Dragon Bound is a good story line gone bad due to the authors instance of constantly bringing sex into the story line. At times, I was wondering if I was reading a XXX book rather then a fantasy novel.(OK, most XXX novels are fantasy novels, but not with a storyline surrounding Dragons!) While the overall theme of the story was encouraging, I couldn't get past the countless sexual innuendo in it to fully enjoy it. Had Ms. Harrison stuck to developing and telling the story of the human/dragon interface/trials/conflicts and left the rest out, it would have been a very different review written.
If you are interested in a book about raw sex that uses a weak story to go to the next encounter, this is it. I couldn't finish it.
It depends on what my friend wants. This book provided a great distraction and there were parts of it that I thought were extremely compelling, but overall a lot of scenes were fell flat and I was left wanting more.
The most interesting part of this story was the secret identity of the heroine. I thought it was extremely creative and it was fitting of a great fantasy novel.
Sadly no. I found her voice rather annoying when she played the male roles.
I think a follow-up book has potential, but I am not hankering for more. I think the story stands well on its own.
I think that the greatest part about this book was the creativity and the really fun character development. One thing that I would fix or improve upon or expand upon is the dialogue. I just kept thinking that there were things that these characters would not really say in real life. They were too corny or just not realistic enough and I found this detracted from how I felt about the characters.
Again, looking at all the good reviews, I thought this would be a fun listen!. The premise was good, started off well, but very shortly went downhill. Couldn't even finish it. Sigh, another credit wasted!
I bought this book because of the great reviews here on Audible, but I just can't seem to get pass the first chapter. I really want to like it, probably cause the cover is hot! LOL! My star ratings at this point are not really a reflection of my opinion of the whole book. I think the narrator is my problem. I have tried 4 different times to listen to it, and I cannot tell you what I heard. My listening "trick" for off-putting narrators (I pretend someone I respect is telling the tale) isn't working with this one...yet, cause I keep shutting it off from boredom. I listen to audiobooks while I'm working, house cleaning, relaxing, or driving, so I do usually "engage" with the listening experience. I will try it one more time, and if I can't tolerate it to at least the fifth chapter, I will know it's not the right choice for me, though it seemed to be the right choice for many others.
Nurse working at being a nurse practitioner. The only way I have time to read for pleasure is audio books while I drive to work. I have always liked audio books.
This has got me hooked on the series. I will be listening to more of these. Very descriptive of the people and the surroundings. There are lots of twists and turns to follow. Very erotic descriptions.
You can hear the hummor in story better in Auido of this story. Great job.
I like a lot of hummor, there is not enough of it in the world for me. This story has it in the right spots.
When the lady/??? beats the stuffing out of the bodygaurds.
cant say would give away to much of the book.
don't play out load around kids.
I'm an avid reader, and a newly avid listener. I work alot of hours and books are my escape, whether on paper or audio!!
"Dragon Bound" was okay. I have a feeling if I would have read it and been able to imagine the voices, I might have been able to enjoy the story a little more. I wasn't completely taken with the narrator's performance. There is a part of me that feels bad only giving it three starts because the synopsis really made me feel like I was going to get into this story more.....It just didn't quite hit the mark for me.
This book seems to me like it would only appeal to females, and in particular, probably only heterosexual females. If there was a specific genre, or a genre qualification to indicate that fact, it might help potential readers avoid time spent discovering the fact for themselves. I suppose one might use the fact that the author is female, and the majority of reviewers are also female, but that takes too much time. This book was a waste of time for me.
No, but it has definitely turned me off from other books by this author!
I wouldn't be so eager to cut scenes perhaps, but rather add a balance of scenes that could be appreciated equally from either a male/female and straight/gay perspective.
