    In best-selling author Katie MacAlister’s Love in the Time of Dragons, suburban mom Tully Sullivan wakes up in a far-off place surrounded by strangers—many of them muscular, sexy ones—claiming to be dragons. They insist Tully is a dragon, too, and that she’s committed crimes deserving of death. Now Tully must disprove the allegations before time runs out.

    What did you love best about Love in the Time of Dragons?

    Love the premise of the main character discovering who she really is and her prior affiliations.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was just annoying. Her voice cuts right through me all of the time regardless of what character is speaking. The swallowing was very distracting. I've persevered hoping that the narrator would grow on me as others have. I'm within an hour of finishing the book, but I'm actually talking aloud to the narrator at this point just wishing it were over with.


    Any additional comments?

    If I live through this, I won't be listening to the other books in the series because of the narrator. I might read them instead if I still care about the characters in the end. I love Katie MacKalister's books and have listened to several and enjoyed them, but not by this narrator.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend to a friend. It was such a psychologically disturbing story that I can't quit thinking about it.


    Which character ??? as performed by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ??? was your favorite?

    I pretty much hated all of the characters in the book, but the performances of Whelan and Heyborne were excellent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did have an extreme reaction to the book. Early in the book, I was appalled by the behavior of everyone involved. It was like that train wreck that you just can't turn away from. You don't want to see the horrible thing that is happening, but you can't stand not knowing, either. It didn't make me laugh or cry, but I was so tense the entire time I listened that it made me very tired.
