Publisher's Summary

Dragons once soared in the skies, but that was before the Transformation, before they took human form. Now, demonic forces stand to obliterate them. When left mortally wounded, Darnuir, the Prince of Dragons, can only be saved through a dangerous rebirthing spell. He is left as a babe in human hands.
Twenty years later, Darnuir is of age to wield the Dragon's Blade. As the last member of his bloodline, he is the only one who can. He is plunged into a role he is not prepared for, to lead a people he does not know. Shadowy demons ravage his new home and the alliance between humans, dragons and fairies has fractured.
Time is short, for new threats and deadlier enemies are emerging....

Great Story

Any additional comments?

I have really enjoyed this audio book, I have fallen out of love with this genre of story over the last year or so but both this and the Half-Orc Series have changed that.

The story itself was intriguing with a varied selection of characters, interesting dialogue and fast paced action. At times it did make me think of Lord of the rings with swords replacing rings and dragons and fairies in place of elves and dwarfs.

Even though I was provided this audio book free of charge to provide an unbiased review I can honestly say that this series is now on my wish list and I will be purchasing the next instalment when it is available. Seriously give it a go.

An intriguing take on dragons.

If the blurb didn't forewarn, I'd have expecting leathery wings and gargantuan reptiles. This series, however, puts a new spin on the beasts of legend. In human form for generations, the dragons and their human and fairy allies face demonic foes in a protracted war on all fronts.

The focus of the story revolves around the rebirth of a dragon Prince. I wasn't a fan of this character, due to his arrogance and attitude towards others, although it was clear this was the point of him, so it certainly did the trick. I'm happy to say that he does develop throughout the story and that development is set to continue on through the series, from what I can see, intriguing me more.

The narration was hesitant at times, but improved as the story was told. I look forward to seeing how the performance improves through the second book, which I will be listening to soon.

There's plenty of action and intrigue, twists and turns in this fantasy story. Magic and monsters, betrayals and alliances. A well rounded world building that promises more of the same in the following books.

I give the narration 3-4 (start to end), and the story a solid 4. Some of the supporting characters won me over, which led to some emotional lows as well as mirth filled highs.

Check this beginning to an epic tale out, and explore dragons in a more vulnerable form.
