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.

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.

Great Introduction to the Series

As to be expected with a new series, there is a good amount of world building and introduction to the characters. I really liked that the 'harem' involves multiple species, I think it is consistent with the idea that Celest to bring all the species together to restore balance in Devil's gate. Besides Gabe, we only really meet the other men in the book but we don't really get to know them that well. It almost felt like this book focused more on Gabe, but we will get more of the other men in the harem in future books. I am excited to see where this author takes Celest and this group of alpha men and how they plan to restore balance with Celest's untamed powers.

Sarah Puckett is easily one of my favorite narrators; she did a fabulous job on this performance as expected. She does a great job differentiating character voices and keeping them consistent. Another great listen!

Definately one to get your teeth into

A great start to the Devils Gate Series.
I haven’t heard anything from Grace White before but I’m pleased I have now..
To be honest I wasn’t going to listen to this one as the cover had me thinking it would be just another hot and steamy vampire story .. Oh how wrong was I! After reading a friends comment about the book I decided to give it a go (as I respect her audiobook judgement)
Book 1 starts us in with a strong unique story, With equally strong characters. I really wasn’t ready for it to end! I was definately left a little gob smacked and ready for the next!
Sarah Puckett narrates beautifully, her differentiation between the characters is Clear and her voice very easy on the ear.

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.

Can one witch save them all

Was gifted this audible book for a fair and honest review from Audiobook Obsession. This is my first review for this author Grace White, and I hope it’s not my last. I would also like to mention the narrator for this story Sarah Puckett, she did an excellent job with the many colorful characters.
The storyline is an interesting one, young Witch Celeste Lafore who’s powers were bound in childhood by her family, only unbounded when problems arise between the other species. Vampire, werewolf, fae, and human are all in the midst of a battle in Devils Gate that it seems only the Regent of all the species can end, they are certain that Celeste is the one. There however seems to be other issues arising Celeste is attracted to the Gage a vampire, Lucas a faerie, also Laken a werewolf.
The story however comes to a halt with the knowledge that her vampire has been captured by another vampire vying for control.
Must await the next release.

This is so going to be a great series

This is a different side of a paranormal romance. The heart was meant for one true love, but when the heart is pulled in three different way the story gets even better. I love the uniqueness of the story line, and the characters had there own strong personality. Beautifully written and Sara Puckett did a superb job with the narration.

I loved it!

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!

Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance - Amazing

Blood Lust by Grace White is a Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance. I listened to this book on audio narrated by Sarah Puckett. Sarah did an amazing job narrating. This is the first book of Grace White's that I have read and look forward to reading more of her books in the future. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves Romance, Paranormal, or Reverse Harem books.

A Surprise Listen! 👍🏻😊

This book is a Surprise Listen in a very good way. Sarah’s inflections and southern accent in this narration add depth and substance to the atmosphere of this read. The story is not your usual Reverse Harem storyline. It’s tastefully and skillfully done and woven into a romantic First Blood-esque kind of way. The Cover Art is beautifully done and not tacky. I’d recommend this read/listen to anyone over 18yrs of age.

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.

Yummy Alpha Men

To be honest I was worried I wouldn't like the heroine at first, she seemed lost and mean to her only friend. But that didn't last long thank goodness, she changed her attitude and faced her new life. I really liked the strength and backbone she showed. I really liked all the men and unlike most reverse harems these alphas don't want to share. Mmmmm, yummy alphas. Along with the great steam factor this book also had mystery and intrigue. I fell in love with the characters and am rooting for them. I don't know how I will handle the wait until the next book in this trilogy!
The narrator did a fantastic job giving everyone distinctive voices, especially hot deep voices for the guys. She made it feel as if it was all being played out in front of me. Amazing job!

A Magical PNR Cosmos!

Blood Lust the first book in the Devil's Gate Series introduces you to this new paranormal world with well detailed world building descriptions & settings. The synopsis is highly intriguing and the cover is alluring. Estelle Cotillard (Celeste) last of the La Fleur witches (The Vessel) is to unite the species living in Devil's Gate. A dark world with magical & mystical beings, mystery & intrigue encircle the plot twist. Secrets revealed, trials to come, and who is friend or foe. With unanswered questions will Celeste be able to fulfill her destiny set out for her? I loved Celeste character as she is astute, complex, driven & resilient with untapped magical power. The male character's are dark, mysterious and sexy. A slow burn that keeps you craving more.

Narrator Sarah Puckett did a fabulous performance. I was able to easily distinguish between the characters. Every character is spoken with depth and eloquence. The narator brings to light the narrative & its character's.

With so many unanswered questions I'm looking forward to listening to the next novel in this witchy reverse harem paranormal romance series.
