Good Story

Where does Her Dragon to Slay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was good

What did you like best about this story?

The joking among the friends

What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

she did a good job bringing out the characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

it had a good storyline. I could listen to it in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

I would like to see more action. It had some action and some romance. It seem like more romance than action. I would like to see a balance of both. But i enjoyed enough that i will read more in this series.

A Good Start on Dragon Series!

If you could sum up Her Dragon to Slay in three words, what would they be?

Her Dragon to Slay was a decent story, and good start on a dragon shifter series. The three words I would use to describe this story are:

Sassy ~ female character

Sexy ~ male dragon shifters

Suspenseful ~ suspenseful plot with some twist

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting aspect to the story was the characters. I especially loved the bond and banter between the male dragon shifters. You can easily determine each book will be about different dragon shifter, and we get to know some of these shifters.

The least interesting aspect was the dialogue between the hero and heroin. It just do not seem well developed; however, I suspect as the story progresses, each book will be improved.

Which character – as performed by Hollie Jackson – was your favorite?

All the male dragon shifter characters were great, but my favorites were Rayne, Aiden, Royce, and Lance. I hope future stories will be released in audio so we get to hear each of their stories.

Any additional comments?

I bought this audiobook on a whispersync deal, and felt I got good story at a great price; however, the story did not "wow" me so I ended up giving it an overall 3.5 stars.

I liked the characters and plot enough, if future stories are released in audiobook format, I would definitely consider getting them, especially if they are on sale.

Erotic and Beautiful!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Oh My Goddess, what a amazing book to listen to. I really do recommend this weather you've read the it or not. There has been some changes made you don't want to miss out on. I'm not telling either.....

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love me some dragon man Rayne, but..... Kyndel really rocks. I have to say that she is my favorite character. She's not some Barbie wanna be. Kyndel is a curvy, sassy, what you see is what you get kind of woman.

Which character – as performed by Hollie Jackson – was your favorite?

I don't think I can pick just one. Ms. Jackson brought each character alive, each with their own style and personality.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Kyndel couldn't turn away from the wounded man on the sidewalk. Her compassion won out over the possibility of danger.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed hearing my favorite couple come to life.

Rushed

I like insta love. I like books where the drama is something other than the love story. This book has that. However, every part of the story is rushed. They have no bonding, no actual learning about each other and yet he states repeatedly that “this is one of the hundreds of things I love about you” when he first says this he know maybe 3 things. I don’t think that they’d even had a full conversation at this point. There isn’t any actual character development for the two main characters. It just fell flat for me.

Can't wait for the rest of these.

Julia Mills is one of my favorite authors. I am ecstatic that not only do I get to read these book but, now listen to them. Hollie Jackson captures all the sass of the Heroin while communicating the panty melting personality of the Hero.

Can it get any more cheesier?

I am surprised by the high reviews of this book. The narrator in my opinion did a horrid job. She sounds as though she is being forced to read the book. The male characters sound like women with deep voices, and that is me being generous. The book itself has no spark. I am sorry but to go from saving a guy near death to boinking him 3 hours later.....and profess not to be a loose woman. You have to be joking to expect the reader to believe that especially when the female has some scars form the past! Even if this was an erotic book I would still give it 1 star... I am sorry the sex scenes were not that creative!

The Beginning of an Epic Journey!!!

This book was fantastic! The way that Julia describes things is so vivid and amazing, that you believe it all, right along with the main character. The Narrator does some fun accents, and voices, and really brings life to the story. The Dragons are beautiful, and powerful, and complex, and all of the mythology is so thorough, and fascinating, that I can't get enough! I'm glad this is a series, and if you give it a chance, I guarantee you will be too.

Amazing Dragon Guard !!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I most definitely would. Why? Having read the books in this fantastic series hearing them now via someones voice its just amazing. It brings the story alive.

What other book might you compare Her Dragon to Slay to and why?

To be honest I have read many dragon shifter books but this book and series are different from any that I have read.

What does Hollie Jackson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings life. When reading yes you go to another world but having someone read it with voice differences brings all the characters front and center

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh yes and I can not wait to listen to more in this series.

Any additional comments?

Loved It !

Lackluster story. Hideous narration.

The storyline was fairly anemic, and the narrator's tone, pace, and inflection was painful to listen to. As far as the accents go, well she tried.

Her Dragon to Slay, Julia Mills

I love this series and now I can enjoy it with a great narrator in Hollie Jackson, who bought the characters to life for me!
This is a great start to a wonderful series.
The Dragon Guard are dragon shifters protecting their species from vol black magic welders and the hunters who are determined to eliminate them all. Rayne is Commander of their troop and the first to find his mate, this is their story.
I thoroughly enjoyed both the story and the narrator, so glad that the series is going to be available on Audible.

Could not get the speed right for my listening ple

Could not get the speed right for my listening pleasure. 1 was too slow, 1.25 was too fast. Listened at 1 but found it a bit dragging. Loved listening to this book as it has been a couple of years since I read this book. BOOK REVIEW A good start to a new series. Kyndel has a great attitude to life thanks to her grandmother raising her. When a strange man basically falls at her feet her life takes a very different turn. Rayne is the commander of the Dragon Guards, an elite force that protects the last of the dragons from extinction. When his dragon senses his mate and that she is in danger he flies in to protect her. A very good story with an interesting bunch of characters that we meet in this first book of a series that will be very entertaining. I have owned this series for ages and even though this first book is quite tame I know how the series develops and always enjoy rereading it. I loved the background story that is going to permeate in the background about Andrew who is a fellow dragon, captured, imprisoned and driven mad.
