Summary

Vampires slaughtered my family. No one believed me until I met some new friends, who promised to help me get justice.

But nothing prepared me for Marcus Varik. Tall, dark, and mind-numbingly sexy. But he’s also shy, protective, and adorably eccentric.

Oh God, I should have never agreed to betray him. Hopefully, it's not too late to fix my mistake before I lose more people I love.

Claiming Marcus is the first book in an MM paranormal romance series that has vampires, betrayal, annoying brothers, music, heartbreak, hope, sexy times, and a raven named Ozzie.

🎧Kenneth's Audioslaves Reviewer🎧

Claiming Marcus (Lords of Discord Book 1) by Jocelynn Drake. I enjoyed this book A good start to the series. This story develops nicely. A good combination of world building and character development. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
The Narrator Kenneth Obi did a fantastic job bringing these characters and story to life.

Thrilling Start To A New Series

Claiming Marcus is a trilling start to the Lords of Discord series by Jocelynn Drake.
The vampire world building and character development are excellent and I loved Marcus and his brothers and can’t wait to hear each of the other 3 brothers stories, I hope they each find someone as perfect for them as Ethan is for Marcus.
Kenneth Obi does a fantastic job narrating this book, he brings it to life.
He gives each character an individual voice, so it is easy to distinguish one from another. You feel all the emotions, tension and sexual chemistry, great job!

I LOVE KENNETH!

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me, maybe because I'm not a native English speaker.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Kenneth Obi is one of the top 5 narrators (so far) for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review. But as usual, Kenneth did a great job!

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Gripping story

This story gripped me from the beginning. I needed to find out where the journey would take Marcus and Ethan and couldn’t stop listening until the conclusion. Beautifully written by Jocelynn Drake and Kenneth Obi brought the characters to life (well,some of them!) amazingly as usual.

Sweet and Deadly Vampires

I really liked this one the only issue I had was I felt like our MC was a little to quick to give up his revenge and not quick enough in his confessions when he did decide but otherwise a great fun story and look forward to other books about these brothers :) great narration :)

Jocelynn Drake and Kenneth Obi - the perfect duo

I loved this book! My heart ached for Ethan, who lost his family to a horrific vampire attack, and I empathized with his desire to seek revenge. I both hated and sympathized with Marcus's mother. I loved Marcus and his brothers and how protective of their mother they were, how they were protective of humans, and how they embraced Ethan and made him a part of their family. And dare I say that I absolutely adored Rafe.

Jocelynn Drake's writing is superb. She weaves a beautiful story of love, loss, pain, and acceptance. She drew me into the story from the very first page.

Kenneth Obi's narration was perfect. His voice brought the characters to life for me. I could actually picture the characters and their scenes in my mind, which increased my enjoyment of the story.

Anxiously awaiting Rafe's book.

Great Start to Vampire Series!

I thought this was a great start to Jocelynn's new vampire series. Marcus is so shy and unsure of himself that it's fun to see how he acts around Ethan! I can't wait to read Rafe's book next. Each story is about a different brother.

Kenneth nailed it with his great narration! I loved how distinct each voice was and the timing was perfect. Can't wait to listen to more from him. He does a great job at bringing the books and characters to life!

Great start

A great start to a new series.

I do like a good vampire story, and this is definitely in that category. Ethan faced horror at the age of ten so was obviously going to be sucked in by new friends with an anti vampire agenda. After meeting Marcus and falling for him very quickly, he saw through the preconceptions and lies he'd been told, and aligned himself firmly with the Variks.

There is a perfect blend of romance, heat and danger in this book. Marcus' three brothers play a large part in helping with the latter. They are all fascinating characters, but I am pleased that Rafe's story is next.

The narration by Kenneth Obi is excellent. He had a lot of characters to find voices for; they are all different and suit personalities exactly. I particularly loved Minerva and when it is written that she "cackles", she actually cackles!
