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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
KMac did a fantastic job with the first Light Dragons tale, making anti-hero Baltic into a die-hard romantic hero, so I was very excited when I found out that we'd be seeing more of his and Ysolde/Tully's HEA. This book takes place only a few weeks after the first ends...and is quite funny, but seemed a little messy and hit-and-miss, and I'm not sure if it really needed to be written, though the Dragons books by KMac are pretty much a dead cert.

In this, we find Ysolde, Brom and Baltic settling into their third new house in as many months and Ysolde starting to have her visions again, yet her magic is still off. She and Baltic are still considered ouroboros and Baltic is still accused of killing the Blue dragons, but Ysolde is determined to prove his innocence, as well as recover more of her memories and her magic. The tale has lots of visions from days of old, including Ysolde dying and being reborn and snaps of her old life with Baltic. Oh, and there are quite a few pretty hot and descriptive sex scenes - not quite erotica, but certainly sensual and descriptive!!

That's about it. It is a funny tale, mainly due to the physical fighting between Drake, Kostya (who has been dumped by Cyrene in favour of Neptune), Gabriel and Baltic, who then come across as little diddums who need to be patched up by their mates and have their boubous kissed better, and due to Jim being transformed many times into a naked human male obsessed with his package and with not being able to nibble Cecile's furry ears whilst in human form. But what does it add to the series, if indeed there will be a Light dragons series? Not much. Yes, Ysolde is determined to exonerate her mate, but there's a lot of scheming and yet very little is achieved.

I really struggled with which star rating I should give this book because I am really eager to see how the dragon world progresses but there were some major annoyances in this book.

The first being the "I'm a dragon so I don't have to tell you anything". Ok so we know this is typical dragon behaviour and they don't like to explain themselves but it did get a bit beyond a joke in this book. It got to the point that it seemed the only reason baltic wasn't giving things away was just so the plot could be delayed a little so that the book could be bulked out a bit. The second being where the plot is heading is so blatantly obvious you want to slap baltic for apparently being naive and ysolde for not punching him and making him listen to her. And the third, and this kills me to say this, my beloved effrijim. I love jim but he was like a completely different demon in this book. Gone was his cutting jibes and sarcasm (there was a little but not as much in previous books), and instead was this whiny dramatic shadow. Yes it's because he's stuck in human form but it just seemed to be constant over the top outrage that had me wanting to just skip the dialogue.

There is one big massive positive to this book and that is that that Cyrene is absent huzzah! She only makes a brief appearance and I could actually tolerate her. Don't get me wrong, I will get the next installment because I want to see what happens next and how the dragon series is going to move on; but I feel the plot was pretty thin in this one and probably could've been joined with the next installment. It's not a bad book, but I feel the silver and light dragon series have just been no match for the original aisling grey series. However it's a good afternoon read and you will still get engrossed in it.

Ysolde Bouchier has returned in Katie Macaliser's second Light Dragons novel (or ninth Dragon novel series)with just as many obstacles to face as ever. In the last book she renewed her relationship with Baltic after centuries of separation. Due to her memory being erased and only coming back in pieces, she still has a lot to catch up on. Baltic is helping her but he is still holding a lot back (as dragons tend to do). Some information she needs is vital, but his desire to protect her makes for some frustrations between them. To make matters worse, they are still ouroboros from the weyr and at war with them. It wouldn't be so bad if Ysolde hadn't become such good friends with some of the women in the weyr. Not only this but she feels the severed connection from the dragon community deeply. Her mate Baltic, on the other hand, has no desire to work things out and is happy to keep their sept apart.

Of course, Ysolde is not going to accept the status quo. She has much to do if there is to be any chance at a normal and happy life. Among her priorities include clearing Baltic's name for crimes he was accused of, getting the interdiction lifted that is preventing her use of magic, solving a few new mysteries that come up along the way (along with some of the old), and getting the Light Dragon sept reinstated into the weyr. Along the way she has help from friends, even those that shouldn't be helping and she also acquires new enemies. There is nothing simple or uncomplicated in this woman's life.

This is not a novel that can stand alone. It is possible to start with the novel prior to this one and feel comfortable (which is what I inadvertently did), but this one is all about continuing to deal with issues that arose earlier in the series.
