Quote-tastic Monday: Dragon Fall

I know it’s been a few weeks since I have posted, but I have a good reason.  My dad died on April 2nd.  It wasn’t unexpected, but this blog was no where on the list of things I had to deal with.  On that note, it feels wonderful to get back to normal, such as it is.

I am still reading the Sept Dragons by Katie MacAlister and loving them.  I am finally to one that I had not read before which makes it even better.  Aoife (EE-fuh) is human but has accidentally acquired a magic ring.  Kostya, who has to be the grumpiest of all dragons is her mate, although he won’t admit it.

There are Star Trek references in this one, but that is not where I am going to focus today.

Aoife’s feelings are hurt because she believes Kostya is only interested in her because she owns the ring.  He is defending himself and in all honestly doing a good job of it.  And that’s when Aoife gets mad.

“Of course I’m not,” I snapped.  “And stop being reasonable when I’ve got hurt feelings.”

That is right up there with “Don’t confuse me with facts.” and “Listen to what I mean, not what I say.”   And yes, I have used both of these myself.

Anyway, there are only three more books so far in this series and I think I’m going to take a break.  I received two new books this week, one I purchased and one to review, and I think I will give them a try.

I will definitely come back to the Sept Dragons soon.   That’s a guarantee!

Quote-tastic Monday: No Star Trek Reference This Week

I am reading another of the Sept Dragons however.  This is the first one that is not about Aisling Grey, so I guess that is why there is a dearth of Star Trek references.  –sigh–

It really is a good book though and like all Katie MacAlister books, it is definitely funny.  So without further ado . . . the quotes.

Gabriel and May are newly mated and in his opinion May can do no wrong.  Drake, the dragon who is mated to Aisling, knows better however.  He tells Gabriel,

“She’s a female American.  No doubt you will soon understand the true depth of hell she can put you through.”

And, of course, I have to include something about the demon in dog form, Jim.

Several of the dragons are fighting.  This is nothing new.  It’s almost a constant occurrence in this book.  Aisling has just told Jim to stop them.

“Stop them how?  You want I should pee on them or something?”  Jim asked Aisling.

Which apparently was a good idea because

The threat of urination had more effect than all the pleading in the world.  En masse the dragons hastily got to their feet, dirty, bleeding, and furious, to a man.

And so, my contribution to the Quote-tastic Monday annals.  Enjoy!
