I adore - ADORE - the Kate Daniels series, but I'll admit I was a little worried about it losing it's spark now that our heroine and hero are all loved up. There was nothing to worry about, the book is fantastic. I devoured it in a day and it was so emotionally draining that I was left exhausted by the end.

***** beware spoilers ahead *****

The book is set away from Atlanta for a change, so not every regular character has a big part and we are also introduced to new characters, but the synopsis probably gives a better outline than I can.

Kate and Curran's relationship is believably put under strain (a difficult manouver for the authors to pull off convincingly) and not only did I believe it as a reader, I FELT it. Warning bells went off in my head before they did in Kate's and I shared the feelings of disbelief, loss and humiliation. As a reader they took me from a place of being 100% confident in a Kate/Curran HEA and turned that belief on it's head - not an easy task! I love Curran, but there were times in this book I could have cheerfully strangled him... Luckily it's impossible to stay angry with the Beast Lord.

The story arc is drawing to a close and so it's no great surprise that we meet Hugh again... but how we meet him is ;) Some VERY interesting developments on this front and there were times he absolutely stole the show. The big bad is looming on the horizon and we really start to appreciate how momentous Kate's task is. She felt very human in this book.

Last but not least, there was the unexpected death of a much beloved character - I'll admit it, I cried. Like I said at the start of my review, emotionally draining stuff.

It is important to note that these books are written for a specific audience. I am fairly confident 40+ year old single males are not what the publishers, or probably the authors, are aiming for. As such please take this review in that context.

I have loved the Kate Daniels series since the first book and my addiction has grown with every passing novel and short story.

I do love urban fantasy but I tend to dislike most paranormal romance novels that focus on romance or sex instead of the story.

For the first time in the series it felt like I was reading a paranormal romance rather than an urban fantasy action novel. I sensed the relationship between Kate and Curran was the main focus. In the previous novels their relationship has grown and developed in spite of the story, either comically or epically. I am hoping for a return to violence and less angst in the next in the series. Whilst this is not my favourite in the series it is still very good and a worthy continuation. There is also now a real feeling that Kate and Curran have passed the point of no return and a confrontation with her father is now inevitable. There is still plenty of action and there are several action segments that were simply fantastic plus there is a great reference to David Eddings to watch for.

Overall, if you have read the others in the series you are already, like me, addicted. This is still my favourite series and Kate is still my favourite heroine.

OK, there's a kick-ass heroine with a secret who is in a love/hate relationship with the leader/member of the local shapeshifters or vampires or other supernatural beasties. So far so conventional in the world of Urban Fantasy. There are dozens of books with variations on that theme out there, aping the success of the early Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton. Many have gone the 'relationships' route with the lead characters agonising over their love life, including Hamilton herself in her later Blake books. For me, most end up too Mills & Boon with little sense of danger or scary otherness in the supernatural bad guys or good guys. Enter Ilona Andrews, whose Kate Daniels series takes the genre's cliches and gives them a right kicking. Yes, the Kate Daniels character has a secret (she's the sole surviving child of the first vampire king); she's kick-ass to the max; she's Consort to the local Beast Lord of Atlanta - all cliche boxes ticked. But the husband-and-wife duo behind the Ilona Andrews name tie all that to tight plots and visceral action with believable characters and vitally, that shivery alien otherness required in the supernatural critters good and (especially) bad. The vampires will actually kill you; the werewolves regard you as a snack and the Kate Daniels character is as hard-edged as any of them. Magic Rises is an extremely satisfactory entry into the series with Kate, Beast Lord Curran and a motley crew of shapeshifters heading to Middle Europe to act as mediators in a territorial dispute. They know it's some kind of trap - why do the European supernatural tribes want their US cousins to intervene? But the reward is the medicine which stops shapeshifter children from potentially going insane at puberty.Read more ›

If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. The book is incredible, the story line pulls you in from the start, the characters are well written and thought out, and it's one of the few books that's written by two authors that I've read that doesn't feel like two authors, it's so smooth. The male characters are obviously written by a male, as you really do feel that you are seeing it from a male's point of view, not what a woman thinks a man is thinking. And the female characters are really well written to, but none as good as the lead character, Kate. She is a great heroine, amazing sense of humour that has me laughing out loud at certain points. She's also not overly perfect as a lot of heroines lately seem to be, so it makes it easier to empathize with her.

If you've read all the books til now, like me, then reading this is frustratingly great. The actions of the characters frustrates because you don't understand why because you and they should know better!

There are also several shocks and twists in the story, and I refuse to write more about it so as not to give any spoilers. Suffice it to say it's great to have Kate back (wasn't a big fan - although still enjoyed it of book 5 - Gunmetal Magic) and to know they've been given the go ahead by their publishers for many more books, as it was originally going to end at book 7 and to think no more Kate and her world after that, is great news.
