Magic Shifts had all of the mystery, romance, humor, and action I've come to expect from a Kate Daniels novel. It was superb and one of, if not my favorite of the series so far! Loved it. :)

Far from the land of her birth, Moirin sets out across Tatar territory to find Bao, the proud and virile Ch'in fighter who holds the missing half of her diadh-anam, the divine soul-spark of her mother's people.

But the lovers' happiness is short-lived, for Bao is entangled in a complication that soon leads to their betrayal.

For the second book in the trilogy, Naamah's Curse did a decent job keeping my interest. Even though it didn't do a lot to progress the overall arc of the trilogy, it brought together a plethora of exotic Asian cultures that were a lot of fun to explore. I'm excited to see what the final book has in store.

Seventeen-year-old Anglet Sutonga lives repairing the chimneys, towers, and spires of the city of Bar-Selehm. Dramatically different communities live and work alongside each other. The white Feldish command the nation's higher echelons of society. The native Mahweni are divided between city life and the savannah. And then there's Ang, part of the Lani community who immigrated over generations ago as servants and now mostly live in poverty on Bar-Selehm's edges.

This has to be one of the most unique books I've read in ages! Even though the book is mostly a mystery, it has a lot of character exploration (which was probably my favorite element) and a neat 1920s city setting. I will look forward to continuing on.
