"As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers. Since Kate's connection to Roland has come out into the open, no one is safe-especially those closest to Kate. As Roland's long shadow looms ever nearer, Kate is called to attend the Conclave, a gathering of the leaders from the various supernatural factions in Atlanta. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered there, apparently at the hands of a shapeshifter, Kate is given only twenty-four hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she'll find herself embroiled in a war which could destroy everything she holds dear"--… (mere)

3.75 stars.

I didn't enjoy the last two instalments as much as the previous ones, but they are still good books and needed to be read if you want to know what happens next.

My biggest issue is the plot. I found it a bit messy, it flows too quickly and events aren't connected very well, in my opinion.

I also found the meeting with Roland a bit too rushed. We have been heard of the big bad guy since the beginning and I excepted something more.

Plus, there was too little Curran. More Curran, please! :D
The last part, though, contained Curran much enough that I forgive his absence during the first half of the book. ( )

Ilona Andrews is one of my favorite authors and the Kate Daniels series is my favorite of all the books that the husband/wife duo write. The writing style is fast paced and engaging and the characters are completely believable despite the fantastical elements that surround all the books. These books are a must read for me and I eagerly devour them and count the months until the next one arrives. I love that despite the occult and romance leanings of these books there is still a generous dose of humor. I highly recommend the Kate Daniels series ( )

I don't know the English words for this book right now so:

HEFTIG!

Een wervelwind van emoties en actie. Geweldig! ( )

“Fortune favors the brave," I told her. It also kills the stupid, but I decided to keep that fact to myself.

Curran is out of town, so of course things are going to go wrong. Taking a lot of what's been building, between the Pack having troubles with a non-shifter as essentially second in command, the relationship between the Pack and the People, Kate's trouble with Roland and more particularly with Hugh.

Things take a while to really get rolling and it doesn't completely feel like the halves of the story entirely gel together. But in the end, it's still a pretty solid story. Not the best of the series but pretty good and with the first real onscreen appearance of Roland. Things are going to get real. So many expectations... and he ends up even more chilling and human than expected.

And oh man. Slayer gets replaced?! For a non-character character, it's impressive how much I actually felt that.

And then that ending... Curran is going to give up everything he's built for Kate... (although to be fair, I bet he won't mind a little less pressure for a while) That's something.

Random snark of the day:


“ It’s like you had a coming-out party,” Andrea said. “You’ve been presented to polite society, except now everybody wants to kill you.”

“Spare me.”

“Kate Daniels, a debutante.” Andrea grinned.

“It’s not funny.”

“It’s hilarious.” The smile slid off Andrea’s face and she vomited on the snow.

“Karma,” I told her.

(NO SPOILERS)

Kate Daniels is by far my favorite urban fantasy series and I wait for each new volume with such anticipation. By the time I finish any book in the Kate Daniels series I want to start the series all over again.

I knew from the first sentences I was going to love this book. The writing is FANTASTIC pulling the reader into the world and characters. I love reading and watching the characters grow, interact, and the world building is AMAZING. I have been waiting since the begging of the series for the meeting between Kate and her father. Each novel has prepared us little by little for the big day and I was SURPRISED by the turn of events and yet I’m curious to see what the next few novels will present us. I have to say I enjoyed the rendition of who is who at the begging of the book, before we even start the story, we get a little re-cap of the characters we have come to know and love. The journal entry by Barabas was fantastic. As the store progresses we get more things reveled, more danger, loads of action, tension and humor. It was sad to see Curran gone from most of the book, but it was great watching Kate stand on her own. When he does come home we get one hot sexy love scene that made me want to say bye bye Kate I’m taking your man. As for our secondary characters we get to meet a few new ones and revisit with old ones. The hardest part for me as a reader/fan of these books is when one dies off, whether they are a long time character or one we just meet in the book, it is always emotional to see them go. The writing duo-team does a fantastic job getting us hooked on all the characters that when one goes, I feel for everyone who lost their friend, partner, lover, mate ect… As endings go I was rendered speechless. I did not see that twist of events coming.

So yes I am waiting with great anticipation to see what happens next. Never have I read a series that is more about the journey than the actual destination. Urban Fantasy does not get any better then Kate Daniels and I highly recommend picking this series up.

Audio Jan. 2018: The audio is fabulous. It grabs you. For Magic Breaks the first chapter in the audio is the Character List. It's a rundown of who is who, what they are, and what they can do. The second chapter is a short story From The Journal of Barabas Gilliam. Then we have the main story. At the very end of the audio we are treated to another short story/novella called Magic Test featuring Julie looking for a missing student at a school she might attend.
