My review title is because I noticed this one several times and passed because I don’t like stories so large in scope and world-import as gods interacting much or warring. But this book actually doesn’t have that so I wanted people with similar tastes to not let the title fool you.
The main character human is a 20 something, not a child, whose career plans didn’t work out. The human who may or may not have formerly been a dragon is interesting and contrasts well with the MC (and others). The bounty hunter is half-orc. There are some other interesting creatures in (and under) the city. The audio sample introduces what causes the overall plot but the rest of the story happens in the different parts of the interesting City of Splendors. It is more like Murder in Halruaa or Murder in Cormyr in tone. But it’s not a murder mystery but of the maybe-former dragon and a potential threat to the city. Along the way the MC deals with what to do now that her first career choice didn’t work out. I liked it and the characters.

Yet another book that could have been wonderful, if only it had been read by another narrator. Why, Oh why, couldn't the fantastic Dina Pearlman have narrated this book, as she has all the other Erin M. Evans books. Ah well, I'll just have to read the printed version, as I simply can't listen to James Patrick Cronin maul it to death anymore.
Really enjoyed the story. It was a lovely coming of age action adventure about a girl raised as a noble, but whose family has a secret.
The narrator was one of the poorest of the Forgotten Realms novels I've listened to. Off pronunciations and emphasis drew me out of the story on many occasions. Most notably, for a story set in Waterdeep, to put an odd heavy stress on "deep" in the word Waterdeep was really distracting.
