Magic Rises ~ Ilona Andrews

Magic Rises (Kate Daniels, #6)Magic Rises by Ilona Andrews
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was smart this time around and preordered this one via Amazon so it arrived on its release date. Of course I forgot it was coming and was half way through two other novels so I had to wait a few days to start it but once I did, well you know.


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 Pack’s 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 there’s little available in Atlanta.

Kate can’t 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 they’ll pay him in medicine. With the young people’s survival and the Pack’s future at stake, Kate and Curran know they must accept the offer—but they have little doubt that they’re heading straight into a trap…

My take:

I have to say I love the Kate Daniels novels. Kate is a total bad ass but still so very human. She was wield a mean sword but she bleeds just like everyone else. This time around Kate is still living in the keep but hasn't learned much more about her own magic. She is trying to lay low and prepare herself for what she feels is the inevitable fight with Hugh. Suddenly Kate finds herself in a sticky situation she is unable to say no to.
Things are not always as they seem, especially when you are the daughter of the worlds most powerful magic user. If you have been following the series then there are some interesting twist in this installment. There are also a few tear jerking moments I will warn you about and of course it leaves you wanting more of Kate and the rest of the Pack.
