Publisher's Summary

Siobhan Ashdown was born of magic; it rides her blood like a phantom, tainted and dark and unpredictable. She is a warlock, and the power within her is unlike any before known to her kind. So it's no surprise that the most powerful of the demons who feed off of this warlock magic not only recognizes the enormous potential she represents but determines that he will possess her at any cost.
Even if it means war with the entire supernatural world.
Thanatos has ruled Purgatory as the Phantom King since time immemorial. King of a vast plane of solitude, he is a free spirit, a lone rider, a tattooed man of wind and dust and nonexistent boundaries. Then he turns around one morning to find himself face-to-face with Siobhan Ashdown, a woman with hair as red and wild as his soul, eyes like melted gold, and a spirit as elusive as his own. Time stops, the world tilts, and the fact that she attacks him right off the bat does little to deter his romantic convictions - or his desire to sink his fangs into her neck.
Thirteen Kings are severed by lust and greed, an ancient vampire and his rogue creation lay claim to what is not theirs, the whisperings of war begin to shake the foundation of the supernatural world, and primordial evil awakens from its slumber to slither across the land in this second installment in Heather Killough-Walden's Kings series.

A WELL DESERVED 5 STAR RATING FOR A WORTHY LISTEN

Firstly, any words that I am about to use in my review, quite frankly, won't be enough to express just how brilliant, awesome and mind blowingly (ok I know Spellcheck told me it's not a real word) fantastic book this was.

HKW's gifted mind creates for us a parallel supernatural world, fills it with interesting, amusing and some hot paranormal characters that are all brought to life by the delicious voices of AF and together the talented pair draw you into a multi layered plot that's filled with intrigue, romance, twists and turns with so many sub plots, some of which hint at an ultimate climatic battle between an evil entity and the handsome 13 Alpha Kings together with their (all hopefully found) soul mates and partners - the lucky lucky Queens (could be funny but no, they are all, presumably, of the female variety).

This book was an action packed, thrilling listen that was riveting and pulled you right in to the fast paced love story as Thane finds his Queen (Siobhan) but fate denies him the time to properly woo her and explain his paranormal life as she's thrown straight into his magical world containing Demons, Witches, Warlocks, Vampires, Phantoms and all sorts of supernaturals which leaves her confused, breathless, dumbstruck but...... ultimately happy with Thane (sensible girl). There is a lot of mutual 'tingling' attraction going on but the sex scene wasn't very graphic and it didn't need to be as it was emotionally intense.

Worth a credit? Well it's left me bereft - putting the feeling into words - it's like you're starving, so you order your favorite pizza, it's delivered, you open the box mmmmm delicious..... but you're only given ONE more slice - yes, it was a mind-blowing, mouthwateringly, delicious taste but you needed MORE and NOW!!! Luckily I don't have to wait long .... just 9 days (and counting) until the next King audiobook is released and I get to taste my next slice of Heaven which I've already pre-ordered. So, back to 'worth the credit?' well do you really think I'm going to say no after this review and I'm anticipating spending many many more until I reach the ultimate WOW factor and get the WHOLE pizza!!

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Terrific listen

Got confused at one point, as sometimes I was unsure which realm they were in, but it sorted itself out eventually.

But it's a great series! Id recommend this to lots of my friends.
