Summary

For years, Reese has hidden away in his home, refusing to venture out where he might have to face what reminds him of all that he's lost. When Ashton, a human thief, breaks into his home one night, he doesn't have a choice but to face the harsh truths of the world he's turned his back on. He knows he supports the society monsters of myth and lore built upon the backs of humans through his silence, but the new leaders don't tolerate sympathizers. 

If a werewolf can't act against the status quo without facing severe consequences, a human with Ashton's cunning and experience circumventing supernatural predators certainly can't risk drawing their attention. Their chance encounter leaves them both shaken and questioning whether they are living life as they were intended...or if surviving is really living at all. 

Now that supernatural beings have seized control of the world, life has become a struggle for the humans who once held power. Witches, vampires, and werewolves determine the fate of every single human, but their moral compasses have long since been shattered. Rebels, free humans, and slaves all share dreams of hope, mercy, love, and more. But with their fate so uncertain, survival isn't enough...and they may have to sacrifice what is nearest and dearest to them if they want to change their lives. 

Bought, Ravel, and Recoil feature different characters whose lives begin to come together in Owned and Temper. This dystopian series explores different aspects of the world, from utter darkness to the shining lights waiting to emerge. Because of this, the books range from dark erotica to romance to horror to action(ish) to bits of other things in between.

Contrasts

After the darkness of Bought, I didn't expect the tenderness of Ravel and it's HFN ending. Though I know there may be angst to come later in the series, the dystopian background, while still present, isn't as much of a focus as the development of their relationship is.

Jack Noble nailed the change from the slow, dark tones of Bought to the lighter ones needed for Ravel. In particular, I thought he portrayed the spirit of Ashton, who is down but not beaten, extremely well.

Brilliant story but to short!!!!

Really enjoyed listening to this story about Reese a werewolf who doesn’t agree with the take over, and Ashton a human who breaks into arrears home to steal something to help his best friend, this was a sweet if not nice backstory in this series. You can’t help but love Reese and want to slap Ash for being so stupid!!!!

Jack’s narration is better in this one then the last one. Although he still has a habit of pronouncing each word slowly I found that If you listen to it on 1.25x speed it is a lot better and really got me into this story, off to book 3 now!! Really getting addicted to this series

Great story

I really enjoyed the story line in book 2, it was a much lighter one than book1 with some humour injected in.
Reese keeps to himself until Ashton breaks into his world and he starts to feel something for him.
I am still unsure of the narrator, he could read it so much better there seems to be no inflection to the words he says..

wow!

Reese was such a surprising character ( a pleasant surprise). He’s definitely a new favorite and I really enjoyed the chemistry and the dynamic between him and Ashton. This series has me hooked. The world is so dark and interesting.
Also, the narrator's accent is brilliant!

Loved it so much ♡

Ashton is a human in a world where humans are considered less than objects or sex toys for the pleasure of the other supernatural creatures. Needing to help his best friend, Leo, who is really sick, he decided to enter the home of a werewolf to stole something to sell for some money for the cures of his friend. But the plan wasn't for sure to get caught by the werewolf himself, Reese. Fortunately for Ash, Reese isn't like the other creatures, he's willing to help Ashton and his friend. But for the human is still too hard to believe that the supernatural creature won't end up killing them, or worse, transforming them in his personal slaves. Because of these thoughts that keep tormenting Ash, he will think about breaking the trust Reese is giving him. Reese seems like "one of a kind" for his species, because the way he's immediately ready to help the humans, an I can't wait to see how his character will develop in the next books. And Ashton is really a brave guy, ready to do anything to help his friend, the kind of character you can't not love. Same as with Reese, I can't wait to know what the future holds for him ♡

Finding desire in the arms of the enemy

A beautiful story of a werewolf and a human coming together in the midst of disaster. In the end I want more. I want to know they'll be okay.
Narrator Jack Noble does a wonderful job.

He opened a window into my....

This book is very different from the first book in the series. It features Ashton (a human) who was mentioned in the first book and Reese (a werewolf) whose house Ash breaks into. Ash's friend Leo is sick and Ash had planned to steal things when he broke into Reese's house to help his friend. Being human neither he nor Leo have rights as supernatural creatures rule their society and humans are outcasts and live in poverty or as pets to supernatural beings. Reese surprises Ash with his attitude toward humans but especially his leniency and compassion towards Ash after he catches him in the midst of breaking into his house. I really enjoyed this book so much. There was still the harsh reality of this new world that was portrayed in the first book but also hope and the ability to show trust and forgiveness in the face of betrayal. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to seeing where this series goes from here. I also think Jack Noble did a fantastic job narrating this audiobook.

I won this audiobook but this is my honest review.

Good but not great.

My problem was with the narration, which sounded like he WAS READING in a barrel.

Absolutely Marvelous Series, Jack Noble is Perfect

I'm so very glad to have discovered this series! The premise of the story is unique, creative, and addicting. I absolutely refuse to read the blurbs for the books ahead, but I know something amazing is coming... Just the way R. Phoenix is setting up the characters, I can't wait till they meet up and clash!

Also, I really have to give huge props to Jack Noble. His gorgeous accent is incredibly appealing, and the smooth, steady pace of his narration is perfect for this story.

If you're a fan of paranormal stories, with a dark, erotic edge, then Fate of the Fallen is a must!


I was given this audiobook by the author for the purpose of my honest review.

I love this series

Hearing is as good as reading these books. So much variety of voices and characters you can lose yourself in this world the author has built.
