Publisher's Summary

Accepting his dragon-shifting birthright will place a mark on Theo’s head. Can he level fast enough to survive? 

Separated as a child from his family, Theo has always had a feeling that he’s made for something bigger than the suburban life he seems to be headed for. When a bully threatens his best friend, he can’t help but step in the way. The problem is that Theo’s just not much of a fighter. 

Bruised and broken, Theo wakes up to a massive headache and what appears to be floating game text inviting him to become a dragon. While ludicrous, no matter how often he rejects the prompt, it simply returns. Knowing that his life can’t get any worse, he finally accepts...

And that’s when he’s finally exposed to the real world, filled with goblins, orcs, and dragons. 

Having started at such a late point in life, Theo’s at a huge disadvantage starting at Level 1 and in extreme danger. As he soon learns from his squire, a woman who’s followed him in the shadows since birth, dragons are both jealous and territorial. The only way for Theo to survive is to embark on an epic quest to level up and to claim his rightful draconic heritage. 

Drakon Prince is an exciting new LitRPG/GameLit novel from bestseller Jamie Mcfarlane, complete with goblins, dragons, elves, and orcs. The world includes game elements such as skill progression, user and weapon attributes, fortress building, soul shard currency, and much, much more for lovers of all things progression fantasy!

Terrible. Super Cringe.

Let me get this out first. This book is horrible. if I didn't know any better I would have thought the author was a very insecure young man. The book has so many problems.

The worse part is that the characters bring up the problems, but there is never any resolution. Like why are there video game prompts? Theo even says he feels like he's in a video game. The resolution to it? There is none. And then they just ignore it. It makes zero sense.

The book also feels harem-ish. Like Theo maintains his one love interest, but other female characters surround him and completely adore him. Also, this needs to be addressed, Genna is a very poorly designed character. Their relationship is very cringe. It's like the author has never actually been in a relationship and has only read about them from teen dramas. At one point Genna literally tells Theo SHE IS SHALLOW and the only way their relationship works is because he's a big strong dragon now and not a weak little human. Like what the hell. Seriously?

Then on top of that a lot of the book deals with Theo bragging about being a big strong dragon man. Ooooh so strong and tough. No longer weak bus boy, strong dragon. That, btw is another problem. The dragon angle is played up beyond cringe too. The whole book feels like it is written by an insecure young man wanting to play out his dream power fantasy. It's bad.

Then just to make things worse, there is a full character sheet and inventory readout at the end of every chapter. It gets pretty old pretty quick. I'm sure the statblock looks fine on paper, but that often in audio got really annoying.

Great concept

This one starts off good and gets better as it goes on.
Pros: cool concept and a great pace all the way.

Cons: a little more explain the begging would have helped. The ending felt a little rushed.

Overall I would definitely recommend and can't wait for the next one!

Pleasing

I am very pleased with this book. The author didn't turn this book into a teenage wet dream but allowed for good meaningful relationship. the combat was good.

I took one star away because of how many times the stats were gone though. I don't like skipping things but it got pretty repetitive for nothing to change. however if that is my only gripe....great book! :)

Very enjoyable Dragon MC

I came into this with two hopes: that one of my favorite narrators, Peter Berkrot would kill it as usual and two, that the dragon mc would feel like something new. In both cases, these hopes were fulfilled.

I first heard Peter in the Life in Exile audiobooks. I loved his tone and characterizations. His voice creates a nostalgia for epic fantasy so that every time I’d pick up the book I felt immersed in a fantasy adventure. With Drakon Prince he continues that establishment as my favorite voice in fantasy audiobooks. The highlight in this book was in chapter eleven and a scene where the intensity of the mc failing in battle was perfectly voiced to slow and infuse the moment with dread, hope, and then left the scene with me needing to know what would happen next. Awesome writing my Jamie, and that was one of the best moments.

The dragon mc aspect surprised me. I didn’t know what to expect. Would this be a sweeping tale of dragons and nations at war, or something else. Well, it turns out this story is more about a young man discovering his dragon ancestry in a blend from modern world to a fantasy landscape.
In this book, I feel like it is very much the beginning of his journey, but he’s spent the time showing our mc and his growing relationships that I will care what happens next. It’s a bit more slice of life in that way and does establish his powers in battle, but the scope is more focused on smaller areas and skirmishes.

The LitRPG elements are a little on the lighter side, with dragon class choices as the main strategy we see, as well as orbs he loots. If I could request anything it would be more focus on the class and skill development.

The story has more focus on romance than I normally prefer, but it was okay. One review mentioned harem, but this isn’t harem. It’s just one on one M/F romance. It’s fade to black, and serves more to show this young man in a fantasy beyond just being able to eat orcs as a dragon. I thought it was fun. I’ll gladly listen to the next.

Drakon-volution?

Headaches are killing me. Working as a busboy for minimum wage, but I have to pay the rent somehow. The owner of the bar keeps hitting on my friend, Jenna and wants to fire me. As he puts his arm around her waist, he asks me what I am going to do about it. I hit him on the chin, but he does MMA fighting for fun and I am more lean than muscle. He punches me in the stomach and I go down.

He grabs her again and threatens to fire her. I hit him in the back of the head and get lucky, he goes down, but the bouncer grabs me. He threatens to kill me, but Jenna offers to go on a date with him if he doesn’t kill me. I wake up with multiple bruises and a dislocated shoulder while someone is stealing my wallet.

Someone is there to help, she says her name is Val. And for some reason I see a prompt. She tells me to reject the prompt and she will get me to the hospital. I call Jenna’s phone, but the boss answers and he has a camera in the alley watching me. I ask Val (who looks like Velma from Scooby Doo), if I accept the prompt can I help Jenna. She says yes and that she has failed me, because now they will all start coming for me. And so it begins….

Good book

I was reluctant to get this book. I was worried that the main character would be this all-powerful being defeating everyone. However, I was pleasantly surprised that the main character grows strong, but so does all the other characters, and the listener feels invested in the story. I look forward to the next book to see where the writer will take me on this adventure.

Someone please check in on the people around this

On the whole this is held up by the person reading it. I found i was mostly hanging around just to hear more from them, & not having anything else currently out, then the story itself.
Everyone interesting is female & becomes a follower of the main guy, with the only one case of that not being true fading away like they never existed, but then all the females also have personality changes & all become 1 dimensional.
Listen in and puke when they all talk to him like he is baby.
"Ohh my big strong boy." 🤮🤮🤮🤮
Everyone else is a huge a hole alfa male troll bull crud. And as the MC grows strong, you can see how he is one too but an "nice guy."
It really shows off how the writers view the world & I worry for anyone around them.

Different but Good

Throughly enjoyed this ! Bit different but enjoyed it all the same, a few small things are repetitive (like any RPG) but loved the idea behind it !
