    • Updated 11/17/17: Just in time for the release of the next book in the series, The Consumption of Magic, the audiobook for A Destiny of Dragons, narrated by Michael Lesley, is now available!Audible: goo/YWLu9KEnjoy!tjDreamspinner: goo/xLf8qg: goo/56N4aNB&N: goo/cIi0aUKobo: goo/d6h4Ck

    • I truly loved every page of this story, but I admit that I went into it expecting the same over-the-top comedic punch to the face that T.J. delivered in "The Lightning-Struck Heart."However, this story showed a lot more restraint with those punches. It was almost as if the fists had uncurled and turned into much more gentle, tickling fingers, instead, dug firmly into my sides.Yes, I laughed, snorted and giggled (shut up, I was still totally manly about it!) through all 400 pages, as evident in t [...]

      Audiobook narration: 5 starsBook + narration: 3 starsBook by itself: (you don't want to know)Yes, I know, you don't even have to tell me! Amidst the sea of 5-star reviews, my pouty, downer review sort of sucks. I absolutely adore T.J. Klune, and I've never given him less than 3.5 stars (rounded up), so this is a departure for me. However, I almost DNFed A Destiny of Dragons (confession: I super-speeded through the end because I was over it by then), and there is just no way I can muster up enthu [...]

    • 4.5 StarsThe Lightning-Struck Heart was often compared to The Princess Bride (but more gay), and it was that. A Destiny of Dragons, though, reminded me a lot more of The Lord of the Rings, but funnier (and, ya know, more gay), and to me, anyway, more down to earth. While this series is, so far, Sam's Hero's Journey (it's capitalized, so you know it's a thing), the story doesn't take itself too too seriously. And I loved it. TJ, TJ, TJ -- you need to write faster!A Destiny of Dragons is delightfu [...]

    • Spoiler-free review:~4.5 stars~If you asked me what my favorite MM romance book is, I would say, without hesitation, The Lightning-Struck Heart. If a book can make me both 1)laugh out loud with the banter and 2)make me cry because of feelings (I'm a cold-hearted bitch who doesn't cry), it's doubtful that book will not be a 4-5 star read. TLSH delivered more lolz and wookie cry face moments than any book out there, at this point in time. It's been out for two years, and I've read it six times. SI [...]

    • I have said it before and I am saying it again TJ Klune must possess some kind of magic himself. Once again he has left me in aweI have re-read "The Lighting Struck Heart" over and over againI will continue to do so in the future because it never fails to put a smile on my face. It is the funniest book I have ever read and for those of you who haven't read it yetPlease go do it now, you will thank me later. This book is one of the 3 books that will follow my favorite group of merry men from "Th [...]

      ➦Honestly honestly I've never thought that a gay unicorn could make me cry from laughter, mostly. These characters T.J. Klune created are completely obnoxious but I ended up falling in love with all of them. ➦I don't even think this particular series can be classified in any one category It has fantasy, humor, and romance all in one. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys M/M. This second installment sure did bring some extra steam to satisfy those who might be curious about ho [...]

    • ETA for audiobook 11/20/2017While I was reading the book I kept picturing in my head how it was going to sound when it came out on audio. I didn’t even come close. Michael Lesley blew my expectations out of the water and does another fantastic job! He continues to prove just how perfectly cast he was for this series.The narration isn’t flawless. There are some changes to some of the character voices – for example Kevin's voice is not so deep and the echo is a little less pronounced as well [...]

    • 4.5 StarsA Destiny of Dragons is just as impressive in scope and as side-splittingly hilarious as its predecessor, but with an even more pronounced sense of epic-ness, if that’s at all possible.In this sequel to The Lightning-Struck Heart, Sam of Wilds and his remarkable gang of misfit friends are all here and accounted for, this time facing challenges far greater and more life threatening than anything they’ve encountered before. Some seriously problematic and potentially horrific prophesie [...]

    • I will never forget how much I enjoyed the fantasy tale (for adult only !!) that The Lightning-Struck Heart was. So much laugh and so many feels brought by a cast of crazy but oh so engaging characters, Sam the Wizard (OK, apprentice !!), Ryan the dashing knight, Tiggy the incredible Hulk half giant, Gavin the Unicorn PG18, scratched that, PG 30 and Kevin the perv dragon.So, all of them are still together, still talking non-sense, still making me laugh while sometimes scarring me for life (I don [...]

    • 4.5 hearts! “Fuck dragons,” Gary said. “You’ve got a destiny of dick ahead of you.”Look, if you're reading this book it's means you've already read the first book and most likely freakin loved it! (If you haven't, well go read the first book!). The story is so riveting, I thought it'd take ages to read a book this long but I was glued to the friendship, love, humor and adventure on each page!I adore these characters and want them tattooed all over my body, like every where! Kevin would [...]

    • This one took me a while but I blame my post surgery drugged out state ! I love TJ - one of my all time favorites and again he didn't disappoint. I found it a bit slow at first and I was waiting for the ridiculous hilarity I was expecting only to realize this was a lot more composed with an almost " serious " edge to it . my oh my Sam is growing up ! This story stayed on the path of Sams destiny and the dragon connection. While this was the key factor I must say I loved the chemistry between Rya [...]

    • “You have a destiny Sam.” Yeap. That sentence kind of sums this book up. Sam isn’t simply a wizard’s apprentice who gets to live his HEA with his “strong and brave, dashing and immaculate” Knight Commander. No, the universe has got much bigger plans for him. Plans, he really really doesn’t want to have a part in. Then ancient secrets are revealed, trust is broken and old friendships are challenged. On top of all that, Sam’s very grumpy, hard-ass gypsy grandma, Vadoma, turns up, [...]

    • DNFed at 50%I had such a great time with the first book but I think the novelty wore off and it didn't offer anything extra. It started to be draining if nothing else and after a pause I just found myself not really caring. Maybe it's the mood, who knows! Hope others enjoyed this :)

    • You are not ready, the Great White had saidThere will be loss, the star dragon had said.Fuck them.Fuck them all.I was Sam of Wilds.And I was going to face my godsdamned destinyGODS, how I loved this book. It wasn’t that OTT hilarious as the first one of the series The Lightning Struck Heart, but I loved it nevertheless. Sam and Ryan’s relationship was solid. It was good to experience a more serious Sam. Although this book was still full of ridiculously silliness.All the other characters were [...]

      4.5 Stars!Not surprisingly, I don’t have much else to say or add to the multitudes of reviews loving this book hard except that I concur! This is full of adventure and so much snark that the genius of Klune consistently shines through!Sam is still Sam. Kinda oblivious, definitely talkative, one who finds himself in all the crazy situations one can dream of and then some, but when push comes to shove, he is a man of honor and goodness.Right by his side is the ever faithful Gary, Tiggy (I love h [...]

    • If you thought the e-book was goodYou really, really need to listen to this one on audioWhen this was first released back in June of this year I read itere was no way I was waiting any longer for more Sam, Knight Delicious-face, Gary, Kevin and Tiggy and I loved it the story was all kinds of epic and awesome and I distinctly remember writing a rather effusive review were included, here's the link if you're curious Review: A Destiny of DragonsMichael Lesley was the narrator for 'A Destiny of Drag [...]

    • A Destiny of Dragons is my most anticipated read of 2017. I have been waiting for this book since I first read The Lightning Struck Heart and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Did it meet my expectations? Nope. It exceeded them. This story has a more serious tone than TLSH. Now, that isn’t to say it doesn’t have humor; there’s plenty of snark and witty banter, but it doesn’t have the cracky hilarity that I found in the first book. And, to be honest, I think I liked it better that [...]

    • I’m with Jenni Lea on this one, this A Destiny of Dragons was the book I’ve been looking forward to the most this year and man, did this story deliver and then some. All the fabulousness was present, all the snark and all the dysfunctional unconditional love. We can all agree that Lightning Struck Heart was basically the most fun a person can have reading a book, agreed? Well, Destiny of Dragon’s is that much fun, but it’s also more. I wouldn’t say it’s heavier than TLSH, I would say [...]

    • If you read 'The Lightening Struck Heart' thanyou know you want this book and if you haven't read TLSHwhat the hell dude? Seriously what are you waiting for? You need this book in your life. For one thing because it's awesome and secondly because you can't read 'Destiny of Dragons' without reading 'The Lightening Struck Heart' first and who wants to miss out on 2 awesome books when they don't have tojust putting that out there for the universe'Destiny of Dragons' is fantasy wait it's epic fantas [...]

      A Destiny of Dragons is the very much anticipated sequel to The Lightning-Struck Heart. The first book in this series was a bit of a shocker for me, with an odd yet absolutely hilarious concept and execution, so I couldn’t wait to see what was in store next for Sam of Wilds and his band of merry misfits.This story picks up a little bit after the close of book one. Sam and Ryan are (finally) happy and in love, and the world seems to be coming up roses and hornless unicorns. Yet all that is thro [...]

    • Ohmygod Ohmygod OHMYGOD!!!! Where does the fan club meet?!

    • 3.5 starsI didn’t love this like I thought I would. And I feel so sad about it.This book felt VERY different from the Lightning-Struck Heart, which is my favorite book of all time (I even got a cat whom I named Sam). TLSH was funny, upbeat and just such a happy book. This book was all gloom and doom. Yes, there were the jokes, but it was hard to really get into the fun of it when there was the constant threat of death and betrayal, and then more death.What I loved about the first book was the [...]

      4.25-4.5 stars. Holy. Crap. That ending though. I love this series. I'm being so serious when I say this, but this series has changed me. What do you read after this? I can't wait for the next book. But until then, you'll see me sulking around, missing the crap out of these guys.

    • That time T.J gave me my favorite character. or you know, a ADoD review that mentions Tiggy a lot because brooms. Reading this book was like visiting your friends that you love but live in different states and when you see each other yo are so excited that you can't stop smiling.I loved every line in this book, there is not a single thing that I would change. Sam has a destiny, he needs to make a decision about what he is going to do about that destiny (even if he hates we call it a destiny and [...]

    • Following the story set up in The Lightning Struck Heart, A Destiny of Dragons is the first in the continuing three part series, Tales From Verania , that T.J. Klune is calling the “Destiny Fuck Yeah Trilogy”. Much like Lord of the Rings, Tales from Verania is a series in parts and thankfully the remaining two books are being published shortly, so don’t let the word cliffhanger put you off. If you’re a fan of Sam of Wilds you have to read this book!Now that Sam has his happily ever after [...]

    • So many times with follow ups to well loved books, expectations can be a real bitch. If you read The Lightning-Struck Heart *and of course you did* *and if you didn't, WTF are you waiting for? O.o* you went into this expecting it to be LOL funny. And of course, it was. I mean, come on, there's Gary, Tiggy, Kevin, Sam of Wilds and Knight Delicious Face. There's no way that's not going to be hilarious and so much damn fun. But the tone of ADoD is a lot more than just outrageousness. So much happen [...]

    • 3,5 starsThat wast what I expected.And I think that's a theme for this series, you think you know what to expect, and then something completely different happens. Don't get me wrong, it's still utterly ridiculous, crazy and unbelievable. And the characters we fell in love with in The Lightning-Struck Heart are still as lovable and nuts as they were before, along with some new ones in this one. But A Destiny of Dragons still wasn't what I expected it to be.This book started out on the slow side, [...]

    • 4.5 /5. Oh my sweet sweet sassy lightning struck apprentice wizard and his crew of unicorns, dashing knights, half giants and dragons. I really do love them.Cry of laughter, cry of fondness, cry of fear.Gods, I'm so scared of what's going to happen next
