Publisher's Summary

Book three of this adult fantasy series continues in this epic story inspired by the myth of King Midas, fae, fated romance, and insurmountable greed.

"I don't choose him. Not anymore. I'm choosing me".

King Midas made me the woman I am today. Notorious. Unattainable. His.

The thing about being confined is that you believe it’s to keep the bad out...Until you realize it’s about keeping you in.

I’m now in a strange kingdom surrounded by liars, with no allies of my own, but I won’t sit idly by and let myself wither. No, there’s something that’s bloomed from the pit of my repression. Something dark. Something angry.

But the last thing I expected was for my anger to call out to him. King Ravinger.

He’s sinister and powerful and entirely too seductive. I’ve learned my lesson with trusting manipulative kings, so why does my chest constrict every time he’s near? I need to tread carefully, or I’m at risk of losing much more than just my freedom.

Regret and revenge war inside of me, and I need to figure out a plan fast before I get tangled up in the schemes of kings and queens.

Because I won’t be caught in a cage again. No, this time, it’ll be me setting the trap...I just hope my heart comes out of this unscathed.

Please note: This is an adult fantasy series with dark elements that may be triggering, as well as explicit scenes.

Each book just gets better!

This book had me be aside myself. The plot was just kept coming the build up towards the end was just ridiculous. Midas... Just when you think you have this man figured out he does something else. smh. Auren Went through so much in this book it was agonizing at times to read. Her growing relationship with Rip and his crew, her attempts to reach the other Saddles. it was rough and there were times when I wished shed just leave them alone! but. But I can't help but admire her devotion to trying. Auren is a woman starved of connection and it was so hard to blame her for trying to create bonds with people who shared her experience. we find out more of her backstory in this book and it was rough to hear at some points. we also find out the backstory of a pivotal character and let me tell you, you're not ready. Read. This. Book!

Sidebar: the main narrator is fantastic love her. the other one is great for Midas and Rip but his take on Auren...is painful lol it honestly ruined one scene for me. like the !moment was not a laughing moment but all I could do is cringe-laugh. that said, he can read me Rip's perspective any day.😉

Still not a fan of Narration but love the story.

I just feel the narrator is speaking so slow it kills the mood of the story. I upped the listening speed by .25 and .50 and it seems to help. I've done this for all 3 so far and it's much more barrable. I have no time to sit and physically read a book these days so I really depend on audible versions to get through any books. but this was one I was ready to buy a physical copy for as I hated the narration so much but upping the speed fixed it.

Overall I loved the story, it is finally getting to where I wanted it to go and I can't wait for the next one.

Favorite book of the series

Enjoy that there is a male narrator for male POVs but male narrators voice for Auren is So-So. Spice level increases in book 3 and is quite good. Pacing is improved in book 3. Exciting twists and developments with this book. Plot is very dynamic and makes for a great read. More trigger warnings with this book than the previous 2.

not the best narration

LOVE the story line but narrator has odd pronunciation, tends to be a bit slow/stiff, & uses inconsistent accents.
