A prophecy of murder.
An elf hunted by dragons.
One man who risks everything to save her.
Nachal is a human that should not be having prophetic Dragon Dreams. But he does. Every night he dreams of an elf running through flames, trying in vain to outrun the Rebel Dragon Obsidian. Every night he sees her fall. Sees her eyes close. Feels her heart as it slows, and then stops. Every night, through the connection of the dream, he dies with her. It's a spiral that he can't control, and it's slowly driving him insane.
Auri is an elf raised by a powerful human king not of her own blood. Left behind by the mother who perished far from the elven isle El'dell, she seeks to forge her life among the humans. Her journey takes her to the land of her heritage. To a place that holds both a haunting betrayal, and a miracle that just might save her life.
Together, they become embroiled in a conspiracy where destinies are intertwined, love is born in the fallout of ultimate sacrifice, and the only path to victory lies through the searing flames of dragon fire.

Okay, so this book itself was pretty good. There's a certain scene where they're flying through the water with a dragon, and that scene itself was just 5 stars. I mean, I got so into that scene! The rest of the book was pretty good, too. Very interesting and different from most dragon books I've read, I really enjoyed it. 4 Stars for it.
The narrator wasn't bad, per se. He did good voices, he had a steady pace and told the story well. He just wasn't for me. I can't put my finger on what exactly didn't work for me, but his voice pulled me out of the tale for some strange reason. As I said, he was good, and I don't know why it affected me so much! It just...simply, it just didn't work for me.
Overall I give the Audible of this book 3 Platypires
