The world of Dematr had been locked unchanging for centuries by the Great Guilds, most people living in a world of oil lamps, crossbows, and horse cavalry, the Mechanics reserving to themselves the technology for steam locomotives, rifles, and far-talkers while the Mages treated all others as if they were nothing - until Master Mechanic Mari, dragon slayer and pirate queen, and Master of Mages Alain raised the army of the new day to free their world.

Where does Daughter of Dragons rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Daughter of Dragons is HIGH UP on my list of listens and I'm at 10K read/listen books thus far.

What other book might you compare Daughter of Dragons to and why?

I will go out on a limb and compare it with "Dune." The different characters have strong morality making you feel good about life. Down to earth intelligence within and between each character brings a strong sense of ownership as a reader to plot and purpose of the book.

What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

The performance was solid and let one dissolve into this story easily.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Excellent!

Beauty for Ashes

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-20-11

This was a fine read in many respects. It allowed one to be captured in the spirit of the times while also giving reflections on ones own life and where we sit in nature and relationships. This book as well as the book leading up to this one is a great listen (read) and will this author will do well to continue with this genre/theme.
