Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, there was a princess who lived amongst the shadows and monsters....

I've spent my entire life trapped within the center ring of the Shadow Realm, experiencing the horrors at the hands of my father, the Demon King.

Finally given the chance to explore the Realm further, I jump at the chance....

Except I find more than I bargained for. With a marriage forced upon me, for an alliance that will bring more trouble than its worth, my life starts to be torn in two.

I might be sheltered, but my eyes are wide open.

I won't let the ones who want to destroy me be the ones to rule my life.

The Seven Realms Series/ The Shadow Queen

The Shadow Queen #1 (Seven Realms Saga Series) a dark rh romance ♥️.
I have not read/listened to any other books in the seven realms series, but I absolutely loved this one. The world building is excellent and it didn't even feel like I missed anything. I loved the conceptualization of various realms. Supernatural creatures angels and demons, in a intriguing world. The storyline is engaging, suspenseful with unpredictable plot twists and sensual moments. I loved Morganna Voux, her brother Ares and Caleb is a favorite of mine. I absolutely loved this story.

Jeannie Sheneman did an excellent performance of narrating this spicy and special entertaining audio. Her inflection was bold. She gave characters a distinct tone and expresses their thoughts.

Highly recommend listening this audio. A stellar performance for a top notch audiobook.

The Shadow Queen

OMG! What just happened? This is the first book in the Shadow Queen series. So much happened in this first book. I can’t even imagine what is coming next. Morgan and her brother Aries have grown up as the next heirs for the shadow crown. She has the power of shadow fire. But she has to keep it a secret from her father. She learns of a prophecy that she may be the center of. I honestly can’t wait for the next book! Jeannie Sheneman did a fantastic job narrating this book.

So so Good! Its On my favorites list!

Whoa!! What an amazing story! I had so many emotions running through me while listening to this. The author did an wonderful job creating these Realms. I loved learning about them and meeting all the characters that live in them. I have made so many notes about this book and everything that has happened. I love the characters as they all either good, bad or untrustworthy. That out a special “zing” in the storyline. My only complaint is that the next one isn’t out on audio yet.

I did listen to this delightful gem on audio. The narration is wonderfully done. Its been a while since I have listened to just one narrator read the whole story. Jeannie Sheneman did outstanding being all the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this and am eager for the next one.

Oppressed Demon Princess Discovers Sex & Power

Interesting take on the supernatural. Much alike Nallini Singh's 'Guild Hunter' series, 100 years old is considered as a young one. I do wonder how their psychological development works because in all that time, Morgana has lived a very sheltered and restrictive life. She's surrounded by her father's cruelty and only has her older brother Aries to protect her. It's quite a beautiful relationship amongst the siblings really. They're super close, but not in the icky incest-kinda way.

There's talk of a prophecy and a reverse harem of sorts. If you don't mind insta-lust/fated mates, then this one's for you. Although it just kinda hits you out of no where. One minute she's a virgin, then by the end, she's been ploughed in front of an audience (due to such an archaic and barbaric tradition). I do hope Killian plays a bigger role in the next series because I am quite intrigued by his character. For now though, he's just an acquaintance. Maybe the half demon-fae could help Morgana control her power(s)?

This story ends on a cliffhanger which leaves you wanting more. I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. #FreeAudiobookCodes

The Shadow Queen

Morgana is a misunderstood princess. Everyone thinks she's weak & dumb, but little do they know she's the one that shouldbbe feared. Her story is interesting and i enjoyed seeing her become more confident as this book goes on. The ending was not what i expected, and i need to know what happens next. #AudioObsessionReviewer

Wow

I absolutely love Sloan Murphy and the worlds she brings us.

I love this book. It’s different and out of the norm for a PNR and I enjoy the different takes on what supernatural creatures or even the paranormal world could be. Sloan always thinks outside the box and it makes reading her books an amazing adventurous experience.

I love the characters. I like how Sloan doesn’t highlight just the main characters but that all the characters she introduces have a role and are there for a reason and stay relevant in the story. Each character is well written and bring something different to the story, I love the balance between them and their banter is great. So far all the characters have awesome chemistry and I’m looking forward to seeing how their characters and relationships develop over the series.

This is an amazing world and I was reminiscent of the shadow Walker saga and that world. I love how it’s not a supernatural experience I’ve had before and everything is new and unique. I have read so much paranormal so I love when there’s something out of the norm and it makes me excited for the world development and what else we can expect going forward. The plot is well written and takes you on a journey. It’s easy to read and the narrator did a great job in bringing it to life. I cannot wait to see what happens next in the series.

Talk about brilliant world building. The world was rich and well built with intriguing characters. I’m incredibly excited to listen to the next book in the series. I’m hoping that they use the same narrator as she brought in so many emotions and made me feel them too. This is a really good book

Fascinating & Imaginative!!

I absolutely love Sloane Murphy and her incredible creativity and fascinating world-building. The Shadow Queen is a wonderfully written, reverse harem paranormal romance, a Seven Realms instalment, and set in the shadow realm. The supernatural creatures are absolutely fascinating, angels, demons, and various fantastical creatures. The storyline is wholly engaging, super entertaining, exciting, and unpredictable. The plot twists didn't relent; they kept coming, keeping me at the edge of my seat. I loved it!

Our heroine, Morgan, the Shadow Queen, is an incredibly appealing and competent character with so many layers to her personality. I was super excited to finally hear her story, and I enjoyed every minute. She was easy to connect with; I could feel her anxieties, fear, worry, and excitement. Her journey is an intense adventure, suspenseful, action-packed, and with loads of steam. The book ended with a cliffhanger, and I'm super excited to find what comes next for Morgan.

Outstanding narration by Jeannie Sheneman. She portrayed the characters flawlessly, bringing the various and colourful personalities to life. Overall, The Shadow Queen was a fascinating paranormal listen, one I'm highly recommending.

I enjoyed it

I haven't previously read or listened to anything by this author but the cover caught my eye and when I read the blurb I knew I wanted to listen to it. The story concentrates on Morgan and all she went through in her journey to becoming The Shadow Queen.

The story is well-paced and had no difficulty holding my attention, there were so many twists and turns I didn't want to stop listening, I was hooked and enthralled by all the action and suspense woven through the story all the time wondering what possible outcome there could be.

I loved the characters, especially Caleb he is one sexy, hot male and the chemistry is there for all to see and feel. I was surprised by the ending but I definitely want to listen to the next book in this intriguing and different series.

The narration by Jeannie Sheneman is excellent.

My Thoughts on The Shadow Queen

I’m not gonna lie, the ending of this book kind of killed some of my enjoyment. Through all the dark and crazy twists and turns, I was along for the ride and enjoying it for the most part. But I hate getting to know and really liking a character just for something bad to happen to them. Especially when they’ve already been through so much and they were a good person. I liked this book enough to be interested to see what comes next, but my excitement has definitely lessened because of how this ended. Overall, a good foundation was laid for Morgan and where her journey might lead. And the narrator did a good job with her performance. I’ll just have to be on the lookout for the next book to come out on audio and cross my fingers that what comes next won’t be any more tragic then what occurred here.

Morganna and Caleb!

Morganna is a princess in the Shadow Realm who has been protected from outside forces but that didn’t mean she was protected within her home. She despises her father for the things he has said and done and knows he is not fit to rule but her primary concern is the safety of her brother who is heir apparent. She has recently found out she has undiscovered powers however if her father finds out it will surely lead to her demise.

Caleb and Morganna realized that they were each other’s destiny from the moment they met. The chemistry between them is intense and the love enduring as he is willing to do whatever he can to support her as she handles the challenges that life throws at her.

Suspense, surprises and steam as the events unfold which leaves us wanting more of the characters and their story. I thought the narrator managed to portray all elements of the story and kept you invested from beginning to end. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

Paranormal Romance

The Shadow Queen by Sloane Murphy is a paranormal romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Jeannie Sheneman. This is the first book in The Shadow Queen series.

This is the second book of Sloane's that I have read, and it definitely won't be my last. I was pulled in from the first chapter and couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. The book ends on a great cliffhanger that left me begging for more. I can't wait for the next book in the series The Shadow Bound to be released on December 31, 2022.

Jeannie did an amazing job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of her work in the future.

I would recommend this book if you like paranormal romances, fantasy romances, dark romances, forced marriage romances, or reverse harem romances.
