I Liked It!
Magic Burns is the second book in the Kate Daniels Series by Ilona Andrews and is AMAZING! I was a bit eh on Magic Bites, but this book, this book got me hooked on the series!
Kate is finally doing good at working with both the Guild and the Order and is able to put food on the table and is finally starting to get her life in order. After everything she went through in the previous book she needs a break, but then a flare starts and everything just goes downhill. What I really enjoyed in this book, was the character development and the new characters that we met. We really got to see Kate in her element, as well as see her not be such a stoic character as she was in Magic Bites. Her empathy and caring for Julie was beautiful, and the friendship she has with Andrea is amazing. She may not want to admit it, but she really does care for Jim and Derek and her banter with Ghastek is quite hilarious as well. But the one thing I truly enjoyed in this book was seeing her and Curran and their back and forth and seeing them and their odd relationship progress.
The storyline in this book was fantastic. I loved the flare and the mystery of what was going on, and why everyone was after Julie. Watching Kate go all crazy trying to get answers was awesome, and watching her do what she needed to do to save the people she cared about was amazing. This book really was the one that was going to show me if I was going to invest in the rest of the series or not, and now I know I will be reading more in this series. I have fallen in love with Kate Daniels and her awesomeness and this series. Especially now that we are getting more hints as to what exactly Kate is hiding!
If you’re a lover of paranormal/urban fantasy, or just looking for something new to try, this is definitely a book to pick up. Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews definitely has suspense, magic, angst, and a storyline that will have you on the edge of your seat!
