MAGIC BREAKS WAS ABSOFRIKKINLUTELY AWESOME! So much badassery!! ( @ilona_andrews #MagicBreaks #KateDaniels )

Sharing another one of my reviews from Pure Textuality. This is one of my absolute favorite urban fantasy series!!!  Light on the romance, heavy on the badassery!  If my character Dez aspired to be anyone else, it would probably be Kate.  Enjoy! – Jena

magicbreaksNo matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: if there’s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it…

As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers. Since Kate’s connection to Roland has come out into the open, no one is safe—especially those closest to Kate.

As Roland’s long shadow looms ever nearer, Kate is called to attend the Conclave, a gathering of the leaders from the various supernatural factions in Atlanta. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered there, apparently at the hands of a shapeshifter, Kate is given only twenty-four hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she’ll find herself embroiled in a war which could destroy everything she holds dear…

I am referring to the Kate Daniels Series as Epic (((urban))) Fantasy from now on!

Sharing another one of my reviews from Pure Textuality. I love Ilona Andrews. I just discovered this fantastic writing duo LAST YEAR thanks to the insistence of Ginny and Dolly (from PT) and it has become one of my favorites. This review is of the most recent release in the series (released July 30th). – Jena

Atlanta is a city plagued by magical problems. Kate Daniels will fight to solve them—no matter the cost.

Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack’s shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and there’s little available in Atlanta.

Kate can’t bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shapeshifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute—and they’ll pay him in medicine. With the young people’s survival and the Pack’s future at stake, Kate and Curran know they must accept the offer—but they have little doubt that they’re heading straight into a trap…


Ilona! Gordon! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TWO DOING TO ME?!?!?!?!?!?

I say that in a good way….
