And dealing with her feelings for him might have to take a back seat to saving the world…
Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews
5 out of 5
So, at first, I was a bit disappointed with Andrea... She is a bit of a whiner. But, FINALLY, she got her act together and became a character I liked.
Raphael is really one of my favorite guys... Coming in as a 2nd to Gurran. He was creative to show Andrea that he likes her, and he cherishes her as much as he can (once he gets his head out of his ass).
We only get a bit of Kate & Curran (which makes me sad! I know this is Andrea's book, but I really am a bigger fan of Kate & Curran), but we do get it re-itterated that they are just awesome!
Anapa is one big ASS. I couldn't stand him and was glad that he got what he deserved (and by the jackels too! How appropriate).
We really get an idea and a better explanation of what happened to Andrea as a child. We had a glimpse of it from the other books, but the details in this book explains why she has become what she is.
I think Julie & Ascanio should get together. I think they would be uber cute together.
I loved getting to know Ascanio better. Plus we finally get to meet his mom and learn more about her. Definitely made him more understandable.
I was so proud that Andre a made her decision and became Beta. She is someone who needs to belong, and I think Aunt B's pack is the best thing for her.
Overall, this is a good book... But not necessarily my favorite out of the series, but still a good one!
