Publisher's Summary

A gay fantasy series based on Cinderella.

Can a human king and a Fae prince’s love overcome ancient hate?

Former servant Finn Ashton is now Prince Finrael Ravenspar, beloved son and heir of Fae King Thalanil. Though Finn has finally found his true family, Finn’s heart belongs to human King Rohan De Clare, whom his father has banished from the Fae Empire forever.

After seeing Fae magic with his own eyes, Rohan realizes that Fae and humans must work together to restore balance to the land. With his kingdom beset by dangers on all sides, Rohan finds it difficult to focus as he has left a piece of himself with his Fae prince lover, Finn. Rohan sees his chance to save his kingdom - and his heart - by proposing a ball and an alliance with the Fae.

Unfortunately, the ball won’t just bring together allies, but enemies.

This will be a five-book, high fantasy series with fated lovers, magnificent monsters, and powerful magic.

Note: This novel series has cliff-hangers! Every audiobook will end on one. That's my natural writing style. If you do not like cliff-hangers, wait until the whole series is published to listen. Thanks for the support!

X. Aratare writes gay paranormal romance with witches, vampires, magic, and mystery. Though some books may venture into dark territory, they will all have happy endings.

Totally engrossing!

The use of two different narrators was brilliant! They made the text come alive. I was blown away by both of their performances. I hope other authors will consider this in the future, although I understand it must have taken considerably time, money, and effort. We the readers are so appreciative!


Book 3 in the series is a return to form for the series and in some ways is the most exciting of any of the books so far. we the readers get to explore the kingdom beyond the Wall and learn more about the culture and customs of the Fae.

Be warned! this story relies heavily upon the "lovers-separation" literary device. where the lovers are separated by circumstance in order for each one to grow individually before being reunited. I usually loathe when stories rely on a separation to build tension between love interests.

However, this book navigates this issue perfectly. There is so much to explore and learn about each character. so neither character becomes a needy pathetic mess longing for the other while doing nothing.

I love how the author takes different chapters and tells events from different character perspectives it really adds a unique and interesting flavor to the story. I highly recommend this to anybody who is interested in fantasy, fiction or lgbtq fiction. ❤️

I have to admit that this is a fun series

X.Aratare is a wonderful writer of gay romance. I have listened to a couple of X's series, and found them light‐heartedly dark, yet darkly enjoyable. I look forward to listening to the rest of this series.

Omg!

What is there to not like about this story?? X. Aratare is an amazing story teller and it definitely helps when you have someone reading it to you! It adds a different aspect or perspective to the story! And on top of that, I'm rooting for Fin and Rohan!

A stunning listen.

X. Aratares books are always amazing and this is no exception. Fascinating heroes, villains and characters in the gray. Edward Fox is a fantastic narrator and was the perfect choice and Hannah Hart was great as well. Can’t wait to read book four.

Narration for the win!

I love fantasy and this series delivers in spades. The narration is amazing. Edward Fox could read the cereal box and garner my undivided attention.
