"Magic Strikes, Maims and Lusts"

Kate Daniels was determined to kill her father, Roland. She has been trying for quite awhile now but never seems to get close enough to pull it off. In this third part of the "Magic" series, Kate and her friends are trying to find the Reapers (sort of an ECW on testerone) team who fight in the Midnight Games. They did serious damage to Kate's friend Derek and they have to pay.

Curran, the Beast Lord who lusts after Kate - and she lusts back but just won't admit it - heads up the group. Dali, the spellcaster and others round it out. Their plan - to outsmart all the teams and meet the Reapers in the Finals. Minor issue: first they must make it to the Finals.

Ilona Andrews' characters seemed to just leap right off the page and become part of my living room! The fight scenes were very well done and the byplay between Curran and Kate was making me snicker between thinking "ouch!" every time someone got hurt. Gotts go - have to go buy the other two and see what I missed!

A Kate Daniels Novel

Drafted into working for the Order of Merciful Aid, mercenary Kate Daniels has more paranormal problems than she knows what to do with these days. And in Atlanta, where magic comes and goes like the tide, that's saying a lot.

As her investigation leads her to the Midnight Games - an invitation only, no holds barred, ultimate preternatural fighting tournament - she and Curran, the Lord of the Beasts, uncover a dark plot that may forever alter the face of Atlanta's shapeshifting community...
