Summary

One exiled queen. Three sworn protectors. A river of blood and vengeance. 

Living in exile since birth, Violet Sinclaire should never have been born. She is a half-blood descendent of royalty, and her existence was forbidden by the ancient immortals long ago. Now, the royals want her dead. 

As the one true queen of the shadow world, Violet has sworn to take back her throne and avenge her mother’s murder at any cost. First, she must choose her warriors, for they are her shields in battle; the armor that will keep her safe from the royal assassins. Determined that a half-breed will never own the throne, the royals have called for her blood. Little do they know that Violet has blood cravings of her own, and she’s coming for them.

A Throne of Blood is a reverse-harem fantasy romance series, and Mistress Violet is a queen with whom to be reckoned. This series contains graphic scenes of BDSM as well as MF, MFM, and MM+. This audiobook might not be your cup of tea, but you have been warned. Enter at your own risk.

Absolutely beyond amazing!!

This book blew me away! The sex, the fantastic characters, the really hot sex, the well written and engaging storyline, oh did I mention all the incredible panty melting sexy?!?!

Once I started this book I could not put it down! The characters are very well written. In this book we begin to learn some back story to help give us better understanding of each character so we can better connect with them. The storyline was fast paced and kept me engaged the entire time. Yes there is a lot of sex in this book but it felt natural and fit into the storyline. It was also hot as hell!

Ashley Taylor did a fantastic job with narrating this book. Her ability to portray all the different characters really helped being this book to life. It was so easy to get lost in this story and just let her voice wash over me. I can't wait to hear the rest of this series!!

A quick 'hot' read

I think it's safe to say that I don't think I've ever 'tead' anything quite like this!

The story is interesting and looks like further additions to the series will be equally so.

AND I love the fact that Violet is the character who seems to take her pleasure from whomever she chooses. Sexual liberation abounds.

My Thoughts on The Queen's Protectors

This reverse harem story by new to me author Scarlet Snow definitely was an attention grabber and great series introduction. It is one of my new favorite genres so right off the bat I was interested after reading the blurb. But actually getting into the story I felt it was really well written. The plot was interesting and steadily paced. The characters were extremely entertaining and I loved the diversity amongst them.

This book is extremely steamy. Definitely a not suitable for work kind of book, or the kind that you'd feel a bit more comfortable reading when no one is around. But only because some of the scenes get very descriptive and in-depth. However I was a big fan. This narrator was also new to me and I've got to say I'm a huge fan. Ashley Taylor was able to pull off the different voices and tones for the different characters very well. And I feel like she did really good at distinguishing her male from female voices without it being over-the-top.

I wouldn't hesitate to read more from this author and hope there are more coming soon in this series. I also plan to listen to more by this narrator. She really impressed me and I would love to hear her in some other genres too.

Super hot Fantasy RH

This is a fast-paced story with a nice balance between seriously hot sexy times (BDSM, MM, MF, MFMM…), intriguing world-building, and a suspenseful plot. I was in a bit of reading slump lately and had just started and stopped two other audiobooks because I simply couldn’t get into anything. Until The Queen’s Protectors. I was instantly captivated!

Being drawn into the story like this was also due to Ashley Taylor’s narration. Her British accents and different voices are great. As are her timing and intonations. She sure got me hooked from the first minute on.

If you enjoy Fantasy Reverse Harem or are looking for something different (and seriously smoking hot), I'm sure you'll have fun with this audiobook!

Lucky Queen

Lots of hotness in this book. Violet has been thrust into the position of Queen after her mother has died. She is in danger and there is a mystery around what happened to her mother. Her protectors are there to not only keep her safe but to also "serve" her and her needs. This book is about shifters and vampires and their dark underworld. There is hot scenes that involve males with one female as well as male on male. It is steamy to say the least.

Ashley Taylor did a great job with all the characters in this book. She tells their story with different voices to make it more interesting. I received a code to listen and review. I enjoyed this first book in this series and would recommend it if you are interested in this genre and MFMM scenes.

3.5 Stars

Interesting storyline with a twist on the normal paranormal genre. It was good for the first half. The listener is drawn in into this unique adventure unfolding. But the second half, I could not get through fast enough. This was my first book by this Author. The narrator has a pleasant voice. 🎧 AudiobookObsession

A twist on a paranormal hidden Queen tale

The hidden princess story is one that's been told plenty of times, but having a princess destined to unite two paranormal species is a great twist on the genre. The characters are a little stiff when they're introduced at first, but they find a fun groove. The narration is great, it's easy to tell each character apart from the voice and the emotions are so well conveyed.

Hot and just wow. Fabulous narrator.

Ohhhhhhh ok. Do not listen to this one without headphones!!!! No. Seriously. I mean it. It is just, wow. Hot. Its my first m/m, m/m/f book and I just loved it. There is a story in amongst all the hotness, and it actually is rather good. The world that is built is great and I like the differences from the lore others use. I liked the characters and I really care what happens to them.

Being honest the English female voice grated on me to start with, I was worried I wouldn't be able to listen all the way through. But then the American voice kicked in and I was blown away. This was the same narrator. I've never heard such good changes between accents. Its my first time listening to Ashley Taylor, this performance is just brilliant and really brought the book to life. I will definitely listen to her again.

The Queen's Protectors

Oh My Wow! Amazing!
I'm not normally one to read paranormal type books but sometimes they catch my interest and this book is one of the best i've read. It ends a bit on a cliff hanger because nothing is quite resolved, but Violet has formed her - I wanna say army, but they are so much more than that. I am sure the next book will lead them into the battle that must take place for Violet to Reign as Queen. Violet is such a strong heroine, she rarely lets down her defenses, and she pushes forward through all of the pain and grief. This book is heavy on the sex scenes but still has a strong plot, it also has BDSM, MM, ana MFM Scenes.

The Audio by Ashley Taylor was amazing. There were many different accents, English, Irish/Scottish, New York(ish), Midwestern, but they were all really well done, and none sounded overly played or fake. A very strong audio performance.

Violet is a half shifter half vampire. Her existence is forbidden. No one in their supernatural world was allowed to cross breeds. But she is more than that. She is Daughter to a King, and now that her father has been killed she is the New Queen of the shadow world. The books starts off with her mother being murdered. Until this point Violet did not know who she truly was, she only knows that her existence must be hidden. She swears to avenge her mother's murder and sets off to find out who had her killed. Along the way Violet must find her protectors as they will be her shield and armour in battle.

Hot protectors

Violet is a strong woman that has to take over her mother's role when her mother is killed. Violet has been protected and kept hidden for her entire life. With her lover and protector, Ronan, Violet is determined to avenge her mother and take her leadership role. Two more protectors will join them in this magical journey. I like how each of these men have their own unique personalities but their main goal is to protect Violet. They will have very hot sex scenes. I like how Violet begins to see these men as more than just her bodyguards.e This story will deal with their relationships and Violet's quest to become queen. The narrator does a good job of portraying these characters personalities. I received this Audible book and have written an honest review. The series will continue with more of Violet's journey.

SUPER HOT reverse harem! #YesPlease 🔥🔥🔥

Holy hot reverse harem, Batman! This audiobook was scorching hot. I needed a cold drink during and after, it was that good. I highly suggest earbuds for this listen unless your brave like that in which case, you go girl! Or guy lol. This story was hot, exciting...in several ways, and so well done. I enjoyed the story and it hooked me from the start. I loved Queen Violet and the strength she had. Her protectors Elliot, Ronan, and Kaleo were beyond swoon worthy. Their protectiveness and devotion to Queen Violet left me in a constant puddle of swoon. And sweet Jesus this story is HAWT! Their chemistry and connection sizzled and popped the whole time. This audiobook had everything: MM, MMF, MMMF, and MF. Seriously, this. Was. Hot!

Narration was performed by Ashley Taylor and she did an amazing job. Each character was distinct, the flow was just right, and her voice was lovely. I need more of her narrations in my audio-life. Really looking forward to the next book in the series. 5 Stars.

Great Reverse-harem fantasy romance!

This is the first book in A Throne of Blood Series. This is a very steamy erotic reverse-harem fantasy romance! Earbuds required! Queen Violet's quest is captivating, suspenseful, and hot! The story is well written, with multiple POVs from Violet and her protectors, Ronan, Kaleo and Elliot. Violet is a strong and dominant woman. The world building is well developed, and interesting. The storyline has really steamy scenes MF, MMF, MMMF, and MM. I would love to listen to the next book in the Series to know what happens next. Ashley Taylor did an amazing and outstanding job with the narration. All characters were easy to distinguish. The quality audio is perfect. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily written this review.

Hot and steamy story, great narration

I enjoyed this hot and steamy story very much. This audiobook was a perfect escape from everyday live's problems I needed. The story grabbed my attention from the beginning to the end and I was left wanting more. Narrator did an amazing job, giving voices to Queen Violet and her 3 very different in personality and attitude male protectors. This was my first book narrated by Ashley Taylor, I loved her voice and will be looking for other books she narrated. I can't wait for the next story a Throne of Blood series.

It was me, not the book

This book was a bit outside what I normally read in one small way, the strong female lead is a domme. I truly didn't think it would have as much impact on my enjoyment as it did. Truthfully it wasn't a huge shift from other books I've read but there was something about the power dynamic that I've tried and tried to put my finger on that just strikes a discordant note with me. I still enjoyed the book and loved the narration. I was skeptical that there were no male narrators of an MMFM book but it was done beautifully! Distinct voices and multiple accents. Beautiful! It would have been 5 stars except for that *something* I can't get my head around, overall, a great start to a series!

1st time I am ok with a clifhanger

The clifhanger was just perfect as it hints for what's to come but it won't leave you cussing the author.

author Scarlett Snow wrote a Queen's discovery of her heritage on this Mega Steamy story Beware headphones // earphones are a must!!

also a HUGE commandment to our narrator she outdid herself playing several characters!! how she acomplisshed making each unique is mind blowing.

there's light BDSM themes and mentions of playrooms, this is a MMMF so be ready for that adventure. I will mention this was more sexy times than story however it was right on the edge before getting over played so We get enough story to keeps ready for book 2 and hotness to make you blush.
