5.0 out of 5 stars Great Alpha female with an attitude 31 July 2011
By Cheryl M-M TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am sure it is the combination of the male/female duo writing couple that make this series of books so good. The fifth book in the Kate Daniels series is once again funny, exciting and a page turner. Kate and Curran succeed in making the pages bristle with electricity. I love the devil may care attitude the main character has, the "yeh I have a big mouth, so what are you gonna do about it?" lifestyle. The complicated rules and regulations of the various shifter breeds amongst the pack and the way Kate always attracts the most trouble with the least possible effort. I hope there will be more books in this series. I highly recommend the author.Magic Slays: Kate Daniels, Book 5

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Don't get me wrong, I do like the Mercy Thompson series, but her last outing disappointed, as the book was basically about her wedding and honeymoon....but there was hardly any romance whatsoever. This book had all I expect from Kate Daniels and a ...romantic Curran.

The blurb itself is as follows: Plagued by a war between magic and technology, Atlanta has never been so deadly. Good thing Kate Daniels is on the job.

Kate Daniels may have quit the Order of Knights of Merciful Aid, but she's still knee-deep in paranormal problems. Or she would be if she could get someone to hire her. Starting her own business has been more challenging than she thought it would be-now that the Order is disparaging her good name. Plus, many potential clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of the Beast Lord, who just happens to be Kate's mate.

So when Atlanta's premier Master of the Dead calls to ask for help with a vampire on the loose, Kate leaps at the chance of some paying work. But it turns out that this is not an isolated incident. Kate needs to get to the bottom of it-and fast, or the city and everyone dear to her may pay the ultimate price...

The blurb is actually a bit misleading, as that's not all that happens in the tale, oh no, there's so much more. Yes there is danger, as always, but not from the usual sources, and what we see is the loyalty of Kate's friends, both from her days before and now that she is Pack. We catch up with Andrea, who has reappeared, but we don't get to find out exactly what went on when she disappeared, and whilst there are hints about her and Raphael and how he is dealing/not with their break-up, hopefully we'll find out more in the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Fabulous 22 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If you love the writings of say Patricia Briggs---if you love action, suspense, shape-shifters and other things that go bump in the nigh. If you love romance, but not of the "bodice ripping" ilk---then this is the series for you. I can't believe that we are going to have to wait so long for the next installment in the Kate Daniels series. Booo! Although we do have Dali and Jim's story coming in Hexed releasing on June 7th.

If you have never read any of these books and are contemplating starting with this one, please don't. You really owe it to yourself to start with the first book Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, Book 1)and if you have a kindle or the app for you computer also make an effort to get "Curran: Volume I (Curran POV) and Fathers and Sons (Curran POV) as well as the novella Magic Mourns: A Companion Novella to Magic Strikes:A Penguin eSpecial from Berkley

Seriously---this had to be the best book so far in this series.

Kate is now fully mated to the Beast Lord and as we know from the last book, out on her own working privately. Trouble comes soon in the shape of an unridden Vampire and soon after goes even more down the tubes with a neat little plot involving a mad inventor, a machine that will bring tech back to the world and a group of men and women determined that magical creatures and all magic should be wiped off the face of the earth.


Kate learns that the life grew up with was NOT what was true and now has to deal with several hard facts about her Sainted Mother and Voron. Kate will also have to deal with a suspicion that Curran may not want her for HER, but what she can do for him and the Beasts.

A side story involving Julie her Ward took my breath away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveted... 26 May 2011
By sharon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is book 5 in the hugely successful series, written by husband & wife team. Wow is all I can say, thoroughly enjoyed this instalment. It had action, love romance, tragedy, dark violent undertones, political drama & a lot of questions are answered regarding Kates ancestors. It's not just Kate & Curran (purrr) who stand strong but the supporting cast like Saiman, Julie, Andrea, the People & a menagerie of others. I was glued, the interplay between Curran & Kate had me laughing at loud, the actual plot sucked me in, it's a humdinger. I really enjoyed it, a definite for all Ilona Andrews fans. Wonderfully written...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Loved it. Usual high standard. 1 May 2012
By John
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was excellent. The characters are very engaging and I loved it. Kate is awesome, as always. What is more to say? If you are reading this then probably you have already read the earlier books. This one is of the same high standard. Maybe not quite as funny, but I loved it none the less. Eagerly awaiting book 6. Please Ilona, hurry!
