Spend some more time with Aisling Grey.

"Wickedly witty, wildly inventive, and fiendishly fun." (Booklist)
This book feels like Harry Potter meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Well, a Buffy the Vampire Slayer rated R for sexual content. MacAlister's heroine is hilarious as she struggles with the arcane underworld of Europe's demon princes, guardians, wyverns, and other magical folk.
My only difficulty was that this book seems to be third in a series. When will Audible.com be making the first two books in the series available?
This book is action packed, sexy and lots of fun. The author has really brought her invention of a world hidden deep within our own of magic and dragons to life. I love the author and hope audible will carry more of her work!
Barbara Rosenblat's outstanding performance of this audiobook could not make up for the author's inconsistencies in this book. Her explanations for the characters' actions are sorely lacking, even if her purpose was to leave us panting for the next book. I was so ready to purchase the next book, having enjoyed the first 3, but now I don't think I will. She left me too frustrated at the end.
Rosenblat's performance, however, was excellent. I especially enjoyed her interpretation of Jim's character. The narrator is the only reason I did not rate this book lower.
A very happy grandmother of 4, who finds Audible extremely conveniently for my way of life.
Extremely intertaining series of books. I wish there were more of them available on audible.com. I always buy the lastest books and want to have the books on my IPOD for travel to veg out. Great narration too.
If you enjoyed the first two Aisling Grey books then you will feel right at home with the third Light My Fire. You have Aisling dealing with her everyday bad luck it seems, doggie demon Jim (who doesn’t love Jim) providing comedy at every turn, and Drake who adds just the right amount of sexiness to this great series. I was not crazy about the narrator at first but have grown to like her as the series progresses. I think this is my favorite of the Aisling Grey books.
I have been reading books by Katie MacAlister for a while now. They are always full of humor while entertaining you with a good plot. Well worth the time!
Rosenblat is a good performer but the swallowing thing is hugely distracting. It just seems like the production people or the director could do something about it.
I normally read science-fiction and fantasy. I found this one while browsing a Valentine's Day sale, and was attracted by the mention of dragons and demons. I should have known better.
Perhaps the main problem was not having read the previous books in the series, but I found the heroine to be very annoying, and her lover to be one-dimensional and uninteresting. I could not get a clear picture of either one of them, and did not really feel any chemistry between them. Even the sex scenes were unconvincing and strangely empty. Worst of all, the narration is full of annoying swallowing sounds.
From here out, I'll stick to my own genre...
I've never listened to a book that has the heroine deal with sooo much bad luck. You have to continue to listen just to find out how Ashling is going to get herself out of this fine mess. She even says that life can't get much worse and, lo and behold, it does. Fortunately she has a great support system in the form of a demon named Jem and one of the fates, as well as, the love of a dragon.
This book ended with a tiny bit of a cliff hanger so I immediately went to the next book. There are four books to this series and I recommend that you read (listen) to them in order.
As I've stated before, I really enjoy series because you can immerse yourself in the lives of the characters and in the they world they live. Isn't that what reading is all about?
