Publisher's Summary

Only for those I love would I traipse into the merciless Northlands to risk life, limb, and my exquisite beauty. But do they appreciate it? Do they say, "Gwenvael the Handsome, you are the best among us - the most loved of all dragons?" No! For centuries my family has refused to acknowledge my magnificence, as well as my innate humility. Yet for them, and because I am so chivalrous, I will brave the worst this land has to offer.

So here I stand, waiting to broker an alliance with the one the Northlanders call the Beast. A being so fearful, the greatest warriors will only whisper its name. Yet I, Gwenvael, will courageously face down this terrifying...woman? It turns out the Beast, a.k.a. Dagmar Reinholdt, is a woman - one with steel-gray eyes and a shocking disregard for my good looks. Beneath her plain robes and prim spectacles lies a sensual creature waiting to be unleashed. Who better than a dragon to thaw out that icy demeanor?

And who better than a beast to finally tame a mighty dragon's heart?

Complicated, good story

I’ve listened to this one several times, trying to get the story straight. This is one that I might do better to read from a paper book - there is just so much going on.
She had left it to where another story (or 27) can be written after, but this does not end with any cliffhangers. I truly appreciate that! It does tie up several plots from previous books, and will be hard to follow if you haven’t read previous stories in the series.
Hollie Jackson is a wonderful narrator. Her voice is unusual and takes some getting used to, but I’ve come to enjoy her way of narration.
Looking forward to listening to this one a few more times.

I enjoyed this story

I will not tell a lie I enjoyed these series, I found all the Dragon Kin books narrated by Hollie Jackson hilarious great and I love the way Hollie made each person distinctive and I like the lighthearted approach to everything. The only thing I do not like is the way the women all the women are always insulted by family and enemies alike(slut, cow, sow, and bitch) yet the men get nothing at all. I know some of the insults are made with no malice (especially between the women of the family) intended but it was annoying.

Narration: Nope; Story: Love

I love, love, love Aiken's work, but sweet mother in hell, the narrator nearly kills this book. Her ability to narrate male voices is cringeworthy and consistently throws me out of the story. If I hadn't already read the series myself--I mentioned I love Aiken, right?--I would have asked for my money back because Jackson's narration would've made this a DNF. I prefer Morgan Hallett's narration of the series, but my love of the books compels me to own the audio version however I can get them. There is a line though. Hopefully, they don't pick anyone worse to narrate any of her other books.

Loved it!

I absolutely love this series and this book is a strong contender for first place in my favorites category for it. The first book will always be my favorite though, but The Defiler and The Beast will always have a special place in my heart regardless of this.

Another awesome addition to the Series

To those that care about reviews: HEAR ME! This Series is Everything you want! If you like solid world building, character development, storylines with close knit familial bonds, strong female leads that can protect themselves, strong male leads that make you want to toss your panties at them (if you were that type of girl which of course you are not), ever building chemistry mixed with romance and a well paced novel then Dragon Kin is definitely for you. By the end of this book I wanted my popcorn, tea, and even my pearls to clutch when a nice moment of dramatic irony climaxed beautifully. Yes, Gwenvael is a bit annoying. But the Beast more than makes up for that. Fortunately he is sexy at certain moments which help combat the mental image he evokes of the good looking but silly jock in a ‘80s movie at times. It’s a slow start but by the middle you’ll be missing your bedtime to stay up a bit longer to hear the next part. Oh and did I mention Annwyl lovers will be thrilled too? I highly recommend it!

Really enjoyable

If your looking for love, action and a bit of humour mixed in with a tad of sex and death then look no further. Strong heroine, charming hero and the families and great too. Might need a pen and paper for all the different characters but it is well worth it. Definitely recommended 😁
