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…

First Thought when Finished: I am sucked in y’all! SUCKED IN!

Quick Thoughts: Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews had me on the edge of seat, laughing out loud, and fanning myself (often all 3 within a matter of 30 minutes). How can you not love a world and characters that make you feel like that multiple times during a story. So far each book has been better than the last!

Part of my Read It, Rate It, File It, DONE! reviews

Note: I would have said more about this book but everything is so spoilery. Like I was pretty sure I was going to cry if a certain someone bit it. I also had to laugh when at the end a certain someone was clueless. Also all the quips! The dressing down. ANDREA (no seriously she is one of my favorite characters of all time). So lots to say but just don’t want to ruin it! Just listen to it if you haven’t already. Relisten if you have cause you know you want too!

  1. I am starting book two on audio today since I finished my Luke Daniels book this morning, and no you aren’t crazy to get a book narrated by Luke that is exactly why I got the one I just read. He is the bomb!
