it for a period, others I skipped part of the book. It was extremely repetitive and made the book difficult to get through and enjoy.
