Review: Dragon Storm (Black Dragons #2) by Katie MacAlister

TURN ON THE CHARM

According to some (including himself), Constantine is one of the greatest heroes of dragonkin who ever lived. Too bad he's now lonelier than ever and his biggest adventure involves a blow-up sheep—until he has an opportunity to save his kind once again. All Constantine has to do is break into a demon's dungeon, steal an ancient artifact, and reverse a deadly curse. The plan certainly does not involve rescuing a woman...

TURN UP THE HEAT

Bee isn't sure whether to be infuriated or relieved when Constantine pops up in her prison. The broody, brawny shifter lights her fire in a way no one ever has before, yet how far can she really trust him? Their chemistry may be off the charts, but when push comes to shove, Constantine will have to make a crucial choice: to save the dragons or the woman he's grown to love with fierce intensity.

First book I read in the Black Dragon series I enjoyed but felt just a wee bit lost. This time around, I could care less about that lost feeling because I LOVED Dragon Storm! Daring adventures, lovable characters and lots of laugh out loud moments had me devouring this book as fast as I could.

 

Constantine. Wyvern, charming, dead(?!) he’s lonely and forced to watch they woman he loves be mated to someone else. Until, an opportunity to reverse a deadly curse on his kind presents itself. All he has to do is go to Abaddon, steal an ancient artifact and reverse a curse. Easy peasy! He just didn’t expect to meet a Charmer that would turn his world upside down.

 

I haven’t laughed so hard reading a paranormal romance in I don’t know how long. It all starts with a deviant sexual aid in the form of a deflated blow up sheep in fishnet stocking. That right there hooked me in. A blow-up sheep? ROFL!!! It belongs to none other than our very hero Constantine. Between Twatter, ladyplant, talking heads in gerbil balls and sex toys shaped like a U, I pretty much read this whole book with tears of laughter in my eyes. Constantine I originally thought was a bit too smug. However, that quickly changed to dragon with a heart of gold, and a wicked sense of humor, although I wasn’t always sure if he was serious or just being funny. Bee was quite the saint dealing with Constantine and all the things that came out of his mouth (”I am wise in the way of Oprah…”) without bashing him over the head. The sticky situations they found themselves in were both amusing and adventurous. Do they get a happy end? Yup. Was it what I expected? I’m not sure. Did I find anything about this story predictable? Absolutely not. And I love every minute of it!

 

I word about the secondary characters. Outstanding! In the previous book, we had Jim for our comedy relief who was a dog, who was actually a demon. This time around we have Gary the Knocker. Actually it’s Gareth but no one can remember that. He’s cheery, funny, lacks a filter and has a crush on Constantine. He also happens to be just a head. Yes, the very head in a gerbil ball. If you think the things Constantine said were funny wait to you get a load of Gary! To make things more interesting, characters from the previous books all make an appearance. Because of them and all their hilarious discussions, I am now officially a Katie MacAlister fan.
