Publisher's Summary

The Dragonia Empire strikes another village. 

They struggle to find the resistance and exterminate them. One woman won't stand for it. She unites the villagers, and together they seek the sanctuary of the Resistance.

Zaviana is freed from slavery, only to become a slave to a mercenary who wants to protect her. She desperately wants her freedom, and she wants to convince him to help her bring freedom to all of Kaeldroga.

The Dragonia Empire learns where the resistance is hiding, and this time, they're holding nothing back. The Resistance doesn't have much time. If they don't stop the empire this time, it could be the end...for everyone.

Great segue from first book

I found this book just as interesting as this first one. The characters continue to grow and develop as does the resistance. I was able to listen to this book with my grandchildren and my children in the car which was awesome.

Great read

The only regret I have is not listening to the first book in the series first though the second book stands quite well on its own. I recommend them both

A great series

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

As with book 1, this was a pretty solid fantasy book. I thought it did a great job of following the first book. The story, I felt, really took off in this book. Now that the world is established and the core characters are known, the author does a great job of progressing the story. The narration is also well done. Just like with the last book, he brings the story to life. I definitely think these books can be longer, but they are good, so I would still recommend the series to any fan of the genre. Definitely wanting more.

Pretty mediocre, but still an improvement

First, let me just say that I continue listening to Craig Price's books because I keep seeing the seeds of wonderful stories. They just can't quite deliver on the premise.

Okay, that being said, the narrator has a good, smooth voice with clear pronunciation and great tempo. However, apart from different accents there isn't much variation in his voices. I would have liked to hear a lot more vocal range.

Story-wise, this book was not what I was expecting it to be. I was expecting a direct continuation of the characters we got to know in the first Dragonia book. And while we do eventually get back to them, the first part of this book feels almost like I'm reading the first one again (character on the run, looking for The Resistance but having no idea where to look).

There were a lot of places where we were given a great setup for some rich storytelling, but the majority of the details we're given are about how attractive this character or that is and what features are pleasing to look upon.

I would have liked a lot more lead-in to the battles (set the stage for me, let me feel immersed in it) and a lot more of what's happening in the character's head during the fights instead of strict play-by-play on the action of the fights.

As with previous books, the prose is clumsy at times and a lot (read: A LOT) of the dialogue feels very stilted, especially when the lines are meant to be quippy or sarcastic.

Now, that said, I do recommend giving these books a read/listen. No, they aren't great literature, but there's an interesting story here with some really cool ideas (like the properties of dragon/wyvern blood! So cool!) that I'm glad to have read about.

Discovery

The story revolves around a resistance group that are fighting the evil Lord and his dragons. As they struggle to win they discover new magical talents within themselves. Excellent characters and it kept my interest all the way. The ending was perfect, no cliffhangers (thank you), yet left it open for more great stories.

Such a good book and great narrator

So excited for the second book, hoping like mad it won't let me down....oh, I so did not need to be worried!!! The second book picks up straight where the first one ends and just builds from there. I love that one of the characters sounds a bit like Bane from Batman, total bonus for me. The characters are growing and the relationships are building and I'm loving listening to that. Oh those wyverns!!!! I hope there are more books after this one as I have to know more...I need to come back to this world and these characters.
