Publisher's Summary

Centuries ago, Illarion was betrayed - a dragon made human against his will, then forced to serve humanity as a dragonmount in their army, and to fight for them in barbaric wars, even while he hated everything about them. Enslaved and separated from everyone he knew and from his own dragon brothers, he was forced into exile in a fey realm where he lost the only thing he ever really loved.

Now he has a chance to regain what's been lost - to have the one thing he covets most. But only if he gives up his brothers and forsakes the oaths he holds most dear. Yet what terrifies him most isn't the cost his happiness might incur, it's the fact that there is just enough human in his dragon's heart that he might actually be willing to pay it and betray everything and everyone - to see the entire world burn....

    "Repeating story lines"

    I notice that some of the things need to be relived again through our main character illy but some of it was so obviously cut and pasted from the previous books that I clearly noticed the lack of new stories and content through this book and because of this it is probably my least favorite in the series as a whole because it leaves me feeling that Kenyon had to use parts of the old books to fill the gaps in this one

    "Very disappointed!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I have read/ listened to all of Sherrilyn's DH and league books and have never been this disappointed! For literally half the book, I think she just copied from "Son of no one", and "Dragonsbane". There was an entire chapter that I skipped, because I had just listened to it earlier this week.


    What could Sherrilyn Kenyon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    When you actually focused on the main characters for the first half of the book, it was a good story. "SPOILER" All of a sudden you skip 10 years and she dies!! There was little to no emotion leading into that portion of the story. It was like an afterthought, not the main source of conflict in the book. Had I not know from previous books that she dies, it would have been even more of a WTF!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I prefer Fred To Holter and am wondering why he was skipped? I know Holter does Nick and Fred does League, and they usually switch with DH. Holter did Dragonbane and Son of no one, so I'm wondering why he is doing the majority?


    Any additional comments?

    It seems like you didn't even try with this one! I will be returning this book and getting my money back. I do not want to pay full price for a book that literally took chapters from previous works.

    Story
    "Cut and Paste"

    The only thing going for this Audiobook is the narrator. Half the story was cut and paste (some parts literally!) from the last book in the series. The book repeats stale storylines and develops about every relationship but that of the two main characters. Characters popped in and out with little rhyme, reason, or context. If you haven't read prior books in the series, you will be completely lost. Overall, very sloppy, very lazy, very disappointing storytelling. Don't waste your time on this one!!

    Story
    "stunk. preordered and not eligible for return"
    What would have made Dragonmark better?

    have an actual story


    Has Dragonmark turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I won't buy any more of the dragon part of this series


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

    great narrator


    What character would you cut from Dragonmark?

    really? the entire book was about everyone BUT who the story was supposed to be about


    Any additional comments?

    if you read son of no one--don't bother with this book; it's 80% word for word and a few scenes from Illy; I would like to return it but it says not eligible for return. what a huge bummer

    Story
    "Very Disappointing!!!! 48 Minutes of "NEW" Story"
    What disappointed you about Dragonmark?

    Honestly it was great hearing how they got together but most of the book is from previous books just his point of view. and we got a grand total of 48 minutes of what happens after the end of Dragonbane and that is so very very disappointing


    What could Sherrilyn Kenyon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make it a book on its own, it relied too much on previous books


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

    I love him! He is the best and does a fantastic job


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    DISAPPOINTMENT!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Yeah, it sucks that i cannot get my credit back since i pre-ordered the book.

    Story
    "Only about an hour and a half of new material"

    The original parts of this story were very good. HOWEVER, vast amounts of it (as in HOURS) were clearly copied and pasted from prior books. I honestly don't understand how her company allowed her to publish it. I'm so disappointed in this book. She's done much better in the past.

    Story
    "Worst book yet basically cut & paste from other books"

    I have been a huge fan of the Dark-Hunters since Night Pleasures came out, have spent countless hours discussing the series, have recommended it high and low to lovers of both romance and fantasy. And I have never, ever been more disappointed both in a book and in an author.

    Over 50% of the story is sections (not every section she pasted had Illarion in it!) straight up copy/pasted from Son of No One and Dragonbane. Styxx was a wonderful story that showed a parallel perspective on familiar scenes from the series. Dragonmark is more than half of chapters we have already read with almost ZERO additional information interspersed in the words we've already read. She didn't even bother to rewrite the scenes from Illarion's perspective. This was copy and pasted, slapped on a novelette about how Illarion and Edilyn met the first time. There is only one chapter that takes place after Dragonbane. One. Oh and what happened to the rest of Illarion and Edilyn's story? I mean elaborate more!! This is the worst book by her yet. The only good thing that has come out of this is was the narrator was AMAZING!!!

    Story
    "Originality lost"

    The narrator was strong, but the story was disappointing. I have so enjoyed the Dark Hunter universe, but the author is sliding into the habit of copying her own work that it is destroying the ardor of this avid fan. Part of this book was copied from “Son of No One” and another big park was copied from “Dragonbane”. We are not talking of a point of view change such as “Acheron” and “Styxx” mostly shared, but a word for word copy of many chapters from both books. My feeling while listening to this story was that only 30% of it was truly original (and that might be a little generous). Which makes the purchase of the story a cheat to the reader. Be careful of your credits on this one.
