Hunger Games in Hell!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌏🌎
Character development: ☹️🙃☺️😳😎
Narration Type: Duet Narration
The heroine: Camillia (a.k.a. Cami) – She is a halfling, half Hell Fae and half Human. Her parents made a deal with Lucifer and she was the payment. Her parents were never loving parents, but her father did train her to fight and trained her about other Hell Fae. She was captured by the warden of the Hell Fae Brides and brought to Hell for the Bride Trials. Not many women survived the trials so there weren’t many women in Hell. The ones who did ended up bound to five men. Though the men were also bound to each other.
The Heroes: Typhos, Melek, Azaezel and Ajax – Ajax is not a Hell Fae, he is a midnight Fae (a vampire) and the warden of the Bride Trial Games designed by Lucifer. He has magic and carries a wand to help control it. He and Az are best friends and lovers. Az is a rare black phoenix and is Lucifer’s right hand man. Malek is the deceitful prince of Hell who knows how to make a deal as well as Lucifer. Typhos is Lucifer’s first name and he is the King of the Hell Fae and a master of making a deal. Melek and Typhos are lovers and bonded mates.
The Story: This is billed as a reverse harem but in this first book, it is mostly super sexy MM scenes, since Cami is busy trying to survive and get through the games, though I still see it as a reverse harem. While the men are getting busy themselves, they can’t seem to keep Cami out of there minds, Ajax and Melek especially. Though the men did find time to either help or torment her in various ways throughout the book and there was one menage scene that was very steamy.
This book was told in multiple point of view in duet narration by a nearly full cast of terrific narrators. I liked all of them and this one was a pleasure to listen to. Narrated by Troy Duran, Gregory Salinas, Kale Williams, and Lisa Zimmerman. All of these guys had terrific voices which matched their characters perfectly and this was a great listen!
The storyline was interesting and original, though if I would have looked ahead before starting this book, I definitely would have waited till April when the next book comes out before starting this one and making sure that next book is going to be the last in the series, or waiting for the entire series. I like binging series much more than reading them months or years apart and this one did have a cliffhanger ending. Though I definitely will grab the next book(s) when they come out.
