Down in Atlanta, tempers — and temperatures — are about to flare…

As a mercenary who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels has seen her share of occupational hazards. Normally, waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow across Atlanta like a tide. But once every seven years, a flare comes, a time when magic runs rampant. Now Kate’s going to have to deal with 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 clan of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes much more at stake. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest — and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the opening gambit in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can’t stop the cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive…

Hmmm I wonder what this Magic Burns book will be about

What?? I mean.. What?? This can’t be right

Why isn’t she being stupid?? Wha- How???

She’s going to fuck up

Any second now

Aaaaany second now


This book is perfect!!

I mean, amIrite? AM-I-RITE???

One thing I love about Ilona Andrews is the fact that she didn’t make Kate a sappy character. Not once did she have a "love" thought about any of the hot dudes in the book. Not once. Sure, she thinks about banging them but that’s the normal thing to do. No unnecessary crap about love at first sight and all that shit means a happier me. Plus her relationship with Curran is so good. I’m enjoying every minute of it. And you know what? They’ll be together in the future (DUH) so seeing how they develop their relationship is so much fun. It’s almost as good as playing Sims 3. But Sims 3 is way better because it makes you god. Being god beats everything else. So nah, close but not close enough!

Speaking of which, wasn’t Ghastek awesome? He’s taking RPG games to the next level. How cool would it be to be able to control your game character in real life? That would be so fucking awesome! What would I do with it? Conquer Earth, of course. Kill everyone who pisses me off. Spy on people. Lurk in dark alleys and scare the shit out of anyone who walks by. And loot everything. I’m the looting type so can’t help myself, sistah!

But back to Kate. I love Kate. I love Kate so much my heart hurts. I love Kate so much I started writing poems just for her. I love Kate so much I started baking cakes for her each morning.

Yes Kate, go samurai on their sorry asses! Yes Kate, give them the middle finger!! Yes Kate, ride your horse into the sunset!!! Yes Kate, spank me one more time!!!!!!

Wait. What?



  1. HAHAHAHA! I adore this series! Kate Daniels is my second all time favorite series, Fever being the first favorite! I mean I love that the heroine isn't dumb, but really tough and bad ass! and just continue to read, the series gets better and better with each book!

    I love that about Kate how at first she doesn't even think about getting with any guys, she just wants to kick butt and do her job and be Kate! I love how Kate's and Curran's relationship progresses through the series though. I think Ilona Andrews write this series perfectly! ;))

    I'm dying b/c the next Kate book doesn't officially come out til 2013! I WANT NOW!!!

  2. WOW! I haven't read this series yet ,,, it sound interesting ,,, may be i should try reading it :)

  3. @Mariya: I'm mad at myself for not reading this sooner!!!! This is 100% my type of series and Kate is my new idol! 2013??? I'm so glad I only read 2 books so far. But I'm sure I'll finish them all by June or something... After that I'll join your misery club :/
