I read Storm and Lukas and was very reluctant to listen to Vandal because of all the dark reviews. I'm glad I finally listened to Vandal, however I'm not a fan of BDSM so I won't read it again. Many heartfelt moments. Worth the credit? yes master. lol

Cole delivered another emotionally charged story about two characters coming together after a horrible tragedy. It was dark, raw, full of so many emotions and had light BDSM. The emotions the characters experienced felt genuine and it broke my heart listening to the characters dealing and coping with the aftermath of the tragedy that left both the H/h broken, and emotionally distraught. I'm not a fan of BDSM stories, but Cole did a great job writing this plot. Vandal's insecurities about his childhood, and parents not wanting him is reflected by his need to control and dominate through a D/s lifestyle. While some of the sex scenes were hot, I felt the chemistry between them was lacking. Of course, they needed and wanted each other but this was driven by their need to fix and control. Regardless, it's a great story full of emotions and an awesome addition to the series!
Loved the narration! Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell always deliver an amazing performance.

If you think Storm is good then this is even better if thats possible very unexpected story with a relationship built on lies that develops so well and the unexpected twist well who would have guessed .
I can't recommend this listen enough Joe and Maxine perform there narration so well and I am looking forward to Lucas
5 big stars all the way

Wow what a twist at the last chapter, never saw that coming , brilliant book glad it was a happy ending.
Any additional comments?
The opening scene of this book tore my heart up into little pieces! VANDAL is more angsty and heartbreaking than the first book in the Embers and Ashes series, STORM.
Vandal is a very broken hero with a very sad childhood and an even sadder present. When he meets Tabatha, who is also going through her own loss and heartache, he sees it as an opportunity to perhaps make amends for his mistakes. I loved the BDSM exploration in this story. I liked that it doesn't fully dominate the entire plot and there were more layers to this story than just the DS relationship.
Carian Cole's narrative is addictive and entertaining. I loved the interaction with the other band members and their own parallel stories. I listened to the audiobook and Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell are one of my favourite narrating duo. They delivered an amazing job as always.
This is the 3rd Carian Cole book I've read and so far, I've enjoyed them all. The story lines and well constructed and the characters are just right. This book in particular is very dark and a bit depressing but it just adds to the story. There is a lot more sex scenes in this compared to the other books. The voice actors suit the characters, especially Vandal. The BDSM is not OTT. I would reread.
