I have very little idea how good this story was as I was unable to get past the narrators voice which is unfortunate as I really enjoy all stories dragon related. I have listen to quite a few audiobooks and occasionally a narrators voice or reading style grates somewhat.
For this reason, I can only give this title a single star. I won't be listening to the other titles in this series for the same reason.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. Good characterisation, good ideas from the author in terms of characters and the creative writing style
What other book might you compare Confliction Compendium to, and why?
It's a collection of stories and I'd hate to give comparisons to other books other than to say that this one is a good solid fantasy books that people who like the genre will enjoy.
What does Christine Padovan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I liked the narration. Good pace and a nice voice that I could easily listen to and get drawn into the story through.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I liked the way that it jumps between different stories so that I could listen to one part and then pick up the next as soon as the opportunity arose.

What made the experience of listening to Confliction Compendium the most enjoyable?
That all of the first 4 Dragoneers Saga stories were in one purchase plus the bonus of the short, Crimzon and Clover at the end.
What did you like best about this story?
How the Dragoneers could magically 'bond' to their dragons, and the different types of villains the author came up with. Lots of intense action - the stories are never boring!
Did Christine Padovan do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Yes, she is a fine actress and does well with character voices. I noted The Royal Dragoneers and Cold Hearted Son of a Witch were the original recordings from early 2013 and aren't as greatly narrated as The First Dragoneer (first story and recently narrated), The Confliction and Crimzon & Clover, the bonus short story at the end.
But she does make the stories entertaining with all the different characterizations of people and even the dragons.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There's some comedic moments throughout the stories (especially in The Royal Dragoneers) that make the stories worth listening to.

Well developed characters and a good story are not as good when the narrator is tough to listen to. She has a strange cadence that makes it difficult to listen to.
