I have read each of the books in the series now I am going back and listening to each book. It only gets better each character is perfect. The narrator has the voice and inflections and quirks of each character. This is an amazing series and it is read phenomenally. Great writing, great characters and great reading! It does not get any better then this!
The writer is limited to colloquialisms, slang, and pop culture. I found it very hard to listen to 200+ year old dragons talking as if they walked of the set from a CW teen drama. I enjoyed the story, and felt compelled to get the next book, but, I read it instead and it was not so bad to read the words. It was torture to listen to the OMG's, and LOLs, and references to TV shows.
The author created a nice Dragon society, and a shifter culture that caught my imagination and wanted a happy ending.
First book by him I have listened to and I will think twice about getting another one. I don't know if it was his performance or the writing that did not lend itself to be read out loud. When you say OMG, and LOL you sound like you are 15, not a nurse practitioner in her third decade, not a dragon who slept for 200 years. At least when you read OMG your brain substitutes the words and you can move on.
Yes it would come right after Vampire Diaries, and Gossip Girl. It was written for that age group even though it has a lot of explicit sex scenes.
I read the series in two weeks, and can't wait for the next one. THe story line and the characters intrigued and gripped me, I just had to read it and not listen to it.
After the last couple of books I thought the author had lost her love for this story line, but I was wrong! THis book is in the top 5 of my favorites! Strong female, no whiny male, good chemistry, good story and good character building!
