Summary

Evil beware. The son of the Dragon King doesn’t check his temper at the door.  

The impulsive youth Nath Dragon knows what he must do to earn his scales. Still trapped in human form, he hunts down the dragon poachers - who are killing and enslaving his kin - with a vengeance. Accompanied by a dwarf named Brenwar Bolderguild, the brazen warriors clash against the world full of orcs, elves, ogres, trolls, goblins, and men in order to save his brethren. 

But unforeseen dangers lurk in the shadows. The sinister scheme of High Priestess Selene and her dragon master, Gorn Grattack, threaten all of dragonkind. And in a moment of violent fury, Nath is cursed for all time. 

Now, Nath - armed with the magical sword called Fang - sets out on a perilous path toward redemption. At its end, the ultimate battle awaits him, when he must confront the powerful evil lurking within and the wicked dragon army sworn to defeat him. And if Nath does not prevail, the fate of dragonkind is doomed. 

If you love dragons of all sorts and sizes, young heroes with godlike powers in the Percy Jackson series, then you can’t miss with this fast-paced, action-packed, magic-filled, dangerously addictive fantasy adventure!

Bad Dungeons and Dragons

What disappointed you about The Chronicles of Dragon Collection: Series 1 Omnibus, Books 1-10?

See below

What was most disappointing about Craig Halloran’s story?

See below

Would you be willing to try another one of Lee Alan’s performances?

Overly dramatic

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Chronicles of Dragon Collection: Series 1 Omnibus, Books 1-10?

I would have not added this to the audible library

Any additional comments?

Well I lasted 20 minute of this book, and I'll explain why.

Picture the scene you are 8 years old and playing D&D for the 1st time, the DM starts to tell you a story and has a whole range of sound effect from bolts being shot from a crossbow, heavy breathing of main character running, to crickets chirping in the night, that’s how this book comes across, and all this in 20 mins of story starting.

If you are a serious fantasy reader/listener and love the depth and complexity that many authors are able to create with just words alone i.e. Brandon Sanderson and the Stormlight archives series – the near constant sound effects, and music in chronicles of the dragon will drive you nuts.

If my account was still active I'd return it

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Too many sound effects and tried way too hard.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Dissapointment

Any additional comments?

I seem to have fallen into the same trap as some of the previous reviewers. Saw a 50 hour book and assumed it would be for adult reading. Boy was I wrong from the first minute with the sound effects the wailing the panting as the character runs I was turned off. Half the enjoyment of reading or listening to a book is that you as the audience/reader create the story in your head with some imagination. This "audio book", and I use the term lightly because it is more of an audio play like they have on the radio, takes half the fun out of reading in my eyes.

Not what I'd expected...

...and a bit disappointed. The quality of the recording is, well, odd. There is the narrator speaking in your ear, and then the characters who sound like they are in a pillow case about 20 feet away. Just bizarre. And - judging on length of this book - I thought it would be an adult fantasy book... Perhaps in the Terry pratchet style, or Tolkien. But no. This seems to be aimed at the same crowd as the Twilight series, except I can't imagine a teen having the patience for a 50 hour book? Anyway it's not great, but it's OK. Get it with a credit, don't buy it.

Wrong category

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would possibly recommend it to a child/parent as my kids (pre-teens) enjoyed it, personally I found it irritating with the idiotic sound effects and voices always in the background.

Poor writing badly read.

Poor in every aspect. Not an audio book and not a dramatization. A waste of time and money.

I cannot continue with this.

I cannot bring myself to finish this series I made it to chapter 18. I don't like the main character as he seems to have been written as an idiot. The performance of the voice actor is very good and is this series redeeming factor.

Entertaining book,

What made the experience of listening to The Chronicles of Dragon Collection: Series 1 Omnibus, Books 1-10 the most enjoyable?

The story is good, and it moves along really well. At first its really non stop action, it almost feels forced. I guess the author was using battle type scenes as his tool for character development. About a 1/3 of the way through the book the characters split and start having different story lines. Nothing new there, but the switching back and forth happened to often for me. I understand why you switch scenes right before something is about to happen but it was literally every 3 to 4 minutes for a while, it was very distracting.

Any additional comments?

This is a performance where there is lots of sound effects. It can be entertaining and add to the book, if done well. The sound effects where done well but when they where added into the recording during production the volume levels where not paid attention to. This over sight made the book really hard to listen to it would go from incredibly loud to barely being able to hear what someone is saying.

want more

4.9 stars if i could rate it accurately! Want to see how the series continues but waiting for another book bundle of similar time length (50+ hrs). I drive OTR and selecting the next title in a series doesnt do me any good when im trying to liisten and negotiate traffic at the same time.

Narrator

The book may have been good but I couldn't get through it because of Lee Alan's voice. His character changes all sound like whiney little girls.

Waste of time

I couldn't get past book 4. Too repetitive. Lacked descriptive language. I would expect to hear/read combat dialog like this- "I threw a right hook at his face, yet he brought up his forearm blocking me." in a series that is combat heavy. Instead you get 2 word sentences like "I punched. he blocked. I punched again."... just no...

Childish but expected

At first I thought I wouldn't like it. The story was a bit childish but I am a kid at heart. The story is predictable and sometimes silly. Characters are fun. The ten books together seemed long but we at least got to a respectable and expected ending.
