War makes strange bedfellows.
I, Gaius Domitus, one-eyed rebel dragon king of the Provinces, know that better than most, since I have to fight off half my ungrateful family on a regular basis to keep law and order here in my lands. But I never expected to have to consort with a barbarian human woman. Kachka is beautiful, if you like them fierce - and of course I do. But she keeps complaining about how spoiled and decadent I am and how a feared Daughter of the Steppes has no time for foolish dragons. I think she likes my eye patch, though. It is quite dashing. With death always at our tails, we take our passion like we take our allies. As they say, love the barbarian you're with.

My issue lies in the performance. The stories is fun and good, I had read it before and wanted to enjoy the audio as well. I'd put it off do to the other reviews. They weren't all wrong.
This is the same narrator add used before on this series and yet she went around changing pronunciations of multiple names. Ones that seemed to be correct in the previous novels. This interrupted the flow for me.
also the overly long breaks between chapters was odd.
G.A. Aiken, yes. Morgan`s performance wasn`t bad exactly, but her pronunciation of many of the names in this book were totally wrong which is pretty amazing since she`s done the rest of this series, with the names pronounced properly, that were released through Audible.
I would like to see more books for this series, but I do hope the next one that holds my attention better. Not sure what was wrong with this one...but I found it easy to leave it to do something else which is odd for anything from G.A. Aiken aka Shelly Laurenston.
The same narrator did all the books but couldn't remember the characters names throughout the series. Example: in the first book we meet Fargus. In the next book she calls him Fairgus. In the remaining books she calls him Fergus. This happened with several characters and was really distracting to the story.
I laughed and enjoyed the characters.
It really is worth a read if you can get around the orator's blunders.
I love this book. It is so good that even the constant mispronunciations of names could not make me love this book less. Seriously though. This narrator has done other books in the series and I cannot believe that she managed to mangle the names as badly as she did. Honestly I know Dagmar loves dogs but even I know her name is Dagmar not "Dogmar". Really? Puts me off the narrator greatly as she did this mispronunciation with most of the names.
amazing story and wonderful characters.This author never fails to amaze me. this was a good "hearing". I wish we had all the series in English. feels weird to read in between the series. G ood thing I already read the whole series and I'm just re hearing it now
I loved the previous stories in this line. I laughed and hoped for them but this one was just awful. Nothing funny. too much swearing. bring back the fun.
I absolutely love G.A. Aiken/Shelly Laurenston! Her books always have me laughing and this one was no exception. Morgan Hallett did a wonderful job narrating.
It is always a pleasure to invade the lives of the dragons. These stories are laugh out loud funny. the adventures, essentially the same except for the first but, always, always entertaining. The performances are good, I just wanted one more person to do some of the voices.
I'd give this a six if I could. Great fun.
Narration was well done.
The whole nine yards
Music Lover, readers
The series continues with the major story arc and many beloved characters. Funny, entertaining and always fun to return. The arc becomes more complex, worldwide upheaval on the horizon so all the individuals are developing skills, forming alliances in a wider world.
I was very thrown off by the audio. After multiple books using a particular pronunciation of names someone (author, reader, producer?) changed them.
Dagmar, pronounced dag-mar for each audiobook before this was
Dog-mar or Dog-mer. Jolted me out of story. I even stopped and googled the correct pronunciation.
Audio had number of other changed pronunciation of names/words.
