"An appealing read for dragon lovers of all ages." (Library Journal)
I really enjoyed this one! The story itself is very cleverly written and I liked the growth of the main character. He goes from being a dragon into a human, and it felt really believable as he progressed. He has to learn basically how to live all over again. He can’t let anyone know who he actually is, since he’s being hunted. Without saying too much, he meets some friends along the way who form a bond, and it’s hard not to get attached to them. The narration in this is very good too and I liked how each character in the story had their own voice. Some stories fall dull, but this one kept me gripped and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Looking forward to the next.
It was written like a news report, and voice actor needs more practice with different voices and characterizations of these characters. The writer lacks the research and fails to provide rules within the world. Instead, relying on something similar to making up something to beat the opponent in a game of rock paper and scissors
I devoured through this audiobook in just a couple of days. It was really good! My Kindle is packed with dragon novels, I’ve read all kinds and many different plots. This one was refreshingly unique with the main concept. Most books I’ve read that involve dragons have them used as familiars or pets to humans, or rivals. In my opinion this book falls appropriately into the young adult category as it would be enjoyable for teens, but equally so for adults. The language is mild, but it does have some gore (as you may expect during battle “scenes” in a fantasy).
The narration was equally delivered well. The British speaking narrator gives a solid medieval-like feel and puts a lot of emotion into the words (as if I was watching the movie play out). I think fitting the voice to the genre is really important.
5 stars across the board!
Great story to follow. You can feel challenges Kale goes through in every turn of the page. Also, a great ending showing how tyranny meets justice. A great read for all ages.
Awesome intriguing story.
Illador Ranclef , he is real in the way he shows emotion during a frightening situation.
The path of the mighty!
I totally enjoyed this and look forward the the continuation of the series.
