Publisher's Summary

Raised in the backwater province of Crowthorne, Cara finds her fate bound to a system she despises and a goddess she no longer believes in. When it becomes clear that the heir to the Elbian throne has found disfavor in the eyes of the goddess, Cara is ordained by blood to take her cousin's place as heir apparent.
One man from each of the 12 provinces are chosen by the royal council to pledge their lives and swords as champions and consorts of the future queen. From these men, Cara must choose the future king of Elbia. Before she is able to take her place on the throne, Cara and her 12 must visit each province and perform a sacred ceremony, one that will make Cara question everything she thought was real.
Cara soon realizes that not all of the men who swore to protect her are what they seem, and that there are those who would use her as a tool to gain power.
Cara's Twelve is a refreshingly different, romantic fantasy story of fair maidens and fearless warriors in a medieval land.

Very Unique Fantasy

The story was very unique and different than anything I have previously listened to. It was interesting and kept my attention.

I was not too sure how this story was going to hold my attention but there are quite a few twists and exciting moments and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

If you only like monogamous fantasy romances, this is NOT the book for you. Cara starts right off with 12 consorts! She has 2 years to travel to each of their hometowns and commit herself to their people and chosen consort. After her tour, she will be crowned the queen of the 12 provinces.

All 12 men chosen by the provinces swear loyalty to her and are supposed to be her protectors and consorts but not everything is as it seems. Not all men plan on keeping their vows...

While on tour, an uprising starts and her life and the life of her consorts hangs in the balance. There is a traitor trying to overthrow the current council and change the way things are done.

The narrator did an awesome job bringing the story to life. The story did not turn out how I expected it and I'm hoping for a book 2! There were several misunderstandings and decisions were made by Cara that really surprised me. I'm looking forward to a continuation of this tale!

Hope This is a New Fantasy Series!

Where does Cara's Twelve rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have listened to thousands of hours of Audiobooks, I very much enjoyed this one.


What other book might you compare Cara's Twelve to and why?

I think this genre is Fantasy/Romance? I would compare it to maybe the Game of Thrones or Eragon series in that it seems to be happening in a time long ago, but a date is not given. There was no magic really, or dragons, but it just has that mystical feel to it.


Which scene was your favorite?

There wasn't one scene that stands out, as there are many scenarios going on throughout the story. It's more of a book where the author describes and you imagine.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Any additional comments?

Anne Flosnik did a great job with the narration. I sometimes have a difficult time understanding British narrators, but not this time. Her voice was clear and her pacing was perfect. She was the absolute best choice narrator to tell Cara's story! I am hoping this series continues.I was gifted this audiobook for an honest review.
