Struggled with 3 chapters and 45 min for a 15 min event. I forgot author has that tendancy. This is such romance fantasy, rather than thriller. Not for me.

It's been four years since Gary Leger slew a dragon and returned home from Faerie, and almost half a year since his father died. Ever since that fateful day, he's been aching to take his wife, Diane, leave Earth behind, and go back to Faerie to see his friends and get away from it all. His friends wish he'd come back, too - and fast. The threat of war looms over the land like a dark cloud.

What did you like best about Dragonslayer's Return? What did you like least?

Like the premise.
Didn't like the narration as much. "Window and orphans" instead of widows and orphans. "Corpse of trees" instead of copse of trees. Even if it's a misspelling in the script, I would hope the narrator, editor or producer would catch that and do a retake.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul Boehmer?

Maybe. Just to see if the trend of mispronunciation continues.

Do you think Dragonslayer's Return needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I think it would be a better story by not returning. Otherwise Gary should just stay.
