Summary

Years ago, the skies ripped open and the world was destroyed in fire and ash. Dragons - once creatures of legend - are the enemy. Vicious and unpredictable, they rule the skies of the ruined cities, forcing humanity to huddle behind barricades for safety.

Claudia's a survivor. She scrapes by as best as she can in a hard, dangerous world. When she runs afoul of the law, she's left as bait in dragon territory. She only has one chance to survive - to somehow tame a dragon and get it to obey her.

Except the dragon that finds her is as wild and brutal as any other...and he's not interested in obeying. What he is interested in is a mate.

Contains mature themes.

Interesting start to the series but...

As a devout follower of Ruby's Ice Planet Barbarians, I was expecting a bit more world building and background. There is quite a bit in this book but somehow it doesn't have the same pace and interest the IPB series has. The characters are well laid out and you get to know their motivations really well. The dystopian society that Ruby creates is also fascinating and we get to meet a few other players in their town that help to lay the foundation. I want to know more about where the Drakoni came from and why but I guess you gotta leave something for later in the series.

In the meantime though, the 3 stars were on account of the inconsistencies. Maybe because Ruby did such a bang up job of creating the most amazing Ice Planet and back story I'm not expecting inconsistencies, but a few of them are there and they do pull me out of the story sometimes. For example, how does he know some of her thoughts but not others? How is it they land in the midst of a barracks and soldiers don't swarm him the minute he turns human? Little bits kept jumping out to me as I listened. I guess I've been spoiled by the IPB series because once I'm in those books, I'm literally in that world and completely immersed. I didn't feel like that with this one.

Having said that, it is a good story. Claudia and Kyle did make be bark out the odd laugh here and there. And you do want Kyle to literally take a bite out of the Captain of the Guard and the Mayor because they are such turds (excuse the 6 yr old language!) The narrators do a great job of bringing it to life though I did chuckle and roll my eyes a bit when Kyle's voice had to repeat the madness mantra a few too many times in every which way he could think of. Points to him for making it different each time!

I will be buying the 2nd in the series because I'm sure I'll learn a lot more about this new Drakoni-Human world Ruby's creating and frankly, I'm ever so curious to find out more. I really want to know what happens to Sasha and if Amy ever grows a spine, or always had one that never had the opportunity to grow.

Shockingly Rubbish!

I really wanted to like this book as I have been struggling to find a really good PNR book to listen to for a while after listening/reading Nalini Singh and Ilona Andrews and after reading reviews I thought here is a good one...how wrong was I!!! The heroine is beyond annoying and whiney. Nearly Half of the book the H and H don’t even talk it’s all about hand signs etc and lord when they do manage to talk he sounds like he is some cave man with limited intelligence.

Now I don’t mind any major sexual scenes but lord this was again like a soft porn of “me Tarzan you Jane”

Couldn’t finish the book - a wasted credit so don’t waste your credit or money!

A Hot Time

This was well worth the try, I wanted something different just for a change and I'm glad I did. A story about the apocalypse with a different twist with creatures of old being thrown back into this world and changing the place forever .
I found it well read with great voices characterizing the people . It's not a story for the under shed or little imagination , otherwise I think that the stories depth could be missed .

Great

What a joy to have a longer book from Ruby, than the IPB series which I thoroughly loved too. I really enjoyed my first foray into dragon shifters. Totally yummy. Very well narrated.

a great shifter romance

As shifter Romances go, this is a great one.
Good solid HEA Plot
Engaging likable Characters.
Lovely world building that I'm eager to learn more about in the following books.
Well Written and Well Narrated.
on the spicy side... but really the cover pretty much shows you that from the get go.
10 books in this series and this is a good solid start. I'm diving right into the next!

The narrators are a good combination

The narrators are a good choice for the book.

The story is easy going and sometimes repetitive.

Overall for a first book in the series, it’s good enough to continue it.
