If it lives, it can die … even immortal dragons. Unfairly cursed and then mercilessly hunted for a thousand years by a powerful group of druid witches, the Dracones fight for their very survival. After their village was massacred, Tierney and her friends fled the realm of Tartaria for Earth, keeping their identity as dragon shifters secret. Only you can’t run from the past—a point made crystal clear when twenty-one-year-old Tierney gazes into the tormented eyes of the man she loves. His failure to protect his brother long ago left Jax broken and full of rage. Now as his Awakening approaches, his powers grow unpredictable. If he survives the emergence of his dragon, he fears he will endanger the one he loves above all others—Tierney. Their past catches up when Tierney has a brutal vision. The Ilyium have found them, triggering ancient instincts in the Dracones and now Tierney and Jax must overcome their legacy and learn to trust in themselves in order to avoid the Ilyium’s sinister plans. This is the first book in the Dracones series for readers age 18+. If you are a fan of dark, steamy, paranormal romance, get Tierney and Jax’s story and be swept up into a magical world of betrayal filled with immortal dragons, shapeshifters, werewolves, wereleopards, vampires, witches and angst ridden sensual heat.
I’m a fan of PNR, but I had yet to delve into the world of dragons. I found my self instantly transported into a magical world of fantasy. Jax and Tierney’s journey is filled with action, adventure, and plenty of heat. The twists and turns in the story keep the ride unpredictable and the listener captivated.
The only challenge I found with this story was that there was such an abundance of characters! So many that I momentarily lost track of who was who or what was happening. Which was a bit confusing and pulled me out of the story, but the fantastic narration and story alway drew me back in
Narration by Tor Thom and Charley Ongel was quite literally impressive. They both manage to give each character their own distinctions and make this audiobook truly come to life. As always chemistry between the narrators was right on point and made listening that much more enjoyable and the minutes in a 12+ hour audiobook breeze on by. They’re both quickly becoming some of my favorite narrators.
