Publisher's Summary

Fortuna's entire life has changed. 

She has no idea how to balance her new responsibilities and who she used to be. There are hundreds of faeries in her head, her brother seems to have lost touch with reality, and a werewolf won’t leave her side. Maybe the utter lack of control is why her abilities seem to be changing as well. 

Then there’s Collith - enigmatic, beautiful, and infuriating. He’s not only a king of the faeries she despises so much, but he’s also her mate. And his gentle pursuit causes confusion in her normally unwavering relationship with Oliver. 

As a result of it all, Fortuna now finds herself surrounded by new enemies, as well as ones from her past. The question isn’t whether she is strong enough to make change in such a corrupt court; it’s whether she will survive long enough to do it.

Whoa. Similar to 1 but then abrupt dark turn

The first book was a bit grim at times but not deeply dark. The concept was very intriguing though a little roughly done. This second installment had interesting continuations though I must admit some of the plot lines are being drug out past a readers or listener’s patience. It was going along okay but then took a supremely dark turn. Not sure if I want to go on to book three or not. Readers have to trust authors with their mind and imagination.

Fae world different take

Loved it, I enjoy the world of the fae and all things related. This title took a bit to get into the story but after a few minutes of listening, it hooked me.

My humble and honest opinion- it’s a long one.

First of all I do recommend the series/book it was a good listen. It wasn’t complicated and wasn’t hard to listen the narrator she actually depicted Fortuna’s sass quite well actually. She has some character flaws but really doesn’t any decent character? I do sometimes find her rashness tiring and her quickness to anger to be her true downfall. It make characters seem more real and challenging when they have problems we feel are easily solved.

*Spoilers* Be cautioned

That being said, after the cliffhanger drop off that was the end of book two I imagine that the next book will have a more dark tone as she will have most likely some PTSD. I also sense that she will be struggling with her power more often now and the darkness we already saw coming will creep out more often. I enjoyed the book but the last bit had me pretty pumped and ready to throw down with the author in defense for the characters.(lol🤣) I’m gonna be honest though if I went through what Fortuna just did at the end of this book you would have to peel me off the floor and probably force feed me. No woman should be even near that experience so if she’s maybe a tad bit whiny or anger or whatever in the next book-I can’t say I blame her. Overall a good read and I’m ready to listen to book three even though I’m probably gonna wanna throw hands again lol.

Save your credit

I normally never write reviews but I just had so many issues with this book. I got through the first 4 hours alright before I started to force myself to continue listening. I got past part 1 and I just couldn't continue. The MC is so childish, immature, and stupid. She gives me horny teenager vibes who wants attention from any hot guy. Don't get me wrong, I love sexy time scenes but not when she would literally let herself get assaulted by Lori in a club/bar and she plays it off. Her reasoning is that he was trying to get her mate jealous. Urghh My eyes started to hurt from all the eye rolls and second hand cringe 😬
AND don't get me started on Damon....I got bored of Fortuna constantly saving him. He's a grown adult who is a NIGHTMARE but yet he's super weak and useless. I enjoyed the first book but this one really didn't do it for me.

Unexpected turn

When I say unexpected turn I don't mean the good kind. At least not in my opinion there is a part that has a darker writing style then the rest of the book. And I know you maybe thinking "well this is a paranormal read" but it could possibly be triggering for some it crosses a thin line of consent. And brings in an uncomfortable element that I feel it could have done without, and still been a great book. I can honestly say it kind of took me by surprise since I read the first book. And that's why I wanted to write this review, the rest of the book was still a good read. It just leaves me a little unsure about what lines could possibly be crossed in the third book that I could do without.

A must read - or in this case, listen!

After reading and LOVING the 1st book, I was so excited to start on the 2nd. The author kept the same fast paced, unique story line...no extra fluff! Every situation came together perfectly! As before, the narrator did such an amazing job!

Love this series

I really enjoyed this series. The way Fortuna grows into her relationship is a perfect steady uphill battle. Can’t wait for book 3! I already preordered it!

+18 DARK NA Fantasy, urban fantasy

This series is daaaarkkk and slowww!!! I'm curious about where the story goes, and I will probably read the rest of the series but the emotional damage is huge! It had me cryin and frustrated more then once. The vibes overall are just dark and I don't recommend reading this for anyone under the age of 18 and I don't recommend reading it without looking up CWs and TWs.

It is so far not feeling like a romance, despite there being 3 options, and 1 arranged marriage/marriage of convienience husband.

Narration: good.

Story: ouch.

- fae/fairies, fairy land, fairy king/queen
- calculative + resilient fem lead
- forced proximity
- magic, creatures

Better than the first

The second book was much better than the first, but I still had difficulty connecting with the characters due to the choice of narrator. The storyline is much darker than the first book and there are definitely triggers in the storyline that could affect sensitive readers. I loved the inclusion of the wolf into the storyline, it certainly made the book more interesting. Unfortunately, I’ve decided that I’m not going to continue with this series. It really just wasn’t for me.
