I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I like this story sooo much. I was wondering what happen to Pya and Dragos... I totally skipped the book with the Gin... stupid!!! Dragos is sooo smexy it anit even funny. I was sad that Pya and Dragos was not together throughout most of the book, however the action did not disappoint. When Dragos went to get his mate was awesome. I loved it. Plus, peanut was finally born!!! Great story...Worth the credit/buy.
Narration was awesome.
It's all been said before by my fellow reviewers but to summarise:-
An awe and then some fantasy series in which each book is filled with likeable and loveable supernatural characters that evolve emotionally as they get involved in brilliant stories that are funny, tense, sexy, thrilling and, with clever dialogue, each book becomes a VERY VERY addictive listen.
When this one came out I was slightly disappointed and thought "A sequel to Dragos and Pia's story - how interesting or exciting can this one be?" BOY WAS I WRONG!!! It had everything we come to expect from the gifted writings of Thea Harrison and the magical narration of Sophie Eastlake who breathes life into every single character. Dragos was sooooo romantic and even the Peanut gets a bit more involved.
Definitely not a stand alone listen for 4 fantastic reasons - Book 1, Book 2, Book 3 and Book 4 !! So, if you're a paranormal fan but you haven't already listened to them then stop depriving yourselves of a great series and get downloading them now).
Worth a credit? Errr well that would be a big fat YES.
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
I recently discovered this series....and I got through all 5 books in about a week, that is how good they are!
The wait for book 6 will be horrible, I hear maybe November, but that is a long time. I will have to find some other series to be engrossed in in the mean time!
Book 5 was good...it was not as good as book 3, probably on par with book 4. I was excited that we get to be with Pia and Dragos again...rather than a new couple we get to see how this couple expands...and we even got to see Rune and Carling again, so that was nice too. The hot factor went down on this book, but the action went up...I prefer the hot factor but to each their own.
I am a fan, and I will get the next book when it comes out.
Love to read!
I'm so glad Harrison wrote another book about Pia and Dragos!! They have been my favorite characters throughout the series and I wasn't expecting another book solely about them.
Pia is pregnant, still trying to find her place in the Wyr world, and dealing with the stress of being the mate of the Wyr leader. There is a strong story line that isn't simply centered on the relationship and romantic encounters between Pia and Dragos.
It is definitely worth buying or using a credit!!
I was very happy to find out more about Pia and Dragos's relationship, and I absolutely loved this book. Sophie Eastlake also did great narrating, as usual.
I am Who I am; and you are Who you are...so lets leave it at that.
I loved Thea Harrison first book in this series. And the characters back!!!! I just want to say this book is not a stand alone you have to read or listen to Dragon Bound and then Oracle’s Moon. This book reference these books. But if you are para-romance fan and want to get into a new series that will be around a while I suggest you look into the elder races series. It has not disappointed me yet.
I like when authors give characters multiple books in a series. Its like catching up with old friends. If you read or listened to Dragon Bound and loved it like I did you will love this one too. You get to know how the couple and unborn dragon baby is doing. I have a feeling there will be few more books with Pia, Dragos, and Peanut. (Figures crossed)
The book has romance and sexy men. Fighting and evil vs good. It gave a little about future books like who will be hooking up next. And Surprises about characters in Pia life (like her ex-sexy boss).
This book will keep you entertained. I hope you agree and Enjoy;-)
This is the fifth book in a series that for some reason Audible doesn't have grouped as a series. I guess the title makes that pretty clear but these really should be read in the series order to get the most enjoyment out of the story.
This series is one of many where there are a group of strong male characters who get paired off with their true loves, one per book. This group of strong male characters also happen to be paranormal and immortal. Neither of these characteristics are in any way unique or unusual, the market is flooded. So here's the difference: Great characters, really interesting and powerful and funny and vulnerable and of course sexy and strong. The plots are also interesting and suspenseful and well researched. The narrator does a great job and she really adds to the story.
The main reason I'm giving this one such an enthusiastic review is that this author chose to do something fairly unusual for the genre. She went back to a previous "pair" and gave them a second book. I like it, especially because the two main characters are from Book 1 and are really the most interesting of all of the couples. Good idea, and I hope more authors follow suit. The ending of this book is wonderful. Ms. Harrison has created quite a few strong characters that are still unattached so I'm hoping she'll continue the series... I'll be buying.
Of course! I love all the characters. Can't wait to see how the baby boy is going to be.
Pia and Dragos. I love how they are still learning from one another.
I've read all the books in this series, and I'm glad I have, because if this had been the first I would not have tried another. The narrator is fine, I have no complaints there, it was just that the story itself didn't really interest me until more than halfway through.
I knew and liked the characters from previous books, and some of the dialogue and descriptive passages are really quite funny, which was the only reason I kept reading after the first fifty pages or so. The entire first half of the book doesn't really seem to have much plot. Pia is driving, morning sick,arriving, complaining, stressing, talking, and Dragos is working, thinking, grumpy, talking... You get the idea. It's only after they arrive in the elvin wood that anything happens that could actually be called a plot. The last hundred pages or so are fast-paced and fairly intense, with a climactic battle scene that is not terribly epic but reasonably good.
The book did have some good love scenes, I suppose. This volume of the series revisited the protagonists from the first book, which was fine,I usually enjoy when authors do that. However, most authors also include a secondary romance in stories like this. Thea Harrison does not, which in my oppinion made the story less interesting--it's not like anything terribly new and exciting happens between Pia and Dragos here--their relationship deepens and matures a little, but not enough takes place on that front to justify an entire novel.
I get the sense that this was a transitional book--Thea Harrison seems to have set the stage for several more stories here, and has perhaps made room for some fundamental changes in the fabric of the world of the Elder Races. I will probably read the next one, but I'll save a credit for it and not pay full price, that's for sure.
The ending was fine. the last two sentences or so actually effected me more emotionally speaking than the rest of the book combined.
She does a good job differentiating the voices, and reads the humor comically, instead of staying completely deadpan. This series isn't one of the best ever by a longshot, and quite frankly, if it wasn't for this narrator I might not have bothered to go past the second book.
If you've read and enjoyed the rest of the series, sure, read this book. But don't expect too much, and either use a credit or get it on sale. Don't pay either the full or member price. Also, if you're planning to take this on a long car or plane trip, make sure you take a back-up, just in case you find yourself getting frustrated by the marked absence of plot that plagues most of the book.
I love to read but with my busy schedule I barely get a chance to. However, audiobooks allow me to "read" while I manage my crazy life.
This book reminded me of how much I loved the dynamics between Dragos and Pia from the first book in the series. Pia is still adorable and ridiculous with a solid heart of gold while Dragos is even more intimidating and autocratic, but he loves Pia with a strength that knows no boundaries and it shows. At the beginning of the book, Pia, pregnant and mated, is off to elven territory to mend the relationship between the wyr and the elves. What was originally supposed to take no more than a week to complete, quickly turns into a poop-show, placing Pia and the little Peanut in harms way and sending Dragos in the midst of the battle.
The book is fast-paced with bursts of intimacy between Dragos and Pia displaying their growing relationship and the alterations each individual makes in the relationship. The banter between them is priceless and it allows the reader a glimpse of what can be with this unstoppable and powerful couple. We also see more of the previous characters as well as new ones such as Eva, the alpha of the guard unit sent to protect Pia. Eva and Pia form a special bond, their verbal and telepathic exchanges forcing me into bouts of laughter. It is the makings of a true friendship and it was nice to see Pia have someone else she can trust and care for other than a select few who sometimes are too busy for her.
The events in this book are connected to those of the last novel in which the Oracle of Louisville tells Dragos a prophecy that includes him. There is a battle at the end of the tale and a huge and sad alteration for the Elven people has occurred. We see the winners of the Sentinel games and although it wasn't much of a surprise, it will still be a lot of fun to read about each of the sentinels in future books. The end of the novel was a surprise to me and to the characters in the story as well, but it ended in such an uplifting note, placing a smile on my face.
Overall, a fantastic story; entertaining, humorous, and exciting. I can't wait to start on the next one!
Narrator: Sophie Eastlake
Eastlake is perfect as the narrator in this series. She delivers the quick and witty banter perfectly and she distinguishes the voices of the characters pretty well. I hope she continues to narrate for this series.
