What made the experience of listening to Lure of the Dragon the most enjoyable?

Story was engaging and perfectly paced; it was not rushed, nor did it ever get tedious. All around a great story and audiobook.

What other book might you compare Lure of the Dragon to and why?

Runs comparative to E. Anderson, R. Dixon, and even some of Milly Taiden's work.

Have you listened to any of Kelsey Osborne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I'm an avid audiobook listener and have heard Kelsey Osborne's work previously. She does a great job and is easy to listen to.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I simply enjoyed listening to it, which is exactly what I was looking for. It is a feel good, paranormal erotic novel, that remains tactful but engaging.

Any additional comments?

The book is good enough to want to listen to the entire series, which I have now completed. I am going back to leave the reviews, but they whole series is great, and if you enjoyed this story, you will enjoy the rest of them. Patiently waiting for the next book in series to become available on Audible!

was ok but not her best work

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

no.

Story was okay but the narrator was awful

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

ending was not great. Story could have ended in many better ways that would have encouraged the reader to seek other Amira Rain titles, but it just didn't do that.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narrator was terrible. She has an immature voice and a manner of speaking that sounds like a teenage girl complaining about something. She mispronounced words that my 10 yr old son knows how to pronounce. English might possibly be her second language...or maybe third.

Do you think Her Lion Guard: The Complete Series Box Set needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Only if the follow up book is written with the same mindset that Amira wrote the other books she has written. Honestly, this is the worst book of hers that I have read.

Any additional comments?

If this is your first Amira Rain book...this is NOT a normal representation of what her books normally are like. This is the worst story written by Amira Rain that I have read. Give her another chance and read ANY other book of hers !! You won't believe that it is by the same author. Her books are normally amazing and this book was just very ...bleh...

Narrator is AMAZE-BALLS

Me Donovan is a fantastic writer and her stories are wonderfully engaging, well written, and have developed story lines that veteran and novice readers will both enjoy. However, another amazing skill the author (or publisher) has is the ability to find truly wonderful narrators. The narrator of this whole series is simply wonderful and helps showcase the story. His voice is like butter. Keep him reading and I'll keep buying!!

Best series ever

One of my biggest disappointments in reading ever is the fact that Dara Joy does not write her fabulous books anymore. They are all wonderful, exciting, and are the types of stories that you can read and listen to repeatedly.

Buying a Kenyon book simply never goes wrong...

What made the experience of listening to Dragonbane the most enjoyable?

Story line follows previous books...Story is very good.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My fav is aways the Dark-Hunters and previous Were-Hunters...I'm invested in their story line completely. :)

What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

***The ability to listen at work!***

Any additional comments?

Kenyon books are always a great buy. Some are better than others, but I've read everything that she has written and not one book was "bad". Narraration was smooth.

For new readers, I'd recommend reading the series in order and in print first, and then listening to the story via audible. Buying them in a package deal makes the whole experience better and less expensive.

Pleeeeeeease read reviews! They are right!

OMFG IT WAS HORRENDOUS! I literally had to make myself listen to this sophomoric crap because I promised my sister I would. Retarded story line, redundant, childish, and stupid. Even the sex scenes were lame. It reads like 2 fourteen yr old girls got together with Google word search and wrote a book. Seriously, it's horrible. I was shocked as the book progressed, because it just never gets any better. My only explanation for how this piece of garbage got on the NYTimes best seller list is that the publishing house spent thousands of dollars paying people to buy it and leave good reviews. Don't buy it, you WILL be VERY disappointed.
