Publisher's Summary

It all started with that night.

The night I made my biggest mistake.

The night I entered their world.

The day I snuck into the infamous Devil’s Ring Fight Club. I had followed my cousin Amelia, who turned out not to be quite as innocent as I first believed. In fact, it turned out she didn’t live in the same world as I did…Not at all.

I knew this the moment I entered his kingdom. My world changed the moment he found me. He gave me a warning that night. He told me if he ever found me again then next time, he wouldn’t be so quick in letting me escape him. His little Red Riding Hood. It was a threat I took seriously as it was only my dreams that took me back to that place. That took me back to him.

That was until they came for me. The Hell Hounds that infiltrated my peaceful world and started the hunt. And there was only one man I knew that had the power to stop them. And my price to pay, was the promise he made me.

That if he ever found me in his demonic fight club again…He was keeping me.

Meaning I only had two choices left, to become the hunted or to make a deal with Hell’s greatest Hunter…

The HellBeast King…

good story, okay narration

I read this story prior to audible coming out and really enjoyed it. The narration is okay, but I can't figure out if she's Irish trying to do an American accent or American trying to do an Irish or British accent. It's really bizarre and she waffles back and forth saying one word that sounds American and another word that sounds British and then another word that sounds Irish. It's really odd and distracting. I will probably listen to the second and third book as it was okay enough to continue listening. It's just a little weird and I wish she would figure that out before doing the next in the series.

As far as the story goes, it's not my favorite of Stephanie Hudson's. I prefer the Transfusion series overall, but one is okay. I am interested in it enough to continue with the rest of the books when they come out. Ella, the Fernando lead, is a little irritating at times. I understand why she is due to her circumstances, but it sometimes seems like she is creating more of the issues then helping.

HellBeast King

Thoroughly enjoyed this. My only complaint is that in previous additions, Lucius does not sound German. But that is a minor issue. Jared is as sexy as imagined! Ella is fiesty and funny, if a bit distracted. love this series so far!

A slow burn but ended up Loving it!!

It took me a few chapters to really get into this one but once I got into I really really liked it. The story is your typical fish out of water, meets enemies to lovers type trope. The main Character Ella gets in really over her head trying to protect her cousin. Again it was a slow burn for me but once the main character grew on me and the story started rolling along I loved it. It ends on a precipice where things can go either way so now Im counting the days to the second book. The narrator I enjoyed. Her accent comes and goes a little in the performance but it didn't bother me.

so bad

I'm so sick of books were the main female is dumb as a brick and so irritating and this female was beyond stupid. this book was boring I had a hard time listening all the way to the end. The narrator was almost as bad. I will not be buying book 2 no way. I have read other books by Stephanie Hudson and loved them but the way she wrote the main female was just not something I can enjoy. stubborn I can understand but down right stupid irritates the hell out of me.

Hail To The King!

This was intriguing from the get go! Ella is a force to be reckoned with and I loved every twist and turn! Alyssa Avery draws you in and keeps you wanting more. So glad I found this series!

Another great read

I love all of Stephanie’s books! Have been waiting for Jared’s story and this one did not disappoint! I also loved the narrator and can’t wait for the next one to come out on audiobook.

Narrator - another disappointing audible set back

All of the Afterlife books and their spin offs are really good- Stephanie Hudson writes so well giving a really believable character to all the people in the books. However in this audio book the narrator has an awesome voice, but chose to read in a really bad English/Irish/American accent for the main character, missing most of the 't's to words in a very strange way. When she slips to her own accent you feel relieved and it is really good.
The problem with series of books in audible each narrator takes their own vision of a character and if you have listened to the others in the same series it can be quite confusing and VERY VERY disappointing. In this one Lucius who is a bad ass vampire King has been turned into a German Count Dracula :0( who says things with a z- "zat is not good". In both Afterlife and Transfusion over 20 books he has never had an accent and is appalled by being typecast as a 'dracula' vampire.

This also happened in the Transfusion series when our lovely little imp Pip was depicted as an old lady at one point and totally out of character. The imp is called squeak for a reason!!!!!

Because these books are are all entwined with each other it really needs a bit on continuity, and when one narrator gets it so right you can listen many times over- Rebecca Rainsford narrated the Afterlife saga 12 books with many different characters that are all believable- it is a shame she could not be asked to read the others or at least narrators to come could be given notes on the characters so as not to make the stories hard to listen to and characters morphing into clichés etc.
It is such a shame this narrator did not listen to any of the previous books to at least get an idea of the characters - now Lucius in this series sounds nothing like the sexy sultry vampire he is and has forced me to stop listening.
With deepest regret.

A must read/listen.

This was my first Stephanie Hudson book and it will not be my last ! The story line was hard to get at first though once it gets going, it’s amazing the twist and turns keep you wanting more. Stephanie has worked magic the way she has given just a little glimpses at a time into the ‘Amelia’s world’. The build up of energy between the MC’s, each chapter you are waiting for the explosion!
Looking forward to book two!!
Plus hoping Amelia will get her story told, please please.

Loved reading this book

Great story but the narrator was really bad. Spoilt it for me. Her male voice wasn’t grr enough and some of her words spoken in the English accent were horribly distracting.

Stephanie did it again

I'm an audible addict and have been waiting not so patiently for this book and it was well worth the wait lucky I have the paperback of the next in the series as I could not wait to see what happens next. Love the characters Stephanie you rock.
