Summary

It turns out, werewolves are aroused by everything - and allergic to polyester. Hives are the least of Leslie Kingmaker’s concerns when she enters her first trial and is transformed overnight into a wolf and the mate of pack leader Ben. Successful, brawny, overbearing, and sexy, he’s as intense as he is moody and has never heard of personal space. Complete submission isn’t a sex game to him; it’s a requirement to be by his side. Heart, body, mind. They’re all his - no matter where that leaves Leslie at the end of the week. 

But something about the muscular alpha with a dark streak keeps her coming back, and it’s not just her duty as a Kingmaker charged with choosing the next leader of the supernatural community. Ben is dangerous and smart, a predator in every sense with the capacity for both mercy and violence - and an absolute animal in bed. Is he leadership material? Husband material? The danger her father’s final letter warns her about?

The deeper Leslie dives into his life, the more complicated the alpha becomes, and the harder it is for her to remember she’s only a werewolf for a week.

The Kingmaker code: Choose wisely - or else. 

One to love, one to lead, one to fear.

To understand them, she must become one of them.

Wolf - Fae - Vampire.

Three weeks, three transformations.

One ultimate decision.

Fantastic Paranormal Adventure

I absolutely loved this fantastic story, brilliant characters and hot chemistry. The narrators did an amazing job giving personality to the characters and bringing life to the interesting and gripping paranormal tale. I am looking forward to listening to the rest of the series and am waiting in anticipation for the audiobooks.

Really good, not as expected

I have to say I am not a huge fan of this genre, only because I have read very few of these books and a number of them have been Stinkers. However I was very surprised and encouraged by this book because it was brilliant. It's not a by the numbers, cute boy meets girl little romance by any means. It's an amalgamation of rough and smooth elements, mature, sexy unapologetic characters, surrounded by mystery waiting to be unfolded. I appreciate that it is multilayered and not your standard romance book. Not much is said about the Kingmaker paranormal world, but I hope this is done on purpose and the author will expand upon this in the following books. The narrators also did a brilliant job at bringing the book to life, along with the varied distinct voices of all the characters.

I was given this book for free of my own choosing and voluntarily left this review.

Moon

Wonderful dual narration by Lillian Yves and Vincent Lee Grayson. Both are great at narrating this great book, bought the characters to life.

I found myself hooked from the start. Leslie is a kingmaker who has to decide who will rule the super naturals, Leslie finds she has to spend 1 week with each as a mate with the 3 candidates, Ben is first then Tristan who is Fae then Mycha who is vampire. I had found Ben to a amazing alpha wolf. Loved the characters and plot

Trial by Moon.

Loved this book it had me going from the start, it had some twist and turns, ups and downs, hot and steamy, arousing passion for Benjamin every time he touches her calms her but also brings on heat. I cannot wait for the next book. The narrator told the story remarkably well where you felt like you were apart of it.

Not as expected

Overall the story lacked world building and fell very flat. It felt like I was listening to/reading a first draught of a debut novel that needed a lot of rewriting. That said, the premise and the intriguing plot, and the brilliant narration by Lillian Yves and Vincent Lee Grayson, kept me listening/reading until the end and only because there are some interesting plot ideas that I would like see if they develop/improve, I will probably invest in the next installment.
I received a free copy of the audio book in return for my honest and unbiased review.

Great start and great narration

Brilliant start to the Trial series by Lizzy Ford.
Lesley’s dad has been murdered and she is determined to find out who has killed him and she has 3 suspects in mind. Her dad was a kingmaker and now that passes onto her. This means she will need to decide who will be next to rule over the supernatural community and the same 3 suspects are also the 3 prime candidates she needs to choose between. It opens with her meeting with the 3 of them and her finding out there is more to the kingmaker role than just a simple decision to chose the best leader. There are rules and she must go through trials. The first book is her first trial, a week with the Wolfs and temporarily mated to their Alpha Ben and wow it’s sizzling! If this is the first I can’t wait to see where this goes. She has a huge decision to make and needs to find out who is the killer. On top she is doubting her fathers tales of the supernaturals all being evil. Loads of twists and turns and secrets and lies and I can’t wait for the next trial.
I was gifted the audiobook version in return for a non biased review and this gets top marks. Great duel narration brining to life a great story. 5/5 stars

Unique Storyline

I enjoyed listening to this paranormal book with a unique storyline. The heroine must spend a week with each of three clan leaders being their mate and then decide to choose a husband. This book is her spending the first week with the wolf shifters. The book ends where she meets the Face king to spend her second week. She has to figure out who is lying and about what.

The narrating pairing of Lillian and Vincent was the best. They had Lillian voicing the females and Vincent the males. I prefer this type of narration as my favourite.

Great Steamy Paranormal Romance!

This was my first Lizzy Ford's book, and won't be my last. This is the first book in the Trial Series, a Paranormal Romance. Leslie's quest is entertaining, and enthralling. Ben is alpha, dominant, and enigmatic. They share a sizzling chemistry. The characters are well developed. The world building is original, refreshing, and fantastic. Lillian Yves and Vincent Lee Grayson did an amazing job with the narration. This is a great start to the Series, and I am looking forward to listening to the next book in the Series, to know what happens next. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily written this review.

Great Story & Narration🎧 Intriguing🔥PNR🔥Fantasy!

I enjoyed this book immensely; the story is original and well written with interesting storylines that grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it the entire time. Lizzy Ford is a gifted author with an imaginative mind. She created a fascinating story and world filled with equality fascinating supernatural characters. She lays down the foundation of the series in this first book and it is a very intriguing start. The character growth and world building is very well done and easy to follow. Leslie was always destine to be a Kingmaker, her father should have prepared her better for the role before his demise. She wants to find out who is responsible for his death, still grieving she is set to fill her fate and find which paranormal being will be the next King. he must spend a week with each candidate and first up is Ben, a wolf shifter. In order to get as close to him as possible she becomes a wolf shifter herself and not an ordinary one either but his mate. Ben is the alpha of his pack and also runs a corporation, he is a complex man with secrets which makes it even harder for her to learn who he really is. I loved how everything played out in this book, the story is cleverly plotted with plenty of drama, angst, twists and turns, action, thrilling and suspenseful moments, heartfelt emotions and some hot romance. Lizzy Ford, thank you for this great story and start to what is going to be an amazing series, I hope the rest of the books come on audio soon.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Lillian Yves and Vincent Lee Grayson are talented narrators and versatile voice artists. They do a great job bringing these characters to life, humanizing them, giving each their own distinct voice, making it easy to follow and tell who is who. Their portrayal of the characters is spot on and they have a complete understanding of each role they play, sounding believable and just as I pictured they would sound. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the character’s emotions and projected them into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for the fabulous listen🎧

Great start to a sexy exciting PRN rom series!

I loved this book for so many reasons. Author Lizzy Ford is new to me but i love that she got straight to the point from Chapter 1. I was immediately engaged. Both narrators were new to me too and im super picky but Lillian and Vincent are incredibly talented voice actors . Perfect blend of sexy, angsty and emotional. And all the mystery behind that secret book !!!! I love me a good shifter story but i cant wait for the next trials with the fae and vampire! Well done 🎧🥰

Wonderful, original, hot and fabulous!

A Vampire, a Fae, and a Werewolf walk into a bar….Leslie has the daunting task of selecting the next leader of the supernatural community and these are the three in the running. According to ancient law, Leslie must spend a week as the mate of each as their … uh … interview. First up is Ben the Werewolf, very tall, very strong, very alpha Ben. I for one am in love with Ben. This story is hot as hades, laugh out loud funny, about as witty as it gets and fabulously narrated. I can honestly say I was saddened when it ended and I can’t wait for the rest of the series to come out in audio! Five fabulous stars!

Quite nice

The plot is interesting with fun characters. I am not sure that I like how the male narrator did Ben's voice, it made him kind of creepy. I am interested to see how things go with Tristan.

The most original story line this year!

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. The story has many angles, but it was told from one point of you witch I prefer. The listener can follow along how the main character finds her way through the trial and discovers her real heritage and worlds secrets.

I was so completely hooked that I bought all the series in kindle. I am sensing some interesting evenings in my future.
