Summary

I never thought I'd be singing happy birthday to myself in a dungeon. And yet when a sinfully sexy demon crashes happy hour, that's exactly what happens. He’s known as the Lord of Chaos, he’s mistaken me for my succubus doppelgänger.

Happy birthday to me.

When he tastes my blood, he finally understands I’m mortal. And I realize we have something in common: We both crave revenge. So we make a deal: I can stay in the forbidden city to hunt for my mom's killer. In return, I’ll help him get the vengeance he craves. I just have to pose as a sexy succubus. One problem - he's my number one suspect.

And that’s increasingly hard to remember as he teaches me my role: seduction. With each heated touch I drift further into peril. And if I fall under his seductive spell, death awaits me.

"I flew through this book.... Hot demon lord - check. Action - check. Romance - check. And there's spice! If you love my books, you definitely want to read this one." (Laura Thalassa)

Stunning

What an epic adventure, so many twists and turns in this demon world, will Rowan survive long enough to accomplish her task? Or will the demons put a stop to it?

Such a stunning story, that is unlike any others. Can’t wait to see what comes next for Rowan and Orion.

Wow!

What a book I loved Rowan and her quirks and even though she was locked up in a prison awaiting death she still was funny. Orion has a blood vow to kill Mortana and all her family when he sees Rowan he’s convinced she is Mortana. Loved how the story progressed and left you wondering if she really is Mortana even when everything unfolded you are still not sure if she is or not.

Omg, This Book Has It All!😍🗝

The voice performance is excellent. It keeps you on the edge of your seat, along with the story. The world is conveyed beautifully as is the steam & hotness of the characters!🔥

My word the hurt & stress of finding out certain possibilities is heart wrenching. This was masterful, I can not wait for book #2.🌟

I can't seem to like this one

I'm on chapter 9 in audible and the story so far has dragged I was expecting something spellbinding enthralling from all the 5star reviews I though finally a good audible story to get into. Sadly it was just meh. The idea for the plot had a lot of potential but it was just missing everything for me. The narrator was good as the female lead but as soon as she did the male voice it threw me out of context with any plot I was trying to follow. The British accent sounded pretty bad. Won't bother finishing thanks again audible for another boring romance.

Addicting listen!!

OMG!!
Read/listen to this book!! It is absolutely phenomenal!! I loved it. The narrator is phenomenal!! Amanda Leigh Cobb is one of my favorite narrators and she truly breathed life into these characters and elevated the story for me. It was truly a addicting, and enthralling book. I absolutely love Rowan and Orion.
This book certainly has all of the elements that I love. A bit of mystery to hook its teeth in you, angst, romance, and paranormal. Trust me, you want to get it!!

What Next?!

I love when a book has an unexpected plot twist. Often, since I read so much, I see so many trends and patterns that books tend to blur together. city of Thorns has the type of fairytale universe you can fall in love with, a heroine that isn’t quite a hero, and a rogue male that could take your breath away! Enjoy!

MUST LISTEN TO/READ!!!!

I took a chance on a new series after ACOTAR & BAA and I am so glad I did! Great story overall, and the narrator is hands down one of the best on this app. The storyline is fantastic, and the depth of the characters revealed throughout is ::muah:: — chef’s kiss. The romance is believable and nearly tangible without being over the top. I am going off the C.N. Crawford deep end and getting all the books!

Had potential but hard pass

I should have known this book wasn't for me so maybe this one's my fault. I was hoping for more adventure and storytelling than romance and smut. The story had potential but I was disappointed that the majority of the book was all sex and no story. If I could have returned this book I 💯 would have.

Fun listen :)

I enjoyed listening to this book. I wish there had been a bit more background in the characters. It would have helped understand them a bit better in the beginning. Overall it was a fun listen.
