Publisher's Summary

"I’m not like other women; I’m Kumari, Queen of the Realm, and I’m cursed."

Trust was a liberty that as Kumari, Bae could not afford, especially after the murder of Bae’s mother, the late Kumari. The Kumari bloodline had to continue regardless of the cost, even if it was the life of someone she loved. 

There were only two things that a Kumari should trust; magic and her seven mates. The race was on for Bae to find and claim her seven mates before she had to defend her realm from an unknown enemy. With them, she still might not win, but alone she would definitely fail.

Oriental RH

This was a very different PNR/RH from anything I have read. The 7 kingdoms each host the new 'queen' each choose 7 suiters. 1 from each kingdom will become her mates.
This book has the claiming of her first 2 mates. The 1st warrior the 2nd a scholar.
If you think it's going to be that easy you're wrong.
1st is a prophecy that tells of her doom, the end of her line, and death of magic Also few other things.
2nd is a conspiracy from within who mean her to fail and or death to someone important to her rule.
3rd an unknown evil able to not only kill in the most viel way but able to kill the magic and preventing their soul's rebirth so to say.
Last the attacks on her people.
The fate of her people, herself, and magic its self is in her hands with the aid of her 7 mates.

Cute Series!

I thought this book was really cute, I like Bae. She's smart yet naive and I like her mates. They're sweet and attentive! The describes the world extremely well and makes me want to visit it! The different realms are so engaging I don't know which one I'd choose!

Enjoyable story

My first kitsune story and I’m enjoying learning the lore through the telling of the story. I missed a bit of detail through the last bit of the story, but I’m very much looking forward to finding out what happens with the Kumari and her mates.

Baskerville Book Reviews

If this is the first of my reviews that you’ve read, I usually write longer reviews. This book is short and hasn’t given me much to talk about. While this story is technically a reverse-harem fantasy romance story (or as I’ve taken to calling them; pin cushion smut), it’s almost entirely set up.

I still think this is good, despite the lack of payoff. Though I admittedly have a weak spot for fantasy and smut…. and reverse harem stories. If anything, I’m more worried about how this will be wrapped up in the sequel. Not a whole lot happened and I worry that it will feel rushed. If you’re looking for reverse harem smut by this same author with more of a payoff; might I suggest Lupine? It’s the only other series of hers I’ve dabbled in. I’ve also reviewed it, so go read that.

The narrator is good. I wish I had more to say. One of my favorite things to do is complain about narrators who can’t pronounce basic words such as caramel (which came up in this story). She pronounced it fine and there weren’t any of audible’s common errors. Overall the audio was great, which is a rarity for sure.

Good start

There’s a good amount of world building in the story which I enjoyed a lot. It did take me a little bit to really get into the story but once I did I didn’t want it to stop. There is a rough cliffhanger at the end which drove me a little crazy. Bae’s adventure is really interesting and I’m excited to see where it will ultimately lead. There’s some really great character interactions so overall a very good start to a good series.

A good story

To become the next Kumari, Bae had to find her 7 mates. A race to save herself, magic & her realm. Each time she had to choose from a group she had to go on a date with each one. She picked 2 in this story. She also has an eye on her third. The characters were great & can't wait for the next one.

A five star listen

Book 1 in the series. It’s a reverse harem story. The author, Hanleigh Bradley wrote a very detailed story with lots of descriptions that make you feel like your right into the story with the heroine. This a fantastic fantasy story that has lots of magic .
Heroine is Bae.
Bae mother was murdered. Bae now has to find her seven mates not only to safe her magic but to safe the world as Bae knows it . Three mates are claimed and then she meets another two . She needs to find another two then the world is right .

Elizabeth LaRose performance is great. First time I heard her . Her voice is strong and smooth

Intrigue and betrayal

This was a fantastic read, full of intrigue and betrayal and romance, I loved the conspiracy and prophecy at the heart of the plot. The characters were interesting and I loved the the little silver fox, I definately want to read the next book. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
