Summary

My name is Dima, and I'm a Dragon. I'm also going to die soon. It's a battle I've waged most of my life, but now the odds are looking crappy. Before I go up flames, I have to find a way to save my horde and make sure my secret treasure is safe. There is one way I could stick around a bit longer, but the men I've met aren't exactly lining up to save me.

What in hell does a Dragon Princess have to do to find a mate? Offing my father, the reviled Dragon King, would be one way to go. He has a penchant for eliminating any male who shows interest - not to mention he's been trying to kill me for almost 500 years. So my brilliant plan is to take out my father in a blaze of glory - pun intended. However, I have to suck it up and do some stuff I don't want to do. For example, getting along with Dragons who don't trust me is a horrific challenge even though we share the same goal. That's why I aligned myself with the ragtag pack of shifters who accepted me and my secret treasure unconditionally. They're my friends now, and I'm keeping them. I'll fry anyone who dares to speak against my Werewolves, my Werecows, and the fabulous gay Vampyre named Dwayne.

Unfortunately the Weres who love me don't have the kind of firepower I need to take out my father. To get that I have allied myself with a dangerous group of Dragons known as The Resistance. Staying away from the sexy, pompous, fire-breathing blowhard of a leader is turning out to be a full-time job. And no...he's not even in the running for the mate. Mutual incineration would be inevitable - or sexual combustion. You see...Dragons aren't the easiest of the species to get along with. You can dress us up and take us out, but at the end of the day we're still the idiots who like a little friendly bloodshed and sex - make that lots of sex.

My life keeps getting more and more complicated, but I've run out of options. I'm about to run out of time, too. I'm learning there's nowhere to run and nowhere to hide from destiny.

NARRATION IS AMAZEBALLS!

If you could sum up No Were to Run in three words, what would they be?

HILARIOUS + CAPTIVATING + HEARTWARMING

What other book might you compare No Were to Run to and why?

I do not think I can compare, this book stands alone in a awesome way. It is a perfect addition to the series SHIFT HAPPENS, it was so good to get to know Dema and her son, her love story made laugh and cry.

Have you listened to any of Abby Craden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No but I sure will now, her voice was soothing and I could not stop listening, I love how she changes her voice for different characters and its PERFECTION, not once I felt lost. I do not understand one bit why are so many complaining about narrations. I you read the review and are wondering if you should skip this book DO NOT! I will say the first few minutes when the voice is her as a child it was a bit dramatic for my taste but that does not mean it was bad, Im just not a fan of overly dramatic narration it makes me roll my eyes a lot. But it quickly switches to her as an adult and her narration is fabulous, all the voices are perfect, even when she does her kid voice is so cute!! Searching for more Abby Craden narrations book, right after this I am done with this review.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The rightful queen!

Any additional comments?

YOU WILL LOVE THIS BOOK! Dena is a perfect addition to the series! Im a big fan!

Meh.

Loved the first two in series and narration. This one was just ok. The story was also just ok. I wonder if it would have been better with a different narrator.

series

I didn't like the change in voices from books 1&2 to book 3. when it's a great series like this as listeners it helps to keep the voices the same. we fall in love with those characters to learn knew characters all over again. its like it's new characters when its not. but wonderful and excellent story line.

Run Were and Dragons

Dima, a Dragon of royal decent, has been on the run to protect herself from her father for over 400 years. In order to survive she needs to mate, or die. She doesn't mind dying, so long as she can kill her father in her last act of revenge before she dies. Due to her fathers control in the Dragon world, she can't trust any of them.

Finding it hard to trust anyone, Dima befriends the most unusual group of misfit Were family ever. Werewolves, Werecows, Wererabbits, and most famously the most flamboyant gay vampire of all time, Dwayne. Individually they're all nuts, but together they're a passionate and loyal family, and Dima's newly adopted family.

When the Dragons resistant team recruits Dima to help them unthrown her father, Dima agrees, so long as they accept her new allied family of misfit Were's. Dragons aren't know to be the easiest to get along with, but when Dima meets the General, another Dragon shifter, she isn't taking his crap regardless of how strong and sexy he is. Dima has her own agenda and set of priorities and if the General doesn't agree to join her, then she'll do it on her own...even if it means that things get more complicated.

Abby Craden does a fantastic job narrating Dima's trials and tribulations as a strong woman trying to make it on her own with her merry-were'men, were'women, were'cows, and the ever precious diva Dwayne.

Another amazing story, Ms. Peterman!!!

Dragons Rock!!! Add in the werewolves, vampires and all the other fun loving Supes and humans of this fantastical world and there is no way you can't love this story as well as the rest of the series. Funny, steamy and all the family and friend relationships combine with mystery, danger and so much love, keeps a reader/listener coming back. HIGHLY recommend.

Lost Me at chapter 15

Spoiler Alert..


Maria's voice was unacceptable. she sounded as a woman one chapter and then as a teenager in the next.

Also, Maria & Dima are only 14 years apart, but Dima was 10 when she escaped and saw her brother being killed. How is it that her brother was able to sire a kid 4 years afterwards? Unless dragon pregnancies last 4 years. Yes, I know this is fiction but sometimes tying a story together helps.

Main character also became weak here. There's no back story to the love interests. after 1 week of knowing each other, they got mad at each other because they didn't trust each other and know their history? ugh.

I like to be immersed in books and visualize the story and characters, this one, not so much.

The vampire series from this author is much better. I laughed, I cried, I stayed up late listening to it.

Great narrator and story

The story had done great twists and a lot of fun. The narrator did a wonderful set of voices and her performance reeled me in

Painful to listen to

The story was slow and there was very little humor compared to the first two installments, but I could have still enjoyed this book with different narration. The narrator didn't seem to have read the first two books and had very little grasp of the cannon of the characters. She portrayed granny (who is the equivalent of 40 years old in health) as a 108 year old nursing home abuse victim and Jr. (Ph.d scientist) as an illiterate 12 year old whose been held back to 3rd grade and a 485 year old dragon as a 14 year old girl and gave absolutely no emotion to the main character. I don't know who produced this and allowed it to move forward but I recommend getting this is print.

another narrator to use sparingly

The story itself is almost as good as the first two in the series. But the narration, It's ok - until she tries to do different voices. She has Essie sounding like a 60yr old 4pack a day smoker most of the time. Granny sounds much more frail than her written description, and she had Junior sounding like a complete dope. I thought the narrator had used the wrong voice in some spots, but when she used her Nicolai voice to say "I've never been more attracted to a man..." it kinda brings things to a halt. back up and try to find what was missed.
