    Audiobook review. This is narrators by two people (one female and one male) which works really well. This is a pretty long book so plenty is going on. Tierney has only ever had eyes for Jax but he tries to keep her distance. Everyone has their secrets. Some are better hidden than others. A group of supernaturals need to solve a mystery before anyone else goes missing. Jax has his own secrets but it’s becoming harder to resist Tierney. This is a slow burn romance with a twisted of gritty adventure Audiobook review. This is narrators by two people (one female and one male) which works really well.

A group of supernaturals need to solve a mystery before anyone else goes missing. Jax has his own secrets but it’s becoming harder to resist Tierney. This is a slow burn romance with a twisted of gritty adventure. Imagine seeing someone close to death and not being able to do anything. The group have different gifts and need to work together to solve the evil. There are quite a few characters in this story. Tierney and Jax are our two points of views. Sammy, Jax’s brother is Tierney best friend. When her dad disappears they need to work out who is behind the attacks. The gritty adventure is the main focus of this book. The romance is secondary to the plot. The characters grew up together and we know the characters like each other but secrets keep them apart. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    For the most part I enjoyed this book. There was a lot of information given in large chunks that kinda slowed the pace a bit for me and I did skip bits. The amount of characters and what and who they were was also a little hard to keep on top of. I was rooting for most of the characters though and thought some of them well written, Soroyan was my favourite, but I like the dark broody type. I would like to continue the series out of curiosity to see what happens to the characters but it perhaps wo For the most part I enjoyed this book.

    It took me a long time to sit down and write something about this book. The reason? I really wanted to like it. But ... I didn't. I know, it's my fault - I sometimes choose books because of a cover, and this one was gorgeous. (I've found a few really amazing reads that way, but not this time.) So ... I saw the cover, and got excited. I read the blurb, found out it was about dragons, and my excitement grew! I couldn't not read it. I mean dragons! Who doesn't like dragons!!!

I know, it's my fault - I sometimes choose books because of a cover, and this one was gorgeous. (I've found a few really amazing reads that way, but not this time.) So ... I saw the cover, and got excited. I read the blurb, found out it was about dragons, and my excitement grew! I couldn't not read it. I mean dragons! Who doesn't like dragons!!! (And there aren't that many books about them, at least I haven't found them. So if anyone has suggestions, I'll be eternally grateful.) Dracones Awakening was interesting at first, but as I kept reading, it kept irritating me. Small details at first, but the devil IS in the details as they say. The hero who was introduced as a tortured hero kept going on an on how he loves the heroine, but is not good enough for her, and at one point I just couldn't take it. Enough was enough. It felt like there was no real conflict apart from the one they came up themselves (because they needed conflict). Some scenes didn't make sense - like the one where Jax was being seduced to separate him and Tierney. Why was this done? What purpose did it serve? And then, there were other messes, like grammar errors (though I'm not the one to take stars for that, unless the situation is really awful); the repetition in places that didn't need them. I got so irritated at times that I stopped reading multiple times. I'll give an example of a situation that caused me nothing my eye-rolls: Kyrian approaches Tierney and says that he HAS to talk to her and that's important. (one of his people was kidnapped - so it is important) My response: Talk! But no! he waits for a day or so to do that. When he finally explains the situation everything just ends. Few days later Kyrian comes to Tierney again, this time Jax and his brother is present too, and they have basically the same conversation about the kidnaping and him asking for help and saying how urgant it all it. If it's so urgent why did you wait so many days? I ask them. But instead, I have to read, again, through the same conversation when they are filling details to Jax. Grrr.... First of all, I hate repetition, I think it all could have been summed up in a few sentences the second time, and second, say one thing but act differently (he's very worried, he needs help, yet he waits for days) - it's not really believable, and it puts me on edge. And not on the edge where I cant wait to read more/ to see where this is going. So, I'm giving 2 stars, and one of them is definitely for the cover!

They all work as private I's helping to locate missing people and other private I work. She Jax and Sami have been friends since she was 5 years old. This character is compassionate to the extreme and because she wears her heart on her sleeve, she endures so much at the hands of the Ilyium and now her father is missing. She has loved Jax since childhood and hopes that he will realize that she is his soulmate. She has been Jax's Sanctuary long before he returned to them after being taken away by Marcius. Jax is a protector, and has suffered deeply because of it. He struggles with himself and the self-hate and doubt that clog his vision, skewing his perception of himself. He is definitely the Brooding reluctant love of Tierney's life. He has survived impossible odds, defended his brother Sami, and tried to keep himself intact for so long letting anyone else in seams abhorrent to him. He sees himself as unworthy unlovable and unclean. and with reason his baggage appears insurmountable. It's Tierney's job to show him that her love for him is limitless, that she has always and will always be there for him, that because he has had an awful past does not mean that he cannot be loved or that he is incapable of showing love. She needs him to see how genuine her love is and that together they can withstand anything, he needs to realize that with her help, together they can overcome his past and he can begin to heal. But before that can happen the family has trials and tribulations that wreak havoc on their lives. Sami believes he is dreaming of his soulmate and she needs rescuing, Zander is missing and they need to find him before his is broken and lost to them. Toren is a missing wolf that they have been asked to find, his uncle Soroyan can help with the search but will it be help or hindering them. Kyrain king of the Okimi and Torens father is a fount of knowledge and helps in unexpected ways. Thaniel is a helpless stray Jax and Tierney take in but there is strength in him, he just has to realize it. Genna/ Devil girl and Caden are also strays taken in but something makes Tierney uneasy about them and you’re just going to have read the book to find out why. This book was full of action, passion, and heartbreak, some of the contents is not for the faint of heart and is Graphic. Would I recommend it absolutely!

I was down with the dragon shifters but the fact that they were actually aliens who had escaped to Earth.  Even better was the fact that their alien nemesis' were on earth searching them out in an attempt to destroy them.  It gave the story a little-added twist.  But what kept me turning the pages on this one was our hero Jax. Jax and his brother were raised with Tierney by her father after they escaped to earth.  Childhood friends, Jax and Tierney were always together, but when Jax was forced from Tierney's home to that of his father he came back to Tierney years later changed.  He knew he had feelings for Tierney (and vice versa) but he didn't think he was good enough for her...even if he knew that she was his soul mate. Jax was the perfect angsty, tortured hero.  I loved him when he was pushing Tierney away because I knew how much it hurt him.  You knew who and what he wanted but he had a lot of emotional issues he needed to fight through in order to realize he could have what he wanted. If you're a lover of paranormal shifter romances, DRACONES AWAKENING is one you want to check out.  For this reader, who doesn't normally go for this kind of story, I was left intrigued and want to see what happens next..especially with the alliance with the wolves.

Then you have the mysterious and very powerful Okami Wolves, they are the original wolves cousins, but neither shifter, nor were. They all live in constant hiding for hundreds of years from a dark evil bent on destroying all paranormal. Brothers Jax & Sami and their adoptive sister Tierney have been together forever, only Tierney and Jax have been in love since childhood, but Jax bears scars both mental and physical of abuse at the hands of the man that was supposed care for him and protect him. He does not deem himself worthy of Tierney's love, his father has told him all his life how worthless and dirty he is. Tierney can't understand why Jax keeps pushing away from her, she knows he feels something for her, she has seen it in his eyes. Now they must all search for her father Zander (Fallen Angel) who has disappeared and now they have the help of ones they never knew existed the Okami Wolves. There are so many other paranormals in this book, like witches, night walkers and the list goes on. This new series is so suspenseful, that I could not put it down. I read it all the way to the end and this was not a short story by any means. I so look forward to reading the next book in this wonderful series. And the passion although not much, is so hot, you will really need a water hose. And I love the vivid description of the Dracones, I can almost see them, it is that vivid.... Bravo to this new author, great first book!

But, I pushed on because I wanted to know where the author was going to end up. I understand the need/want of wanting to be unique with names, especially if they're from another world, but I felt there was an over abundance of them. Especially if there is no way of knowing how to pronounce them. What disappointed me the most? Not sure if this is going to spoil it for most, but, there was no "appearance" so to speak, of a dragon until close to the end of the book. Let's just say I was hoping for more. Keep in mind, since I didn't find this book to be my cup of tea, doesn't mean it will be the same for you. I will, however, continue the series to see where the author goes.

    This book was one whole heap of awesome. I admit, when I first looked I was a little like 'uh... dragon-people? Werewolves?

Yes, there are Wolves and Werewolves, but not, ultimately, like the stereotypical fluffies we see a lot of in other fantasy books. There are some truly dark bits of this story - which I absolutely loved, because it adds to the 'realism' (if such a thing exists in fantasy) - and there are some lovely moments too. A really enjoyable, meaty read to get your teeth into. Don't feed it to the wolves!

    I was grabbed by this book from the beginning. The middle offered a few slow spots for me but I did enjoy the book as a whole. I won the audio version and I liked that it had male and female narrators. However, the female narrator should be coached on when to have your voice dripping with sex appeal and when to turn it off. Scenes like running through the woods or driving down the road do not need to be oozing sex. I found that to be irritating, especially since it's not written that way.

Even the the two main characters have a set up for a twist of fate that the author could use in future books.

    Intriguing story with fascinating characters, dragons, wolves, and evil doers. There are aliens among us. Dracones, a human-like species who after reaching their Awakening can transform at will into dragons. Tierney is one (although her father is a Fallen Angel), as are her two best friends, Jax and Sami. Together, they all work as investigators helping to locate missing people. Life hasn’t been easy for any of them and they fear every day being tracked and found by their enemies, the Ilyium—the Intriguing story with fascinating characters, dragons, wolves, and evil doers. There are aliens among us. Dracones, a human-like species who after reaching their Awakening can transform at will into dragons. Tierney is one (although her father is a Fallen Angel), as are her two best friends, Jax and Sami. Together, they all work as investigators helping to locate missing people. Life hasn’t been easy for any of them and they fear every day being tracked and found by their enemies, the Ilyium—the reason they escaped their home planet and came to Earth. Tierney has been in love with Jax for as long as she can remember. She’s been his rock of support through nightmares born of the past and now, with his Awakening coming up fast, she plans to be there for him again, if he will allow her. She knows she is his soulmate but Jax is rather stubborn about it. Jax feels he must be everyone’s protector and by keeping himself away from Tierney, physically and emotionally, he is protecting her. Filled with self-hate, doubt about whether he is worthy of a soulmate as wonderful as Tierney, and unable to shake the torture his father heaped upon him as a youth, he pushes her away until he can resist no more—especially when his dragon won’t allow it anymore. Then with all that's happening, Tierney's father, Zander has gone missing too. DRACONES: AWAKENING by Sheri-Lynn Marean is Tierney and Jax’s story – a story about how limitless love can help heal the scars and nightmares of the past. One of the problems that I had with reading this was I kept getting distracted by everyone else’s stories as they were pulled into Tierney and Jax’s. I would like to have seen more concentration on their relationship and the Awakening of Jax’s dragon with Tierney, knowing hers would be coming soon too. There’s fear of the Ilyium, fear of Marcius (Jax and Sami’s father), fear of betrayal by the wolves and other species, and fear of the Awakening. That’s a lot of fear to encounter in one book. Sheri-Lynn has conjured a mysterious and exotic adventure with the Dracones at the center. We meet many characters besides the immediate family but with so much happening all at once, I felt the relationship between Tierney and Jax got overshadowed. There’s always time to tell the other stories in greater detail in their own books. I do want to know more about the wolves, the other characters, Thaniel, Genna, and Caden, even their enemies. I want Sami to find his dream girl, and the wolves to find Toren but preferably, not all at once. DRACONES: AWAKENING by Sheri-Lynn Marean is action-packed, mysterious, heart wrenching at times and when treated to the love between Tierney and Jax, passionate. There’s great imagination behind the Dracones, the Ilyium, and the growing cast of characters inhabiting the Dracones series. I’m still interested and very intrigued. ***eCopy provided by author in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I can guarantee it won’t be the last! I’m a huge fan of paranormal romance and love all of the creatures in these stories and this one was full of some of the most amazing ones I’ve read about in a while! Tierney is part of an ancient race of supernatural beings called the Dracones who are immortal and live as humans until they go through what is called the awakening when they reach their early twenties. This is when their dragon side emerges and creates noticeable changes in their appearance and enhances their strength and supernatural powers as well. Tierney is originally from another realm and was forced to come to Earth after a brutal slaughter by their enemies many years ago. Tierney is now left alone with two of the brothers she escaped with, Jax and Sami since her father has disappeared and nobody knows where he is or if he’s even still alive. Tierney is falling apart with worry and devastated over the fact that while she is sure that Jax is her soulmate and the man she is meant to be with, he is fighting being with her with every fiber of his being and she just doesn’t understand why. I loved every single thing about this story and didn’t ever want it to end. Reading about the struggle between Jax and Tierney was heartbreaking to witness, especially once I learned exactly why Jax was struggling so hard against being with Tierney. The things he has been through should never happen to any child, ever and I wanted nothing more than for Tierney to be able to help him to heal from these horrible things and see himself as the worthy male that he is. I loved these two together since I feel that they are a perfect fit for each other and loved how they were each able to provide strength when the other needed it the most. The awakening process is brutal and definitely not something I’d ever want to experience personally, well except for if I was going to be a Dracone. Then I’d consider it a necessary evil and totally worth it. I totally hated the Dracone’s enemy the Ilyium and the methods this group utilize to come after the Dracone are sick and twisted to say the least. This is an amazing paranormal story full of everything a fan of the paranormal could ever want and I loved reading this! I am a huge new fan of this author and I will definitely be looking forward to reading more from her in the future! I highly recommend reading this book to anyone.

    "Dracones Awakening" is a dark, steamy mixture of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. In it we meet the Dracones, a race of dragon-human hybrid creatures originally from Tartaria, but now on Earth after being hunted by another race of supernatural creatures. There are also were-creatures of various sorts, and even more races of supernatural, otherworldly creatures are introduced towards the end. The mythology behind the supernatural history and races in the story is unusual, especially for the "Dracones Awakening" is a dark, steamy mixture of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. In it we meet the Dracones, a race of dragon-human hybrid creatures originally from Tartaria, but now on Earth after being hunted by another race of supernatural creatures. There are also were-creatures of various sorts, and even more races of supernatural, otherworldly creatures are introduced towards the end. The mythology behind the supernatural history and races in the story is unusual, especially for the romance subgenre, and hints at richness, and yet is also sketched only briefly; the book ends with the suggestion of a continuation of the series, which would be welcome, as I wanted to find out more about the mythology of these superhuman creatures, but ended up feeling as if that aspect could have been developed further to make it more satisfying. The romance side of the story, however, is very compelling and caused me to whip through the book in a single day. The main romantic pairing is between Tierney and Jax, both about to undergo their awakening as dragons at the beginning of the book. We discover that Jax was rescued from an abusive situation by Tierney's father and raised practically as her brother, although their feelings for each other have always been much more romantic than sibling-like. Jax, though, considers himself tainted and unworthy after the abuse he's suffered, and actively spurns Tierney's love. Tierney, who combines compassion with a considerable amount of spunk, pursues him while despite his rejection while also searching for her missing father and caring for other abused supernatural creatures. The sexual and romantic tension between the two characters is deftly raised to a fever pitch, and I found myself rooting hard for Tierney from the get-go. This is definitely romance with a dark and adult side, as the abuse the characters are trying to heal from is a major plot point, and the sex scenes are explicit (and very hot!). For readers looking for that kind of thing, "Dracones Awakening" is a fun, compelling read with a unique supernatural premise behind the romance. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Dragons are always gonna push my buttons, and I very rarely turn down the chance to read books with dragons as the main being. First time authors will also do it for me. They gotta start somewhere and I am happy to give anyone a chance. So when I came across this DRAGON book, by a FIRST TIME author, I knew, I just KNEW I had to read it! And I'm so glad I did! Its a little bit different, and different is always good. Dracones are the main paranormal being, but Tierney, Jax and Sami have yet to reach full maturity and cannot yet shift. Jax turns in the span of the book. But we have other beings here too, the Weres and Phoenix. Its written very well, from all the main characters POV, including the bad guys. And you all know how much I love hearing from the bad guys. BUT a little twist there, that was sprung on yu right at the end, so did NOT see that one coming. It does, at points, move fast, like rocket speed, and things get dropped in along the way that could have had a bigger build up. As a speed reader, it meant at points, I had to go back and check whether I had missed anything. But thats not always a bad thing. Once I got my head round Ms Marean's way of doing things, I paid better attention. Still surprised me at points, though. I enjoyed, very much, and I really wanna see how this author progresses. Sami is next, and I really need to read that one, cos its gonna be a scorcher!! 4 stars **same worded review will appear on Goodreads, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble**

You have such a nice set up for at least 11 more books based on the characters you have included in this book. This should keep you busy for awhile.

At first I thought your book would be long with not much of a storyline being drawn out to fill 200 pages but you put effort into creating a story that I had a hard time putting down without wordy fillers that some authors are pushing. I do not care for short stories but will read them as most leave the reader with unanswered questions so I hope you will not do this to any of the characters from this book. (Just a little pressure from a reader...smile) You might be able to get away with that as a novella for Thaniel's backstory but then he deserves another book with his future, alright it could be just one book. It is not often that I will butt into an author's world unless the story gets me wrapped up in their world. The work you produce gave me the shifter world, dragons, fairies, and a host of other creatures I liked to read about but gave them something different in their world other than the usually shifter meets mate fight the bad guy to keep mate storyline. The family structure is all over the place with daddy having a child he did not know about, to searching for a lost one, loved the explanation on the differences between "Okami, shifter and were-wolf", dragon but more than a dragon, hidden lineage on Zander, just so much more but the story was not bogged down every little but fell right into place.

    I was given this book for a honest review. And, I must say, I am SO happy I did. I read mostly within the Paranormal/Fantasy genre, but the little corner I love the most is dragons. This book gave that little niche a completely new and fresh perspective. I'm not going to review the plot as the blurb above does a great job of that by itself. But, I am going to point out how much fantabulous-ness seeps from these pages :). The writing is well done. The story line itself is amazing.

The story line itself is amazing. The characters are well built. And there are enough unanswered questions to lead into a second book, but not so many that you feel this book wasn't wrapped up. There's a little bit of something for everyone! Different speieces, emotional turmoil, Adventure, romance, action, Magic, family and friendships, villians and minions, and twists! I cannot wait for the second book, I'll be keeping a very keen dragon eye out for it. My only criticism is the over use of the word "baby" in the dialouges. But that's not enough for me to take anything away from my rating. Sheri-lynn deserves every one of those 5 stars. I'm assuming people such as myself, were her main target audience, and I can honestly say she hit the nail on the head, I am 100% with this book, series and Author at this point. And will be recommending it to my book groups.

    I don’t know what to say about this book that would do it justice. I mean it was amazing, wonderful and phenomenal. Sheri Lynn Marean has a wonderful way with words, I was so enraptured and involved in the book I actually missed an appointment I had. I kind of lost all track of time. I kept telling myself I could read just a few more pages I had time and then time just slipped away. I love in this book the Girl is the true hero.

Now she just has to get through to him. This book is a new take on the supernatural and I cannot wait for the next book to come out. Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book, please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it when you do; they value your opinions too.

    Re-read in 2020 - Audio review! As always I love me some Jax and Tierney. Oh and my sweet Sami! Gah. I forgot how much I loved this book! **** Holy Dragon Scales! I loved every word on every page! Ha. Totally in love with Jax, Teirney and Sami! Though, I love Jax the most. Lol It's taken me a few days, okay, a week or so to write this review because... I am still in Dragon hangover. Seriously. I can't stress just how much awesome this story has in it. It's a hurricane blowing through your mind... I Re-read in 2020 - Audio review!

I mean, dude.. its just awesome sauce! Three Dragons, a wolf pack, ​a scared Kitty and a helluva lot of emotions make this one fantastic story! I am a HUGE Dragon fan and I can say to date, this is one of the BEST stories I have read. Not taking away from the others but that is my honest opinion. The action, the emotions and the level of chaos are well balanced. The characters -though there were times where I wanted to put a boot in a certain blue Dragons hind end - were well rounded.

    Dracone was a huge surprise! This was a new to me author putting a fantastic spin on one of my favorite paranormal subjects, dragons. The uniqueness of her story telling made this book so compelling and engrossing. It was so chock full of information it bordered on too much but honestly there was just so much happening in the book it was action packed from the first chapter to the last page. At times it was almost non stop action. Peril and dangers are coming from so many sides the book is like Dracone was a huge surprise!

I had a very hard time putting the book away with so much going on. The characters were very highly developed and had rich surroundings described in vivid detail as well as well researched information. This book was a great first book in a series and I will highly recommend it to all who love fantasy, romance and paranormal books.

    **ARC received in exchange for an honest review** BUY THIS BOOK!!! The World and Characters Sheri-Lynn Marean has created in this first book of her Dracones Series is wonderfully crafted. Not something you find in most first time authors. I wish I had better words to express how good I think this book is. Her words breath life into complex characters who have to face challenges that us mere humans would never be able to deal with but they do so in very human ways: Happiness, fear, love , hate.

    It's hard to believe that this is this author's first book! You've got to be kidding me? What a natural talent. I have to say, I've read a lot of great books in my time but I think this author is gonna be at the top of my MUST READ list! I loved this whole world and the characters. There are some that I love to hate! The enemy. While I love Jax, there were times I wanted to choke him and tell him to wake up! But it all makes sense in the end why he is like he is. All I can say is WOW! And when i It's hard to believe that this is this author's first book! You've got to be kidding me? What a natural talent.
