After the horrors of the Dragon Wars in the distant future, the Earth is ruled by an elite subset of dragons called Overlords.
Khellandrian, a fiercely proud azurite dragon crippled in his youth, leads an insurrection violating the most sacred laws of dragonkind.
Melliaunserah, a sleek beauty of smoke and shadow, is desperate to keep her clan-family safe from the tyranny of the Overlords. From their first meeting, she feels an inexplicable connection to Khell that only grows as time passes.
Caught in a desperate race against time, the unlikely pair struggles to unite unlikely allies and battle unlikelier enemies in their quest to destroy the Overlord.
Will they succeed and overcome the sadistic Overlord, or were they doomed to failure before they even began?

I thought it would be difficult to feel invested in a story narrated from a dragon perspective, and where humans have presumably been extinct for millennia, but it didn't take long before I was fully invested in the dragon freedom fight. Minus points for cheesy and cliched insta-love. (And for the frequent use of "whom" in the subject position.) This is a prequel and I do wonder what the main body of work will look like. And what time period it will be set in. And if it will actually explain where the dragons came from.
The narration was quite good, but some of the attempts at female voices were unintentionally funny.
This audiobook was provided to me by the author in the hopes that I would give my honest review, which I have done.

A Great Listen
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, and have voluntarily left this review. I found this tale of the future to be very interesting and a bit upsetting, since humans are gone. Dragons rule the earth and humans are just a memory. Dragons have all the same traits as humans, miss using power included. This is a tale of the weak coming together to defeat the overlord. The heroes are brave and unique. This short story has character and lots of action. It's a great listen if you have a couple of hours to fill.

This book is an excellent introduction to the world the Calamity series is set in. During the story you get a fair bit of the history of the world as well as the societal set-up and the social norms.
The dragon characters were really well done and the story is interesting and exciting. I really enjoyed listening to it and I'm looking forward to listening to more of the series.
The narration was excellent, the character voices were really well done, they sounded draconian and delivery was smooth and natural.
I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher in exchange for an honest review.
