Review: Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews

Publication Date: 8/4/2015
Series: Kate Daniels #8
Rating: 5 Stars


Official Blurb:

In the latest Kate Daniels novel from #1 New York Timesbestselling author Ilona Andrews, magic is coming and going in waves in post-Shift Atlanta—and each crest leaves danger in its wake…

After breaking from life with the Pack, mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate—former Beast Lord Curran Lennart—are adjusting to a very different pace. While they’re thrilled to escape all the infighting, Curran misses the constant challenges of leading the shapeshifters.

So when the Pack offers him its stake in the Mercenary Guild, Curran seizes the opportunity—too bad the Guild wants nothing to do with him and Kate. Luckily, as a veteran merc, Kate can take over any of the Guild’s unfinished jobs in order to bring in money and build their reputation. But what Kate and Curran don’t realize is that the odd jobs they’ve been working are all connected.

An ancient enemy has arisen, and Kate and Curran are the only ones who can stop it—before it takes their city apart piece by piece…


Okay, now that is out of the way… This book is amazing!! Kate and Curran have far settled into retirement life when the next big bad rolls into town. The plot drove the story line with action packed fun and excitement for my favorite PNR couple.  The only thing that I missed in this book is the back and forth batter while Kate and Curran were courting. Here Kitty Kitty is by far my favorite line from a book.  Kate’s wit and humor paired with her kickass mentality and large lion fianc√© make this book work. For the first time in the series, I was actually scared about her chance of survival.  When you get to that part, you’ll know what I mean.  The moments of genuine anxiety and sadness will leave you stunned.  Kate has faced some pretty awful creatures in her day, but as owner of the city, she has more on her plate than she can handle. 

If you’re new to the Ilona Andrews writing duo, be prepared to be ruined for all other Urban Fantasy books. The only thing is… I WANT MORE NOW!!
