Summary

A thousand years have passed since a dragon has been seen in the world. Science and technology have replaced magic, which has dwindled until it has become little more than an element of myth and legend.

There are those who still have dragon blood flowing through their veins, distant descendants of the mighty creatures of old. These rare humans have the power to cast magic, the power to heal, and the power to craft alchemical weapons capable of starting wars...or ending them. But they are feared for those powers, and in recent centuries they have been hunted nearly to extinction.

The few remaining survivors must find a way to change how humanity perceives them or be lost to the world forever.

The Dragon Blood Omnibus includes three full-length novels of action, magic, and romance: Balanced on the Blade's Edge, book one; Deathmaker, book two; Blood Charged, book three.

Frothy Fantasy

This is a rollicking swashbuckling tale of a sorceress out of time, a rakish pilot, and various sidekicks. The first book tells of Sardelle and her soul blade and how she encounters Ridge and there is quite a heavy emphasis on romantic connection between the protagonists.

Book 2 tells of one of Ridge's squad and her battle to escape prison. Helping her is a pirate with the nickname Deathbringer.

The third book brings them all together on a mission for the King although the emphasis is heavily on Ridge and Sardelle.

This is no Way of Kings. It is an enjoyable romp with just enough background and description to get you into that world but nothing more. It made a nice change of pace from the intense epics of Brandon Sanderson that I had been listening to up till this point.

A nice distracting listen to and I will get the next one in the series if that's any indication.

The author took a little getting used to as she used quite harsh accents for some of the characters but after a while my ear got used to it. She's not the best reader I've heard but she wasn't awful either.

All in all a reasonable series and worth a 'credit' from Audible.

Great Adventure,

This story is just about perfect for me. Great characters, humour, romance, lots of action and adventure and I love the mixture magic and machines. Caitlin Davies's performance is superb, especially of the snarky Jaxi Character. Can't wait for the rest of the series to be added to Audible.

Suitable for teenager not adults

one star is a bit harsh It's a slow moving story, hardly anything happens in the first book of much significance. but it's an easy to listen to book. the romance was very cringe and more suited to a teenage crush at high school than between grown adults. book 2 started on a good premise but again you can see the same cringy romance developing between very unlikely and total strangers randomly. it's hard to listen to. especially the narration just makes my skin crawl

Narrator takes a while to get used to.

I read these books a few years ago and loved them. I was so happy to see the series here on Audible as I only read the first 3. However the narrator doesn't feel very natural as she reads. She sounds a bit robotic, like she's the voice that does automated phone call things. But after a while, if you stick with it you can start to overlook her voice. She does some character voices well though.

easy lisent and a good buy

A little magic , à little action and a little romance make for a easy lisent. Don't think à would get the books separatly but the 3 are just perfect for a peek in to a new univers

Good set of books

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Love the concept

Brilliant story, narrator is a bit irritating with the way she reads. Her voice in general is ok, but her actual reading of the text has a tendency to emphasise words that dont need it, or places that need excitement are read blandly. I also found that she'll use an accent sometimes for a character and the same character gets a different accent another time.
Its just as well i enjoyed the story enough or it would have put me off finishing.
I am getting the rest of the books as i need to know what happens.

Great Story

Thought the story was excellent and the idea of old and new eras merging was epic. But I struggled listening to this because I didn't quit take to the narrators voice.

Fun romp

Easy to listen to and enjoyable series.

The narration occasionally grated, the accent was a touch harsh at times.
