Description

A tormented dragon prince. A captured elven assassin. Duty demands they fight for their people, but love has other plans.  

Eroan, one of the last elven assassins, lives for one purpose: Kill the queen.   

He would have succeeded if not for her last line of defense: Prince Lysander. Now, captured and forced into the queen's harem, Eroan sees another opportunity. Why kill just the queen when he can kill them all? It would be simple, if not for the troubled and alluring dragon prince. A warrior, a killer, and something else...something Eroan finds himself inexplicably drawn to.

I couldn't wait for it to end

I cannot imagine liking two protagonists less than I did these two. I knew I should have backed out at chapter 2, but it was the only book I had downloaded on a long drive. I only have myself to blame. new rule of thumb: as soon as a mother is grabbing her son's junk, the book is going nowhere good.

Constant background noises

I like the story and the narrator, but the constant background noises makes it hard to listen to.

Regal narration by Cornell Collins

I absolutely love how Mr. Collins gave life to the characters. Very well done. Loved it! Can barely wait for book 2 to go live.

Halfway through, DNF

This book is just nothing but misery and rape-y situations. One of the main characters gets molested by his mother early in the book, and is then forced to watch her have sex with a man who is under some kind of magical mind control. This is her attempt at discouraging her son from being gay. I have a horrible suspicion that I was meant to be turned on by that scene. The story somehow manages to go downhill from there. Cornell Collins’ reading is the only reason I stuck with this as long as I did.

Fantastic Narration

Oh my gosh! I am in love with Cornell Collins's narration! I felt like I was thrust into the world of Lord of the Rings or a Dungeon and Dragon's campaign, but, you know, with dirty elves and dragons. Collins has won over a fan.

Now for the book.

I generally really enjoyed it. I loved the characters. I loved the setting. I wanted Eroan and Lysander to be happy and together with flowers and sunshine. I was properly invested to find out what happened from beginning to end. And because I highly enjoyed the characters and plot, I noticed some things that I found to be a bit lacking (for me, I don't know about others.)

This book is definitely character driven. As such, many environments seem to be void of detail and culture. It feels like we only graze the surface of where the characters came from. We only find out about the world's history towards the end of the novel, which I felt like would have helped center listeners if this was explored at the beginning. I never really had a good idea of what was where, who was how old, and why characters did what they did in regards to their culture. Yes, there were some soft explanations, but I really wanted more. More depth. More details. More world systems.

Oh, and things do get uncomfortable. This is a dark fantasy after all. However, I really didn't like Queen Mama's...affections...towards Lysander, especially at the beginning of the novel. That almost made me stop the whole book and put it away. But guys! I was so happy that I decided to keep going and follow through with the novel because I would have been disappointed otherwise.

I am for sure picking up book two!

first half was kind of pompous

headline said it all. the first half was a lot of long dialogue that didn't really help the story. without going into details and spoilers this book is post apocalyptic. felt like there could have been a lot more world building. story was rather original. looking forward to the next book.

3rd read, this time audio

I really love this book. It is emotional and well written. Its a story of self discovery, love, hate, sacrifice, death, and life. Two individuals who should hate each other, an Elf and a Dragon, but find themselves saving each other. Ive read this story twice this year on my kindle, before the audiobook came out. I really want to support this talented author. I did enjoy the audiobook, the narrator was excellent. My only reservation, and not the fault of the narrator, is I already had a "voice" in my head from my previous reads. The narrator's voice was not mine. My issue, not anyone else. I still enjoyed it tho.

Having already read this book 3 times now, you have got to read the second book, Iron & Fire. If this book guts you, Iron & Fire will tear your heart out. Eroan and Lysander's story continues and the steaks are much much higher. I really love these characters and am waiting with baited breath for Blood & Ice later this year.
