    Dragon Soul begins in a small village of the Palmir people. A quiet, productive, and peaceful clan with an almost forgotten violent history. The Plague from the North - an attack of powerful, evil creatures - virtually annihilated them generations ago. They defeated the Plague, with the help of mystics and dragons - but at great cost. A Prophet has a vision that takes shape in a physical form and warns the Palmir people of an ominous event. Was it a just a reminder of the hellish past, or a harbinger of things to come?

    What made the experience of listening to Dragon Soul the most enjoyable?

    This audiobook drew me in to the world of the Palmir people and dragons with surprising speed. The pace at first was deceptively simple, reflecting tranquil village life (with dragons!) I liked the characters and the not very complex relationships. But the pace and the complexity of the relationships rapidly accelerated when that way of life was threatened. The characters, dragon and human, "grow" within their roles and they took me along with them. I forgot where and who I was, Lol.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This audiobook has me interested in what will happen next to these gentle, industrious people and intelligent dragons. The author creates a world that I easily and gradually slipped into. The battle scenes were exciting without being gratuitous with violence.


    What does Mike Ortego bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I forget that I'm listening to a man! His deep, resonant voice convinces me somehow that I'm listening to a woman, a child, a dragon. And he portrays emotions in neither too much nor too little a fashion. I like his slower pace of narration; hypnotic in a way. And it takes me out of my oh so busy life.


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

    It DID make me laugh and cry. A dog is actually a main character too and very funny. Family life is very touchingly portrayed. I cared what happened to them all. I was surprised that I could have that reaction to a fantasy audiobook.


    Any additional comments?

    Well done, BJ Whittington and Mike Ortego. More, please!
