Women in 22nd-century sovereign America are expected to be seen and not heard. Caitriona Hayden did not get that memo. As she struggles to make her way in the world after her powerful uncle dies, being "seen" is the least of Cait's problems.
Someone's trying to kill her.
Theo Pendragon claims Cait as his ward and is ordained to guard her and protect her. The dragon finds more than he expects, however, as the flames of passion are ignited within him for the first time. Theo isn't the only one who feels this way about Cait, however. He must learn to fight for what he wants, even if it means risking his closest friendship.
Theo's beloved friend, Dante, a powerful demigod, has spent hundreds of years in pursuit of intellect at the expense of indulging in desire. Everything changes, though, when Cait arouses an undeniable attraction.
But Dante isn't the only one with a vested interest in Cait's future.
An ancient vampire named Corrin rules America and sees love as frivolous and unnecessary. He can't deny, though, that a proper queen would improve his approval among the people. More so, marrying Cait could hold the key to his survival.
Love, desire, and need force Cait into an impossible situation with dire consequences.
Cait's life changes drastically - going from studying for college exams to fighting for a future she never even knew she wanted and for a man she never even imagined she could love. One secret she has yet to uncover is the key to her future.
Fire of Stars and Dragons is the first book in the exciting Stars and Souls trilogy.

Don't you just love men who are dragons?
It seemed odd to have a future world populated with leaders who bound the populace with such medieval attitudes, especially regarding women. The character of the heroine was fairly well developed, and strong-minded and with an evolving personality. Some of the male characters seemed rather vague in spite of their roles in the society or the story. Somehow, it seemed to lack the kind of cohesiveness I was looking for.
The audio performers are each very good at their craft and contributed strongly to the overall enjoyability of this piece. I feel that it would have been even better if their voices had been intertwined throughout rather than in alternating fashion.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, I would. The 3 narrator/character perspective made this very interesting. You didn't have 1 person trying to give full emotion to all of the characters. By Ms. Holloway, Mr. May and Mr. Stillwell each taking a lead character they were able to make them their own.
Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I've listened to a short story read by Mr. Stillwell and felt that this book was just a good. I've not listened to anything by Ms. Holloway or Mr. May but I would like to.
Any additional comments?
Fire of Stars and Dragons is the first in the Stars and Souls series. While this book takes place in the future, the United States is back under the rule of a king and woman are treated like property. Cait is left an orphan, even tho she is over 20, and has to go to court to plead for her independence. The King decides that she cannot have her independence and must marry and gives her 7 days to make a choice. In court she meets Theo, a dragon shifter who is a protector of the king, a sparks fly. Dante,' a demi god and Theo's friend, and King Corrin, a vampire, round out the 3 men who are vying for Cait's attention.
Who will Cait choose?
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes the paranormal genre. There are dragon shifters, vampires and demi-gods to be found here. I would also call this book New Adult. Cait is in her early 20's so not so much a Young Adult by usual standards There is some steamy love scenes to be had also.
