Review: Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews

Goodbyes are hard, and it’s even harder when you’re saying goodbye to a series that you’ve lived and breathed for the last year or so. I never expected how much this series would come to mean to me when I started reading Magic Bites last year. After 9 books, several novellas and one spin-off later, we finally get the final book in Ilona Andrews’ wildly successful Kate Daniels series, and they delivered! “You and me, Kate. We’re forever.” Magic Triumphs delivered an ending I will not soon forget. Ilona Andrews had painstakingly laid the foundations of this finale over the course of 10 books and several novellas.Everything that happened in this book was foreshadowed in previous books and delivered in a way that only Ilona Andrews can. I finished this book satisfied and yet oddly, craving for more. Kate has come a long way from a prickly mercenary who had […]

Review: Magic Bleeds (Kate Daniels #4) by Ilona Andrews

Review “I can’t give you the white picket fence, and if I did, you’d set it on fire.” What can I say? Another amazing installment in the Kate Daniels series!!! Kate Daniels, mercenary and psuedo Knight of the order gets to meet a long lost family member. It should’ve been a happy family reunion but this is Kate Daniels we’re talking about and to say that her family is just dysfunctional is an UNDERSTATEMENT! The stakes just keeps getting higher and Kate is confronting bigger and more powerful beings. Man, the action in this book is top notch. There are so many moments where I don’t even know if Kate and Curran would come out of it alive. “Don’t die on me, you stupid sonovabitch. You goddamn fucking idiot. I told you to stay out of the damn fight! Why the hell don’t you ever listen? I fucking hate you. […]

Review: Magic Burns (Kate Daniels #2) by Ilona Andrews

When I started reading this series October of last year, I had no idea the impact it would bring to my reading life. Sounds a bit melodramatic, no? But I’m not the type of reader who binge on a series. I just don’t have the disposition for it. I get so bored easily that bingeing on a long series is nearly impossible. Or so I thought until this series. And if there was a moment in the book where everything clicked for me, it would be this hilarious exchange between Curran and Kate: “Not only will you sleep with me, but you will say ‘please.’” I stared at him, shocked. The smile widened. “You will say ‘please’ before and ‘thank you’ after.” Nervous laughter bubbled up. “You’ve gone insane. All that peroxide in your hair finally did your brain in, Goldilocks.” The romance between these two won’t be realized until […]

Review: Iron and Magic (Iron Covenant) by Ilona Andrews

Review Ilona Andrews are one of those authors that can’t seem to do no wrong, and they proved that once again with Iron and Magic. Filled with interesting characters, pulse pounding action, and vivid world-building, Iron and Magic will leave you breathless with excitement. Fast-paced and well plotted with some of the best battle sequences I’ve read in my whole life, Iron and Magic exceeded all my expectations, and then some! “There is a tried-and-true method of making an alliance appear secure,’’ Lamar said carefully. Hugh glanced at him. “A union,” Lamar said, as if worried the word would cut his mouth. ‘’What union?” ‘’A civil union, Preceptor.’’ ‘’What the hell are you on about?’’ Lamar took a deep breath. ‘’Marriage!’’ Bale yelled out. Hugh stared at Lamar. ‘’Marriage?’’ ‘’Yes.’’ They had to be out of their minds. ‘’Who would be getting married?’’ ‘’You.’’ Iron and Magic opens a few […]
