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 giv

Dragon Soul is a flat out fabulous fun, brilliantly witty and all around fantastic romance.

Sofea Long husband dies almost as soon as her marriage began. She never found out that she was mated to the last Red Dragon…making her a Red Dragon herself.

Sofea is hired to chaperon a very elderly and “slightly” eccentric woman, Mrs Papadopoulous (Mrs. P.) to her cruise down the Nile. Unbeknownst to Sofea, the cruise is to the Duat, the Egyptian Underworld and the only one standing between Mrs. P and damn
Talk about a mood enhancer! Dragon Soul by Katie MacAlister was like a breath of fresh air at a warm and sunny beach after being cooped up all winter. A devilish blend of passion, action, danger and humor, I was hooked from the start!

Take one quirky, offbeat heroine on a mission to protect a little old lady who is the queen of cougars, for sure! Tons of sexual innuendo, not to mention some real, flaming dragon heat passion and did I mention the hotter than heck hero? Add a cast of Who’s Who for

Dragon Soul is book three in the Dragon Falls series by Katie MacAlister.

I love Katie MacAlister’s dragons. They are just so much fun and the humor she brings into the story keeps things from getting dull. I fell in love with MacAlister’s dragons when I picked up You Slay Me (Aisling Grey #1), which is the very first dragon book featuring the Green Dragons. After that I was hooked.

Do you need to read all the dragon books, no, but we get appearances from many of the previous characters & couples

Oh I love MacAlister's dragons. Outrageous, cheeky, and charming.

The Gist: Sophea's been hired to escort an elderly lady to Egypt where she's catching a cruise. Problem is...said elderly lady is a klepto, maybe on the run from demons and an all around handful. Sophea's formerly sane life has taken a nose dive into crazytown complete with an oh so lickable stranger named Rowan who quite possibly has nefariou

What do you do when you are newly widowed, nearly broke and have a desire to find the next new thing in your life? Take on a position as companion to an elderly woman destined to head to Egypt and cruise the Nile. So perhaps all of us aren’t so lucky to fall into that opportunity, but maybe luck had very little to do with it. At least, that’s Sophea’s take after discovering just HOW difficult and confusing this new position really is.

Dragon Soul is book 3 in the Black Dragons series by Katie MacAlister but is my first book by this author. It was the synopsis that drew my attention to the story – it sounded like an interesting and fun premise and I’m happy to say that it exceeded my expectations and was a really delightful read.

In this story, Sophea’s been hired (by a man claiming to be a relative of her late husband Jian) to escort an elderly woman on a cruise in Egypt, with a quick stop in Munich along the way. Her client’s

If you follow my reviews, you know that I am just gaga for Katie MacAlister and her dragons. They are such fun reads. If you are in a serious mood or feeling extra logical, then pass these by until you are ready to have some slapstick fun.

This book starts off a bit differently in that our hero is not a dragon! Roman Dakar is the brother of Aiofe and Bea from the earlier books of the series, and he is known as the Dragon Breaker. After accidentally wiping out the Red Dragon sept, Rowan has been

DRAGON SOUL is a laugh out loud, absolutely entertaining madcap blend of adventure, passion and humor with a scatterbrained heroine, an intense hero, a kleptomaniac octogenarian and a trip through the Underworld, not at all what I expected but just what I needed.

Sophea Long has been hired to escort her elderly charge to Egypt to join a cruise down the Nile. While her charge turns out to be a handful with a fascination for anything shiny, Sophea finds herself caught up in trying to protect her fr

This was an awesome ending to a good trilogy, but really to at least 10 books in this epic series of many handsome fun dragons! Unexpected twists in this one - like really unexpected! It harkened back to the beginning when her books were just hilarious with crazy antics! It made me laugh again and again! The main characters were loveable and fresh, but awesome additions to a fun groups of dragons. Sad to wrap up these dragon books because they've been a fun ride!

I wanted to like this book more than I did. Her crazy dragon world is full of imagination and hijinks that are sometimes hard to keep up with. Rowan and Sophea were fun but don’t expect a sultry romance. It was more rapid dialogue (Sophea never stops talking) and fast paced action. It was unique and I couldn’t wait to

Sophea is nearly broke, a widow and no idea what to do with her life. She is offered a job, to escort an elderly lady to Europe. It seemed like the ideal job. Little did she know how lively her octogenarian client would be, or that she would lead her into a world she never knew existed. A world with dragons, demons, and mysterious dark-haired stranger. She determined to protect her charge from herself as well as others, but that stranger kisses like a dream…

From the second sentence the book, “Would this happen to be your vibrating butterfly?”, Dragon Soul will keep you both smiling in delight and page turning to see what happens next.

In Dragon Soul, Dragon Soul, Katie MacAlister has once again taken us into her paranormal Dragon world filled with passion, action and humor. Her excellent gift of portraying an innocuous scene that by peeling away the layers by turning the page gives the truth of the tale.

I loved Sophea, girl was a breath of fresh air, "I wrapped a hand around the base of his p****, giving it a friendly squeeze, not hard, just enough to let him know I was there. “Such an odd piece of the body,” I said, leaning forward to touch my tongue on what I figured was a sensitive spot. “And yet so very fascinating, too.” I loved Rowan, "he was silent for a moment, his hands tightening on my hips. “Aroused.

Best book in the Dragon Falls trilogy with an interesting plot and a love story that seemed believable. Stakes were high, but because the heroine was clueless about it, the reader didn't feel the importance of saving the world at any point either, which diminished the impact of the book somewhat. But at least it didn't have an annoying third wheel 'quirky' character with an endless unnecessary commentary, and the lighter characters never took over the plot completely, which made the book an enjo ...more
DNF sadly have to say I could not finish this book. I wanted to love it. Dragons are one of my favorites! But alas I could not stand the heroine. She babbled like an insecure girl and her comments were not appropriate and she was so not heroine material. Even when she was in the throws of "passion". She sounded like a blithering idiot. The plot seemed interesting but she annoyed me too much to continue. :(

Excellent conclusion to the series. I totally loved Sophea and Rowan. Their chemistry was electric and the humor was off the charts. I so loved seeing all the gang together. Simply wonderful.

This a great fantasy novel however it is poorly edited. There are so many grammatical errors. One or two I can forget and move on but this one has a bunch of errors.
Sophea, desperate for money, agreed to take on the job of accompanying an elderly lady to Egypt for her cruise. On the plane she met Rowan and from there onwards this sets off a series of events. She is a dragon, the old lady is a priestess that stole an invaluable ring and everybody is out to get the ring from the old lady. Rowan,

Dragon Soul is told from the point of view of the female lead Sophea Long. We dive right into the story with Sophea and Mrs. P and their adventures on their way to Cairo. Sophea has the potential to be a strong female lead in this book, but it just doesn’t fully develop for me. She is strong in her own way but she is lacking in the common sense department. Sometimes she just needed to keep her mouth shut. It did make for some comedic relief when sh

I rarely skim books and try my absolute hardest to read them even if they’re not really up to my liking. This book tested my patience. Like REALLY tested it.

The whole reading experience felt like I was in lalaland. Just wandering around aimlessly and have absolutely no idea where I’m going towards. That’s what the plot seemed like in my opinion.

The main character? /sighs exasperatedly/ She was dense and acted silly most of the time that I was just facepalming internally. There was one event whe

Another great read from Katie MacAlister in the Dragon Soul series. After losing her husband Sofea ran in to a bit of bad luck so a chance to chaperone an elderly woman to Egypt sounds like a great way to earn some money and see a little bit of the world. What Sofea didn't expect was that her charge was a bit of a kleptomaniac, and that a few people were trying to kill her. Rowan needs something that Sofea's charge has stolen and he does not think that her intentions are pure so he sticks close ...more

The dragon septs are in a roil, red dragon mate is found, the First Dragon and Rowan make a deal. New friends and old share a journey with older enemies.
The newest wyvern gets tutored by Constantine, Kostya and Gabriel. Quite a hoot overall, the impulsive 'turned on by x-name your body part' chatter is beginning to feel a little formulaic. -1 star

Boilerplate. Alas, this is my final Katie Mac dragon read. Katie, I've loved ye well, but your recent work just doesn't live up to your earlier work. The Aisling Grey and dragon series are good up to just after Gabriel and May -- that may be the last really original novel. The rest all seem to me to be interchangeable names and places. In fact, adding Gabriel and some of the other dragons and mates improved this story and could have used more developed input from them.

So glad to reach the end of this story arc. This had a good couple of plot twist, familiar faces, and a HFN ending. I loved reading again about May and Gabriel (they are my favorite in this series) just wished there was more interaction. I was laughing so hard at the ending chapter, tears running down my face. Always good to end a story with a smile.

Dragons, a kleptomaniac, a debt owed, and retribution make for a fun romp through this the 3rd in the Dragon Falls series by Katie Macalister. Again, I recommend reading as much as you can in order, starting with the Aisling Grey series. This one had a few twists. The cruise ship was pretty interesting. A fun read

If you are a fan of the Dragon series, this is like a fun family reunion. So many characters that I enjoy are in this novel, and the witty banter moves the plot along. Can't wait for the next one.

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.

Since her editor refused to allow her to include either witty dialo ...more
