    Bahzell is no knight in shining armor, and besides he has too many problems of his own to be messing with anybody else's problems - let alone the War God's. Unfortunately, the War God has other ideas for him.

    What about Nick Sullivan’s performance did you like?

    His voice acting really helped bring the story and the individual characters to life. I loved the accents he selected for the characters in the story.

    Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

    Story

    Story starts out fairly violent and cruises for a while working on the relationship of the heroine (and make no mistake, she is a heroine, not a damsel in distress) with her new husband and new clan. The characters in the story were well done. The narration really drew me into the story and made it real. Kristen Potter had great accents for the characters and she did a very good job with male voices. The end of the story ends with some suspense and action that was fine, but sort of gilding the lily on this great listen.

    Bahzell Bahnakson of the Horse Stealer hradani had never wanted to be the champion of the War God. Unfortunately, the War God had insisted. Which was how he had found himself among hostile strangers in the Empire of the Axe - except that that was only the least of his problems. For a start, there was the Order of Tomanak, who were horrified that their deity had chosen a hradani as champion, and were resolved to rectify the matter in a most unpleasant fashion.

    Story

    David Weber is one of my absolute favorite authors and this series is an example why.

    This is a great story made truly outstanding by the fantastic narration by Nick Sullivan. Mr. Sullivan goes beyond mere narration into voice acting, going so far as to use different geographical accents for characters from different parts of the story's world. This extra touch makes the story come to life for me.

  • The Dragon Who Loved Me

    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author G.A. Aiken is widely celebrated for her compelling Dragon Kin series. In The Dragon Who Loved Me, Rhona the Fearless, first daughter of a proud warrior family, resents that she’s not respected for her battle prowess by the male Northland dragons. But when one barbarian dragon becomes enamored with her, she begins to relish her influence over him.

    Story

    Solid narration by Morgan Hallett. Definitely more enjoyable than reading - for me narration keeps me from skipping parts of the story and makes immersion in the story deeper. A nit pick was that some of her pauses seemed overly long.

    This is not the first book in the series, Having read all the books, I was already familiar with the characters and their quirks, although GA Aiken does provide some description of the characters as they appear in the book. I hope they add the other books to the audio library. I would certainly purchase them. The main concept is that dragons in this world can morph into a human shape. And most humans don't know that.

    The series is sort of a romance/comedy/fantasy action story. The "romance" and language is explicit at time - this is not a book for young readers.

    The number one attraction for me of these stories is the humor. And I'm a sucker for romances with happy endings.
