Fire me up... one of the best books I've ever read!
on 30 July 2006
What can I say? I absolutely LOVE this book! It's funny, sexy, imaginative, has an excellent plot and loads of brilliant characters (both new and old) that I just love. This story follows on directly from "You Slay Me" (the first Aisling Grey novel) which I also loved. You really need to read that one first or this won't make much sense. Even then, there's so much going on it's hard to keep up with it all!
To cut a long story short, in the first book Aisling found out that she is a guardian (keeper of the gates of hell), a wyvern's mate (life partner to the head of a dragon sept... the very sexy Drake (a green dragon in human form)) and inadvertently becomes a demon lord (to the lovely Jim... a "good" demon in doggie form). This book is set in Budapest, where Aisling has come to attend an "otherworld" conference and deliver an amulet to a hermit. Here she bumps into Drake (who she's trying to avoid despite having the major hots for him), gets accused of murder (again) which she tries to solve to clear her name, is inundated by amorous men (and incubi), trys to find a guardian mentor to train her, whilst reluctantly being dragged into dragon politics. All in a days work for our Aisling!
If you like unusual, lighthearted, sexy, romantic, supernatural comedies then give this series a go. I know some people find Aisling a bit annoying, but I rather like her and find her antics endearing, though even I feel like banging her head against a brick wall for continuously walking out on the lovely Drake! I can't wait for the next instalment ("Light My Fire")... bring it on Katie!
