Publisher's Summary

Addison Monroe took a chance on becoming a Guardian to fight alongside the forces of Heaven in the war against Hell. A girl with a dark past, she had nothing to lose...until she fell in love with Jack Bennett. Now that she's lost him too, there's nothing left for her but a mission - a cause she's truly come to believe in. With one of Hell's most notorious demons - Lilith, mother of legions - after her, she can't afford to let her personal life become a distraction.
As the war with Hell continues, Jack Bennett fights to get himself back in the game. Little does he know that returning home will only complicate matters, as nothing can ever be the same between him and the two people he cares for most in the world: his best friend, and the love of his life.
Micah Boudreaux never thought he would get stuck babysitting "the chosen one" all by himself, but without his partner, Jack, in the picture, he isn't left with much of a choice. The fact that she's a demon half-breed only reminds him of all he's lost to the side of Evil. Yet, hating her becomes difficult, as he's forced to work alongside her on a mission he's spent seven years trying to complete. He never counted on Addison stoking feelings in him that have lain dormant for so long.
It's wrong to want her. She's his best friend's girl, and has the blood of demons running through her veins. Yet, despite all of it, the demon-hunter with a complicated past will dare to hope for more. Even though life has never given him much, he will dare to hope for love...even in the midst of a dark world and a conflict he sees as unwinnable.

Henry McNulty leaves me breathless.

What made the experience of listening to The Seal the most enjoyable?

Beside the amazing writing by Elise Marion, the narrator, Henry McNulty, is absolutely the best i have ever heard. Henry could read the ingredients on the cereal box and leave me panting for more. His sultry voice is so languid I could just float away.


Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is Micha. Beneath the tough facade beats the heart of a gentle giant. I long to fix him and take away his pain. The fact that he is built like Thor doesn't hurt matters in the least.


Which character – as performed by Henry McNulty – was your favorite?

Again I have to say Micha, Henry nails that Cajun french accent beautifully.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely. Henry McNulty brought this book to life and played it out in front of me. I was sucked in from page one.


Any additional comments?

The heartbreak, lust, and the need for revenge are palpable while listening to Henry McNulty narrate Elise Marion's The Seal. Having left me with one hell of a cliffhanger in the previous book, The Guardians, I was salivating for more.

Can I take a moment to appreciate the Fantastic specimen that is Micah? Lord have mercy! Write me in as a character and let me heal his broken soul.

The narration brought this action and fast-paced storyline to life. The connection I felt towards Addison and Micah was real. Their pain burned into me. I can't even.

Once again Elise Marion has left me with one heck of a cliffhanger and waiting in limbo for book 3.

Great addition to the series

Any additional comments?

The war between heaven and hell is never ending. Things change from day to day. You never know what will happen or who your next battle will be with. Friend or foe.

Once again the story pulls you right in and never lets go until the last sentence. It pulls the characters (and you) though a wide variety of emotions. Regardless if you like the direction the story is taking or you wish it would unfold differently, you cannot deny that Elise Marion knows how to tell one heck of a story that is very entertaining, interesting and engaging. She blends her stories with the perfect amount of suspense, action, intrigue, mystery and steamy scenes. The twists and surprises keep coming.

You really need to read the series in order. This is not one of those series that each book is a standalone. This story picks up where the first book ended and builds on the events that took place in the first book.

Even though Addison chose to align herself with Heaven in war against Hell, she is straddling a thin line between good and evil. She could go either way. Learning who her step father may be a game changer and have lasting repercussions.

Even Guardians aren’t always perfect. No matter what they have trained/prepared for they cannot control their heart. They have feelings, heartache, joys, doubts and every other emotion. This complicates things when emotions get in the way. We have the makings of a love triangle….nooo…seriously ….even if it was only for comfort. Have I said I hate love triangles. Without Jack, Micah and Addison are left continue the fight against evil. The absence of Jack and the loss they feel from his "death" lead them to seek comfort in each other which in turns bring them closer.

Be warned this story does end in a cliffhanger. Really looking forward to the next book in the series. Definitely a series I will continue with.

Henry McNulty does a great job with the narration. Nice voice. Easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a smooth even pace. Really good character voices. It was always easy to tell who was speaking. He was able to bring the characters and the story to life. He is the perfect narrator for this series. Very enjoyable.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.
