Publisher's Summary

In best-selling author Katie MacAlister’s Love in the Time of Dragons, suburban mom Tully Sullivan wakes up in a far-off place surrounded by strangers—many of them muscular, sexy ones—claiming to be dragons. They insist Tully is a dragon, too, and that she’s committed crimes deserving of death. Now Tully must disprove the allegations before time runs out.

Not a favorite

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Just struggled with this story. Couldn't get in to it. Maybe if I had read it rather than listened to it? The narrator on the audio book seemed to pause at weird spots and I think she had a problem with moisture in her mouth as I could hear her making swallowing noises through the entire book. It reminded me of the noises my grandmother would make when her dentures weren't fitting properly - kind of a constant moisture/sucking noise. Hours of that in your ear would ruin a story for anyone. Yuck.

Would you be willing to try another book from Katie MacAlister? Why or why not?

I purchased the next book in this series at the same time as this one - so I am stuck now and have to listen to the next book. Hope it's not another eight hours of moist mouth noises.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No. I love Katie MacAlister, but this story just didn't get there for me. And with the back and forth in time thing? I just can't see that translating well to film.

Any additional comments?

Would recommend trying some of Katie's other books. She is a wonderful writer. Just don't start here or it may sour you from her writing.

Narrator Voice To Harsh & Soap Opera Ending....

If you could sum up Love in the Time of Dragons in three words, what would they be?

Though I enjoyed the book, I only gave it 3 stars overall. First, I was very distracted by the raspiness of the voice of the narrator. Like most, you want to visualize the characters. Since the author did not give a solid description of what Isold looked like, all I could imagine was an older woman (possibly in her late 40s) who had a severe smoking problem.<br/><br/>The tale itself had me pushing through and kept me hanging on to see What Next. It was great until the LET DOWN! What happened at the end? It just dropped. I understand when authors want to build to another story but this ending was much to abrupt. I was so disappointed and left feelign empty that I am unsure if I would listent to this author again. If I do, it would only be to satisfy my curiosity as to what happened.

The sometimes subtle humor. I laughed out loud at times, listening to Barbara Rosenblat's droll voice.

She really brings out the differences between the characters. Her humorous tones had me laughing out loud at times

The story was a bit confusing at times, and the cliffhanger ending was frustrating. But I still loved it!

Would have been better, except for the narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

You can hear the crackle in her voice, all accents were the same. You couldn't tell who was talking, because she made all the main characters sound the same. If I hadn't used one of my credits for this book, I would not have finished it.
