The whole idea behind the story was interesting, but the way the story was written didn't get to me. It felt like It all went too fast, too many things were mentioned, but never explained. There's no connection with the main characters, no reason to like them. At most I felt like Eva pissed me off and Ash was a total pushover. And their behavior is strange. Ash seems to agree with everything that's happening to him, even when others lie to him all the time. Oh and then there's the ending... well ...more

Too cute. I just wish it was longer, more detailed, more filled out. But loads of potential for younger readers.
I received a free copy of this book from Lady Amber's Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.

The Dragon Heart Keeper
by L.L. Hunter is the prequel novella that started the series. When Ashley Brandon is framed for murder, his sentence is an unusual one. He must live for one year as a dragon. Ash never knew his heritage as a Dragon Heart, aka dragon shifter. Nor did he know that there was another realm parallel to thi
One of the worst books (if you can even call it a book) I've read in a while... Thank god it was less than 100 pages (eBook) otherwise I would've just left it after the first couple of chapters.

Don't get me wrong - it had the potential to be an awesome book/novella, but it was poorly executed. Some serious editing needs to take place.

Waste of time - don't bother reading it.

Awesome short story!
I really enjoyed it and I wish that I had bought the more of her other books right away so that I could keep going! The rest of L.L. Hunter books are now on my TBR! I highly recommend this short story and this author!

The story idea is interesting, though poorly executed. There is little to the story but sudden jumps from scene to scene with no actual plot discussed through most of it. The only bit of plot you get feels like the "silver railroad" that gamers get stuffed onto by GMs.

Not really worth reading.

My only complaint about this book? It was too short. I read it in a matter of 10 minutes, but it left me hungry for more. I'm so glad it's a series, now to find the next book! ...more
