Publisher's Summary

Searching for her missing brother, Grace Carlyle never dreamed she would discover a secret world populated by mythological monsters - or find herself facing a sword-wielding being whose looks put mortal men to shame. But there he was, Darius en Kragin, one of a race of shape-shifting warriors bound to guard the gates of Atlantis, and kill all travelers who strayed within its borders. Now Grace's life was in his hands, and Darius had to choose between his centuries-old vow and the woman who had slipped beneath his defenses and stolen the heart of Atlantis's fiercest dragon.

Oh my ears!

Now maybe I'm just spoiled because I listened to the Lords of the Underworld series first and Max Bellmore is one of the best narrators I've ever heard, but Heart of theDragon has terrible narration. I only made it through 35 minutes before I couldn't stand to listen to it anymore. The story is pretty good, I picked the book up at the local bookstore later, and I would recommend the story, but read it instead of listening.
The narrattion was very flat and it was difficult to tell the characters apart, they all sounded so similar. The tone of the narrator was bored, sounding as if she couldn't believe she was reading such "drivel".
I recommend the story, but not the audio.

It's more like porn...


I love epic fantasy. I enjoy magic and mystery.
I got this book for that reason. I made it through the first two cd's hoping for a change; but all I'm really hearing is sex, lust, and a lot of references to the human body. Don't get me wrong. My libido is as healthy as any woman's and I'm no prude. But I didn't sign up for the x rated language or lurid details of how the main characters turn each other on when I made the decision to buy this book. It's actually "x" enough that I wouldn't want my grand kids to hear it.

I'm not going to bother with the rest of the book.
I couldn't be more disappointed.
