Publisher's Summary

Now that Jev is no longer obligated to marry a manipulative noblewoman, Zenia can finally pursue a relationship with him. But there’s something else she must deal with first. She’s learned that the magical dragon-tear gem she wears around her neck is linked to a living dragon, one that is being held prisoner and tortured. 

Zenia owes her life several times over to the creature. She must set aside personal desires and lead a team to the distant and dangerous continent where the dragon is imprisoned. 

But it took someone - or something - very powerful to capture such a great creature in the first place. Zenia, Jev, and their friends may not have the magic or might necessary to free their scaled ally. If they fail, the dragon will be enslaved forever by a cruel master, and Zenia and Jev may never see their homeland again.

I love Lindsay

After completing Dragon Tear my heart was broken. Lindsay, my love, are you going to end all of these beloved characters? Are there a possibility of additional works in process? I need to know about the children and support characters children. I need more hilarious banter
BTW Vivienne ,as always, does a great job. Need more! Now going through Dragon Tear withdrawals

Another slam dunk for Buroker.

Lindsay and Vivienne are DEFINITELY a dynamic duo. As always Lindsay's 5 book series build in momentum with each one so by the the 5th you can't put it down or stop listening. Vivienne always does a stellar job differentiating between the characters to the point the characters come alive and even the male characters you don't realize it's a women's voice talking. My 1st Buroker series was Dragon Blood and fell in love with her since and have never regretted buying credits to finish a series, especially if Vivienne is the narrator. There's just something about her voice and performance that ticks all the boxes for me. I also appreciate that Lindsay usually writes in a 5 book format: enough books that the story can get really interesting and in depth but not so long that the meat of the premise gets lost.

What an amazing adventure

This is the final book in the series and what a series it is…just plain awesome. It is the best book of the series and that is saying something because they were all outstanding. The journey undertaken in this book is full of action but has a soft romantic side as well. I am just sorry the series ended, but I say that for all of Lindsay Buroker series yet it is true. Thank you for the adventure Lindsay Buroker.

Thrilling Adventure to save a Dragon!!

In this final part of the Agents of the Crown series, Zenia must find out what the origins of her Dragon Tear are, having spoken to the Elvish Princess, who has told her that there is a young Dragon linked to the Dragon Tear and that he is not only being held captive, but is being tortured. Zenia decides hat she has to help her Dragon, given that it has saved her life, and Jev’s, not to mention countless other lives, and it is not acceptable that she remain imprisoned and being tortured. Jev of course doesn’t hesitate in joining Zenia, and to her surprise, she is joined by Cutter as well. Unfortunately, Lornysh can not join them as he is the new Elvish Ambassador to Korvann, having agreed to take on the post at the end of book 4, and now having too many responsibilities to leave. He does however provide the group with many different things, items and advice to guide them on their journey.
Joining the group of course is Rhi and Hydal, Jev’s Zyndar friend, as well as Rhi’s new boyfriend. Also joining the crew are a pair of former Earth Order Monks, having been recently dismissed from that Order. The two, known as Horti and Borti, are hilarious additions to the party, with a range of different unique characteristics that I won’t spoil here.
This is a rather intense and dangerous mission, a lot more serious than what the team has previously been involved in as they head to the land of Izstara, where the Trolls, Orcs and Ogres live, and the addition of Horti and Borti as not only hired muscle, but also as comic relief as a part of the story, makes for a bit of light-hearted fun on an adventure that is full of dark tidings.
Book 5 by far out does the rest of the series with the world building, as the land of Izstara is equally fascinating and terrifying for the crew as they adventure forth to find the imprisoned Dragon. The descriptive work of not just the land itself, which is vastly different to what we have seen in previous books, but the inhabitants is outstanding. There is such a distinct change in the look and feel of everything, a danger in every aspect of where the group move, with both those that live there, the Orcs, Ogres and Trolls, but the land itself, the very creatures that roam the land, all wanting to kill or eat the group.
As they set out on this voyage, there is a mix between an Indiana Jones style feel, and a Jungle Cruise, as the must traverse not only the sea to get to Izstara, but then a dangerous river journey to get near to the Dragons location.
It is a thrilling adventure, full of all sorts of new dangers, something very different to the first four books, making for a really fantastic read.
The character work continues to be exceptional, the growing connection between Zenia and Jev is explored in greater depth in this book, with elements of romance, and some humour as Jev struggles to understand Zenia. Added to that is the budding relationship between Rhi and Hydal, which is just hilarious for the most part with Hydal trying to be a perfect Zyndar gentleman, and Rhi being confused by why a male doesn’t ‘want’ her. This is the final book in the series, and Buroker does a wonderful job of cleverly making sure that the many questions and story lines that have come up about each of the characters, from Lornysh and his past, to Zenia and Jev and everything that is happening with them, to Jev’s cousin’s and other Family members. Each of the different story arcs is nicely wrapped up, so that you are not left wondering about particular things, which is something that I really love about this Author’s writing style.
Overall, this is not just another part in the series, but a thrilling adventure that provides a lot of closure to aspects to various aspects of the series, whilst still leaving it open if Buroker ever wants to return to this Universe to continue writing. This final part is by far the best part in the series, showing off each of the characters and how they have grown from the first book, to now, and just how much they have changed.
If you have read any of the series, then this is a book that should make you hurry up and finish the rest so you can read it, as it is brilliant. If you haven’t read this series, then you are missing out, and if you love a great fantasy, with some exceptional characters, then this is the series for you!!
Vivienne Leheny is a wonderful Narrator with a clear and concise voice that is easy to understand and very easy to listen to. She has a wonderful range of voices, both Male and Female, and she does a very clear set of character voices so you can easily tell who is talking. On top of that, Leheny does a brilliant job of capturing the emotional state of her characters so you really understand what they are going through, whether that be sad, happy, angry, frustrated, etc.
Overall, Leheny does a really brilliant job with the Narration, making this well worth listening to!!

A Swash Buckling Adventure!

This series of books didn't disappoint. If you liked the Hertitage of Power Series and the Dragon Blood series you will like these. All series have a heroine a hero and some other interesting personalities that compliment each other. This series was a little slower than previous series but still great to read!

A Fitting End ... or is it?

Jev has had a lucky escape from marrying his father's choice and is free to pursue a relationship with Zenia.

Zenia has learned that her dragon tear is tied to a young dragon being held captive and tortured, so heads off with Jev and co to free her.

This is the last book in the series Agents of the Crown. It was a bit of a surprise purchase, but once I purchased the first book, I couldn't stop and I have enjoyed them all
