Publisher's Summary

We survived the land of the Witch’s Reign - that much is true. But our arrival home is far from welcome.

My idiot brother has taken it upon himself to ride off in search of a mythical healer, someone who might help him walk again. Assuming she doesn’t eat him first. Because she’s a dragon and happens to reside in the deepest reaches of the Dragon’s Ground. Like I said, idiot.

I’d go after him myself, but his leaving is not the only problem I face. My mentor has forbidden me to leave the safety of the Stockyards. Her reasoning?

That I am too weak to weather the coming storms.

With my pride wounded in more ways than one, I must gather the few allies’ I have left. My ex-husband's new girlfriend at the top of the list and a goat bleating Satyr.

FML.

If I’m lucky I’ll find a small dragon and a Jinn whose blue eyes still haunt my dreams along the way.

Buckle up, buttercup, this ride is about to take a seriously unforeseen twist.

Home run once again!

Dragon’s Ground is a must listen for fantasy lovers! Action, suspense, battles, death, and friendship abound in this story! The story had me yelling at the characters, laughing at their dialogues, and crying when they weeped. I didn’t want to stop listening! The characters are believable and likable and the storyline has plenty of action, suspense, drama, and a little heat. I am so looking forward to book 3. Dragon’s Ground can be enjoyed as a standalone but you should really enjoy book 1 first in order to keep up on the events and characters! The narrator did a freakin’ awesome job with providing unique voices for each character, the right tone for the scenes, and speed of reading!

Shannon Mayer knocks it out of the park!

If you loved Witch's Reign, you won't want to miss Dragon's Ground! It's a wild ride that keeps you on the edge of your seat and loving every minute of it!

Zam and Lila are such remarkable, inspirational, and well developed characters. They are both thought to have been born differently and don't fit in with the status quo. As a result, others don't always treat them kindly and though they struggle with not feeling good enough, they still work to better themselves and persevere.

During a difficult time in my life, Shannon Mayer's characters help inspire me to keep perservering and pushing on. I cannot thank her enough for that.

The narrator does a fabulous job as well!

Shannon Mayer has done it again. This wonderful series is so unique and interesting, I could not put it down. I am blow away by the characters and almost feel like they are a part of my family.

The story just keeps getting better!

Book 2 of Shannon Mayer's Desert Cursed series, Dragon's Ground, is even better than the first. We learn more about Zamira's family and background, which helps in understanding some of her actions and reactions. The characters are likable and have layers that are slowly being revealed to us. Shannon Mayer is a wonderful writer. Her descriptions are on point and it is fun and fascinating seeing how the characters grow and develop. The audio is fast paced and fun. Narrator, Lauren Fortgang, does a nice job making the listener stay involved and in touch with the story. I'm very much looking forward to the next book in the series!

I did not think I could love Zam any more

Well, the start into this series was head on and full force into Zam’s crazy life. She met her new best friends and I thought it could barley get any more complicated or exciting. I was wrong. The second book was even more captivating for me than the first. Zam and her gang showed even more strength and vulnerability, endearing themselves even further to me. I love good series material and to dive into another world entirely, this book delivered and I’m ready for more! There are so many obstacles and tasks still ahead and I will now scurry off to the next one. Because I am hooked!

Lightening can stick twice.

Witches Reign left me dying for more and Dragon's Ground did not disappoint! Zam's story continues as she once again finds herself willing to risk it all for friends and family. As Zam sets out to save her brother, she must reevaluate everything she thought she knew. Shannon Mayor's style of mixing witty humor with nonstop action is seamlessly brought to life by Lauren Fortgang's narration. This book was a hilarious adventure I just couldn't stop listening to! I can't wait for the next.

Enjoyable

Second in series tend to be hit or miss. This was a hit. I enjoyed seeing more of the world as well as the beginning of what promises to be excellent character growth. There were several things in this book mentioned in passing that I can't help but wonder if it's a subtle foreshadowing. This book had some great Indiana Jones like action, and some new characters were introduced that may or may not be trustworthy.
