Summary

Never sell your soul to the Demon King....

Too late. 

In an effort to save all that I love, I have to finish the job that Nyfain started....And ruin myself.

I've made a trade with the most cunning creature alive. Me for them. The dungeons will be my new home. 

Dolion's destruction will be my new goal.

I just have to get out of here, and back to my golden dragon. Preferably alive.

Wow, This Gets Gritty & Dark!😳😥🙏💘💥

A Kingdom of Ruin: Deliciously Dark Fairytales, Book #3
By: K.F. Breene
Audiobook 🎧
Narrated by: Tillie Hooper, Tyler Donne
Length: 13 hrs and 31 mins
So Utterly Gripping, My Heart Hurt!😭😞💔


I've just finished & firstly - WOW!😳💥 Thank you K.F Breene for a shockingly gritty, gripping & emotionally charged read, my heart was hurting SO much!😭 I guess the 'Dark' has truly arrived in this one. :BOOM:
The narration is sublime. It added dimensions, to this already emotional book, I didn't think was even possible!🎧🌟

So the Demon King, Dolion, has taken Finley & Jedrek back to his demon 'kingdom'. They are thrown in the dungeons. The shock is all of the other prisoners he's got there as well!😲 It's not long before Finley comes to realize she may have miscalculated. She isn't as safe as she expected to be & escape is almost impossible!😭

Hadriel has been left in charge of keeping Nyfain on track. He needs to release all of the kingdom's shifters. Their animals need his Alpha power to be brought to the surface in their humans, after being suppressed for so long!🙏 For Hadriel it's taking all of his bravery just to try & open Nyfains bedroom door & tell him he's letting Finley down by moping!😳💥😆 Its then that Nyfain tells him and Leala that they've been hurting his Mate, he can feel it all through the bond!💔 Leala has the answer.🙏

Omg, the continued world build, new characters & the leaps in character growth in this book - breath taking!🌟 The surprises keep coming throughout, good & bad. But for me it's the almost crippling feelings of inadequacy that truly hurt the most!💔😭 Hannon is a big brother we all wish we had, or wish our besties did, so we could lust after him!🔥😍

The wait for this audiobook was like slowest, pain filled edging imaginable.😍🔥 Waiting for book #4 is going to be worse, imo. You get an ending in this one ... But then we're hit with a giant hook of an actual ending to keep us hanging for more!😀🌟💥
I CAN WAIT .... I just don't want to!😂😎😍🌟

A Kingdom of Ruin

Finnly starts this book in the Demon kingdom, with Elfain helping her cope with her beatings and torture, with his love and determination through their link. When help arrives in the unlikely form of Hadreal and Lylor before she can succeed. Read brilliantly again by Hollie Hooper and Tyler Donne.

a kingdom of ruin

I don't usually write reviews but I felt I had to because I gave the second book in this series a bad review.
I prefer adventure anytime over sex and the second book had far too much sex and not enough adventure.
This book however ticked all the boxes for me. Initially I wasn't going to buy the third book because I feared it would be a sex fest but although sex was in it ,it was mostly action. I felt it was only right to give it a good review.
Also I have purchased most of this Author's other series and love them.
For one terrible moment I thought she'd gone down the same route as laurel k Hamilton. Her initial books were fantastic but from about book 10 of the Anita Blake series it was like reading soft porn .
It's a terrible same as I did enjoy her books until the relentless sex scenes.
Anyway it was a great read and I can't wait to read book 4 in this series ☺️

So much turmoil

Finley took the demon kings deal so she could free her village of the plague. Things are not what she expected in the demons dungeons she finds other shifters have been caught and the only way out is for them all to come together with a plan to escape. I really enjoyed this book and Hadriel well he’s just perfect.

While I absolutely love this series, my only let down was that it took till the very end of the book to get what I wanted😩 trying not to spoil anything here! But oh so many good and funny moments, lots of character building too! The spice, took a different route in this book and honestly I’m not mad about it🌶🌶🌶 Need the 4th book already!!!

K.F. Breene does it again!

You must read (listen to) books 1 & 2 first!
Amazing characters and storylines. I can't wait for the next, and final, installment to be released! I won't spoil anything, I'll just say... damn that was a great book!
*Please note this series is not for people who gasp and clutch their pearls at sex or foul language.

1980’s flashback!

I didn’t realize that my old Speak & Spell took another job as a book narrator. No? Well, all I know is our female narrator,Tillie Hooper is spot on, in her narration roles. But Tyler Donne’s “performance” could be outdone by most Kindles’ text-to-speech technology in sounding more “human”. The inventors (and voices) of the Speak & Spell only needed to spell things and were limited by the tech at the time. Mr. Donne doesn’t have that excuse. Why even have 2 narrators?

Absolutely in love

I found K.F Breene story’s last year. This series in particular. Fell in love immediately. It has everything I’m looking for in a story. Action adventure and hard core F*ckery. It’s perfect. I drive for a living so I’m always looking for the next best story to keep my brain occupied while I drive. This Breene series is the best that I have found so far. And since I have finished this book I get to sit back patiently and wait for the next. But I have to say the way this one ended. You will cry for the next one to begin. Thanks. Thank you very much for leaving me on the edge of a cliff on this one.

Heartbreaking, exhilarating, and death defying!

I did not think this series could get any more intense! Boy was I wrong! The pieces are not falling into place. Nothing is going as planned. Nyphain is about to make some seriously bad decisions. Something must be done! All hail the hero Hadriel! Stranger words have never been said! But this mediocre butler has wit and he knows how to get a party started! Someone forgot that you reap what you sew and karma is a beeyatch!

This is the most heartbreaking, exhilarating, death defying, adrenaline spiking book in the series by far! Hold on to your pearls! You are in for the ride of your life!!!

Very good!

Wow! Just Wow! Entertaining story that had me running the full gamut of emotions. Definitely a bit dark, but honestly I’ve read a lot worse before. The banter had me laughing out loud more than a few times. Love the characters, their growth, and their perseverance! Those with physical abuse triggers may want to pass on this book. Looking forward to the final book of the series! The narrators did a great job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene!

Series just keeps getting better.

So Finley is a amazing character and of course Nyfain to . But wow! Leala and Hadriel ! Those two are to die for to funny ! It's amazing and so well written . It's got everything - love, sacrifice, shifters, dragons, dungeons, torture, humor, magic, fairies, and whatever Hammon is. I hope we find out in the next book.

The continuation of an amazing adventure

Thanks KF Breene for an amazing series. Nyfain, Finley and Hadriel have grown and become stronger though all the torment they’ve endure so far. This will help them to stay strong in body, mind and spirit for their on going adventure and trails.
