After thousands of years, they're back.

Paranoid inventor and draconian expert Sam isn't anything special...and that's all he wants anyone who may be watching to think about him. Sam is a conspiracy theorist who lives on the fringes, preferring to keep a low profile while he does what he knows best: study the ancient draconian culture he knows isn't a fairy tale. Aided by his intuitive ability to create gadgets and harness sound waves, Sam changes identities and addresses as often as he changes his clothes...all in a lifelong quest to evade The Man. When he accidentally wakes a "sleeping" dragon who insists they are mates, Sam's carefully structured world shifts sideways.

Blaze is a dragon alpha guardian assigned to protect the Crown Prince of Novis. When he and his men at arms are sent into stasis after a battle for their lives, the last thing he expects after being awakened is to find himself thousands and thousands of years in the future. Not only is he now in a modern world where his kingdom no longer exists, but the people here believe dragons are nothing more than mythological creatures. The sound of his true mate's heartsong coming from the adorably awkward omega who freed him from stasis gives the alpha all the reason he needs to quickly acclimate to the changes the fates have thrown his way. But first, he needs to make Sam see reason and admit that not only is he an omega, but also Blaze's mate.

Is Sam truly paranoid if someone is watching them? Settle in and let our dragons sweep you off your feet...and into a world filled with adventure!

Alpha Ablaze is the second audiobook in the Waking the Dragons series and features literally rock-hard hunks, a group of dragon hunters who shouldn't be discounted, something called a "Corny", and an HEA just as legendary as the dragons in it. This audiobook contains Mpreg and is 18-plus only. But did you really expect anything less from Susi and Piper?

4.5 Stars Overall

Alpha Ablaze is the second book in the Waking the Dragons series and it needs to be read/listened to in order, since not only does it follow the storyline that started in book 1, but there are a lot of recurring characters and you'll be thoroughly lost otherwise and truly, it's so good, that you don't want to miss out.

We met Sam in the previous book and truly, I wasn't too sure what to expect. He grated on my nerves then a bit, and he still did so here, but I warmed up to him after learning of his backstory and seeing why he's as high strung as he is. Blaze, though, I adored! I think he's my favorite character so far! He's so much fun and so patient with Sam, I loved how loving and protective he was.

I'm loving the ongoing plotline and I'm eager to find out about the missing dragon shifter. And of course, I'm just adoring the dynamics between all the shifters and their mates and friends. I'm quite eager to reading more about Peter, perhaps with Sana?

Colin Darcy did a fantastic job with the narration, he brought Sam's paranoid personality and Blaze's Alpha/carefree/easygoing attitude perfectly to life and I loved all the different voices he used for the different characters.

Be it on audiobook or ebook, I think this is a must in any paranormal Alpha/Omega lover's library!
