Summary

When Julius overthrew his mother and took control of his clan, he thought he was doing right by everyone. But sharing power isn't part of any proper dragon's vocabulary, and with one seat still open on the new ruling Council, all of Heartstriker is ready to do whatever it takes to get their claws on it, including killing the Nice Dragon who got them into this mess in the first place.
To keep his clan together and his skin intact, Julius is going to have to find a way to make his bloodthirsty siblings play fair. But there's more going on in Heartstriker Mountain than politics. Every family has its secrets, but the skeletons in Bethesda's closet are dragon sized, and with Algonquin's war looming over them all, breaking his clan wide open might just be the only hope Julius has of saving it.

Story widens (for the better). Masterful narration

Vikas Adam! A truly great narration. Adam has a soft pleasant voice. That alone makes me like him as a narrator. Add to that his ability to create VERY different (and believable) voices, male and female, as well as accents. Even the characters different emotions, demeanour, status and to whom he/she is speaking at the moment changes subtly. Masterful!

The book itself then? A bit darker than the previous ones. A bit thinner on humor. A lot richer in tension. Some major changes in the storyline (and more to come obviously). Most of them for the better. The story base (and list of interesting characters) gets a LOT wider, making for rich and exciting books to come.

A great book in it's own right, but perhaps even better as a setup for books to come. I often gripe about books not being self contained enough. Not this time! I liked it immensely.

Caught up in this series again

This 2nd book was a disappointment, so I was sceptical about this book in the series. It was a great listen, with great characters great story, and another great narrator. I would recommend this to anyone who likes fantasy or dragons. I,ll be listening to the rest of the series.

Hold on tight

because there are so many amazing twists in this book, you will be holding onto each word. Beautiful performance by Vikas Adam, as usual. Every character is distinctly different, which is great because Rachel introduces us to more of the Heartstriker clan.

If you thought that presidential elections were stressful, just try to get a bunch of dragons to elect their new clan representative. Poor Julius just wants everyone to stop trying to kill each other.

I loved this book and I am biting my nails until the next one releases! Please, Bob, tell me when that will be!

Whoa.

Please focus on the sequel and write away.

Listening to this had me so giddy.
I found myself relating to almost every character, which surprised me.

Felt so many things, in so many ways.

I took off work, put my headphones on and listened.
A day later.. I found myself listening to the epilogue verbally and physically cheering.
