What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
My voice doesn’t charm forest animals…
It predicts death.
That’s right—I’m a banshee. And I’m locked up in Nightmare Penitentiary with no hope of escape. I don’t expect to be rescued by handsome Fae princes, either, since the last ones I had a crush on put me here.
Now, the princes are here to rattle my cage, and they’re just as handsome and judgmental as I remember. I’d tell them exactly what I think about them, but in addition to stealing my freedom, they’ve taken my voice.
Stolen Song is a paranormal prison reverse harem romance.
Thoughts on Stolen Song
I’ve followed the Nightmare Penitentiary shared Universe through every release so far, indulging in the dark world that this Prison represents. Each book is a different aspect and features different protagonists, though there are certain faces that appear throughout the series, like the Warden or Brina, the insane and diabolical Staff Nurse.
This time, we get a front row seat to the life and sorrow of a Banshee, Imogen, falsely accused of murdering a Fae King. That’s bad enough, but those that accused her? Her childhood friends…a trio of Princes who once held her heart, but now hold her fate in their hands.
It’s rather brutal, but not a bully romance, despite the foundation. Honestly, when it all comes out in the wash, the fear and reprisal kinda makes sense… kinda. I still think she forgave and forgot a bit too easy, but this author duo does a decent job of smoothing those feathers and painting a picture we want to read about. It’s well done and flows easily, but I would expect nothing less from these talented writers.
- The premise is solid.
- I love Imogen, even if she seems naive… and how old is she anyway?
- Characters from previous novels briefly appear.
- Too quick to forgive.
- Brina. Let’s just kill her, shall we?
- The main villain is rather obvious, though not to the characters for some time.

My Final Verdict on Stolen Song
A great addition to an already fantastic series, this installment in the shared Paranormal Prison Universe dips its feet in both the Penitentiary and the world of the Fae, offering glimpses of both while wrapping a decent romance around the magic. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
