Summary

A heart is a dangerous thing to steal.

From New York Times best-selling author Lexi Ryan, Cruel Prince meets A Court of Thorns and Roses in this sexy, action-packed fantasy about a girl who is caught between two treacherous faerie courts and their dangerously seductive princes.

Brie would do anything before making a deal with the Fae; death is better than their vicious schemes. But when her sister is taken by the sadistic king of the Unseelie court, there is nothing Brie wouldn't do to get her back - including making a deal with the king himself to steal three magical relics from the rival Seelie court.

Gaining unfettered access to the Seelie court is easier said than done. Brie's only choice is to pose as a potential bride for the Seelie Prince, Ronan - a prince who's not quite as wicked as she once thought. Unwilling to let her heart distract her, she accepts help from a band of Unseelie misfits with their own secret agenda. But as Brie spends time with their mysterious leader, Finn, she finds herself struggling to resist his seductive charm.

Caught between two dangerous courts, Brie must decide who to trust with her loyalty...and with her heart.

Off-putting narration

I was intrigued by the story, but the way the narration was done was distracting to a point that I bought a Kindle copy of this book and quit the audiobook altogether. I'm not sure if it's the narrator's fault or the producers, but it's just bad - overdramatic and without any rhythm to it. Men's parts, in particular, were bad - felt like the narrator wanted to sound deep and husky (?) but it just feels flat and forced. The fake British accent doesn't help either.

After I switched to Kindle, the book reads far better than when you listen to it. Feels like a different book. I normally don't mind narration, but this is one of the worst ones I've ever listened to. Avoid the audio and go for the Kindle / physical book instead.

A poor mans ACOTAR

I hated the lead character, she was weak and whiny and this was amplified by the narrator. All she did was whine about everything, not the strong female lead I was expecting based on other reviews claiming it was better than ACOTAR.. The narrator has a terrible fake British accent which just made all the male fae sound...well...fake.
I really wanted to like this book, I made it to the end in the hopes that it would just get better. It certainly had the foundation to be a great story, but the constant ‘poor me’ just got tiresome.

WOW

If you want to read something just as good as the cruel prince then read this. If you want to read something like a court of thorns and roses without the racist author and no POC & LGBT representation, THEN READ THIS!!!!
It’s so amazing.
The characters, the plot, the representation, the description- it is literally indescribable.
I cant wait for book 2.
A must read!

Meh.

Heroine is an idiot, got one third through and gave up. Too frustrating.

Performance is fine, accents are a bit weird.
