Aisling Grey is juggling being a demon lord, a Guardian, and a wyvern's mate, even though she's keeping her distance from said wyvern, Drake, these days. But her presence is still required at a meeting of the green dragons. Since several attempts have been made on her life, Drake is sure to get protective of her.

I'm hoping there will be more of a personal connection with Drake in this one. I feel that I'm not getting enough info about him to really connect w/ him as a hero. Plus, I can't stand how he calls her "mate" and orders here around all the time. ***spoiler alert*** I KNEW that there was something otherworldly about taxi-driver Rene! I think Aisling can be a bit obtuse sometimes.

Well, I did end up liking Drake more in this one, but I still feel a disconnect. Aisling can tell us all she likes that

Book 3 in Katie MacAlister's Aisling Grey Guardian series (contemporary paranormal romance). This was a big step up from book 2 of the series. The plot was much more intricate with an insane number of challenges for Aisling to overcome:
Drake returns to Aisling's life and they attempt to come to a compromise they can both live with to stay together;
Her demon dog eats the king of the imps and the imps want Aisling's head;
There's a war brewing between the red and green dragons that lead to several

Actual rating 3 stars , But an extra one because I feel some sort of loyalty towards this series

I enjoyed reading this book , Katie MacAlister's writing style is amazing but I feel in this book of the Aisling Grey series she shoved in all sorts of plots ....Too many ,Too many sub plots and so many things happening at once .

I Understand that Aisling's life as a guardian is not easy and the constant dangers that keep popping in the story intrigued me to a certain extent but then they started mak

A complete comedy of errors. Aisling bungles her way through one terrible event after another. But really by book three she shouldn't be allowed to use ignorance as an excuse anymore.

Still quite amusing when I could ignore the utter stupidity of some choices made.

Would be up for reading the next. Just have to resign myself that ignorance will always be the excuse. ~sigh~

Another great addition to this series! I am glad where things went with Drake. About time that guy got a clue. Jim as always quite a character. I just wish that things would turn around for Aisling. :)

I am loving these books, but why can't I have this cover:



I am enjoy a good look-and-drool and this cover would have helped me greatly, look at the gorgeous and manly man chest, oh well moving on....the book! Once again, Aisling get's into more crap then you can shake a stick at, problem number one: Jim ate the Imp King; problem number two: Drake is a right bastard who betrayed her trust; Problem number 3: a Prince of Hell is trying to coerce her into helping him; Problem number 4: the red dragon

It's ridiculous how much I became addicted to this series and yes, it's far from perfect and a little bit problematic at some points but to be honest:

Book #3 in the Aisling Grey, Guardian novels. Now Aisling is in London about to start her training as a Guardian with her mentor Nora. But things are never easy and her recent past catches up with her - her mate Drake is in town, and war has started between the green and red septs. Also someone is trying to kill Aisling and people keep trying to get her to agree to support them as either Venediger or Prince of Abbaddon. This felt like a snack - not really a full meal, very easy and fast to consu ...more

So here we join Aisling, a guardian, Wyverns mate, and a demon Lord, in London looking to get into training as a guardian. She is looking for a new start, away from her mate, Drake - a Dragon- and a simple easy life.

Needless to say, the simple life is never for Aisling.

Is it just me, or does everyone want Aisling dead?!

Imps, Dragons, Fates, Guardians, Demons, Demon Lords.. oh my! I loved that there were some creature in this novel that I haven't seen in any other books. It gives it a sense of

Yay, Aisling's back! This time, she's in beautiful London, England. She's been accepted as an apprentice, and is looking forward to beginning her studies towards becoming a Guardian. Only problem? Just about everyone is out for her head.

No, really. This book does feature lots of politics (of the dragon-, Guardian- and demon variety), but each and every instance of it revolves around someone trying to do away with her, literally and figuratively.

It's always fun to follow Aisling and Drake's relat

Whew! This book is really a page-turner. A lot of things happened in this book but still, the author managed to maintain its light atmosphere. The plot was laid well (I was never confused when I read it, and A LOT happened), and will make you want to finish the entire series nonstop. Aisling's suspicion about Rene being other than plain human is true (his Daimon or Fate), which is just about time that we know, yes?. The bed scenes are more intense (the ice cubes!). I am so in love with despicabl ...more

This book had some humor, it was entertaining, and Drake was just amusing, “I was intending to, but you took the conversation in a direction I had not anticipated,” he answered, glancing down to my stomach.." his mother irritated the hell out of me like I just wanted to punch her every time she opened her mouth, I was surprised Drake didn't because telling her off just did not work, “for Christ’s sake, Mother! I have mated with a mortal woman, not a goat! There is no disgrace in Aisling being hu ...more

Another great installment! Once again Jim had me lol'ing throughout the book. I think this one takes the cake for how much trouble Aisling can get into. I know she's never going to catch a break but jeez she never got out of trouble this one. Drake finally made me not want to kill him at times in this one too. Jim steals the show in this series, he's like the dark brother to Oberon. I absolutely love him.

Hmm...my friends and people I follow liked this more than I did. I don't know, it seems like weird plot turns came from nowhere to increase the stakes for Aisling...and she is annoying me...so, after letting it sit for several weeks with ~ 1/4 of the book left, I'm adding it to the haven't finished (and probably won't) shelf.

OMG I swear Aisling is a magnet for disaster, everywhere this chicks goes trouble follows. Love to see that Drake is opening up himself to her, and their relationship is getting stronger. I swear I want a demon dog like Jim lol, he makes this book 20x better.Finally we know what Renee is!!!!!! Would recommend this series to anyone looking for an easy funny read!!!

I probably shouldn't have read this out of order. However after reading this one, I've determined that Ms. MacAlister is not the author for me. This book is fine. It's not bad. It's quirky and I just don't really like the character - Aisling. She does nothing for me. She kind of aggravates me. I tried it. Not going to read the previous two or any others in this series.

These are fun and all, but I could stop right now and not worry. I'm not addicted, I don't need to know what happens next. They're too out there for me, and way too many things go on that I can't always keep up with. Not a waste of time or anything, but not a must-read.

An excellent third book in the series I must say so. Aisling is still struggling against dragons, fellow demon lords, and her temptation for the dark arts. We see more development between her and Drake, which is what we've all been looking for. However, the man is as frustrating as ever. But what if her has some competition over Aisling, hmm?

I loved the other two books starring Aisling; I highly recommend other titles by Katie all the time, especially "The Corset Diaries" (a strict romance, no paranormal anything, and wonderful!) I finished up LMF last night and was just dumbfounded. I'm not even going to try to sum up the plot - I'm not entirely sure there was one, to be honest.

If you're not familiar with this series, trust me, this is NOT the book to start with. Go back and read the first two, "Fire Me Up" and "You Slay Me". Those

Katie, Katie, Katie, what am I going to do with you?
The beginning of this book was the most predictable thing ever, and when I say beginning I mean the first 200 pages, it felt like a copy of the other two books. Repetitive elements include:

- Aisling making a stupid intro comment and Jim being sarcastic
- SURPRISE! Rene's here, apparently out of nowhere! Oh, I'm sure everyone was oh so surprised at this SURPRISING event!
- DOUBLE SURPRISE! Drake is here.. and wait a minute...yes! Out of Nowhere! A

Tons of Suspense - My Favorite in This Series So Far, December 6, 2008
This is not a stand-alone book, so be sure to read "You Slay Me" and "All Fired Up" first. I listened to the audio version of this book and Barbara Rosenblat gives a another stellar performance telling this fun, witty and suspensful story.

Aisling Gray moves to London with her demon sidekick Jim, to be the guardian apprentice of her friend Nora. Once again, she is joined by her "taxi driver" Rene and of course, her "mate" Drak

This is the third book in the Aisling Grey Guardian series by Katie MacAlister. I thought that this book was much better than the second book and much more on par with the first book.

Aisling is moving to London to start her Guardian training with Nora. Once again right from the beginning things start going wrong. She finds out Nora is being called in for questioning which could lead to Nora losing her rights to mentor Aisling. Then on her first outing with Nora; Jim eats the imp king. Now the im

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 dialo ...more
