Dragon Fall, Katie MacAlister
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
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.
