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 ( )

“The vampire stared at me, his mouth slack as Ghastek assessed his options. I took a couple of forms from my desk, put them into the vamp's mouth, and pulled them up by their edges.

"What are you doing?" Ghastek asked.

"My hole puncher broke."

"You have no respect for the undead.”


[b:Magic Bites|38619|Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, #1)|Ilona Andrews|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1331612872s/38619.jpg|38381] set up a fascinating world, full of cycles of tech and magic, with a wide variety of weres, mindless vampires controlled from afar

This time around... A young girl to save. Magic flaring stronger than it has for years. Witches. Gods vying for rebirth. More Pack politics.

Good times.

The world building that intrigued me through Magic Bites carries through [b:Magic Burns|1811543|Magic Burns (Kate Daniels, #2)|Ilona Andrews|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1311280284s/1811543.jpg|1810889] in spades, answering a good number of the questions we had, while at the same time expanding things even further. The idea of a near apocalyptic Atlanta, ruined and rebuilt in the presence of cycling magic and tech is so crazy it's wonderful that it works. I really love the feel of this world.

Characterwise, the new street kids Julie (yay) and Red (boo) really steal the show. You really feel for Julie, who's mom is a witch messing with things perhaps best left alone who has gone missing. And while it's really sad her mom doesn't make it in the end, getting a new crazy Aunt Kate seems like an acceptable outcome. Temporary bad(ish) guy Bran is a lot of fun and seems just mad enough to actually be as old as he's supposed to be.

Plotwise, things are fairly straight forward but get absolutely insane. It's interesting to see how the rules of this work and to realize that magic has not been back in the world for *that* long. The characters don't know much more about it than we did.

After [b:Magic Bites|38619|Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, #1)|Ilona Andrews|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1331612872s/38619.jpg|38381], I thought the series was a decent enough plot wrapped around some world building with one heck of a lot of potential. After [b:Magic Burns|1811543|Magic Burns (Kate Daniels, #2)|Ilona Andrews|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1311280284s/1811543.jpg|1810889], this series has the potential to be among my favorite urban fantasy series I've read (right up there with The Dresden Files and Mercy Thompson). It really is that good. Worth a try. ( )

Magic Burns is the second book in the Kate Daniels series and it was a vast improvement from the first book, Magic Bites. This time there was absolutely no confusion on how the world worked. Magic and tech fluctuate with one another to make a very cool backdrop to an alternate Atlanta. But for me, the best parts of this book are the relationships Kate makes.

Outstanding! Great series! Must read! I am enjoying "Kate Daniels" series. In "Magic Burns" you get non-stop Action, Adventure, and growth in characters and relationships.

My god Kate is such a great character. I just love kick ass chicks who don't take crap or let people just walk all over them. Kate is confident, skilled, funny, occasionally lonely, and caring. I love learning about her and seeing the relationship between Curran and her grow into something more. You can tell they will end up together somewhere down the line.

Audio: The audio is outstanding. I love listening to the Kate Daniels series.
