This is a really difficult review to write. There is so much I can’t say or I will be spoiling the previous book if you haven’t read it yet. What I can tell you is that this is a fabulous series. It is something that is completely different from Eve Langlais’s other books. Sure, this one is funny, but this story focuses way more on the story than the humor or romance. And that’s not a bad thing at all. I love seeing how she is taking this science fiction story.

So here’s what I can tell you without spoilers. We learn a lot about Rafe’s culture, the Rhomanii. We go back to his home and meet his mother. She is not a nice person. She has kept a lot of secrets. Rafe still holds a lot against her for how he was raised. He still feels abandoned by her. He was sent away to a deserted planet and raised by tutors and nannies. Now his mother did this because she feared for his life, but it was still hard to grow up without that love.

We also learn a lot about his home. The Rhomanii don’t have a planet. They live on the “Wheel”. They are true gypsies in that were roamers. Their home was a group of ships that were interconnected with many rings and spokes in the wheel. The more powerful the family, the closer to the center they were. There is a Citadel at the center of the circle. The Citadel is where the arch duke of the enclave is. The current arch duke is Rafe’s uncle who banished not only Rafe, but also Mikhail many years ago. Now, Rafe’s dear uncle has ordered them back.

Emma continues to be a great character. Even if she is a damsel in distress constantly. One of her issues is that she tries to see good in people. The people in space aren’t as friendly as the people on Earth (that’s really saying something, isn’t it). She is still in a very close relationship with Rafe, much to Mikhail’s dismay. I kinda feel bad for poor Mikhail. I really hope that he finds someone.

I would be remissed if I didn’t mention J.D. and Fred, the imp. These are two great secondary characters that we met in the second book. They are both great characters. I hope we see them both in the final book. I’m really excited to see where Ms. Langlais takes us in the conclusion of this series, King. Will Rafe fulfill the prophecy? I guess we won’t know until the final book comes out.

Rebel Narration

3.5 Hearts

I don’t what to say about Chandra Skyye that I haven’t said so far. She narrates so many series for Eve Langlais. She’s an okay narrator that I’ve gotten used to. She is okay at keeping the character’s voices consistent. She does men and women okay.

Author Eve LanglaisHello, my name is Eve Langlais and I am an International Bestselling author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens .

I should warn you, I have a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. While well known for my shifter stories, I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane…with pleasure. Or do you like something a little darker, more serious? Then check out my cyborgs whose battle with humanity have captivated readers worldwide.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. Okay I’m game Melanie. Great review I do love a good Sci-Fi so this series is going on my list

    • It is a very fun series. I think I saw that the next book, book 4, is the last book in this series. I’m excited to see how it goes.

  2. Hmm I think I’d probably read the ebook of this vs getting the audio. Sounds like an interesting series still though πŸ˜€

    • This is such a fun series, but then pretty much anything from Eve is fun. She writes hilarious stuff.

  3. I need to read more of her books and this one really intrigues me. I do like sci-fi so that wouldn’t put me off and this one feels more fantasy. A plus for me as well. Might have to look at the audios and see if my library can get this one. Brilly review!

    • I consider it sci-fi. It takes place in outer space. There are different kinds of aliens. Different planets and rules. I hope that your library will have it or get it for you.

  4. Is that Rafe on the cover? He looks all suave. lol. Reviewing books this far into a series is hard, but you did great. Hopefully I’ll get to met these characters eventually.

    • That is Rafe. Some books are easier than others. This series has a lot of stuff that you can’t mention without giving away spoilers. Some of them are minor, but I don’t like spoiling even minor things if I can help it.

  5. I remember you saying the first one was taking things a little different with the tone of her writing. I love sci-fi romance so I don’t mind if its more balanced with comedy.

    Oh, now isn’t that fun when everything might be a spoiler.

    I’m still working slowly through the books on my existing pile, but I will get to this series for sure. πŸ™‚

    • Yeah, this book has a little more suspense in them than most of her books. There is still Eve’s humor. I can’t wait to get the final book.

  6. I’m glad you enjoyed this installment, Melanie. I need to get caught up with this series before RT. πŸ˜€ I just try to keep in mind that the story is worth listening to even if I don’t care for Skyye’s narration much. Great review!

    • Agree. Skyye isn’t the greatest narrator, but she is far from the worst though. I enjoy the story enough. I hope that you’re caught up before RT. I hope that I can tackle King to finish the series before then.

  7. An okay-ish narrator. Yes, I think I’d go for the ebooks on these then. Thanks for that heads up. I love Eve!

    • I prefer to listen than to read, since I have three times as much listening time as reading time. That is the big reason why I’ve stuck with these on audio. This is a really fun Eve series. I think you would enjoy it.

  8. I definitely need to try this author and this series. Where do you suggest I start first?

    • If you want to try this series, definitely start with book one, Pirate. My favorite series is probably Welcome to Hell. Those are PNR romance, you could probably pick any of them and read. Lucifer is hilarious. Kodiak Point is another great series, with shifters. It has two spinoff series that are a lot of fun too (Bitten Point and Dragon Point).

  9. I love her books but haven’t read this one yet. I have something to look forward to.

    • This is a series that you really want to tackle in order, so start with Pirate. It is a bit different from her others books, but just as much fun. πŸ™‚

  10. This series has me curious, but I don’t think I would commit to audio. I have yet to try this author.

    • This author is so much fun. I hope you get a chance to try her sometime.

  11. I stopped listening to the audio of this series after book 2 because I decided that I want to read the remaining books for myself because I think I would get a better kick of everything, but it’s good to see that the series still carries on strong.

    • I really wish they had a better narrator for this series. I would’ve loved to have seen someone like Amanda Ronconi or Johanna Parker for Eve’s books. I have listened to Abby Craden narrate the FUC series, I really liked her.
