Publisher's Summary

Melina Franklin was barely 16 when she and her grandfather were kidnapped by an alien trader and sold to an Antrox mining asteroid in deep space. Mistaken for a young boy, she lives the next five years in fear of being found out and sold. She dreams of the day when she and her grandfather will return home.

Calo and Cree Aryeh are twin brothers and a rare species of dragon known for their fierceness in battle. The brothers know they will never be able to have a true mate of their own. Never in the history of their clan have twin dragons been able to find a mate capable of handling two male dragons.

The twin dragons are confused when two humans are discovered in an abandoned asteroid mine. The old man and his grandson appear normal enough, but their dragons are driving them crazy, insisting the boy is their true mate. Things become clearer when they discover Mel is really Melina, but she refuses to have anything to do with either of them, and she is determined to return home. Can they convince her to give them a chance at happiness?

Not exactly the book I wanted...

This is one of those side stories that popped up through the series. Having those brooding twins meet their match was fun to see in Carmen's book. We had just enough hints to see things coming. It was interesting seeing those same events from the inside with this book. It did make a few things in the beginning seem to go slower. I just wanted to fast forward to the moment they knew she was a girl and what happened after.

There are no major twist in this book, it is more about the trio than any serious plot drama. Most of the big bad stuff was resolved and not really a part of this story. There is another conflict presented by the nature of them as twin dragons. Apparently, twin dragons never have found a true mate, so things do get dramatic at the end.

It takes awhile for the steam to happen, especially because for a large chunk of the book they thought she was a boy. Once that is dissolved, the spark happens quickly. They are seriously hawt details!! It is super fast for things happening. It is a very spicy book in the end.

I liked this book, but it wasn't a favorite in the series. I just kept waiting for something to happen. Once things did get exciting, it just wasn't enough for me. I would have liked the recap portion to have been quicker and more of their time on Earth as well as them coming home to the village.

As always the narration was a highlight, David Brenin is one of my ear crushes!! I just cannot get enough of his delicious reads!! He has a splendid pace that brings the action to life in delightful ways! I want him to read to me nightly!!

There are still a couple more side books in this series, then the stories of the other planet's princes. I love that this creates such a full world with so much potential!! The connections of the stories is a fascinating puzzle to unravel.

I loved it!

I was so worried about the twins and cheered when Mel came to the rescue. She showed courage throughout the story. Thank you for such a different twist and I can't wait for all the books to go audio.

Twin dragons find young human completes them?

O.K. first of all the twin dragons did NOT kidnap the young girl. Some other aliens kidnapped a young female & her grandfather from earth to be slaves. Her grandfather hides the fact that she was a female to keep her safe. She grew up 6 years away from earth as a young boy the "wasn't right in the head". The pair get rescued but, chances of getting back to earth are complicated when the twin dragon brothers meet the "boy' and find that they are strongly attracted to "him" this story has some sad situtations and bizarre events that keep the reader/listener scratching their head. It was the typical struggle of alpha male/males controling their female to bend to their wishes. I felt sorry for the young lead female. She lost soooo much and then when she though she might get her life back. Uncontrollable forces push her into another life. Her childhood is robbed & innocents lost. Perhaps losing her roots & family made room for new ones.. We hope.

simple and pleasent and a prime example of......

I like the Author's imagination. it is fun. Over all this book is entertaining up to a degree. The description of this world and the interactions between characters are simplistic in nature.. I feel like this world of dragon shifters is young and lacks the richness of a full bodied well rounded story that leaves the reader fully satisfied in having been immersed , not just dipped, in the whole experiance. It's a book I would listen to only once,having fast forwarded a time or two. Not a book I would read again and again. The Narrator is good but some female voices sound a little off to me, and perhaps best described as weak. The male voices are really good. At times I wanted to shake the females and offer them a cup of strong coffee without any sugar. Too soft. Too much breathe. This also caused me to fast forward a time or two.
I do Keep in mind that simple can be good sometimes. Happy reading.

Waste of my time!

I enjoyed all of the other Dragon Lords books but this one wasn't very good. By the time it was over, I disliked all three of the main characters. S. E. Smith didn't put much effort into this story. I am returning this one, even if it did cost only $2.99.

fun listen

This was worth a return listen when I wanted to hear something frivolous. The male narrator seemed a little strange at first given the genre, but he pulled off the female lead without the corn ball sappy voices I've heard from other make narrators reading romances.

A solid story!

I have enjoyed this series and would recommend it. The dragons are very sexy shifters and the women of Earth are kick a$$ females ready to tame their shifters.

Twin Dragons NeverFind A True Mate, But They Do

Calo and Cree are raised knowing no twins have ever found their true mate, they become crazed and violent ..Calo and Cree are waiting.
Melina and her Grandfather were kidnapped from Earth 5 years ago and set to work at a mine. Melina dressed like a boy, addled-minded, to be protected.
Upon being saved Calo and Cree at first can’t figure out how a boy could be their true mate...but eventually the process of seeking to seal their bond.
The narrator was fantastic and kept the story flowing perfectly.
Would love this series to go on forever.

Good story, bad sex

The story line of the book is interesting and kept my attention. When it came to the sex scenes I could only roll my eyes. They were so unreal and boring I had to stop reading.

Enjoyable but lousy last chapter

Overall about as enjoyable as the rest of the series but the last chapter is really stupid and spoilt the book for me.

An ohh so advanced race with space travel etc are willing to execute 2 men on the word of ONE spoiled youth. All without any kind of trial or evidence, stupid.

follow thay with a female who flew away to save herself as she watched her mates being captured and then hid away. Whilst hiding, the author then padded the story with nonsense hyperboly. When she eventually helps, she uses a SHOVEL, daft.

Stupid and totally nonsense last chapter

Twin Dragons

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the story of the twins finding and finally claiming their mate was very well thought out and written. The story of Melina's rescue and her finding love with the twins was very moving and brought tears too my eyes I loved every bit of it

Terrible....

Would you try another book written by S. E. Smith or narrated by David Brenin?

No.

What could S. E. Smith have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Nothing.

How could the performance have been better?

Ditto.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes, I could turn it off.

Any additional comments?

Might float some peoples boats, but my boat sank without trace. To be fair it just wasn't my cup of tea.

Narration okay but sometimes a bit monotone.

Narration okay but sometimes a bit monotone. Loved this book as much in audible as I did reading it. Great to listen whilst doing housework. BOOK REVIEW What a roller coaster ride this book was. Another wonderful story but the first third was a recap of book 5 and annoyingly wasteful to those of us following the series. I will agree it is needed for new readers though or they would be lost. So sad at the beginning with what happened to the other twin Dragons Barrack and Brogan, glad Aikaterina is going to do something for them. Melanie and her grandpa were kidnapped from earth when Mel was only 16. The beginning of their story is told in Cornering Carmen. Cree and Calo also featured in Cornering Carmen, when they first meet Mel they think they are going mad. No twin dragon set in history has found a true mate. The madness of the other dragons hangs over their heads as they grow up and they are determined to die in battle rather than go mad. This makes them deadly in battle as they have no fear of death. Once they realise Melanie is their true mate they are so over protective as to smother her, this makes for an amusing read. Shy little Melanie comes into her own and I just loved the end where she takes the council on with her golden shovel. Very amusing. She may be quiet but she has a backbone of steel. You can read this as a standalone as it recaps a lot of their story but reading Corning Carmen first gives you a good solid background. My only query is Cree and Calo had pledged themselves to the Royal house for life, albeit drunkenly, but there was no mention of them leaving, all of a sudden they were living in their new home in the mountains near their parents, maybe it was because Raffvin was dead. I just like tidy ends and all the answers.

***Twin Dragons***

I love this book, I am so relieved that Cree and Calo found Melina and she found them. There are scenes that I couldn't stop giggling. The world building is fantastic. The narrative is excellent as always David Brenin is awesome with his narrative.
