Summary

Maggie Jordan is not supposed to be having adventures. Her mission is to go to Gaia, a new, unpopulated world, and study the native lifeforms there. So how come she finds herself in on the female-dominated Yonnie Six instead, rescuing a huge, muscular prisoner? The same prisoner she keeps seeing over and over again in her dreams...

Korexiroth - or Kor, as Maggie dubs him, is a slave who spent his life fighting in the savage arenas of the Blood Circuit. He’s got plenty of kills under his belt and more than enough reasons to run as soon as he gets free. But somehow he can’t make himself part from the girl who was brave enough to save him from certain death.  

Now, Maggie and Kor are on the run together, trying desperately to find someone to remove the alien device that was implanted in Maggie as punishment for her thievery of an expensive slave. The device, or “slut button”, as it is called, forces Maggie to sexual excesses the shy scientist has never known before - and Kor is the only one who can help her control her new urges.  

Kor is more than willing to help Maggie satisfy her new sexual hunger, but his own appetites are not so easily satiated. For there is a dark secret, a shadow from his past that stalks him and whispers of power beyond belief if only he will give himself over to darkness.   

Will they find a way to return Maggie to normal? Will Kor admit how he really feels for her? Or will the shadow from his past succeed in tearing them apart? 

You’ll have to listen to Chained, Brides of the Kindred, Book Nine, to find out.

Good read.

There's a part in this book that reminded me a lot of the TV show Spartacus. Spartacus put on a fight with his best friend Varro for a rich child's birthday. At the end of the fight the child demanded Spartacus kill Varro despite it being a friendly fight for his entertainment. Unable to kill his friend, Spartacus refused knowing they would both die. Varro, also knowing they'd both die, pulled the sword deeper into his body as Spartacus held onto it in shock. What happened with Cor and his friend is exactly the same...like exactly.... even down to some of the things they say to each other. It makes me wonder if Evangeline watched Spartacus and took the idea from that or if it is just a coincidence.

The whispering is AWFUL

This is the second book of this narrator that I’ve tried to listen but I just can’t stand the blinking whispering it’s like nails on a chalk board it’s awful!!! I most likely will not bother Finishing this book Either.
I’ve also noticed as the kindred books have come along the main characters are getting more and more weak and pathetic! What’s wrong with a nice strong female character that does stuff for herself and that’s CAPABLE.
This is the second maybe third book I’ve had to return due to the storyline and narrator. I most likely will not be bothering to buy any more of the kindred series which is a shame as the series started of so well.

another winner from Evangeline Anderson

Book 9 follows the series really well and I have enjoyed it every bit as much as the previous 8. I look forward to listening/reading to the rest just as much!
Maggie, who lives too much by What if, and guilt, rescues Kor and this results in many adventures and romance
What I love about the series so far is the follow up on previous characters and they are well written with good character balance and enjoyable stories!

Creative story!

I really loved the story. The narrator is amazing and I love all of the different voices he does and even adds in extras, for example, if the character sniffs or clears their throat in the story, the narrator acts it out, he doesn't just read the book. All in all I liked the book, but the heroin was way too timid and indecisive and also complained a lot, even up until the end of the story, so that got to me a little bit. After all that she had been through, I didn't feel like I saw any growth in the character, though she said she did change, that was not portrayed to me.

The whispering is annoying

The narrator is good at doing the male and female voices until he reads what the characters are thinking. He does that in a whisper and it drives me crazy.

Not my favorite

The whispering was so annoying, And the main female character was so silly and boarded on airhead, It was hard to listen to at times.

If only there was NO whispering.

The story is excellent, I love Evangeline Anderson. She is an author that would you read what ever she puts out because you trust her. The only problem I have is with the Narrator. All the whispering he did to portray thoughts and what not, ruined the story for me. I will try one more story and if he continues to whisper I probably wont buy any title he narrators for.

Another Winner

This book was so good, filled with lots of action and adventure, horror, humor, hate and love. These book would make a good TV series or movie. William is such a good narrator of these books. I just know Evangeline has more Kindred Takes in her. I out here waiting…

this one is my favorite

I don't know why I like this one so much. All the books are very similar, but these characters are just my favorite ones. Maggie is so funny to me. Kor is like all the male figures in this book series. Them together is super cute. I guess this one follows my favorite romance schema. I just love when a nerdy or unexperienced in the field person catches the eye of the big bad one. Cute.

too much whining

the main character spent 12 hours stuttering and whining. that was the irritating part, I'm interested in what happens next but I could have done without Maggie

Why Why would Audible do this.

Why Why would Audible have both gender roles read by the same person in a 'romance' for godess sake. We deserve better than this. It ruins the entire fantasy. Having a book read by a computer is more romantic than this hagish female voice. It makes a sympathetic character very irritating. Why can't you assign two people to read a romance if not other categories.

I can't with this book

I really wanted to return to this series, but now I remember why I quit reading it before. The premise is brilliant, but I can't deal with the TSTL heroine. She's supposed to be brilliant, but her actions prove she has no common sense. And the number of times she says, "Uh, well, uh, uh" drove me nuts. I don't know if it's the narration or if all the uncertainty is written into the character, either way, it's a 'no finish' for me. I stopped at Chpt 8. Done.
