    Searching for her missing brother, Grace Carlyle never dreamed she would discover a secret world populated by mythological monsters - or find herself facing a sword-wielding being whose looks put mortal men to shame. But there he was, Darius en Kragin, one of a race of shape-shifting warriors bound to guard the gates of Atlantis, and kill all travelers who strayed within its borders.

    Now maybe I'm just spoiled because I listened to the Lords of the Underworld series first and Max Bellmore is one of the best narrators I've ever heard, but Heart of theDragon has terrible narration. I only made it through 35 minutes before I couldn't stand to listen to it anymore. The story is pretty good, I picked the book up at the local bookstore later, and I would recommend the story, but read it instead of listening.
    The narrattion was very flat and it was difficult to tell the characters apart, they all sounded so similar. The tone of the narrator was bored, sounding as if she couldn't believe she was reading such "drivel".
    I recommend the story, but not the audio.

    After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: a terrifying ability to channel electricity and to see a person's darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude ... until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world's most infamous vampire. Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all - but whatever you do, don't call him Dracula.

    A great story with lots of action. Frost has written a great story using one of fictions most notorious figures. Gilbert once again does a terrific job performing all the characters.

    Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans’ voodoo queen just keeps on giving - leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit. Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive.

    Story

    Jeaniene Frost delivers once again. I love how Frost has continued to develop the relationship between Cat and Bones. It's nice to see a character grow and change, but it's even better when that character is self aware enough to realize the change.

    I do have one problem with all of the stories in the Night Huntress World and that is Tavia Gilbert. Her reading is so well done that she sets a high bar for other narrators. Each and every character has a unique voice, even as the universe expands. The only other narration that comes close is that of the Lords of the Underworld series. I'd give her performance 6 stars if I could.
