Publisher's Summary

Audie Award, Fantasy, 2016
As the smallest dragon in the Heartstriker clan, Julius survives by a simple code: keep quiet, don't cause trouble, and stay out of the way of bigger dragons. But this meek behavior doesn't fly in a family of ambitious magical predators, and his mother, Bethesda the Heartstriker, has finally reached the end of her patience. Now, sealed in human form and banished to the DFZ - a vertical metropolis built on the ruins of Old Detroit - Julius has one month to prove he can be a ruthless dragon or kiss his true shape goodbye forever. But in a city of modern mages and vengeful spirits where dragons are considered monsters to be exterminated, he's going to need some serious help to survive this test. He only hopes humans are more trustworthy than dragons....


What the Critics Say

"Narrator Vikas Adam's streamlined voice can smoothly shift from the easygoing tones of Julius to the venomous arrogance of his mother, Bethesda.... Adam pays close attention to the characters and their evolution. For instance, as Marci becomes further empowered, the nervous quaver in her voice lessens. This is urban fantasy at its best."

Really a great read

I enjoyed it massively. A nice balance of fun, adventure and romance. The narrator is excellent too with some of the best sounding female voices I've heard from a male reader in an audio book.

Any additional comments?

right, i dont give a book or audible book praise that often ladies and gents but here. right here is a good listen. its not serious so dont expect it to be. its not edgy so dont expect that. what it is . its fully realized characters. its a B E A Utiful world. fully fleshed like that pretty tubby girl who lives down the lane. you may feel guilty but its a hell of a ride / listen. its just done well. its not adult it not brutal. normally a must for me. but its fleshed out so well hell i dont care. this is the audible book u would take home to ur mum. the one who dosent do her make up like a hoe.

long and the short. young dragon trapped in a human body thrown out into the world with 98 bucks and flip all else. enjoy enjoy enjoy u people. it is fun. plain and simple. takes 2-3 hours to get going. always read the label. do not ingest,
