Description

They say family always sticks together, but when you're your dad's only lifeline and the whole world - humans, dragons, and gods - wants you dead, "family bonding" takes on a whole new meaning.

My name is Opal Yong-ae, and I'm in way over my head. I thought getting rid of my dad's bad luck curse would put things back to normal. Instead, I'm stuck playing caretaker to the Great Dragon of Korea. That wouldn’t be so bad if he wasn't such a jerk, or if every dragon on the planet wasn't out to kill him, or if he was my only problem.

Turns out, things can always get worse in the DFZ. When a rival spirit attacks my god/boss with the aim of turning the famously safety-optional city into a literal death arena with Nik as his bloody champion, I'm thrust onto the front lines and way out of my comfort zone. When gods fight, mortals don't usually survive, but I'm not alone this time. Even proud old dragons can learn new tricks, and with everything I love falling to pieces, the father I've always run from might just be the only force in the universe stubborn enough to pull us back together

Most satisfying conclusion to any fiction series

I don't say this lightly. I am a longtime and deeply committed Harry Potter fan. Rachel Aaron's Heartstrikers and DFZ series have earned their place next to those beloved stories. Potter fans that have been looking for other stories to fill some of that niche in their need for fiction, with a content/character interaction maturity level a little higher (but nothing that wouldn't make it onto Prime Time network TV quite easily - which makes it easier to get time to listen when we are stuck in the house with kids compared to some other fiction options) will love these books. This isn't just an escape from the current real world traumas, it is a reframing of things we go through on the macro and micro social levels that can help give the emotional framing to make progress.

Love, anger, pride, and acceptance!

Love, anger, pride, and acceptance. It's all rolled up into one book. Night Shift Dragons is the third installment of the DFZ trilogy. Our main character, Opal, is finally forced to make a real attempt at working on her relationships; like her new relationship with the DFZ, her shaky relationship with Nick , and the dreadful scraps of a father-daughter relationship.

Rachel Aaron does an EXCELLENT job with pacing the events in this book. Everything gets just enough page time. Issues aren't resolved in the snap of a finger, but also arent dragged out so that you stop caring. A perfect pace.

The dialogue between Opal and her father is just what I imagine a younger me would have had with my father in this situation.

There is a chapter in the book where I thought I knew what was coming. Because of that, I put the book down so I wouldnt get depressed about some sad ass scene. It turns out that I need to shut the hell up and just read the book 🤣 it went nothing like I assumed.

Every character changes by the end. Every character learns something about themselves and the others they are involved with in the series. Character Development and a good story arc. You can check that off the list.

Listen up folks. This is how you write a final fight scene. How many books build up and then leave you hanging. Though this isnt an action book, the final conflict is perfect for the tone of the story and characters traits. Gosh I love when writers give their all... these rare results are the reason I keep pushing through books until I find a gem.

I did have a few questions:
What happened to the sister? Should have had an epilogue about her. Did she still get what she wanted in the end? ... and why didnt Bob see any of this? Or did he??? That sneaky dragon 🤣

The narration by Emily Woo Zeller was perfect.

5 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 A-freakin-mazing Story! I laughed, I cried, I loved someone, I hated someone. I debate with myself how happy or sad this author has made me. I will talk to my boyfriend about what happened to the characters as if they are real people (and he will pretend to listen). The story telling is great and this book is one I'll return to in my time of need for something good to read.

Stellar finish.

Rachel Aaron and Emily Woo Zeller concluded this series perfectly. This might even be better than the Heart Striker conclusion.

excellent conclusion

utterly enjoyable and a nice conclusion to a nice spin-off series. just wish there were more cameos from heartstrikers other than that it's good, so is the narration as always

Strong Finish to an Excellent Series!

Very well done! Maybe even the best book of the series! So often I have been disappointed in the final book in a trilogy but this book ends very strong with especially good character development in almost all the characters! I also enjoyed brief cameos from the Heartstriker series, a little weird to hear them sound different - but understandable with different narrators.

The best so far

A terrific listen. I enjoyed the first two books in the series, but this installment was the best by far. It's an easy buy, and worth every minute. I am very excited for what comes next from this author.

still great

I worry about seaquals, but this was the best one yet. I missed that some returning voices from the previous story sounded so different, but I loved the story begining to end.

Nice ending

One thing, at least for me, that covers a lot of ills in a questionably written story is a strong and satisfying ending, and this series provided that. I found myself rolling my eyes often as the story proceeded, even to the point I was unsure if I would finish it. But the last half or third of the story picked up steam and while somewhat predictable, the reconciliation between father and daughter was well done.
