Publisher's Summary

In 17-year-old Dakota Kekoa's line of work, a job can go bad in a split second.

And when a job goes bad, people die.

Suspended from working as a tax collector in her draconic family's protection racket, Dakota is assigned a secret mission from her grandfather. A foreign queen has offered a grave insult to Dakota's grandfather by running a vampire dinner cruise off the coast of the Mabiian Islands, and his retribution must be swift.

Yet, when Dakota infiltrates the ship Crimson Sunset, nothing is at it seems. In a split second, not only is Dakota in deathly peril, all of New Anglo is on the road to war.

    "An outstanding sequel!!!"

    Rita is an outstanding writer and the world she created in Henchgirl expands and become more complex.

    Like always, I was sucked in quickly and had a hard time putting it down. Dakota is a great heroine and her adventures never disappoint.

    I think the narrator did an awesome job bringing the story to life.

    The characters are well developed and this fascinating dragon society is well explained and explored.

    "A Perfect Sequel"
    What made the experience of listening to Rex the most enjoyable?

    The world Rita Stradling created during Henchgirl gets a lot more complicated and much larger in Rex. It is unique and refreshing and you will get sucked into the story. Wywern and Dakota take you on a thrilling ride and will definitely be back for more.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rex?

    Waking up from the coma. I wont say who because I wont spoil it. But it makes you feel happy butterflies.


    Which character – as performed by Sorrel Brigman – was your favorite?

    Wyvern and Harrison. Wywern was confident, protective and caring while Harrison was loyal, moody and comforting. They are good friends and you will love both. But I still love the alpha male Wyvern!


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

    BOTH!!!! This is beautifully written and you will feel every emotion in the book! Love, want, hate, betrayal, friendship, fear, pain. Its a roller coaster ride I have been through twice now! I can't put this book on pause!!! I love it!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved Henchgirl and Rex, was even better! I didn’t think that was possible but it is amazing!
    Our girl Dakota is getting herself into dangerous situations still and the plot twists in this one will have you on your toes constantly! The stakes are even higher in this book and you get to see a lot more of both Dakota’s and Wyvern’s family and learn about the connections each person has with each other.
    I can’t put into words how amazing this author is. I cannot wait to read the 3rd book!

    Story
    "Exciting & suspenseful, great sequel to Henchgirl"

    This exciting sequel to Henchgirl kept me captivated from start to finish. Dakota Kekoa's life is complex; her contract with Wyvern Rex not only continues to cause restrictions and complications in her life but it also tears at her heart and puts her at risk. She wants her independence but at the same time she remains inexplicably drawn to Wyvern. Her caring nature, strength and the conflicts she feels comes through well in this audiobook, especially after a job she is on for her grandfather goes awry, leaving her loved ones lives hanging in the balance and bringing Dracon/vampire, Harrison, into the mix. The narrator did a great job of giving individual voices to the characters. Drawing us in with her voice and intonation and helping you feel the fear, love, humour, conflict and anxiety occurring. The world this story is set in, and the unusual supernatural aspects the characters possess, continue to grow in depth and intricacy, making it even more captivating and unique than the first book. I loved the development of the characters, from the way Wyvern tries to meet Dekota's conditions even though it is against his draconian upbringing, to Billy's easygoing humour and Lorelei's difficulties with her aspect; you can not help but become attached to all the characters. This well written story is laced with action, magic, duplicity, suspense and romance. It quickly draws you in and leads you on a fast paced, exhilarating adventure that, at its end, leaves you eager to see what direction Dakota's life will take. This story has fabulous writing, realistic dialogue and absolutely intriguing and engaging characters. I received this audiobook from the author at no cost and under no obligation.

    "Sequel for the dragons"

    This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.

    I read the first story in the series (Henchgirl). Rex is a good sequel following it in style and the plot naturally flows from the first novel. The romance was a little iffy, so I'd say this is definitely more YA than romance. I'm a little put off by the love triangle, but YMMV.

    I thought the narrator did ok, but I felt she over-emphasized her non-character narration

    "Great addition to the series"
    Any additional comments?

    Great Sequel. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The world Rita Stradling has created just keeps getting better. A creative, interesting, unusual and complex world where you never know exactly what is going to happen next. This is definitely a fun, entertaining and enjoyable series and one I will be recommending often.

    The story pulls you immediately and never lets go. Once again the story is full of action, suspense, magic, mystery, vampires, dragons, mystery and more. There is a lot packed into this story. Great characters. Both old and new. Friend and foe. Several new and interesting characters. While I usually really hate love triangles I'm really curious as to how this one will play out.

    Dakota and Wyvern are back and up to their "aspects" caught up in another unusual situation. What starts out as a mission for her grandfather quickly turns into something entirely different. Putting them into a situation they could never have imagined.

    I enjoyed the narration much more in this book. While there is still over emphasis on each word it didn't bother me this time. I now just think of this as the way Dakota speaks. Pleasant voice. Really good character voices. Nice pace to the narration. Clearly spoken.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, publisher or narrator

    Good 2nd installment. The story moves along with plenty of action. My only gripe is the vampire angle. Do we really need another Edward? Good book though!

    "Journey Continued"

    I got this book via audiobook boom. Book 2 continued Dakota's journey and enhanced it. The author immersed me into the story and the narrator brought it to life. This is also another great sequel and did not rehash so much of book 1. Dakota's character continues to grow stronger.

    Story
    "Please keep them coming!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Rex the most enjoyable?

    The world expands, in all new ways, bringing the story to life and making the book very enjoyable. Rex is the second book in the series and like the first I could not turn it off until i finished the book. It will keep you wrapped up in the story until the end and have you begging for more.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Still loving all of them. All of Rita's characters are so well written I can not chose just one.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite part was when she meet her grandfather and made her way back to the mortal world with him. I don't want to spoil it so I will leave it at that.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    What can I say with out spoiling the book for those who have not yet read it.... I will say this, the story will keep you wrapped up and you will be very sad when it is finished. Mostly because you will want more... :)


    Any additional comments?

    I loved both books and they keep getting better and better I can not wait for the next installment.

    This book was sent to me free of charge by the author in return for a honest and non bias review. All my thoughts on the book as stated above are my own, and are freely given. I hope that you too will enjoy this book as much as I have.
