I Loved It!
Magic Bleeds is so far my absolute favorite book in this series. After the way things ended in Magic Strikes, and how this book started, I knew we were in for a ride of our life in this story, and Ilona Andrews did not disappoint!
Kate’s secret is known by her best friend Andrea, she’s on rocky ground with The Order, she’s finally accepted her and Curran and he’s messed up pretty bad, and now a new threat is in Atlanta and wreaking havoc everywhere making things difficult for Kate all over again.
What I really liked about this book was that for the longest time Kate has always shoved personal relationships aside, but we see her truly upset about things and how they went down with Curran, and her really clinging to her friendship with Andrea and her odd friendships with Jim and Derek continuing to play interesting factors in this book. I loved seeing Kate become more human and soft, instead of just this big old killer that we’ve come to know in previous books. She became more human in my eyes in this story and it was the first time I truly felt connected to her character. I felt her heartbreak, her jealously, her anger, and her just wanting to belong.
When everything goes to hell in this book, of course the Pack is there and her and Curran are forced to figure out what happened, and I loved how they resolved their problems. It was fitting for the two of them and absolutely perfect. These two are perfect for one another, if they can stop bickering and threatening each other for more than five minutes! But the bigger problem is the evil that is trying to take over Atlanta and how it relates to Kate. Kate is forced to share her secret with Curran and more people now know who Kate is, and things definitely get interesting and bloody in this book.
I will say I have a feeling this book was a huge setup for the rest of the series, but it was full of punch. This story was beautifully written and had just enough crazy and romance to keep the reader hooked. I couldn’t put this one down and can’t wait to dive right into the next one to see where this series is going to go next, I can only imagine nowhere good, especially with everything in such an imbalance right now. I usually am not a huge fan of these types of books but this series just has me hooked and I addicted! I highly suggest picking up The Kate Daniels Series if you’re looking for something different, or if you’re a lover of paranormal/fantasy, it definitely won’t disappoint!
