    "Erg! Read more reviews before you buy this one"

    I so wish I'd read more reviews rather than just going forward with buying this book because it sounded interesting. The story is OK, but it references characters who develop in books from other series' and it's a bit hard to follow plus is spoiler-y because I'm reading some of the other series but haven't gotten through to some of the things this book gives away.

    However, the worst thing IN THE WORLD is the swallowing and wet goopy mouth sounds of the narrator. I'm halfway through the book and am so tired of hearing her smack her lips and swallow that I wish she was nearby so I could strangle her. I came to look and see if there's a kindle version of this book so I can finish reading it myself.

    Yuck.

    "Gave up 3.5 hours in"
    Would you try another book from Katie MacAlister and/or Barbara Rosenblat?

    I've liked other books by Katie MacAlister, not sure what went wrong here. I will try another.


    Has Love in the Time of Dragons turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Barbara Rosenblat?

    Barbara was fine, it was the story I couldn't take.


    What character would you cut from Love in the Time of Dragons?

    I couldn't really connect with the main character, the story seemed all over the place. As far as which character should have been axed, it's definitely the incredibly annoying dumb dog. The character and the equally annoying voice were the last straw for me.

    "All I heard is mastication!!!"
    Where does Love in the Time of Dragons rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Worst performance ever. I can't enjoy the story as much as I'd like to because all I can hear is the reader swallowing and making weird smacking noises.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Barbara Rosenblat’s performances?

    Nope.

    Story
    "Slurp Slurp Slurp"

    Unfortunately I couldn't get far in this book (not pass the first chapter). So I can't tell much about the story, writing style of the author, and/or character profiles. The reason why is the narrator. I was screaming after a few minutes for her to swallow or spit. Every word she spoke was accompanied by slurping, wet smacking noises. Either this book was recorded with a little too high definition or the producers couldn't figure out how to get rid of the most annoying noises I have every heard.

    Story
    "Incredibly annoying and confusing."
    Would you try another book from Katie MacAlister and/or Barbara Rosenblat?

    I've have mixed feelings about Katie MacAlister's books, but I'll avoid Barbara Rosenblat in the future.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting aspect of the story for me was the demon. A lot of the other stuff was a bit ho-hum, and it was confusing. I bought this as part of the sale on 1st of a series items, but what I didn't know is that it's not *really* the first of a series, it's the first of a sub-section of a series. Other characters that appear are apparently from previous Dragon series by the author.


    What didn’t you like about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance?

    Her voice was very annoying, and you could hear every single swallow she made. It was the most disgustingly wet-sounding narration I've ever heard.


    Did Love in the Time of Dragons inspire you to do anything?

    To avoid other Dragon series novels from the same author. I might read her vampire books again, but this book was a bit annoying.

    "Amusing paranormal adventure."

    This book would have been perfect, but i can hear the narrator swallow. The story was entertaining and amusing once i got past the narrator.

    Story
    "Not a favorite"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Just struggled with this story. Couldn't get in to it. Maybe if I had read it rather than listened to it? The narrator on the audio book seemed to pause at weird spots and I think she had a problem with moisture in her mouth as I could hear her making swallowing noises through the entire book. It reminded me of the noises my grandmother would make when her dentures weren't fitting properly - kind of a constant moisture/sucking noise. Hours of that in your ear would ruin a story for anyone. Yuck.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Katie MacAlister? Why or why not?

    I purchased the next book in this series at the same time as this one - so I am stuck now and have to listen to the next book. Hope it's not another eight hours of moist mouth noises.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. I love Katie MacAlister, but this story just didn't get there for me. And with the back and forth in time thing? I just can't see that translating well to film.


    Any additional comments?

    Would recommend trying some of Katie's other books. She is a wonderful writer. Just don't start here or it may sour you from her writing.

    Story
    "Narrator Voice To Harsh & Soap Opera Ending...."
    If you could sum up Love in the Time of Dragons in three words, what would they be?

    Though I enjoyed the book, I only gave it 3 stars overall. First, I was very distracted by the raspiness of the voice of the narrator. Like most, you want to visualize the characters. Since the author did not give a solid description of what Isold looked like, all I could imagine was an older woman (possibly in her late 40s) who had a severe smoking problem.

    The tale itself had me pushing through and kept me hanging on to see What Next. It was great until the LET DOWN! What happened at the end? It just dropped. I understand when authors want to build to another story but this ending was much to abrupt. I was so disappointed and left feelign empty that I am unsure if I would listent to this author again. If I do, it would only be to satisfy my curiosity as to what happened.
