Description

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.

book 2, awsom

Magic Burns

    Book 2 in the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrew is Magic Burns. In this book Kate, the bad ass living weapon, aliens herself with the Pack facing an old Russian god. Who want to use the magic from something called a "flair", to gain life in the world. With plans of unleashing hordes of water demons to devastate mankind.

     In this book we are introduced to Julie. A malnourished 13 year old whose mother is missing. Kate learns that Julie's mother was part of a trio of renegade witches who inadvertently summoned the wrong god. Without giving too much away Julie is orphaned and becomes Kate's ward. 

    We also see the relationship between Kate and the Beast Lord Curan grow in its unique, complex and funny way. 

     This is my second time, dear readers, enjoying this book. I found it just as captivating as the first. The first time several books were lent to me. The books have been read and returned. I enjoyed them so much that Ilona Andrews has become one of the authors for me to collect.

     The book's are fantastic. The audiobooks are just mind-blowing. Renee Raudman really does bring this book to life. She has become one of my top favorite narrators. I am looking forward to hearing her read these stories as much as the story itself. 

     As ever and always I want to thank everyone involved in the creation, publication, production, distribution, and supporting both the written and audiobook format.

Yours

So good!

I had issues with the first book, but this did not deter me from checking out book 2. People love this series and so I decided to give the series one more chance and since I had my monthly freebie from Audible, I decided to get this one.


Kate is a mercenary who cleans up after magic goes wrong. Well, this time a tide of magic is coming that will boost everyone's powers. She has to retrieve a set of stolen maps that was stolen from the Pack. Well...nothing can be simple or easy. She has to deal with a lot in this one.


I'm actually liking Kate. I wasn't a huge fan in the last one, but we get to understand her more. Personally and her powers. We got to see more of the world and it connected a lot of dots for me. I'm slowly liking Curran...a bit. He's still an asshat, but I understand him more now.


This was SO much better than the first one. I could hardly step away and turn off the audiobook. I had to listen to more. I was hooked from the first page. The narrator was really, really good so I think this helped me like the story and characters more. The writing and the narration were amazing.


I do want to see what happens next, but I was content on how they ended this book. No cliffies. Just some promise and a question. I am curious, but I don't feel forced...which is a huge plus and the way to end a book in a series.


So yessssss, if you did not like book 1, do not stop. Read or listen to book 2. So good. I'll stamp this with 5 stars. I had zero issues.

"Glad you made it... Sike!" - The Beast Lord

I like the way the romance in this series is developing. Such a good pace. Not the instant, love at first sight type crazy stuff. Instead, I think we are going to get to see a real journey of two people learning to love each other.

One thing about Kate Daniel's so far is that she isnt tormented by being a kick-butt chick. So many female characters are weighed down by authors who want a kick-butt character but are too distracted by making her fit into a female heroine box. Girls can be bad. Females can be fierce. Chicks can be cruel. We dont fit into boxes.

The world building for this begins to make more sense to me in this one. I sorta kinda wasnt sure in the last book, but I get the whike Tech/Magic world now. Not until this book did I fully understand the whole "The People" thing too. The vampire section of the first book just didnt hit the A
-Ha button for me either. If you are like me and didnt a bit more explanation then you'll get that in Book 2.

There is something suspicious about Crest wanting to marry such a submissive shapeshifter... if they've been engaged for two months and it's been 4 months since book 1 then they had only known each other 2 months before getting engaged.

A sad thing about this is that I'm half way through the next book while writing this review. This means I wont have time to review them all. It also means they are so good I cant wait to start the next one.

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.

My yearly go to book series

I can’t even explain how much I love the main character Kate. Unlike most main female characters of novels in this genre she’s extremely easy to like and root for, she’s sassy but not a brat and tough but still has a heart and normal emotions. This is the book that introduces Andrea Kate’s much needed female friend and also the book with one of my favorite endings. I’ve read this series probably 3 or 4 times already just waiting for Ilona and hubby to put out a new one. I know this part of the series is over but I can’t wait for more!
