Publisher's Summary

Kaylae Drayce is convinced she’s crazy. She hears voices in her head and dreams of fiery apocalyptic wars. That’s nothing compared to the terror she feels when the only people she loves are taken from her and she’s forced to run for her life all the way to Nocturne Falls. The town promises her one of two things: answers to her madness or a one-way ticket to an asylum.

Zareh Lutherone is shattered to discover the Firestorm dragons’ ancient enemy has found and murdered his Keeper. He is plotting his next move in preparation for another war when a beautiful stranger literally falls into his arms. He doesn’t know who she is, only that the dragon inside him demands he protect her at all costs. It doesn’t take long to understand why. Faced with a daunting task of convincing Kaylae she isn’t crazy - she is his Keeper and lifemate - just got complicated. Their enemy is hot on their tail and will stop at nothing to get their hands on Kaylae in order to destroy the last of an ancient dragon race.

Quite good.

The lore is only borderline different from the original series. The romance, while not in-depth, can still be considered an actual romance. And the plot has a few turns that kept me interested. I felt left hanging with the lack of closure with the bad guys but then remembered that Nyte has a follow up to this one. Something I'll be following up in the very near future.

A dragon speaks...

I loved the new residents of Nocturne Falls, dragons. A perfect fit with the other supers. B.J.Harrison always does perfect narration, getting each character right. I always know who's taking. This book is a welcome addition to the Universe series. Good writing, good story.

unfinished

I don't understand how you can have a conflict with no resolution and the poisoning of a character without a resolution. this book doesn't seem like it was finished.

Awesome story in the true nature of Nocturne Falls

Would you consider the audio edition of A Dragon Speaks Her Name: A Nocturne Falls Universe Story to be better than the print version?

I love many of the bonus books about Nocturne Falls by various authors but this one so far is my favorite. I know I will be re-reading this on a regular basis. Kira Nyte did an absolutely WONDERFUL job with this story and B J. Harrison brought it to life in his always excellent way with voices, accents, inflections, and emotions.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Dragon Speaks Her Name: A Nocturne Falls Universe Story?

I don't want to put any spoilers in this so that each new reader will have the joy of watching the events unfold in their minds.

Which scene was your favorite?

All of them. Each scene was equally important, mixed with excitement, love, and involvement in the story that included some of the regular 'people' we love so much in Nocturne Falls.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely. I am looking forward to the next time I read it to hear some of the parts I missed the first time around.

Any additional comments?

This book is definitely worth a credit.

super cute

I love it because of how cute the love between the main characters were. I also love that the author is in the same place I am.

really enjoyed this one=)

i especially liked that, although this is a NFU story, and not one of the main storyline, it was so much longer than some of the others in the Universe. it was a lot of fun for me cause I'm partial to anything dragon and dragon related 💚
on a side note~
throughout all the [wonderful, amazing, awesome!!] NF books, [poor (old) ha!] Alice Bishop is made out to be some kind of nightmare scary witch. when, in fact, she is a caring and generously giving, Lady. she IS held in high regard and esteem, and she definitely has the oomph to back up tales told of her, but she's always there for the residents of NF, for Anyone who is in need of her help and expertise. she's always ready to come to the rescue of anyone in danger. i just thought a shout out for Alice was in order;) idk about you, but i kinda 💗 her, and I'd love a book that centers around her =)) one that focuses on Eleanora Ellingham would be good, too=)

Wonderfully written and narrated. Good character and world building.

A Dragon finds his life mate, but must keep them hidden from an old enemy who will not stop looking for dragons to kill. Romance, action, fear and possible triumph keep them moving.

Over the top romance to the detrement of the story

I managed to stick with it for seven chapters before giving up because the overblown concentration of the romance element left me not really caring how the story developed or what happend to the main protagonists.

It's a shame because the setting of the Nocturne Falls books is great, and the level and type of romance content on them is usually of the more low-key and bearable variety (the Miss Frost ones are even better) and it's great that other authors are writing in the Nocturne Falls Universe, but this one... I just couldn't continue to listen.

If you like the sort of book where the romance completely overwhelms the actual story content, then this is probably the book for you. Otherwise, skip it in favour of almost any of the other stories in the series.
