Julius is not your typical dragon. All he wants is a quiet life—but that's impossible being that he’s the youngest member of the Heartstriker Clan, renowned for their ruthlessness. Narrator Vikas Adam’s streamlined voice can smoothly shift from the easygoing tones of Julius to the venomous arrogance of his mother, Bethesda, who is fully prepared to devour him whole if he doesn't start earning his talons. Sealed in his human form and dropped into the mean streets of a magical Detroit, Julius is out of luck— until he runs into fledgling mage Marci. Adam pays close attention to the characters and their evolution. For instance, as Marci becomes further empowered, the nervous quaver in her voice lessens. This is urban fantasy at its best. E.E.
