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.
