Audio: Nice dragons finish last - Rachel Aaron

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 that 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...

My thoughts:
This one was as good as I hoped it to be, yay, I have wanted a good UF series, and hey it was audio so win win. I am really getting into audio.

Julius is a horrible dragon. He likes humans, he is nice and he does not want to rule the world. I mean come on Julius! Shape up and create an empire ;) I really liked him, he was just so not a a "good" dragon. But he is a smart dragon.

Marci is a mage, and human. She was nice, and well...not as nice as Julius. I think she had more dragon in her ;)

In this future magic came back, Detroit was destroyed by a spirit and life goes on. Oh and Detroit is a no no zones for dragons and that's where Julius gets thrown by his mummy dearest.

I liked the siblings we saw, liked and liked, some were cold as ice and then there was Bob, you have to love Bob, I loved Bob.

Off on an adventure he goes. There are monsters, dragons, action, humour and fun times!

Narrator: Vikas Adams
I liked his voices for them all. Though Bob did sound really silly. But he did a great job and I could not put the book down.


  1. I really want to try this one!

  2. Oh my! I love dragon-themed stories and this one sounds really good. I'm glad you enjoyed it :)
