    About Katie MacAlister


    1. For as long as she can remember, Katie MacAlister has loved reading Growing up in a family where a weekly visit to the library was a given, Katie spent much of her time with her nose buried in a book Despite her love for novels, she didn t think of writing them until she was contracted to write a non fiction book about software Since her editor refused to allow her to include either witty dialogue or love scenes in the software book, Katie swiftly resolved to switch to fiction, where she could indulge in world building, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes.Two years after she started writing novels, Katie sold her first romance, Noble Intentions More than thirty books followed during the years after Noble s publication Her novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and placed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists She also writes for the young adult audience as Katie Maxwell, and for the mystery world as Kate Marsh.Katie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and dogs, and can often be found lurking around online.

    1. I love Katie MacAlister and have read every book she s ever written, even those under her Kate Maxwell name I love her humor and characters She really brings you into the book to the point where you can picture the characters and scenes However, this book, though entertaining and enjoyable, just didn t do it for me I m of the exact problem, whether it was almost like a repeat of a book I had already read by her, the plot jumping around a bit much, or that it just wasn t as well developed as the [...]

    3. While I may not be an expert, I can say with complete confidence that the book, Much Ado About Vampires is just one of many paranormal romances that falls victim to bad writing This book is nothing than a self indulgent, masturbatory Mary Sue fantasy dreamed up by an author who likes her men tough, buff, and randy The main character Corazon Ferreira is a dumbed down, sexually starved divorc e who by page 52 has determined that she will have sex with the murderous vampire from her visions This d [...]

    5. Cora and just about all of the female characters were so obnoxious that it was chore to finish reading this book In some ways I get it, the tongue in cheek humor about a Dark One and his quip ready Beloved is supposed to be fast paced They re bouncing around the mortal realm and various dimensions of the immortal one But Cora s habit of calling on Jesus and other spiritual beings was obnoxious as well as her stubborn insistence that she was kick ass, when she wasn t What 30 something sounds like [...]

    10. Well, well, I have mixed feelings about this book I like Alec and Cora was okay a bit annoying , but the story is a bit too corny and cliche and not matured enough or whatever you call a good, thought out and well written story Sometimes I felt like slapping both of them I mean, really In most of the other books the corny stuff isn t that bad, there is lots of it but that s okay because it is somewhat limited and there is good sex and a great story The story here is also good, but I could not en [...]

    11. I discovered MacAllister s Dark Ones series a few years ago and was hooked Her books are about not perfect heroines and their vampires, along with some naughtiness A host of other characters with supernatural abilities are also thrown into the mix Much Ado About Vampires is the 9th in the series While fun and quirky, the story presents as a tired formula Girl meets guy who turns out to be a vampire and only a Beloved can give him back his soul This time around, it is Corazon Cora Ferreira who me [...]

    16. Ich mag die Reihe ja sehr, weil mir der Humor der Autorin unglaublich gut liegt Dieser Teil machte da keine Ausnahme Corazon ist ein neuer Charakter und gefiel mir wieder super Sie kommt durch einen bestimmten Umstand ins Akasha und trifft dort auf Alex Den kennt der Leser der Reihe bereits sehr gut Er wurde ja vom Vampirrat dorthin verbannt Es stellt sich schnell heraus, dass Cora die Reinkarnation seiner damals verungl ckten Seelengef hrtin ist Daher auch der u erst genial gew hlte Titel Beide [...]

    17. Why do I keep reading these They re okay, but they re just nothing special I always feel like I m missing out on key parts of the stories, and I end up having to go back and look for what I missed Then once I get to the end, I realize I didn t actually miss anything at all She just neglected to mention it before Ugh I was beyond confused with Sally I didn t understand how Cora could hate her and then trust her in the same time span, and then say that she was evil too It just makes no sense And h [...]

    21. I was lucky enough to win Much Ado About Vampires through , and I am so glad that I did Much Ado About Vampires was a book that I really wanted to read because I liked the idea of reincarnation being used in the story I have recently read Zen and the Art of Vampires and Crouching Vampire, Hidden Fang where the Alec character was first introduced Alec was a great character that grabbed my interest from the beginning I actually thought he was Pia s hero in Zen until the story turned so I was thril [...]

    22. Die Bewertung dieses Buches ist mir wirklich nicht leicht gefallen, nicht zuletzt, weil mein Lieblingsp rchen Pia Kristoff wieder auftaucht Letzten Endes hat aber u A der Dual PoV, den es in den B chern davor nicht gegeben hat, mich dazu bewogen, 4 statt nur 3 Sterne zu vergeben Ich finde es immer spannend, auch in die Perspektive des Helden und nicht nur der der Heldin eintauchen zu k nnen.Mit Alec hatte ich in den vergangenen B chern ja meine Schwierigkeiten, auch wenn ich seine Motive versteh [...]

    23. I was first introduced to Katie MacAlister and her Dark Ones series through a short story from the book My Zombie Valentine I was impressed with her writing then, and after getting Much Ado About Vampires through first reads, I am hooked on the Dark Ones series Much Ado About Vampires is the ninth book in the Dark Ones series The story is centered around Alec and Cora Corazon Alec is a Dark One vampire who has been banished to the Akasha for killing the woman that accidentally killed his Beloved [...]

    24. I won this book through First Reads program This is also the first book I ve read in the Dark Ones series.Despite the ridiculous title, I managed to I enjoy this book for what it was a fun paranormal read , although I m getting sick of reading about vampires and their soul mates And having the vamp able to read his Beloved s thoughts is not groundbreaking I mostly just found the device annoying since Cora tends to have diatribes inside her head until realizing that Alec can hear every stray thou [...]

    25. This is Book 9 of the series The Dark Ones, but my first to read I did not feel out of the sequence and had no problem with the story, but reading the other books will give a familiar reference to the characters and their place in the plot In this installment Alec a Dark One, gorgeous but disenchanted vampire is willing himself to die, but brought back to life by Corazon also known as Cora , a feeling very unlucky human who ends up in Akasha a limbo place before your final destination is arrang [...]

    26. I find myself needing to hunt down a short story to grasp who the h actually is Am glad that Alex got a HEA, even though I wasn t excessively fond of the 2 parter he was introduced that whole 2 parter thing, plus he and the h in those books were fooling around a bit The heroine, for one so reluctant to accept that she was his Beloved, was downright over the top in her efforts to defend him.This is a general gripe about the world building The author has almost cherry picked amongst the various my [...]

    27. I am so sad to have to report that really I didn t enjoy this book Normally I love Katie MacAlister s books but this one I just could not get into I thave to agree with a few reviews I read here on Cora was just plain ditsy and annoying, her dislike of vampires made NO sense to me at all and her fairly quick 180 on the subject made her seem like she had no standards That s not to say that Alec isn t likable, because he is Alec seems like almost the only one with any sense in the relationship So [...]

    29. I enjoyed this book It is the story of Dark One Alec, introduced in Zen and the Art of Vampires, and Cora, the reincarnation of Alec s Beloved who was killed hundreds of years ago Despite Cora s initial disdain for Alec the two come together pretty quickly Unlike in previous Dark Ones books, not much was made of the joining process itself The focus seemed to be on the outside conlict than on the relationship between Cora and Alex Don t get me wrong, they had good chemistry and there was enough [...]
