It's the Diplomat's decree that all Leaders of the Elder Races have to spend a brief time in other Realms so Pia has to spend time with the Light Fae and she's accompanied by her grumpy but loveable husband Dragos, Lord of the Wyr, who doesn't have, or ever cares to have, 'people skills' because he feels that his Laws are the only Laws that truly count. But he's devoted to his little family unit made up of his lovely wife Pia, his gifted son Liam and the mysterious (recently conceived) 'stink pot'. Dragos is very touchy-feely, is deeply in love (and lust) with Pia and has a healthy and unquenchable sexual appetite for her.... But she's not complaining!! He's true to his Dragon form..... all gruff, growls, smoke and outwardly tough but, underneath his hard exterior, he'd do anything for the woman he loves.
Dragos is not meant to go with Pia but he's not about to be told what to do, when to do it and he also doesn't want to be separated from her so he travels 'under the radar' to be close by. But, while Pia's meeting the Fae Queen and is trying to fit in at the Light Fae Realm, Dragos is left to his own devices which is unfortunate because he gets into a terrifying situation that has frightening and potentially deadly consequences when he's bitten and infected with a magical disease that will destroy him. There's a race against time to find a cure before he turns into a crazed Zombie type of monster but before he looses control secrets get told, secrets are guarded and an old secret of a twin's dark and hateful vendetta could reach global proportions. Because it's not just the Light Fae that's affected..... no, this disease has the potential to spread and destroy the whole of the Elder Races realms because already the Lord of the Wyr Realm has turned dangerous, is chained up, fighting infection and is powerless. But he has a secret weapon..... Pia's blood.
A captivating story, with a wonderful loving close family feel, it has sex, a powerful drool-worthy Hero, a strong magical Heroine who gets caught up in a terrifying race against time and she has to gamble with the life of her husband vs the life of her unborn baby (aka stink pot). This listen packed a lot in and seemed much longer than it actually was.
Worth a credit? Well if anyone can make me use a credit on a short 4.30 hr listen then it's Thea Harrison because the wonderful, weird and quirky paranormal characters that make up the Elder Races are so interesting, likeable, ooze charm and, in all the books, have a fun element to them too. Sophie Eastlake is also an important part of the enjoyment of this series because she is a skilful narrator who always brings the action, the drama and the characters to life and injects just the right emotion that each scene calls for. When I see the words Elder Races or Thea Harrison there's no doubt that I'll be hitting the Add To Cart button without the need to read the Preview.... so creditworthy - Hell yeah.

A fun little zombie romp which is another Dragos/Pia hit. The Elder series is an automatic downloads for me, luckily these came out about the same time there was a 50% sale, so the price was right. Minding his own business shopping for jewels, Dragos comes across a little mystery that he decides to solve. Unfortunately he is attacked by a hoard of light fae zombies that were too fast for him and he was infected. Now the race to find a cure is on. I was dying to know what the "stick pot" will be, my guess was almost right, just had the sex wrong. Same narrator and I have enjoyed her every book.
