Publisher's Summary

Lina thought surviving her Yellowstone vacation was hairy. She doesn't even have time to enjoy her newly discovered powers with her two hunky dragons before they and Brodey Lyall's wolf pack must band together again to find out who's responsible for grisly dragon murders.
As Lina finds out how deeply their tragic past is entwined with the present, new allies join their quest to hunt down the killer before he can strike again. But the more Lina learns about the past, the more questions she has.
In their transcontinental journey for justice against the vengeful and psychopathic cockatrice, Lina and her ever-expanding adopted clan have to rely not just on her random and unreliable incendiary powers, but on the skills and memory of a sadomasochistic immortal. The future happiness of the Lyall brothers depends on it, as do all their lives.
And she doesn't even have a goddess 101 handbook.
Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.
This book ends on a cliffhanger, and the story continues in the Triple Trouble series.

It is still a well told story

I have to be honest, I felt kind of lost through this, I figured as a prequel I did not need to know what happened before but I was wrong…and I did not realize there were two other prequels/stories prior to this one….that’s what I get for grabbing this one before checking where it is in the series…..simply because I like the author. It is still a well told story, not necessarily a favorite as I’m not sure how much I actually like Lina….to me she came across a bit whiney in the first half or so of the story (or maybe it was just the narrator who I did not care for at all), while Lina’s character did step up to the plate a bit later in the book, for me the damage was done.

So the gist is, we find out how Lina is the human incarnation of the goddess, and she gets to remember all of her past lives so she can be ready for the confrontation with the cockatrice (I'm picturing the one from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets as I was listening to this). With all of the other characters, the Wolves, Baba Yaga and her younger sisters….there is a lot going on and it seems that this book ties in with the Lyall Brothers who we meet in the first Triple Trouble book (after I finished the audio I looked up the series…did not want to look first and end up coming across any spoilers), so now I need to read these in the proper order. Taking my feeling lost out of it, it was a good story.

Veronica Harte is a new to me narrator, while I can’t say I cared for her narration of this audio, I would be willing to try something else maybe in a different genre to see if she is a narrator I would want to continue with. I did not care for the breathy type tone so after about 20 minutes I upped the speed to 1.8x which helped the story immensely for me (it is possible it stopped later in the story but I could not tell at the increased listening speed).

So, writing was good – 4 Stars, story was good – 3½ stars, but the narration – 2½ stars, I’ll be checking to see who the narrator is for the rest of the series before I decide if I am going to listen to it or just read it.

Audiobook was provided for review the narrator.

Action adventure erotica

This is a well thought out, interesting premise for a romantic erotica story - have humor, mystery and intrigue (with some puzzles/clues for the characters to figure out along the way); action and adventure taking place around the world, and paranormal/magic/shapeshifter elements thrown out over many eras/lifetimes for the characters - plus all the different sexual tastes you can think of.

The author, Ms. Dalton does a great job keeping track of her characters, though some tweaking in the writing would have been great (Lina is suppose to only see blue when a vision represents the future). A couple of the bad guys' names were a little confusing to me as to why they were already dead - but I see there are a couple of other stories that are 'prequels' to Fire and Ice, so I guess I'll pick those up in Kindle to see what they were about.

The narrator does a good job with almost all of the accents, especially Scottish - her character voices were distinct enough that I could tell which person was speaking when.

An overall, very entertaining production.
