Summary

Vaughn Spencer.
They call him an angry god.
To me, he is nothing but a heartless prince.

His parents rule this town, its police, every citizen and boutique on Main Street.
All I own is a nice, juicy grudge against him for that time he almost killed me.
Between hooking up with a different girl every weekend, breaking hearts, noses, and rules, Vaughn also finds the time to bully little ol' me.
I fight back, tooth and nail, never expecting him to chase me across the ocean after we graduate high school.

But here he is, living with me in a dark, looming castle on the outskirts of London.
A fellow intern. A prodigal sculptor. A bloody genius.

They say this place is haunted, and it is.
Carlisle Castle hides two of our most awful secrets.

Vaughn thinks he can kill the ghosts of his past, but what he doesn’t know? It’s my heart he’s slaying.

This story was freakin fantastic...

...in a dark, sadistic and utterly disturbing way!

Boy, can LJ Shen write. Her stories are always entertaining but her words make her stories utterly breathtaking. Nothing seems to phase her, be it a difficult or daunting storyline or just A-holes, as is the case with the Spencer men.

It seems a while now since we endured the pleasures that Vicious bestowed upon us but he certainly created a new monster in his son, Vaughn. Right from the outset, Vaughn is cold, calculating and downright malicious towards his nemesis, Lenora Astalis.

Despite growing up together and being jointly moulded towards their destinies, they are worlds apart when it comes towards relationships. As children, Vaughn bullied Lenora, as adolescents, Lenora turned the table and started biting back. By the time they are at college together the gloves are off and what was once idle resentment towards each other explodes into something far more sinister.

The magic to this story is the secret that is revealed as you read on. Vaughn is has become the man he has for a reason and, for once, that reason is not his father. Despite her love/hate relationship with the idea of Vaughn, Lenora starts to unpeel his many, damaged layers and eventually manages to find the human being that she longed for beneath his abusive demeanour.

The story was dark but it was also sublime. Both characters were 100% endearing despite their cold and calculated ways. The essence of the story was heartbreaking but also rewarding. When you combine these many fascets you have a story that will reward you for your perseverance in a way that no other could.

Via Audible, this story was brought to life in such a way that made the story even more amazing. The narrators did a fantastic job and must be commended for the part they played in making what is a truly exceptional book.

This book is everything!

I have loved everything that I have read/listened to of L J Shen and Angry God is no exception, I can’t recommend this book enough.
The narrators bring these characters to life.
My heart was ripped out then slowly put back together with the perfect ending to a great series.

A swing and a miss...

I love this author. She is a talented story teller and I'm a big fan of her previous series. I was looking forward to this book and grabbed it as soon as it debuted on audible. It starts out fine....then supposedly turns dark....but it's so not realistic and honestly, just a total turn off. I felt like the story focused more on shock value than creating a shocking story. I figured out the "secret" in 1/2 a second. There were parts I did enjoy and although the previous narrators came back to reprise their roles from earlier books, the one character suddenly had a pronounced Southern accent which wasn't present in the original series. I just feel let down. I will continue to read this author, but I've been seeing all these "this book is beautiful and tragic" reviews that made me so excited. I was dumbfounded while reading it. I felt like I had to be honest.

Not for me

I tried I mean I really tried to like this book, but just unfortunately I couldn’t. I finished the book just because of Jacob Morgan voice.

Difficult listen, not in my comfort zone

LJ Shen is one of my favorite go to authors. I listened to this. Forced myself really, just to see where it would go. This story is one that is not easy to listen to. In the beginning there is a secret, and yes, the secret is exactly what you are afraid it is. Both H/h have deep seated issues (to say the least). If you can handle the perverse dance that leads to their "happily ever after", the story is developed and intricately flushed out. However, I find it hard to believe that every person in this story is a sociopath, but that is the impression I am left with. I will continue to listen or read Ms. Shen. This was the first time I found myself uncomfortable with one of her stories.

Such an amazing book and narration!

To say that this was a great book is a gross understatement. It was so beyond great that no word has yet been created to describe its greatness. It has absolutely ALL the feels and I felt them all. We also get Vaughn’s parents’- Vicious’ and Emilia’s POV, which was everything for us to fully understand Vaughn and how in the midst of darkness he was still good. And Vaughn. Oh sweetness. I am getting teary eyed again just thinking about him and Lenora. What an incredible journey they had. The narration for this book was sheer perfection. Oh how I missed Christian Rummel as Vicious!!! Jacob Morgan is incredible too- the emotion he brought to life. Savannah Peachwood and Kylie Stewart were also incredible. I loved everything! Just everything! LJ Shen is a goddess. Truly.

Decent Read

I've listened to all of the books in this series. I was really looking forward to Von's story and understanding what made him into such an angry kid. well done on that end, and excellent choice using Jacob Morgan! i wasnt as invested in the couples love story as the other books, Von's need for revenge is what kept me. This one left me bit disappointed in that end, similar to Trents book. not what I imagined for the characters but I'm not the writer so I enjoyed the journey overall. PS, thanks for bringing Vicous back for a cameo, I LOVE THAT GUY!!!

Amazing

I have loved this series and this book was an amazing ending to my beloved HotHoles.
I knew Vaughn’s story was going to be dark and heavy. But Leigh does an amazing job of bringing you through some really tough subjects. I absolutely loved getting to see Daddy Vicious in all his glory. This was an amazing story from start to finish. Loved it!

The best !!

I love all of L.J Shen's work. Vaughn's and Lenora story was everything I had hoped for and more. Jacob Morgan, Kylie Stewart, Savanna Peachwood and Christian Rummel all did a beautiful job. I pray there are more books in this series!!

Vaughn Spencer

Wow! I never know what to expect from LJ Shen’a books other than greatness. I always find myself trying to figure out what is going to happen before it gets to the point of it happening. I’m never disappointed. I love Vaughn Spenser and all his anger. The cast of narrators are awesome. I’m not sure how many more Fire this series but I’m ready for them and for the re-read starting with Vicious

Words cannot express how in love I am with this book!!!

Words cannot express how in love I am with this book. I was a fan of all her sinners of saints and now all saints high collection, but the this one just blew me away. Each one made be believe that it was my favorite, but this one stood out far from the rest. I completed it within 3 days, having a hard time putting it down. The detail, the lyrical words of two broken souls meant to be together, how the story came in full circle was just so exquisite.

My favorite detail about this book, was how much of a role Vicious and Emilia had. Like father like son. I really am going to have one hell of a book hang over after this one. I don’t think she’ll be able to top this one, but I said that before. I hope the series does not end just yet!
