Dragon Point isn’t a place, but rather a society, a secret one. And humans aren’t invited.
I’m a monster. That’s what Brandon thinks when he flees the medical institute that changed him. Living a normal life isn’t in the cards for him because, while he can hide his scaly skin, his wings are hard to miss. So he runs and lives in the shadows where monsters belong. What he didn’t expect to find were others just like him, and they call themselves dragons. Or so Aimi with the violet eyes tells him when she pins him to the ground.
Seriously, though, dragons?
He doesn’t want to believe, but the evidence is mounting. Not helping his resolve is the fact that the woman with the silver hair doesn’t fear the monster and wants to claim him.
However, before he can think of his own happiness, he has to rescue his little sister. Uncle Theo kidnapped her, and Brandon will do anything to get her back, even if he must embrace the monster within to become the dragon.

Becoming Dragon was a delightful tale, filled with humor, action, steam and more. The narration was well done, and I was so happy to have this to listen to on my commute to and from work.

Review - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Story:

Becoming Dragon is about… you guessed it – dragons! And it’s by Eve Langlais, so I knew I was in for some good laughs. Plus steamy romance, and I also got a rather down to earth and doubting hero. Brandon had been experimented on, and with his DNA sliced, he was in a weird hybrid form that made him think of himself as a monster. Aimi, however, did not find him to be monstrous at all. Quite the opposite, which made for some humorous scenes.

Searching for his sister, kidnapped by his uncle Theo Parker – owner and scientist of Bit Tech – Brandon really didn’t have time for Aimi. Even if it felt good to have someone look at him with admiration for once since he had been changed. Becoming Dragon included several dragon families, and they were fierce! Led by matriarchs, their society was different than what is usually depicted in fiction.

There was plenty of action in Becoming Dragon, with Brandon learning more about what he might become, fights mid-air, and scary powers, I was entertained from start to finish.

Characters:

Brandon was almost broken psychologically due to both what had been done to him, and what Bit Tech had made him do. He needed to learn to love and respect himself again. And at the same time, he had to embrace his other self, who gave him dubious advice at best.

Aimi was awesome! Headstrong, with awesome powers and enough wit to outsmart even the most hardened villain.

The other characters will probably have their own stories in upcoming installments, and I can’t wait to learn more about them all.

Narrators :

Chandry Skyye is an OK narrator, but not my favorite. Her pace is a little slow, and her range of different voices could be better. I will definitely continue with this series, though, because it made my commute fun.

Feels :

So many feels once more, both Brandon’s doubts and Aimi’s positivity were felt through their dialogues. Their attraction was palpable, and I can’t wait to read more about these dragons.

  1. Wonderful review. I’ve had my eye on this series and I’ve been thinking about picking up the audio. I might just read it since you talked about the narrator her range of different voices could’ve been better. Will see. Thank’s for the honest thoughts.

  2. I feel the same way about Chandra Skyye. I would’ve loved for Eve’s books to have a narrator that really brought out her humor. Someone like Lorelei King or Amanda Ronconi. She does have two series that Audible did that have great narrators. Freakn Shifters and FUC. I love the narrators for those two series.
