Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the world of Nalzambor...

Nath is a special warrior. He is a man destined to be a dragon. In order to become a dragon, he must save the dragons. For countless years Nath has been on a quest to become a dragon, but his meddling with the other races tends to get in the way. The way of men is not the way of Nath Dragon his father has warned him. Yet, Nath, unable to control his fascination of the world men, elves, dwarves and even the despised orcs, tends to get caught up in their affairs. To earn his scales, there is a high road he must follow. With his close friend and ally, Brenwar the Dwarf, Nath, armed with a magic sword he calls Fang, travels to the Mountain of Doom, the Free City of Narnum and to Orcen Hold where nothing but trouble awaits. Will Nath Dragon, hero of the realm and protector of dragon kind choose the right path or wind up on a dark one?

*Note: This series has something to offer for fantasy listeners of all ages, but was written with younger listeners (tweens, teens) in mind. There is no profanity or sexual content. Also, Narrated by industry legend Lee Allan, this 10-book audio edition includes some tantalizing background music and special effects designed to enhance an already lively story filled with countless dragons and endless action. It is recommended that you sample this different medium of audio before purchase.*

Awesome Possum!

Great story, music and narration! I want to see Naft join forces with the Lizardmen but I'm definatly hooked on this series after one book. Great to see a Dragon saviour! I totally relate with Naft and the Dragon father. Thank Tiamat for this book!

Wow, I really enjoyed this! Lot's of dragons!

Would you listen to The Chronicles of Dragon: The Hero, the Sword and the Dragons again? Why?

Sure, it's very entertaining and I liked the characters voices and background noise.

What did you like best about this story?

I like how all of the different types of dragons were described and the different powers they had.

Which scene was your favorite?

Seeing Nath, or hearing Nath complain about the orcs and his disappointment in how the dragons treat him. His father coming down on him hard shaking the throne room was heavy too.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's hard for me to squeeze in that much time, maybe two days at best.

Any additional comments?

Sort of reminded me or Narnia. Nice there was no bad language or violence, but still plant of action. Really ideal for young listeners.

We loved these books and the sound effects

Where does The Chronicles of Dragon: The Hero, the Sword and the Dragons rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's different because it has sound effects but very fun. It's a young reader story and my kid liked it more than having to read it. It was a fun experience.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Chronicles of Dragon: The Hero, the Sword and the Dragons?

When Nath fights the the trolls in the cage who are attacking the dragon and goes berserk with his sword Fang! Incredible battle scene!

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

No, a bit old fashioned like a radio show from Prairie Home Companion, but otherwise cool!

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

Laughing at the humorous sports, especially Brenwar the Dwarf. He has good lines.

Any additional comments?

All and all a great start for us on our audio adventures and looking forward to see what happens to Nath Dragon now the he's cursed and has to fix himself.

Where does The Chronicles of Dragon: The Hero, the Sword and the Dragons rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Story is Great. Narration is Subpar

Loved the story but the narration had background sound effects that were distracting. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a classic fantasy coming of age story (of a person who is over 2 centuries old) with dragons and mages but that adds a whole new element....

The background sounds are annoying!

What did you love best about The Chronicles of Dragon: The Hero, the Sword and the Dragons?

I like the take on dragons and the story line itself. Some good battles and an interesting idea of what Nath has to do to become his father's successor.

What three words best describe Lee Alan’s performance?

I loved the enthusiasm and different inflections and tones he did for various characters but at times I think he lost the competition to the background sounds

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

the background noises are infuriating!! It made me loose my concentration and stop focusing on the story from hearing crickets and other night sounds or the battle sounds etc. I frequently found myself spacing out and loosing track of the story line. The book would be so much better without this nonsense

Any additional comments?

I wish I could remember more of the book. The idea really intrigued me but i lost focus so often with the various background sounds the whole book became background noise to me and I barely recall most of it just a day after reading. Don't purchase the audio file. Buy the real book. I am sure it would be much better.

I got this at a discount in return for my honest review.

Distracting and cliched

What disappointed you about The Chronicles of Dragon: The Hero, the Sword and the Dragons?

The sound effects were distracting. The honky tonk country music in the taverns, awful and out of place. The weird screams of pain were just awkward. The sound of spears being thrown was more like something from an old radio show about superman.
The story itself was one cliche after another with sometimes stilted and sometimes childish dialogue.

Would you ever listen to anything by Craig Halloran again?

I will be very surprised if I listen to another.

How could the performance have been better?

No silly sound effects.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. I was looking forward to a good dragon story and this is a 10 book series. I hoped it would be much much better.

Any additional comments?

This just wasn't for me. Maybe more casual listeners or younger listeners will enjoy it.
