IT WAS MINE FRIST DRAGON BOOK IT WAS GOOD. I WILL READ MORE OF THIS SERIES! SHE IS A GOOD WRITER. WELL PUT TOGETHER...
I purchased both this title and the second one as part of a sale. I had read other reviews that indicated that there seemed to be quite a bit of J. R. Ward style writing or "branding" and I love J. R. Ward so I thought, why not?
I find myself completely torn as to how I feel about this book and this author. On the one hand, the story is great and highly entertaining. On the other, I'm surprised the woman hasn't been sued by J. R. Ward. It isn't just a similarity, it's an absolute copying of style, vocabulary and race personality. It was like reading really excellent fan fiction based on the Black Dagger Brotherhood even though the supernatural race is different. Note that I said "really excellent" fan fiction, because it would be but it hardly qualifies as original. Maybe that's what this started out being...I have no clue.
So, I'm torn. I like the storyline but I'm put off by what I feel is theft. I'd love to know J. R. Ward's thoughts on this. If she didn't care, I'd read easier knowing my purchase hasn't contributed to supporting blatant rip off of another's imagination and effort. It's a GREAT storyline that didn't require the dragons speak and think like the Brothers so it's a shame I can't give the story a better rating or review.
I'll read anything good. I'm easy that way.
I don't know anything about this author, but if this is her first effort, it's pretty good. I was initially put off by the cheesy dialogue between the male characters and almost turned it off. (It sounded too much like what a young women might think grown men talk like.) Once that fell away, it was simply over-heated in the way an inexperienced writer might portray sex. Overall, the book improved over the duration, with some rather good action scenes and an interesting twist or two in the story. I ended up liking it well enough that I purchased the 2nd book (on sale).
I like the reader very much but he kept doing a distracting thing with the word 'and.' See if you don't notice as well. Maybe it's just me.
Better language, maybe I am old fashioned, but using F--k and Sh-t to make up word count puts me off.
Dumb female character is so 60's...
Yes, Benjamin puts in a good performance and made this book almost listenable.
Not so much cut as upgrade. I know the author wants to "set a scene", but most of the work is just sloppy and rely on idiots for it to work.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This book was good. Nothing super surprising though. If you are use to reading romantic fantasy novel, then this one will fall right in your library nicely. There are 3 books in this series. I think I am going to stop at this one. Basically a dragon half human warrior finds his mate. Basic romantic fantasy novel setup here. Nothing to wow gripping about the story.
Darcie actually did a good job. I am not big on male narrators, but Darcie did well.
Some things were very unique to this story and done very well, some things were rehashed from other books of this style. It's got some real possibilities but she's got to give her characters more depth for me to care.
The Narrator was all right but not that good with female voices.
All in all I like it enough to listen to the next two.
Over explanations of the history about the dragonfury. Needed more romantic/sex scenes.....
Not enough romance
The storyline is interesting but the pacing of the story is so slow...waited chapter after chapter for story to peak...the characters were not fully developed thus i didn't understand why it is difficult for heroine to decide whether to stay or not to stay with the leader id the dragon fury...she likes him anyway...there's nothing waiting for her in her previous life...police will be looking for her for a death and missing child she will not be able to explain and with a career that will be jeopardized by the same tragic event...Finished the book with questions left unanswered. I guess book 2 will have the answers to tie the loose ends but have not decided on whether I will give the series the second chance...
For someone who hasn't read books by kresley cole jr ward alyssa day etc becausee this seems like a beginners book
The plot was unique
Let down at the ending it just dropped off
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
Yes and I have. I have never really been intertested in dragon stories but this book has really captured my interest. I can't wait until I read the other books in the series. Strong lead male characters and a good story line.
I'm enjoying listening to Benjamin reading of the book. He add alot of emtional to all the characters. This is my first time listening to him and I will continue to seek book read by him. Plus his voice is delicious.
Coreene has done an excellent job of introducing a series with just the right amout of mystery to keep you reading, humor to keep it entertaining and romance to keep you longing for more.
