Before she met Dragos, half-human half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now, she's mated, pregnant, and heading south to repair the Wyr's frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners, in more places than just the bedroom.
In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be. But as the games heat up, Pia's negotiations with the Elves take a turn for the dangerous, straining her bond with Dragos and threatening everything they hold dear.

I think Sophie Eastlake does an amazing job of narrating this series. Listening to the book is a whole new experience of the story. Sophie is able to express the emotions of the characters spot on which really enhances the characters and enjoyment overall.
Pia, the main female character. Pia is growing stronger side by side with Dragos and Sophie really brings out her feistiness as well as her compassion and love. Sophie truly brings Pia, and all of the characters in this series, to life.
I really enjoyed this book and the series as a whole. I find that Thea Harrison has not only created a wonderful world for her characters, but provides a balance in her characters and story line. There is laughter, fun, adventure as well as bad things that happen that do create sadness and pain. The flow is wonderful and yes, each book has a happy ending in its own way. This book was especially great as it was revisiting Pia and Dragos from book 1 in the series. Like any real relationship the story doesn't end at the mating - life goes on with it's challenges, hopes and dreams and it was a pleasure to listen to a new adventure for them as they continue to grow as a couple/family.
It's all been said before by my fellow reviewers but to summarise:-
An awe and then some fantasy series in which each book is filled with likeable and loveable supernatural characters that evolve emotionally as they get involved in brilliant stories that are funny, tense, sexy, thrilling and, with clever dialogue, each book becomes a VERY VERY addictive listen.
When this one came out I was slightly disappointed and thought "A sequel to Dragos and Pia's story - how interesting or exciting can this one be?" BOY WAS I WRONG!!! It had everything we come to expect from the gifted writings of Thea Harrison and the magical narration of Sophie Eastlake who breathes life into every single character. Dragos was sooooo romantic and even the Peanut gets a bit more involved.
Definitely not a stand alone listen for 4 fantastic reasons - Book 1, Book 2, Book 3 and Book 4 !! So, if you're a paranormal fan but you haven't already listened to them then stop depriving yourselves of a great series and get downloading them now).
Worth a credit? Errr well that would be a big fat YES.
I love a good zombie Novel and I'm a sucker for a great love story. I listen to as many scifi and romance as I can get a hold of.
Thea Harrison has a way of keeping you on the edge of your seat while Sophie Eastlake brings the characters to life. I fell back in love with the two who started it all. Dragos and Pia continue to grow and I found my self laughing at Pia's commentary. Harrison has showed that these two are not a one shot deal... While I enjoyed the other characters in this series being able to read about the Pia and Dragos made me what to read the series again from the start.. Can't wait to see what happens next!
Draggos was not afraid to let his feelings be known for his mate. I can't believe Pia would want him to big wuss, but it was cute how he softened up to her a lot. I also am so glad that he and Rune finally talked. I didn't like Rune's book because I didn't believe their friendship should have broken up over such a weak misinterpretation. Especially since they had been best friends for centuries.
Her voice impressions. It brought the other characters to life. The voice of Evie gave me pause but for the most part, they were good.
When he goes with his instincts to find her even though he promised to give her a week where she was.
I sure hope she has more of these coming soon because there are some serious new characters.
Don't want to spoil it!
Don't want to spoil it!
No. But it only took 2 sittings!
While this is a little bit of a let down after Oracle's Moon, it is still a good book. The Lord that Falls is a surprise and the 2 new Sentinals are both a real surprise also. I found Pia's new Wyr guard to be funny and a very good addition to the story line. I can also see her and the Harpy coming to blows in a future story. It will be interesting to see how the 2 new Sentinals develope into their new roles and to see how other relationships develope.
Ms. Eastlake does her usual great job of narrating and there are still many stories yet to be told in this series. I do hope Ms. Harrison writes them all because I eagerly await them. I do hope it doesn't take to long for the next installment.
I found this story entertaining but it needed more. I want to hear more about peanut the birth and other stuff. Also the way Pia took charge was different but I felt she needed to also acknowldge her pit falls to her hero.
This is one of my favorite audio books and I have MANY! This is a wonderful story that answers some unanswered questions. I love seeing previous characters return in this story. It is now my favorite all the Elder Race series. I would recommend reading these stories in order.
Lord's Fall brings back Dragos and Pia. It answers questions brought up in Oracle's Moon. It reconciles relationships broken in Serpent's Kiss. You could compare this book to Dragon Bound because it's Dragos and Pia's story.
My favorite was the lovely thoughts that occurred when Dragos came to rescue Pia. The words were in-depth and you could only imagine the love that exist.
I am not an emotional person so there were no tears or outburst of laughter but I did smile many of times and I do recall going "awwww"...LOL.
The narrator was wonderful. The characters and story were well written. I loved all books except for Storm's Heart ( I think that's the name) but the rest of the series was indeed wonderful and I would recommend reading or listening to in order.
GOOD STORY LINE AND I LOVE THE NARRATOR. LORDS FALL TAKES US BACK TO THE COUPLE IN FIRST BOOK (PIA AND DRAGOS).
YES. EASLAKE DOES A EXCELLENT JOB ON BOTH MALE AND FEMALE VOICES. A MUST IF YOU ASK ME FOR ANY AUDIOBOOK THAT USES JUST ON NARRATOR.
I absolutely love this series. This book was worth the 1 credit. I love the characters. I find myself laughing at the wit of the characters. I cannot wait for the mext book. please hurry.
