Summary

The survival of the last living dragons rests with me and my misfit friends. So... yeah. No pressure. Mind you, this whole thing would be easier if two of our number weren’t hell-bent on killing each other. Rayth and Nyx have both been hiding secrets for a very long time, but now they face a choice. Let go of their ugly pasts, or watch the future burn to the ground. 

We won’t be able to hide five hungry, growing dragons in the mountains forever. As soon as someone catches sight of them, every soldier in Utrea will be after us. And there’s no way we can fight for our dragons’ survival when we’re this busy fighting among ourselves. I’ve always been the queen of questionable life choices, but falling for four proud, stubborn, damaged men at the same time is a new benchmark even for me. What we’re building with the dragons - and each other - could be amazing beyond belief. It could also end in tragedy beyond measure. 

The Dragon Mistress, by USA Today best seller R. A. Steffan, is a medium-burn fantasy romance series where the heroine doesn’t have to choose one person at the end. It is part of the Eburosi Chronicles, along with The Horse Mistress and The Lion Mistress. It’s not necessary to have listened to any of the other books in the series before starting the Dragon Mistress arc.

Action and Dragons what more could you want

I enjoyed this book. Especially the scenes with the dragons. I love the way they interact with the humans and each other. Reading or listening to this book almost makes it seem like they are real creatures. You also got a lot more background about why the four men are so damaged and the reason they like they are. Great soldiers (so lots of action) but broken, somehow making they seem more human. So this book contains action, mythical beasts and romance or sex scenes.
This is book two and you definitely need to have listened to the first book as it follows on from where it left off, with Frella and her four damaged companions trying to bond with the last five remaining dragons in the world. The problem is to do that forms a life bond meaning if one dies so does the other but with time running out before they are discovered it is the only way the Dragons have to survive. The next problem is the Dragon choose who they want to attach themselves to and it looks like they have chosen Frella and her friends. The biggest problem is there is still a bounty on the dragons heads.
Gwendolyn is just perfect as the narrator. With some of the chapters being told from Frella's point of view and some from her companions it was easy to tell who was speaking.

Good story; a little too much of the sex

I really enjoy this story, but I have to say (surprising for me) that the MMF sex scene went on a little too long. I was more interested in the stories of Nyx and Rayth, along with the links to the dragons. I would have liked to hear more about those emotional issues than the physical sex scene. Still, good overall, and I highly recommend this story, and I eagerly await the next installment.

The narration of Ms. Druyor was excellent as always. She always hits the emotional high points perfectly!

I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request. This is my honest, voluntary review.

Addictive Series

I love the strife and undertones between Rayth and Nyx and their need for past secrets . I loved that they're all bound together on a glorious and noble mission of saving the dragons fir the world, and not just a selfish mission. Read along and follow their losses, adventures. and wins in this fantasy land. Anxious for book 3. The narrator was fantastically awesome.

Even better than book one

I really enjoyed this 2nd instalation in the dragon mistress series. This is a wonderful story in a fantasy world where shifters and dragons are real. This is mixed in with a deeply emotional poly romance with some hot MM action. also the narration is excellent.

good follow up to the previous book

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I thought this was a good follow up to the previous book in the series. I thought the narration is just as good in this book as it was in the first one. The author does a good job of continuing where the previous book left off. I think you could still enjoy this book without having read/listened to book 1 (or book 8 in the overall series), but I think you'd enjoy this one more if you do. All in all, I think this series is well balanced and entertaining.

Wonderful Story & Amazing Narration

This picks up right where the first one ends, and it doesn’t disappoint. I loved everything about this book. The dragons, raw emotions and action-packed story had me on the edge of my seat.

I enjoy Frella’s personality and her easy-going attitude. I also love that she usually speaks before she thinks giving a much more realistic feel to her character.

The other characters are wonderful companions for Frella and I enjoyed listening to the love, care and compassion unfold between all of them.

I’m super excited to know what happens in the next installment.

Gwendolyn Druyor does another amazing job with bringing the characters to life. She’s easy to understand and her reading flows smoothly. I could listen to her all day long.

not for me .

I was supplied with this audio book free of cost & in return I offered to give it my honest & unbiased review . Unfortunately I didn't like , " The Dragon Mistress Book 2 " as much as I hoped I would . I guess Dragons are not for me . The narrator Gwendolyn Druyor did very good , she has an interesting voice & tried to give life to this story . I sure there will be many who adore this book . As I said , I'm not one of them ..

Good story. I like that it gives us some more background information on the characters as well as continuing the story. The narration is good and fits the characters well.

Read book 1, then come back for more!

The Dragon Mistress 2 takes up from where the Dragon Mistress ends, and it doesn’t let you go. Our not exactly merry band of 5 has to learn to work together, and it’s a journey for everyone. We get injured dragons, bonding, and a very dangerous bandit attack. While middle installments of multi-volume books can get flabby, this work was trim and promises a great finale. Having read several of Steffan’s books, I feel this could be at least a 4 book series, but I’m not sure how many the author actually has planned.

Other books from this author have tended to be from a single character’s point of view. Steffan mixed it up a bit by giving us three different characters’ points of view in this story. It was necessary to move the action along at an interesting pace. I also like how we got to see the other characters and learn of their backstories and character arcs. The prince is presented as a bastard, and I don’t mean parentage. I wondered how in the world he would be redeemed as a character. I was definitely with Frella as far as skepticism, but by the end of the book, we get the first hint of things to come.

By this point, I’ve been reading Steffan (or more accurately listening to Steffan as performed by Druyor) for three years now. She’s a prolific writer, but this book feels like a level up in some ways because she’s allowing herself to try new things. I would say it’s definitely working, and it’s keeping my interest.

Performance-wise, Gwendolyn Druyor brings the high level of skill she always has. My favorite voice in this story is the one she uses for Eldris (in my mind Idris Elba, but not). It is a male version of the lilt she uses for the female vampire Oksana from the Circle of Blood series, and it’s fun to hear.

I have a cover art nitpick. It makes better sense to me that the cover where Frella is holding knives should go with the first book where she’s seen using the knives; and the cover with Frella and a crossbow should go for the second book where she’s using a crossbow. I know this won’t change because the art has already changed once. It’s not a deal breaker for the book inside. It was just something that bugged me.

Bottom line:
The book is for Steffan fans who’ve already read this series.
It’s for new fans who like dragons and/or reverse harem fantasy.

Caveat: If you are a new fan, this is not a series where you can skip books. Do yourself a favor and go back to book one. Or... stick around a while and wait for Steffan to release an omnibus edition as she has done with the other series within the Eburosi Chronicles.
