Nice Dragons Finish Last
Nice Dragons Finish Last | Rachel Aaron
As the smallest dragon in the Heartstriker clan, Julius survives by a simple code: keep quiet, don't cause trouble, and stay out of the way of bigger dragons. But this meek behavior doesn't fly in a family of ambitious magical predators, and his mother, Bethesda the Heartstriker, has finally reached the end of her patience. Now, sealed in human form and banished to the DFZ--a vertical metropolis built on the ruins of Old Detroit--Julius has one month to prove he can be a ruthless dragon or kiss his true shape goodbye forever. But in a city of modern mages and vengeful spirits where dragons are considered monsters to be exterminated, he's going to need some serious help to survive this test. He only hopes humans are more trustworthy than dragons...

This has a 100% approval rating on litsy but I'm boooored. Nothing is happening! I gave it 4 commutes but it just didn't grab me. On to the next!

That was really fun! A fantastic setting, a cool plot, & writing that made me laugh out loud from its wit makes for a charming read. The main characters were harder to grasp — especially Julius, who‘s main MO is to not have a personality in the first place, so you end up paying more attention to the outrageously, flamboyantly deadly side characters instead. Which isn‘t exactly a chore, since their antics had you gasping, laughing or both! ★★★★☆.

This was a fun ride through a unique urban fantasy land. Opal is a Cleaner whose purchase of a housing unit to clean sends her on a chase for riches through the magical DFZ with her new partner Nik. I can‘t wait to read the next book in this series.

If you liked Rachel Aaron‘s Nice Dragons Finish Last (Heartstrikers series), odds are good you will like her new series starter, Minimum Wage Magic (no Litsy listing yet). In future Detroit, where humans, gods, and dragons coexist, Opal Yong-ae is a mage who cleans out the belongings of indebted renters. Indebted herself, she races to cash in on what may be her most lucrative find before a shady corporation grabs it first. A super fun read!

Some fantasy books are not believable, but this world building I approve of!

This was a really fun urban fantasy! I listened to most of it and the narrator was a little annoying, but I also had the ebook for when it got to be too much. I‘d recommend skipping the audio on this one and reading it instead.

Listening to my audiobook while I fold laundry and let the toddler trash the living room I cleaned this morning...

Louise Ah, the myth of Sisyphus! 😉 2y

I‘m not sure how long I‘ve had this audiobook hanging around on my iPad, but it‘s been awhile. I started it tonight while working on my puzzle for a little while. I‘m not really loving the narrator, so chances are good I‘ll end up reading much of it on my kindle (I also have no idea how long I‘ve had the ebook...)

Hopefully next time I can participate in #24in48 but I'm at work for this one unfortunately.

Such a cool urban fantasy/science fiction book! Dragons, mages, dystopian city, weird creatures.. Loved everything about it and mostly how Julius chose to be compassionate even when his ambitious family used him/made fun of him/etc. 💙💛💚💖
