Publisher's Summary

War makes strange bedfellows.

I, Gaius Domitus, one-eyed rebel dragon king of the Provinces, know that better than most, since I have to fight off half my ungrateful family on a regular basis to keep law and order here in my lands. But I never expected to have to consort with a barbarian human woman. Kachka is beautiful, if you like them fierce - and of course I do. But she keeps complaining about how spoiled and decadent I am and how a feared Daughter of the Steppes has no time for foolish dragons. I think she likes my eye patch, though. It is quite dashing. With death always at our tails, we take our passion like we take our allies. As they say, love the barbarian you're with.

    "disappointments"

    My issue lies in the performance. The stories is fun and good, I had read it before and wanted to enjoy the audio as well. I'd put it off do to the other reviews. They weren't all wrong.
    This is the same narrator add used before on this series and yet she went around changing pronunciations of multiple names. Ones that seemed to be correct in the previous novels. This interrupted the flow for me.
    also the overly long breaks between chapters was odd.

    "Not a bad story"
    Would you try another book from G. A. Aiken and/or Morgan Hallett?

    G.A. Aiken, yes. Morgan`s performance wasn`t bad exactly, but her pronunciation of many of the names in this book were totally wrong which is pretty amazing since she`s done the rest of this series, with the names pronounced properly, that were released through Audible.


    Do you think Feel the Burn needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I would like to see more books for this series, but I do hope the next one that holds my attention better. Not sure what was wrong with this one...but I found it easy to leave it to do something else which is odd for anything from G.A. Aiken aka Shelly Laurenston.

    "Good Story"

    The pronunciation of names was a little off. The story as always was well written.

    "Very good story/addition to the series :D"

    4 stars

    This was a very good story and addition to the series. I liked both Gaius and Kachka and enjoyed their story.

    Kachka is a rider of the Steps, a territory outside of Annwyl's Kingdom (or should it be Queendom?). The society of the Steps is matriarchal and Kachka's mother was the leader of their clan. Kachka loves her sister (Elina, from book #7, [book:Light My Fire|17731347]) but their mother hated her and when she tried to kill Elina, Kachka left the Steps to be with her sister.

    Gaius is the one-eyed rebel King who rules a territory bordering Annwyl's. Gaius's uncle had been the King but he was a cruel ruler and Gaius and his sister were forced to fight back or be killed. Gaius now rules with his twin sister and is working on securing their territory from relatives that were supportive of his uncle's rule.

    This story starts about 6 months after book #7 and Kachka has been living in Annwyl's castle with her sister. She hunts but feels restless because there's more she could be doing. However, because of her being raised in a matriarchal society, Kachka has no interest in joining the arm and taking orders from "useless" men. Annwyl has been having some problems with some fanatical followers of a god, trying to destroy the temples of all other gods in Annwyl kingdom. Annwyl's been unable to find and stop these attacks with normal troops so she recruits Kachka to put together a team and take care of the fanatics. Kachka puts together her team and proceeds to become the "scourge of the gods".

    Kachka and Gaius have a night together early in the story but Steps riders rarely waste their time going back to a man for seconds (unless he's one of their many husbands) so when Kachka and Gaius go their separate ways the next morning, there's no expectation of a reunion. However, while they both are on their respective missions, they think of each other. I liked how Gaius made Kachka his "happy place", thinking of her when times got tough and he needed to think of something soothing and special. When they do see each other again, it's with a mutual respect and realization that there's a genuine liking between them. Kachka is a bit reluctant to show these feelings outright but she's not as bull-headed about it as her sister was in the previous book. Gaius and Kachka are able to accomplish their objectives (for the most part) and in the end, they come together as a couple and are on their way to a HEA.

    This was a very enjoyable story. I liked Kachka very much and had no real complaints about her. Gaius was a really good hero and I liked him a lot too. Their romance was kind of slow moving but it didn't feel forced and I liked it, even if it was less emotional/demonstrative than I'm used to. The story was interesting and kept me engaged and I liked the characters very much so I'd recommend this story/series. :D

    * note - The narrator is still not pronouncing names correctly and it showed up particularly blatantly in this book...mostly because she was pronouncing "Dagmar" as "Dogmar" throughout the whole book. And it doesn't seem like an accident because it's so clear it sounds as if she's emphasizing the "dog" part. I mean seriously...how hard is it to figure out that "dag" isn't pronounced "dog"?!?!?! I practically cringed every time she pronounced it that way. This narrator does well at the narration in general but seems to do horribly with the pronunciation of the names.

    "Another great addition but what happened to DAGMAR"
    Where does Feel the Burn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Shelly Laurenston, aka G. A. Aiken, writes some great, Hilarious stories! Ever since my wife introduced me to her, I have become an AVID FOLLOWER!!!

    WE now have ALL HER BOOKS,and we have listened to most, 2-3 time each or more.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    WTF?!?! What is going on? How did DAGMAR change to DOGMAR?

    Great Story and Great Narration EXCEPT that Morgan changed the pronounciation of DAGMAR to DOG-MAR.

    VERY IRRITATING!!!!!I

    WE GREATLY PREFER LISTENING to MORGAN's NARATIONS over the New Reader Hollie Jackson, but "DOG-MAR" nearly RUINED THE LISTEN!


    Any additional comments?

    STICK WITH ONE (1) NARRATOR PLEASE!?!?!?!?!?

    "Loved this series"
    If you could sum up Feel the Burn in three words, what would they be?

    Great story


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The same narrator did all the books but couldn't remember the characters names throughout the series. Example: in the first book we meet Fargus. In the next book she calls him Fairgus. In the remaining books she calls him Fergus. This happened with several characters and was really distracting to the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and enjoyed the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    It really is worth a read if you can get around the orator's blunders.

    "Great book, bad narrator"

    I love this book. It is so good that even the constant mispronunciations of names could not make me love this book less. Seriously though. This narrator has done other books in the series and I cannot believe that she managed to mangle the names as badly as she did. Honestly I know Dagmar loves dogs but even I know her name is Dagmar not "Dogmar". Really? Puts me off the narrator greatly as she did this mispronunciation with most of the names.
