The Unbearable Lightness of Dragons by Katie MacAlister

The Unbearable Lightness of Dragons: A Novel of the Light Dragons is the latest Katie MacAlister installment in the Light Dragon series.  Isolde has a lot going on.  She is still trying to recover her dragon memories, get the weyr to call off the war against Baltic, have the interdiction lifted from her magic and figure out what on earth the First Dragon wants her to do for him.  Along the way, she's charged with rescuing the half-dragon granddaughter of the Arch Mage and plots with Aisling and May to release one of Baltic's lieutenants from the weyr's custody.  However, her seemingly unrelated tasks are beginning to add up to some answers about her past, Baltic, Konstantine and the First Dragon. 

The Unbearable Lightness of Dragons: A Novel of the Light Dragons is the second in the Light Dragons series, and is clearly not meant to be the final Light Dragons book.  Isolde finds a lot more questions than answers in this installment, although some light is shed on her past and her connection to the First Dragon, she is still missing her memories and there are many open issues.  This second book in the series is just as much fun to read as the first, in fact, as all the dragon books by Katie MacAlister.  There is plenty of adventure, intrigue and romance.  Baltic seems to be evolving, as most of the dragons have, into a more modern man capable of allowing his mate a little independence.  I look forward to the next installment of the Light Dragon series.

If you aren't familiar with Katie MacAlister's dragon works, start with You Slay Me (Aisling Grey, Guardian, Book 1).  While technically referred to as the Aisling Grey, Guardian series, this book introduces us to the dragons and provides the basis for both the Silver Dragon series and the Light Dragon series.
