He knew that Kate could have easily been isolated and then killed but he still didn’t feel riss need to warn her so she could be extra careful. There maagic some low points like the weredolphins, I magc really?? With this book the authors showcase their skills in the Eastern European front and we get a bit more fun this side of the trans-Atlantic divide. Not so much with this one. Curran walked past me to Doolittle and handed him a small plastic bag filled with olive-colored paste.

In the middle of it the Keep rose like a grey man-made mountain, an example of what happened if several hundred deeply paranoid and superhumanly strong people got together and decided they needed a safe place to crash.
I ikona her to be publicly humiliated, for Curran to tell her, in front of all of those people that humiliated Kate, that she was a spoiled child who could never even spark a flicker of his interest because he only had eyes for Kate.
Ilona Andrews does know how to write intriguing characters.

Honestly, it’s really got me wondering what’s coming up in future books. Mild spoilers, which are conveniently hidden in spoiler tags, ahead.

An older woman ran toward me through the third floor hallway, her eyes opened wide, her mouth slack.

If anything the books keep getting better as we burrow in to Kate and Curran’s life and watch shit constantly hitting the fan. They have co-authored two series, the bestselling urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and romantic urban fantasy of The Edge. Sure, it would be crushing.

We were just trying to put off the inevitable. After no less than 26 agonizing months, Magic Rises, the long-awaited sixth installment in the Kate Daniels series is finally here. The characters, the world and the story deserve the highest rating, although it I will not read the next Kate Daniels book description nor will I read any reviews.
