Continue to hide or help save the very kin she's hidden from?
Welcome to SYN Consulting, the top business strategy consulting firm in Europe, home to a motley crew whose leader has a life changing secret. CEO, Danica Lestrange, is the first female dragon born in the last 800 years. Hidden from the rest of her kin and raised in the human world, she built a life that she would defend until her death.
A devious plan is unearthed while working on a new business deal that could plunge the dragons into another war with the humans. The humans may have forgotten the last dragon-human war, but the dragons have not. Will the war reveal this hidden world to the humans, or will the clans come together to defeat their enemies and maintain their anonymity?
Danica must gather her allies and help the very dragons she's hidden from her whole life. She can only hope that she'll be strong enough to protect her chosen family.
This is the first book in a new series about dragons who want nothing more than to live in peace, but refuse to be subjugated. In war there's also love, and love is blind. Love doesn't care about gender, race, species (in this case), or sexuality.
Attention: This book contains explicit sexual content between consenting adults. The sexual scenes are MM, MF, and MMF. There are romantic relationships depicted that are MM. There is also a high level of explicit language, snark, kink, and possibly bad puns and fart jokes.
This book ends in a cliffhanger.

I have to admit, I read “Dragons, Michael Ferraiuolo” and that was all I needed to get my attention and quite honestly…I regret nothing! Not even the nail biting, heart stopping, cliff hanging ending in this first book of A. G. Carothers series the “Dragon War Chronicles”.
A. G. Carothers is a fairly new to me author, having only listened to one other audio book by this author that for me ended up being just okay, I ended up not being very excited about things, unlike “Syn Consulting” which has totally left me in a dither of the best kind as I am more than anxious to find out what’s going to happen next to this collection of interesting and unique characters.
Michael Ferraiuolo has been a favorite of mine when it comes to narrators from the first time I heard his voice and in “Syn Consulting” he more than proves why with the range and diversity of the voices that he’s able to provide throughout this story as always his narration was solid and his efforts only added to my enjoyment of the book.
“Syn Consulting” is a step outside of my reading norm, which in many ways is neither here nor there since I like to occasionally challenge myself with it comes to my reading choices. The part that’s unusual is that there is a m/f relationship at the center of this story and for those who don’t like to have their MCs involved with others you might not find this one to your liking so, I’m not saying don’t read/listen to it but I am advising caution if any of this is a deal breaker for you. As far as the relationship dynamics go…all I can really say is everything is early days for this story. From the relationship between Danica and Zander to the relationships between Danica and/or Zander and the rest of their found family.
