Kate Daniels #4
Author: Ilona Andrews
Source: Personal Purchase
Genre: Adult Urban Fantasy
Publisher: Ace (May 25, 2010)
Kate Daniels cleans up the paranormal problems no one else wants to deal with-especially if they involve Atlanta’s shapeshifting community.
And now there’s a new player in town-a foe that may be too much for even Kate and Curran, the Lord of the Beasts, to handle. Because this time, Kate will be taking on family.
This book has me on adjective overload! There are so many more words I could use to describe my thoughts on this book, but honestly, none of them come close to the awesome that this book is.
I have decided that Curran is now to be called the Sexiest Beast Lord or His Furriness instead of plain Beast Lord. His Majesty was one of the best parts of this book. I literally jumped for joy whenever he appeared on the pages and swooned at his sexy form. I wanted to crawl into the pages and pet his fur and distract him away from Kate. Seriously, how can Kate even attempt to deny him? I would have crawled all over him in book one, but the authors wait until book four to give us Chapter 17! I read that chapter three times before moving on to the rest of the book.
In this installment of the series, Kate is up against not only the most powerful enemy yet, but she is also up against her Aunt Erra. That’s right readers — we get to see her go up against her Father Roland’s sister. Erra also happens to bring disease wherever she goes at thinks she can defeat Kate. Be prepared for a blood bath when these two collide several times in the book.
Not only can Ilona Andrews deliver the perfect story of suspense, fantasy, fighting and honor, but the author can also deliver some of the best witty and humorous dialogue throughout the chaos. I found so many quotes in this book that I would love to share, but then I would have to quote the whole book!
I have found this series to be a new favorite of mine and has made me discover that Urban Fantasy can be just as great as other genres. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book and pick up where Magic Bleeds ends.
The phone rang. I picked it up.
“Are you sitting down?” Curran’s voice asked.
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.

“I don’t know your wolves.” I looked at Jim. “Why can’t you go if you’re so concerned?”
He sighed. “Because certain people aren’t altogether rational at the moment. If I came with you, I’d have to answer uncomfortable questions. I ask questions, I don’t answer them.”
“What kind of questions?”
“Why were you in a vehicle with Kate, alone? What were you wearing? What was she wearing? How long were you there? Did you do something or did you talk? What was the nature of your discussion? Could this trip have been avoided?”
I rubbed my face. “So basically you’re scared that His Lordship might get his panties in a bunch?”
