      I m still debating whether to put Nice Dragons finish last in my list of favoritesI ll wait to see how I feel about the sequel.Ok, ok, how do I start I was freaking bored with this book XD Yep, that s how I felt at first Julius, the protagonist, was too nice, too misunderstood, too predictable The supporting cast failed to impress me too, as if they all had a couple of personality traits and that was it the nasty and dangerous big sister the crazy, all knowing brother the hyper active and annoyi [...]

      10 30 2017 AUDIBLE DAILY DEAL 4.95 IS A STEAL Y ALL I ve talked about my rocky relationship with Urban Fantasy in the past It s often formulaic it usually doesn t satisfy my craving for a Fantasy adventure because of its tendency to focus on sexual encounters However, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Nice Dragons Finish Last The Heartstrikers are a large clan of dragons known for their ferocity power Headed up by their matriarch, Bethesda, they exude the type of unyielding superi [...]

      I didn t have any expectations when I picked this book up and was pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable it was At first glance, one might mistake this for young adult fantasy Rest assured, it is not and neither does it have all the standard overused YA tropes which are prone to induce eye rolling.This is an urban fantasy tale about dragons which are able walk the earth in human form Rachel Aaron created a really interesting world that takes place in the future where magic which had disappeared f [...]

      4.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2015 03 10 aI found this book surprisingly enjoyable or perhaps that ought not to be so surprising After all, I loved The Spirit Thief and the rollicking sci fi Paradox trilogy that the author wrote under her pen name Rachel Bach Still, combining dragons, magic, dystopia, humor and urban fantasy Seemed just a tad ambitious But boy, does Aaron pull it off with flying colors I think Nice Dragons Finish Last may be my favorite book from her yet I al [...]

      DNF at 45% This just isn t working for me I really tried I seem to be having a streak of bad luck with books This one looked really good, but it felt very meh and vanilla, bland The world was interesting, but I could not get into Julius s character The set up is a 24 year old dragon shifter gets sealed in his human body by his mother, who is very unhappy because he doesn t act like a proper dragon should He s too nice He gets one change to dragon up or get eaten and is tasked with finding a dra [...]

      I really like Ms Aaron as an author I loved Eli Monpress and now I have Heartstrikers.From a purely narrative standpoint, the story was a lot of fun Great pacing, compelling characters, and an interesting story line You will likely read many reviews to that end I hope you also read some great reviews about how kindness isn t weakness and finding your own identity This will not be that review.I will focus on the art of collaborative negotiation as taught by this book These lessons are important t [...]

      Julius is a 24 year old dragon, the youngest and smallest in his family He s been cast out by mom because he basically spends all his time shut away in his room, earning online degrees, playing online games with humans and not even winning , and just basically not doing anything dragony enough with his dragon life Part of me sides with mom on this, even if she s a bit ruthless about the way she goes about things All this because, as the title of the book suggests, Julius is this and far less t [...]

      4.5 stars I am giving the sequel a space to grow I loved it and can not wait for the next one It is not a secret that I am nuts about dragons and my all time favorite series is about the flying magical beasts, so my falling for this book was not particularly surprising What did surprise me was the ease with which the author emersed us in this magic infused world and the Heartstriker family politics Everything unfolds with increasing pace and the end promises a lot fun to follow loved it For the [...]

      Full review over at Fantasy Book Critic ANALYSIS Once Rachel Aaron mentioned this book to me in one of our email correspondence, I begged pleaded with her to let me read it in its draft form To my joy, she agreed and I was able to read it a year ago To say I was pleased with the book would be an understatement But first I was curious as to why she was going the self publishing route and she wonderfully explains this decision in this blogpost over at Civilian Reader Go take a read or otherwise wa [...]

      2.5 Slooooooow starter starsFirst, you should know that I have friends that LOVED this book It was a buddy read for one of my groups but it was scheduled at the same time as Life so I missed it and was incredibly bummed when all of the great reviews began popping up in my feed When one of my other reading groups added it to their schedule I knew I had to get in on it because DRAGONS view spoiler if you don t already know this about me, Dragons are my absolute favorite mythical creature, unless s [...]

      Dnf at 50%This isn t working for me Too childish and na ve for my taste It doesn t help that author has a habit of stating the obvious and then explaining it just in case you didn t grasp it the first time, repeatedly There is just so much groaning and eye rolling I can do Giving it 2 stars since worldbuilding is passable.Feels like this is directed towards much younger audience Could work for adults who enjoy reading children s books.

      Nice Dragons Finish Last was our audio book pick for our summer road trip and happily it lived up to our expectations I initially thought it was a YA book, but it isn t However it was still appropriate for my young teen daughter s to listen to The narrator was great, and that s something that is so important when listening to an audio book I ve enjoyed all of Rachel Aaron s Bach s books so far My daughters enjoyed this one just as much as I did One of them said she would give it 5 stars We can t [...]

      Very enjoyable start to a new fantasy trilogy by the author of Fortune s Pawn This story is full of dangerous magical creatures who returned to the world after a comet strike in 2035 Julius is the black sheep of his family because he refuses to act like a dragon His mother takes away his power to shift to dragon form and drops him penniless in the middle of the Detroit Free Zone, a place where dragons are killed on sight He teams up with a mage Marci on the run from her father s killer and they [...]

      This is a slightly silly but highly amusing story about a dragon named Julienwho is the runt of his litter As he s part of the Heartstrikers this just can t be, they don t show weakness, so Julien has to prove himself somehow After a few years when Julien still hasn t proven his dragon skills his mother decides to send him out trapped as a human to complete a quest and prove himself a worthy dragon This is where the story really begins What I liked about this urban fantasy is that it s kind of r [...]

      4.5For some, there is no harsh judge than family Imagine a family of power hungry and ruthless dragons where you are the fail, the shame, the runt and worst NICE Julius Heartstriker is one of the youngest of Bethesda, he is pacifist and accepted that as the runt he better keep out of the way of big predators hiding in his room, being a slacker, playing games and studying online Well, mommy dearest take the swim or die approach and kick him out of home with no clothes or money, and sealed from h [...]

      Even though comedy is one of my favorite things in any genre, I tend to be wary at first about up comedies from unfamiliar authors because humor is so subjective that even though something comes highly recommended it can still fall flat SO HAPPY this didn t happen this time This book hit all the right buttons for me I haven t a read a ton of urban fantasy, nothing against it I just haven t explored it much, and I think this has just topped the list for me This book is set in the future and the m [...]

      Books 1 3 Review 4 stars for book 1 Rachel Aaron who also writes as Rachel Bach is easily one of my top ten favorite authors I ve read everything she s published so far and have been blown away with every book check out her Eli Monpress fantasy series and Paradox scifi series if you have a chance you won t be disappointed Then along came the Heartstrikers series an urban fantasy about a clan of shapeshifting dragons and one who doesn t quite fit in and I was beside myself with excitement The coo [...]

      When this book first came my way, I didn t recognize the name Rachel Aaron and was surprised when a friend talked about her like she s someone I m supposed to be very familiar with The joke s on me though, guys, because Rachel Aaron is Rachel Bach, author of the Paradox trilogy, published by Orbit, which I m currently enjoying in audio format For reasons I can only assume, Aaron Bach chose to take the self published route with her new Heartstrikers series, and while I m sure promoting it will be [...]

      Series review Warning this gif is NOT representative of the dragons in this series, except maybe Julius Who knew that niceness could be soI can t believe I m saying this, but a mere YA series has become my absolute favorite new to me series of the year The plot is super fun, sweet, blood thirsty and action packed It follows Julius a young dragon sealed in human form, who is kicked out of his home for being too NICE and Marci Novalli a down on her luck mage with dangerous secrets of her own as th [...]

      3.5 5 4 stars B I can t recall where I read about this author trying her hand at self publishing with this book but I thought I d check it out, mostly because I like dragons, humour, and magic I am glad I did check it out and will definitely read by Rachel Aaron This book had the feel of a story written for youth but it is not immature or bopperish The main characters a young dragon shape shifter, on the outs with his clan because he s too nice , and a young mage, on the run from this world s v [...]

      If you haven t started this series stop everything and start nowThis series is beyound amazing I cannot believe I had never stumbled upon it before I read it days ago and i m still hyped and the good thing is that it gets better with every book I was on the fence about Julius because he really was too nice and even in the fourth book he is still that way but he is way assertive,Marci is my spirit animal, absolutely love her Bob, Chelsie, Amelia, Justin I can t even pick who I don t like in this [...]

      It was great Except for the typos Typooooos Lol, no seriously, there were only a couple, mostly tense errors or missing words Awesome story Tight plotting Fascinating characters Cool world building And Funny Will get the next book immediately if out.

      Why does everyone always pick on the nice guy Poor Julian has a rough road in Nice Dragons Finish Last He s been picked on and ostracized his entire life by his family and all others of his kind dragon kind He was the runt in a the most recent clutch of dragons born about 24 years ago to Bethesda the matriarch of the Heartstriker clan And his family hasn t let him forget for one moment how much of a failure he is because he doesn t have any of the personality traits expected in a dragon Ruthless [...]

      Wow I finally finished this one It s about dang time This is not like a real review per se I just wanted to say that I liked it I think it is a good foundation for the series to build on The secondary characters carried this story for me Julius is not a bad main character, he s just so into maintaining his good guy persona that he becomes a little bit bland But the rest of the guys really worked for me I want to see of them And this new venture with Marci sounds promising We shall see

    27. Hollie on said:

      3.5 stars my 12 yr old daughter gave it 4 stars, I gave it 3 This was a really sweet PG dragon shifter read I liked the characters and the plot was fast paced It was definitely YA but it wasn t done in a way that felt juvenile My daughter is in middle school and loved this I personally prefer adult reads, but it was still pretty cute The cover doesn t give it justice A nice start to the series.

    28. Laura (Kyahgirl) on said:

      4 5 4 stars A I am glad I got this on audio because its a great story and the audiobook was well done Vikas Adam is a narrator I am not familiar with but I look forward to hearing him narrate stories His voice was suited to the types of characters in this fun fantasy This book would appeal to children as well as adults I think because so many of the characters are young and dealing with begin out on their own against huge odds.

      Julius is a dragon cut off from his powers and sent on an impossible quest to prove himself or be eaten He is just too nice What a fun book it is funny, exciting, and I m so glad I picked it up
