Book #3 in the Aisling Grey, Guardian novels. Now Aisling is in London about to start her training as a Guardian with her mentor Nora. But things are never easy and her recent past catches up with her - her mate Drake is in town, and war has started between the green and red septs. Also someone is trying to kill Aisling and people keep trying to get her to agree to support them as either Venediger or Prince of Abbaddon. This felt like a snack - not really a full meal, very easy and fast to consume, light on substance. If you were expecting something fulfilling, this will leave you unsatisfied, but if you were expecting something light and fun, this may be the book for you. As usual Aisling Grey manages to get herself into trouble, often because she doesn't know many of the rules of demons, dragons and Guardians. I found myself somewhat frustrated by a) how much trouble she could get into (to quote Aisling herself "these constant "out of the frying pan, into the fire, into a worse fire, into a worse fire than the worse fire before it" situations that had been riddling my life of late were beginning to wear me down".), and b) why doesn't any other character tell her the rules, and how many times do they have to assume she already knows or won't tell her because she didn't ask?! Lastly c) plot inconsistancies (things happening that didn't really get explained or not explained very well, then swept under the carpet - my disbelief is not suspended). That plot device is wearing thin, and I think I would have enjoyed it more if Aisling doesn't spend 100% of the book completely clueless running from one disaster to another. Getting frustrated by that. If you aspect of these novels doesn't bother you, then the book will be enjoyable.

If you love this series by Katie McAlister, then you should read this book, as funny as the prevoius ones, yet this book moves the romance between Aisling and Drake along nicely.. they are actually friendly to each other and accept the fact that they both are in LOVE.. great series, great book

Book #3 in the Aisling Grey, Guardian series.

MacAlister's third paranormal Aisling Grey novel takes her heroine and her pet demon, Jim (who looks like a Newfoundland dog), to London, where she is apprenticing to Nora to learn the Guardian trade. She is soon on the hot seat when Jim eats the Imp king, but that may be the least of her problems since the Green and Red dragon clans are now at war, and someone wants her dead. The imps do torch Nora's house so Aisling, Nora, and Jim move into the London mansion of Drake Vireo, green-eyed wyvern, and sparks fly. Then, kidnapped while wearing only a towel, Aisling is pitched from the frying pan into the fire when she is then stolen from her kidnappers and required to draw on her dark powers to vanquish a Demon Lord. MacAlister's crazy paranormal high jinks, delightful characters, and simmering romance between Aisling and Drake will appeal to fans of MaryJanice Davidson's Betsy Taylor, Queen of the Vampires, series.

This is the third book in the Aisling Grey Guardian series by Katie MacAlister. I thought that this book was much better than the second book and much more on par with the first book.

Aisling is moving to London to start her Guardian training with Nora. Once again right from the beginning things start going wrong. She finds out Nora is being called in for questioning which could lead to Nora losing her rights to mentor Aisling. Then on her first outing with Nora; Jim eats the imp king. Now the imps are out for Aisling's blood. As if this wasn't enough Aisling finds out Drake is in town, the Red Dragons have declared war on Green Dragon sept, the London community wants Aisling to take over as Venediger (sp?), and everyone keeps telling Aisling she is pregnant (which she just can't believe).

This book was much better than the last book. I felt like the plot made a lot more sense. Many of the problems Aisling ran into were wrapped up nicely. Aisling and Drake actually start to have a decent relationship with each other. The problems Aisling gets into with the demon princes and with the dragons were interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

As with the other books this is a light, humorous read, that shouldn't be taken too seriously. Aisling gets too whiny at some points, and suffers a bit from being a damsel in distress more often than not. Drake is irritating with his need to control her; but in this book that is tempered some and we see Drake gaining some humanity. This is a quick, easy, and amusing read. There are a lot of sex scenes but they are creative and tastefully done. I am actually very excited to read the next book (which is something I couldn't say after the second book).

If you liked the first two books, this book shouldn't disappoint.

Once again it was just an okay book. I really wanted to like this series. I even took the time to aquire the first three books and read them in order. I just wasn't impressed. I'm probably not even going to read the fourth book. I didn't hate it, but it fell way below my expectations.

Third in series. This wasn't my favorite. You would think after two other books, Aisling would get with the program. But nooooooo, she still complains about bumbling through everything. Her demon Jim was the only factor that held my interest to finish the book.

Aisling Grey is juggling being a demon lord, a Guardian, and a wyvern's mate, even though she's keeping her distance from said wyvern, Drake, these days. But her presence is still required at a meeting of the green dragons. Since several attempts have been made on her life, Drake is sure to get protective of her. Which might not be a bad thing when war breaks out and all hell breaks loose-literally.

I have to agree with Jai; this book IS funny-- but there is just so any times you can have the heroine (who is a guardian, a wyvern's mate and a demon lord)blunder around like a headless chicken. Please, someone so gifted can't possibly be so clueless!!!

Jim is laugh out loud funny as usual...is it wrong to want a demon in the guise of a Newfoundland?

This is not a stand-alone book, so be sure to read "You Slay Me" and "All Fired Up" first. This is the third book in the
Aisling Grey Guardian series by Katie MacAlister.

As usual, Aisling finds herself ignorantly blundering through various difficulties, while maintaining her usual innocent
charm. Aisling suffers a bit from being a damsel in distress more often than not. The problems Aisling gets into with the
demon princes and with the dragons were interesting. Drake is irritating with his need to control her; but in this book that
is tempered some and we see Drake gaining some humanity. Aisling and Drake actually start to have a decent relationship
with each other. There are a lot of sex scenes but they are creative and tastefully done. I am actually very excited to
read the next book.

If you liked the first two books, this book shouldn't disappoint. All-in-all, the book was as fun and humorous as the first
two. If you want something that is light and entertaining then you will enjoy this, especially if you have enjoyed the
first two installments of the series. However, if you are looking for a story that is deep and thought provoking, this is
NOT the book for you.

Gosh the plague of bad luck just dogs Aisling like her demon who's a Newfandland. Why doesn't she ever figure out why she's a Guardian? I don't think that question is ever answered. She seems to have the hots for her green dragon man even though she's treated horribly, which I just don't find as appealing as the first book in this series.

Great book, fast paced with lots of twists. Aisling finds out her mentor has been forbidden to teach her, she gets tricked by a demon, Drake loses and partially regains her as a mate, and Jim (the doggie demon) eats the ruler of the imps causing retribution from them.

While Aisling & Drake sizzle and set fire to more draperies, the plot just isn't there for this volume in the series. Definitely a transitional book. I'm looking forward to the next.

Aisling Grey, Guardian trainee, Demon Lord, and Dragon's mate, has done it again. She's up to her neck in trouble with Dragons feuding over her (besides the Dragon war possibly about to start) and a mysterious Lord of Hell who keeps sending minions after her. With all her other troubles it hardly seems worth mentioning that the entire Imp Empire is out for her blood since her pet demon more or less accidentally ate the Imp king.

I liked this, but it wasn't quite as good as the first two books in the series. I think the plots are getting a wee bit predictable in the series.
