I used to love Katie MacAlister's books, especially the dragon series.
But her usual operus modis of I-can't-tell-you, missed opportunities and mainly misunderstandings is starting to annoy me strongly.
In the Time Thief most of the problems wouldn't be any problems if one or all of the characters would just talk to each other instead of saying "I don't have time now" but have clearly time to kiss and snuggle with each other. It's so silly and I feel cheated out of a proper story line.
I guess that was the last MacAlister book for me, which is a pity as the setting and the characters are indeed interesting and loveable.
