Publisher's Summary

Would YOU love a monster girl? 

Andrew hunts monsters as a member of the Non-Human Investigative Corps, and he's very good at his job. Unfortunately, the skills he honed to keep the peace aren't much use in the cutthroat world of city politics, and a recent civil ruling is forcing the integration of the once exclusively human NHIC!

Velise is a beautiful arachne noble sent to the human-ruled city of Daytau as part of a diplomatic boondoggle to prove her political skills to her matriarch. A chance encounter with Andrew leaves her wanting to know more, and the integration gives her an opportunity both to sate her curiosity and advance her ambitions.

Yet the barroom brawl Andrew diffused for her sake was no accident, and city hall would love nothing more than to end his career. Forced by circumstance both to protect and rely on a monster, Andrew comes to an uncomfortable realization.

Velise might just be everything he ever wanted in a woman....

Next level book

Ok, so I have loved everything cebellius has written. I’ve bought everything he has from audible. But Velise? This book is next level. It is absurdly good, and easily top 5 books I have ever read in my life. Well done sir.

Police procedural meets Monster Girl Romance

Another fun one from Cebelius. Can a cop at the height of his career in an urban fantasy city love an ambitious fem fatale who happens to be a spider? Eventually, and the road there takes us through a darn good cop show. Several explicit scenes, and like all of Cebelius’ work there’s a solid story around them. Worth your time.

Good Story

The power couple of Chris and Jessica nailed another story. Worth the credit if you have. The overall story is a mash up of film noir detective story in a post post apocalypse fantasy land with a touch of cyberpunk.
Word of warning: if you don't enjoy monster girl stories that have bedroom scenes move along. It is a bit of slow burn but it does end up there.

Noir + Monstergirl x Romance Equals...

A really enjoyable story. With Christopher Boucher and Jessica Threet as narrators, it becomes an amazing experience.

Two mature protagonists in a well fleshed out urban fantasy is rare. One character is cynical, organized, and respected, while the other is cunning, diplomatic and ambitious. The transition of these dynamic character merely going from working with each other to working toward each other is fun, in more ways than one.

All around, a great audiobook that deserves to be on the list of everyone who's a fan of fantasy or romance.

great monster girl romance

The story was awesome and the development of the two learning about each other was great.if you are looking for sex everywhere with story as an after thought then keep going. if you want two people of different cultures falling in love and not fading to black then this is your gem.

Didn’t expect this

Narrators shift to fit the chapters/characters third person perspective.

Actual character arcs for a sexy novel?

An adorable romance plot?

I like Cebelius’ previous works but this still surprised me how much I liked this.

Wow! Hard to put down.

Cebellius gets better and better, and that's having already started giving earlier books 5 stars. even if you weren't into fantasy, furries, monsters, and erotica, it is just darned good writing. Detective action book with great characters. Good dialogue from great narrator's. Fun story line. The slow build of relationships and erotic parts fit great in the story not like some bit just thrown in but really works in the story and they are super sexy.

Another Grand Slam Home Run for Cebelius

Pithy, smart, cute, romantic whatever you want to call it, this was another outstanding production from Cebelius and crew. the characters were relatable. It was easy for the minds eye to set up and follow the spoken word. it has a great flow and some nice plot twists that keeps you guess without causing a headache. I would absolutely recommend this.

So good

it started of a bit slow and it got me worried. I also didn't think I would like Velise herself but damn how wrong I was. she has completely captured my heart. I wish it was longer.


Christopher and Jessica is amazing as always. Narration in 11/10

Slow burn

Slow burn romance as the couple struggle to overcome their differences and deal with the dire circumstances they find themselves in. Of course those differences are greater than normal seeing the race of the FMC.

Magnificent

The author has came up with a winner in my opinion. The story is masterly done. It is a story that is told many times over but the author has made it in his style with Monster Girls. I hope he continues the story as I enjoyed this version. I consider this a breath of fresh air for the story. It flows so well and I never lost interest in the story as it came to an end logically.
The narrators were fantastic in bringing the characters to life. Hopefully they will continue in the next book.
WELL done! 5*****

Pleasantly surprised waiting for Book 2

I went into this book expecting cringe like a lot of the other books that aim at a similar genre but instead I got a well-rounded story with a lot of interesting character development with a somewhat believable world I would have liked to see more worldbuilding and a bit more action in terms of fight scenes but all in all I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of listening to this book. I eagerly await Book 2
