Publisher's Summary

From award-winning author Ilona Andrews, an original novella set in the New York Times number-one best-selling Kate Daniels world and featuring fan favorites Derek, Curran, and Kate's very independent ward, Julie.

Scarred, solitary Derek Gaunt has separated from his Pack and is truly a lone wolf. With no family, he answers to no one but is fiercely loyal to a chosen few. So when several of those close to him are murdered, he'll stop at nothing to hunt their killer through the magic-drenched streets of Atlanta.

Never one to be left on the sidelines and equally determined - some might say stubborn - Julie Lennart-Olsen soon joins in his pursuit, and what began as revenge turns into a race to save the city. Their search pits them against powers they never imagined and magic so old, it predates history. It may cost Derek his life, but there are things for which even he would risk everything.

    My Review:
    Overall: 4.5
    Performance: 4.75
    Story: 4.25

    Ooh, I cannot express just how excited about this novella. It promises good things to come in this world and I like the hints that are here. Derek and Julie....OMG, YES!!

    This is a really short novella, but there is so much goodness throughout it. Hints at what might be to come. Derek is 20. Julie is 16. YES, I do like where this is going. If you are a fan of the Kate Daniels world and like me...sad about the upcoming end to that series...then you simply MUST read this one. That way you can be just as excited as me!

    Loved this...and it had an interesting story, too. Like I said...just a lot fit into really very few words. Fantastic!!

    I Don't like the reader on this one. Too flat compared to the rest of the series

    "good story bad voice work"

    The voice performer has to have been the worst I have ever heard. The story was OK but it might have been better if a computer would have read it. There would have been more emotion.

    "Very short, short story (2hrs 1min)"

    Liked it, but feel like it should have been more clear that it was a short story. Just Julie and Derek, no Curran or Kate really. A little random.

    "Great book from Kate Daniel's universe"

    Derek and Julie get their own story! It's told from Derek's point of view so we also get a male narrator (instead of Renee Raudman who I really like) who captures the spirt of Derek really well in my opinion. I really enjoyed the story and hope there are more to come!

    "Good writing poor narration"

    The quality of Ilona's writing is apparent. The narrator sounds as though he's stuck in a dime store crime novel set in the 1940's.

    "Love Ilona Andrews, but the narration was monotone"

    Great story, narration was just too level. Nice voice but no soul. Wanted emotion and passion/despair/happiness/despiration/something that separated one paragraph from the rest.

    Story
    "One does not start a series in the middle."
    What made the experience of listening to Magic Stars the most enjoyable?

    Sure, It says Book 1. But, no, it is a spinoff. Did I read the start of the series? No. Of course not. Now to find it.

    "Disappointing"

    I was disappointed in this novella. It reminded me of fanfiction written by someone who just lives fight scenes. There was little character work or evidence of the humour that pops up in the full length books (send those kittens to Jim to train,,,). Perhaps I'm just so used to Renee Raudman's reading that by now those ARE the voices but I found Jeffrey Kafer's reading very hard to listen to. He uses the same intonation on every sentence:
    Monotone for the first part, then a distinctive drop in pitch on the last words of the sentence. There was no difference in tone no matter what the subject of the sentence, and in the end that's all I was hearing. I will stick with Raudman in the future, even with the odd accents she uses.

    "Too violent"

    This book was just one violent scene after another without much else to offer. The descriptions were so vivid that I was grossed out.

    "Short but sweet"

    Oh Audible I adore thee! Please, Oh Please, can we have the rest of the series on UK audible?

    Falls between Book 9 and 10 of the Kate Daniels series. We see Derek take most of the lead in this new series from two of my most favourite authors.

    Well narrated, perfect tone for Derek.

    "Magic Stars Grey Wolf book 1"

    I enjoyed the first Grey Wolf book. The narrator did very well and was a good choice for Derek's book. I love all of the Ilona Andrews books so its great to have side stories for each of the characters. thank you
