Audiobook Review: All the Queen’s Men (Their Shadow Queen, #1-2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

All the Queen’s Men by K. Loraine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My entire life has been a lie.
I thought I was a normal girl, a typical college student. Until Finn and Jensen, two of the most handsome men I’ve ever met change my entire world.


On my twenty-first birthday, a single kiss from Finn transports the three of us to the Shadow Court. A realm of the fae. Because I’m not human. Not even a little. Turns out, I’m a faerie. The Shadow Court’s long-lost queen, to be exact, and I have to take my crown.

It should be easy, but there are rules and customs I need to follow, powers I have to unlock, and a prince I’m supposed to marry.

Unfortunately, there are also plenty of creatures who don’t want me to succeed and will stop at nothing to see me dead.

With my guards, Finn and Jensen at my side, I’m ready for anything. Except for my growing attraction to the men I surround myself with. They say they’re tempted by me, but I want them just as much, and I don’t think I can resist.

The Heroes: Finn & Jenson – Finn was a warrior and Jensen led the Fae army of the Shadow Court on a mission to help the vampire army and returned home to find that they were betrayed and the nearly everyone in the court was killed. They find the queen about die, having just given birth to a girl child. Before she dies she tasks them with taking the princess away until it is safe. They take her to the white Lady who tells them they will not age until the princess takes her rightful place at the age of 21. She tells them that they will be hers along with another who is not yet in this realm.

The heroine: Maeve – a changeling in the human world who grew up thinking she was just a normal 20 year old girl attending university. She lives in a home near campus, when she meets her new roommates Finn and Jensen, two of the hottest men she has ever seen. A year later after she turns 21, she wakes up in Fairie at the Shadow Court.

The Story: Finn and Jensen are both attracted to Maeve when they meet her, but try to keep themselves apart from her since they are her guards and she doesn’t know it. Maeve falls hard for Finn who is more genial than Jensen and he has trouble keeping away from her. When they finally arrive in the Fae realm, both guys realize that she will eventually marry royalty so they try to keep themselves as just guards.

Maeve finds out that she is betrothed to Prince Christian and has no choice but to marry him to forge a bond with the night court (ruled by vampires). Prince Christian is half fae, half vampire. The vampire curse has been broken and they can walk in the daylight. So the bond between the courts will be strong. Maeve feels and instant connection with Christian, similar to what she felt when she met Finn and Jensen.

Maeve’s last man doesn’t appear until half way through the book. Prince Rhys of the Sea Court arrives just in time to help the group out of a sticky situation and Maeve feels the same attraction to him as the other three men. There are rebels and some shadowy figure out to kill Maeve and all kinds of perils along the way.

Narrated by Stella Hunter, Shane East, Jason Clarke, Teddy Hamilton, Jacob Morgan, Wesleigh Siobhan and Kylie Stewart. All I want to say about the narration is that it was fantastic and these are a bunch of my favorite narrators all together in a single audiobook. Each of these narrators has a distinctive voice and it was easy to tell one character from another via the voices. They all sound age appropriate to these characters and did a terrific job and I loved all the sexy accents.
