I Loved It!
Each book in this series is better than the last!
In Magic Slays, we see Kate now starting her new investigation business, and having trouble getting clients, due to her relationship with Curran. When she finally does land a client, of course the case is not the easiest one for her. With the help of Andrea and Derek, Kate is now in charge of helping to find a missing inventor and his device, as well as to solve a murder. Throw in vampire and a shapeshifter who have gone rogue and Kate has her hands full in this book.
I loved watching Andrea and Kate work out their differences in this book after their blowup in Magic Bleeds, as well as seeing Derek truly start to grow more and more from the kid we met way back in Magic Bites. He is definitely one of my favorite characters in this series, and he’s so protective of Kate, and you can see how much he looks up to her, and I have a feeling that now that Julie is back, him and her may have a story-line going on soon too!
One thing I really liked in this book, is that we got to see Kate and Curran really work together more. Curran let Kate do what she needed to do, but they communicated a lot better and really worked as a team instead of going at each other and then realizing that things would have been so much easier if they would have just worked together from the beginning. These two will never lose their stubbornness, but watching them work together and bounce things off of one another was awesome, even though they did anger each other at times in this book was amazing. Plus seeing them truly together once and for all made my heart happy.
The storyline in this book was one of my absolute favorites in the series so far as well. Seeing how Ilona Andrews took the series, and what they were fighting this time around. How things are starting to shape up, and different alliances that are starting to form is definitely getting interesting. I have a feeling when Roland does come to town, it is going to be one heck of a fight. I love the core group of people Kate has surrounded herself with, but I do have a feeling that some may betray her in upcoming books, I just hope my gut feeling is wrong.
I love the suspense, the angst, and the drama in these books, as well as the fantasy/paranormal elements that drive this series. The plot is amazing and the way this book in particular was written played out like it could have been a movie. I really didn’t want to put my kindle down to go to work or even to sleep, and would pick it right back up so I could find out what happened next. I will say again, if you’re a lover of fantasy/paranormal, I highly suggest picking up the Kate Daniels Series today, as it is a definite must read. You can’t help but fall in love with Kate and her strong will, stubbornness, and her kick butt attitude!
