Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling author, Ella Fields, delivers a heart-wrenching tale of impossible yet unstoppable love in this all-new standalone enemies to lovers fantasy romance. 

The king of wolves was more beast than man, more tyrant than king, and so much more than he seemed. 

Raised to avenge his murdered parents, he’d been trained and conditioned until nothing but violence and hatred lined the walls of his dead heart. 

For nearly four years, I’d done all I could to help my kingdom as we faced the wolf king’s unconquerable evil — hardly anything at all.   

As the only heir to the Gracewood line, I’d been relegated to menial tasks that would keep me and my secrets safe.    

A chance to do more than fret behind our castle walls arrived when I breached them after overhearing my parents’ plans for my future. Fleeing, I unknowingly raced into a fate we’d all desperately hoped to avoid.    

By the time I saw him coming, it was far too late. For my family. For my kingdom.    

For my heart.    

Before I could staunch the bleeding, the king had me under his giant paw, and one wrong move after another caused those razor-sharp claws to sink deeper and deeper beneath my bruised skin.    

I might have been trapped, naïve, and furious, but I still had a kingdom to save — and a plan.    

Yet when we collided, the bloodshed, the fear, his atrocities...all of it dissolved like stardust upon the night sea.    

The stars had mapped out our destiny, but it didn’t matter what they or my heart wanted.    

I refused to see the enigmatic male, the heartless lost boy with a soul beneath the flesh of a monster.    

The savage king who’d destroyed everything I loved would fall — even if my heart fell with him.  

Inspired by Hades and Persephone, Rumpelstiltskin, and The Swan Princess, The Savage and the Swan is not connected to any other Ella Fields novel. It’s a full-length standalone romantic fantasy containing mature content.

Male voice is terrible

I was completely sucked in for the first part of the book....and then the guy started reading. His voice doesn't even remotely match how the woman preformed the character. I'd have rather she read the whole book. His voice just automatically turned me off from the story. its a shame, really.

Happily not what I was expecting.

Personally loved this book and how it was narrated. I didn't know I was kinda into romance novels until this book and I'm surprised and happy about it. The book was written very well and flows great through out the story. The small attention given to the details around the characters allows you to visualize what's going on quite well. That paired with the duo who narrated this book made for a very awesome listen. Definitely recommend to anyone who's on the fence or has this is their wishlist....get it!

An angsty, emotional, steamy fantasy romance!

Ella Fields has always been one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. After recently discovering my love for fantasy romance, I could not wait to start the Savage and the Swan! This was all the things I love about Ella’s writing. Angsty, emotional and steamy with a magical, fantastical feel. The story and characters captivated me immediately. The book is about a faerie princess, Opal and a wolf king, Dade. He is savage and out for revenge against Opal’s family and land. Naturally these two do not get along from the get go. The sparring and banter between them I loved. The story begins with Opal literally witnessing her father’s heart ripped out from in chest right in front of her. From that moment, she is devastated and comes up with a plan to exact revenge for her family. However, with all things, best-laid plans do not always work out. The love story between Opal and Dade starts out with them as enemies but as they work together, the magnetic pull between them cannot be ignored. As they come together in their quest to unite and bring peace to their lands, I could not get enough. The story is full of several twists and turns I did not see coming and this was just phenomenal writing! The audiobook is narrated by Kristen DiMecurio and Ralph Lister, which are both new to me narrators. They both did a great job portraying the heavy emotions, danger and suspense in this story. I will be on the lookout for more books by these narrators in the future. Overall I loved everything about this book and recommend it to fantasy romance readers/listeners.

Why do so many people like this??

Emotionally manipulative male and she’s like fine with it because he’s hot??? 😜 he’s also violent and like doesn’t understand why that’s not great. Like come on he’s not a 5 year old who doesn’t understand why he shouldn’t be throwing a fit. He could at least know what he’s doing is immoral but be all like “gotta do what I gotta do.” So far Iv not seen any actual reason for the violence tho. He’s just like a little spiked kid who doesn’t have the comprehension.

Male voice not at all reflective of main character

Female narrator as perfect. Male voice sounds like a pirate, not a prince as portrayed in the book.

Good story

The story is really good m, a little bit predictable but worth the listen. Although I agree with everyone else, the male narrator is not a good fit, should have just had the female narrator (Kristen DiMercurio) read the entire thing

Great story so so male narrator

This story was incredible! World building and riveting. The only thing was the male narrator. His voice was so wrong for the part, too old and creepy sounding. Kristen dimercurio more than made up for it. One of my favorite female narrators ever!

dades voice

the voice of Dade was hard to hear I would pause and read it myself until the voice of opal would return. I dont know why but it was hard to get behind his voice.
overall the audio was really good.

Not impressed

The story was long winded, boring at times, things were left unexplained.... I really don't understand why it had so many great reviews.

Good, but I don’t know why

Overall I think I enjoyed this book, but I couldn’t really tell you why. The story seemed to jump around and skip over some details I felt you needed. I don’t really understand how much time passed between the start and the end. The male narrators voice didn’t seem to match the character and he had an accent but not when the female narrator voiced him.

With that being said, I did enjoy it. It was an easy listen and an engaging enough story line. I’d give it a 3.5/5
