Audie Award Nominee, Paranormal, 2013
After being kicked out of the Order of the Knights of Merciful Aid, Andrea's whole existence is in shambles. She tries to put herself back together by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend. When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano-the male alpha of the Clan Bouda, and Andrea's former lover-die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate. Now she must work with Raphael as her search for the killer leads into the secret underbelly of supernatural Atlanta. And dealing with her feelings for him might have to take a back seat to saving the world.

I love this writer team. I love the series. They call this book a spin off because it does not feature the main romantic couple from the other books, but for those who have read any of the books after book 1, these are characters who have constantly been there and have independent, unique, and non-flattened personalities. This book is simply another great example of the solid writing style I expect from this author.
As for the reading, I enjoyed the entire performance. I love the consistency of having the same reader throughout the series. There is a wholeness, a consistency, with the performances that makes it easy to want to listen to the whole series everytime I think about listening to one of the books.
I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!
Gunmetal Magic is a fun journey. Andrea Nash is hired to investigate some pack deaths. To investigate the murders, Nash must interact with Raphael. Some of the truly great characters in this series such as Barabas, Roman, and Aunt B also return. If you like other books by these writers, you will like this book, but I do not suggest starting the series with this book. You should read the Kate Daniel's series first to get full enjoyment out of this book. Renée Raudman is still great.
This was a great book, but buy it through ITunes not through Audible as the Audible one is missing the free novella - Magic Gifts.
Ilona and Gordon Andrews are fantastic story tellers. I just reread every book they've written but had missed this one. What a great tale for Andrea and Raphael. I loved seeing the beast lord and Kate again and rally for the Bauda's kick azz attitudes. Shape shifters and magic combust in this tale but I could not put it down. Bravo!
I don't like to compare books but love the premise of this reality of magic and tech. Andrea and Kate have great advantages with multiple skill sets, a must for their world.
I love her! She has a different voice for everyone of Ilona Andrews books that she narrated.
Both. I am just way to vested in the characters Ilona Andrews creates and I adore Aunt Bea.
The Kete Daniels series just gets better and better. This story is about Kate's best friend Andrea. I love how Ilona Andrews kept this story within the Kate series but separate as well. As the rest of the series, it is has it all - action, humor, romance and a great story line. I've already listened to it twice!
Wish the description would have stated this was at least the second book in a series. If it is not p, it felt like it. While it stands on its own, their are references to the past that seem to be from a previous book. Otherwise a enjoyable book and good narration.
