Summary

USA Today best-selling author, Ella Fields, delivers a heart-wrenching tale of impossible yet unstoppable love in this all-new standalone enemies to lovers fantasy romance. 

The king of wolves was more beast than man, more tyrant than king, and so much more than he seemed. 

Raised to avenge his murdered parents, he’d been trained and conditioned until nothing but violence and hatred lined the walls of his dead heart. 

For nearly four years, I’d done all I could to help my kingdom as we faced the wolf king’s unconquerable evil — hardly anything at all.   

As the only heir to the Gracewood line, I’d been relegated to menial tasks that would keep me and my secrets safe.    

A chance to do more than fret behind our castle walls arrived when I breached them after overhearing my parents’ plans for my future. Fleeing, I unknowingly raced into a fate we’d all desperately hoped to avoid.    

By the time I saw him coming, it was far too late. For my family. For my kingdom.    

For my heart.    

Before I could staunch the bleeding, the king had me under his giant paw, and one wrong move after another caused those razor-sharp claws to sink deeper and deeper beneath my bruised skin.    

I might have been trapped, naïve, and furious, but I still had a kingdom to save — and a plan.    

Yet when we collided, the bloodshed, the fear, his atrocities...all of it dissolved like stardust upon the night sea.    

The stars had mapped out our destiny, but it didn’t matter what they or my heart wanted.    

I refused to see the enigmatic male, the heartless lost boy with a soul beneath the flesh of a monster.    

The savage king who’d destroyed everything I loved would fall — even if my heart fell with him.  

Inspired by Hades and Persephone, Rumpelstiltskin, and The Swan Princess, The Savage and the Swan is not connected to any other Ella Fields novel. It’s a full-length standalone romantic fantasy containing mature content.

Male voice is terrible

I was completely sucked in for the first part of the book....and then the guy started reading. His voice doesn't even remotely match how the woman preformed the character. I'd have rather she read the whole book. His voice just automatically turned me off from the story. its a shame, really.

Happily not what I was expecting.

Personally loved this book and how it was narrated. I didn't know I was kinda into romance novels until this book and I'm surprised and happy about it. The book was written very well and flows great through out the story. The small attention given to the details around the characters allows you to visualize what's going on quite well. That paired with the duo who narrated this book made for a very awesome listen. Definitely recommend to anyone who's on the fence or has this is their wishlist....get it!

An angsty, emotional, steamy fantasy romance!

Ella Fields has always been one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. After recently discovering my love for fantasy romance, I could not wait to start the Savage and the Swan! This was all the things I love about Ella’s writing. Angsty, emotional and steamy with a magical, fantastical feel. The story and characters captivated me immediately. The book is about a faerie princess, Opal and a wolf king, Dade. He is savage and out for revenge against Opal’s family and land. Naturally these two do not get along from the get go. The sparring and banter between them I loved. The story begins with Opal literally witnessing her father’s heart ripped out from in chest right in front of her. From that moment, she is devastated and comes up with a plan to exact revenge for her family. However, with all things, best-laid plans do not always work out. The love story between Opal and Dade starts out with them as enemies but as they work together, the magnetic pull between them cannot be ignored. As they come together in their quest to unite and bring peace to their lands, I could not get enough. The story is full of several twists and turns I did not see coming and this was just phenomenal writing! The audiobook is narrated by Kristen DiMecurio and Ralph Lister, which are both new to me narrators. They both did a great job portraying the heavy emotions, danger and suspense in this story. I will be on the lookout for more books by these narrators in the future. Overall I loved everything about this book and recommend it to fantasy romance readers/listeners.

great story but need to retire the male narrator

I very much like the storyline and the characters but I struggled with the male narrator which sounded way too old and his female voice was terrible.

The male narrator wasn't a good fit

I struggled with this book mostly because of the narration. The female was o.k. but the male was not a good fit.

Oh my…yes the male narrator is trash

I thought the male narrator wouldn’t be so bad, I even listened to a previous solo recording, this doesn’t sound like those. He makes the prince sound like an old British bumbling villain. Not a sexy villainous prince.
The female narrator is much better, even though she’s not the best one I’ve heard, 2 stars for the performance only because of her, it’d be -5 without.

Just who choose this man? He reads a little less than 1/3 of the chapters and since I like audiobooks, I just read his chapters on kindle instead.

The story itself is interesting.

Narrators were a poor choice

The female narrator was passable at best, and the male narrator doesn’t even make an appearance until 3.5 hours into the book. His narration was such a mismatch, and so jarring, that I returned the book and got the Kindle version instead. His voice mimics that of a raspy old man’s, which is the opposite of what the male protagonist is. It is clearly deliberate, which makes me question whether he read the first one third of the book before embarking on the narration.

The world building is interesting, so I’m willing to give the book another shot via Kindle, but don’t waste your money on the Audible version.

Awful.....

I truly wished I had listened to other reviews about the male narrator. Chapter 13, it all went down hill. I still recommend the book, but stick to Kindle for this one. If you are okay imagining a 70 year old with a 25 year old, then by all means continue on. I didn't think it could be that bad, I was wrong. Couldn't finish, I gave it one Chapter of him reading and had to return. I HATE to do that to authors. They should really pick better people though, (if they get to choose). This is only my second book to ever return out of.....a lot.
