View our feature on Ilona Andrews’s Magic Strikes.

When magic strikes and Atlanta goes to pieces, it’s a job for Kate Daniels…

Drafted into working for the Order of Merciful Aid, mercenary Kate Daniels has more paranormal problems than she knows what to do with these days. And in Atlanta, where magic comes and goes like the tide, that’s saying a lot.

But when Kate's werewolf friend Derek is discovered nearly dead, she must confront her greatest challenge yet. As her investigation leads her to the Midnight Games—an invitation only, no holds barred, ultimate preternatural fighting tournament—she and Curran, the Lord of the Beasts, uncover a dark plot that may forever alter the face of Atlanta's shapeshifting community…

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 co-authors of the New York Times bestselling Kate Daniels urban fantasy series and the romantic urban fantasy novels of The Edge. They currently reside in Portland, Oregon with their two children and numerous pets.

Lieder Madchen, July 25, 2014 (view all comments by Lieder Madchen)
Magic Strikes begins with a banshee on a telephone pole. I loved how random a start that was. In this book, Kate is called to aid her teenage werewolf sidekick Derek, who has gotten himself into a spot of trouble involving a pretty girl and illegal fighting. Suddenly it seems like half the Pack is keeping secrets from Curran, and Kate is caught right in the middle, and isn't that a fun place to be? Just to complicate things more, mwahaha, Curran's teasing is becoming more serious. I love how the authors have managed to keep the perfect level of sexual tension between Kate and Curran. As someone who hates it when characters fall into bed too quickly, I really appreciate a drawn-out romance. It also has what are, in my opinion, some of the best action scenes of the entire series.

Mary Abercrombie, April 7, 2009 (view all comments by Mary Abercrombie)
This is the third book in the Kate Daniels series, and although you could read it as a stand-alone, you would not get nearly the same level of enjoyment.
Kate is another fictional butt-kicking heroine, but in a very unique world. She resides in Atlanta in an alternate world where magic and technology affect the city, and it's inhabitants, in waves. When the tech is up, lights, phones, and cars work, buildings stay up, and guns fire. When the magic is up, none of the above function, and all sorts of mystical and magical creatures gain the upper hand.
In this installment, we learn more about Kate's unusual and impressive heritage, as she is forced to infiltrate a gladiator-style fighting competition, in order to protect her friends. In doing so, she exposes herself to the people she has been working so hard to hide from all her life... that is until she is capable of killing her mortal enemy: Roland. More of the were-world is explained, and Kate develops new relationships and others are strengthened. Now that the first two books have given us a strong setting, this novel delves more into Kate's own history and development. Yes, there is a romance thread, but it's more tantalizing than anything and only enhances the story.
The author has matured with each novel, and this one flows much better than the previous two. Each scene is interesting, unusual and vivid. The characters are evolving in realistic ways, while still maintaining their individuality. Ms Andrews obviously has more ideas than she knows what to do with, so there are multiple plot threads, but each is tidied up by the end, with just enough dangling to make you passionately anticipate the next installment.
