After barely escaping the machinations of his terrifying mother, two all-knowing seers, and countless bloodthirsty siblings, the last thing Julius wants to see is another dragon. Unfortunately for him, the only thing more dangerous than being a useless Heartstriker is being a useful one. Now that he's got an in with the Three Sisters, Julius has become a key pawn in Bethesda the Heartstriker's gamble to put her clan on top. Refusal to play along with his mother's plans means death, but there's more going on than even Bethesda knows. Heartstriker futures are disappearing, and Algonquin's dragon hunter is closing in. Now, with his most powerful family members dropping like flies, it's up to Julius to save the family that never respected him and prove once and for all that the world's worst dragon is the very best one to have on your side.… (meer)

Third time finishing reading: 11 mei 2018
Soo... Let's upgrade my star rating shall we? Because I really enjoyed this, AGAIN!

Second time finished reading: 24 aug 2016
Ok I had a whole speech like thing in my head about why I like this story so much and why I love the way it is written even more. Then I realised that putting my thoughts on paper in English.. not my strongest point.

I can say this. Although diversity is not really... the thing (not the right word) when reading this story, it was what I could imagine. Maybe I overlooked things but except for one dragon clan who were specific blond and pale. The rest of them were delightfully vague. They had black hair and green eyes. The green eyes I didn't get. But I started reading book #3 and now I do.

Is it prefect? No, for example: looking native-american is not a look. There were so many tribes and America is a big place. So yeah. It's like saying: 'He looked Asian.' Ok but what kind of Asian? Because Asia is very very very big. Or 'She looks European.' Again the majority of people in Denmark look very different than the majority of people in Spain.

But the minor characters were also diverse. Or vague enough that I could imagine that. And I like that in my fantasy.

Also (kind of a spoiler for book 3, hurray for calling somebody dark-skinned! so delightfully vague.

The second book in the Heartstriker series sees seers plotting, dragons acting like dragons, and Julius doing his own thing.

Estella of the Northern Star, oldest daughter of the Three Sisters, has a plan to bring down the Heartstrikers, and, especially, defeat her rival seer Bob, otherwise known and Brohomir, Great Seer of the Heartstrikers.

Meanwhile, Julius is in the DFZ where he and his human friend and mage Marci have attracted the attention of Algonquin and her dragon hunter Vann Jeger who is a water spirit known as the Death of Dragons. When Marci is captured and put under a death curse, they have less than twenty-four hours to defeat and unbeatable foe.

That should be enough for anyone to deal with, but Julius also has to deal with his ruthless and treacherous mother Bethesda and his sister Chelsie who is his mother's bound hit-woman. She's been sent to the DFZ to kill Julius.

This episode also introduces Amelia who is Bethesda's oldest surviving child and heir. She doesn't want the job and has spent her time out on the planes to avoid it and avoid assassination by Bethesda who doesn't want any rivals.

Julius has to use all his special and undraconic abilities in order to make things right, defeat Estella's planned future, and bring about the future that he wants.

This was a great story excellently narrated by Vikas Adam. I liked the worldbuilding and characters. ( )

You could learn to hate seers

I really enjoyed this novel. The little guy triumphing against the odds, the best laid plans being torn apart. We learn a lot about the history of dragons and more about magic. This is a rollicking good time that ends with a REALLY big bang. And sets up the next novel with...I don't know, but it's huge. The best part is: the end keeps twisting. One 'holy crap' moment followed by another. When you read it, you will know.

Minimal romance elements; other than a starting relationship there is nothing even vaguely erotic. Violence, but not gore.

I am pre-ordering the next book ( )
