Publisher's Summary

Fire Dragons once again walk the world.... 

Dragons....

Mechanoid armies....

Daring stealth mission....

Dragon vs ship combat.... 

Jared and his dragon companion Scarlet return from their quest to find the rest of the fire dragons triumphant, but will it be enough to throw off the chains of captivity binding mankind to a dismal existence?  

The rulers in the floating cities tighten the noose around Jared's neck as dissent brews among the waterfolk, putting everyone he loves and protects in danger. While ships from above pursue the group with powerful plasma weapons, the fire dragons agree to bond with the waterfolk, allowing them to develop special abilities and grow their strength.  

Even with superhuman bodies and the increased power of bonded fire dragons, Jared and Scarlet come to a critical realization; they will never stand against the cities alone. Building alliances sends them to the far corners of the world on a quest for vengeance and justice.

Great book

I received a code from the author. I really enjoyed this one. It had a good flow and great Narrators! I enjoy listening to anything that has Anneliese Rennie in it. She and Armen Taylor could narrate the US tax code and make it enjoyable.

Honestly, I’m getting bored.

The author just keeps using the same story arc over and over. They find a place, their driven from it, then they find a new one, then their driven from m that one.
Theirs all these ‘Lucky’ breaks wear they find or get life’s if weapons and gear only to loos it in the second half. Nothing they find is ever put to real use, it’s just taken away or destroyed, creating an endless cycle of ‘search-find-hide-lose-search’

Author completely ignores writers rule 1: chekhov's gun.

However the Narrators do an amazing job, even if one sounds phoned in, literally, it sounds duper compressed. But it doesn’t really contract from the performance.

Worth continuing the series but not my favourite

The overall concept and story arc is interesting. But I found some elements frustrating.






Vanessa gave lectures about leadership while ignoring dissent and failing to address issues within the group. Scarlet expects Jared to deal with issues and alliances with humans but also with dragons. When the people that she has agreed to defend are under attack, she takes a neutral stance. Forgiveness is one thing but it doesn't make sense to ignore the disregard of human life or trust that dragons will keep each other in line when they have failed to do that in the past.

Excellent Edge of Your Seat Apocalyptic Story

Radioactive Revolution is a unique crusade of one man’s drive to defeat the cruel and oppressive cities in this dystopian post-apocalyptic story. Richard Hummel, the author, delivers a powerful and vividly detailed story that lays emotions out for everyone to feel but also allows the listener to be “in” the story.

Jared is a man with a special bond to a fire dragon. Jared is seeking revenge against those who killed his mother and who keeps his people oppressed. Jared moves to build an army but to do so he must bond his people to other dragons or creatures in order to take on the cities and their rulers. With each section of the book, the listener is given an inside view of what Jared and Scarlet (his dragon) are talking about as telepathy is a common communication tool. This tool makes the dialog more tangible and moves the story along much smoother.

While I thoroughly enjoyed the entire book, the one piece that stands out as the deadliest and most relatable experience centers on the spiders and Jared’s reaction to them. The emotion, fear, and caution that Hummel describes are very realistic and whole. It gave me chills!

Throughout the book, Hummel keeps the listener guessing. When one is expecting a certain outcome and it’s almost delivered Hummel throws in a sudden twist that leaves the listener wide-eyed and on the edge of his/her chair.

The development of the story moves gracefully and smoothly from beginning to end with a cliff hanger that guarantees the listener will be back. Each character is developed fully throughout the story, giving us bits and pieces creating a connection to most of the characters. I look forward to hearing more about the griffin in the next book in the series. This character was introduced with just enough to keep us intrigued but not enough for us to know him or how he will grow. Hummel was very deliberate in his character development and it shows.

The narrators, Armen Taylor and Anneliese Rennie were excellent! They are talented voice actors that helped to bring the characters to life through their rich tones and delivery. Armen’s Jared was strong and sure even when he doubted his plans. Anneliese performed Scarlet and other female leads with strength and the proper aloofness that one would expect from a dragon. They both took the book to the next level that only good strong narrators can. I hope to hear more of their work.
This is a book that I loved! I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more. Although I did not read the first book in the series, I was able to pick up the gist of what happened in book one.
I highly recommend this book!

Bonding, nanite exploration, encounters with the cities, other colonies and more. And the ending? Who doggie what a cliff hangar. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

science fiction Harlequin romance novel

The premise of the book is not that bad. standard science-fiction fantasy type book. however the romances is more then I I am typically used to. At times it focuses heavily on their feelings about each other.. that's not something I looked for any type of books. It's just not for me.

the female voice sounds like she's talking through a walkie-talkie.The female voices sound very much alike. However, maybe I just hear it more in the female voice, for the male voice just typically does the main character.

I did not finish this book and will likely ask for my credit back.

Looking forward to the next one

I really enjoy this series and am looking forward to the next one. My only con is that Annalise sounds a little robotic I noticed it in the first book and it would be a nice effect for them speaking in their minds but it seems like it is for all the female cast. Maybe the rig she is using? Otherwise great book

Great storytelling

An excellent follow up and i love how Hummel has written this as the surprises and twists keep you guessing till the end.
Narration by Armen and Anneliese may be even better than what i thought for the first audio.
My only problem is this goes far too quick and how long i shall have to wait until the next in the series is released.
