Publisher's Summary

Cayda has spent her entire life training to slay a Fire Scale. Now the time has come to leave her dragon-ravaged village behind, march into the Summer Alps, and reap the rewards of a Champion.  But the road between poverty and prosperity is rife with beasts, betrayals, and baser temptations. Sensible Cayda soon discovers she’s not the only Champion with her eye on the prize, or the only one wearing a disguise.  

A Wild and Unremarkable Thing pits girl against dragon in a stunning blend of Greek mythology and medieval lore. Don’t miss the thrilling novella that readers are calling poetic, enchanting, and a must-read for fans of fantasy!

A Wild and Unremarkable Thing

Totally enjoyed this book!Though it was the old 'girl pretends to be boy to slay dragon',it had enough twists to make it new and interesting. Dolcie Webb was a wonderful narator.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

A good book with a fantastic narration

Castleberry's work here is quite good for what it is! Though I'm typically more a fan of longer, more detailed stories, I think that this does very well with the time that it has. With a compelling lead and a rather unexpected antagonist, I found myself enjoying the whole ride. My only gripe is that the final act had some pacing issues, and felt rushed compared with the rest of the book. This is forgivable, however, in the scope of the larger story - especially thanks to the relatively small time commitment.

Of course, no audiobook is complete without a narrator, and Webb does a fantastic job with her interpretation of the material. It's difficult to put my finger on it, exactly, but her vocal style lends itself very well to the fantasy genre. It feels very much like she is remembering the story herself and telling it to a friend, rather than just reading from a page. I think her performance was what helped to make the experience as good as it was.

Fire Scale Dragons Fantasy

A very good story. It is a little over 4 hours so it is a good quick listen. Considering the lentgh of this story, a lot is covered in a short time. A women who is forced to dress and act like a man, ight beast, Fire Scale, God of Death, fighting, even a little romance.

This is a well written book.

The narration was excellent. It was a very easy listen.

I received this bookj in exchange for an honest review.
