Publisher's Summary

From contemporary romance to paranormal page-turners and pause-resisters, the books of New York Times best-selling author Katie MacAlister prove to be irresistible treats. The third entry in MacAlister’s Light Dragons series, Sparks Fly continues the ever-more-intriguing adventures of Tully Sullivan (aka Ysolde de Bouchier). A normal suburban mom, Tully was having a perfectly fine life as a human before discovering she is in fact a dragon—complete with a dragon mate named Baltic!

Oh Katie Katie what has happened??

I started off loving these Dragon series they were funny, sexy, and romantic BUT this seems like a watered-down version of the Silver Dragons. Yes, it was funny but so BORING that I fast forwarded through the whole book and I never thought I'd be doing that. It almost ended up being a children's book about dragons - gone was the hot sex scenes (there was plenty of talk) and gone was the sweet new romance that the Dragons are known for it was just filled with meaningless dialogue, a disjointed plot and it was so repetitive.

Worth a credit? It breaks my heart but I'd have to say No and if there's a book 4 then I won't be downloading it, and I have to ask - did Katie MacAlister actually write this?

My favorite installment of them all!!!!

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!!!!

If there were only one Audible book I could take to a deserted island, this would be the one!!!! I never tire of listening to the hilarious interactions between Baltic, Constantine, Magoth, And Jim! I can't get enough!

Love this Series!!!

What made the experience of listening to Sparks Fly the most enjoyable?

I guess the narrator, she really brings the characters to life

What other book might you compare Sparks Fly to and why?

I'm not sure there's any books that could compare to katie macalister, she stands alone!

Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Only in these books, she does a great job with these!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I had a hard time putting it down

Any additional comments?

Love these books

Weak Plot and Anticlimactic Ending

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A better plot and a narrator who did a better job with making distinction between female character voices. I did know if Ailsing, May or Ysolde was speaking at times. Also Braum sounded too much like Jim.

What was most disappointing about Katie MacAlister’s story?

There were times while listening to Sparks Fly that I fell I was listening to the monologue of a sexually frustrated housewife. The quick pace and humorous dialogue I had become accustom to from MacAlister was reduced to long rants about sexual fantansies and food menus. Finishing the first three chapters was particular difficult as the story stall and Ysolde spent entirely too much time in an Adult Sex store shopping for replacement toys for Pavel. You ask why Ysolde would be spending time leisurely shopping for sex toys instead of moving forward on the more urgent task she was given by the First Dragon? To that point your guess is as good as mine. Ysolde claimed she felt bad that Pavel lost his toys when their former house was destroyed. One would think since Pavel was living in the house at the time of its demise that he would have lost a great many things more important that his fleece lined handcuffs. Why wasn't Ysolde buying Pavel necessities such as clothing? What was even more preplexing was why both Constantine (a shade who has confessed undying love for Ysolde) and the First Dragon (a god like figure) would just show up at the sex shop of all places for a little chat. I could go on and on about the many issues with the book that include but are not limited to poor narration and an anti climatic revelation (the task the first dragon assigned Ysolde all those many years ago).

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The voices of too many of the characters were too similar. It was very difficult to distinguish between characters.

What character would you cut from Sparks Fly?

Non-essential characters such as Constantine, Cyrene and Kostya. They only served to drag the plot on.

Any additional comments?

In a nut shell, this book is not worth the loss of a credit or a single dollar. It seems to me that the prolific Ms MacAlister may need to slow down and spend a bit more time with a piece before publication. Or it could simple be that as a reader I have out grown her re-writing of the same characters over and over again. For now, I have taken her off of my favorite author list.
