Publisher's Summary

Get ready to meet Jase, Kieran, Zade, and Issik, the last dragon descendants in this reverse harem.

Olivia Campbell’s life gets turned upside down when her mother suddenly passes away. Left with only a stepdad who despises her, she turns to the streets. Penniless and alone in the Chicago winter, how much worse can it get?

She is about to find out.

A chance encounter with a stranger who has the most breathtaking violet eyes changes her world. Just a warm smile and a quick flash of dimples is all it takes to capture her interest in Jase Dior. Olivia wonders if her luck has finally returned.

She soon finds out Jase collects things - pretty girls, to be precise. A glimpse of her sultry honey hair in an alley excites him. He must have her. And he isn’t taking "No" for an answer.

Jase sweeps Olivia off the streets to the Veil Isles - a mystical and hidden land uncharted by any mortal and ruled by the only dragon coven left in the world.

What the heck did she get herself into?

Four dragons. One headstrong heroine. And a reverse-harem fantasy romance that could change the fate of a dying race. 

Stealing Tranquility will transport fans of Twilight, A Shade of Vampire, and Shadowhunters to an enchanted world unlike any other. Prepare for a unique spin on the lore you love - and an adventure that is as thrilling as it is unexpected.

I Can't get into it

I mainly downloaded it because it is about dragons and vanessa moyen. I tried getting into it but it's not too interesting. I can't fall in love with the characters. Maybe because I'm not a fan of one girl to 4 guys? also, the magical world lacks wow factor. I like feeling excited over new magical world but I'm really disappointed on this world.

Very Entertaining

A funny and entertaining listen. A reverse harem reading that is well done and imaginative. I hope book 2 is as entertaining and endearing.

underage girl with four men... NO!

I get the appeal of a reverse harem but not with a 17 year old. please add these things to the description.

Captivating

First off Vanessa Moyen is my absolute favorite narrator. I have read 3 other book series that she has narrated because I love the way she portrays the characters and gives each one a unique personality. I'm extremely excited to start the second book. The descriptions of every aspect had me feeling I like I was there at the castle in the Isles witnessing everything in real life. Completely mystified. I had just finished Dragons and Druids (another great book) before starting this book and at first was concerned that they'd be too similar but Dragon Descendants didnt take long to transform a life of dragons all it's own. If you like dragons, witches, drama, and romance filled with adventure and descriptive visuals then this is the book for you!

I can't say I was impressed

This story has potential. There is a lot of back and forth with the protagonist. More depth would be a benefit to this story. This is the first book by this author that I have read. I might give her other work a try, but I will not be continuing this series.
The plot is there and intriguing, just not the writing style for me.

awesome start to a good book😍🤔☺

Olivia's mom died suddenly and now she lives on the because her step-father kicks her out. She just wants to get through her senior year of high school and keep her secret of being homeless. One night Olivia literally runs into Jace, a mysterious, attractive stranger that she wants nothing to do with- a stranger that ends up kidnapping her and bringing her to a new realm where dragons are real, and she can't leave.

This was so much fun! It was an incredibly fast read/listen less than five hours on audio so I ended up listening to it in one day since I enjoyed listening to it and I wanted to know what would happen next. The pacing was engaging and Olivia seemed so real to me, even in the face of some crazy unrealistic situations. I cant wait to read/hear the next book

Can't wait for more

This was such a great book to listen to while the narrator's voice was a tad annoying in a few spots I was able to get over it due to how well the storyline flows. I enjoyed how we get to see the characters grow and develop throughout the book, and can not wait to read/listen to the next book.

Brilliant!

This book is brilliantly entertaining, it had me laughing loudly 😀. There is a hilarious clumsy, sassy heroine and 4 super sexy men/dragons. The narrator brings the story to life with different voices and gets the sass spot on. I loved this book and can't wait to listen to the next. I need this series in my life!

Loved it!

I don’t think there’s anything about this book I disliked, J.L has a great take on dragon shifters and unlike some RH books, everything has a nice pace and isn’t trashy at all. Can’t wait to listen to the next one!

A really pleasant surprise.

So the premise that I ordered this under was something that I didn't really thing would work as a NA novel. I'm very happy to say I was wrong. I enjoyed this novel over a long drive, I found Olivia to be likeable and relatable, all 4 heroes have their charms and the author worked really hard not to make one stand out too much more than the others.

It's difficult not to spoil it, but I will say that halfway through I bought all 4 books on kindle and now I'm at the end I've already bought the next one! Definitely worth it for any paranormal fans out there

Enchanting Dragons & World

This was a great start to the Dragon Descendants series! After Olivia’s mother dies, her stepfather kicks her out, and she has no where to turn except for the streets of Chicago. She encounters Jase, a handsome man with vibrant violet eyes, and he whisks her away to his home, Veil Island. Jase, Issik, Kieran, and Zade are the last remaining dragon shifters and Olivia is their only hope to stop the curse placed by Tiana, an evil witch, or else they’re all doomed. Oliva has a loving, clumsy, and fierce personality that I grew to love and she doesn’t follow orders from anyone. I enjoyed watching each of her relationships grow within her harem and the different type of dragon and personalities each one had. Issik is an ice dragon that is bitter, intelligent, and cold; Jase is a tranquility dragon, the leader of the four, scouts the women out, and tends to overlook bad qualities; Kieran is a poisonous dragon that is cocky and playful; Zade is a golden god with an extreme temper. The world building was very descriptive and enchanting to where I felt like I was transported into the Veil Island. I’m still confused why the other girls weren’t returned to their home once the four dragons realized that they weren’t the girl to break the curse... maybe the series will eventually explain that? Although I enjoyed this book, I hope that the heat of the series grows beyond kissing since it’s a reverse harem.
Vanessa did a really good job with this narration. I liked the different voices that she used for each character, but one of the male voices sounded like it kept switching accents. She spoke at a steady pace and her performance kept me entertained until the end!

Dragon descendants 1

The cover and title got my interest from the start. Was a little unsure about it starting off in a normal city wondering how the story was going to work dragons in. Shape shifting and portals is the answer and you don't stay in the city long. This is a only the start of the story that continues in the other books, Olivia has the attention of all the dragon's and they are all drawn to her and she can't help being drawn to them... I have enjoyed this book and would happily listen to the others and find out what potential Olivia may have for breaking the curse and what is going to happen with the four dragons.

Impressed

I really like Vanessa Moyen's reading of this book. Though there was a few times when she was speaking as Jase that I thought Olivia was still speaking other than that the story is good not what I usually read but I liked it
