Summary

Escaping hell is nothing compared to the mating fever. One just feels a lot better.

My name is Calamity. My past is dust, and my future is a life to fight to the death in hell. I never expected this to change, but then, three smoking-hot warriors - a primordial vampire, a fae prince, and a Sváva archangel - arrive in my wrecked world. They claim I'm the lost queen and their fated mate.

They come to return me to the great Atlantis to claim my stolen birthright, despite the fact that no one has ever escaped the underworld.

I don't trust anyone, but I can't deny the terrifying power awakening inside me...any more than I can deny my fatal attraction to the immortal males who fight with me.

Excerpt form the book:

"What's happening to me?" I breathed out as I shivered in want.

"You're going into heat," Elijah whispered, his eyes shining liquid blue, his face twisting with restraint. "The mating call is in my blood, too. My control is slipping."

His words didn't make sense, but it no longer mattered. Lust burned through me like wildfire. In its wake, nothing could survive, except my savage need for this archangel.

I must take him raw and hard until he couldn't take it, and then, I'd still have him, marking him as mine over and over. He'd beg and scream, but I still wouldn't stop.

Warning: This is a full-length reverse harem fantasy romance that features one hell of a hybrid woman warrior and her four powerful mates. It contains battles, explicit love scenes, curses, magic, dark fae, vampires, shifters, fallen angels, and a lot of demon assholes.

Queen of new beginnings

Meg Xuemei X is the best reverse harem author. I have read and listened to numerous books so I gave this series a try and loved it. Kalamity/Ayamna is extraordinary. Even as a slave she did whatever she wanted to and was always concerned about others. Her Draconian brother Sebastian always protected her while growing up, but failed to protect her from herself. Kalamity met her mates when she was fighting in the arena glamoured as a boy. This book is creative, exciting, and takes you on journey like never before. Her mates, Elijah, Max, Ash, and Merlin are in for a wild ride. I recommend this book. Gwendolyn Duyor is one of the best narrator's I have heard so far. kudos

An Original & Unique Idea

I enjoyed 'Of Shadows and Fire' it was a very original premise, but I felt like it was rushed in places, that maybe the story should have been spread over more than a 2 book series. I really liked that Calamity kicked butt in the arena! I can't wait to see what happens in the next book!

Slow start but great ending.

Takes a little while to get into the story but worth the detailed intro.

The Burn of the Underworld

Such a fun listen! A reverse harem with so many magical characters and the drama of a hidden queen making her way to finding out who she really is... what more can you ask for. The narration of this book was done beautifully. I am excited to see where this goes in the future.
