Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am a big Katie fan - usually. And not only the dragon genre either. I have to say this was not her best work, at all.The story dragged and I had to fight myself not to just scan through to the end and be done with it. I missed her usual humor and character banter, finding it overshadowed by smarmy, overdone sex scenes.Hopefully the next will be better.

May-ling: Doppelganger, Dragon Mate, Demon Consort and now a dragon heart vessel... Oct. 7 2008
By Jessie Potts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Up in Smoke is the second book in the new silver dragon series. It parallels Aisling's novels wonderfully, yet May stands on her own and her story is delightfully funny and completely different. She has to contend with so many people and beings wanting something from her.

The only reason Magoth wants her as a consort is to have access to the mortal world to create mayhem, destruction blah blah blah. Gabriel is fighting to keep May by his side, and all the dragons are trying to figure out who is the real Blue Wyvern Fiat or Bastion, as well as whether or not the Black dragons are their own Sept, and if so what will happen to the Silver Sept who used to be a part of the Black Sept.

As if that wasn't bad Cyrene is convinced she's Kostya's mate, the only reason she can't hold his fire is he isn't officially recognized.... right... and no one wants to break the news to a crazy Naiad who just lost her job as a protector of her spring and lost her common sense in order to create her Doppelganger May. May now has to talk to Neptune (that's right the Roman God) to petition for Cy's job back. Did I mention the one dragon who everyone though Kostya had killed is running around in the shadow world, Baltic.

This story is definitely action packed and a great follow up story. I love Gabriel but every time Aisling and Drake are mentioned I keep my fingers crossed that Katie MacAlister is writing their continued story quickly. All in all I can't wait for the third.

This is book 2. Good story, no resolution yet Oct. 21 2008
By Charity A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed the story and tend to buy any and all of Katie MacAlister's books because they are engaging, humorous and deliciously, sinfully sexy in the male leads.

This is book 2 of the Silver Dragons series (book 1 is Playing with Fire (Silver Dragons, Book 1)). I love the character, May and her sexy Gabriel but I was disappointed that nothing got done in this story. There were several issues to deal with: Magoth and his evil intents that were never brought to light; Cyrene and her poluted "pool"; the mysterious emergence of a dragon in the shadow world; not even Aisling having her baby! I feel like we did a lot of running around without really getting anywhere. I'm still looking forward to the next book, but I think some of my enthusiasm has been regretfully doused.

all smoke, no resolution Jan. 22 2009
By she reads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is book #2 in the 'silver dragons' series, book #6 total if you count the four green dragon/aisling grey novels. This is important to know going in- because if you haven't read up you will probably won't be satisfied.

Ok, so I really like Katie MacAlister's dragon series, and the story of the silver dragons is getting good and interesting. It's fun to see a different perspective and a very different heroine. I like May a lot- I see great things happening in her future in this series. I think.

So here's my problem with this book- there are a lot of plot lines, interesting characters, and great subjects working up... but damn it nothing is resolved. Nothing is completed, finalized, and there's no sense of close of an adventure at the end. This is what I'd call a bridge book. My bet is that #3 in this silver dragon series will rock hard core, and if you're a fan of the series it's worth reading to keep up on all the happenings.

I'm trusting Katie is going somewhere good with all this... guess I'll have to wait and see!

A Struggle to a Poor Finish Dec 30 2008
By Lighthouse Ann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Not as funny or action-packed as the green dragon stories, the silver dragon series seems to drag out the relationship and the sex between our heroes May, doppleganger, dragon-mate, and vessel of the dragon heart shard, and her mate Gabriel, silver dragon wyvern. There's potential for mayhem and conflict with a sideline fight for control of the red dragons, the entre of demon lord and May's consort Magoth back into the modern world, and the mysterious reappearance of a long-dead legendary wyvern. With all this to work with, I was astonished to realize I had turned 20 pages at one point and absolutely nothing happened. I persevered and just started flipping past the pages where May and Gabriel are at it again or trying not to go at it again, hoping for some plot development. And... Drat, the book ends, nothing resolved, clearly a set up for the sequel, making this a paltry, unsatisfying chapter in a larger story. I'm done with this series.

pffft!!!! Jan. 2 2009
By Neker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Not as good as the other series. MacAlister tries to accomplish the same as all the others by having the same type of characters play the same type of parts only with a twin playing the part of the demon dog. The plot was slow and lacking and after reading it I'm not even sure what the main plot was. Apparently, May is stuck with a piece of a demon heart in her and has to retrieve all the pieces if she wants to not be changed into a dragon. I felt like this was thrown in as an afterthought halfway through the novel. I'm not sure if MacAlister even had a plot in mind when she was writing the novel.
