Down in Atlanta, tempers – and temperatures – are about to flare…
As a mercenary who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels has seen her share of occupational hazards. Normally, waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow across Atlanta like a tide. But once every seven years, a flare comes, a time when magic runs rampant. Now Kate’s going to have to deal with problems on a much bigger scale: a divine one.
When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta’s paramilitary clan of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes much more at stake. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest – and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the opening gambit in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can’t stop the cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive…
Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews
5 out of 5
Let me tell you, as a snarky person I loved the snark that Kate gives. Like a lot! So of course, I loved the in this book!
Oh! My! Goodness! I absolutely loved Curran! And when he is under the influence of the magic spikes, WOAH! Nothing like an alpha male to make a woman want to join the Pack!
Kate is a great, strong-willed, and smart woman. I loved that. Plus the use of her natural sarcasm and the amount of snark she gives just makes her a great character.
Poor Julie. She lost all of those she loved. But she did get lucky to gain Kate as her aunt.
Bran was a great character. To be able to go from cocky asshole to a sacrificing hero is special, and can sometimes be hard to do. But Ms. Andrews (and her husband) succeeded in doing it right.
Personally, I love how the Celtic myths were used in this book. I think that this was really one of my favorite books that used Celtic myths.
The epilogue was my favorite part of the book for several reasons.
- It gives an insight to Curran's future plans for him and Kate.
- You know that Kate knows that Curran knows what she can do.
- You now finally get to know Kate's favorite book (good choice by the way!)
