“Dammit, Jim, I’m a Guardian, not a doctor!” (276). I giggled, I laughed, I snorted, I sighed, I blushed, and then looked around to be sure nobody was reading over my shoulder (or paying any attention to my craziness). I enjoyed the story, and couldn’t put it down. I kept reading and reading and couldn’t wait to get to the next page.
Aisling Grey, Guardian, Wyvern’s Mate, Demon Lord, packs up and goes to a convention. Not just any convention, but GODTAM, a convention for the denizens of the Otherworld. Her goal: to find a mentor who can show her the ropes, and teach her to be a good Guardian. Unfortunately, Aisling is in for more than she bargained for.
Rene is conveniently in Budapest, to help Aisling out. Drake is, as well, and he’s after Aisling with a vengeance. He will claim her, and she will be his forever. Meanwhile, there is GODTAM going on, tons of Incubi, an amulet which Aisling is meant to deliver, and a Dragon summit. All in Budapest, and much of it related directly to Aisling.
Suddenly, Guardians Aisling meets with begin turning up dead, and all eyes point to her. The only way to avoid execution or expulsion from the Otherworld is to find the real murderer and bring them to justice, but is Aisling up to it? (Of course she is)
The Quick Version:
Katie MacAlister may not do drama well, but she sure does humor and paranormal romance. I was laughing at nearly every page, wondering what would happen next, and enjoying every moment. The biggest drawback is Aisling herself; she doesn’t listen to herself, and doesn’t seem to learn from past experiences. This book gets a 4 out of 5.
