Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, there was a stunningly gorgeous mage named Nikki.

They were trapped by evil, horrible Jaeggi mages for 10 long years until they were rescued by the brave dragon named Gunter. The grumpy red knight swept in, carrying them off to a fair castle, where they lived happily ever after. That’s how the story’s supposed to go, anyway. Nikki would really like to have that fairytale ending, please and thank you.

It’s too bad Gunter is oblivious and the Jaeggi are interfering. Nikki may just have to cook up some explosions to help both situations along, because they’re determined to get their happily ever after.

Is there a magic how-to guide on things that go boom?

A satisfactory conclusion.

I think this book would have benefited from being the short that is book 3 of this serise. While it didn't really drag, there was a lot of just dancing around each other. I loved Nicky but would have loved more time spent on their magic development than waffling on about how they lament that Gunter hasn't 'made a move'.
A sound conclusion to the serise all things considered and I hope there is a follow up to the opening left for a spin off with the ice dragon clan.

An exciting, loving and fun book

The conclusion to this series is exciting and gripping - brought to life by Joel Leslie's brilliant narration.
The characters are unique and balance each other really well and the storyline comes to it's epic conclusion with plenty of nail biting moments. A very exciting, loving and fun read.

Good ending to the series

What a good ending to this series. Loved having an NB main character. Another very good performance by Joel Leslie. Would have liked a few more explosives for the big finale but all in all couldn’t have asked for more. And the prologue…pure joy.

The grumpy Librarian……..

Who knew Gunter was sooo 🔥? After Nikki was rescued/ help save Ravi they latched on to RDF (resting dragon face) himself. Poor Gunter was befuddled but after having a drunken heart to heart with Alric, one of the funniest scenes, he gets it and Finally the demented Jaeggi go 💥. Great fun and As always Joel Leslie does a great job.

Love!

I absolutely love this series and how the narrator takes on every character with so much enthusiasm. Nikki and Gunter were really cute and sweet with Nikki wanting to blow everything up and Gunter just wanting to protect him. Definitely a recommended book!

Farewell My Magical Friends

All good things must come to an end. I have enjoyed my visits to Burkhart Castle and witnessing the progression of these people I've become so fond of. As I wave goodbye one last time I can't help but harken back to a moment when I was standing at Platform 9 and 3/4 waving to the Next Generation as they set off into a new world. May their lives be filled with hope, wonder and love.

Sad Its finally done

I loved this book series!! Everything was well above the standard. Any complaints I have are minor compared to most books in this genre, and this series got me through a long drive. Joel fit this series very well, and each couple was very well written!

it has some minor world building holes that dont bother me, and occassionally skips things I would love to have heard more about. like Alric healing, or a lot of scenes between the grandmother and the ice dragon's king. essentially the character building is so good I want more of it!

Wasted a Credit

I’m one who will listen to a new narrator and give their voice a chance even though their cadence of reading is different. However, this book was difficult to listen to. The Netherland accent, Russian sounding German accents and referring to someone as they in third person was so confusing. . I never understood if characters where male or female. Gay or not gay. Not that I care. The story line was slow and characters boring. This was a waste of listening time and my credit. I hate stopping a book but I couldn’t listen another moment.

This Series was exceptional!

Very entertaining & interesting story line. Each book had different plot twists & kept my attention throughout the reading. The narrator was very good too. Liked his comedic timing & voices. Liked the first 4 Books so much that I pre-ordered the 5th book because I could not wait to hear the rest of the story. I definitely was not disappointed.
