Publisher's Summary

Continue to hide or help save the very kin she's hidden from?

Welcome to SYN Consulting, the top business strategy consulting firm in Europe, home to a motley crew whose leader has a life changing secret. CEO, Danica Lestrange, is the first female dragon born in the last 800 years. Hidden from the rest of her kin and raised in the human world, she built a life that she would defend until her death.

A devious plan is unearthed while working on a new business deal that could plunge the dragons into another war with the humans. The humans may have forgotten the last dragon-human war, but the dragons have not. Will the war reveal this hidden world to the humans, or will the clans come together to defeat their enemies and maintain their anonymity?

Danica must gather her allies and help the very dragons she's hidden from her whole life. She can only hope that she'll be strong enough to protect her chosen family.

This is the first audiobook in a new series about dragons who want nothing more than to live in peace, but refuse to be subjugated. In war there's also love, and love is blind. Love doesn't care about gender, race, species (in this case), or sexuality.

Attention: This book contains explicit sexual content between consenting adults. The sexual scenes are MM, MF, and MMF. There are romantic relationships depicted that are MM. There is also a high level of explicit language, snark, kink, and possibly bad puns and fart jokes.

This audiobook does end in a cliffhanger.

Dragon War Chronicles is a continuous series. It is best to listen in order:

Michael Ferriuolo Delivers a Great Performance

When I’m conflicted about a book, I figure I should start with what I liked. Let me start with narrator Michael Ferriuolo. I always love his performances and this was just another brilliant one. There are plenty of female voices and he always nailed them perfectly. Also, accents abounded and, as always, he hit the right note with all of them. Overall, a fabulous performance. I like that the book is set in various foreign locations (although Toronto isn’t foreign to most Canadian and why does Colin hate it so much?) I loved the use of the Canadian Northern Wilderness as a backdrop for what is to come. I like that there are various pairings – so warning to gay romance lovers, there are lady parts. God knows, there is plenty of sex in this book. I like that the shifters area all different kinds of animals. And, believe it or not, I liked the world building and all the rules. I didn’t understand them all but that’s probably because I don’t read many paranormal so interspecies rules don’t mean as much. Oh, and I liked the idea of a female dragon born after eight hundred years who has to hide her true self. There are quite a few characters in the book but I like how Danica (the female dragon) has created a pack of her own, even if she doesn’t necessarily identify them as such. I love the concept of found family. Okay, quick rundown of what I didn’t like. Short list, to be sure. There was a lot of head hopping in the book. I would be in Danica’s mind, hop over to Colin’s, and then switch back to Danica’s – all within a few paragraphs. I found it jarring. Also, there’s the line: “her t-s almost smacking herself in the face with each thrust.” Okay, getting a little personal here – I have decently sized breasts and they have never almost hit me in the face – under any circumstances. The line felt like it was written by a man about what a woman should be like. As you can see, it hit me the wrong way. Other than those few little things, I found the book interesting. It ends on a massive cliffhanger and there are three more books in the series. The true test for me is whether I’ll read the next ones. The answer is yes. With enthusiasm.

Good Story Great Narration

I enjoyed this book very much. I was a bit confused at first and it took me some time to figure out the relationships and how everyone connects, but I enjoyed listening to the story from the first chapter till the culminating cliffhanger ending. Danica the most amazing dragon shifter is the center of the story and became one of my favorite female characters, strong, smart, inspiring loyalty and admiration she has men willing to die for her. This book has many characters and narrator did an outstanding job giving every character a unique voice fitting them perfectly and making every character main and supporting sound just right with accents and personality. Syn Consulting is the first book in the Dragon Wars Chronicles and I am looking forward to listening to the rest of the series. This was a great listening experience.

Incredible

This is a story that will have you continuing to listen when you should be doing something else. The story is full, characters are unique, and the world is absolutely fascinating. The narrator brings each character to life and will have you entranced.

Captivating Start & M. Ferraiuolo is Amazing!

I’ve learned to expect great things from A.G. Carothers and Syn Consulting, the first episode of their Dragon War Chronicles, has just raised the bar. Carothers lays the foundation for this thoroughly captivating series with interesting characters, non-stop action, and a delightful dose of sophisticated dialogue. As the CEO of Syn Consulting, Danica Lestrange isn’t your average gal. Drop dead gorgeous, self-confident, and thoroughly committed to enjoying her sexuality, Danica is also a rare female dragon. Her fate is sealed, her mate chosen by the gods, and Danica knows one day she must breed to ensure the future of her race. But this powerful woman isn’t about to lie down and let anyone walk all over her! The rest of the cast includes an interesting mix of shifters, called SLIPS in this story, who make up Danica’s support network. Employees, lovers, friends... these men are Danica’s family and I love how A.G. Carothers advances the story by focusing on the characters’ complex relationships. I felt a little sorry for Kollin Olsen, the dragon who is Danica’s fated mate. Kollin truly needs SYN Consulting’s help and Danica flirts and teases him during every video conference. Proud and (in my opinion) a bit stuffy, Kollin is a male dragon from a powerful clan who isn't used to being toyed with. The tension builds delightfully between them, and when Kollin discovers Danica is actually a dragon… Syn Consulting ends in a wicked cliffhanger! It’s going to be mighty hard to wait for the next episode, and tempting as it is to purchase the book right now, I will firmly resist. With the audio version performed by the incredibly talented Michael Ferraiuolo, I know it will be worth the wait. The cast of Syn Consulting makes the most of Michael Ferraiuolo’s wealth of accents and voices. Russian, Swedish, male, female, Mr. Ferraiuolo’s performance adds depth to the story and elevates it to something truly spectacular. He builds excitement during the intense action scenes, and expresses so much passion in the exquisitely erotic exchanges between the characters. Mr. Ferraiuolo also performs his original music, which adds to the mystique A.G. Carothers creates within this imaginative tale. As creative, sensual, and exciting as this first episode has been, the following books in the Dragon War Chronicles promise great things. I can’t wait to find out what happens next, and with the next novel’s title, Secrets Revealed, I can only imagine!

Fantastic!!

This was a fantastic story line. Danica is anomaly, first female dragon born in over 800 years. She surrounds herself with different species of shifters. She's their Alpha. The narration was phenomenal!!! Michael Ferraiuolo did an amazing job differentiating all the different cast of characters and there was a lot of them. Fantastic story!!

You won't want to push pause

SYN Consulting is heart-racing in more than one way. It's absolutely brilliant and I lost myself listening to the audiobook. Dragons have much longer memories than humans, and everything is on the line. The world and characters are well-built, and the tension, sexual and otherwise will make you never want to hit pause! Highly recommend with great voice acting and even better storyline.

SYNfully Delicious!💕

Syn Consulting Audiobook MMy Thoughts and Review: Listening to an audiobook after you've read the ebook or print book can sometimes be a disappointment. Much like watching a movie after having read the book. There was none of that with Carothers', "Syn Consulting." When I read the first book of this unique series last year I loved everything about it from the Lore and shifter history the story was built around, to the fact that the characters were global and encompassed so many cultures and shifters. Michael Ferraiuolo narrates this wonder-filled adventure. If you have ever heard his work, you know you will be in for a truly delightful romp. However, if you are new to the sinfully smokey narrations of Mr. Ferraiuolo, this story is the perfect starting point. You will find action, drama, comedy, and of course romance among the slips. Be aware however, there are M/F and M/M scenes tantalize and titillate the senses. The Story: 4.50 🌟 The Narration: 4. 50 🌟 Overall 4.50 🌟 4.50 SYN-fully-delicious-Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟.✨ I received a complimentary copy of this Audiobook in exchange for my review. 💜🌈💙

Fantastic story! Wonderful audio performance!

SYN Consulting is only the second book I've read by A.G. Carothers and boy did I love this one. The story is great but the audio performance by Michael Ferraiuolo was simply outstanding. I've listened to several of his audio performances and loved them all, but I think he really outdid himself with this one. There are so many different characters and accents in this story but it wasn't difficult at all to keep track of who was speaking because he found the perfect voice for each of them. If you read the blurb then you know that this book ends on a cliffhanger. I am not a fan of books with cliffhangers but I knew going in that there would be one. (I really hate it when a cliffhanger comes as a surprise.) This story is worth the agony of waiting for the next in the series to be available as an audiobook. If I decide that I can't wait then I can read the e-books, four of which are available now. From what I could tell on Amazon, it looks like there will be at least two more books for a total of six. A lot of this book is setting up relationships and scenarios for things that I am sure are coming in the series. There are multiple sexual relationships between consenting adults – MM, MF and MMF. There are also many different shifters – bear, wolf, fox, etc. – and of course, dragons. This is the first dragon shifter book I've read and I maybe hooked now. 😊 I found the entire story captivating and I listened to the 6+ hour audiobook straight through in one afternoon/evening. I know that audiobooks are expensive for authors to produce but I sincerely hope that Michael Ferraiuolo will be performing the remaining books in this series. A copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***

oh my! what a cliffhanger!!

A thrilling and detailed series opener, saturated in culture, secrets and mystery. I love all the covert elements and the unique pack created. I like the unique collection of characters. I feel each one has more of a story to tell but the taste has me intrigued. I'd say this has more MF focused relationships but they are all intertwined in their own way. I feel the sense of pack and pack type love over romantic connections but I'm intrigued by these characters and what connections will appear in the next book. I need the next book now! as always Michael is fantastic and I could have sworn there was more than 1 narrator with all the unique voices Michael has mastered. The is the start of a thrilling adventure made even better by dragons!!!
