Mede of the Draig knows three things for a fact: As the only female dragonshifter of her people, she is special. She can kick the backside of any man. And she absolutely doesn't want to marry. Mede has spent a lifetime trying to prove she's as strong as any male warrior. Unfortunately, being the special, rare creature she is, she's been claimed as the future bride to nearly three dozen Draig - each one confident that when they come for her hand in marriage, fate will choose them.

If you could sum up The Dragon's Queen in three words, what would they be?

fierce, funny, fantastic

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

Yes it's such a fun listen and great read

Any additional comments?

I love this series and Michelle Pillow's books. This audible was funny and I enjoyed it.
If you've read or listened to any of the other books, this puts a few things in perspective ;)
I really liked Mede and Llyr together. I felt that their romance wasn't rushed and that love happened not because of sex, but because they got to know one another. It was interesting to learn a bit about Attor and how this book was influencing to the others. I enjoyed the other characters,and the roles they played.
I enjoyed listening to Mason Lloyd. I always enjoy listening to him and his lulling voice. I find his voice choices for each character entertaining, although different than what I hear, I think he does a great job

Riona Grey lives life on her own terms, traveling wherever the next spaceship is flying and doing what she must in order to get by. When her luck turns sour, she finds herself on a bridal ship heading to a marriage ceremony. A planet full of dragon shifters seeking mates wasn’t exactly what she had in mind as a final destination.

Like the others in this series, this was an awesome book. I was able to read it, and listen to Melissa Barr do an enjoyable read of the book. I must admit, I enjoyed listening to her voice and giving the already animated characters such great voices. A great story needs a great voice and I think she did a good job. I loved reading and listening to Riona's and Mirek' story. I found it funny, erotic, a bit suspenseful and just a great book. An unlucky bride and an impatient groom... I can always depend on the Draig men and their women to give me a story that'll wet my appetite. I would recommend this series to anyone wanting a fun read or even a fun listening of a great book.

Would you listen to The Stubborn Lord again? Why?

I would listen to this again because I enjoy listening to this narrator also because it was such an amazing book. I found this book funny, adventurous, romantic and purely entertaining. The story itself was entertaining, but what made me laugh from beginning to end was the narrators female voice (Kendall'). In my head everyone sounded different of course, but I enjoyed all of his variations of the characters voices and would gladly listen to him recite a grocery list 😊

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

This was a book I actually finished in one sitting. I put it on and began doing chores and time went by blissfully fast.

I loved listening to a story I already read more than once and I loved reading and listening to Kendall's and Alek's story. Pairing and awesome story and a talented narrator made one hell of an audible ☺

No one at the Federation seems inclined to do anything about the threat and suddenly it's up to her to save a whole planet.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to a friend only if they are unable to read the book themselves. This book is a part of an amazing series and if you can't read it yourself, then listening to someone else do it is a better alternative.

Did Melissa Barr do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I found that I enjoyed her voice, but of course she didn't sound how they did in my head. I felt that she did a good job reading overall and even voicing the characters and making appropriate inflections and attitude for the characters, but I could not completely fall in love with the pairing of her voice and this story.

Any additional comments?

This is the 5th book in an amazing series. It's a little shorter than the other 4 but still packs a lot of excitement, fun, and romance between the pages. Bron is a serious hero but oh so lovable as only Draig men can be. Aeron had a one track mind in saving the planet, but with a sexy, alpha, male as a mate how can you not get a little side tracked. I found this story to be funny, adventurous, hot, and a great read and an enjoyable listen. I loved their story years ago and enjoyed it just as much now.

Any additional comments?

This book was long awaited and so I enjoyed listening to the audio version. At first I wasn't too sure about the narrators voice but she grows on you. I enjoyed her performance and thought she did a well enough job. What really made this book four stars for me, is the story and the amazing characters. I will admit the mis communication and bits of their relationship gets annoying, but find me a book or any love story (real or fiction) where this does not happen. They work through their issues and have one of the best love stories I've ever read. Pia and Zoran make one bad@$$ couple and I love them and the fierceness and comedy their book brings.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I'm torn between yes and a no. I found the story and the reader likable, but there were times I was unable to sit through and continue. Don't get me wrong, I liked the story and Mason Lloyd's performance, it's just the timing of trying to listen was not the best for me.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Aww man this again is quite a bit of a challenge. I stopped quite a few times listening to this, but I cannot come up with a thought atm in which I could have a made an enjoyable story even more enjoyable.

What aspect of Mason Lloyd’s performance would you have changed?

Nothing comes to mind. I enjoy his voice and I've gone on to listen to other books performed by him as well :)

Any additional comments?

I stopped quite a few times listening to this, but don't misunderstand, this book was actually a good listen.. First of all the names of the characters are just great, in my opinion. I love the name Vladimir (the great power) and Eden (place of pleasure) and just pairing lovers witch such names to my liking :) . Although there were times I wished I could have banged the hero and heroines head together, I really enjoyed listening to their medieval story. Vlad is a bit on the rough side (his accent was just yes!). Vlad came off a bit harsh, and brutish but this monster was quite likable to me :). Eden was a likable heroine and I found her strength and confidence to be some of her stronger characteristics. All in all, good book :)

If you could sum up Dark Prince: Dragon Lords Anniversary Edition in three words, what would they be?

Yum! , Exciting, Funny

Who was your favorite character and why?

This is hard but I'll say Olena Peyton one of the best space pirates of all time. She is funny. I love her personality. This is a woman who knows how to get by on the streets, well out in space and stuff. She is smart, confident, funny, and just awesome :) ,and I love that she isn't some heroine that in the first chapter, you get annoyed with and hopes she gets caught and killed. Blasted space monkeys!!

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

I have not, but I'd love to now. I like his voice. I also enjoy the voices he gave the characters. His voice is soothing, tempting and just made the awesome story a delectable listen. :) He didn't sound exactly as this story did when I read the printed version, but then again who does?, but he did read it in a way that I still ended up melting in my chair

Would you consider the audio edition of Perfect Prince: Dragon Lords Anniversary Edition to be better than the print version?

I've read this book before and received the audible book for a review. I loved the book. Who wouldn't?! I found Libby Hudson to be a pleasant enough to listen to. She's quite funny and brings individualism to each character she voices. I would prefer the printed version just because in my head the characters sound different and I just enjoy holding a book whiles reading.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Perfect Prince: Dragon Lords Anniversary Edition?

There were so many things in this book I found memorable (pretty much the whole thing). It captures you from the beginning, not only the romance and graphics ;). To me the most memorable was how in the beginning you could see how she was strong and yet a bit shy, she grew and and you were able to listen to this progress, especially when she was able to stand up for herself and you realized just how much stronger she had become. I love how with the anniversary edition, their story got better and expanded a whole lot more.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I like that Libby Hudson gave each character their individualism. I also liked her voice. It's pleasing. There was very little I didn't like such as the voice she gave Olek. I think this is because, in my head he sounded completely different.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

YES! The moment they stood together and she accepted him. See had wanted someone simple and found out that her guy was actually a prince. That made me chuckle. Once she found out that instead of a nobody, that she got a somebody, she is far from pleased. It moved me to see how they got past that and she was able to fall in love. I got to listen to their trials and then their triumphs, who would not be moved?

Any additional comments?

Funny, romantic, beautiful
