Great world building

Loved this story! Always a fan of a strong, determined FMC and when the guys of her growing harem are all so unique. I enjoyed seeing how each of the guys helped her in different ways and I can’t wait to see how their story continues.
The only complaint was when the female voice actor did some of the guy voices, it was kinda stilted and off. But overall, loved it.

Great story

This was a great story but the female narrator’s male voices sound like the are computer generated. There is no voice inflection or differences at all. It is hard to figure out who is who and if they are alive or dead. Troy Duran is always amazing. I wish he could have narrated the entire book.

great slow burn in an engaging story

There's definitely a couple of cliffhangers, one with the story itself and the other the relationship. the story is cohesive and I want to see what happens next, which is great because the romance takes a backseat to the action in this book. The only thing that irritated me is Rose's performance; her lines are overly enunciated especially at the beginning and stilted, and her male voices are worse. I really notice it with Narota (sp?), who is so delicious when Duran speaks and is like a computer generation from Rose. The performance would have been much better if they could do duet within chapters instead of switching chapters. Duran does a great job with all the voices, saving this from 3 stars.

captain's log...

The female narrator reads like captain kirk speaks. drives me crazy. The male narrator, on the other hand, reads like a sex god. otherwise its good so far...

Good book

i liked this story i am downloading the 2nd book of the series now. The story was a little predictable but ive read many RH stories & there is only so much unpredictability the story can have especially concerning the dynamic between the MC & her love interest(s ). The storyline isnt exactly fresh- long lost princess finds out who she really is after gaining powers... but its a good story so that makes up for it in my opinion. So far its well written enuf & the characters are interesting enuf to keep u wanting to know whats going to happen.

Not sure

I usually love all things witch, vampire etc. This book just didn't grip me and I struggled to get into it. I did eventually finish listening but I won't be purchasing book 2 which is a shame as The blurb looked so promising. The narration is excellent though and maybe this just wasn't for me.

Not sure what was worse the story or the narration

Really struggled to listen to this. Was a waste of a credit and my time.

I did not know which character was speaking half of the time and the female narrator was very poor and sounded very unnatural. There was not much difference between the characters in the way of speech or personality in either the narration or the story which made it very confusing.

There was no character development at all and not much story development either. I definitely won't be wasting my time on the next book

Ruined by poor natration

The story itself is good, aside from the overuse of daft nicknames for the main female character.
Absolutely ruined though, by the female narrator who when reading the male voices sounds like the cross between a robot and a 10 year old reading with their fingers running slowly beneath each word.
Thankfully this book was free, I'd love to read the rest in the series but I cannot suffer any more of the same narrator unfortunately.

Earache

I only managed a few chapters. Female narrator seemed to over emphasise a lot of the words and even sounded stiff and robotic especially whilst narrating the male lines. I could not concentrate on the story and to be fair I am not sure if it lacked substance or whether the narrating overshadowed it.

I would have gave it more stars

If the woman reader just did the woman's lines. and the guy reader read the rest I would have given more stars. the woman was to robotic for the male voices. and it crossed over to the female parts. If it wasn't for the guy's voice thrown in there I might not have bothered listening to the whole book. She was that annoying.

AMAZING!

This was an awesome audiobook! The female narration for anyone but the female protagonist was a bit robotic but otherwise the rest of the narration was really nice and natural in its rhythm. I found this included in my audible membership and really liked the sound of the blurb. I am really glad I did! My favourite character is totally Akito who despite only having one line in the book, is totally going to be one of the protagonists. And if this does not happen ... I will be very disappointed. This is a slow burn reverse harem romance with an amazing build up to make it oh so hot! I loved Kenna as a female protagonist and her character development throughout the book! Each male protagonist is also amazing and definitely easy to love once you get to know them. There will definitely be more added to the reverse harem as well which is exciting! This is definitely a book I would recommend if you think you might like it! I hope you love it just as much as I do! Enjoy!
