A Stalker From Hell May Northcott is a woman at the end of her rope. She’d almost gotten used to her employer, the ex-demon lord Magoth, spending his days hanging around her home and interrupting her private moments with her lover, Gabriel. Then trouble appears on her doorstep in the form of a nearly dead man.

With May fighting to control the dragon shard, Magoth wrangling

This review contains a few spoilers for the previous book.

This book was so long in coming (a year), that I had pretty much forgotten all the plot details from the previous one. I couldn't remember why Magoth had been expelled from Abaddon or why he had lost his powers. I certainly couldn't remember how he ended up living with May and Gabriel - though I suppose that's because he's bound to May. I couldn't remember how the dragon shard had ended up in May and, oh, lots of other little things. But

The third book in The Silver Dragon Series and it is really starting to pick up steam. I wish I didn't have to wait a year to find out what is going to happen next - so many details will slip through my mind about this book (and the last two as well) before the fourth one arrives.

I feel like this book was the pivot point for our main character May Northcott. Let's face it - she has way too much going on and it makes sense that she would feel a bit lost with having to divide herself between all

I feel kind of bad about it, but I skimmed around most of the book. I've really enjoyed the series so far but it seems like ages since I've read the previous books. I could barely remember most of what's happened. I was also sort of disappointed in the lack of Gabriel in this book, and in turn the lack of scenes with him a the heroine together. I still enjoyed the book but not as much as I'd hoped.

Jim was his usual funny demon-dog self. May's consort demon lord stole the show in this book. He was hilarious :)

I'm really glad I re-read book1 and book2 before reading this one. It helped me remember what was going on.

If you are going to read this series, be sure to read the Aisling Grey series first. Otherwise, you won't appreciate this series as much.

Too many things happened here. Fast-paced and full of action. Looking forward to read the next series

Laugh out loud funny! Sarcastic, irreverent and sometimes self-depreciating but always humorous. Katie MacAlister is a master at infusing her paranormal romance and urban fantasy stories with rib tickling humor to go along with all the action and sexy romance. This third in the Silver Dragons series is no different.

This story takes place 6 weeks after the end of the second novel in the series. Aisling is in the late stages of pregnancy and Drake is driving everyone crazy with his over protective

I was happy to finish this book. It kept my attention but a lot of the time I was just waiting for the wrap up parts... and MacAlister delivered on wrapping it up - yet still leaving a little open to make way for the next series with Baltic. I'm not sure how I feel about Baltic so I'm not sure if I'll continue...but probably cause I'm a sucker!

I loved Jim, Drake, Aisling and the rest of the characters from the Gaurdian series that make an appearance. Still hate Magoth but now that his story lin

After reading the first two books in the "Silver Dragons" series, I was really looking forward to the third one. It was no where near as good as the first two. In fact, it lacked quite a bit of passion between May and Gabriel. The author seems to have tied up a couple of things but has kept the dragon plot going in which seems to be a new series entitled "Light Dragons", therefore making me wonder if there is more to come between May and Gabriel. I also found that for a simple book, there were t ...more

I really liked MacAlister's dragon books but she is the queen of creating annoying side-characters. It seems her idea of funny means obnoxious and they just get worse that by the 3rd book in the series you're begging for mercy. If these characters were real people you'd want to scream "shut the *&%$@ up!" if you were unfortunate enough to know them. Thankfully narrator of the Silver Dragon series, May Northcott and her man Gabriel did not fall into that category unfortunately their charm was not ...more

I really liked all the new findings in this book. Also, sometimes when I'm reading MacAlister's books, sometimes I have to check and re-check to make sure I'm clear on who all the characters are because there are a lot of them.

This book continues May's quest to reunite the dragon heart and free herself fromt he shard within her. Gabriel gets to strut his kick ass-ness in this book, which I love. Sometimes, I find him a little soft. Drake stands out as a leader amongst all the wyverns in the wey

ROFL! I could cheerfully throttle SEVERAL of these disastrous, and outrageously flabbergasting, characters! Dragons! Such a dramatic group of individuals so quick to the draw and slow to hold their impulses!

This book is great but best read back-to-back with the other silver dragon books. If I had to describe this book in two words, they'd be ASSLESS CHAPS :)

If you are familiar with this universe and the lives of the characters inhabiting it, this volume tosses you right into the deep end and trundles along at a good pace. If you are like me, however, and this is the first McAllister book you have ever read, be ready to try and catch up. There’s a lot of history, details, and inside jokes that will slip right past while you are trying to find descriptions of scenery described in some detail in previous tales.

This is not a horrible thing, but it did

Love the varied characters in Katie MacAlister's books. Fun quirky personalities. And in this book, Me and My Shadow lots of fun with Magoth and Jim, two of my favorites. I've read all of Katie's books and haven't been disappointed yet....

The silver dragon story ended on a surprise, to usher in a new story line but other then that this book was unremarkable.

As enthralling as her other dragon books. Can’t wait to see what happens next. Guess we will find out more about the black dragons.

OK. I finally finished my modern-ish romance faze. I'm glad I gave the genre a go, but in the end, it wasn't for me. I feel like the silver dragon series went downhill in this novel in some ways, but also breathed new light into the meaning of love in romance in others. I'll start with what I liked: May and Gabriel's love cooled down; there was even a direct reference to the fear that May had that the "honeymoon is over". This was quite refreshing, in that it mirrored real couples. A lot of what ...more

Some bits were funny, especially with Magoth, the overthrown ruler of Hel.., ups Abaddon, but overall - meh.
Sad. I like dragons. And demons. Shadows and doppelgangers - not so much.

I wanted to give this book a 2 star. There were some scenes that deserved a 1 star. In the end the complete absurdity of it all just made me laugh rather than frustrating me.

This series is just too ridiculous. The characters dialogue and actions have been on repeat for all the 3 books.

May and Gabriel:

Run around looking for objects, pause to have sex, contemplate having foreplay, it doesn't work out, proceed with sex, run around some more.

Aisling:

I'm so pregnant the baby is almost a year old

"But Romantic Cynic Katie MacAlister's books are nothing more than wish-fulfillment smut good for a rainy day. How could you give this five stars?"

Every once and a while I need some good guilty pleasures. Ever since Aishling Gray came along, I turned to MacAlister for that. Yes, all the males are annoying Alpha and perfect and overbearing and feminisim runs from the sight of them, but let me defend myself here with the Silver Dragons.

I thought MacAlister couldn't top the Aishling Gray series an

(3.5 stars) This series is what I'd call light, romantic, urban fantasy. The couple is formed in the first book, so you have your HEA, but the same couple continues to grow over the course of the series, which has a complete story arc to itself.

In this case, the Silver Dragon series is a branch off the Aisling Grey series (which is about the Green Dragons). So, read that one first if you're going to start. And the Light Dragon series is a spin off of this one, so you'll want to read that series

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
