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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
The narrator. Morgan Hallett must be trying to get fired from doing these books- I can think of no other reason for someone to have done the previous books just fine and yet fubar'ed this one and half the last one so badly. She mispronounced most of the names( Morphyd has become Morvid and often Morbid, Dagmar is now Dogmar, etc) and while she has been able to express the wonderful dry sense of humour that the author is known for- she delivered this one with little to no recognition of something funny at all. VERY disappointing.
The whole story- so glad that the Rebel King has finally gotten his book! No spoilers :)
Fire Morgan, get someone that actually wants to work, has a sense of humour and continuity and cares enough to ask how to pronounce difficult words or names BEFORE recording starts.
Again, I love G A Aiken/Shelly Laurenston- her books are my go to when I need my mood lifted. Her strong females and humour always makes us smile :)
Action, Funny and its a series....
Anwel, if she likes some one there problems be come hers and in return we get a book
I like her voice the tone is always on.
I laugh out load a lot it made me smile
I wish they were all on audible
