Braith of the Darkness likes going through life unnoticed. Not an easy task for a She-dragon of royal descent. But the evil plots of her father are turning her quiet, boring life upside down, and she has now become the enemy of the most vicious queen her kind has ever known. But for once, Braith won't have to fight alone. Not when the warrior dragon of her dreams is willing to risk everything to save her neck.
Addolgar the Cheerful wishes he could say he's helping the pretty royal strictly for honorable reasons - but he'd be lying. It's not his fault, though! He didn't tell Braith of the Darkness to have the most delicious tail he's ever seen! Yet before Addolgar can get his very strong claws on that tail, heads are going to roll. Just hopefully not theirs.

A world with 2 suns with dragons that shift into humans & humans have cultures & groups not by races but, by regions that war with each other. Petty "GODS" influence humans to entertain or cause trouble among humans..The characters in this story are scarred, strong females in there later years. Some are warriors, some are scholars but, all are NOT the typical young 20 something damsel in distress. Most are WOMEN in there later years that have been oppressed or "used" by individuals of power. The women have different shapes & skin tones & talents. THIS IS A GREAT SERIES OF STORIES with some erotic sex & pairing in it.. BRAVO BRAVO..
This story fills in some of the early days of the main story line. As usual for these stories, the dragons are conceited, arrogant and really funny. Some other reviewers have said the narrator's is way too light and cheerful for this story, but I found that after a bit, the narrator was skillful enough for me to become totally immersed in the story.
I love this series!
This is a Back story that fills in Blanks.
I have ALL HER BOOKS as BOTH G.A. AIKEN & SHELLY LAURENSTON!!!
Seriously FUNNY & ZANY! I owe my Wife for introducing me to author
The New Narrator, Hollie Jackson is ALMOST as Good the first English narrator Morgan Hallett. HOWEVER, the different character NAME PRONUNCIATIONS IS SERIOUSLY ANNOYING and IRRITATING!!!!
I do NOT LIKE THE CHANGE in NARRATORS!!!
STICK WITH ONE (1) NARRATOR and GET THE NAMES CORRECT!!!!!!!!!!!
I only got about halfway through, when I just couldn't force myself to go on. I felt like I was listening to a cartoon.
Also, I think from the dialogue, the author was going for either a British, Irish, or Scottish accent; the narrator did not deliver & made the characters sound like toddlers instead.
I didn't expect this book to be funny, a sicfi fantasy novel, sure, but funny... yet from the start this book had me laughing. This is not an intelligent thoughtful epic fantasy novel, if that's what you're looking for keep on searching, it is however, perfect if you want some easy lighthearted listening, wrapped up in a sci-fi fantasy storyline, its ridiculously funny, emphasis on the ridiculous (so if you take your fantasy novels seriously and are looking for thought out and thoughtful plotlines, again, move on), and while it was not what I expected at all - I am a genuine fan of thought out and thoughtful fantasy novels, especially if it's a series I can get into - I am really glad I listened to it, it's lighthearted escapism, and I will get the next in the series hoping it too leaves me smiling every time I press pause on the story...
