If you like your paranormal romance with a good dose of intrigue but a heap of a lot of fun, then you HAVE to read the dragon books by Katie MacAlister. I do want to point something out. This is book one of the Silver Dragons, however the first series you should read is Aisling Grey, then you can move on to the Silver Dragons. This will help you best enjoy the plot.
Now that being said I will spend a little bit of time on the main couple here. The Wyvern of the silver dragons, Gabriel, is a model looking, sexy and smooth as hell, dreadlocks wearing hunk of a man. He is also a healer. We first met him in the Aisling Grey series where he might’ve done something to not endear him to some of us. However it’s now his turn to find a mate.
Of course, these wyverns can’t find normal mates. There always have to be something special about them. May is a doppleganger, but she is also in the service of a Demon Lord as a, well, thief. Because she has the ability to shadow walk he assigns her the task of stealing for him an ancient dragon relic.
Gabriel and May make an amazing couple and I like them better than Drake and Aisling. They’re so hot together they will burn down the house! Ummmm I meant that literally. Dragon fire can be quite dangerous, so proceed with caution. 😉
Silver dragons, black dragons, green dragons, demon lords, everyone seems to be after this artifact. While May is trying to follow her orders, and deal with her new mate, she might have to avoid capture by the supernatural authorities. And then we come to my favorite part of this book.
Let me introduce you to this little guy right here. His name is Jim! He’s not really a dog, even though that’s the form he prefers, he’s a demon. He’s bound to Aisling but he’s oh so very present in this book as well. For this I am most grateful. This series wouldn’t be the same without him!! This is the guy that will have you cracking up with his one-liners. You will love him!
Be warned there’s a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of this book, no HEA. Their HEA, as it was with Aisling, is over the course of their series. There are only 3 books in the silver dragons, so I won’t have to wait much. ;)Some of Jim’s quotes:
“What’s the silver dragon element? Earth?” Jim’s face screwed up as it thought.
“Ohh man, that means he’s going to want to do it outdoors all the time. Buck naked in the wilderness!! My advice is to take sunscreen and bug spray and maybe a spatula or something, to dig the sand out of your butt crack in case he takes you to the beach.”
“Jim!!! I’m so sorry, it knows better than to offer unwanted sexual advice.”
“You don’t often get to see a wyvern claiming a mate. It’s better than Skinemax. Is there going to be an encore? If there is, can you hold off until I make some popcorn?”
I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
