I requested and was granted a code for the Audible version of this book.
I like the characters, and I really enjoy that the dragons and riders have a real feeling relationship, and that they argue and fight rather than getting along all the time. Like family. The description are quite vivid for some of the things, and really made a clear picture. This wasn’t always the case, but in general I enjoyed and could picture the tale that was being presented. She definitely put forth effort!
The wording and writing style felt extremely choppy at first. I couldn’t get into it because it just sounded so odd. It smoothed out a little ways in, but never quite enough for me to be able to get lost in the narrative. I think this was made much more noticeable because it WAS an audible, versus me reading it myself, but I still feel like I would have noticed. I give the book a rating of 3.
Now, the narrator. She just doesn’t match the story, for me. Her tone and emphasis felt all wrong, and I really felt I was being read ‘at’ rather being told a story. Hopefully that makes sense. Her voice is very clear and concise, she has a good tempo, but this story was not the one, I think. I can’t quite figure out what genre she WOULD be good at, but with her voice, I know there’s one that’s perfect for her. 2.5 – 3 Stars.
Overall, this was an okay read. Dragon’s, coming of age, and very interesting relationships between said dragons and their riders.

What didn’t you like about Esther Hardcastle’s performance?
She made this story very hard to get through. Her voice and the tempo is something that drove me nuts. She has a monotone voice and her inflection seems to just be nonexistent. I do not think I can listen to another book from this narrator.
Any additional comments?
I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
This book is about dragons. The story follows Ruskya and other dragon riders. Dragons have been around and plentiful however after a couple of years dragons seem to be going extinct. There are not as many as dragons as there once was. Ruskya is on a mission trying to find out why dragons are disappearing. Come to find out things are not what they seem.
A war is brewing and no one seems to know why certain dragons and riders are attacking innocents. There are so many questions that need to be answered and we do not get them until the end of the story.
This story is a good one and I will continue the series but only via Kindle or Paperback.

The story, the characters, the pace -- everything is perfect There are so many other things left unsaid, only a fraction of the story told in this installment, in spite of its overall complexity. Dragon's Future has the potential to become a worldwide phenomenon with an upcoming movie, but the series has the potential to become a representative of a unique and daring wave of YA literature. This being said, the sequel cannot come fast enough! Esther hardcastle made me cry, laugh,gasp and her narration was utter beauty.Especially at the start of the book .It was tenderly heartbreaking.I have listened to another book that she narrated but it is so wildly different I couldn't believe it. I enjoyed the other one but didn't fully realize her range and how much power she could pour in to the words of this enchanting tale weaving a spell around the listeners .I have never read anything by Kandi J Wyatt before but now I will be actively looking for other books by her.Together author and narrator a total dream team.Bold, imaginative and incredibly thrilling, Dragon's Futuresets the bar up a notch with this vivid portrayal of duty versus free-will. This blend of fantasy with just a touch of dystopian flavor will make the readers devour every word, delighting in a gorgeously written story about freedom, destiny, Magic and so so much more. It's an instant favorite of mine and I hope that if you haven't read it yet, you will pick it up on the first occasion, because Dragon's Future is worth every praise it got. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.As always this is my honest opinion .
