Summary

The Kingdom of Askara has been torn apart by conflict for centuries, where humans exist as subservient beings to their werewolf masters. Legend says it will only be able to heal itself when an Alpha King and a pure omega are mated and crowned together, but a pure omega hasn't been born in over a thousand years. Luca is an Alpha-heir eagerly awaiting the choosing ceremony on his 25th birthday and the gifts granted by whichever omega he mates. His small pack is destitute due to the decisions of its ruling council, but being only an Alpha-heir, he has no authority to challenge them. Not until now - this moment he has waited a long time for. Kit grew up as a street-rat, an unlicensed human who would never be more than a slave for whichever master owns him. Then one day he came across a young Alpha-heir, attacked and dying of poison, and found out their fates were suddenly entwined. Luca needs to take over his pack and save his people. He cannot afford to be distracted. But when he meets Kit, he develops abilities indicating he is not just a pack Alpha, but the King his world has needed for a thousand years. Is Kit really the cause of Luca's newfound power, the true mate he needs? How is it possible when the young man isn't even a werewolf, and as merely a human, a mating is not only forbidden, but for Kit, a sentence of death?

Such a great to listen to

If you could sum up The Alpha King in three words, what would they be?

I really enjoyed listening to this book, Narrared by Joel Leslie( who has such a awesome voice and he really gets the characters voices.
The Alpha King is about Luca and Kit, Kit is a human omega, Luca is the alpha, when they meet up by chance after seven years(of a brief meeting ) they know they are mates, but didn't know that Luca and Kit power together will be so strong.
Luca becomes Alpha King and Kit is a pure omega, their bond is so strong that they can lead humans and wolves to live side by side. I love shifters books. This drew me in so much that I listen with joy. Congratulations Victoria Sue and Joel Leslie for a very enjoyable book

Who was your favorite character and why?

Both Luca and Kit Luca made many foolish mistakes. But they grew together

What about Joel Leslie’s performance did you like?

Joel Lesie, he really gave the book depth, and drew me into the book

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Like I've said really enjoyable book

Mixed feelings

I have mixed feelings about this book, generally I liked the story, the characters were engaging, but, I found myself talking to myself while listening. Getting annoyed with the way things progressed when common communication could have saved a lot of the problems this couple had.
Having said that I also found myself listening longer than I really had the time for just to see what happened next.
The narration of this book is masterfully carried out with Joel Leslie's trade mark splendour. Every single voice and accent easy to separate. I'm glad I bought the audio just to hear his narrative.

Enjoyable shifter story

My first MPreg story and my first book by Victoria Sue. 
The world building is excellent. In the Kingdom of Askara Werewolf's rule and take humans as servants or slaves beaten and controlled in all aspects of life. Luca is betrayed by his brother and left for dead. He is rescued by Kit, at the detriment to himself. Kit tells him that he will be the Alpha King. Years later they meet again and sparks fly. I've never really been tempted by MPreg stories but I like the way this one is done.

There is so much here, betrayal, politics, espionage, fated mates, jealousy, love, misunderstanding, kindness and passion. An enjoyable shifter fantasy that has a fairy tale qualities. I quite enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to the next book.

Joel Leslie the ultimate showman brings all these aspects alive. Listening to him being an elder statesman one minute and a young girl next is magical. Perfect intonation swept me along with the story, many times I had to just stop what I was doing and listen spellbound. Definitely listening to this story again.

I was given a copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

Enjoyable audio

This was a highly enjoyable narration of an entertaining story. The reselling was superb and offered highly differentiated characters which led to great world building and therefore an engaging listen.

Simply brilliant

Where does The Alpha King rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

How does this book rank? Well here is my current decision making tree when buying audiobooks: Is it narrated by Joel Leslie? If yes BUY if no DON'T Buy.
He has fast become my favourite narrator and I already loved this story so win win!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Alpha King?

I can only have one?? *pouts* this is such a complete story, way more than a romance, and makes me laugh in many places. I think the bit near the start where Luca breaks ranks to protect Kit is fab.

Which character – as performed by Joel Leslie – was your favourite?

Now this is impossible, Joel, possibly more than any other narrator actually breaths life into each character. He doesn't simply read a book he lives it, each character has their own voice not just the main ones. I think he does a fantastic job with Luca's sisters, especially the younger one which can't be easy for a man

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I'm rubbish at these - its why I'm a reader not a writer!
How about "An unexpected mate gives him a kingdom and so much more!"

Any additional comments?

I know this is an Mpreg story which can put some off but if you are going to try one for the first time this is fab :-)

The best MPREG book I've read so far!

This is a great Alpha/Omega book. The characters and the landscape are described in such detail that you can picture it unfolding right before your eyes.

Kit, a human slave has seen it written in the stars that his mate is a powerful Alpha, however unlikely that may be. Luca, the alpha in question is ready for his choosing ceremony so he can take a mate when he finds the young man who saved his life all those years ago.

Realizing that Kit is his mate and a human leaves Luca reeling. Luca must scramble to understand what is going on and keep Kit safe at all cost. Their world is in turmoil and it is up to the new Alpha King and his human Omega mate to make it a better place for all of them.

The story was amazing. The narration was stellar. Joel Leslie made me feel every emotion the characters were feeling. Every time Luca did something stupid I wanted to punch something. When Kit was devastated, I wanted to cry for him. I haven't come across too many audiobooks that have made me feel this much.

If you enjoy Alpha/Omega or MPREG stories you can't go wrong with this one.

Such a great start to a series!!

What does Joel Leslie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joel Leslie did a great job with all of the characters in the book! He made the mother's voice so perfectly grating that I disliked her immediately. Kit was so sweet and that came across in the voice that Joel Leslie was able to make for him.

Any additional comments?

Kit and Luca have had to deal with so much pain in their lives. Kit knew that Luca was meant to be his, but had to give him up because it wasn't time for him and Luca to be together at that time. Kit had to go back to a life of constant pain and struggle. When Luca and Kit finally meet the connection is almost instant! The power that Luca gains is enough to show that he is the Alpha King that is needed to unite the other nations. There are so many issues that come up, and they put a strain on Kit and Lucas' relationship. Most of it lack of communication on both their parts, but I am so glad that they are able work through them and love each other.

Pleasant Surprise 😕😐😃😆😁

When I first received this book I didn't realize it was a Mpreg story which are not my favorite. BUT mid-way through I decided I wasn't getting any sleep because I had to finish it. Every time I thought "oh predictable" I was given a curve ball. The only con was it was a slow starter. It didn't win me over until 1/4 through. But then it had me till the end. As for smexy time... there were some scenes but they won't fog your glasses. The narrator was good. Sometimes I find him overdramatic but it fit with this story. If Mpreg is your thing this is a good listen. If it's not your thing give it a try I was pleasantly surprised. Want to try another shifter story with the humans on top and a little more kink try Axel's Pup.

I love the whole thing!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Alpha King to be better than the print version?

The audio just made the book even better. Joel Leslie just had a way of making a book so much better without taking away from how the author writes the book. He has the characters come alive and I love every minute of it.

What about Joel Leslie’s performance did you like?

I love everything but I had one part that I actually had yo stop.listening for a little bit. He just made that part of the story so real that I was feeling the embarrassment and the hurt and all I wanted to do so tell at the characters to talk to each other. I love it in the book but I Joel Leslie's performance made it have more feeling then just reading it.

Any additional comments?

I love Victoria Sue for her amazing book and for Joel Leslie for just bring the story to life.

Good MPreg Story

Any additional comments?

I have never read any books by this author before. It was interesting to see what style of writing this contained. I have to say it is a light style. I didn't like the whole no communication/miscommunication issue that occurs. Also the whole deal with the crisis at the end of the story is a little too easy to see coming.

Still I do enjoy lighter stories on occasion and the overall story wasn't bad at all. I think it is a book that most will either really like or really hate. There seems to be little compromise on that. I thought the story was a fun read that will agree with people looking for a lighter, "sweet" romance. I am interested in where the author will go with the series.

The narrator was really good. He has always done a good job with bringing life to the story and voice to the characters. He is an enjoyable listen.

Suddenly King.

This is a story about a man who looks at the world, sees the injustice in it, and wants to do whatever he can to change it. When he is suddenly made king, it seems like everything can be made to work out.

Except not everything is that simple.
