Publisher's Summary

For 17-year-old Elena Watkins, the world of Paegeia is not finished revealing all its secrets. During a summer break intended for relaxation, she discovers that her harrowing adventure to retrieve the King of Lion sword wasn't the destiny foretold by the cryptic Viden, a dragon with the ability to see a person's true fate. The words inked onto the page of the mysterious Book of Shadows remains black, and Elena must return to Dragonia Academy to discover their true meaning.

Upon her return to the magnificent castle, she has to face a challenge of a different kind - keeping her boyfriend, Lucian McKenzie, the Prince of Tith and love of her life, away from the dangerous new student, Paul Sutton. As a Wyvern, Paul has made it his mission to claim Elena as his rider, but he is proving to be more perilous than at first glance. Everyone knew that Wyverns were bad news and just as evil as the darkness lurking inside Blake Leaf, the Rubicon, who is forced to fight against his inner nature every day. But Elena can see a small light in the darkness, a destiny still unfulfilled, to prove that Wyverns can be claimed.

It has potential, I'm blaming the editor

I see talent in the writing but there are newbie issues (no I have no idea how many the author has written, just an opinion). For one, it needs to decide on an audience. The story line and easy read suggests preteen-early teens yet throws in cursing and sex like trying for a 20+ audience. Then they will be talking in one place then turn around and be in another making it hard to picture or follow. I'll think, 'wait what?' and go back to see if I missed them walking somewhere else but nope. And then in the middle it like, re-explained characters & the story like it was a new book and we had to be reminded? I'm guessing it's an audible thing, like the book was actually released in peices maybe?

Pretty Good. Could be better

I keep waiting on something to develop between Elaina and Blake. There are plenty of hints that something is coming between then but after awhile its like, Come on already!

very great book

good narration with distinct voices and accents! Love the male narrator's voice!
Story foreshadows much, but you need a good detective mind to catch some clues. Tear-jerker and jaw-dropping after that.

The only parts I disliked was the complete lack of follow up on Flynn's death, then the extreme attention to the final student's death, and the fact that the healer could not smell cigarette smoke on her assistant despite many explanations on how sensitive dragon senses are.

There’s a novella at the start

Sort of important to know, because 6 chapters in there’s a complete recap and it gets super redundant. HOWEVER this book is so worth it. I always see twists coming, like always, and this book pulled one over on me three times at the end.

There is a marked improvement over the writing style in the first book, it’s clear that the author has hit her stride.

The first chapter has a weird pitch-shift downward at the very start and it was almost enough for me to call off the series if it had continued into chapter 2. It didn’t.

Exciting

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

Yes, of course I will recommend. This second book is really enjoyable. The story is very interesting and is a good entertaining.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrators managed to present the emotions and personality of each character. Moreover, the narration is very clear, easy to understand. I really enjoyed their work.

Any additional comments?

The book is very good. if the person like fantasy and dragnons, I think may enjoy. The only problem is a very teen kind of story, but is good.

The Plot Thickens

Would you consider the audio edition of Thunderlight to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version. However I learned later that this book incorporates a shorter book and a longer book. I couldn't understand why the author spent so much time rehashing important moments that were just a few chapters before until I looked up the series. A lot of the review was simply unnecessary and created distraction from the story. That's not necessarily a narration issue but if it was in print, I would have read the two books seperately and it would have been a little less annoying. But seriously, I skipped the entirety of chapter 6 when I learned it was just review of the first book. Way too much reviewing.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sammy Leaf because she's got this undying love of her brother even as he becomes even more of a jerk. And she keeps standing by her friends showing a great deal of compassion in everything she does. Humble and helpful but not a pushover.

Which character – as performed by A. T. Chandler and Erin Moon – was your favorite?

I think Becky had the most unique voice and character. She's read as a blunt, no nonsense sort of flippant but also deeper-than-you'd-think kind of character.

redundant still good

the first half of the book almost killed me with the redundancy explaining over and over the tiny intricate details of Beck Elena and Sammy as we the story of Elena's loss both times is repeated so often, I know she is aching but having to spend pages reexplaning the details was dull slow plot line. Elena is still very much the weakling damsel and has almost no personal growth in this book... I still await the next book with bated breath and high expextations
