Publisher's Summary

I’ve waited three long years for this....

Hiding. Lying. Spying. Waiting like a spider for her to wander into my web....

Now she’s here, and I have to get even closer to her. I’ll help her. Befriend her. Seduce her, even. The only thing I can’t do is fall in love with her.

Her father took everything from me: my money, my family, my life. He has to pay for what he’s done. And she’s the only thing that can hurt him....

The Lark Notes:

"I’ve been planting clues and Easter Eggs all the way through the first three Kingmakers books—now it’s time for the secrets to be revealed, and the mysteries to find their conclusions. The moment you finish The Spy, you’re going to want to go back and listen to the whole series all over again!" (Sophie)

The Spy is the final installment in the epic dark mafia Kingmakers series. It’s a forbidden romance full of mystery, betrayal, and an explosive conclusion that will give you the biggest book hangover of your life!

Absolutely worth the listen,

I enjoyed listening to this well written mafia Romance, Ivan voice in its true character, Ares sounded stressed out at the beginning which is ideal, Nix narration was soothing. Great story, I can visualized the action sequence at the end! Highly recommend

Entertaining and Captivating!

This is the fourth book in the Kingmakers Series. Spy and Nix story is very entertaining, and captivating. Wow! I loved it! Nix is a wonderful character, strong, smart, and feisty. Spy is enigmatic, handsome, and caring. The characters are well developed, and intriguing. The storyline is filled with secrets, intrigue, action, and twists and turns. This is an amazing addition to the series. Antonio Turner, Avie Paige, and Connor Brown did a great job with the narration. I enjoyed it! Looking forward to listening to The Savage, the next book in the series. I love this series! #TheFlock

Favorite of all the kingmakers! Least favorite narration

Definitely my favorite story of all of the kingmakers Academy. As a audible listener it was my least favorite narration. The narrators would have been wonderful in a different book. I was expecting more accents. With a lot of the characters having Russian and other European history it would’ve been nice to have more of those accents in the audible narration of the book. But again the narrators were fantastic I just think they weren’t the right narrators for this particular book.

Love, love it!

I absolutely love, love, love this story. The narrators brought my favorite Kingmakers book to life. I went into this audiobook having already read the Ebook but I can easily say that I was just as floored with it as I was the first time. It was the way these narrators performed. They fit the characters perfectly and when I lay and listened I saw this book playing out like a movie. It was beyond an amazing experience.

Such a fantastic, surprise of a read!

The Spy is the fourth book in Sophie Lark’s Kingmakers series and is a spin-off/2nd gen series from the couples of Brutal Birthright. Kingmakers Academy is a private college for children of mafia families from around the globe. It’s situated on an isolated island in the Adriatic Sea and once there the students are categorized into 4 houses so to speak: heirs, accountants, spies, and enforcers.

This book has a lot of mystery and intrigue to it just because of the POVs. I don’t even want to say too much either, so it’s hard to talk about this book. 😅 but omg has Sophie set up sooo much with her books and seeing it happen in this book was so good. This book was definitely heavier on the plot, the mystery, the action, revenge, and the POVs. I think the romance was less of a focus for me in this one just because of some other things going on in the story. Some definite freak out moments while reading and seeing things unfold in front of my eyes. lol All the action towards the end had my attention. If you’re a longtime fan of Sophie Lark’s other books, this book will be so worth it! This was originally supposed to be the final book in the series so the long epilogue for all the couples was just everything!! That said, since we were treated to an additional book after, I’m definitely jumping into The Savage next.

What a good one!

This story really took me on a trip! I had to listen intently so I did not miss a thing! This one is loaded with lies, secrets as well as some action. I loved listening to the planning the through process and all the amazing characters! I am not giving anything away because this one answers questions from past books.

I did listen to this on audio. Antonio Turner, Avie Paige and Connor Brown did a wonderful job elevating these characters to the next level.

Book 4 - Kingmakers

This is book 4 in Larks' Kingmakers series. A well written, beautifully narrated mafia romance read. Plenty of twists and turns, Action, adventure and secrets in this read. I loved that we got a taste of the Spy in book 3 and we got the whole story in this one. I can't even give away who our main characters are without giving spoilers - but just know that not everyone is who they claim to be and plans take patience. I loved that there were two stories that fit in this and at first it was hard for me to figure out why we were being taken back in time and how did it correlate to the now story - but everything comes together as it should. Oh the lies and deception but goodness to be found too. A great listen - loved the narration and the HEA. Can't wait for more!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I voluntarily provided this review.

love this series

Sophie gave tidbits trying to mess with your mind and with plot twists, while trying to figure out who the spy was. This book concluded the story so perfectly, with the characters getting their HEA.

Antonio Turner, Avie Paige, & Connor Brown ensemble narration is very good.

Bravo, Sophie Lark!

Book 4 in the Kingmakers series, baby generation of the Brutal Birthright series actually had some players in this one I hadn't met before from her work.

The Bully, Dean Yenin's story showed us glimpses of the elusive spy running around the Kingmakers campus, and the WHY someone would risk breaking into a school for the kids of the worlds most ruthless criminal organizations for three years awaiting their moment to kidnap one of those said students, is very compelling. That is how Rafe ends up masquerading as Aries, his childhood best friend, and descendant of one of the schools founding Mafia families, to earn the trust of a new student, Nix, the daughter of the man who is destroying his family. Even in the underworld, her father is a monster, growing up sheltered in her father's compound, she had no idea that he was so distrusted and hated in the ranks of the brutal mafia business world. Ostracised by her peers, Sabrina Gallo takes her into her group, making it easy for Rafe to play sympathetic ear to the girl he hates. I absolutely loved Nix's origin story, she's a fierce amazon, and I adored how the whole Gallo clan got together to help Rafe when his story got out, his mother is a warrior, I loved the chapters from the third POV.

Well paced story, and the narrators did an amazing job.

Satisfying.

Sophie Lark gas a brilliant mind!

Sophie Lark is a brilliant mind! She wrote this fourth book of the series, and weaved it together so that it pulls in the parents of the Brutal Birthright Series. It was everything that I needed and more. My heart was racing in this book and I loved how much it pulled families together. We’re all stronger together!

I saw glimpses from other books that seemed to reflect so much more about Aries than was being shown. Always watching, and always wear-fully there to protect his family of friends from all that can happen on Kingmakers grounds. Yet so many twists and turns that I have come to love in this series.

Nix had to fight so hard with her father to attend Kingmakers but being stubborn when she wants something I think her father knew he had to let her go. Nix was so lucky to befriend Sabrina on her way to the school. Nix had no idea her Dad was so repulsed by so many and doesn’t seem to have a clue as to why. Yet she is one strong willed young woman and she shows her worth and starts to win folks over slowly. Including one broody Aries. Aries and Mix are smoking Hawt together. It was a bit torturous seeing Aries fight his repulsion at first then see that flip flop into a deep caring and protectiveness for Nix.

This book brought all of series together and again with so much action that I will definitely need to hear these audiobooks again and relive it all in wonderment for the crafted writing skills of Sophie Lark.

The narrators were perfectly matched with the characters. I need to hear more Antonio Turner his voice was deliciously dark and tantalizing as the brooding Aries who had so much to hide from everyone, or so he thought. Then his family of friends surprise him in the end in helping him find his father. Avie Paige was refreshing as the unaware-full, tenacious Nix. Nix was a breath of fresh air for me. She carried no misconceptions of the other families because her upbringing hadn’t been one with others around. Hence her naivety upon her arrival at Kingmakers.

Then the background story by Connor Brown really helped pull the past into the present and helped me understand how connected everything is in the families of Kingmakers.

I really could go on and on with my praises on this series. Loved all the thrilling action, the budding relationships and the found family connections made at Kingmakers and I can’t wait to hear what Sophie has for us next.

Great audio.

Loved the book and the outrageous characters. Now that's the way to to do it! Bringing the Kingmakers series to its conclusion, revealing the full extent of the secrets, allowing the breadcrumbs dropped previously to be picked up and lead us to the conclusion, Sophie Lark has written a book which transports the reader to a foreign world, tells stories within the story and brings everyone's parts in the past and present, to a satisfying ending. Combine this with the thread of Nix and Ares' burgeoning attraction, and you have an absolute treat of a book. I couldn't put it down, and I don't think you will either. Bravo! 💖💖💖💖💖+
The audio lives up to the story with the narrators, Antonio Turner , Avie Paige and Connor Brown bring the book and characters to life. Very well done 💖💖💖💖💖

Utterly Brilliant!!

WOW!!! I thought nothing else could beat Dean's story, but this one did. The Spy was so good that it left me completely speechless. I have no idea where to start my review. Finally, the identity of The Spy is revealed, and what an astonishing surprise it was. That being said, I will not disclose who he is in the review. The story evoked a multitude of emotions in me; it's heart-wrenching, passionate, beautifully written, and absolutely enthralling. The storyline is rich, compelling, exciting, suspenseful, and action-packed, wrapped and drama, angst, steam, and surprising twists and turns. There are so many moving parts, and the way they connect is phenomenal. Sophie lark is a genius storyteller, immersing her audience with an intricate and finally tuned plot shrouded in mystery and romance. The little clues she leaves between the lines are perfect; it's like following breadcrumbs on a trail.

The romance portion of the story is great but not as developed as the previous installments. The forbidden romance element of the relationship really captured my attention. The chemistry was charged, and the connection was realistic. Although the dynamics between the Spy and Nix were captivating, my focus remained to undo the unraveling of the mysteries and answers to my long-awaited questions. Sophie Lark wrapped up everything perfectly, and I'm thoroughly satisfied with the ending.

Once again, the narration was marvelous. Antonio Turner, Avie Paige, and Connor Brown all did an outstanding job capturing and portraying the nuances of the characters' personalities, emotions, and intensity found in the pages. As always, they made the story even more engaging. The Spy was a terrific listen, a journey worth taking, and one I'll highly recommend.

At Last

We find out all our suspicions were right about who the spy is , but did we ? Aries has been told by his father to ruin Nix like her family did to his but things don’t work out that way and he finds out some truths and begins to fall for her.

The best of the series

This book was the culmination of everything from the first four books. We get the backstory on the Spy and find out who it actually is to be honest it was not hard to figure out. Nix is new coming to Kingsmakers not knowing everything her father has done no why she is so hated by everyone on campus. Nix has to stand d up for her self and she falls for Aries who is keeping secrets. I loved this series.

This soulful story is amazing and surprising.

Aries is hiding- from his friends, from his professors, from the world, and more importantly from Nix. He shouldn’t be so attracted to her and he knows it. But their chemistry is undeniable, and it springs from mutual respect and friendship, despite Aries’ subterfuge and lies.

This series is incredible, and Sophie Lark does an excellent job weaving the books together in The Spy. I don’t want to give any Spoilers, but this book is such a wonderful tale of how everything and everyone ties together in this world. Nix is written as strong, both physically and mentally. She has to fight for acceptance at Kingmakers, partly due to her father’s awful reputation, even for the underworld. Aries is smart, but growing weary of the lies and deceit, even if there is a noble goal at the end.

Whip-smart writing and excellent narration blend together for an outstanding series. Sophie Lark is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Highly recommend this whole series!!
