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.

Commentaires

"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.

Great Book

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

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 the narrator who takes over for the last few books makes her sounds like perfection in my opinion.

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.

Love her voice !

I love the writers voice and dialogue. My only problem is the men, although sexy, border on abusive. I think it gives women an unhealthy view of what's manly. I mean name calling and pushing her around. So she's strong, she can take it, but should she? I love dragons but maybe I think, less name calling and physical violence towards the women they love.

Too much whining and complaining

An hour in and I can't finish. I love Hollie she was great. I enjoy strong female leads but for a soild 30 minutes all she does is complain, call him names and be a complete pain. I just can't listen to anymore of this story.

Hooked to the series!

After listening to this story, I'm officially hooked to the series! I love how while this story is primarily about Briec and Talaith, it's also about all the siblings and everything else that's happening now that Anwynn is queen. Loving all the strong, sassy and capable female leads! The only thing I didn't like was how immature Izzy was, she didn't act anything like a strong 16 year old who has survived the worst and has been on the run most of her life. I hope she grows up a bit in the next book.

Blood, battle, and beautiful sexy characters.

I'm really loving this author, the scenery of landscape and body scape are painted for the listener to enjoy and grasp the world and events. I look forward to further books.
