Kate is a kick ass warrior with magic blood. Curren is the beast master of Atlanta. They end up fighting in the gladiator games against some really bad ass Hindu god creatures. Good sexual tension between them plus the story is funny as hell with lots of blood and guts mixed in. No pretty vampires or werewolves just monsters fighting monsters
I'm a lover of Anita Blake, Sookie Stackhouse, Mercy Thompson, and Alpha and Omega series and was looking for another series with a strong female character. Oh boy how I have found one! I love this series. It can be slow at times but funny! The Narrator still has issues pronounce common words but I over look that so I can enjoy the story. It gets better and better! Can't wait until the next one!
I am a "Life is Awesome! Strive to be Worthy of it." student of life kind of guy. Feeding on Chaos and Empowering the Good. Group Hug!
Although I am enjoying this series, it starting to feel like it is turning into a detective series instead of a progressive story-line. There is an underlying goal but it is only touched lightly in this book. There is a couple things in this book that throw me off where logic is concerned else I would give it 4 stars. "The Shape Shifter attack on Kate" It wasn't explained fully, it doesn't make a lick of sense, it completely lacks logic, I am betting Ilona Andrews was going a different direction when she was writing this book changed the idea and missed this correction.
First I purchased the book, which was an intense and addicting read. Since I'm also on an audiobook kick I purchased the audio version. It does not disappoint I can't wait for the next one.
be humble for you are of the earth, be noble for you are made from stars.
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.
