Audiobook Review: Dragon’s Gift (The Dragon’s Gift Trilogy, #1-3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dragon’s Gift by Jasmine Walt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Three dragons. One woman. A reverse harem fantasy that will leave you breathless and begging for more…  

Dareena Sellis is a nobody. The orphaned daughter of a no-name farmer, she toils away as a serving girl at Hallowdale Inn, her only marriage prospects either shipping off to war, or pawing at her skirts with their grubby, gnarled hands. 

But fate takes a strange turn the day a dragon huntress comes to town. Suddenly, Dareena is swept off to Dragon’s Keep, trading in her raggedy dresses for silken gowns, her closet-sized room for feather pillows and spacious gardens, and her miserable suitor for three very handsome, very virile dragon princes. 

For Dareena is not a nobody. She is the Dragon’s Gift—the one woman chosen by the gods every century to bear children for the future king of Dragonfell. 

Despite her pre-ordained path, Dareena’s fate is far from certain. The crown has not given birth to more than one son in nearly a thousand years, and the line of succession is far from clear. Neither of the princes are willing to cede Dareena to the other, and yet she must choose. For the enemy is knocking on Dragonfell’s door, and Dareena’s decision could either mean the kingdom’s salvation… 

…or annihilation.

The heroine: Dareena – She is an orphan and a serving girl at a local inn. Her boss wants to marry her, though she has yet to give him an answer. He is older with yellow teeth and a tobacco stained beard. Though when he dies she would get the inn, which is more than a girl like her can hope for.

The Heroes: Drystan, Lucyen, Alistair – Triplets and sons of the dragon king. The dragons and the Elves are enemies from long ago when the Elves killed their mother. Though when one of their cousins is kidnapped by the Elves, they find from the Elvin prince Ryalus that what they believed might not be true.

The Story: For centuries the Dragon prince has traditionally found his mate after the dragon hunt where three of the most beautiful girls in the village are chosen in a ceremony by the dragon huntress. Though this year there is a difference, since there is not one but three princes and succession is unknown.

Dareena has no thought of being chosen as she is a commoner. However, when she is one of the three chosen to participate in the ritual at Dragons Keep. She is later discovered to be the Dragon’s gift in the ritual yet the King still hasn’t chosen which one of his sons will be his heir, so meanwhile she dates all three of the princes.

There is a decent side storyline about the King who has gone crazy since his mate died, who obviously doesn’t want to give up his throne to any of his children. He is doing some bizarre things. Also the storyline about who actually killed the mother. The King had been doing many crazy things since his mate died and there was a lot of unrest in the kingdom in addition to the war between Dragonfell and Elvinheim.

The story is told in multiple points of view in dual narration. Narrated by Kate Marcin and Adam Gold who did a good job. The narration is done with a British accent which works well for royals. Kate has a soft pleasing voice and Adam has a very deep and gravelly voice which works well for the Dragon Princes. The storylines are good and the world building was surprising and interesting.
