To review

I actually enjoyed this one more than book 1, I do like when they keep on getting better!

Opal is having a hard time. She works as a cleaner, that is she buys the right to clean out places and sell the stuff she finds. But her dad cursed her so she has bad luck.

First, I found myself liking her dad, and that is so bad. He is a dragon, and he is not a nice, person. But I do feel that deep down he does care, but he is a dragon and dragons can not care for humans. Yes, I totally like her dad. But he is an overbearing crazy dragon that covets humans for his hoard.

So in this one she has to make money to pay off her dad so that she an be free. But she has constant bad luck. To help her she has Nick, who is like part cyborg, or when does you go fully cyborg?

There is weird things happening. There is running from dragons and dragon politics. There is a Julius cameo! Omg, I have missed him so much. I love love Julius...looooove.

Oh, the ending is SO evil, so very evil

This series is fun, Opal is strong and all she wants is freedom. The DFC is one crazy city, and the world is fantastic. Dragons, spirits and magic.

Narration Emily Woo Zeller
I have listened to her in  a few different audios now and i do like her narration. I like her different voices and she brings emotion and feel to the story. She makes Opal for me

Life in the magical mess of the Detroit Free Zone is never easy. When you’re laboring under the curse of a certain prideful, overbearing dragon, it can be down right impossible.   
My name is Opal Yong-ae, and I’m a Cleaner. At least, I used to be. Thanks to the supernatural bad luck that turns everything I do against me, these days I’m more of a walking disaster. Getting rid of this curse is the only way to get my life back. Unfortunately, dragon magic is every bit as sneaky and deadly as the monsters behind it, and just as hard to beat.  
But I’ve never been one to take her doom at face value. Cornered doesn’t mean defeated, and in an awakened city that rules herself, dragons are no longer the biggest powers around.


  1. I'm really curious to try this new series

  2. I like dragon stories but I'm not sure about this one.

  3. Darn those evil endings! ;)

  4. I really want to read this series! I had no idea the second book was already out. I just grabbed a copy of the audible as soon as I saw your review :)

    1. The author did a "surprise it is out!" email so yes I was surprised too

  5. Gosh I really need to start this series, considering how much I loved Heartstrikers. Looks like they choose the best narrators for her books, because Vikas Adams was amazing on the other series and I also LOVE Emily Woo Zeller.

    1. I do like Emily :D I do not like the series as much as Heartstrikers, but that was cos I had a crush on Julius ;)

  6. Ooo, this sounds good, and I do love this author. Interesting it's only available via audio.

  7. This sounds kind of wild but also fun! I'm going to see if my library has it.
