The Unbearable Lightness of Dragons (Light Dragons #2)
Full review will be posted in Affaire de Coeur magazine: http://affairedecoeur.com.
This is straight fluff reading & it makes my heart feel good. If your not into over-the-top love, hot, manly, arrogant but absolutely devoted to their women, man/dragons, & women who are strong, obvious know better than their stubborn males, & have amazing talents of their own, then this isn't a book for you. Oh! Let's don't forget the smart mouthed, sex obsessed, laugh inducing, low level demon in dog form (well, m ...more
Essentially I got this -
Baltic and mate got kicked out of weir. Ysolde wants back in, even though she really only had a very brief introduction to the club, in which they tried her for murders Baltic had been accused of. But ya know, she bonded with the girls when she was there for five minutes, and now she wuvs them and wants to hang out with them again.
So eve ...more
While not quite as humorous as the first in the Light Dragons series, this second book is quite funny but has much more intrigue and is much sexier (caramel is involved at one point and handcuffs at another - puuuurrrrrrr). Sexy alpha dragons, edicts from a quasi-god, rescues, a kidnapping attempt, a resurrection, a summoning, more visions, betrayal and serious romance - they may be arrogant bull-headed alpha males but they do romanc ...more
The most interesting part of this book for me were the last couple of chapters. Everything started to pick up and things actuall ...more
This is the ressurected (sp) from death story of the Black dragon Baltic & his half dragon mate Ysolde who are at war with the other dragon septs (Blue, Red, Green & Silver). Really it's by name only & all the wives are friends.
Baltic Is accused of dkilling a mass of blue dragons & other crimes he didn't commit & Ysolde has 3 things she has to do for 3 different people to restore ...more
Ysolde has been raised from the dead with a severe memory loss, that she's slowly recovering. Her husband Baltic has also been raised from the dead. Baltic has also been accused of several acts of violence and murder that he says that he did not commit. Ysolde is bound and determined that she's going to get to the bottom of this no matter what the outcome is. She wants th ...more
Als erst einmal muss ich sagen, ich bin mit gemischten Gefühlen an das Buch gegangen. Ich hatte bereits eine Rezension im LoveLetter (Literaturzeitschrift) gelesen, die davon sprach, dass in diesem Band kaum etwas passiert. Also ich kann das nicht bestätigen und frage mich ob die Rezensentin dann bei der Silver Dragon Reihe eingeschlafen ist. Die war nämlich wirklich etwas langatmig und stellenweise langweilig. Aber ich bin ja kein Maß für das Spannungsempfinden und es zeigte mir nur w ...more
Other than that, he's demanding, both emotionally and sexually, and constantly mocks and belittles his mate for her sexual preferences and not living up to the ideal image of her that is three hundred years out of date. She spends the entire time making cow eyes at her insufferable man, "melting with love" at every turn without any discernible prom ...more
Ususally in reading, if there is too much thought or narration, I find my self skimming down the page looking for conversation to break it up. But this one was ALL conversation, and some being quite long-winded for the first quarter of the book. So this time i ...more
The whole story in this book could have probably been pressed into 3 to 5 chapters, which would have been sufficient to explain the continuing storyline as it is.
We didn't learn much about the story itself and we didn't even get a lot of character ...more
Jim as always...with his whining about demon abuse and food, made me laugh....though im not sure it was as much as he normally does!
Poor Kostya! after Baltic he's my sweetie too. i was never a Cyrene fan....but not i really do hate her. hopefully since she's no a true mate...something can do done for Kost ...more
The second book of the Light Dragon series, this book was difficult to read. I found myself wondering when I would get to the good part. The secondary characters (those from the initial dragon books) made the book more palatable with the usual humor and characteristics that made me love Katie Mac.
The story seemed to unfold in the last two or three chapters. Most ...more

Ysolde Bouchier is still coming to terms with the dragon part of her, while at the same time trying to free a friend of Baltic-her Black Dragon lover-from the weyr, get Baltic to meet with the dragons who want him dead, rescue a half-dragon damsel in over her head, raise the shade of the man everyone says killed her, and once and for all clear Baltic's name of the murder charges that continue to plague him.
