Cop-turned-bounty-hunter Gabe Dominguez is hired to capture firestarter Nat Wyatt. For a dragon-shifter like Gabe, apprehending Nat is easy, but transporting him involves more time, energy, and blood loss than he envisioned. An attack from a band of fairies, an out-of-control forest fire, and a showdown at an auction don't faze Gabe, but Nat's innocence might stop him entirely.
Since discovering his abilities, Nat's lost a best friend, a boyfriend, and trust in his brother. Only his love of concerts and card games get him through life without a home. Rumors of the Judge, a giant dragon who once destroyed half of Canada avenging those he loved, provide Nat with hope of vindication. When Nat discovers his captor is the Judge, he thinks he's finally caught a break. Through late-night conversations and a shared love of music, Nat tries to convince Gabe he's not guilty.
Can Gabe continue his cutthroat lifestyle, or will he run away with his dragon hoard like he's always longed to do? Can Nat escape his legacy, or will his be another spark snuffed out by people who don't understand? The Oracle, the most powerful wizard in Canada, might be the only one who can provide answers.

While the world-building was good, the story overall reeked of a barely-edited roleplay dialogue. The plot was thin and weak, with random events that did nothing to add to the pacing or help move the story along. Most side characters and events were either extremely contrived or just *too* convenient. The characters lacked spark, depth, and motivation. The whole concept needs to go back to the drawing board, and would benefit from a brutal editor who can tell it like it is.
Most of it.
The performer was quite flat and unemotional in their reading, and didn't differentiate much between characters.
This story was really great: very interesting, quite different, great characters. The narration was also good. It kept me interested, wondering what would happen next. Not at all predictable. I can highly recommend.
Love listening to great stories matched well to the right narrators.
Ok I listen to this book on audible and the narrator did an awesome job to bringing this all over the place storie to life. Love loved the world buildup. Enjoy the characters specially Chad.
But the narrator keep me here. Awesome audio.
