Publisher's Summary

They call him the Mad Horde King for a reason. Now, she’s his....

Over a year ago, I was ripped away from my human village to serve the Ghertun, a brutal enemy alien race. With the lives of my family at risk, I am tasked to deliver a message to the one place no human has ever gone before: the capital city of Dakkar.

Before I succeed, however, I am captured by a horde king. A horde king of the Dakkari, a merciless barbaric race bred for war and violence that rule over the hostile and unforgiving planet of Dakkar. 

And this horde king? He’s the most ruthless and insane of them all - with his scarred face, glowing red eyes, and his wicked, dark grin that hides an even darker past. 

I am no one. I am quiet, meek, and fearful...and yet, this fearsome king wants me in his furs. I tremble when he touches me, but he awakens my desire, something I fear I’ll crave...all while I struggle to save my family. 

Now, the mad horde king has me in his possession.

I fear he never intends to let me go.

Mad for the Mad Horde King

The third in the series of Horde King books (I pray not the last), I eagerly awaited the audio version of this book. I'm absolutely enamored with the series, and can imagine at least four or five more based on this very clever world that is so richly developed in this and the previous two books. The narration on this (dual narration, thank you!) was absolutely perfect. This story has a supernatural aspect to it that the others do not, but it doesn't detract from the more prevalent and compelling love story between two individuals broken by familial loss. So worthwhile, but you MUST read the previous two books first.

One of the best books I’ve listened to

I enjoyed this book beyond words! Yes, it’s a romance, yes, hot alien and sweet little human... but the depth of their pasts and how they found each other and opened up to each other was awesome! Such an amazing listen!!!

🌻Horde Life had always fascinated me🌻

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻V from Kansas🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

I enjoyed the first two books more than this one because there was more focus on the daily happenings of Horde life. However, this was a touching, although somewhat predictable, story. ( Aren’t all romances?)

The Horde King, in this book, is a tortured soul with a horrific past. The Heroine has her own issues and together they reassemble their broken souls.

There is a bit of angst, caused by truths unspoken but, all is well, in the end!

With it’s 13 hour length, I definitely think this is a credit worthy listen!

Epic! A slow burn but very good

A very well written story that focuses on more than the sexual attraction and details.

I certainly hope this story gets expanded and explores Vienne’s sister and the Horde King’s right hand man....as well as the new beginnings for the freed slaves of the Ghertun. There’s lots of room and direction for this book alone. A great blend of sci-fi, romance, fantasy, action and adventure! More....more...more please! 😀

A Horde King and Human with Powers Join, Book 3

This book places two together, a Horde King considered mad and heated temper, and a human slave for another species connect. The h has power to know the feelings of others and change them, if needed.
The mystical portions of this story brought mystery and a binding between the two.
I enjoyed revisiting the characters from previous two books. Also the mystery of why the animals are acting strangely and moving....what is happening.
Waiting to listen to the next book.Love the narrators!

Love can be found in unexpected places.

I really liked this story. It was entertaining and enjoyable although it does talk about slavery, abuse, and assault (physical and se*_al). The characters were interesting and likable for the most part. The Dothikar was a major jerk and definitely needed some comeuppance as his punishment for how he treated others. Vienne was sweet but had some issues doing what needed to be done. The mad horde king was drawn to Vienne. The way that Vienne and the king spent time together and learned about each other made me smile. I loved their happily ever after. I recommend reading this book. Or listening to the audiobook as that was pretty great too.

Narration ruins a great story

Upfront: male narrator was pretty good!

female narrator ruined the book for me. She spends the whole book whispering and goes out of her way to have an annoying soft voice. I ended up reading the female chapters and listening to the male chapters on audiobook.

Story is solid. The world building is the best part of the book.

Sex scenes were cringe worthy and were ruined by the author’s overuse of the word ‘suckle’ 🤮 Ruins the sex scenes-Instantly.

The world expands and the series plot thickens!

I enjoyed this installment of the horde king series better than the second and possibly as much or more than the first. The “mad” horde king was actually tormented by visions of dead people but most especially was haunted by his dead twin sister who was brutally murdered and betrayed. In his grief and rage, he is then taken advantage of and tormented by a woman who trains and manipulates his rage. It is this not surprising that he feels protective of the little human who steals into the capital city and begs for his mercy. He allows her to escape but she doesn’t want to escape. She has a mission to free her family from the lizard people. She eventually speaks with the king about the lizard king’s conditions of truce(?) which the king ignores but the warriors see it as an opportunity to infiltrate their lizard enemies. The mad king takes Vienne into his custody to “help” and they fall in love. That’s basically the story. But the story telling is really lovely and the way they care for each other is so sweet and gentle. They have their secrets that eventually get out but I didn’t get the sense of betrayal of each other that I felt in the second book. I really felt these two fought for each other and rescued each other. That was the beauty of this book. Well done! I hope there will be more!

My Favorite

Outstanding plot and characters. Exceptional narration and wow for hot. I like my books to be steamy and this one delivered. Worry not, the plot has so much going on that it never felt like the plot got lost. Thanks to Zoey and our narrators for such an awesome experience.

now this was awesome

I must be weird. all the reviews liked the previous 2 books more than this one, but me..this book was so much better..it had Sci fi and fantasy and supernatural..and a more involved plot.
I was a little frustrated at the "words stuck In my throat " line..there was a lot of that.
it was steamier than the previous books but the storyline of the 1st instalment carries through to an end.
The secrets crawled along, however Daviks wasnt really talked about....I was disappointed about that.
Lia was awesome, her voice for the heroine was perfect.
Aaron is a fave of mine so I'm a bit biased.
it would be interesting to have Violas story written but it doesn't look as though Ms Draven has.
so I guess. all said, this book has more substance than the others and I liked it so much more.

Truly alien world building and complex story line

The Horde King series gets more interesting with every book: the truly alien world building sets this alien romance series apart from others. Even more players and character traits are added in book 3 which composes an intriguing storyline. Although I could have slapped the heroin for her shortcomings, she nevertheless depicts an authentic character - as do all the other figures - villain or hero - in the book. This series only compares with Saving Askara by J. M. Link. The narration is outstanding: both male & female narrators have a wide range of intonation and give all characters a distinct voice.
