Audio: One good dragon deserves another - Rachel Aaron

After barely escaping the machinations of his terrifying mother, two all-knowing seers, and countless bloodthirsty siblings, the last thing Julius wants to see is another dragon. Unfortunately for him, the only thing more dangerous than being a useless Heartstriker is being a useful one. Now that he's got an in with the Three Sisters, Julius has become a key pawn in Bethesda the Heartstriker's gamble to put her clan on top. Refusal to play along with his mother's plans means death, but there's more going on than even Bethesda knows. Heartstriker futures are disappearing, and Algonquin's dragon hunter is closing in. Now, with his most powerful family members dropping like flies, it's up to Julius to save the family that never respected him and prove once and for all that the world's worst dragon is the very best one to have on your side.

My thoughts:
Omg, I looove this series. The second half was so omg, and the last 8 hours in listened to in a day cos I COULD NOT STOP. I know I do not give 5s but what the hell, maybe I should start! That does it, 5 it is, I freaking adored this book!

Oh and I adore Vikas Adam too! In the end I have no idea whether he is male or female cos these voices are the voices of the people in the book. He is freaking fantastic.

LIke omg, so good!

Can't I just write hearts and let that be it? Nope? Fine.

Ok, so, omg so good!

fine, fine! I will try.

Julius (omg, I love him! I want to meet him and just adore him forever. He is so not alpha. He is just a really nice guy *coughs* dragon*). Where was I? Right Julius. His family is trouble as always. There is a dragon hunter after him. But at least he has Marci and her pet spirit Ghost (omg Ghost, did not see that coming!). And Marci is always cool.

Bob!!!!! I love Bob!

Justin, you fool, adorable. And Amealia was a hoot! Chealsea is always cool. Damn that Estella! Bethesda is such a first class dragon bitch, mommy of the year for sure. Katia sure upped her game. Bob's pigeon is awesome. Grrrr Algoquin!

Omg the dragon lore was amazeballs.

OMG those last hours, eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!

Book 2 was sure better than the first (which was amazing too), I do fear book 3 now since this one was so good. But hey even though it just ends up being amazing and not amazeballs I will be fine.
You all must start this series.

Vikas Adam is the best! Looooove him and his narration.
This series is a MUST listen. DO not read it. LISTEN to it. I might just be a tad in love with him.

Edit. I should not have looked at what else he has narrated cos omg, that guy is HAWT

I know I know, super dull, I had to buy the mp3 since I can not download. But this is the other one


  1. This must be the one you were gushing on Twitter about!

    Sounds awesome and I love dragon shifters :-)

    Karen @ For What It's Worth

    1. yeees!!!!

      Loved it. Not a dragon shifter. A dragon that can shift to human

  2. So you liked this one? I wasn't really sure since you didn't make that clear at all. LOL This sounds pretty good though.

    1. MY BAD ;) Gosh, I should have made it even more clear, lol

  3. Ooooh girl I NEED this, not want but NEEEEEED

  4. Well holy heck..dragons and a five. I am off to add it!

  5. heh I think you really loved this book ;)

  6. LOL - I get the impression that maybe you liked this one...

  7. I've heard this series is really good, another blogger recommended it to me, and the dragonlore sounds fab too.

  8. I have a copy of the first and third audiobooks in this series. Sounds like I need to get the second one and get busy listening! Glad you loved it!

  9. I love this series! You are catching up to me now though. I have finished book 3 but still need to read book 4. And book 5 is already almost coming out!

    ~Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    1. I am getting book 3 for my bday :D I told SO that he damn well have to order it from bookdepo

  10. Love your review and I want so bad to try this author because I loved her as Rachel Bach with her Sci fi books and as it's usually not a genre for me I'm sure I'll love this one!

    1. I totally forgot that she is Bach too! Those were cool

  11. Hahahaha. I love your review and completely agree with everything you listed. I've been watching with baited breath for the last book in the series (Bob is on the cover). Now, I want to do a complete series relisten.

  12. I'm so glad you loved this one! Julius' siblings are the best! (Bob, Chelsea, and Amelia, not those others) Book three isn't as good, but book four is better again. 😁

  13. Oh wow... I don't think I've ever seen you go on about any book this much. I'd better check it out! Nice review.

  14. 5!?!?!?!?!! then it must be good.

  15. Wowee for a 5 star listen. You make me want to start listening straight away!
