Ysolde Bouchier is still coming to terms with the dragon part of her, while at the same time trying to free a friend of Baltic-her Black Dragon lover-from the weyr, get Baltic to meet with the dragons who want him dead, rescue a half-dragon damsel in over her head, raise the shade of the man everyone says killed her, and once and for all clear Baltic's name of the murder charges that continue to plague him. For Ysolde, being a dragon is starting to bite.

There is nothing better than a good book!
I have been a faithful Katie Macalister fan from day 1.... Before I joined Audible-I READ every series she has out and in doing so, my mind had created it's own opinion of all the character's voices, traits, etc... So, when I purchased and began listening to the Audible versions- narrated by Barbara Rosenblat, I admit I was a bit worried it wouldn't do them justice.... Her voice is very distinct- BUT... Oh, how I was SOOOO wrong!!!! Barbara's unique vocal ranges and absolutely superb variations on the characters accents BLEW ME AWAY!!! There really is no other narrator who could pull it off so flawlessly! Bravo Katie, and BRAVO Barbara!!!!
I enjoyed this one. In some of her books I felt like they ended like a TV series season's cliff hanger. There are still loose ends here that leave room for a last book book. As always the narrator Barbara Rosenblat did a great job with her voices. Her whole series is a great light hearted story that makes me laugh.
This is the only narrator so far that makes me want to scrub my ears out with a steel wool brush. Because of her bad habit of talking with a "wet mouth", I cannot pay attention to the story. In the past I was in a tractor truck that did not have very good noise insulation so I did not mind too much. But now since I have been placed into this more expensive truck, I can hear every slurp, slosh, and sip. Now, if I every find this narrator reading a book I want, I'll buy the paperback and save myself the trauma of listening to her.
I would recommend this whole series, but I would put more emphasis on the earlier dragon series. This was the end of the dragon series.
I have purchased several books from Katie MacAlister. Some were great reads and some not so much.
I did like that the author continued to bring in the old dragons from the earlier series to have some minor roles in the book to bring things together. I did not like how the story seemed a little forced. Like Katie was struggling to end the series once and for all.
I cannot see this book the Light Dragon series being made into a movie. It would not come out too well.
I do like fantasy books, but I didn't love this narrator. Her voice, inflection and characters all sounded like something from Everyone Loves Raymond. (I don't love Raymond, or his family.) Overall, her performance and voice make no sense when paired with the content of the book. She's got a New York accent... it's a fantasy novel! It makes no sense.
And because this is book two of a series, I felt totally lost when I started listening! Totally disappointing. Hopefully I only paid a couple bucks.
please, Audible, if you're going to market a series as the Daily Deal, start with book one!!!
I have read other books by this author that I loved. This one was just not working. I wasn't interested in the characters and I found the sneaking around they did unpleasant. I just quit listening.
So far this is my all time favorite series!
It's got humor, romance, fantasy... you can't help getting lost in this series
The Unbearable Lightness of Dragons
Its a great series!!
the asling grey started it out,then went on to silver dragon,then the light. it was a great series...
even tho it was of the paranormal romance, it made me laugh alot so a lot of comedy was thrown in.....
