This series is addictive.

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 ( )

I can't give you the white picket fence, and if I did, you'd set it on fire.

Oh Kate.

One of the worldbuilding aspects I've been loving the most about this series is the Pack. Rather than focusing on werewolves as just about every other urban fantasy seems to do, the Pack has a huge variety of were... things. Among the major characters alone, we have werelion Beast Lord Curran, werejaguar Jim, head of security, a whole pile of wonderful werehyenas, and werebadger doctor Doolittle[^wow]. On top of that, you can be a werewolf, a wolfwere, or a beastkin (descendant of a were). Craziness.

But that's not it. All of the different kinds of weres have different courtship rituals. With Kate having the hots for Curran (and it's mutual, oh so mutual), she has to bend enough to ask what werecats do. Apparently? Pranks. Oh, it's wonderful.


“The phone rang. I picked it up.

“Are you sitting down?” Curran's voice asked.

“Yes.”

“Good.”

Click.

I listened to the disconnect signal. If he wanted me to sit, then I'd stand. I got up. The chair got up with me and I ended up bent over my desk, with the chair stuck to my butt. I grabbed the edge of the chair and tried to pull it off.

It remained stuck.

I would murder him. Slowly. And I'd enjoy every second of it.”


And that's not even the main plot... In that we get terrifying virulent magical diseases (to the point that they try to get up and slither around), a supposed-to-be-impossible varieties of undead, and a big bad thousands of the years in the magic... who just so happens to be Kate's aunt. Oh this world is getting big and terrifying. It's wonderful.

And Kate and Curran finally hook up! YAY! A long time coming, which makes it feel all the real. It's certainly one of the more explicit scenes I've seen in urban fantasy (yes, I know it gets far worse/better than this, but I've not read it). So if explicit sex is something you avoid, there is a page or two to skip. You have been warned.[^spoiler]

Overall, this series just keeps getting better and better. There are so very many ways this series could crash and burn, but I just keep getting more and more excited. Onwards!

[^wow]: I just made the connection. I know. That's hilarious.

[^spoiler]: Yes. I know that the spoiler tag is pretty obvious given the context. Worth it for the explicit warning? ( )

~ 5 Magic Bleeds Stars ~

HAWT DAME! AMAZING! Another winner in the Kate Daniels series.

We are thrown back into Atlanta and a new threat that will expose Kate even more to those she never wanted to find her.

Emotional turmoil & revelations happen in Magic Bleeds. We have relationship issues, hard chooses that will change everyones futures, and a big mystery to solve. If you don’t know by now I am a FAN of the Andrews team and LOVE this series. It has everything an Urban Fantasy needs, action, adventure, a kick-ass heroine, fantastic world building, amazing secondary characters, and so much more.

HAWT Dame! Yep, Kate and Curran’s relationship explodes in this novel in so many ways. Andrea and Raphael end up imploding (big rift) between them and that relationship was looking so good too. Someone from Kate’s bloodline makes a very big and dramatic entrance into her life and we learn so much from this mysterious person. Last Kate has some very hard chooses to make and one that will affect her deeply and change her future.

Magic Bleeds is a book that will take you away with non-stop action, pulling you into a world full of mystery, magic and so much more. Once I picked this book up I could not put it down and then I had to go and start the next book. Must read series!

Audio: The audio is well worth it. Love listening to the Kate Daniels series.

For a series that's fairly clearly done on power escalation, this is probably the first time I've found that reasonably believable. And I'm extra chuffed that while I don't agree with the choices made, they are thought through, and owned when they go wrong. ( )

No matter how carefully I patted the chopped apples into place, the top crust of my apple pie always looked like I'd tried to bury a dismembered body under it.
