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.

He is not a fat dragon!

In Love in the Time of Dragons, we meet Tully who is the resurrected Ysolde de Bouchier, mate to the dreaded ex-Black Dragon wyvern Baltic. Tully is suffering from severe memory loss. In order for Tully to fully regain her memory so she can either accept or reject her identity as Ysolde, she seeks out Baltic to answer her questions and all heck breaks loose. This is the first book in the Light Dragon series, but this plot calls heavily on characters and plots from earlier books in the Aisling Grey series and the Silver Dragon series. Most of the reoccurring characters are back including Jim who is present in a big fat Newfoundland way. Katie MacAlister’s heroines are always comically flawed, and Tully/Ysolde de Bouchier does not break from this pattern. As with all of Katie MacAlister’s books, Love in the Time of Dragons contains her offbeat, slightly Three Stooges infused sense humor and is a joy to hear. This is a fantastic book, and Barbara Rosenblat is as wonderful as she always is.

Struggling to finish

I loved the Aisling Grey series, the Silver dragons was okay. I'm having a hard time finishing this one. The stupid cute is leaning too far to the stupid for my taste. Tully's characterization is too much like Aisling. I love the narrator, but she needs to be edited for the swallowing and mouth full of saliva sounds, it's distracting. This lack of editing is a production fault, not Audibles or the writers or the narrators. Lazy, poor production. I think the biggest fault for me is the story at this point. If/when I finish I'll bump up or down my rating accordingly.

My favorite Dragons- the Light Dragons!

I have been a faithful Katie Macalister fan from day 1.... Before I joined Audible-I READ every series she has out and in doing so, my mind had created it's own opinion of all the character's voices, traits, etc... So, when I purchased and began listening to the Audible versions- narrated by Barbara Rosenblat, I admit I was a bit worried it wouldn't do them justice.... Her voice is very distinct- BUT... Oh, how I was SOOOO wrong!!!! Barbara's unique vocal ranges and absolutely superb variations on the characters accents BLEW ME AWAY!!! There really is no other narrator who could pull it off so flawlessly! Bravo Katie, and BRAVO Barbara!!!!

Sexy male voice! Sounded like Antonio Banderas

The story was okay but I did not think it was worth a five star. It was a bit flat and without any excitement. This book is the first in the series but the story did not finish leaving the next ones to complete the rest but at this point I’m resigned to not knowing the end. I’m just glad it was a book on sale.

I'm soooooo disappointed

This is a follow on from the last Silver Dragon's books but what a change in style. I thoroughly enjoyed that series but this one - not so much. It seems K.Mac. has gone more for the comedy aspect in this new series. It has romance but she seems to skip the love scenes, which were part of the Silver Dragons appeal. It was humorous but I am struggling to get through book 2 and keep stopping to listen to another book altogether.

The narrator was good but someone please give her a drink.... she sounded like her mouth was dry all the time, and the swallowing sounds were offputting.

Worth the credit? If, I hadn't already downloaded 2 and 3 then a definite No.

I agree with some previous reviews

Would you try another book from Katie MacAlister and/or Barbara Rosenblat?

I really enjoy Katie MacAlister and generally enjoy Barbara Rosenblat's performances, but I just started this one and I must say it is EXTREMELY irritating right now.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The story is fine so far

How could the performance have been better?

Editing the mouth noises!!!!!! None of the previous books have been this irritating with squishy, watery mouth noises from the narrator.

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

It is a good book BUT the narrator made me want to puke!! The mouth noises were to much<br/>I want to hear the next book but its the same Narrator.

Would you be willing to try another one of Barbara Rosenblat’s performances?

NO

Enjoyable continuation of story line

What did you love best about Love in the Time of Dragons?

This is a nice continuation of the original Dragon series from MacAlister, which I listened to years ago. At times it seemed to drag a bit, as though Katie were trying to regain her pacing, but overall the story was enjoyable.

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

Barbara is great at keeping the different characters distinct through voices, so we don't have to constantly hear who is talking through banal dialog additions. You start to relate to each voice as a separate person.

Any additional comments?

The story ended rather suddenly, A whole book leading up to a final world-changing battle that lasted just over 5 minutes left me wondering if I had missed something...

Annoying narrator.

What did you love best about Love in the Time of Dragons?

Love the premise of the main character discovering who she really is and her prior affiliations.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was just annoying. Her voice cuts right through me all of the time regardless of what character is speaking. The swallowing was very distracting. I've persevered hoping that the narrator would grow on me as others have. I'm within an hour of finishing the book, but I'm actually talking aloud to the narrator at this point just wishing it were over with.

Any additional comments?

If I live through this, I won't be listening to the other books in the series because of the narrator. I might read them instead if I still care about the characters in the end. I love Katie MacKalister's books and have listened to several and enjoyed them, but not by this narrator.
