You will fall in love with a dragon

Book 1- This one introduced a whole new world! I emphasize with the main character as I too have a bad leg! I can’t wait to see her overcome everything Book 2- this book gives us more questions than answers! But now I need to know what happens next so book 3 here I come! Book 3- this one is my favorite so far! More action, a bit of Romance and then you are hooked for book 4! Book 4- the more i listen to these books the more I love the dragons personality!! I enjoy the story line on this 1! Book 5- this one gives you more mystery and more want! I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Great characters, especially the heroine

A fantastic epic story with twists and turns, beautiful dragons and horrors that you wont forget. This is a story over 20 books of 2 and a bit hours listening each Make sure you get them all, you wouldnt want to miss any. Narration fits well with the heroine of these books. Enjoyed learning about the dragons and the growing politics of this world. Looking forward to the next box set to continue the story. very moreish

good book

good story, shame about the wooden "narrator ". she reads, rather than narrates, with a strong american accent, hard to understand at times.

Get the all the sets :)

I have read the books before listening to the audio books and it can be enjoyed either on its own or after reading the book. I find it great listen and you will get in grossed in the story..... I have to set timer if listening to it a night or I wouldn't get any sleep. The story is great looking forward to the rest

Fun story; terrible narration

This is a fun series of novellas for any age. I mean, who doesn't love dragons? I love the basic story here, and I like the main protagonist and her interesting collection of friends and allies, but it took effort for me to get past the terrible narration and stay immersed in the story. It sounded as if the narrator was reading this book for the first time, aloud, and she was not good. This was more than 11 hours of: misspoken words (I'm still not sure if one particular character is male, female, or perhaps both); terribly done, inconsistent character voices; poor cadence; and her mispronunciations are so bad that every time she says the word "crutch" I hear "crotch." I'm probably going to just read the next 15 installments.

It Sucks

I'm sorry but the person reading is not doing these books justice. She couldn't do any different voices. The whole time she reads it sounds like she is eating. I wish I could get my money back.

Interesting Enough

2.5 stars The story itself got 3.5 stars. It was written fairly well and I admit to be caught by the story line. Highly likely I'll at least get the next installment in the series (episodes 6-10) at least but I was not impressed by the narration and rated the performance with 1 star. So more than likely I'll get the ebook and read rather than listen to the audiobook.

Struggled to finish

intrigued by storyline, characters and dragon antics. Very disappointed by narrator with failure to differentiate character voices and monotone descriptions. Will not continue this series.

ok story, poor narration

I had a hard time finishing this set primarily due to the narrator. She does not differentiate the voices and her pacing and of pronunciation on occasion pulled me completely out of the story. I like the heroine of the story and think the storyline has possibilities but cannot go any further with this narrator.

Narrator ruins the story

I love the story, but the narrator really ruins it for me. She reads the texts to quickly and with confusing expression. She is able to do some voice changes but she makes the voice of the heroine's love interest sound like a small frail girl. I want to keep listening but her narration of this story is really ruining it for me.

poor reader

story line is good but writing very simple. Performance almost ruins the book. reader mispronounces words, no versatility of voices, Grown male has more high pitched voice than the girl.

Wonderful Stories

What can I say, I love Sarah's stories! This set was no exception. She writes wonderful fantasy and gives her characters so much development, they feel like real people. The world building brings the Dragon School world alive and you can see it vibrantly. The only issue I had with the audible form of the stories is the narrator. There are so many mispronounced words that I found myself correcting them out loud. It was really frustrating for me, but I'm an acknowledged grammar Nazi. If you can get past that, and if you enjoy stories like the Dragonriders of Pern, you'll enjoy the Dragon School series by Sarah K.L. Wilson also. I highly recommend you give them a try!

really D level stuff

Almost everything about this is bad. The main character is such an engaging character but she can't be expected to carry this pile of garbage. No character could. The real issue here before I get too ahead of myself is the narrator. Holy heck is it bad. They constantly mispronounce words. (gaped has been pronounced gapped twice that I have noticed) They pause at weird times. Don't pause at weird times. Awful. Just in the writing itself there is almost no merit. The pacing makes no sense. I feel like the author was trying to create some sense of intensity but the first three books take place in what feels like an hour. No one else in the story is even worth paying any attention to. If you do pay attention you either immediately dislike them or you just grow to dislike them. It is one of those stories where the main character is constantly overlooked because she is disabled and she has to overcome adversity to gain their respect..... every. single. chapter. Everyone in the story is an idiot except for the girl and her dragon blah blah blah. Tedious doesn't begin to describe the challenges this girl and the readers face. I won't be finishing this book. I would tell someone I hate to get it but I'm afraid they would think I'm an idiot and I won't give them the satisfaction.
