Sent by her guild master to find the answer to a riddle, Tegan could never have anticipated how much her life was going to change when a cat-sized dragon by the name Serico ran into her.
The Dragon's Bond series is based in the world of Elilith, a fantastical world of swords and magic created in the Transfiguration series by John DeJordy. Book 1, The Dragon's Bond, is the initial story.

Dragon's Bond is a wonderful book that introduces you to the world of fantasy and adventure, through delightful and interesting characters, riddles, and mystery! You'll be immersed in the adventures of Tegan and her companions who are determined to solve the challenges presented to them along their journey. This first book in the series introduces the characters and their relationship, and ends with the Dragon's Bond. It can be listened to again and again with interest and enjoyment.
All of the characters were unique and had their own personalities, but I enjoyed the character of Tegan most of all. This character was genuine and she held the story together like glue.
Cat Lookabaugh uses her vocal talents to perform each of the characters in this book with passion and soul. She skillfully tells the tale of the adventurous team of cohorts, beginning with Tegan and Serico. Her voice literally brings the characters to life. Much goes on in this story, so you'll need to pay careful attention, but you'll not be disappointed! Cat does a great job in her narration of this tale.
I did listen to this book in one sitting because it was not long and it held my attention because of the excellent narration.
This was my first audiobook listen, not counting a children's story. It was a little frustrating for me because I have an auditory processing disorder which sometimes makes it hard to hear words if they're not enunciated clearly or are in strange accents (strange accents were used in this case, to add to the fantasy feel of it I think), but mostly I got it and was kept entertained.
The story held my attention but was occasionally a little confusing, such as a task scored a success but perceived by me as a fail, probably because the criteria for success wasn't laid down. I like quirky stories with animals in them, like ones by Octavia Butler, but this one leaves me sort of hanging out waiting for more, like it was just a piece of a story. I know it's supposed to be part of a trilogy, but it still knocks down my enjoyment of this one single book.
Absolutely!! Very well read. The reader works hard--with tone and quality accents--to drop the audience in the book's milieu!! You can literally close your eye and see the story, as it happens.
Enthusiasm, for one. Additionally, her accents are well done and she adds emotion and tone to alert the listener to a new speaker in the story.
Yes and no. Thankfully, the audio is about an hour and can be enjoyed during a car ride. However, if you are not familiar with the series, a few listenings are necessary to get background and context.
