Publisher's Summary

From the award-winning author of the Dreamland series comes a new dark romantic fantasy about a young woman finding hope in her powers of destruction.

The Thief Kingdom is a place hidden within the world of Aadilor. Many whisper of its existence, but few have found this place, where magic and pleasure abound. There, the mysterious Thief King reigns supreme with the help of the Mousai, a trio of revered and feared sorceresses.

Larkyra Bassette may be the youngest of the Mousai, but when she sings her voice has the power to slay monsters. When it’s discovered the Duke of Lachlan is siphoning a poisonous drug from the Thief Kingdom and using it to abuse his tenants, Larkyra is offered her first solo mission to stop the duke. Eager to prove herself, Larkyra accepts by posing as the duke’s potential bride. But her plans grow complicated when she finds herself drawn to Lord Darius Mekenna, Lachlan’s rightful heir. Soon she suspects Darius has his own motivations for ridding Lachlan of the corrupt duke. Larkyra and Darius must learn to trust each other if there is to be any hope of saving the people of Lachlan - and themselves.

Welcome to the world of Aadilor, where lords and ladies can be murderers and thieves, and the most alluring notes are often the deadliest. Dare to listen?

couldn't finish

I got about 20 chapters in, fully emerged in the story, when I had to quit. The female narration is just too hard for me, personally. So monotone, so unaffected. I just couldn't finish.

Solid magic, flimsy romance

An entertaining and easy listen. I felt a lot of the ideas for the magic and fantasy were really fresh and fun. Loved the thief kingdom concept. I do want to note the similarities between this story and The Bridge Kingdom—a gorgeous blond spy infiltrating a stormy kingdom that ends up falling for the broken leader. I also found myself wishing some of the romantic interactions with the characters would just stop because they were so vanilla. So very boring and lacking any sort of heat. Mellow, turn up the heat, girl.

I look forward to the next book!

Narrator has room to improve

The female narrator had too clear enunciation at times. Often her was tone overly formal.

Great Story

This is the first audible I have finished! It’s creates a picture in your head and the female voice is great! The male performer is good as well, I just hate that when performers use their voice for for her characters it isn’t consistent and I had to think about which character is talking.

DNF

I was bored and the narration did not help. I am very disappointed. Normally, this is my kind of read but I’ve chosen the wrong book this time.

Raining on the Parade

Listened to this on a long drive and out of sheer will finished. The last few chapters so annoyingly cringe-worthy it was almost unbearable. The narrators did what they could with this story. Plot - weak, characters - undeveloped or stereotypical, romance - felt like stepping on a slug that was cold, wet, and uncomfortable.

Good

I really thought this book was very interesting. The author was very creative when it came to this book. I did like all of the characters especially the two main ones. I did like how Darius first met lark. I also liked the hawk that lark had. I did like the narrators of this book they did a very good job. Sometimes it seemed like the female reader was a little too dramatic in some areas.

Loved it. 5 Nov 2021

I wasn’t sure how I would like this book after reading other reviews. I am so glad I took a chance on this. I got the audio version and I really enjoyed both narrators. I am 52 and I enjoy most genres. This book might be for ages 15 and up, due to some situations. However, I consider this entertainment and there is much worse that is being seen on screen by children much younger than this. On that note, I cannot wait to get to the next book in this series.

Fun, creative read

The world that EJ mellow creates in this story is incredible. A really enjoyable read that’s a nice blend of easy reading, suspense, and transporting you away from your day to day.

Good Story

Took me a few chapters in to get into this book. It was like dropping down in the middle of the book and trying to catch up. once I did, halfway in , I enjoyed the story.
