For Aoife Dakar, seeing is believing-and she's seen some extraordinary things. It's too bad no one else believes that she witnessed a supernatural murder at an outdoor fair. Returning to the scene for proof, Aoife encounters a wise-cracking demon dog-and a gloriously naked man who can shift into a dragon and kiss like a god. Now thrust into a fantastical world that's both exhilarating and terrifying, Aoife is about to learn just how hot a dragon's fire burns.


Kostya has no time for a human woman with endless questions, no matter how gorgeous or tempting she is. He must break the curse that has splintered the dragon clans before more of his kind die. But his powerful attraction to Aoife runs much deeper than the physical-and there may be more to her than even his sharp dragon eyes can see. To survive the coming battle for the fate of his race, he needs a mate of true heart and soul . . .

One of the aspects I enjoyed about DRAGON FALL was the world building. I love seeing different takes on dragon lore and this one was especially unique.The story follows Aoife as she begins to discover this strange new world filled with dragons except of course she discovers it at a time when there is the greatest conflict and danger for the dragons. The plot is fun and there are a ton of quirky characters and silly moments most of which include Jim, the demon dog. Jim is crazy and so much fun, also Jim is a perfect name for a demonic entity. Like many other Katie MacAlister books there is so much tongue in cheek humor and rapid dialogue in DRAGON FALL.

Aoife was an interesting main character and while she wasn't physically tough she had spirit and was insanely adaptable to the whole concept of dragons existing. One issue I had with her was her odd exclamations such as "Holy cheese whiz!". I found it confusing and weird the first time and every other time she uttered something like that. I wasn't a huge fan of Kostya. He seemed too grumpy and came off as a bit too alpha for my liking. I kind of wanted to shoo away the dark cloud that seemed to follow over his head at times. The romance between Aoife and Kostya is quick and very fun to see evolve.

DRAGON FALL is ridiculous, witty, and satirical. If you like your romance with a heaping dose of silly and irreverence then I'd highly suggest this book and other Katie MacAlister stories as they run along a similar vein.
