Publisher's Summary

When the dragon Jaax receives word that a human infant has been found in the province of Oescienne, he doesn't dare believe it. Humans have been extinct for centuries, trapped by a terrible curse and left to live out their existence in the form of dragons. Despite his doubts, however, Jaax assumes responsibility for the baby girl, only to discover that what he has been seeking for so many years has finally been found...
Jahrra knows all about the legends and sagas of Oescienne, but never in her wildest dreams would she believe that she played a part in one of them. She's far too busy dodging the bullies at school and seeking out new adventures with her friends to worry about what secrets her dragon mentor might be keeping from her, or that her every move is being watched by something living in the forest surrounding her home.
But the secrets run deep, and as Jahrra fights to earn her place in this extraordinary world, she will begin to unravel the truth of it all: that she isn't as safe as she thought she was, that danger lurks around every corner, and that her role in this unfurling tale is far more significant than she could possibly imagine.

Very nice

I may be in the minority here but I love slow books that tell us about the protagonist's childhood. It makes me become more attached to the characters. However, this book seemed a bit TOO slow. Although that won't stop me from listening to the next book.

The premise is very interesting and I'm a sucker for "chosen one" tropes.

If you have the time and patience to sit through 12 hours of an epic tale that is just beginning, this is for you.

Fantastic Narration!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Finding?

There was a moment where a music queue (ps how cool is it to have music in an audiobook??) really set the tension as a mysterious character appeared.

What about Michael Ferraiuolo’s performance did you like?

Simply put, everything. The voices, the pacing, the emotion, the humor, all of it! I find that most male narrators have a hard time voicing female characters but Michael's voices seem natural and suitable to each character. I'd have to say I like Hroombra the best. This is the first book I've listened to Michael narrate but it surely won't be the last. He elevates the material and creates a work of performance art.

Any additional comments?

While the pacing and overall story seemed to move slowly, The Finding is a fine first entry into a new fantasy world. I would say the narration and music really set this audiobook apart and elevate the material to another level.
