Sharing a Backpack with a Dragon

After a lot of the hints of what was to come from the first book, this edition ignores almost all of them and instead follows char as she goes on a journey of self discovery. Neill's presence feels like an afterthought at best, at one point literally being left behind in a tree while char and her dragon continue the story.. I couldn't quite shake the distraction. All in all though, a good story fantastically narrated.

There's an odd pace in this book that was often jarring, as it seems to pendulum between action and downtime, the latter though is sometimes extremely dry and I needed to skip ahead (I'm looking at you what I'm assuming is an accurate account of weapon making). All in all there's an interesting if not drawn out story here that is narrated well but that definitely ends far too soon.. strangely enough. Here's hoping that another edition is on the horizon, as I just noticed that this one is from just about 4 years ago as of this review. Fingers crossed we get to see what happens next soon.

This one is a great example of not paying attention to the cover, I had envisioned something wholly different than what awaited within. The narration from Jeff is spectacular as always and while the story takes some odd side alleys at times, I found the story engaging throughout as our main character comes to grips with a horrific past and faces the question.. can he really be a hero?

While this series borrows from myth and legend, it spins an intriguing yarn with engaging characters that feel real in a world that had my attention caught from beginning to end. Amazing narration from Tess. Highly Recommended.

I don't think I have laughed or cried more in all the books I have listened to or read, an amazing trilogy that I have listened to multiple times from beginning to end and the narration is exquisite.

A great story and intriguing world awaits in this debut book and it honestly had me from beginning to end. Love that it doesn't get bogged down in constant stat rundowns and descriptions, that's definitely a pet peeve of mine in the genre. Cannot wait to see where this adventure leads next.
