Publisher's Summary

Dragons are real.

A draconic apocalypse is poised to strike at humanity.

Just one wyrm stands in the way...

As a young dragon living by the ideals of virtue and honor, Dauria wanted nothing more than to live in peace and harmony with humanity. When that failed, she helped establish a pact that forced Dragonkind into the shadows.

When she awakens after millennia of slumber, she finds the Earth a very different place than she remembers. To make matters worse, upon exiting her lair she finds herself stripped of all her draconic power and left to freeze, in human form, on the icy heights of her mountain home.

Someone doesn’t want her to rejoin the rest of her kind. Someone sabotaged her from the moment she awakened. Someone wants nothing more than to begin a full-scale war between humans and dragons with the fate of the Earth in the balance.

Somehow, Dauria has to find a way to overcome every obstacle placed in front of her and make her way to the Dragon Council. Who will prevent the coming war if not her?

But how can she do that with no power and not even the strength of her dragon form to aid her?

If you love stories about dragons as deeply flawed and conflicted as any human on the backdrop of rapid, pause-resisting suspense then you'll love Dawn of the Overlords!

Great story told from the dragons' POV

I really enjoyed this title! It is written from the dragons' perspective, which is unusual and extremely cool. Excellent writing!

Perspective and immersive...

I will begin with saying this is not the dragon story you've come to know and read about from other sources.

Before diving deeper, I'd like to say I really enjoyed the performance by Joshua Saxon. I listen to many audio books of the World of Warcraft series and his style is a bit different, but comparable. As one who does not read books in a manner that it is engaging, his performance is exceptional and personally highlights one of the pro's of an audiobook over a book.

That said, this book is more of a story about the dragons. I came into this story expecting them to be tools of war, or perhaps an invading force of sort, but instead they with their points of views, are the focus. I really enjoyed the minimal punch-in's of human events which gave me a sense of time, inclusion, without taking focus away from the main story. The pace is good and kept me during my listen. There is a good amount of story that will keep you engaged to listen to the story through.

My nitpicking of the story is more of a personal matter, that though Dauria was relatable, I wish she was a bit more fleshed out with more background. The only other thing is if you are not fond of long names, it may be a factor that leads the story to drag on... See what I did there? (drag-on)

But if you are a fan of dragons, and are not scared of a different take on them, this would be a good listen for you. At under 5 hours, time flies. I am curious to see the direction of where the series takes us.

Dawn of the Overlord

The narrator was perfect for this type of story. I can see where the story would be great for some but for me it was okay. It was very slow and not a lot of action and I am an action lover. Over all it was okay.
