Summary: After barely escaping the machinations of his terrifying mother, two all knowing seers, and countless bloodthirsty siblings, the last thing Julius wants to see is another dragon. Unfortunately for him, the only thing more dangerous than being a useless Heartstriker is being a useful one, and now that he’s got an in with the Three Sisters, Julius has become a key pawn in Bethesda the Heartstriker’s gamble to put her clan on top.

Refusal to play along with his mother’s plans means death, but there’s more going on than even Bethesda knows, and with Estella back in the game with a vengeance, Heartstriker futures disappearing, and Algonquin’s dragon hunter closing in, the stakes are higher than even a seer can calculate. But when his most powerful family members start dropping like flies, it falls to Julius to defend the clan that never respected him and prove that, sometimes, the world’s worst dragon is the best one to have on your side.

After finishing book 1 a couple of months back I knew I couldn't resist starting book 2. It took me a little bit (other books had to be read), but I finally got my opening to listen to this! 

The story starts about a month after the ending of the last book. Estella is back in the game with a new and more deadly plan. With Heartstriker futures disappearing and Algonquin's dragon hunter on the move, the stakes are higher and more deadly. Julius is their only hope in saving the Hearstrikers. 

This was even better than the first one! I was hooked from page one and I could barely tear myself away from the story! Darn life getting in the way of my listening time! *shakes fist* 

Poor Julius. He just wants to be happy and make a living. 

I love Amelia and Bob and Marci and Justin. They are fun. I even like Chelsea now. WHA??? She is badass, but there is a heart under all that and it made me smile to see it. 

I do feel for Estella, but she goes too far in this one. 

That cat....I didn't see THAT coming. 

The ending was also a surprise for me. HOW IS THIS GOING TO WORK???? I would've gone a different route, but maybe that is because I am more dragon then Julius is ;) But yes...I see his point. 

The narrator is fantastic. I adore him. He really knows how to bring the story to life and all his voices are different. And there are A LOT of character running amok. Kuddos to the narrator!

Overall, I lovvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvved this one. It was good. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. You MUST listen to this series instead of reading it because the narrator is AWESOME. I'll give this 5 stars of course.
