When forced to choose between safety with the dragon organization Talon and being hunted forever as an outcast, Ember Hill chose to stand with Riley and his band of rogue dragons rather than become an assassin for Talon. She's lost any contact with her twin brother, Dante, a Talon devotee, as well as Garret, the former-enemy soldier who challenged her beliefs about her human side. As Ember and Riley hide and regroup to fight another day, Garret journeys alone to the United Kingdom, birthplace of the ancient and secret Order of St. George, to spy on his former brothers and uncover deadly and shocking secrets that will shake the foundations of dragons and dragon-slayers alike, placing them all in imminent danger as Talon's new order rises.My thoughts:
I enjoyed the last book in this series on audiobook, so when this one came up for review I jumped at the chance. I enjoyed how all the narrators in this series work. Each narrator takes a chapter and a character. When it is that character's POV, the corresponding narrator takes over that chapter. It really helps for those that normally have problems with multi-POV but I've not had a problem with that aspect of the series even when I read it.
Each narrator is excellent for their characters. While it might throw you a bit when voicing the other characters, it isn't enough to draw you out of the story and they are actually pretty consistent in inflection of the voiced characters. Mostly it was the male narrators voicing the female character and vice versa where you really noticed the difference. This is often the case in any audiobook you will encounter, however and was a minor niggle overall.
The story really seems to pick up speed from the last book and I though it wrapped up some of the events that was building from the last book. I wasn't sure how the triangle would play out, but it wasn't bad and while things wasn't quite worked out, it didn't bother me as well. Revelations made that triangle more twisty which actually made it more interesting. So those that don't like triangles be wary but don't shy from the series either.
As far as the rest of the book... oh twists galore... and one very wicked twist in the end. However, having read this author's other works, I trust that things will work out in a interesting manner and one that I will accept. Right now I'm still reeling with the last twist in this book. Sorry, all I will say.
I give this audio 4 stars. I really like the way the multi-POV is done on this audio and I so need that next book now. Need to know what happens next. NEEDS I tell ya. LOL
