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.

Magic Burns ...slow

Second book in the series is still a slow burn, adding more long-term characters like Andrea and Julie, building on returning characters and relationships like Kate and Curran, and setting the stage for the ultimate showdown in book 10.

Having now listened to all ten, I feel like this series could have been done in five. Unfortunately, even if this one was a bit of a slog, it’s kind of important to be up on some of the long term story angles.

Best Series Ever

You can't go wrong with this series. I've listened to and read several times. Kate Daniels is awesome and Curran is the best alpha. Octavia gets all the voices just right. I'll have to listen again next year.

Better and Better

Magic Burns is the second book in the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews and delves deeper into Kate's world. Renee Raudman made me cry at the end, so kudos to her for that! This series continues to get better and better and I eagerly look forward to the next book.

Complex world building, no romance

The story is complex with so much detail in the magical world and mystery/issue to be solved that it requires significant focus for an audio format. If you're listening while doing other tasks expect to rewind frequently. If you're looking for romance this probably isn't the book for you. There is an attraction between the heroine and the lion (the characters gracing every cover) but "slow burn" doesn't even touch the painful pace of their interactions. The story is definitely written by a talented author and told by a talented narrator. I will probably continue the series but for me it is a story better suited for reading when I can focus and not when in the mood for easy entertainment.
