Publisher's Summary

"Riveting, passionate, and full of high stakes danger." —Tamora Pierce, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"This story of political intrigue, romance, and dark fantasy is elevated by Brentan's steadfast narration."- AudioFile Magazine

Emily Thiede's exciting fantasy debut, This Vicious Grace, will keep listeners riveted until the devastating conclusion and leave them primed for more!

Three weddings. Three funerals. Alessa’s gift from the gods is supposed to magnify a partner’s magic, not kill every suitor she touches.

Now, with only weeks left until a hungry swarm of demons devours everything on her island home, Alessa is running out of time to find a partner and stop the invasion. When a powerful priest convinces the faithful that killing Alessa is the island’s only hope, her own soldiers try to assassinate her.

Desperate to survive, Alessa hires Dante, a cynical outcast marked as a killer, to become her personal bodyguard. But as rebellion explodes outside the gates, Dante’s dark secrets may be the biggest betrayal. He holds the key to her survival and her heart, but is he the one person who can help her master her gift or destroy her once and for all?

"Remixing all the best parts of a dark fantasy and a romantic comedy, This Vicious Grace is a wonderfully fun time from start to finish, with lush, complex worldbuilding, intensely relatable characters, and relationships that are easy to root for." —Hannah Whitten, New York Times bestselling author of For The Wolf

One of my Favorite YA Books of the Year

The narration was wonderful. I thought the story was fantastic. I loved the banter, the tension and the oh so slow burn romance. The magic was really interesting as was the world. Cannot wait for the next book. There has to be one right?!

This Book!!

I was pleasantly surprised by this story.

Alessa’s growth i the story was believable and well written. The side characters had just enough background to care about and make them interesting.

And Dante. Oh Dante. I can’t wait for the next book to learn more about him.

The voice actors are well suited to the book, and it was easy to listen to. I enjoyed it very much.

Great great book

So, it is currently 3AM and i have a toddler and a baby to feed in about 2 hours... this book was worth it. I loved the magic, the romance, the writing was captivating and i never felt like i wanted to skip a chapter. Anyway, can't wait for the next. I am hoping the story is not stretched into too many books (I think more than 3 books of any story is way too many). The characters are not overly dumb, petty or jerks. They are the exact amount to make them believable. Disappointed this is the only book on here from the author. <3

Good!

1🌶
Solid upper YA book. loved the Italian roots and magic system. im a sucker for a bodyguard trope as well and I enjoyed this one! love the romance and their build up. my only complaint is the length of the book with what we are given. I feel like it dragged alot and it either needed added action, or simply to be shorter. overall very good!
