Quick Review: 2 stars (out of 5)
Why I Read It: I’ve read several of her Dragon books
Where I Obtained the Book: At my local library.
Synopsis: When it comes to love, one woman is scaling back her expectations...
Tully Sullivan is just like any other suburban mom-except she's just woken up in a strange place surrounded by strange people who keep insisting that they're dragons-and that she's one too.
Review: This is about the light dragons and a big twist when you discover who one of the guards really is. Lots of lovin' and dragon stuff. Drake and Ashling are mentioned a few times and a war, of course, is about to start. It pushes the story ahead, not one of my favorites.
I have to say that this is not a step in the series I think I will continue to follow. *Spoiler Alert* It is interesting how someone dead for so long is suddenly alive and has no memory of her life before and not much now. The big battle is going to be about the ruling of the septs. If you want to read her Dragon books start with the Ashling Gray stories, but lots of lovin’ warning. Drake is a control freak, but you’ve got to love him for that.
Author Biography: 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 followed during the years after Noble's publication. 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, and for the mystery world as Kate Marsh.
Katie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and dogs, and can often be found lurking around online.
