Dareena Sellis is a nobody. The orphaned daughter of a no-name farmer, she toils away as a serving girl at Hallowdale Inn. But fate takes a strange turn the day a dragon huntress comes to town. Suddenly, Dareena is swept off to Dragon’s Keep. She is the dragon’s gift - the one woman chosen by the gods every century to bear children for the future king of Dragonfell. None of the princes are willing to cede Dareena to the other, and yet she must choose, for the enemy is knocking on Dragonfell’s door and Dareena’s decision could either mean the kingdom’s salvation...or annihilation.

Great story and amazing narrators! I was a bit surprised about how detailed the sex "scenes" were; definitely not books for kids. I highly suggest this series.

The Tyrell are a race that love to fight. The more difficult the fight, the better they like it. Every race they find is given the same level of technology and a specific amount of time to exploit it before the Tyrell come back looking for a fight. Humanity is warned by another alien species that the Tyrell are coming, and the race is on to build an Alliance of races strong enough to stand up against an empire whose expansion has been relentless.

The small island of Malaz and its city gave the great empire its name, but now it is little more than a sleepy, backwater port. Tonight, however, things are different. Tonight the city is on edge, a hive of hurried, sometimes violent activity; its citizens bustle about, barring doors, shuttering windows, avoiding any stranger's stare. Because tonight there is to be a convergence, the once-in-a-generation appearance of a Shadow Moon - an occasion that threatens the good people of Malaz with demon hounds and other, darker things....

This is the second time ive listened to this book and ive gone half way through the second book for the second time as well and i have no idea what is going on. you get thrown in with no explanations. and there is no explanations throughout the books. your just hearing what is going on as if the author expects you to know who, what, why. the second book is even worse. you get thrown between so many people that you have NO clue what is going on. maybe later in the series everything comes together but i cant keep listening to books that make no sense.

The return of the mercenary company, the Crimson Guard, could not have come at a worse time for a Malazan Empire exhausted by warfare and weakened by betrayals and rivalries. Indeed, there are those who wonder whether the Empress Laseen might not be losing her grip on power as she faces increasing unrest as conquered kingdoms and principalities sense freedom once more.

Captain Kat Falcone owes her life and career to her former right-hand man, William McElney, and she did everything in her power to make sure he was front and center for a promotion. But now that he has it, she fears he'll have to watch his back. Captain McElney has been assigned to HMS Uncanny - nicknamed Unlucky - a heavy cruiser tainted by the mysterious deaths of two former captains and rumors of mutineers.

The first two books the narrator was lacking in emotion and difference in characters voices but this book she did an amazing job!

Now a celebrated war hero, Captain Kat Falcone is back at the helm of HMS Lightning...and up against near-impossible odds. After an ill-timed outburst almost ends her career, Kat is handed command of a deep-strike mission into enemy space. The objective is to gather intelligence and distract the hostile Theocracy while the Commonwealth prepares its counteroffensive. The chances for success are slim - and for survival even slimmer.

o far this series of books are great. They are entertaining and not overly complicated like some other books based in space are.

My only complaint is the narrator needs to work on her emotions. Most of the characters just sound like robots with slightly different voices. They all sound bored or annoyed little robots. Especially when the captain gives a order and you hear the subordinate respond as if the captain is a moron, that starts to get annoying. She does a decent job with the main character but still lacks emotion. Im trying to get past this so I can continue with the series but it is getting hard when a new voice comes in and it sounds like all the others, little robot doing his/her part in the story.
