The third installment in Maria Grace’s Dragon series picks up right where Longbourn: Dragon Entail left off and it was equally exciting, especially because we are finally introduced to Netherfield, a new Dragon that was unknown until now, and who proved to be one of my favourite characters in the entire series.
Netherfield: Rogue Dragon has more adventure and mystery than the previous books in the series, with kidnappings and secret tunnels making Elizabeth’s life harder, but it also offers the reader more scenes of Darcy and Elizabeth which was something I really appreciated. Even though this fantasy series is not a romance, I do like to have ODC at the center of the stage, and this is what we had in this book where Mr. Darcy comes to Elizabeth’s rescue and offers her his full support. In this third book Elizabeth is lonelier than ever with Longbourn cutting ties with her and finally banning her from the estate, so it is only natural that her fiancé is now the person she goes to for support. But Elizabeth’s relationship with Darcy was not the only reason why I found the the arc of Elizabeth’s and Longbourn’s relationship so interesting. I also liked to see Elizabeth grow as a human being, accepting she may have been wrong and apologising for her mistakes.
Elizabeth was not the only character I liked to see growing in this novel, one of my favourite aspects in this book was the continuing development of Longbourn’s personality and his eventual redemption, I wonder how his relationship with Netherfield will evolve and how Mr. Collins will be able to handle him. Will he ever love Mary as much as he loves Elizabeth?
The Bennet sisters continue to play their role in this story, and Mary in joined by Lydia in this adventure. Unfortunately Lydia is Lydia, so her involvement will only cause trouble, but I liked the way Maria Grace developed the events in which Lydia is present. Jane is another Bennet sister I would like to mention, she is not a favourite of mine, but I found it strange for her to be continuously absent from these stories, and this may be one of the few details that got me thinking.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and the ending Maria Grace gave to this series. It was the perfecting ending and an incredible ride I never expected to enjoy so much. I highly recommend it.
Elizabeth Bennet’s Level
This was the second audiobook from Benjamin Fife I heard and once more I was amazed by his style of narration. Every single dragon was portrayed in a different manner and in this book he created the voice I loved the most in the entire series: Netherfield. Benjamin Fife’s interpretation of this character was incredible! My absolute favourite! Not only the tone of voice was enchanting, but the accent was equally interesting. After having heard is narration of these books, I honestly cannot think any other narrator for this story.
Benjamin Fife was the best narrator Maria Grace could have chosen for these stories, and I hope he returns with the new Kellynch books.
