The year is 1180 A.D. and times are very dark. England is lawless for the most part and the people live in fear. Rising to power during this time is the vicious and brutal knight Ajax de Velt. His mission is to conquer a large stretch of the Scots and Welsh border, commandeering wealth and property along the way. He wants to be the most feared and powerful warlord in all of England, Wales, and Scotland, and he is well on his way. The last in a long line of dark and brutal warriors, Ajax is the most ruthless and ambitious knight in the Isles; even the heartiest warriors fear the man for his cold-blooded tactics.
More than that, his bloodlust, as well as his sheer skill with a blade, is legendary. But as Ajax and his army conquer the latest castle in his plans to secure the borders, he unexpectedly meets his match in a spitfire of a woman named Kellington Coleby. Beautiful, intelligent and feisty, Lady Kellington refuses to surrender to the man as handsome as he is brutal. The warlord and the maiden go head to head in this unforgettable story of love, battle, devotion, fear, and adventure.

Great Author & Great Narrator!
The Audio Book is definitely better than the book, I was able to listen to it at work and while I was driving.
There is no book to compare to The Dark Lord, it is in a category all itself!
The part that most moved me was when Jax finally realized that there are consequences for his actions. Not everything is as he was taught. Having mercy is not a weakness, but a strength. People will show respect to you, not fear.
I enjoyed this book because it kept my interest throughout the whole story. I felt their emotions swirling around me as the narrator (Kiff) worked His way through chapter after chapter of this fantastic story. Worth a credit? Absolutely the best Medieval Romance book so far that had me questioning "who needs sleep anyway?" as dawn broke. So that folks is a YES.

Yes. Because the Author is one of my top favorite 3 in the world right now. Can we get the rest of this series?
The dark lord was definitely my favorite. I loved reading about him changing. This story is kind of an adult version of beauty and the beast.
Again the dark lord. Kiff VandenHeuvel did the dark lord's deep voice so well.
Entertainingly heart wrenching.
Can we please get the rest of this series on audible?
