About the Author

For as long as she can remember Katie MacAlister has loved reading, and grew up with her nose buried in a book. It wasn't until many years later that she thought about writing her own books, but once she had a taste of the fun to be had building worlds, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes, she was hooked.

With more than fifty books under her belt, Katie's novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and are regulars on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. A self-proclaimed gamer girl, she lives in the Pacific Northwest with her dogs, and frequently can be found hanging around online.

I loved that Veronica has OCD to the extent she does. We are so used to seeing main characters that have some life problems or major issues from their past but are otherwise strong and health, so seeing a character with a well displayed disorder is amazing. The OCD is very well done in this book and really adds credit to Veronica’s character. With that said, that is where the enjoyment of the characters stops. The secondary characters in this book, namely Veronica’s best friend Teresita, and Ian’s friend/charge, Sasha, are both so prominent they become weird main characters. While this isn’t enough to take a lot of value away from a book for me, the personalities of both characters were. I found both characters annoying in the way they act and talk. Now Sasha is not human so this was understandable, however Teresita was just anger inducing. When she finds out about what has happened between Veronica and her sister she doesn’t show remorse, she doesn’t show worry for Veronica, nor is she even there for her; Instead, she gets stuck on the paranormal aspect and thinks how she and Veronica will benefit from it. She asks what super powers she has and gets disappointed that Veronica doesn’t just know how to use her new powers. Then, when they are on their way back to where Veronica’s sister died in Veronica’s arms not even a full twenty four hours later, Teresita can only talk about how this whole thing will make them famous and what the movie about them will be like when it finally gets made. To top it off, when she sees Veronica in her first fight, instead of worrying her best friend could get hurt or killed she shoves Veronica into the battle and gets upset she not better at it. While I get this was probably for comedy it really put me off of the book.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! The cover is steamy!! This is the first book in this series, and it is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content. This is my first time read Katie’s work. This was an interesting read. It started off confusing for me because I didn’t understand Veronica. Veronica (Ronnie) has OCD and is a germaphobe. This makes for usually humor and interesting steamy content. Ronnie and Ian work together as a couple and team. There are several mysteries that Ronnie is trying to figure out. Ian kicks butt and is very tolerant of Ronnie’s idiosyncrasies. I like when author’s create unique individuals and bring real life problems to the characters. I like watching Ronnie’s evolution into being a kick butt woman who always does the right thing. Her integrity and spirit is beautiful and meshes with Ian. Katie surprised me a time or two in this book which is always refreshing. I recommend to paranormal fans who love interesting worlds filled with paranormals and those who love uniquely challenged characters who shine in the book! I can’t wait to read more of Katie’s books!

This was a great book. Plenty of action, comic relief & OCD goodness! The story is well written and the characters come to life and jump off the page! Read it to see how this Memoir ends! {I received this as an Advanced Reader Copy}

Once upon a time, I had read everything that Katie MacAlister had written. It's been quite a few years since then and I'm not sure why I fell off the path of stalking her writing. I'm so thankful I was reintroduced to her writing because I've completely fallen all over again. If you're looking for a good laugh, you need look no further than the chapter titles and you'll know you're in for a good time with this book. Quick, witty, heartfelt, action-packed, this book has it all! I absolutely loved it. If you like your action mixed with humor, read this right now! You won't regret it. Thank you to NetGalley, Katie MacAlister, and Forever (Grand Central Publishing) for the chance to read this book and share my thoughts and opinions with others.

I am a big Katie MacAlister fan and I was looking forward to this book. Unfortunately it fell completely flat to me. Ronnie was ok, she wasn’t annoying or lovable, she was just sort of there. Ian is hot, but so is every male lead. His personality was ok. Basically I’m used to MacAlister’s leads being much more fun to read than these two. The side kicks and villains were quirky, but they seemed to be quirky for quirky’s sake. The whole thing was trying really hard to be funny instead of actually being so. From the chapter titles, to events, to characters like a demon named Falafel. All of the elements were there, but to me none of them worked. I doubt I’ll be continuing with this series.

Ian is a trapped Dragon Hunter controlled by the Dark Anzo. Helen is a Dragon Hunter with only one way to save herself from a similar fate. She must pass on her ability and birth right to one who will continue to rally for GOOD. Of course the one fit for this undertaking is her OCD half-sister Veronica. This is a fun story of heroes, spunky characters, and love that will champion over evil. Humor abounded with quirky phrases and friends that excel as brave sidekicks. MacAlister heats up the pages with a HEA romance. Look forward to more of this series. No Cliff hangers. "A copy of this book was provided by Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

I have been a fan of this author for years, and I’m always excited when she starts a new series. I haven’t been as up-to-date as I could be with her writing as I read so many authors, and I jumped at the chance to read this book. Now I must confess to being a little conflicted about rating this book. I found it to be well-written, have an interesting plot, and for the most part I really enjoyed the characters. However, I found Veronica a little off-putting. I love that she had an unusual quirk, but she was so annoying about everything. And, while I really liked her love interest Ian, I didn’t feel much chemistry between them, probably because I found Veronica a little immature. So, with those things in mind, I did enjoy this book, but I did have a couple minor issues, but I still overall recommend it! I was provided the e-book which I voluntarily reviewed.

Veronica James, had no idea that her dying, half-sister Helen, was anything, but human, until she turned her into a dragon hunter. Not only did the flesh-tearing bite send Veronica’s OCD into overdrive, it hurt, a lot. Her half-sister did apologize, but still. Although Helen was weak and dying, she was able to pass, onto Veronica, her first mission as a dragon hunter. She was to save a battered woman with two children, from harm. The assignment sounded simple enough, especially, with Veronica’s newly acquired dragon abilities and sword. The problem was, however, that Helen died before telling her who the woman was. In addition, to that important information tidbit, Veronica didn’t have a clue about being a dragon hunter. She also, unfortunately, left her sword in the alleyway where Helen died. When Veronica went to retrieve the forgotten sword, she found another dragon hunter, Ian Iskandar, stealing it. Veronica didn’t know at the time, that the dragon hunter she was fighting, would become the love of her life and mentor. Ian Iskander had a mission to accomplish. Unfortunately, it involved Veronica James, the battered woman Veronica was trying to save, and Anzo, the demon lord he was bound to. Ian tried not to fall in love with Veronica, because not only would his crazy complicated life become impossible, it would be dangerous for Veronica. I thoroughly enjoyed this humorous and engaging book. The characters are colorful and quirky, the dialogue witty, and the crazy situations, very funny. I especially enjoyed the hysterical banter between Veronica, and the dragon hunter, who stole her heart, Ian. If you enjoy, humorous paranormal romance novels, you’ll love, Memoirs of a Dragon Hunter. Thank you, Forever (Grand Central Publishing) and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

I love all the things Katie MacAlister. That being said I was thrilled to start a new series by this author. Memoirs of a Dragon Hunter takes a young woman with OCD and germaphobia and turns her into a Dragon Hunter, No she doesn’t hunt dragons she hunts demons but enough about that. How is she supposed to hunt demons when she can’t squash a spider? Well with the help of hunky Dragon Hunter Ian Iskander of course. Ian has issues too. He is part demon and his chain is being held by an even worse demon. This is a quirky fun and at times laugh out loud tale of love, laughter and dragons. I love that the characters aren’t perfect and am excited to see where this series goes.
