Summary

An ancient dark power. Three species at war. A witch to unite them all.

Life in Devil's Gate is hell on earth. With no Regent to maintain order between the species, humans live in fear of what lurks in the shadows while the vampires, wolves, and fae that inhabit Devil's Gate battle for territory and power.

And 19-year-old Estelle Cotillard is caught up in the middle.

Harboring a dark secret, Estelle tries to stay out of trouble, but when vampire Gage Coreil starts showing up insisting she needs protection, she has to decide: stay in the shadows or become who she was always supposed to be.

Blood Lust is the first book in the Devil's Gate trilogy, a dark and sexy reverse harem paranormal series featuring a kick-ass heroine plus a brooding vampire, an alpha wolf, and a cunning faerie you won't have to choose between.

Fun, Steamy, PNR!!!

I enjoyed this audio book. The narrator did an excellent job. She was very easy to listen too and had a nice variation in her voices. I wish her male voices had a little more depth to them but that's just me being picky. ;-)

While I did enjoy this book I was left feeling like I wanted a little more. A little more character building. A little more story depth and story development. I am looking forward to the second book and hopeful that it will help round out what felt like it was missing from this book.

I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Wow!

I took one look at this cover and just knew I would love it. I was not wrong. The characters are amazing. The story is amazing. I am glad that I chose to go with my gut reaction about this book. So far, it has not lead me wrong. My best correlation I can give about this book is True Blood. Except the main character is a witch.

This series starts out with a bang! I love the dynamic that Grace presents. A Witch with untried powers; thrust into the center of a paranormal war over Devils Gate. I was quickly drawn into each character. They were well developed and easy to fall for.

The narration was fantastic! Sarah brought great depth and personality to each and every character. I had zero complaints.

I would rave about this book in the PNR world any day but the fact that it is Reverse Harem as well makes it even better! I cannot wait for the next book to come out!

Amazing Start

This was an amazing start to a new series! Celeste has been hiding who she really is all of her life so she could have a normal childhood at her sister’s request. After her sister’s death, Devil’s Gate is in chaos and she has no choice but to embrace who she is- the most powerful witch and regent. She must find a way to bring the fae, witches, wolves, and vampires together and to make peace in the city without getting herself killed in the process. I really enjoyed watching her figure out her magic and learning the backgrounds of each faction. I loved the relationship that she has with Gabe and the growing ones she has with Lucas and Laken. I can’t wait to see them grow even more and see where this series goes next!
Sarah did an amazing job with this narration! I love how she can bring each character to life with their own personalities and the accents that she uses.

Great start to the series

I tend to choose a book by its cover, and this one really caught my eye. Plus I really like paranormal romances. My choice was a good one!

First, can I say, I loved the narration, the accent definitely made it great to listen to. The story I found myself thinking of other books with certain phrases that were said but it did not distract me too much.
It was very steamy in places (maybe don't listen to it out loud with kids about) but that just adds to the greatness.
I can't believe how it ended. HUGE CLIFFHANGER!!

I am definitely going to have to listen to the next book in the series now.

Devils Gate!

Good first book for the series. Something felt like it was missing, though I can't put my finger on it. I think it might be that it felt like the story was forced in a few spots and didn't flow naturally? But I can't say for sure. Sarah, is not one of my favorite narrators, but she still did a fantastic job as usual. Am curious what happens in the next book!

Really enjoyed it, great characters, fab narrator

Noooooooooo you cannot leave it there!!!! Just as the story was getting to the really, really interesting bit....it stopped!!!! Ugh, I got caught up more and more as the book went on. The characters unfolded as did their destiny and place in the whole thing. Learning about the world they inhabit and how it works. I really enjoyed it and am now desperate to know what happens next and how they're going to sort it.

Sarah Puckett is just fabulous as the narrator, voices for each character that are distinct and easy to know who is who and a really great presentation of the book. Brilliant all-round.

My Thoughts on Blood Lust

This was a pretty epic start to a series. I loved the world building and the way the different species are tied in. I loved all the characters with their different personalities and yet I still have so many questions about them. I'm not even sure who I can trust, but in some ways I love them all even if I'm not sure I can trust them. The ending left things very messy and unresolved, but it has me hooked and desperate for the next book.

Audio on this was amazing. I love Sarah Puckett and happily listen to anything of hers I can. This performance does not disappoint.

3.5 stars!

Interesting beginning to a series! Witches, vampires, fae, and shifters all reside in Devil's Gate. Celeste/Estelle has some big shoes to fill and her role is critical. The "harem" aspect is just in its infancy in book one. I'm curious to see where Grace White takes this series. Sarah Puckett was a good narrator overall. There were a few words that had a bit of a southern twang and I don't know if that was part of the story or her personal accent. Because it was infrequent, it kind of threw me off and made me notice it more than I would have if it were consistent. However, that personal issue aside, she was a solid narrator.

What a great New series!

I was given this book for a honest review. This book has action, adventure, magic, vampires, werewolves, fairies and romance. It’s a must read!! I have to worn you it’s a cliffhanger, needless to say I can’t wait for the next book in the series. I enjoyed this book and think you will too.

Going to be a great series I’m sure

Great set up to what should be an awesome series!
We only really get to see Gage and Celeste interact together. Gage is a broody alpha male that doesn’t want to share but knows he has too. He and Celeste will have to learn to trust each other so they can change their world for the better.
I can’t wait to see what happens in the rest of the series. I think it’s going to be explosive! Lucas and Laken are hot as hell too but We just don’t see enough of them.
Narration was good. No complaints this way.
I do recommend this book.

Absolutely loved it!!!

This book has it all...witches, vampires, werewolves and fairies, and they are all at war with each other. It’s up to Celeste to keep the peace once more in Devil’s Gate. I’m not a huge PNR fan, but the Reverse Harem drew me in! Trust me, it doesn’t disappoint! Bloodlust ends on a cliffhanger, but it looks like book 2 is out already! I can’t wait to listen to it 😃

Sarah Puckett did a freaking fantastic job narrating! I love that it’s her voice bringing all of these characters to life!

Good Start, Will Continue Series

Celeste learns she is a “vessel” to unite the witches, vampires, wolves and fae, who are at the brink of war. Overall, the story is pretty good - it hits all the necessary wickets to be entertaining. The performance was just ok for me, and I’m not usually picky about narrators. The story line started off SLOW with some drama with her best friend that I found very unnecessary, but once the real plot got unfolded things were much better! I’m interested to see how the RH plays out. Gage, Lucas and Laken are intriguing and while things have started to play out with them it’s a pretty slow burn. Major cliffhanger at the end, so now I have to keep reading to see what happens! #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

it was an okay listen

I struggled with this story a little bit. the main character was a little hard for me to like but, once I got a bit past it this story was enjoyable.
