Review for Dragon Soul by Katie MacAlister - 5 out of 5 stars!
SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS -
NOTHING BURNS HOTTER . . .
Sophea Long knows that escorting her octogenarian client to Europe will be an adventure. Mrs. P has a habit of stealing anything shiny, and the former "hoochikoo dancer" is a lot faster than she looks. But Sophea hadn't counted on Mrs. P leading her right into the arms of a smoldering, dark-haired stranger who kisses like a dream. If only he'd give up all this nonsense about Sophea being some kind of dragon...
THAN THE FIRE INSIDE
There's a reason Rowan Dakar is known as the Dragon Breaker. The last thing he needs is to fall for a woman who literally sets him aflame every time they kiss. After all, he has a mission-one that will finally free him of dragonkin for good. He can't afford to be distracted by the funniest, most desirable woman he's ever set eyes on. But no prophecy in the world can ever stop true love . . .
MY REVIEW -
I really enjoy Katie MacAlister's books! I've read a lot of them, and I always enjoy the kooky humor and the unique situations the characters find themselves in. I've read all the dragon books, and I think that helps because there are some of the previous characters that make appearances through out the whole series, and there are some storylines that continue through multiple books, so I would recommend reading from the beginning, or at least for Dragon Soul, it would be good to read the previous 2 books in this series because there is a continued storyline, but it isn't absolutely necessary since 2 different characters are the main focus of each of the books.
Dragon Soul was lots fun and a great addition to the series! I liked that the characters traveled to a few different places; especially the "cruise", and that each of them were on a quest of sorts, and I enjoyed the hijinks of Mrs. P. All of the characters are weird and kooky, and it is lots of fun reading about them. I'm never bored because there is always something interesting going on. Sophea and Rowan are the focus couple of Dragon Soul, and both are in for lots of changes in their lives. Sophea is escorting Mrs.P to a cruise taking off in Egypt from the U.S., but little does she knows that there is more to Mrs. P then she thinks, and there are also things she doesn't know about herself, and along the way, Sophea meets Rowan, who ends up helping out with some tough situations. Sophea finds Rowan attractive, but she is also weary of his intentions. Rowan is an alchemist, and he is on a quest to find a magical ring before it can fall into the hands of an evil demon lord. Rowan is on the outs with the dragons because some dragons were killed when he was trying to break the magic on an object, so he is obligated to help the dragons or he will lose his life. Rowan believes Mrs. P has the ring, and that Sophea has nefarious reason for being with Mrs. P, but as he gets to know Sophea, he begins to question how he feels towards Sophea. I enjoyed how Sophea and Rowan's relationship unfolds; they are really sweet with each other, and I found the changes they go through interesting. There are fun scenes through out the whole book, and I thought the battle scenes were fun; those demons are bad fighters! I also love the ending! It was lots of fun, and I like how all the characters are brought together!
I will definitely read more books by Katie MacAlister; especially about her dragons and vampires!
