Publisher's Summary

War is on our doorstep. The odds have never been so bleak.

The Dark Goddess invades from the south, an unstoppable army of ghouls at her command. Darkwinter gathers in the north, their attack imminent. Rebel factions divide the realm, undermining Keradoc’s rule, and leaving Midnight ripe for invasion.

And with every passing night, we sink deeper into the torments of our own souls, the secrets of the past as dangerous as the enemies of the present.

Love and loyalty have seen us through the worst of Midnight’s brutalities, but it’s no longer just me and my fierce, protective monsters. Our fates are now bound to the realm and its warlord - a cruel, enigmatic fae harboring dark secrets of his own.

Secrets that will either help us win this war...

Or destroy everything we’re risking our lives, our hearts, and our very souls to save.

Blood and Madness is the third book in The Witch’s Monsters series, a steamy paranormal and dark fantasy romance featuring a sassy, badass witch and the fiercely protective monsters who’ll destroy anyone who touches her. Expect sizzling enemies-to-lovers romance, damaged guys who hate everyone but their witch, and plenty of dark, supernatural thrills!

What a thrill ride and brilliant multicast!

First of all, I am still reeling from this ending because that was a jaw-dropper but at the same time, what a captivating thrill ride this has been so far with Sarah Piper´s WITCH´S MONSTERS series! The suspenseful mystery just keeps on gripping me, along with the deliciously layered steam and emotions of this RH romance. Sarah´s built of this dark world of Midnight and plot development is fascinating. Blood & Madness is action-filled with unexpected new twists and turns the farther the journey takes you. Hayley and her monsters are continuously dealing with further threats, their own internal demons, more heartbreak, betrayal, and surprising revelations which also brings them closer together in more ways than one as the spice and steam between the bedsheets do not disappoint at all.

I am loving the audio production and listening to this brilliant multicast, so much. Their combined talent is giving us a magnificent audio experience and each of these voice actors continue to bring Sarah´s fantastic story to life by conveying every feeling and emotion to perfection. From all the delicious protective growliness of Aaron Shedlock "aka the demon Jax" and Jason Clarke "aka *Gargs* Hudson" to the sassy determined badassery of Mackenzie Cartwright "ake Hayley the blood witch" down to Teddy Hamilton whose performance of the fae vampire Elian & evil demon warlord Keradoc just stole the show for me in this one. There are chapters that were incredibly emotional and he just portrayed the power of these emotions so beautifully, my heart was hurting for him, plus I loved the way he imitated Keradoc.

Now, I am eagerly waiting for the intriguing conclusion of Blood & Magick to wrap up this bewitching series.

Excuse me, but if you haven't started this series yet then you need to asap! This book was the best yet and Haley must keeps amazing me. The world of Midnight is so complex I loved the way we get to explore more of it each book. Lots of secrets were revealed and I'm anxious to see where things lead in book 4!

Heart stopping and thrilling!

I can’t get enough of The Witch’s Monsters series! Blood & Madness, book three in the series, is just as thrilling, action packed and suspenseful as the first two books. Haley Barnes, a blood witch, is still being held captive by Keradoc, the Warlord of Midnight. Along for the ride are her men – Elian, Hudson and Jax. Elian is in dire straits after going on a spree of destruction that almost ended his own life. Her long ago love for him has been tarnished by his behavior but has never completely faded, and she is still so fiercely loyal to him. While his friends help him recover, Haley spends more time with Keradoc and begins to feel an even greater connection to him. She agrees to help him in his effort to keep his realm safe and defeat the dark goddess Melantha who has evil plans for both Midnight and Haley herself. After surviving a harrowing, near death experience, Haley demands an explanation from Elian as to why he left her years ago. He finally gives in and his story is one of sadness and deep loyalty to his twin brother Evander that pulled him away on a rescue mission and ultimately resulted in sacrificing his chance of ever truly being with Haley again. In the end, they all head to the mountains to help Keradoc (or the man who seems to be Keradoc) in his quest. Along the way, more secrets are revealed, passion is shared and lives are changed. It’s such a thrilling ride with a heart stopping ending that will make you desperate for more of Midnight.

Sarah Piper writes amazing stories and builds fantastic worlds with unique characters, but she also has a talent for creating the hottest, steamiest love scenes. When Haley and Hudson (the strong, broody gargoyle) get it on, beds are broken, hearts are bonded and minds are melted! It was worthy of a re-listen before I could move on. And when Haley admits her love for all three of her monsters and the desire to share it together, the passion and heat is ramped up even more. She was already a fierce, passionate, strong woman and the love of her men inspires and strengthens her even more.

I loved the narration by Mackenzie Cartwright, Teddy Hamilton, Jason Clarke and Aaron Shedlock! They brought each of these intriguing, unique characters to life in the most perfect way. Their fear, anger, love and passion is so palpable and filled with emotion. I have loved the dark beautiful world of Midnight and the incredible stories that Sarah Piper has brought us in this amazing series. I’m both excited and a little afraid to see what happens next!

Bravo Sarah Piper !

Holy gargoyles this is the best one yet ! Teddy Hamilton reigns supreme in his narration of Keradoc and Elian. The fierce emotion and brokeness in his voice destroyed me. Sarah Piper’s beautiful literary style and the amazing narration by Teddy, Jason (hot hot hot !) Aaron and Mackenzie (my favorite witch ever) allowed me to visualize every love scene, fight, struggle and thrilling moment throughout the book. This book is packed with action, the suspense just build and build and im on the edge of my seat the entire time! Cant wait for the final-showdown with Melanthe ! 👏🏻

So Worth the Wait

As prisoners of Midnight's warlord, Haley and her men are forced to carry out his plans to win his war. Elian, Jax, and Hudson are tasked with creating a drug so addictive, it would debilitate the warlord's enemies with no care for how Elian, or any other citizen of midnight, would lose their fight with Dream. Haley was the warlord's secret weapon and worked, non-stop on her spell craft. All while wearing a magic dampening cuff, making her an easy mark to enemies who want to capture and use her.

When Haley is placed in mortal danger by the carelessness of the warlord's actions, some of the burning questions from the first two novels get answered. Not only is this group fighting possible dangers close at home, but the Goddess has returned to Midnight and is now coming after Haley. Will Haley take the opportunity to return home to her sisters or decide to stay and defend a world that now felt like home.

The author has built this beautiful and terrifying world of Midnight as well as given us four strong, sexy monsters that have their own issues, but all share a goal: Protect the brazen, strong-willed woman who claimed their hearts. Whether they deserve it or not. I loved the layers and intrigue in this beautifully written novel and series. The answers provided concerning a few of the mysteries were worth the wait and only make me want more of these characters and this writer's work.

Thrilling Continuation!

Gah! This just gets better and better! This fast paced, steamy, dark fantasy romance was an entertaining and thrilling story to listen to on audio. Sarah Piper writes captivating story filled with witty, sexy banter, action filled twists and turns, and some steamy scenes that will leave you panting for more. We get to see a new side of Keradoc that will make you like him. There are so many new layers that develop in this story and and the cliffhanger is shocking. I loved this on audio! Mackenzie,Jason, Teddy, and Aaron are phenomenal in their performances of Haley, Hudson, Elian/Keradoc, and Jax. They brought this story to life. Teddy as both Elian and Keradoc was incredible. Both characters are tortured souls and long for Haley’s affection, Teddy captured them wonderfully. Can’t wait to see how their story ends!

Amazing!

This is a fantastic paranormal series with an incredible cast of characters. I was thrown for a loop with some of the revelations that have come about in this book and I am still trying to wrap my head around the ending. Hopefully the next book will give readers a HEA.

I listened twice because I enjoyed this so much!!

Betrayal, secrets, hurt, love, extremely spicy times, you name it, it's going down! Even some crazy situations with the guys coming through for Haley in ways that were unconventional and dangerous, but what Haley ultimately needed at the time. So many  crazy twists and turns, it kept me on the edge of my seat right up to the end and then HOLY COW! What an end!
Every moment of the audio was perfection! These narrators were made for the characters. I couldn't even pick a favorite because they were all so good.
