You will have a much better understanding of how the players all fit together, how the story amdrews works, and what the individual histories are if you begin with Magic Bites. Since this is book four, anything I say from here on out may be a spoiler for books one thru three. Kate Daniels is not your typical girl, but she does share one thing in common with her less kick butt sisters — she hates being stood up.
So when Curran fails to show for their long planned date and then has a third party advise her he is not taking her calls, she trashes wndrews dinner she cooked him. Then she goes back to her life in Atlanta, sparing only a few minutes every hour to loathe him with all her heart. The only thing that makes andreqs feel better are chocolate covered donuts.
Today she is riding back to the office to return a few reptiles to their cages at the Atlanta Center for Mythological Research, carrying a living dust bunny in a cage and sporting jeans gunked up with lizard saliva. It is then she receives a telepathic call from Maxine asking her to handle an emergency. Something is cornered at the Steel Horse, the border bar that sits on the invisible line separating Pack shapeshifter territory from the zone controlled by the People necromancers.
A Pack member has been gruesomely murdered. Worse, someone infected him with some sort of magical disease that is now attempting to spread without its host. Using strong magic to contain it, Kate is able to keep Atlanta from becoming quarantined but her research into just who caused this little disaster leads her to an enemy thousands of years old.
And someone who is unfortunately close to her father, which is bad news for Kate — and the rest of humanity. And Curran may be king of all things furry, but he is certainly not enthroned in her heart at the moment.
One of the great pleasures of this series is the writing style of the husband and wife team who make up Ilona Andrews. I love, love, love the way they can string together a sentence magix have me laughing in the midst of chaos. Narrator Kate has a dry, acerbic wit she utilizes constantly and it makes it a delight to accompany her on her adventures.
And I am endlessly impressed with the world they have created. The magic waves idea is utilized perfectly here to create a unique and very nearly believable urban fantasy. Kate is one of the few really, really kick butt heroines out there.
Magic Bleeds — All About Romance
She is a tough, well trained fighter but she has begun to slowly allow a handful of people in. She has good reason not to trust given her family few people would and a good enough heart not to want to bring others into the mix when the inevitable war between her and her dad takes place. I get why she is a loner, but I like that she has been slowly allowing beeds some human in loose definition of the word connections.
There is a lot of character here and I love the way it is being slowly but thoroughly explored. Curran is an awesome hero. He is your typical alpha control freak but he is also so much more.
He is a qndrews, uber-powerful man who has turned the Pack into a nation within a nation. He respects Kate and her skills enough to both utilize her services and give her the space she needs to be who she is. Maguc with all the love, why not an A?
The situation between Kate and Curran was a complete, unnecessary step backward. It took time to resolve that could have been better spent developing the relationship, not covering ground we had already covered in books one through three. I know I will certainly be following the series into book five and beyond. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
