    For as long as mankind has been stranded, dragons have been their sworn enemies. But no longer... Sixteen year-old Jenka De Swasso wants nothing more than to follow in his father's footsteps and become a King's Ranger. But when he one day finds himself surrounded by vicious trolls, a young pure-blood dragon comes to his rescue and they become bond-mates.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator was completely horrible.


    What didn’t you like about Christine Padovan’s performance?

    She would randomly pause at words without any apparent rhythm. The only time she was less horrible was when she got tired. An example would be as follows, note the periods and read the sentences as such "The grey. scaled dragon was tired and was barely able to raise. Its wings to defend itself." Note this is not a quote from the book.


    Did The Royal Dragoneers inspire you to do anything?

    get my own dragon?

    "I thought things would change when I found the others. We would stop running. We would fight the Mogadorians. And we would win. But I was wrong. Even though we have come together, we barely escaped from the Mogadorians with our lives. And now we're in hiding, trying to figure out our next move. The six of us are powerful - but we're not yet strong enough to take on their entire army. We haven't discovered the full extent of our Legacies. We haven't learned to work together. And there's still so much that we don't know about the Elders or their plan for us."

    Where does The Fall of Five rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    close to the bottom..This book was quite a let down...I figured out who was the spy from the previous book...it was shockingly obvious


    Would you be willing to try another book from Pittacus Lore? Why or why not?

    Yes hopefully the next book will make up for the atrociousness of this one


    Which scene was your favorite?

    when 5 gets stabbed in the foot


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    please don't watch me


    Any additional comments?

    The I hope the Lorien get smarter because except something is glaringly obvious they never think of it.
