Summary

Ridge, Sardelle, and their comrades may have rescued Tolemek's sister and freed the dragon, but trouble awaits at home.

The king is missing, a secret organization is hunting sorcerers, and the capital is more vulnerable than ever to enemy attack. Worst of all, at least from Ridge's point of view, someone put that jackass Colonel Therrik in charge of the flier battalion.

Ridge and his allies have a lot of problems to fix, but they can't show their faces in the capital without being arrested or shot. This time it's going to take a lot more than magic to save the country.

Performance ruins it.

Can’t for the life of me understand why this performance / reading got the go ahead. There’s almost no acknowledgement of punctuation with pauses and emphasis seemingly random. I’m still not convinced it isn’t a computer generated voice. Anyway - read the book if the subject is your thing - I bought the books for my mum as I enjoyed the story and warmed to the characters but the experience was utterly spoiled by the narrator.

love it

not what I usually read but it's got a taste of everything that makes a fantasy story , listened to the first five books back to back, makes me wish I'd picked up the paperbacks when I saw them in my local bookshop

looking forward to the rest of the books

loved this book building on the characters in the previous books, though you can easily miss the appearance of the dragon the swords were great.

Jaxi needs love

This is a good series so far but I hope Jaxi gets more appreciated because she is the best character in the series. She reminds me of Saphira from Eragon and I love her personality.

The Story Continues

Once again this book is filled with drama, adventure, humour and the characters I have come to know so well. Another step in their journey and I can't wait to see what happens next - already downloaded the next one!

love!

I absolutely love this series and am very sad the next 4 are not on audible! the 2 novellas 5.5 and 7.5, and the novels 6 and 7. The narrator is by far my favorite narrator. She does such an amazing job bringing the books to life!

Who has Dragon Blood?

Book 5 in the Dragon Blood series was the best so far. I have become vested in the characters after so many adventures, and I am still interested in following them. That is a good sign that the story is intriguing. Buroker has developed a world where there used to be magic, sorcery, and dragons; yet, most people don't believe in magic at all. Creating a strong, charming and apparently gorgeous (but not conceited at all) who was open-minded with a strong sense of fairness was a good way to introduce a beautiful sorceress into the story. Each novel introduces new characters while building on the previous ones, all while there are mysteries everywhere.

Caitlin Davis does a fantastic job narrating the story and her ability to create excellent voices for all of the characters - and there are many - both male and female. It is easy to decipher who is speaking and her choices enhance the experience of the story. I'm pretty picky with my credits, and I have used them on these. That means I would recommend this series, and this book is the best so far.

Floating City

This was another great book in the series. I was hoping a little bit more of the title to do justice to the book, but it didn't pan out how I thought. With the addition of another soulblade, even though it didn't seem sentient, I kind of hoped it would be, even if a little bit, and it would have had some memories, since it seemed older than the original soulblade full of snark that we know, but it didn't. I was a little disappointed there, but this book was fantastic. I loved the characters, the tension, and the plot. Another great book to the series.

ONE battle down

I am enjoying the DragonBlood series as a whole. This book seemed to have less content and moved much slower than the previous ones. I was also expecting to hear more about Tylee and the dragon, but didn't. On the plus side The battles were exciting and the light humor filled every page. We have been introduced to a new sorceress and sword, gotten rid of a few minor antagonists and learned more about our real enemy. I am looking forward to see how all the loose ends wind into the next book. I am enjoy Caitlin Davies various voices that make the story live.

This fifth book in the Dragon Blood series miss awesome!

This fifth book in the Dragon Blood series is awesome! The cast of characters are so interesting and the settings are beautifully described. Lindsay Buroker is a master story teller! Caitlin Davies performance and narration are outstanding. She really knows how to bring the characters to life. Now on to Audible to purchase the rest of the series.
