I NEVER write reviews but can't stay quiet any longer about the brilliance that is Gordan and Ilona Andrews. Magic Bleeds, the fourth in the series, grips you from the first page and doesn't let go until the last word. As previously commented this book is more relationship heavy than the others but doesn't detract in any way from the story but enhances it. The characters are wonderfully true to form, flaws and all, more often than not a series can have the heroine/hero changing into something that turns you from admiring them to wanting to strangling them but not in Kate Daniel's world. The action is non-stop and the villain a big surprise(even though I lurk daily on their website, never had a clue)and delightfully engaging. You will laugh, cry and hold your breath in anticipation as you follow Kate throughout her latest exploits. For anyone who has yet to discover this series I truly envy you the hours of entertainment awaiting you. It's rare that a series stays as good and fresh as the first instalment, Kate Daniels books only get better with every new release and now the wait begins for the next adventure.
