Isaac Morningstar III, or Zach to the few who know him, has hit rock bottom. Once an immortal, nearly-invincible dragon, he's been awakened only to have his powers and his treasure locked away until he can prove himself to be a trustworthy protector of humans. Since Zach has never liked humans, he's pretty sure he's going to end up back on ice. That is, until he meets sweet, curvy Erin, a human hairdresser who might just turn his world upside down.
Erin has a pretty routine life, but that ends when a tall, gorgeous man appears out of nowhere, claiming to be an ancient dragon with immeasurable power who wants her as his mate. She doesn't know whether to laugh or run for the hills. But when the mysterious stranger saves her life and needs her help she can't just turn away. Still, the closer she gets to Zach, the more she realizes there may just be something truly magical about him.
But as the forces around them close in, Zach is quickly realizing that the darkness lurking inside him may be greater than he anticipated. And the beast within may not be the only thing they have need to fear.
Warning: contains ferocious dragons, fearsome fights, fiery love scenes and a fiercely cute three-legged kitten that will steal your heart. The first in a brand new series with dragons unlike anything Terry has written!

This was my first audible book and I really enjoyed the experience. The narrator was easy to listen and easy to understand with clear diction.
This is the first book in the Awakened Dragon series which is linked to the Lions of Pride Island series it is Zach, Isaac Morningstar 111, and Erin's story. Zach's dragon has been restricted until he can prove that he can be trusted to keep the humans safe. Erin is an unsuspecting hairdresser who offers him a haircut when he shelters from the storm in her shop. Terry's books are always a great read and this is no exception , I love the humour in them, and this one is no exception. Well worth listening to.
It was better than reading the book. I love all of her stories. I can't wait until the rest of her books are on audible.
Zach is my favorite. Even though he acts tough, he is kind and sweet.
I haven't listened to her before but I hope she is narrating the other books in the series.
"Exciting and Romantic"
Interesting new character.
I really have nothing to compare it to. I think that Terry Bolryder's characters are all so unique.
Zach was my favorite.
Yes, I enjoyed listening to this book in one sitting. The story is so interesting and I loved the characters and storyline.
I enjoyed all the books in this series and enjoyed reading as well as listening to them.
"Keep the title -- it fits."
The narrator made the grouchy dragon fun to listen to. She did a great job with all of the characters. Sometimes, a narrator will not make characters of the opposite sex sound real and or makes the all sound the same. Ms. Eby did a wonderful job
I loved when Zack found Bo and held him.
I read this book some time ago. This "reread" story time was a joy for me. Ms. Eby made Zack seem like a sexy Eeyore. His negative attitude toward humans was a little funny. Then his awakening to the fact that not all humans were so bad such as Erin. The first book in the series set up the series and even the next book without detracting from this story. Zack is a medieval dragon awakened from cryogenic sleep to become a human protector--if he can learn to deal with humans and not want to eliminate them all. Erin is a positive person who sees the good in everyone. He decides he will watch her to see if she can change his mind. His reward will be to regain his currently restricted powers. The "boss" of the protectors will release him if he mates Erin. She just doesn't know it. Can he meet the requirements? Will he just be acting or will she win him over? Another great read as are all of Terry Bolryder books.
Onyx dragon is a great start to a great series. It is funny, sexy and different. The narrator does a awesome job reading. Looking forward to seeing the other books in this series on audible. I also have this series on my kindle..
Terry Bolryder does it again! Fantastic job with the story line and narrator was good. Can't wait for the next audio!
