Quickies: The Dragon’s Psychic

New Dragon Series!

Great characters and world building. For a first in series book, the balance of new info to story was excellent. There is a lot of action, a little steam, a few laughs, and even a tear or two. The main characters get a HEA/HFN ending as this has an over arcing theme that will carry through for the next two books. This is a trilogy, but I could see room to add more stories after this set is complete. 🤞

This is a shifter story so there is insta-love and mate claiming, but it all just works. There is some violence and memories of violence, as that is part of the heroine’s main gift.

This is my first time with author Linzi Baxter. She has put her own spin on this new shifter series and her characters will pull you in from the start. I’m excited to listen to more. Hopefully the rest of this series will make it to audio soon!

This story is performed in dual POV of the two main characters Talia and Kirin. Heather Costa is new to me but I feel she did a good job, especially being paired with veteran, Jeffrey Kafer. If you listen to a lot of Sci-Fi & Fantasy like I do, Jeffrey should not be be a new narrator to you. As always, he is excellent.

I find that by adjusting the playback speed greatly improves the production. Heather played best at 0.95x and Jeffrey at 0.90x speeds. I ultimately settled for 0.90x as constant adjustments proves taxing.

Quickies: Shifters Forever: Boxed Set


Great Box Set, Hope There Is More!

This is a complete set of stories for the first paranormal series by Elle Thorne. There are many more spin-offs in the same world, but it all started with this one. It is also the first to be in audio. It’s a great value for your credits.

The world building is vivid and believable. The mythology is important as it sets up a little of everything that is and will come to be in the future titles.

There are a few times I wish I could of had just one more chapter or an epilogue with details of something mentioned in the last chapter, but I believe that is by design. It may not be the current series, but it will eventually come full circle.

This was my first experience with this author, but I definitely want more. I have already purchased the next box set.

Meghan Kelly’s performance was solid as always. Book #6 had more males in a conversation than I think she has voices for, but it wasn’t too distracting. Normally her male to female ratio of voices is spot on.

I didn’t notice any issues with the audio production. I listened at 1.00x speed.

My Reviews

Quickies‎: Dovis


Alien Werewolf, Trust Me, It’s Hot!

Don’t let Dovis’s outward appearance turn you away. He has another form, and it’s hot! His “skin” form is actually rare among his people, and comes with “extras”.  😉 This also makes him an outcast on his home planet, and a perfect candidate for this ragtag crew.

I simply adored Mari! She really brought the feels. Like horse in swap feels! (for my fellow 80’s children) I want to wrap her up in hugs and hide her in my pocket. Yes she fared better in slavery than most, but the poor girl doesn’t even know how old she is.

This story starts where the first one left off, as they acquire Mari from the Techie station they stopped at for upgrades in book one. Most of the action takes place on The Vorge.

It’s steamy, and like the others, it carries a “Contains mature themes” warning. So you are warned.

Laurann Dohner is a very creative author.

New Narrator, Summer Roberts also did well with both genders and the various species of aliens.

Overall 👍 and I am excited for the next series which is York’s story!

Quickies‎: Cathian


Action And Steam, With A Whole New Series.

The action was good and the story was steamy. It was a great start to a new Science Fiction Romance series. It’s not listed as an erotic series, but might as well be, given what the stories are mostly about at their core. Each book focuses on one of the crew taking a mate. And they all give a “Contains mature themes” warning.

Cathian’s needs are a bit intense and as he is the only one of his species on board the ship, it makes for a rather unique situation. He is the captain of an ambassador ship that affords him certain privileges, however he runs it with ❤, for his crew is the family he has chosen rather than of blood. There is a lot of smexy times to be had, but it is surrounded by lots of action, witty banter, and cleverness.

So excited to get to listen to Laurann Dohner’s work.

Narration was great. Callie did well with both genders and the various species of aliens.

Overall I am very excited for this new series and can’t wait to binge the rest of it!

I listened through Audible Escape.
