    "Entertaining!!!! But the not first in the Series"

    I love this book. It was fun and entertaining. I just did not want to stop listening to it. I finished it in a day. But I do need to warn you that this is book five in the series. At first I did not notice that it was not the first one. But then the author made references to what seems like pass books. I have not read the other books before. I wish audible would warn us that it is part of a series and that it is book 5.


    But the story was fun and they were always some kind fighting going on. The narrator made the book a little up beat. Even when there was killing and fighting. It was interesting. I did not hate it at all. But she does need to work on some her voices. Sometime I did not know who was talking until the name came up. They sometime all sounded the same.

    I like the fact the author did not just give us the main characters points of view or journey but multiple points of views and journeys. I loved it because it kept my mind involved.

    There is some graphic sex scenes in the book but not to many. I wish audible also rated that.


    I like this author, I have her on author to keep my eye on list. She kept me wanting to know what was coming next. The book can be a stand alone...but its not. I hope they record the others because I would like to have get them.

    This book has Big Family Crazy, War and killing, Fighting, Steamy Romance, Dragons that are yummy men, Fun, and Entertainment from beginning to end.

    Hope you agree! Enjoy:)

    "What a disaster - the narration was horrible!"

    I love the Dragon Kin saga and couldn't wait for the audio version. But the narration is so bad its beyond belief. All the lively characters are flat - that is if you can work out who is who. And who is Avar? It sounds rather close to Evar in Fury of Fire by Correen Callaghan. The name in the book is spelt Eibhear. There is also a British slant to the language as mentioned by a previous reviewer. The narration was so awful it was criminal and only got one star to acknowledge that she opened her mouth. I never got past the first half of the story it was way too painful. Thankfully I download the Supernatural Anthology that has the Dragon on Top short story. It's narrated by Justin Eyre - now that woman really brings the dragons to life. She gives each one a different accent and character. It's nothing short of brilliant - I just hope she manages to do a few more because if the other narrator tries to do it again she needs to be taken aside by the Cadwaladrs!

    "Sorry, it's a No from me - too difficult to follow"

    I had it on double speed to get through it because I had not realised it was fourth or fifth in a series and there were so many names of places and people and Gods etc etc etc. that I was lost and gave up trying to follow it. If it had captured my interest more then I might of put the effort into it more but it just went whooshing past my head!!!

    Worth the credit? No, not in my opinion - it was just not my kinda book but if I had heard the others in the series then maybe but I wouldn't go back and spend the credits on them. If it does interest you then I would say definitely start and book 1.

    "Totally Wrong Reader!"

    This was a great story but it was read by the wrong person! The prose of the story was written in "Olde English" vernacular but the reader didn't have an English accent. What happened to Justine Eyre, who read the short story by G.A. Aiken, in the "Supernatural" anthology? She was perfect for these dragon stories. Please get her to return as the reader before putting any more G.A. Aiken novels on audio. We have waited much too long for these wonderful stories to get on audio for them to be ruined by the wrong reader!

    "Change Narrator For Other Titles In This Series"
    Would you listen to The Dragon Who Loved Me again? Why?

    No. While the voice was clear and concise, because of little to no voice characterizations, I was unsure who was talking sometimes. Also, I have read this and all the other great books in the series, and I would think that a British accented narrator would be considered, as many British idioms are used in all the books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dragon Who Loved Me?

    When the


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Morgan Hallett?

    I would have to have a good sized sample first.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is a wonderful addition to the series, which is funny and sexy. I love their excesses, arguments, and family loyalty. Oi those Cadwaladrs!

    "Romance?"

    This story was very confusing. I could not keep the characters straight, the locations straigtht nor the fighting factions straight. I agree that this could not be the first book in the series. I suspect someone who is familiar with this author would have better luck than I did. I made it a fourth of the way through the book and never got to any romance.

    Story
    "Very Good! & Kick-A**"

    I'm almost ashamed at how much I enjoyed the blood-shed, destruction, and head-severing at the hands of the powerful women in this story. Yet, these acts were not told in what I'd describe as gruesome detail. But, as is common in war, these types of acts did occur and often at the hand of a female. And, admittedly, some of the women seemed to take great glee in delivering death to their foes. But this is also common in war. So it was fun to listen to it occur at the hand of women who were powerful yet also lacked no aspect of their womanhood. Feminity was not delivered on the backs of dolcility (if that's a word) and deferring to men and/or manhood. I loved it. And yes, there were sex scenes which were somewhat explicit. But, except for the f-word, the language accompanying the sex scenes made them somewhat tamed compare to what would be expected in erotica. But if you have a problem with the f-word, then you'll surely have a problem with this book b/c it's used quite frequently. Similarly, language most people would expect from hard-fighting people--men or women--is included in this book. My only negative is that it was hard to keep up with some of the characters. There are many, and some of their names are similar. I also loved that it was humorous. I always enjoy that in a story, and it's amazing how difficult it can be to find stories with that added aspect.

    "funny, sexy, and well writtren"
    Where does The Dragon Who Loved Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 10, and I have over 200 books in my library. Not bragin' just sayin'


    What other book might you compare The Dragon Who Loved Me to and why?

    Well since they were written by the same author, it doesn't seem fair but Shelly Laurenston's pride series comes to mind. The characters are smart, funny, strong. The women kick ass, and the men have complexity that some romance novels forget to give the male leads.


    Have you listened to any of Morgan Hallett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, and if there was any draw back to this book it would be her performance. She reads very slow, and the voice range could have been better. I fixed the speed by turning in up in settings, and her voice isn't completely monotone, so it didn't ruin the book for me.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It's hard for me to say, because it's an important scene in the book, so it would spoil it for someone who hasn't listened.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read this series and I highly recommend it. However, the whole series is not on audio yet. The first four books aren't here, so if you're starting this series now keep that in mind, you might get a little lost. There are a lot of characters and a lot of world building you may have missed out on if you're just starting from here. though the book does give some background information. I would recommend reading the first book which is Dragon Actually
    and is sold as an e book on amazon.

    "Pretty Good Book!"
    Where does The Dragon Who Loved Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listen to a lot of audiobooks, and I thought this was one of the better ones. It was a little slow to get into, especially if you haven't read the other books in the series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dragon Who Loved Me?

    When Queen Anwyl rides out over the enemy troops on dragon back, then jumps off, landing behind the enemy general on his horse. After killing him, she looks around, grins, and says, "Hello lads...Name's Anwyl."


    Which character – as performed by Morgan Hallett – was your favorite?

    Anwyl the Bloody. You can just picture her as the Mad Queen, and a loving mother at the same time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    These dragons don't need training.


    Any additional comments?

    There a several books in this series. I hope they are going to go back and produce the others.

    Any additional comments?

    This is the 5th book in the series so if you have not read the previous books you may find it hard to keep track of all the characters.

    The series is excellent so I highly recommend starting this series. It has a lot of fantasy and humor mixed in with the romance. It is a perfect combination.
