Publisher's Summary

Gabriel Tauhou, the leader of the silver dragons, can't take his eyes of May Northcott - not even when May, who has the unique talent of being able to hide in the shadows, has slipped from everyone else's sights.

May, however, has little time for Gabriel - not when she's hiding from the Otherworld law, hunting down a blackmailer, and trying to avoid a demon lord's demands. But her ability to withstand Gabriel's fire marks her as his mate, and he has no intention of letting her disappear into the darkness she seems to prefer.

May is ordered to steal one of Gabriel's treasures - an immensely important relic of all dragonkin - and he must decide which to protect: his love or his dragons.

    Story
    "The hilarous six class demon dog Jim is back!!"

    This book deserves 4 1/2 stars for being hilarious & super sexy!! The Silver Dragons series is a follow up of the Aisling Grey: Guardian books. The story revolves around May a doppelganger and her twin, Cyrene who is a naiad. This book is the first in the “Sliver Dragon” series, which continues some of the storylines of the “Aisling Grey, Guardian” paranormal romance series. May Northcott, a doppelganger for a naiad, meets Gabriel, the head of the Silver Dragons, and there is instant chemistry between them. But May has been bound to Magoth, a demon lord, which might prevent her from a relationship with Gabriel. Now combine a theft, a kidnapping, blackmail, and the fun never ends! May Northcott a doppelganger and can walk in the shadows. Unfortunately, when she was created she was tied in service to a demon lord. May meets Aisling, Drake and the unforgettable Gabriel, whom you might remember from Aisling’s stories as the wyvern of the Silver Dragons. It turns out she’s is mate, which creates funny situations with her twin and another dragon. At any rate, in this book she is attempting to help her common senseless sister deal with a blackmailer, avoid her demon lords demands, deal with the mate situation and also run from Otherworld law. I really loved the intensity that comes with being the mate of a Dragon. They are very possessive, but you can't help but feel their love for why they are that way over their mates. I enjoyed entering the supernatural world of the dragons. I really liked the Aisling Grey series, but I think I prefer this one. I would recommend all of Katie MacAlister's dragon series!

    I spin my own wool and knit. Listening to audiobooks while I craft is one of my favorite things. I'm hooked.

    Story
    "Warning: No ending"

    When I buy a book in a series, I expect each book to be a complete book with a beginning and an ending and some teasers to make me want to buy the next book. I do not like when book finishes in a cliffhanger with nothing resolved. This book is such a book, and if you don't plan on buying book 2 from the get-go, don't bother with this one. I wish I hadn't.

    The book itself is funny and entertaining. It does have characters in it from the Aisling Grey: Guardian series, and I haven't read those, so I felt a little lost. So while this book says it's the first in a series, it doesn't really "feel" that way. Situations are mentioned and characters are involved in this book in a big way, and I felt I was missing out on a lot of the back story. By far though the worst part of the book is the ending, which isn't an ending at all.

    After reading this book, I felt like I needed to read all of the Aisling Grey: Guardian books and the 2nd book in the Silver Dragon series just to get an idea of whether I like this one or not. I usually do follow through with a series I enjoy, but I won't this time, mainly because I resent feeling as if I'm being forced to read them.

    "Playing with Fire: Silver Dragons, Book 1"

    I enjoyed the book although I didn't realize at first that it downloaded in two segments. I am extremely disappointed that you don't have books 2 and 3. How can you only stock book and one and four in a series? I truly hope this doesn't represent your service going forward!

    Story
    "Demons Lords and Mages and Dragons, OH MY!"

    I have been a faithful Katie Macalister fan from day 1.... Before I joined Audible-I READ every series she has out and in doing so, my mind had created it's own opinion of all the character's voices, traits, etc... So, when I purchased and began listening to the Audible versions- narrated by Barbara Rosenblat, I admit I was a bit worried it wouldn't do them justice.... Her voice is very distinct- BUT... Oh, how I was SOOOO wrong!!!! Barbara's unique vocal ranges and absolutely superb variations on the characters accents BLEW ME AWAY!!! There really is no other narrator who could pull it off so flawlessly! Bravo Katie, and BRAVO Barbara!!!!

    "Great Story - horrible narration!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Playing with Fire to be better than the print version?

    I love reading this book - however listening to it was a horrible experience - all of Barbara Rosenblat's characters sound the same in the books she narrates and the different voices she uses for the characters just aren't that different so you can't really tell which character is doing what in the narration


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Barbara Rosenblat?

    Joyce Bean or Susan Ericksen would be good choices


    Any additional comments?

    I'll stick to reading this series as long as Barbara Rosenblat is the narrator which is sad considering I love audiobooks so much - I've already stopped listening to another series because of this narrator now it looks like I'm stopping another series because of this narrator

    "love it"

    Can't wait to start the next book in the series. I thought I might not enjoy this since I started with the books after silver dragons still loved it.

    Story
    "Silver not as good as Green."

    This trilogy happens right after the Aisling Grey series, which I recommend reading first. There is a lot of references in this book, plus you get a lot more of Jem the demon dog. I did enjoy this story, but I wish there was a little bit more hard to get from Maeling than there was. Gabriel and Maeling seemed to jump into bed way too fast and that's fast if I'm complaining about it. One minute there is doubt about the mating and the next she claimed. Then one day later love, it's a miracle. Needless to say I didn't feel the connection between the characters. Despite that problem the story was quite an adventure between demon lords, the Loadala, black dragons and theft trackers. Because of both the irritating cliffhanger and the unbelievable quickness of the love story I would give the story 3.5 overall. I'm debating over listening to the next book, maybe a sale is in order for the next. Narrator is mostly good, only a couple of cringe worthy spots added.

    "YOU ARE AMAZING"
    If you could sum up Playing with Fire in three words, what would they be?

    CANT STOP READING


    What other book might you compare Playing with Fire to and why?

    NONE KATIE MACALISTER KEEPS YOU ON THE EDGE


    What does Barbara Rosenblat bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    LOVE HER INFLECTION, EACH CHARACTER HAS HIS OWN PERSONALITY


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    WHEN MAYLING FINALLY REALIZED SHE WAS GABRIEL'S MATE


    Any additional comments?

    KATIE KEEP WRITING I WILL KEEP READING AND LISTENING I BECOME PART OF THE STORY AND IT EXCITES ME

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "Good but the story continues in Book 2 and 3"

    I thought this was a really good start to a series. There were references to things that I didn't understand but must have been covered in other series. However that didn't detract from my enjoyment of this book. It had a good storyline, it was funny, lots of different characters and I'm ready to listen to Book 2.
