Publisher's Summary

Ember Hill left the dragon organization Talon to take her chances with rebel dragon Cobalt and his crew of rogues. But Ember can't forget the sacrifice made for her by the human boy who could have killed her - Garret Xavier Sebastian, a soldier of the dragon-slaying Order of St. George, the boy who saved her from a Talon assassin, knowing that by doing so he'd signed his own death warrant.

Determined to save Garret from execution, Ember must convince Cobalt to help her break into the order's headquarters. With assassins after them and Ember's own brother helping Talon with the hunt, the rogues find an unexpected ally in Garret and a new perspective on the underground battle between Talon and St. George.

A reckoning is brewing, and the secrets hidden by both sides are shocking and deadly. Soon Ember must decide: Should she retreat to fight another day...or start an all-out war?

The narration really makes it.

I love the way the story transitions from person to person and the narration changes with it. It makes it easy to follow and the story is exciting too.

Good Story Plot

I feel like there is a lot of repetitive thoughts going on. Over and over Ember explains her feelings towards Garrett and Cobalt, but we have no clear definition of what that means. I do hate when an author tells you things rather than showing you. I’m only finishing this series because I am interested in the world she has built. I really don’t like Ember’s character AT ALL. Her two guys don’t deserve her. The narrators were all amazing though.

Julie Kagawa Does it AGAIN!

Would you listen to Rogue again? Why?

Yes, I really enjoy this series and once all of the books have been released I am going to listen to them again in order back to back. Time always flies when listening to these books!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ember because she reminds me of myself. She cares about her friends and family deeply and she fights for them. However, she never lets them push her around and she makes some pretty mature decisions for a 16 year old girl.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Each of the narrators did a wonderful job. They displayed the perfect balance of emotion and made it easier to feel their emotions. You really feel like you are getting into each character's mind to understand how they think -- no matter which narrator is speaking.

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

Yes, there were several -- most of them had to do with the former St. George soldier Garret and how he was dealing with the fact that not all Dragons are heartless killers. His character changed the most during this book and it was fun to watch.

Any additional comments?

If you like dragons and you don't mind thinking out of the box this book series is amazing. It is set in our modern world and is a little bit different than what I am traditionally used to seeing. However, this story is amazing and the characters are vibrant. I recommend reading/listening to Talon prior. It is the first book in the series and amazing as well.

Amazing and Breathtaking

What made the experience of listening to Rogue the most enjoyable?

The narrators who brought the characters to life. The story, the plot and everything.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Caitlin Davies from the Penryn and the End of Days series. MacLeod Andrews from The Iron Knight. Both are as great in this book as they were in their previous performances.

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

I loved it with every chapter. I've laughed, cried, got angry, experienced emotion and longing for the next book.

Great Follow Up

What was one of the most memorable moments of Rogue?

When Garret admits he loves Ember despite her being a dragon

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

The emotions that the different narrators are able to express adds layers to an all ready good story

Any additional comments?

This is a good follow-up to a good YA Novel. If you like the first book you will like this book.

Really enjoyed this

I really liked this book. I was skeptical about the first in this series initially but it eventually drew me in. The continuation in this book had me just as much into it as the first. I really don’t have a bad thing to say about the book. Even though the target age is for the younger audience I, a middle aged person, still found the story and performance outstanding. Would recommend to anyone.

Awful

I neither liked the voice actors or the writing in this book. I felt the writing was very poor, and lazy. I really found it hard to finish his book, I rolled my eyes a lot.

As mentioned above, I thought he voice acting was dreadful. The voice actor for Ember sounded like she spoke through clenched jaws a lot, did a terrible British accent (which I guess was supposed to sound Cockney?) and she dropped her T's in words a lot. The voice actor for Dante sounded waaaaaay too old be to be playing a 16 year old. None of the actors who had to voice Wes could carry off a British accent - I wish they had done something different there. It was just really l, really bad. The writing was poor, but decent acting could have made listening to it less painful.

English as a second language

I enjoyed the story and light drama, but the tortuous English accent was distractingly painful.
