"Holy Smokes! That was Awesome!"
Aisling Grey, Guardian, Demon lord, Prince of Abbadon, and
wyvern mate is finally going to be made an honest woman by
Drake (her dragon "sweetie"). She will have to overcome a
few things first, of course, since nothing is easy where
she is concerned.
To start off the fun, the Red Sept has not given up its
feud with Aisling, Drake and the Green Sept; they are
causing all kinds of trouble for them. Aisling is trying to
keep all of this and the Otherworld stuff from her human
step-mom and dad, along with her tough Uncle who are in
town for the wedding. Then Drake goes missing on their
Aisling starts being proactive and sets out to find and
rescue Drake; in the process learns a lot more about the
different Dragon Septs and regains some trust for Gabriel.
As always Jim is by her side offering his colorful comments
and whining about food or how he is being treated. Through
all of this the Dark voice in her head won't shut up and
Bael requires something from Aisling that she is not
prepared to give.
What can I say but "Holy Smokes! That was Awesome"! Katie
MacAlister continues to deliver with this fourth
installment in her Aisling Grey Guardian series. Action,
sexy dragons, magic, sarcastic sidekick demon (in a
wonderful Newfie form), Lord of the Underworld, relatives,
a little B & E, a wedding and did I say sexy dragons, all
delivered with her signature humor and style.
What I loved most about this book is that we got to see
Aisling step up to the plate and really figure things out
this time (without getting herself deeper into trouble) and
that the romance is still there between Aisling and Drake.
There is a major amount of closure at the end and I am not
sure if this means there will be no more Aisling books or
not; but do not fear for she has a new book due out in May
also set in this world. I do not know how she keeps coming
up with these great stories but they are golden to me and
they are on my keeper shelf (maybe I have a little dragon
