Publisher's Summary

A dragon can be loyal forever, if you tame her first. But Sigrid would sooner be dead than tamed. 

Dragon shifter Sigrid of Wildewyn has spent her life in a cage, quite literally. Whether she's hidden from her own people, or masked so they cannot see her face, she's dedicated her life to her country and king. But, when her king promises her to a rival warlord and Sultan of a country she hates, her loyalty is tested. 

Nadir of Bymere was the boy king no one ever thought would sit on the throne. And though he knows his country is ruled by corrupt advisors, he's lost himself in the glory of being Sultan. When they force him to marry a masked woman from the country who murdered his brother, he's set to torture her for a lifetime. 

Both hiding their own secrets, the two slowly realize there is more to both their kingdoms than they originally thought. With many in the kingdom who need help, Sigrid and Nadir must choose who they truly ally with: each other...or their kingdoms. Their choice will put either their hearts or their lives at risk.

AWEFUL

I couldn't finish it......I tried!! I REALLY did, I HATE to waste a credit. But it was just to bad. No connection between love interests, didn't like the woman narrator and story was ...ugh. I could tell you the end without finishing it, npt an interesting twist in any of it.

Not my favorite, but still inriguing

The two narrators did okay, the man better than the woman I felt. The plot felt plodding then rushed forward in a way that didn't feel right. I think there could have been more depth and development to the characters. Overall okay, a good way to pass the work commute when the radio isn't up to par

Chomping at the bit for book #2

This book finally got me to kick my Harry Potter binge of 6 months. It seemed any time I’d listen to any other novel I’d be disappointed by the voice acting or let down by the plot.

This book is perfect for any fantasy lover looking to dive into a new world. It’s reminiscent of Daenerys’ plot line from the Song of Fire and Ice series with subtle hints at a romantic subplot. The two actors who narrated the male and female protagonists were phenomenal and the story was a joy to disappear into.

Realistic

Sigard is an astonishing character, robust, sympathetic, persistent and with a vast heart. Nadir grew on me, but I have a sense he is allowing all his control go to his head.

Engaging Characters

The characters are lovely. They are true. They made errors, made mistakes, won and lost. They knew they weren’t perfect, but they were true to their hearts. I love this audio!

Deep Complication

The problems in this story aren’t very simple yet the main characters knew how to handle them. But what happens when the heart is the one in trouble, would they betray their kingdoms or their hearts?
