Summary

The first book in the brand new Captive of Shadows Series.

Love. Joy. Anticipation. 

That’s what your wedding day is supposed to be filled with...but not mine. 

I’ve never seen my future husband or even heard his voice. I only know that long ago, my father made a vow, and now, I have to fulfill it. They say Kane is a monster, with sharp clawed hands and hoofed feet. They say he’s cruel, violent, and likely to kill me before the end of my first night. 

They say...a lot of things.

So when my future husband arrives to collect his debt, I’m terrified of the fate awaiting me.

But not everything is as it seems.

Yes, he is cruel - but he’s also complicated, seductive, and holding secrets of his own. And each day that passes, something wild and passionate stirs between us. Every look, every whisper, and I find myself falling further into the shadows. Not that I expected any different.

After all, my new husband is the King of the Underworld....

Even better the 2nd time round

I absolutely loved reading this book and listening to it the second time around was even better. Izzy did an amazing job bringing the characters to life. Love the sorry and the tension. I can't wait for the second installment to come to audible.

Dark secrets

Briar's idea about being married off are naïve and romantic as nurtured by her father and sisters, now living in a different world she has to find her way to what she hoped would be her happy ever after but her soon to be husband is anything but interested or nice to her. We find out that everyone has secrets but we will have to continue listening to the next instalment to find out as we are just given glimpses... The narrator has a pleasant voice but the narration was far to quick for me, it didn't give me a chance to fully take in the story before we were onto the next chapter.

Promises, Duties, Love, and Hate

Promised to the Shadow King begins with a promise of Briar to wed the Shadow King, Kane. However, a promise of a daughter was not define to the deal made by Kane and Briar's father. Kane felt he was tricked and promised Briar's father that he will break her. Briar was tasked with a duty to kill Kane for wrong that was done to her father. The story shows the complexity of both Kane and Briar's characters. Both made promises yet in some ways, both are also looking for some hints or clues of they could trust each other despite their duties where one is to kill and the other to break the other spirit. The narrator, Isabella Tugman, gave Briar, innocence. She is a pawn used by her father, who felt he was wronged by Kane. She is duty-bound to find and learn as much as she can about Kane. The narrator gave Kane, a responsibilities of a leader, a king and since Kane is Death, he is always brooding and distrustful of mortals. Each characters is recognizable and has their own individualism. Although this book is short, there are just so much complexity of Briar and Kane's characters. There are times that I can't figure if Kane is willing to hurt Briar or that he cares for her while Briar has three months to find a window of opportunity to kill Kane and yet she feels something for him. It is a love and hate relationship of which will win out. There seems that there are more to the story than is being told. I definitely want to find out what happens next. I was given this audiobook by the author. I have decided voluntary to write an unbiased review. I was not compensated or influence in any way for writing this review.

Great read!

This was my first book by Bailey Dark, and it did not disappoint. The story is well written and just draws you into the drama of Kane and Briar. It's very interesting and different than anything I've read before. I can wait to see what happens next.
