Publisher's Summary

A War is Brewing. Kennedy is one of the last known Druids. Wanted dead by the Seelie Queen and as a coveted asset to defeat this cruel ruler, Kennedy has become a mark. Especially by a sexy, merciless Dark Dweller, Lorcan Dragen. Kidnapped and taken prisoner, Kennedy's life takes a dramatic turn down a path she never imagined. Spending time with a man who killed her best friend's mother and her friend, she knows he is not someone she should care about. But the longer she spends with her enemy, the more her feelings blur the line between what is right and wrong, what is true and what is not. As her magic grows, so does the shy, nerdy girl, and she soon realizes nothing on a list or in a book will prepare her for what is ahead. Even her own feelings.

This is just a retail of one of the darkness books

It's a retail of Embers Darkness books except it's told by Kennedy.
Not much is different. waist of time in my opinion.
Basically the end us all you need to know. theres revolt against the new queen from some albino fea. i would have started with the second book if this was all i needed to know. UGh annoying waist of time.
This narrator was way to high pitched and young sounding. And she huffed and puffed and eas breathy also. That is not good at all from a narrator.

Not my favorite narrator.

Liked the story. I did not like it as well as the Collector series. Also, I should have read the Darkness series first. I was a little lost in the beginning. The audio seemed off. It sounded almost like it had been sped up. I even slowed down the playback a little. That made it a little easier to listen to. But still not my favorite narrator.

good but not great

guilty pleasure to listen to, but the main character gets really annoying in the end and some things just aren't explained. it was heavy romance, and it seemed like everything else was happening around that, so idk where the second one will lead, probs not get it tho. not interested enough to want to continue the series.

The narrator is not working for me.

I could barely get through an hour of this book. This narrator sounds like a 7 year old with a nasal infection. And then they kept mentioning people and events from a previous series that I haven't read so I felt lost. I gave up pretty quickly.

Kennedy’s POV of Blood Beyond Darkness

I didn’t realize that this book would be pretty much a retelling of the last book in the darkness series, I mean yes I know it was from Kennedy’s POV but so much of it we had already gone through. It was nice hearing her POV on some parts but wasn’t necessary on the whole story. I feel like this could’ve been a novella and just covering some of the main things we wanted to learn and hear from her POV. I did like seeing a different side to Lorcan, shocked to find out what really happened with him and WEST and the Queen, my review from book 4 of the darkness saga about Lorcan was completely off base after reading this book. I hate how Kennedy treated Lorcan in the end. I liked hearing what happened during the coronation, very interested in what is to come. I’m more excited for the books that are coming up because they’ll be all new and different.

Good book lousy narrator

The story was at least 4 stars but the narrator doesn’t even deserve 1 star. She sounds like a 10 year old and when it comes to the sex scene it’s disgusting to hear a little child’s voice having sex with an older man. I could barely get to the end of the story. If the next book is the same narrator I will not wast a credit or any money on it and I would not recommend this book to anyone which is to bad because the story is pretty good in itself.

I really want to love Kennedy....but I don't

Of all the series heroines she is the one I struggle with, I just feel meh about her which is a shame as put the book on double speed to get through it.

***Heart Wrenching***

I wasn't going to give a five star review but because it made me cry, laughed, mad and swoon that I gave it a five star rating. I loved Amber and Eli's books so I bought this and I'm not disappointed, well except for what happened to Jared and Owen and also the way Kennedy was acting hot and cold , it was frustrating. All un all it was an amazing book thanks to the brilliant voice of Jesse Vilinsky she is fantastic a five star performance.

I read to about 90%, then deleted it in annoyance

Two things wrong:
- The narrator sounds YOUNG, like a 14 year old. Considering the heroine has sex and we are expected to take her seriously, this was a problem for me. Having said that, the narrator does do a good job with different voices, pacing and inflection (except the heroines’ whining).
- the hero was great, but everyone else was painful. Especially the lead female, as the book progressed. I was cheering on the opposing side, wishing someone would just kill her already.
