Review: Holy Smokes by Katie MacAlister

Holy Smokes (Aisling Grey #4)
by Katie MacAlister
Urban Fantasy

Another day, another catastrophic event! Planning a wedding is difficult at the best of times, but with Princes of Hell demending innocent souls, lecturing mother-in-laws and a certain wyvern bridegroom that has gone missing the shit has truely hit the fan for Aisling Grey, Prince of Hell, Guardian and wyvern mate extradonaire. Will she overcome all the new challenges before her, or will it be one disaster too many?

Oh poor Aisling, what a real cock up (in more ways then one haha) the past 6 months has been for her! Although she has found true love, an amazing and hilarious sidekick and a kick ass career it hasn't been easy for her, the odds are never in her favour and lets face it, she can be a little slow on the uptake sometimes. But I have really enjoyed these books, they are funny adventure filled stories that leave you dying to know what will happen next. And as well as having far fetched but highly entertaining plots, this series also had fantstic characters that have kept me glued to the page.

If you have read my reviews for the previous books in the series (which you should they are amazing reviews lol!) you will probably have guessed that I have an intense and disturbing obsession with Jim. I can't help it; I love him, I want a Jim all of my own so he can comment sarcastically on my life at inappropriate times and slobber over anyone who pisses me off. Aisling has also kept me highly entertained as well, I love that she keeps certain arrogant and overbearing wyverns in their place, whilst also melting into a pile of goo whenever he smoulders at her! As for the overbearing wyvern in question, Drake, I still "meh" him, I like him, he is okay he gives great orgasms but I just can't get all hot and bothered about him.

But these books are worth reading for new world they create and watching Aisling and Co stumble through it. If these books were a comedy TV programme, I would class them as slapstick, you know one of those scenes where a characters walks in to something that causes something to fall over that in turn spills something else, until 10 seconds later the whole room looks like the site of a plane crash? This series is like that, only in book form.

I will definitely be reading more Katie MacAlister more specifically her Silver Dragons series, Drake may not have blown my whistle, but Gabriel certainly did!

I haven't read any of the Aisling books, but did read one or two of the spinoff series. Can't think of the name off the top of my head...

Jim sounds like a fun character! I love the slightly wacky ones...they always add such spice to a story. :)

The only books by Katie MacAlister that I have read are the Dark Ones books (love them). These sound great too so I will have to check them out.
