Publisher's Summary

What's hotter than an alien with scales? An alien with wings and scales, not to mention a hot body.

At 457 Preor years old, Jarek sen Claron is a dragon ready for his final flight into the skies. This voyage to Earth as the War Master of the third fleet will be his final assignment. Once he has helped his fellow Preors secure human mates, he will return to Preor before the madness of loneliness overtakes his mind.

That all changes when he meets Melissa. Human Melissa with her sparkling eyes, bright smile, and body that would make any hot-blooded male drool. Unfortunately, she never registered as a Preor mate hopeful. No matter, the Knowing stretches between them and there is no way she can resist him. Until she does.

Jarek wishes to give her the choice to mate him, while everything inside him screams to take Melissa beneath his wing, now. No choosing necessary.

But should he draw her to his side when his enemies are circling? Many males do not believe the son of a Preor mass murderer deserves to have a mate. Can he survive the coming battles? Or will he die without tasting sweet Melissa's lips?

3.5 Stars

Celia Kyle is a favorite of mine. I enjoy her novels and this is another decent listen. I don't want the 3.5 stars to dissuade you from checking it out, it didn't get 5 stars based on technicalities. The story is good but it's not overly original. Let's face it, though, we don't always pick up a romance story because we're looking for something innovative. Sometimes you just want a good alpha male in whatever fantasy form you prefer - wolf, bear, alien, dragon, or in this case both an alien and a dragon. Jarek is a good alpha male. My bigger problem is that it was super short. I felt like I wanted to dig deeper and get more out of the novel. I wanted more tension and conflict as well as better explanations for some of the things going on.

The narration was good. There are two narrators and they alternate chapters. It is good in the sense that you don't ever really zone out on the book, a change in voice brings you back. I think I would have preferred, however, if they would have each read all of the male or female lines in one voice.

Overall, decent but not groundbreaking. I just would have liked a little more meat to the story.

Alien Weredragons

This was definitely a different and interesting take on alien love/ soul mates. Jarek the Preor Dragon spends a long life with no mate; thinking he'd never get a mate until he lays eyes on human Melissa. Unfortunately, Melissa isn't exactly willing to be a mate. I loved the concept of "the knowing" It's like Love at first site means having the internet in your head. My issue with this one is that Jarek spends 90% of the novel hurt and unable to do anything. However he redeems himself at the end. I look forward to seeing what happens next as the Dragons of Preor were left in a very precarious situation at the end of the story.

Even though there was an omniscient voice, there were two different narrators. I think it was a good idea. It added more dimension to the story. Todd and Mandy both gave great performances.

Okay story

This audiobook was just so-so for me for a couple of reasons. There were a lot of mention of other characters that I didn't understand until I went to Amazon and looked up the author's other series. This is a spin-off of another series I found out. The storyline was average in my opinion and predictable, but still enjoyable. The narration was well performed.

Yes, a quality light

This book is a Yes if you want light reading/listening with quality writing & editing. This is also a quality recording if you prefer audio. Very happy with both the male & female narrators.

OMG! My HEA was damaged!

Spoiler alert. The story would have been a decent one but.... I have listened to two books of this series and am on the third in hopes that I would find at least one story that didn't leave the hero without his dragon, abilities, or being left unable to ever shift. Sadly....no luck. I just can't believe that the Hero dragon Shifters in this series start out as healthy masculine dragons but all become damaged and lose their Dragon after a skirmish. SERIOUSLY!

I'm definitely getting the rest of the sires.

I liked how the voices switched with the points of view. It's a really good first book and there's no cliffhanger!

A Good Adventure

The narrators were simply fantastic, very clear and great emotion in the tones. The story is engaging, adventure and who doesn't love dragons. Can't wait for more.

Kinda boring

Mostly just the main character dealing with his injuries and feeling sorry for himself. Not much romance and not much more to the story. Overall disappointing.

lost

This is obviously an offshoot of another season. There were way too many characters introduced early and references to events that are confusing if not heard or read the other books. short story too, over two chapters were dedicated to the one and only love scene, too much!
