Dragon Fall, Katie MacAlister

 

 

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre:  Romance,
I really liked the sound of this one, and was convinced I’d like it. sadly I didn’t – thats the way it goes, not all books suit all readers.
I didn’t like either of the main characters, Aoife had gone through al  lot over the past two years, and I found the beginning very intriguing. Once she meets Jim and then Kostya it went downhill for me. She was just too naive, too accepting and as for that alliterative cursing – drove me mad. sounded like something from the kids cartoon Scooby Do, not a novel aimed at adults. There was a lot of humour in the novel but somehow it just felt overdone, tried too hard and that’s when humour fails for me. Then there’s Kostya….he’s rude, abrupt, arrogant and yet somehow in the course of a couple of days she’s in love, accepts she’s his mate and he’s a dragon?
I did finish the book, but it was a hard struggle, and I skimmed quite a bit after 50% when I just wanted to get to the end of it. Still, as I said to begin, everyone wants different things from their reading, and this will be perfect for some readers just not for me.
Stars: Two.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.

    I looked at that one, but thought that might be what was going to happen – it just felt, well, like it was going to go sour…
