Fantasy seems to be hit or miss for me. In the case of Dragon Ascending, I don’t want to call it boring, it was very slow and not all that memorable or interesting.

The entire time I was listening to Dragon Ascending, I felt like I was in a greater fantasy world, but zoomed in on a group of side characters and their slow, meandering, uninteresting story. I was more interested in the stories the characters told each other than I was in the main characters.

The narrator was great overall, but he did say the word “sawr”. If you read any of my reviews, you’ll know I often rant about narrators who can’t pronounce basic words, add or remove letters to them, and how insufferable I find it.

I don’t think this is a bad book, I just don’t know who I’d recommend it to. I doubt kids would have the attention span to listen to this story and adults would likely have 100 other options that would have them far more invested from the very start.
