Book two in the USA Today best-selling series, Dragons of Eternity
As a half-breed dragon, Torque never had the luxury of choosing his future. Not only did his father barter him to the highest bidder, but a rare Shinto fey claimed to see him in a vision that involved recovering a lost treasure for the powerful dragon Synge - a destiny that might have been bearable if the vision hadn't included a mating with Rya, Synge's half-breed daughter. Who could blame him for being resigned to rather than thrilled with his fate?
Rya has had enough of being treated like an unwanted burden by her betrothed. So when she learns her mother is missing, she doesn't hesitate to leave the harem to try to find her. The last thing she expects is Torque tracking her down. Or the explosive chemistry that ignites between them. Now they must work together to discover the dark threat that not only traps her mother but has the potential to spread evil throughout the world.

If you are going to narrate a book, the least you should do is is learn how to pronounce the names of characters that have been recurring since the very first book in a long list of books in the series that started it all. Levet is pronounced *Leh-VAY* not just *Leh-vet*. It was completely distracting from the story bcuz you're constantly correcting the narrator in your mind, leaving you unable to focus on the story itself. The narrator also went WAY over-the-top with a too-fast, nasally voice for him. Our favorite little chunk of granite went from being dear to our hearts to a major annoyance and we just wanted him to shut the hell up and leave the scene. She also spoke so rapidly and without the proper inflections and necessary pauses, all the while not making the proper adjustments in other characters voices that it just ruined the purchase for me. I'll be returning the book back to audible tonight (purchased it in the wee hours of the morning this morning). I never really thought a narrator could ruin a great story but I stand corrected. All in all, the narrator totally ruined this book in a spin-off from a long beloved series of books. I'm completely disappointed in Ms. Ivy allowing this narration to go forward into publication. :-(
