Magic Burns: Kate Daniels Series #2by Ilona Andrews
Thursday, July 31, 2014 07:00 PM
Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, Beaverton, OR
No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: if there's trouble, former mercenary Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered, apparently at the hands of a shapeshifter, Kate is given only 24 hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she'll find herself embroiled in a war that could destroy everything she holds dear. Magic Breaks (Ace) is the seventh installment in Ilona Andrews's Kate Daniels urban fantasy series.
Ilona Andrews is one of my favorite new urban fantasy authors. Instead of creating a "romance" novel parading around disguised as urban fantasy, Andrews creates an extraordinary alternate universe filled with interesting characters, curious creatures, and a truly strong-willed, kick-butt heroine. If you like Patricia Briggs or Kelley Armstrong, you will love Magic Burns. Andrews weaves suspense and magic, creating a book that is hard to put down.

In the second book in the Kate Daniels series, Atlanta is threatened by a magic tsunami: monsters rise, magic runs deep, and a little girl is hunted by demons.
Atlanta is a city plagued by magical problems. Kate Daniels will fight to solve them—no matter the cost.
Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Packs shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and theres little available in Atlanta.
Kate cant bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shapeshifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute—and theyll pay him in medicine. With the young peoples survival and the Packs future at stake, Kate and Curran know they must accept the offer—but they have little doubt that theyre heading straight into a trap

About the Author
Ilona Andrews is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. Ilona is a native-born Russian, and Andrew is a former Communications Sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Andrew was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade (Andrew is still sore about that). Together, Andrew and Ilona are the coauthors of the #1 New York Times bestselling Kate Daniels urban-fantasy series, including Magic Rises, Magic Slays, and Magic Bleeds, and the romantic urban-fantasy novels of the Edge, including Steel's Edge, Fate's Edge, and Bayou Moon. They currently reside in Austin, Texas, with their two children and numerous pets.
