I was really looking forward to the third book in this series but found it disappointing in comparison to the other two. Too much introspection from the main characters made me completely lose the plot - literally. At one stage Mac is running down a corridor and it takes him a whole chapter nearly as she is describing what he is thinking the whole time he is running. I loved the witty dialogue in the first two books but in this one for the first half of the book there are only a handful of conversations, the rest is again, introspection. It is a great idea, the idea is good enough to run a series of books but please don't get bogged down in lengthy descriptions at the cost of the fast pace of the other two books. I will still buy the fourth book hoping for a return to the style of the previous two books.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
First chapters have too much redundant filler fluff. Basic story was good. Male characters interesting tho the tough guy dialogue is overdone and becomes juvenile, not macho). The main female character is just Too Stupid To Live - but, of course, she does. The things the author has her think and do were just ridiculous to the point that had this been a hard copy I'd have thrown it at a wall. The author intended to make the character seem overwhelmed with love and concern, but the reasoning given for the characters actions were totally vapid. Ugh! I'm a woman and I hate it when an author has the female character act like a total idiot.The book seemed like the author threw it together and rushed the ending.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Just listened to "The Scottish Prisoner," and liked it more than I had thought I would since it was an offshoot of the main Outlander stories so I think I'll pick up another of Gabaldon's "Lord John" stories. I've read all the Outlander series so I knew the basic story in which it took place (Need to have read the first two "Outlander" books to fully appreciate).
What about Benjamin L. Darcie’s performance did you like?
Did a good job differentiating character voices and his pace and expression were perfect.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
I read the first two of this series and they were better by far than this latest book.

Great continuance to a great series. I love that the author has now introduced the European faction to the story. Which gives us more background for dragon kind. I can't wait for till Book 4 comes out. The narrartor is great with the different characters. He is male so the females do sound alike but the different accents on the males is very good.
I never thought I would enjoy a fantasy book like this but it has been a great listen and very entertaining.... and hot and I do so love the dragon furies.. =].
Start from book 1... this is a series...
