The Kate Daniels series is a series that has consistenlty gotten better and better as it's gone on. Book 2 takes the world and characters introduced in Magic Bites and expands in a big way. We learn a little bit more about Kate's history and motivations. We learn a lot more about the world she lives in and the chaos that constantly just around the corner. We meet a number of new characters and get a little more insight into a few of the main characters from book 1. Overall, the story is well crafted, setting the stage for some big reveals and moments not only in this installment, but in future installments.
I'm visually impaired and I'm adicted to reading! I'm 19, and have been reading since I was 12. I love all things fantasy. Some of my favorite authors include but are not limited too Margaret Weis, Mercedes Lackey, Yasmine Galenorn, Christine Feehan, and many more.
Kate Daniels is a mix of compassion and tough. In this book we get to see more of her caring side, and more of her vulnerability. One of my favorite things about her is that she will go through hell for someone she cares about. She and her world continues to be one of my favorites. Also the narrator is a favorite of mine. She reads at a good speed, and does good accents and emotions for her characters.
Her performance grew on me as the book went on. She wasn't a narrator I clicked with immediately, but by the end she really was Kate's voice.
This was a great second book in a series, building on everything I loved about the first book and rounding out characters and adding new characters. I like the first person narrative style of Ilona Andrews a lot.
I wish u could comment on other peoples comments, add a new dimension on what people write, some reviews deserve more than a 'yes or no'
Ilona Andrews does a great job with most of the books she's written, the concept of magic & how it works in Atlanta was not one I liked, but it was original & the story itself is solid although I could guess what was going to happen thru the entire series after reading book 1, especially involving any love story that might be suggested earlier in the series... I ended up reading the whole series because I wanted to see how it proceeds but after awhile, for a Heroine with so much power & other things I don't want to list because it would be a spoiler, she sure whines... A LOT, & personally I love strong, kick butt female characters. Maybe its the way her personality is but it was too much for me... & the spinoff of one of her closest friends was not a good book in my opinion either, forgot what it was called but u will know it when u see it
It's worth the read if u like Andrews but be forewarned, considering the power Kate has & the situation she always finds herself in I don't think she has anything to whine about & considering she is around werewolves I think that is a strong show of weakness therefore book 1 should have ended with Kate being lunch for someone... that is if they could kill her... but like I said, any Andrews fan will want to check this series out, its not bad its just missing a good narrator & includes too much whine factor
I have a real crazy in love relationship with books!!!
Freakin! Awesome! Baby!
This is not a fair question because it is a real toss up between Kate, Curran, Andrea, and Raphael. I don't know maybe Curran....but I love them all!
Absolutely! Renee is awesome and I absolutely love her work!!!!! One of my favorite narrators ever!!!! Renee you are all of that lol.
Ooh I don't know. Probably every moment she has with Curran. It is always filled with so much intensity!!! Also, the moment with Andrea after the fight and Raphael was holding her....wait no and also the moment Andrea realized who exactly Kate was....Need I go on? I'm going to constantly say awesome as if I'm a 12 year little boy because that is exactly what this book is.
I think my thoughts on this are pretty obvious. If you have not read this series you will be very pleased. I highly recommend these authors and this narrator. Please don't cheat yourself. This is action, hardcore toughness, adventure, mystery, fantasy, and romance all in one. While the story itself is not a romance, Kate's relationship is tied in here, so ladies don't think this book won't be for you. It is a big ball of amazement lol
Did not read print version, I usually only get audio because I drive a truck and listen going down the road
The intro of Julie really added depth to the character of kate.
This book is good fun and will appeal to thos who like the Allie Beckstrom series by Devon Monk.
I am a fan of Dresden, Mercy Thompson, Jane Yellowrock and now this series. They all have their strengths (Dresden is my fav!). The first in this series was so-so but this this book was a thrill ride. Action from start to finish.
Captivating series with a strong heroine.
Captivating series with a strong heroine
The entire text was very powerful.
This is the 2nd book in the series. I found book 1 very graphic, and this book didn't change in that aspect.
The story line is good, enough to keep me listening inspite of all the graphic gore.
