There are 2 stories, and both are very good - funny and entertaining and interesting. Human girl is saved by boy, boy happens to be a dragon that usually eats girls. Some explicit sex, a bit of bloody battles, lots of snark. My idea of a good story! The narrator speaks very clearly and consistently. However, that slowly gets distracting. She reads with nonchalance. She is practically unemotional. The tone of voice, while pleasant, doesn't change between angry, irritated, sleepy, happy, worried, or surprised characters. It all comes across as vaguely interested. "Oh look, it's raining" sounds the same as "Oh no, I've been stabbed and I'm dying."
I've listened to the book twice, and have sadly decided that if I want to go further into this series, I'll have to get the paper version. Ms. Jackson narrates the next in series, and I'm just not interested in the ho hum narration. It isn't so bad that I want to return the book. I'm just reminded of the awkward conversations I've had with people who don't smile or laugh at jokes, or seem to notice you asked a question. There are too many other narrators that are better.

I've loved everything that Shelly/G.A. has written, and I'm totally happy that the first few books are finally being put into audio. Thank you my friend for doing this!!
