Awesome, amazing and so needed. Like Michael said in the author’s Notes we really needed to find out what was happening on Earth while Bethany and is in space. Thank you for writing such an amazing off branch to the series . You write a fantastic post apocalyptic, dystopian complement to Michael’s Kurtherian Gambit books . I love that you took TH and made him into part of this world. Thank you from all Michael Anderle’s die hard fans for creating such a riveting , cohesive Story that gels together with the timeline and Michaels main story arc. I will definitely be checking out your other books. Also I love Kate Rudd She is one of my all-time favourite narrators and I’m glad that if I wasn’t listening to Emily Baresford I’m listening to Kate instead because Emily is incredible How she did over 200 distinct voices il never know. But Kate is in my top 5 narrators so I’m a happy lil wolf :) .I hope this came out okay As I dictated it to Siri as I am having trouble with my eyes If not and you have some really random words I’m very sorry but hope you get a laugh out of it anyway. Until the next book, Amy

As requested i was given a review copy of this book in return for an unbiased review,I don't see the point is starting a series on book 3 so I took a chance and bought books 1 and two.That was a chance I am so so glad I took.This series is explosive,amazing I wanted more and K.A Finn and Keith Michaelson gave it to me.We have come such a long long way frem Griffin being an out law in the foundation's eyes. This book is a great addition to the series. For a short(ish) book is sure packs in a lot of different things. At different points I cried in sadness, and at others I cried in happiness and at others I laughed out loud.The narration is perfect for the series. Michaelson nails the male personas and also does a good job with voicing the females. These are two total pros who handle all their characters beautifully one by writing and creating them and the other by bringing them to life.Top notch Sci Fi.Unique perspective and story line.Outstanding

Richard Fierce is a complete wiz at weaving stories in and around characters that have amazing depth and motivation.

What starts off pretty slow build till you actually can't stop listening... there's good back story woven in, crafting (a must for anyone who loves this genre) and intense action.

The time totally whizzed past me, and I wanted more. Some parts, I literally was on the edge of my seat. A total joy to the ears, and it made the book go so much quicker. I believe Richard and Skyler nailed this one, and I'm so excited for more.

Now for some deeper thoughts.

As I said the plot itself was slow to get going, I do admit that there were some word choices and lengthy sentences that even made me think twice about the meaning, but it really didn't detract from the story.Skyler Morgan was fantastic and made me care all the more,a perfect pairing of author and narrator

Overall this is great book with potential to become a series. And I do hope it becomes one
I really think/hope the writer has a lot more up his sleeve for these characters and I can't wait for more.

A great concept and pretty good story, which kept me intrigued and wanting to discover what happens, A clever idea which leads into an equally good storyline.The writing does match the sophistication of the story. The style is simple and very elegant , with frequent repetition and a high proportion of
dialogue, To be fair to the author, the way in which people talk in real life is usually very different from dialogue in a book, with good reason - rarely are people slickly smart and articulate in everyday conversation so, quite possibly, the way in which these characters talk is far more realistic than is most fictional conversation. Which makes for a good listen.
accentuated by a talented narrator with great command of performance skills and multiple voices. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.As always this is my honest opinion .

The story, the characters, the pace -- everything is perfect There are so many other things left unsaid, only a fraction of the story told in this installment, in spite of its overall complexity. Dragon's Future has the potential to become a worldwide phenomenon with an upcoming movie, but the series has the potential to become a representative of a unique and daring wave of YA literature. This being said, the sequel cannot come fast enough! Esther hardcastle made me cry, laugh,gasp and her narration was utter beauty.Especially at the start of the book .It was tenderly heartbreaking.I have listened to another book that she narrated but it is so wildly different I couldn't believe it. I enjoyed the other one but didn't fully realize her range and how much power she could pour in to the words of this enchanting tale weaving a spell around the listeners .I have never read anything by Kandi J Wyatt before but now I will be actively looking for other books by her.Together author and narrator a total dream team.Bold, imaginative and incredibly thrilling, Dragon's Futuresets the bar up a notch with this vivid portrayal of duty versus free-will. This blend of fantasy with just a touch of dystopian flavor will make the readers devour every word, delighting in a gorgeously written story about freedom, destiny, Magic and so so much more. It's an instant favorite of mine and I hope that if you haven't read it yet, you will pick it up on the first occasion, because Dragon's Future is worth every praise it got.

Outstanding,Complex,fantastical and even educational.I didn't get bored for an instant. Never a sense of padding, or randomness in the plot. Indeed, it takes a turn I didn't see coming. With hindsight, there was some foreshadowing, but it was either too subtle, or I was too engrossed to notice it. Love all the characters- even the not so nice ones become increasingly interesting as the series moves on. Just when you think you have it all figured out, a curved ball gets thrown.
Very well narrated too. Earlier reviews suggest a not-so-great narrator....the books must surely have been redone because I'm super-fussy when it comes to narration, and I couldn't fault this. Leanne Lea's work was beautiful.
Really looking forward to the next book in the series......it promises to be a good one!Daniel Jeffries intelligence shines through in this creative work , very impressing and awe-inspiering.I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.As always this is my honest opinion .

Exciting ,funny,sexy .yes please bring on book 2!The title suggests there are more books to come in this series, and while there are lots of hooks /additional characters who could go on to lead their own stories, this particular story is nicely wrapped up with no gaping loose ends.
A great listen, and I will look out for future books by R.Ayala.C.Abells' performance is excellent. Characters have distinctive voices (i.e differentiable), the pacing and speed of the story was well done.

Disgraced during the Demon War, Dwarf investigator Snazdaggin Kundarik (Spade to his friends) wants nothing more than a desk to sleep on, a bottle of grog to drink, and the occasional easy case for quick pay. Then a mysterious female Elf from the posh side of town shows up and offers him exoneration for his past sins and lots of gold. All he has to do is follow her brother and report his activities. Simple, right? He should have known better. The simple job soon spirals out of control.

This is a light, fun, gently humourous book which feels remarkably substantial and, despite the oddities, real. I loved it and can wholeheartedly recommend it to other listeners. My deep thanks to the rights holder who freely gifted me my copy of Malaise Falchion: The Spade Case Files , and so introduced me to Jack Wayne I enjoyed it so much that I have already requested another book narrated by him. He has a voice like great bourbon and warm honey and portrayed Spate our resident gumshoe detective exceedingly well.He made him sound like an old black and white movie detective in a long cote a hat and a cigar in his mouth wondering where his next drink was coming for and getting tangled up with some dame.That's the mental image I got anyway ...even though he no human thats still the vibe I got.Making him a dwarf just rolled this book in to my wheelhouse :) And as it goes Spade does indeed get tangled up with "some dame"which leads him down a crazy path filled with.Elf Clans,Necromancers,zombies,teleportation,Magical assassins ,People with blindspots for family ,a twin tragedy dilemma,Dragons,spells,And lets face it general hi-jinx ensue.
Jack Wayne was the perfect narrator for this,his voice is deep and has an amazing timbre to it but he still manages to pull off Liz's voice wonderfully.Liz is my favorite character.what urban fantasy female addict doesn't love a hot lizard lady who can kick some major butt and has her bow and arrow and can transmogrify .My favorite part was 100% the "Dragon Line" it is like this worlds airline.I was in stitches as the "Air hosted " went through the "safety" protocols although I loved Spades assistant krislik.Join Spade and his merry band of misfits on this their mission to stop a weapon from devastating the world as they know it with the big threat from the Colder coven.I promise It is epicly worth your time and credit.
