Review: Memoirs of a Dragon Hunter by Katie MacAlister

Book Blurb

Dragon Hunter Wanted:
Sword supplied. No experience necessary.

One moment, I was a normal (if somewhat germaphobic) math teacher getting ready for summer vacation. Then my sister died in a pile of black ash, leaving me with a sword... and her destiny as dragon hunter. It turns out there's a whole other world out there filled with demons, dragons, and spirits. Now my job is to protect mortals - and I haven't got a clue what I'm doing.

Then there's tattooed hotness Ian Iskander. Part dragon hunter and part demon, Ian's got some seriously creepy business associates and keeps trying to steal my sword. So why do we keep getting lost in hungry, crazy-hot kisses? Ian is the only person who can help me figure out who - and what - I am. But trusting a half-demon is dangerous... because when you play with dragon fire, someone always gets burned.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

I love this author and have read several of her books.  I was excited to read this one.  Dragons are a favorite paranormal shape shifter of mine.  So, I was a bit surprised with the combination of dragon and demon.  That was a new spin.  Veronica was a main character that was completely neurotic.  I lost patience with her constantly.
Ian was a complex character who was bonded to a demon lord by sacrificing himself.  He has a job to do and is surprised to find Veronica, which was funny.  He had no idea what to do at first.
The storyline itself was a bit confusing. It was unique, and I’ve never read anything like it. However, I was constantly confused like Ronnie.  I assumed that is what the author intended.  I was a bit disappointed in the story overall.  I had high expectations considering the books I’ve read before.  This one didn’t hold my attention as well.

The story was full of comical situations and dialog with I expect from this author.  I could easily picture the situations the characters found themselves in.  The combination of personalities was fun and kept things moving.  So, the characters were good, but the storyline was just ok.  I give it a 3 out of 5.
