Too confused

I have to apologize as I started with this book instead of number one. Which may be why I was both confused and completely unsure what was going on the majority of the time. Most books are best read in a series no matter how much they say stand alone. You just miss some of the little things way to much. I usually love dragon books so sorry I can’t rate it higher as I just could not “get it”. I received this book at no charge in exchange for an honest review. My suggestion is read 1-3 first.

This series just keeps getting better!

The plot thickens the farther this series progresses and keeps getting more interesting. Loved Evander and Callie’s story in this entry. Fantastic narrator too! I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

The Stratham Shifters story continues....

This is a very interesting series. With each subsequent book, it is as though the plot is gaining momentum, like a slowly brewing storm. We are just waiting for all the pieces to line up so the deluge can begin.

This pride of dragons is special. In a paranormal world where dragons are precious about the purity of their bloodlines, these dragons are half breeds. They each have troubled pasts and are highly vulnerable. Add to that they each house their own dragon and that of their mate and the situation gets even more complex. Until they find their fated mate and vessel for the other dragon, they struggle with weakness and ill health.

The overall story line that threads through the series centres on their enemy, the Dragon Council. In each book the council unsuccessfully attempts to disband and eliminate the pride. In the case of Evander, he is a half breed but a stranger to the pride. He is usually kept imprisoned by the council but in this case they have sent him to get rid of the pride. Instead he finds his mate, the potential for his salvation, and family.

The book has a lot going on as the Stratham Shifters saga continues. I do wish there was a little more detail to the story but I can appreciate that this is a quick and easy paranormal audiobook to listen to.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

A great read!

Can the two break the links between their past and survive the future?

I had such fun listening to this book - great storyline, amazing characters and wonderful writing!

The narrator knocks this book right out of the park - so, so good! Great voice for these characters.

Good listen

Good quick listen. I think I might have enjoyed it a bit more if I had listened to other books in the series, just to have a sense of what came before.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for my unbiased review.

Now the fight with the council is heating up.

I received this book in exchange for an honest unbiased review.

This book is what I would call a filler. It fills in the gaps that are happening with our dragons and the council. We know the council has it so bad for the dragons in Stratham because they are hybrids however we don't really know why aside from the fact that they're all hybrids. Yes in history, most people don't like different but the way that the council is going after these dragons it seems as though it is more personal than anything else.

This book exposes one of the reasons aside from the fact that they are are all hybrids. In book 1 Aris we meet Aris who is the king of the hybrid dragons. We learned that he is on the run with a couple of his adopted family and the reader thinks just like all of the characters it is because they are hybrids that they are being hunted. However in this book we learn that Aris is being hunted because his uncle is not too happy about the hybrid dragons and what it means for his reign.

Evander has been held captive the his entire life and he plays a significant role within the Stratham Dragon Clan. Even though Evander plays a significant part with in the fight between the two factions he just seemed kind of entitled. I do understand that he has been held captive for most of if not his entire life however he could not fathom why Aris and his gang did not trust him. He kept thinking that they are not being nice to me, they hate me, I don't understand why they don't trust me, I didn't do anything when in actuality he was sent there to kill Aris. I just felt like he wanted too much when he refused to tell anybody his story. It was not until Aris find him and explains what the issue is did he feel as though he was finally accepted.

The way that this story ended it did seem as though a little more information needed to be given however I have read all of the books in the series so far and all of these books end the same way. It sets up for the next book and the continuation of the fight between the Stratham dragons and the council.

Demon and Familial Murder Plot

Evan dee has been used and tortured by the counsel, king and queen, for years. Tortured by a demo ex he is sent to kill the king of the halfling dragons to free himself. He unexpectedly comes across his mate, Callie, and now is caught on what to do.
Callie believes in magic and unlike the previous three mates readily believes the possibility of magic and dragons.
A twist in who Evander is and what happens to he and his mate marks the ongoing course of this serial. One doesn’t have to read all, as they can stand alone, but why do it? The stories are fun and romantic in finding their mates, all a match perfect for themselves.
The narrator speaks as one would expect of these dragons and keeps the story flowing.
I anticipate each new story..waiting to see where this will go.
