Down in Atlanta, tempers – and temperatures – are about to flare…
As a mercenary who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels has seen her share of occupational hazards. Normally, waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow across Atlanta like a tide. But once every seven years, a flare comes, a time when magic runs rampant. Now Kate’s going to have to deal with problems on a much bigger scale: a divine one.
When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta’s paramilitary clan of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes much more at stake. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest – and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the opening gambit in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can’t stop the cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive…

First Thought when Finished: Now I see why everyone gushes over this series! Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews caused me to use a good chunk of the credits from Christmas to buy the rest of the series. I will be back to back listening to these suckers!
Quick Thoughts: Story was super strong and I like that we are getting glimpses into different areas of the world. The characters are growing on me but I have a feeling the Kate/Curran dance will be at times infuriating to read.

I don’t know anyone who has chosen to listen to these regret that decision. Renee really does nail Ilona Andrews writing voice!

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
