*REVIEW* Magic Bleeds


Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren’t for the magic. When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it rose.

Kate Daniels works for the Order of the Knights of Merciful Aid, officially as a liaison with the mercenary guild. Unofficially, she cleans up the paranormal problems no one else wants to handle—especially if they involve Atlanta’s shapeshifting community.

When she’s called in to investigate a fight at the Steel Horse, a bar midway between the territories of the shapeshifters and the necromancers, Kate quickly discovers there’s a new player in town. One who’s been around for thousands of years—and rode to war at the side of Kate’s father.

This foe may be too much even for Kate and Curran, the Lord of the Beasts, to handle. Because this time, Kate will be taking on family...

Wow... incredible... awesome... there are really no other words. This latest installment of the Kate Daniels Series was everything I had hoped it would be. And much, much more!

This book follows along as a new player comes to town, intent on destroying Atlanta. Kate is thrust into the middle of the action (as usual) and man, is there some action! This book is action PACKED and each scene is more emotional and riveting than the last. I literally had a hard time putting the book down because there weren't a lot of breaks in the action. And while that can sometimes make a book exhausting to read, not in this case. Each scene was written so well and the story was so compelling, you didn't want it to end.

In addition to the adrenaline of heart-pumping action scenes, this book was compelling because we got another glimpse into Kate's family... and the horror within it. Roland has remained a mystery to us, but getting to see the antagonist in this book, someone related to Roland and Kate, gives us an idea of just how awful and intimidating he is likely to be once he makes his appearance.

And of course... there's The Beast Lord. Can enough be said about Curran? His magnetism and allure jump off the page and ensnare you. I challenge you to read these books and NOT fall for him. It will not happen. I really don't want to spoiler anyone... but let's just say that Kate and Curran finally make a decision about their feelings for one another. A decision that creates so much heat, I could almost feel it radiating off the pages. RAWR. If you're a fan of them, you will NOT be disappointed.

So... if you've been reading this series, you NEED to read this book. It was my favorite in the series so far and that is saying something. These books are highly addictive and the writing and story keeps getting better and better. If you haven't checked this series out, Magic Bites is the first one. It took me a bit to get hooked, but once that happened, I haven't looked back. Enjoy! Happy Reading! *XOXO*

Good review, girl! So right about Kate and Curran--all that build up, and it wasn't the least bit disappointing.

I was stunned at the action, too. So much fighting! But it was all important and I loved every single scene. I'm ready to give Ilona and Gordon some sort of award for Best Fourth Book in a Series EVER.
