This is such a great story the action, the love, the suspense it all just draws you in. The narration was good. Very animated. For a man he does women voices pretty well. I will definitely be buying the other books in this series.
Always in touch with my inner child. Crazy about alternate realities and science fiction. Oh , I am also pretty stoked by books where people get pregnant. Very loyal to good authors but always looking for another to add to my list
it was really tough to put this book down to go to work. This genre is right up my alley and the plot was engaging. The narrator was able to take right into this world and keep me there.
if you're in to the mystical love stories. . this is a great story. . can't wait to listen to the next book.
Audio books are just my cup of tea!
Was excited when I saw this series on the summer sale. First three books for $3.95 each, what a deal! Purchased book one and started it right away thinking if I like it to get the others during the sale.
UGH, I don't like it.....there is something about the writing and narration that is off putting to me. The story seems shallow and the narration does not help that. Not saying the narrator is bad it's the combination maybe.
I love PNR but these dragons are not my thing. My recommendation try it only on sale.
Not bad for a PNR. The one thing that bothered me was these are supposed to be rough and tumble dragons in the middle of a war but the two main male characters referred to each other as "his best friend" about a million times. It doesn't fit.
Yes I would. This is a very good story - different than the vampires and wearwolves stories I normally read - but just as good!
I enjoyed listening to Myst's reactions about the "elven" butler. She was hilarious and he was almost believable!
I enjoyed the scene where Bastien told Myst something about herself that she didn't even know herself!
I enjoyed the entire book.
Yes...if it happens to be on sale.
I suppose. WAY too many references to specific brands. Another reviewer mentioned this; I ignored it thinking that it couldn't be that bad. But, it was incredibly annoying.
The characterization of the main character wasn't consistent. She was really attached to a baby in the beginning and was motivated by protecting that child. About a third of the way through the book, though, she never thinks about the baby again.
Ending was weird and abrupt--no actual conclusion. It didn't feel like a cliffhanger (what I assume the author was going for); it felt more like she ran out of steam and just capped it with a trite make out session.
Intrigued by minor characters who will appear in other books in the series--not so much by these characters.
I generally listen as I'm doing household chores, so, yeah, it was worth it.
Even for a romance novel, this author's use of hyperbole was eye-rolling. Literally. She also used so MUCH slang her characters THOUGHT in slang. Does anyone really think "OMG" as an acronym in their own heads? It was annoying how often the heroine described herself (over and over) as strong and "take-no-prisoners" but all she said or did was squeak and run like a mouse. Anyone in her situation should be just plain scared. So all the descriptions of the heroine as brave seemed like a smoke screen to make this very traditional tale of male dominance more palatable to the modern emancipated (and apparently moronic) woman. Part of this effect might have been the constantly-breathless high-pitched portrayal of the heroine by the male narrator who, otherwise, did a great job. (Part of the appeal of this book is that the narrator is male--unusual for a romance.) The icing on this poo cake was the worn-out romance-novel dominance-submission script that not only approached but perhaps actually arrived at "rapey." SPOILER: The heroine is, in fact, impregnated against her will, which in the story is a death sentence, then takes about 3 pages to get over it and sell the rest of her (short) life into captivity to be with the perpetrator because he is her soul mate..because, apparently, whether or not someone is your soul mate has nothing to do with how they treat you.If you read/hear this novel and don't find this aspect disturbing then I recommend the self-help book Attached as you probably have an anxious attachment style.
Voracious reader/listener: I usually have one ebook and one audiobook going at a the same time. I'm a very eclectic reader so I tend to switch genres after every book. I'm open to most genres but my favorites in audio are mystery and fantasy (epic and urban both).
I think the author had a good idea here but I just wished that she had stayed away of the plot points that were like BDB. Doesn't it make sense for dragons to actually like the sun instead of being repelled by it? Also, the business of the energy and the meridian was so freaking complicated that I had problems keeping things straight. I also didn't get why the women died during the birth and how Myst thought she could have helped Caroline.
But besides the plot holes, my main problem with the book were the looong internal monologues. Several characters would just go on and on and on about things that were unimportant while important plot points that could have created tension weren't even addressed. Worse, some things seemed to have been communicated by osmosis: when did Bastian told Myst that Gregor was one of them? One moment she didn't know and the next she did.
The narration was good but not outstanding. Lots of the men sounded alike and the women were just OK but hey, at least the men sounded manly.
I'm still in the fence as to whether to read the second book in the series because even though I had problems with this book, I think the author has something. Oh well, I'll decide later whether to continue or not.
I really enjoyed it. I love the dominant male roles in the story. Even though I love my vampire novels, it was a nice change listening to another species. When there is a series, it's good to have the story line to be in continue that has you wanted to listening to the next book. Over all, in my opinion, this was an entertaining book with the perfect narrator, Super Hot heroes, and great story line. WHO EVER THOUGHT THERE WOULD BE SEXY DRAGONS!
I just purchased book 2.
It reminded me of the Black Dagger Brotherhood vampire series by J.R. Ward.
I think I like Wick. I would love to see him turn into the protective mate. It would be very entertaining.
This would make a nice TV series for Stars, Sometime, or any of the premium channels.
