Book Description

13 May 2010 Silver Dragons 3

May Northcott is at the end of her tether. Her demon boss has moved in and is making life hell. Her scorching hot dragon lover seems to think everything can be solved with a fiery kiss. And worse still, she's being shadowed by her ditsy twin sister - a naiad who simply can't seem to stay out of trouble.

The arrival of a nearly-dead man on May's doorstep could be the final spark that sets light to their tinder-box world. And with dragon war imminent, it's looking increasingly like it will be up to May (and her watery shadow) to stop it before the fire consumes them all, and their lives end up in smoke . . .

More About the Author

For as long as she can remember, Katie MacAlister has loved reading. Growing up in a family where a weekly visit to the library was a given, Katie spent much of her time with her nose buried in a book. Despite her love for novels, she didn't think of writing them until she was contracted to write a non-fiction book about software. Since her editor refused to allow her to include either witty dialogue or love scenes in the software book, Katie swiftly resolved to switch to fiction, where she could indulge in world building, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes.

Two years after she started writing novels, Katie sold her first romance, Noble Intentions. More than thirty books later, her novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and placed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. She also writes for the young adult audience as Katie Maxwell.

Katie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and dogs, and can often be found lurking around online.

Review

'Smart, sexy and funny - Katie delivers!' (Christine Feehan on FIRE ME UP)

MacAlister continues her delectable contemporary paranormal series with another sinfully sexy, fabulously fun tale of love, vampires, ghosts, and demons (Booklist on SEX AND THE SINGLE VAMPIRE)

'Horror romance readers will enjoy this one-bite sitting teeth in cheek (and neck) tale.' (Midwest Book Review on SEX AND THE SINGLE VAMPIRE)

'With its superb characterization and writing that manages to be both sexy and humorous, this contempary paranormal love story is an absolute delight.' (Booklist starred review for A GIRL'S GUIDE TO VAMPIRES)

'A book rich with humor, loaded with sexual tension, and packed with interesting, if sometimes slightly off-beat, characters.' (Romance Reviews Today on A GIRL'S GUIDE TO VAMPIRES)

Book Description

A funny and very sexy paranormal romance in the vein of MaryJanice Davidson from one of America's fastest growing authors.

Format:Paperback
This series has really taken me by surprise. From the blurb and cover it looks like any other generic teenage fantasy series, but it's actually really worth a read. It's complex, very funny in places and has a brilliant and original storyline. The characters are fantastic and I was very sad to finish the series and not have any more books! I would recommend this for anyone with a sense of humour and a fondness for originality. Try it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Continuation BUT 20 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is good to see a series continue to be a good as the first dew books. And I enjoyed seeing Aisling again.
However I did give it 4 not 5 stars, because it felt a bit like the end of a TV series with the cliff hanger to make you want the next one, and whilst I don't have a problem in theory with that, I felt like I had too many new questions at the end of this, and no answers to the questions already raised.

But overall an excellent book, would reccomend to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars 3rd book in series - greatest read 14 April 2014
By HJ
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This the 3rd book in the Silver Dragon series and I found this the most gripping, May's life is getting complicated, which means this book has more to keep your interest, sexy dragon lover, bad guy demon boss and a very wild twin sister, and also brings in the other dragon seats.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hummmmmmmmmmm 6 Nov 2009
By Jessie Potts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I don't think it's Katie MacAlister's fault. I don't think it's Laura Leigh's fault, I don't think it's any of the authors' faults for putting out greyed out books. I think it's the publishers pushing these in demand, best selling authors too hard and too fast. I find that Alexandra Ivy's new book was just like Heat Seeker, and now like Me and My Shadow. The books are good, they are decent, but unfortunately fans have come to expect that moment of awe, that first time opening You Slay Me or Dangerous Games. We just demand that fresh, plot filled, character developed book.

Me and My Shadow was about May and Gabriel. Aisling is also about to give birth so she gives May full 'custody' over Jim (you know sixth level demon dog). Magoth is still hanging around trying to seduce May, though it's pointless because of the curse, and generally getting in everyone's way. May now has a shard of the Dragon's Heart in her which apparently is giving her grief. First she finds herself attracted to Magoth... no no! not Magoth! Just the dark power he represents! It's odd it's like May has changed her personality a bit. I mean the first book Playing with Fire was hilarious. Gabriel couldn't mate with her, May's got all these cool doppelganger powers, and her twin is causing grief with out her common sense. The interactions between all the characters were fresh and sarcastic. Now however if feels like all the characters are just playing a role. The way they bicker back and forth has lost some of it's glow and has begun to dull down.

Besides that there are part of the plot that drags on, where other times it is glossed over. However the book is paperback price and does retain some of MacAlister's old sarcastic charm. Drake's mother was a little too sarcastic in the fact that she tried too hard. May was no longer a calm influence, the Shard made her act all 'dragony' (her words not mine) and Drake was more than overprotective, it was like they were all acting. I Must confess though that there were parts of the book that did have me laughing and almost resurrected (haha Catlina) the old spark back. We are left with another cliff hanger that MacAlister so loves, and an excerpt from a new Dragon series.... The Light Dragons.... It's worth paperback price.. worth your time? Only you can deduce that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dragon-Palooza 10 Feb 2010
By Jedibarrister - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Silver dragons fighting blue dragons with black, red and green dragons! It's
dragon-palooza. But while Drake could barely shift 20% (and only if Aisling put on the chase), and we never saw Pal or Istvan shift at all, it seems the rest of the dragons in other septs can fully shift to dragon. And May, with the dragon heart shard embedded in her chest, also has the ability now. She continues to struggle to keep herself and keep the shard from consuming her.

So Baltic, resurrected with the von Enders light sword, ability to use arcane
magic, and enter the shadow world is throwing folks into turmoil. He wants to
unite the shards and take over the weyr. He also wants his mate Ysolde the last
holder of the shard May keeps. In his mind, that is the last connection to
Ysolde and if May has it, he must have May.

In the midst of this, Magoth is causing his usual brand of ex-demon lord mayhem,
Bael hands Magoth's power to an unlikely person who hands it off to an even more
unlikely person, Sally shows her true colors which aren't as evil as one might
think, Kostya and Cyrene continue to hash out their personal issues in public and Drake's going nuts since Aisling is close to delivering (which she does during the major battle). The best part was Jim in human form...ha!

I really enjoyed the green dragon story with Aisling's voice. The silver dragon
tale wasn't as great since I never really found that I liked May too much. Where Aisling slowly warmed up to Drake and gave us the opportunity to fall in love with him too, May and Gabriel were too immediate. May's feelings for Gabriel were an anvil to the head too often. And of course, the cliff-hanger at the end was unlikely...you'd think that someone other than Kaawa would've recognized Tully as a dragon let alone THAT dragon. The next series is the Light Dragons...which didn't seemingly exist but perhaps it explains Baltic's strange powers.

3.0 out of 5 stars gotta be honest 13 Jan 2010
By Valerie B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
this one did not hit it out of the park for me. was it rushed? *shrug* was not enough time devoted because Ms. MacAlister has another new series (highlander travel//or futuristic something-or-other)? *no idea* was every book before this character development of May and we finally see her true being, (as suggested)and was i annoyed at the huge change in May? *seems like*

will I buy the next. Not every author can wow us readers every single time. Previsously all the books in this series were greatly enjoyed. Yes, I will be purchasing the next book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Demons and Dragons 25 Feb 2010
By Lcookie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I will have to disagree with some of the comments. And yes publishing houses are demanding that authors churn out book like bakery loads. More than 1 book per year, max two is too much, and although most of these books are less than 300 pages long, a slower pace could bring quality back.
I actually liked "Me and my Shadow" for the very reasons others disliked it. These series was less about romance and more about relations, transformation, humor, fantasy and action falling in a different genre.
In this last book May further transforms from the shadow slave into a free individual on her own. The love/attraction for the Dragon Gabriel grew, "humanized" May, and empowered her to seek her individuality, no longer satisfied with just being a shadow. Even if the motives of neither Gabriel nor May to get initially together were not honest, their relationship and love was born from the initial lust and the selfish Gabriel's motives. Gabriel gave her what she wanted most: to be cherished and loved for what she was, and for what she became. The shard that she feared was the most surprising of all. The sex scenes did not lack humor or steam, and for sure did not lack imagination. Wow!
The fact we get to see some more of prior characters make it even more appealing. We see the circle expand and we are able to visit with old friends and meet new ones. i.e. Ash and Drake and future family, we meet new players, and solve old riddles and are presented with new ones. Black is grey, and white is tan.
Magoth, the now ex- demon lord with his incredible arrogance, conceit and other bad traits keeps things going and fresh. He is the man-demon-thing who cannot take no for an answer, who might lost most of his status and power but not an ounce of conceit or evil, and whose actions always elicit a good laugh. Without May`s inner struggle with her unwelcomed Magoth's ongoing sexual attraction, the story would have been less real a and not so funny. Jim, the demon dog, whose wry humor kept me laughing, should be a guest in books to come. He is one of the best side kicks ever: doggie, cute, sassy, a bit crass and with just enough evil to make him even more likeable. His comments are just too sweet, wicked and to the point...Ouch!!, and he just cannot keep his mouth shut. But best of all, he just loves being a dog and wants to stay as one.
As for the ending was not bad while it gave us some closure it presented new possibilities, and why not? Waiting can be fun too.

Ms. Macalister's new direction in writing, one that might diverge from heavy romance while not ignoring it completely, targets a wider audience, one who wants fantasy, action and romance and more in the books they buy. Ms. Macalister follows a less traveled path; one that is being tested by other writers with some success and is developing into a genre of its own. It is an intelligent mix of noir, fantasy, steampunk, action, and with characters who are complex and flawed, less predictable, harder and tougher, heroines that reinvent their selves into newer, darker, tougher models, and that are not afraid to love while keeping their individuality.
