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 ( )

Norse and Hindu mythology (on top of what all we've had before)! Magical gladiator fights TO THE DEATH! Giant fight scenes! ACTUALLY LEARNING WHAT'S UP WITH KATE'S BACKSTORY!

That's quite a book.

The core of the book revolves around the Midnight Games. Underground tournament to the death with some magical gemstone as prize. The local Pack is banned from participating on account of a rogue werebear, only brought down years ago by Curran (yes, that Curran), so of course they're involved. It's a fascinating way to introduce the more dangerous aspects of various magical baddies and force Kate into a few decisions she's probably going to regret. There's a good amount of gruesome, if that's not your thing (or if it is I guess).

And that ending. Oh, things are going to escalate...

On top of that, it's funny. It's not

Seven pairs of glowing eyes stared at me: four green, three yellow. Judging by the glow, the shapeshifter crew hovered on the verge of going furry. One of their own was dead and they were out for blood. I kept my tone light. “You fellows ever thought of hiring out as a Christmas lights crew? You’d make a fortune.”

And then the twist of Order co-worker Andrea? Plus Raphael's wooing thereof? That's cute in a weird sort of way.

Finally, it's kind of amazing that Kate and Curran have yet to end up together. The tension between those two is... intense.


“Kiss me and I'll kill you,”I warned.

“It might be worth it,”he said softly.


Take note other writers: that's how you build up a relationship (even if the both of them are the next best thing to insane). We'll just have to see if Andrews can stick the landing. ( )

~ 5 Magic Strikes Stars ~
(No Spoilers)

A FANTASTIC read in Urban Fantasy where magic, mystery, and technology blend together into a fast-paced action-packed adventure.

Magic Strikes is book three in the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. Their is no rest for Kate and her friends as we are thrown back into Atlanta, with new players wreaking destruction and a highly illegal underground game.

Kate is one kick-ass heroine that I thoroughly enjoy reading. She has heart, a core of steel, and moves to back herself up. I like her character development. In this one she is trying to adjust to having friends and people she cares about. All her life she was told to never make friends or have a relationship, so for her this is new and goes agents what she was taught. The author gives us more information on Kate’s past, who she really is, and why she tries to stay hidden. As things go you can not hide forever and the choices she makes will expose her to her enemies. Her relationship with Curren is also changing. He’s chasing/courting her as a shifter would and she is totally in denial. I am enjoy how this relationship is progressing and developing.

The author introduces us to more characters that we will be seeing in future installments. Saiman makes more of an appearance in the novel and we get one BIG SURPRISE from him. Jim opens up to us a little about his past. This is something unusual for his character, because he is very closed off with everyone. Last, the author gives us more information about Roland. All the secondary characters are enjoyable and entertaining.

The foreshadowing in Magic Strikes is out of this world and the ending was superb. I am hooked and can’t wait to read the next installment. What a wild adventure!

A FABULOUS read! If you enjoy Urban Fantasy, then this series is a must read. The Andrews team have created a unique in-depth world full of mystery, magic and technology blended together for an action-packed non-stop adventure.

Audio: This is still one of my favorites in the series. I love the Midnight Games. The audio is outstanding. I love listening to the Kate Daniels series.

I have a superior reaction time. That was why although I shot out of my chair, jumped onto my desk, and attempted to stab the intruder into my office in the throat, I stopped the blade two inches before it touched Andrea's neck. Because she was my best friend, and sticking knives into your best friend's windpipe was generally considered to be a social faux pas. (chapter 3)
I gave him [Saiman] a smile. I was aiming for sweet, but he turned a shade paler and scooted a bit further from me. Note to self: work more on sweet and less on psycho-killer. (chapter 14)
[Kate continues to describe the outfit she's wearing to pick up Julie at her school]

The cloak coupled with a black leather vest made me look suitably menacing. All that was missing was a giant neon sign with rotating sparklers proclaiming HARD CASE. LINE TO GET YOUR ASS KICKED FORMS TO THE RIGHT. (chapter 21)
