Dragos Cuelebre is no longer the only dragon.
Dragos’s son Liam Cuelebre (a.k.a. Peanut) is springing into existence, reminiscent of the first of the Elder Races who were born at the beginning of the world. At just six months of age, he has already grown to the size of a large five-year-old boy. He can read, write in complete sentences, and his math skills are off the chart.
A white dragon in his Wyr form, Liam also holds more power than almost anyone else. In an effort to give him a taste of normality, no matter how fleeting, his parents Pia and Dragos enroll him in first grade.
They hope school will help teach Liam how to relate to others, a vital skill that will help him control his growing Power. But school has a surprising number of pitfalls, and relating to others can be a tricky business.
When a classmate is threatened, Liam must quickly learn self-control, how to rein in his instincts, and govern his temper, because there’s no doubt about it - he is fast becoming one of the most dangerous creatures in all of the Elder Races.

Love this series, especially love this character and his family. $5 is a bit much for such a short story but I think it is worth it if you're into Pia & Dragos and the rest of the Elder Races characters. Hopefully Thea Harrison will return to full-length novels. Hate to spend a credit on a novella but hate to miss any developments in the series.
Short or long, Thea's writing and Sohpie Eastlake's narration are consistently top-notch. 4 stars overall just to complain about the price/length ratio.
Really like the way Liam thinks......and it is explained how he thinks. Good kid being taught good values. All the novella's were too short in my opinion.....but we were told they were novellas going in. Would rather see books.....not novellas in the future.
Peanut stops bullies, gets a girlfriend, and gets a bad teacher put in jail!!!! And he didn't even finish the first day. This may be short, but it is so cute you have to listen to it again. The talk he and Dragos has at the end was very moving and it gives us just a small hit of the dragon Peanut will grow up to be.
Thea and Sophie do their normal great jobs and the Elder Races is still one of my favorite series. Only bad thing is now I have to wait for the next book to come out.
because the elder book are awsoooom and i like pia and her story
he father rage
love her perfomance

Peanut is so cute I think everyone should read it.
His playfulness, imagination & intelligence to name a few.
I was mezmoized.
It's just too cute!!!!!!!I recomend it 100 %
Ok, there aren't enough words available to express how much I love the entire Elder Races series. Not. Enough. Words. This novella is adorable.
What I really need to comment on this time is Sophie Eastlake's performance. Perfection. She's always been brilliant at capturing not only the perfect voice, but also the perfect essence of the character's personality. This time.... I have heard countless narrators, talented narrators, destroy the voice of a child. She nails Liam's voice, age appropriately, and with such attention to detail that I absolutely BELIEVED I was listening to that child. Well done.
If you don't own every one of the Elder Races books on audio yet, you are doing yourself a grand enjoyment disservice!
A fun novella to catch up on how Liam aka The Peanut is growing into his dragon power. This is the 3rd short story about Dragos, Pia, & Liam so it's best to read all the books in order.
I miss so very very much the wonderful long tale's that Thea Harrison can write. These short stories leave me pretty much, looking around for more, and more. I boiught this book on a whim, knowing that it would be a small window in a world that can be so wonderous and rich with charachters plots and twists. Still it is a cute story. Who would not love the peanut.?I hope he enters into more and longer adventures with his parents and other characters in the future. ....I just feel like the words were stolen from the pages by an evil Black Dragon and Thea needs to go and find them all and put it into llonger stories that can take you away for more t than a moment. This is just a twinkle in time. Please please stop doing this Ms Harrison. I have read all youir books. Except the other short novella. I cannot do it.
Peanut may be growing up but the story is short short short.
Love the narrator. She has a lovely way of spinning the tale, of staying with the characters and captivating her audiance. I will not disparage the narrator for the short story. Just have to moan over the author's short stories. And that is a compliment.
Only if it is a real grown up book with lots of plots and twists and fun and goes on and on. I am really going to be a rebel on the short one's. Okay. I had a weak moment just to verify that I do not like to spend a credit or money for such a short story no matter how much I love the author. characters,,and narrator. Maybe some people only want to listen to an hour and a half book. But then take it out from a larger book so those of us who want a full ten hour story can enjoy it too.
Please please please write more long books. If there is someway you can take out a portion from a long book and put it into a small one for those who want small and quick then that would at least be fair. I am just sorta sad that I will not buy the one where Dragos gets hurt. Someday if Ms Harrison gathers all her short stories and puts them into one big story book, that is the day I will buy that book with great pleasure. I feel like I let my own standards down for purchasing the one short story. Sigh.
Yes. These are great stories. The characters are very interesting and the story telling is also great.
I like ALL of the Dragos and Pia books. I really hope we get more. I think these two characters are the best of the the entire series of the Elder Races.
I connect to books in a closer way when I hear them read and Sophie does an excellent Dragos!
I would not rename it. It is fine.
PLEASE bring back more Dragos and Pia stories and include Peanut.
