A beast. An enchantress. An unbreakable curse….

Deep within the sentient woods, Larkin uncovers a secret that puts her in dreadful danger. Worse, now that the beast has had his taste, he’ll never stop hunting her. But the forest has woken something inside Larkin; something that gives her the power to fight back.


Using forbidden magic will get Larkin hanged. Not using it will leave her at the mercy of the beast’s enchantment. But there’s a third option; one that scares her more than anything.

She could fall in love with the beast.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Lynn Bradford. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Warning: There are a few triggers in this book to be aware of, especially around physical abuse. The mentions of abuse and overall violent feel is not contained to just one section of the book, it is throughout so if that is something you don’t like to read about, this book is not for you. Also, because of the violence I would say that this is a book for the older-end of Young Adults and maybe even better for adults.

The audiobook of Stolen Enchantress by, Amber Argyle and narrated by Lynn Bradford is a case where I enjoyed the audiobook but am not sure that I would have stuck with the printed book to the end. I found Larkin, the main character, a bit annoying but she was voiced so well that I really feel the narration really enhanced my understanding and acceptance of the character.

Overall, the story is creative and entertaining. The new worlds of the Pipers and the enchanted forest are well developed. I am interested to see how this series develops in the next two editions and am pleased to learn that Lynn Bradford will be narrating the additional books. That guarantees that I will take a listen!

I give this audiobook 4 Sips!
