Publisher's Summary

In the second book in number-one New York Times best-selling author Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series, tempers - and temperatures - are rising!

A mercenary in magic-torn Atlanta who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels has seen it all - and some things she couldn't even have imagined. Normally, waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow like an ocean current. But once every seven years, a paranormal flare comes and brings magic like a tidal wave. Now Kate faces problems on a much bigger scale: a divine one.

When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta's paramilitary organization of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes the stakes. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the first contest in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can't stop their cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive.

These are such great Audible books!

Action, drama, romance, magic, gratuitous violence, shapeshifters, witches and monsters... What else do you need? Oh there’s heroes and heroines too! This series rocks! Excellent delivery by the narrator.

Miscast Narrator

What made the experience of listening to Magic Burns the most enjoyable?

The story.

What other book might you compare Magic Burns to and why?

The Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renee Raudman?

I do not know, but someone else was needed.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Tears.

Any additional comments?

The narrator was not right for this book. She was too breathy with a distressed damsel voice. Kate Daniels is not a damsel and would not sound so whiny. The narrator is also terrible of at delivering Kate's dry humor. I will not purchase the next book in audio format.

Good Continuation

Good Continuation of the story. You get to know the returning characters more and get introduced to new ones. The story keeps you guessing on the ending till everything comes together.

So hooked

Narrator is on point. the author is on point. it's a great story by a great author narrated by a fantastic gal. Book 2 flows seemlessly from Book 1 without you being confused as other books do. you grow to love the characters and I'm nervous to see what will happen next.

great read

Loved this book when reading and when listening to it. I lile hiw the audio version brings a new depth to the characters or new nuances that I missed when reading. I also like how is the same voice actor as the first book.

Great Book Brilliantly Read

Whilst the first book in this series was good - this one is excellent, probably because the scene setting was all done in book 1 this one just kicks off and you are hooked from page 1
Renee Raudmans narration is perfect and I would give it 6 stars if possible

My only moan is the rest of the series is all recorded - for example I can buy book 3 on Audio CD from Amazon UK for £25.00! but its not on Audible - in fact none of the rest of this series is on Audible UK (though all but books 3 and 4 are on the US site) so having to resort to Kindle for the rest which is fine when I have time to sit and read but not so good when I want to listen whilst doing other things.
Also the Narrator is one of those rare ones whose performance is actually better than just reading the book so its a bit annoying.

I wouldn't let it put you off the series though as long as you dont mind reading rather than listening

Wonderful

The magic, mahem and drama. Such graphic descriptions you feel like you are in the book. When is Kate and beast lord going to hook up. Was hoping in this one, hopefully there is a third book in series. Just love narrator
