I have found myself hooked on this series, can't wait for the next! Usually by the third book of a series the characters get tiresome, and the story overdrawn, not so with this set although I do not want to wait too much longer for a good roll with the beast king.
Action, romance, and suspence. If you liked the first two books you're going to love this. the story continues to arch and be awesome. nuff said.
Love love love and oh yeah loves this book and series. The sarcasm is right up my alley. The characters are strong and funny. It's like reading a Conan barbarian story but you with extra sci-fi.
A very enjoyable audiobook number 3.
I will get number 4 immediately. Kate Daniels lives in an original space in the fantasy area.

Kate finds herself in the middle of pack business when Derek is tragically hurt. Jim tries to protect the pack behind Curran’s back and there has been a murder. Kate once again puts herself in danger for her friends, as she demands vengeance and tries to protect Curran and his pack. The plot was action-packed as we find ourselves in the middle of the Midnight Games. The games feature a gladiator type arena where shifters and other supernatural creatures compete. The stakes are high and the betting is of the chart. It is also a place that Curran has strictly forbidden any pack involvement with the games. I found myself standing still in the middle of my chores totally caught up in the tale and holding my breath.
Andrews keeps the action at full throttle even as she continues to develop Kate. I loved the softer sides of our snarky heroine. Andrews gives her wings and allows her to fly. It is so impressive. Curran continues to make me swoon. He is a fearless alpha, quick to temper and cocky as hell, but we see his softer side as well. The interactions between him and Kate are positively delightful. I find myself giggling at their banter. His mannerisms and her inner banter are things of pure joy.
Andrews weaved in a little Hindu and some Greek and Norse mythology, which I found fascinating. I love that the tale is grounded more in shifter history with the magic woven into it. We learn more about Kate’s reasons for burning her blood and what she is. Dark, gritty, bloody and heart stopping at times Magic Strikes was perfectly balanced with humor, friendship and snark. The ending was perfect and had me giggling.
This is my favorite book of the series. I have listened to it over 5 times. It has everything in it, action, adventure, comedy and a little romance. I literally was laughing out loud to multiple parts. Highly recommended.
I have to admit that I struggled with the first book but only because I had just come off of Pamela Palmer's Feral Warriors series which had me hook, line and sinker. I liked the plot of the first book but it did not quite engage me as other similar books had done. I listened to the first book and liked it enough to continue with book #2. The second one was better and I became more engaged with the characters and I enjoyed how the story unfolds a little bit of information with each book. Then I bought book #3 and all I can say is that Magic Strikes, struck me with a profound impact. I never imagined how engaging this story would be and how riveting the final battle would be...and oh the ending...let's just say I won't ruin this story for you...but it is so worth your time. If you are like me and wasn't quite sure if this series is worth your money/credits, let me assure you it is money well spent!
Yes. I already have.
The narrator was easy to listen to, but I think she got a little over-dramatic in some places.
There was a lot of fighting in this one so be prepared for a lot of blood and gore.
