Summary

Tobias Kaya doesn't care about The Savior. He doesn't care that She's the ruler of the realm or that She purified the land, and he certainly doesn't care that She's of age to be married. But when competing for Her hand proves to be his last chance to save his family, he's forced to make The Savior his priority.

Now Tobias is thrown into the Sovereign's Tournament with nineteen other men, and each of them is fighting - and killing - for the chance to rule at The Savior's side. Instantly, his world is plagued with violence, treachery, and manipulation, revealing the hidden ugliness of his proud realm. And when his circumstances seem especially dire, he stumbles into an unexpected romance, one that opens him up to unimaginable dangers and darkness.

Trigger warnings: this book contains graphic violence, foul language, and sexual situations.

Fantastic!!!

5 stars in every category! The story itself is great and the telling by nick Denton was an absolute blast! Nick does a great job at making you believe there are many different characters before you and keeps the story telling interesting and never boring! Fantastic! Not once was I bored by the writing or by the audio! Highly recommend for people who love adult fantasy!

I love sufferation

I'm glad I picked up this book. It's filled with so much angst and dread, at every turn the hardships pile on, even when you think "oh! it can’t POSSIBLY get any worse for them", it just DOES. In a completely rational way it just continuously throws you for a loop, it gives you clues that become blatant when you actually get to the plot twists... it just does everything right. The characters are fully fleshed, the plot is engrossing and plausible and the scenes and sets are well placed and described. It's just marvellous. But of course, I’d expect nothing less from Jenna. She’s been a great help with writing for my friends and I. Even her on-the-spot examples from her videos sound wonderful. If you haven't already, READ THIS BOOK!!!!!

Story Didn't Have To Be This Long

This is one of those stories in which I found myself sighing in exasperation, because the lead female character has an obvious secret--and if she had revealed it earlier on in the book, a lot of people would not have suffered and/or died. She doesn't reveal the secret until the very end, and her reasoning for being secretive is pretty weak, when compared to the loses that result from the secret.

The reader can figure out her secret pretty early in the book, which makes the lead male character look a little dim witted, since he somehow keeps missing all the clues.

I think I'd have a more positive impression, had the book been shorter. It was one thing to be annoyed by the lengthy reveal, but it was definitely exacerbated by the multiple teaser scenes. She'd announce that she has a secret, he'd, say, "what is it?" But instead of revealing it, she'd waver about how she was worried about his reaction... then they'd get distracted, and I'd yell, "AW, COME ON! NOT AGAIN! JUST TELL HIM YOUR DAMN SECRET!"

The story isn't bad, I just felt that it dragged on further than it needed to.

Don't waste your credit/money

The story is long winded and pointless. There is no reason for ANY of the things that happen and they are described in such detail it was painful. I bout this because of the 4.8 rating but I don't know how it got that. The tasks were pointless and the characters were vapid. I kept thinking it would get better but it never did. There's 20 hours of my life I won't get back. Such a waste.

Solid start

I think the narrator suited very well for this story. I liked it. I can see where insperations have come from :) But there where conversations and dialogs, I felt could have been a lot better and some choices were odd. Overall a complete firts part of a story.

This book was an EXPERIENCE

I have such a hard time listening to audiobooks because so often the voices drive me bananas, but the narrator choice for TSC is perfection. Honestly, Nick could read a grocery list and I would listen, but it’s a million times better because he’s telling a story that I love with my whole heart. I’ve already read The Savior’s Champion several times, so I went into the audiobook with high expectations. It was a pleasant surprise that it felt like an entirely fresh story in audiobook form. Nick is an A+ narrator and I loved absolutely everything he brought to it. The voices, the emotion, the skill! It just all coalesced into a truly enjoyable time for me. Of course as important as the narrator is, they are nothing without the story they’re telling, and hot damn does Jenna tell a good one XD In every form I’ve consumed this story I’m just yanked along on this rollercoaster ride. I go through the full spectrum of human emotion on a regular basis with this story. My live tweeting while listening is proof of this LOL. It’s just all so incredibly satisfying. The romance, the deaths, THE INTRIGUE!! I am 1000% into it and I recommend this book to everyone. The romance is way too cute and it’s healthy!!! God do I wish those were more common, but it’s here and that’s what matters. Tobias and Leila are serious OTP with tons of respect and love and all the sexy feelings. The deaths are both heartbreaking and so, so satisfying. Two in particular are my absolute favourite, but I’m not going to spoil. Jenna is crazy talented and I’m impatiently awaiting her next book (and next audiobook). My fave voices are Diccus and Rosebud (wait for them, you’ll see why). My fave scenes from the book were just as epic while I listened as they were when I was reading. I don’t know how to put into words how those scenes make me feel listening to them, but imagine me as that gif of elmo with arms raised and flames in the background. IT’S SO GOOD AND YOU NEED IT. I didn’t know I needed audiobooks until now XD I have no complaints. I had a great time from beginning to end and I would recommend it to anyone.

Enticing!

I’ve been following the author, Jenna Moreci on YouTube for a while, and now on the 1 year anniversary of its release, I have finally listened to it. This book completely blew my expectations out of the water, I listened to it only over the course of a few days! I loved this book so much, I completely recommend it to anyone who loves intrigue and enticing stories!

Premise was nice but was pretty basic.

The overall idea was pretty solid, but the execution could have been so much better.

I'll give credit where credit is due. The author worked her butt off for this book, as evident with her YouTube channel. I applaud her for this. Even the narrator was pretty decent, and he did his best.

But the plot twist was evident the entire time. Maybe that was the author's intention, maybe not. The other plot twists didn't exactly appear evident, but they weren't hinted enough either. One was mentioned earlier on in the book, but another one, not so much. The information wasn't given in a consistent manner.

The main character did not seem to evolve, at least to me. He remained relatively the same, other than falling in love. He had a lot of things spelled out for him when it could have been used as a great plot point for suspense.

** Mild spoiler ahead**

The biggest example was one of the best scenes of the book, in my opinion. Before the competition moved to the palace, Leila told Tobias to not look at the statues. So much suspense and terror could have been implemented in the garden when the statues came to life, trying to kill everyone. It would have been such an amazing scene if he didn't know something was wrong with looking at the statues and telling everyone beforehand.

I get it, it was written this way to expose Tobias's kind nature as a reflection from earlier when he saved Flynn, but in my opinion, he shouldn't have been given this ONE thing like he had been given everything else.

I feel this book could have been so much better. Maybe the second book will answer many of the questions that I still have.

It reads like a YA novel, although it's classified, at least by the author, as an adult dark fantasy/romance. So if you haven't really read a ton of adult novels, but you want to read adult words like "cock" a lot, then this book is for you.

Overall, it was an alright story. I've seen a lot of people enjoy this book, and I've also seen others who were not as charmed. I'm of the latter group.

Perfectly amazing

Author Jenna Moressi's way with words and the ferocity of Nick Denton blend perfectly for this action packed fantasy that is tugged along by riveting romance scenes
