"Katie works her magic again!"
Well, Katie Mac is at it again. What do they feed her? I
don't know of any writer who is as prolific or as much fun.
Humor is hard to write, harder for reader to often catch.
What has one person laughing hysterically, will see another
stone-faced. Well, a few get stone-faced when they read
Katie Macalister. They complains about the story line being
unbelievable or a farce. Well, not for one moment do I
think Ms. Macalister every expected anyone to take her
books serious. She wants you to read for simple pleasure
and to laugh till your ribs hurt. As usual, Katie Mac
delivers with both - simple pleasures and laughing till
your ribs hurt. People can huff and say I won't buy her
again because she is silly. Well, guess what, we do buy her
for that very reason. She is a FUN read. Period. She is not
offering earthshaking discussions on the perils of life.
She is taking you an a rollercoaster ride into - well, who
knows where she will take us next! I always arrive at the
end feeling happy for having enjoyed myself so!
I utterly adored Aisling Grey in You Slay Me. I mean who
would not adore her boyfriend Drake who is a dragon...hum
wyvern? I think that Drake is a dragon...hum...wyvern was a
clue the book was not going to be serious! The next in the
series of dragon tales...wyvern tales...sees Aisling
fulfilling her role as Guardian. It's not easy being a
person suddenly in charge of portals straight to Hell. With
these new demanding chores for her Guardian role, she
thinks it wise to bone up and decides to check up on the
necessary skills by checking in to a Guardian convention
held in Budapest (and here we thought it was just another
Trekkie...hum..Trekker gathering!). Her former job was
curious for her uncle, what landed her in the lap of Drake
in the first tale. Since she is heading in the right
direction she agrees to courier another item of antiquity.
Okay, Aisling, didn't you learn about this in You Slay Me?
The romance between Drake Vireo and Aisling is still in WIP
stage, since this book follows only a month after You Slay
Me. Drake for those who missed the first book (Go read the
first book!!!) is the leader of the Green Dragons. However
sexy Drake is in, whether in Dragon form or human form,
Aisling is till adjusting to the idea of having a
dragon...hum...wyvern for a steady beau.
There are various things causing the road to romance to be
bumpy, such as thieves other's of Drakes Ilk on the prowl,
murder and mayhem.
There are more books in the Aisling series coming, though
not as fast as Katie Mac usually puts them out. Hey, ease
up people. The woman has been doing a book a month (well,
all most) for nearly two years. Let her have a well earned
I will be there waiting for more wyvern tales when they
arrive. This made the New York Times Best Sellers list. It
only shows the popularity of this fascinating and fun

An Aisling Grey, Guardian Novel
I'm Aisling Grey, and apparently I'm irresistible...
Being quite the novice Guardian/Keeper of the Gates to Hell, I decided to get in touch with my otherworldly self by attending a convention of supernatural beings in Budapest. For my other career as a courier (with a somewhat tarnished reputation), I have to deliver a priceless amulet to a hermit, much to the amusement of Jim, my wise-cracking fury Newfoundland demon. He should be happy that I was able to squeak through customs with a talking dog...
And guess who just happens to be staying at the same hotel as I am? Drake. You remember him. The Wyvern of the Green Dragons? My so-called "mate?" The man who literally fires me up, and makes me act like a love-struck schoolgirl? That Drake. Meanwhile, mortal men are falling at my feet. I don't know if it's the Hungarian air or what, but it's downright embarrassing. All I want to do is find a Guardian mentor to help me control my powers. Should be easy—except that every Guardian I meet with winds up dead. I'm starting to get a complex...
