Audio: 4 Stars
Although there is a 5th book in the Fantasyland series (Midnight Soul), this 4th book wraps up the battle against the enemies that were introduced in the first book of the series. At the same time, all books are stand-alones and conclude with their own HEA's.
I want to say that Broken Dove was my favorite of the series, but then I think back to previous books and have a hard time committing to that decision. I will say, the story was all things fun and compulsively readable - developed plot and characters, previous character cameos, detailed writing, and fun world-building. Of course, if you've read a number of KA stories, you also have the frustrating character traits that often cross-over from book-to-book. - Alpha males with similar idiosyncrasies; doe-eyed, quirky, acquiescent females (with a side of feisty); and KA catch-phrases. If you can look beyond the KA character formula, you will find that there is almost always an original plotline. Aside from the few times Apollo was a thoughtless jerk, I really enjoyed his and Maddie's love story. Having met Apollo in Wildest Dreams and knowing some of his back story, I was ready for him to get his second chance love story.
Audiobook review: I listened to the audio intermittently with the ebook and, for the most part, enjoyed the narration. My one frustration was the female narrator's voice for Apollo. I didn't like that he sounded like he was loudly whispering all the time like Christian Bale's Batman. It was kind of weird. Since Apollo had a number of chapters and sections in his POV, I wish they had opted for dual narration with a male narrator. It wasn't terrible, but it could have been much better.

Apollo came across as a bit gruff at first, but it doesn’t take long before he realizes just how amazing Maddy is. She’s not his deceased wife and after he spends time with Maddy, he’s able to clearly separate the two. He’s handsome, strong and fiercely protective of his children and those he loves.
Maddy has been on the run from her abusive husband Pol when Apollo and Valentine step in and save her. With the help of Apollo’s men, she quickly becomes accustomed to the new world and begins to start living. She and Apollo have a rocky start and I’ll admit, I thought he should have had to work a little harder to win Maddy. But he proves himself worthy and I found myself rooting for them to get their happy ending, and in the process help to heal the wounds they both carried.

My biggest problem with these books is you can NOT quit reading them once you start them. They draw you in immediately.Read more
