Product Description

From the Back Cover

Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren't for the magic. When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it rose.
 
Kate Daniels works for the Order of the Knights of Merciful Aid, officially as a liaison with the mercenary guild. Unofficially, she cleans up the paranormal problems no one else wants to handle--especially if they involve Atlanta's shapeshifting community.
 
When she's called in to investigate a fight at the Steel Horse, a bar midway between the territories of the shapeshifters and the necromancers, Kate quickly discovers there's a new player in town. One who's been around for thousands of years--and rode to war at the side of Kate's father.
 
This foe may be too much even for Kate and Curran, the Lord of the Beasts, to handle. Because this time, Kate will be taking on family...
 

"Fans of Carrie Vaughn and Patricia Briggs will appreciate this fast-paced, action-packed urban fantasy full of magic, vampires, [and] werebeasties."--Monsters and Critics
 
"Splendid...an edgy, dark fantasy."--Patricia Briggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author
 
"A new take on the urban fantasy genre, the world Kate inhabits is a blend of gritty magic and dangerous mystery."--News and Sentinel

About the Author

Ilona Andrews is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. "Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.)

Gordon and Ilona currently reside in Portland with their two children, three dogs and two cats. They have co-authored two series, the bestselling urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and romantic urban fantasy of The Edge.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Magic Bleeds picks up three months after the events of Magic Strikes and Kate is deeply troubled. She's devastated after the dinner between her and Curran goes badly to say the least. She's left angry and broken inside and tries to deal with it by lashing out at the world and throwing herself into her work at the Order. After a hard day, Kate is landed with a petition from the owners of a bar called the Steel Horse -- a kind of neutral territory that exists between the Pack and the People. Upon arrival, Kate finds that the Steel Horse has come under attack by a being who can cause diseases to come alive. Someone this powerful could easily cause a pandemic unless they're caught. Fast. Not your typical bar brawl... Kate relentlessly pursues the case and it's not long before she crosses paths with the Pack and the source of her pain. Curran.

Magic Bleeds was simply fantastic. There's plenty of tense action and the dark atmosphere retains its intense grip on the series. Atlanta is freezing and Kate is reflecting the weather, because she's a brewing maelstrom of bitter emotion inside. It was so satisfying to sit back and immerse myself in Kate's gritty and violent world once again. It's my favourite series so I've been anxiously anticipating this book for a long time now. The plot is intricate and cleverly thought out, with the themes of the book mirroring the emotional arcs of the characters. This book is ultimately about family. Those you choose and those you don't. It sends a strong message that you can't help who you're born to, but you can help who you become and choose those who go on that journey with you. Kate always had a very direct purpose in life. She thought she knew who she was, she sees herself in the proverbial mirror only to realise she's become something else.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

24 of 26 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 May 2010
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kate Daniels has had some measure of stability throughout the series, but all that goes straight down the toilet in "Magic Bleeds." Ilona Andrews' fourth book focusing on the magical merc is a harrowing experience from beginning to end, filled with gruesome action, feisty romance, and a nearly unkillable enemy. In other words, it's finger-gnawingly brilliant.

Atlanta is being hit by a series of impossible attack -- a werecoyote is eaten alive by a magical strain of syphilis, the Casino is attacked by a pyromancer, and the Guild's founder turns inside out from magic cholera. Every major power in Atlanta is on red alert, but Kate is having some troubles figuring out who's responsible, since the culprit's appearance seems to change every time he/she attacks.

And after a disastrous dealing with Saiman, she discovers the true identity of the "Steel Mary" who is quietly attacking the People, the Pack and the Guild -- a supernatural horror from the earliest days of human civilization. Even worse, it has a personal connection to her. As the city is ravaged by one supernatural attack after another, Kate, Curran and her allies must enter a battle that they may not be able to win.

It's not quite Jim Butcher's "Changes," but "Magic Bleeds" takes virtually everything in Kate Daniels' life and turns it on its head -- she suffers some devastating losses, makes some important personal choices, and is now in more danger than ever before. Some is good, some is bad -- but Kate's life is irrevocably changed in almost every way.

In fact, Andrews sticks the main plot on the backburner for awhile so some attention can be paid to the relationship between Curran and Kate.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kate Daniels is sent to investigate a fight at the Steel Horse, a bar in the area bordering the territories of the shapeshifters and the vampires. Not exactly a top notch tourist spot, but a regular local hangout. What she finds when she arrives is magic in a form she's never encountered before. It takes a lot of investigating to find that this magic is worked by someone every bit as powerful as Kate is herself. The bad news is, Kate has stumbled upon a relative of hers and only one of them can survive in the crumbling Atlanta that remains since the war between magic and technology started. If Curran (Beast Lord of Atlanta) hadn't stood her up for their dinner date Kate would gladly call on him for help with this problem. As it is, she might just kill him the next time she sees him.

I would just love to meet Kate Daniels. Ilona Andrews continues to write Kate in such a realistic way that I feel I could actually talk to her, argue with her, kid around with her, but never, ever fight with her. What makes this series of stories so outstanding for me is the absolute humanity I see in these characters. And since some of them are only partly human, that's quite a feat for these authors. I enjoyed the added twist of having one of Kate's blood relatives show up here. All through the previous three books we have been teased with references to Kate's blood and shown to what extraordinary lengths she will go to keep her blood from falling into the wrong hands. Well, now we understand why. I applaud the way the personalities of Kate and Curran have been blended, shaped and molded to allow these two incredibly strong characters to have a relationship that feels real and right. I know that this couple will only become more complex and interesting as their bonding solidifies.
