Publisher's Summary

I’m Jacqueline, daughter of Hasan, ruling werecat of the Americas, the werecat liaison to humanity, and the lover of Heath Everson, Alpha werewolf. But I go by Jacky Leon, and no one knows about the werewolf. 

Some time ago, I met a fae and his family while on the run. They helped me, and for his own reasons, the fae had given me a gift. I never went looking for him. I knew the name he gave me and I did my best not to think too hard about it, him, or his family. 

Life has a fun way of bringing things back, because he's the lost king of the fae and now everyone knows. People who want him to take back the throne, people who want to kill him so he can’t, and people who want to hurt those he loves just to see him hurt. 

And I’m the werecat he gave a gift, just in case he ever needed someone to protect his innocent human wife. I’m now a pawn in a deadly clash of fae powers, the likes of which has never been seen. 

Brin knows even a pawn can change the game. Especially this pawn.

Chapter One

Something is wrong with chapter one. Either it’s an editing or recording mistake, or perhaps even something went wrong with the upload while AWS was experiencing technical difficulties, but this audiobook is missing its correct chapter one. Instead of the first chapter for Royal Pawn we hear the first chapter for Shades of Hate.
Otherwise the story was just as good as ever, a thrilling addition to the series. I count this story as a bit of a self-one-upmanship for Banet. Jacky Leon is back and this time the stakes are higher than ever before.

Another amazing addition

I love this series. I enjoy the action and new adventures that are a part of each new book. The way that you are able to capture the romance without the "smut" makes it possible for me to listen to each book without giving my teenager a sex-ed lesson and allows for continued enjoyment. The narrator has been awesome as well, with my only not that she pronounced the fae sin, Rian's name multiple different ways sometimes in the same chapter. It wasn't a big deal, but was noticed. I can't wait for Rogue Alpha!

So Disappointing on Every Front...

Save yourself the aggravation and skip this one... I enjoyed the other books in this series but unfortunately this book is TRASH! 🤬
1. Fiona is stupid, irritating and a petulant child - by the end I was rooting for her untimely demise.
2. Most of the book is Jacky & Health having sex, trying to have sex or declaring their undying love for each other - repeatedly & ad nauseam...
3. When there is any action... Jacky is totally useless and gets her butt handed to her over and over again...
4. The ending made no sense...
5. Sorcha! Enough said 🤬🤬

Overall - A Complete and Utter Let Down for what was previously an awesome character... Don't waste your time, money or credits

Slow at First, Better at End

This book deals with the Fae, looping back to the Fae Jackie met in book 1. It is slow at first, but towards the end, the author opens up the universe greatly by introducing the Fae and their politics. That will complicate things a bit for Jackie and her wolf.

Another great story

I absolutely love this series! The narrator is amazing and the characters are so relatable. Jacky and Heath are up there with Mercy and Adam, Kate and Curran, Kat and Bones, and Merit and Ethan. would love to read about Cassius and Sorcha.

✨ Spoilers ✨

OKAY, how come NO ONE mentioned how little miz Fiona just acted like a complete BAFOON. And how she put her husband in a position to have to sacrifice THOUSANDS just so could have her precious crusty, dusty motel life back?! Don't get me wrong, everone reacts to change differently, and I honestly couldn't imagine going through any of this. HOWEVER, who just tries manipulate their own partner into something their partner obviously CANNOT DO?! UGH, I felt like I was listening to a 12 year old babble about how it wasn't fair her little brother got a Loli pop and she didn't from the dentist. Like c'mon, Carrie is more mature than that whining, immature BAFOON.
This is my first time commenting, I've been a follower on the audio series for some time now, and as always I loveeeee these wonderouse tales of Jacky Leon. And I can't wait to listen to more.

AWESOME

Jackie and Heath are great together. There is lots of drama and action with a splash of romance. I really like how this series is developing and I look forward to the next book.
