**Includes the bonus Kate Daniels story Magic Tests**
A former Agent of death, Madeline Black now has everything to live for, most importantly, her unborn child. But Chicago has become ground zero in a struggle between ancient creatures, and only Maddy can stop the carnage
The mayor of Chicago has announced a plan to round up the citys supernatural beings and put them in camps. With her due date looming, Maddys best move would be to lay low for a while. But not everyone is willing to respect her privacy. Hounded by tentacled monsters, a rogue shapeshifter, and a tenacious blogger, Maddy turns to her most powerful ally, her uncle Daharan, only to find him missing.
Just when it seems like things cant get any worse, Maddy gets an invitation in the mail—to Lucifers wedding. Turns out everyone has been invited, friends and enemies alike. And with that kind of guest list, its highly unlikely there will be a happily ever after.
Merit has been a vampire for only a short while, but shes already seen a lifetimes worth of trouble. She and her Master, centuries-old Ethan Sullivan, have risked their lives time and again to save the city they love. But not all of Chicago is loving them back.
Anti-vampire riots are erupting all over town, striking vampires where it hurts the most. A splinter group armed with Molotov cocktails and deep-seated hate is intent on clearing the fanged from the Windy City come hell or high water.
Merit and her allies rush to figure out whos behind the attacks, who will be targeted next, and whether theres any way to stop the wanton destruction. The battle for Chicago is just beginning, and Merit is running out of time.
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.
