    Description

    For Nolwenn witch Talaith, a bad day begins with being dragged from bed by an angry mob intent on her crispy end and culminates in rescue by - wait for it - a silver-maned dragon. Existence as a hated outcast is nothing new for a woman with such powerful secrets. The dragon, though? A tad unusual. This one has a human form to die for, and knows it. According to dragon law, Talaith is now his property, for pleasure or otherwise. But if Lord Arrogance thinks she's the kind of damsel to acquiesce without a word, he's in for a surprise.

    Is the woman never silent? Briec the Mighty knew the moment he laid eyes on Talaith that she would be his, but he'd counted on tongue-lashings of an altogether different sort. It's embarrassing, really, that it isn't this outspoken female's magicks that have the realm's greatest dragon in her thrall. No, Briec has been spellbound by something altogether different, and if he doesn't tread carefully, what he doesn't know about human women could well be the undoing of his entire race.

    "The second installment in Aiken's trilogy ( Dragon Actually, 2008) follows in the quirky, humorous tradition of Xena, offering a welcome high fantasy with modern sensibilities." ( Booklist)

    I LOVE G A Aiken.

    Would you try another book from G. A. Aiken and/or Hollie Jackson?

    I have read all the Laurenston/Aiken books multiple times. She is a fabulous writer if you like quick, dry wit, great dialogue and funny stories and characters. Sadly- she has not had any luck with her idiot publishers finding a narrator that can 1) pronounce the names( when in doubt-ASK! They really aren't hard, you just have to ask. Or Google!) 2) parlay her excellent writing with good pacing and voices. And Hollly REALLY misses this mark. This is just frustrating. Her voices are terrible and it just makes this awesome read so difficult to listen to.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is excellent!

    What didn’t you like about Hollie Jackson’s performance?

    Poor interpretation of the dialogue, wrong pronunciation of the names, and while this story is witty- she just says the lines flatly. I hope they didn't pay her a lot of money to do this, it was wasted. And it is the publisher's fault- people don't realize that the author doesn't have control over who they get to read her book. Sadly, Shelly doesn't deserve her wonderful writing to be so poorly interpreted..

    What character would you cut from About a Dragon?

    The narrator- the book is fine as written.

    Any additional comments?

    What are the publishers thinking? How hard it is to find a good narrator?

    Bravo to a wonderfully action packed erotic story

    This happens to be a bwwm love story but without actually using race as a label. The story is part of the series of stories about the rolay family of dragons. The writing is funny, snarky & colorful. The eroctia scene are not too crass & the drama is well place.. G.A. Aiken (Shelly L) is one of the most gifted & entertaining writers around. The characters range in different personallities, skin tone, cultures and gender roles. Any story by this author is a wise decision.. I will continue following the series & any other stories this author writes.

    I love this family.

    Dragon King series of one of my favorites. It is a hysterical, adventurous and amazing ride. I was very excited to get Briec and Talaith’s book and they didn’t disappoint. They are wonderful together. It’s crazy adventure Introduces whole Lot of new characters and let us catch up with our favorites from the last book. I would highly recommend any books in the series. Now onto Gwenvael and the Beast.

    Great Book

    This is a great book and awesome storyline. However, the male narration is unbelievably horrible.

    Excellent story

    I started reading the book and took a chance it was on Audible and it was with one of my favorite narrators Holly Jackson. she brings the characters and story to life so vividly that I'm sure I will listen to it again and again.

    Sexually Explicit

    Too sexually explicit for a worthy story with no real plot.
    Would never reccomended for Youth reading.

    Please re do the series with a different narrator

    Loved the story. Hated the narration. She used a bored one dimensional tone for all the males and did not convey the consent driven alpha vibe, AT ALL. 4 stars for the story. -2 for the narrator.

    Endlessly entertaining

    Really enjoyed this book. The narration isn’t great, the narrator’s voice is pleasant enough, and I actually didn’t hate how she did male characters, though I will say that her narration was definitely missing something. I actually didn’t like her performance the first time I listened to this series, but I guess it kinda grew on me? Idk... her pronunciation is awful - but I did enjoy some of her character voices... at least the ones that don’t sound like they belong in some cheesy Sunday morning cartoon from the 90’s. *Shrug* It gore on me a bit, but I think I will likely buy the physical or digital versions of the books now that I can’t stream these in any audible package for free

    Narrator is getting somewhat better ...

    The first couple of books this narrator read were cringe worthy on her performance. This one is less so. Story was good, a better narrator would have made listening to it more enjoyable. But, hopes are higher now for her performance to continue to improve as I listen to this series.

    good book

    this was a good book but that was mainly due to the Arthur's skill. of the siblings briac is and always will be my least favorite. Having a character who's sole personality traits are arrogant and bored is interesting at first but it makes them very predictable within within 20% of the book. there were no layers to the male character he just constantly demanded stuff and the female lead was equally predictable. what carrried this book and allowed me to finish was the side characters and thier various subplots.
