Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews

Rated : 
Before I go any farther I have to say that I love this series and have re-read it tons of times. I am now finally getting around to posting a review of this Great book and Amazing Series!

Warning: You may not be able to put this book down! Curran Addiction is a huge possibility!

Recommend: I recommend this to anyone who wants a Great Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance. It has enough for either of them. If you are looking for a Kick-Butt Female Character and a Sexy Alpha Male then look no farther! 

Tons of Action and a dash of romance that adds to the flavor of the book. Yummy and deliciously filling. 

 
We enter a “Whole New World” at the beginning of this book. Atlanta, Georgia (where the book takes place) and the rest of the  world has suffered from a “magic apocalypse.” We meet Kate Daniels right from the start. She is sitting at home enjoying her Boone’s Farm Hard Lemonade. She gets a surprise visit from a Vampire who is being piloted by Ghastek, a Master Vampire. Kate is not happy having an undead in her house and shows her love by slicing it’s throat open. Yes, she did that while she was sitting down. Ghastek proceeds to inform her that the man who helped raise her, Greg, has been murdered.  For this information he asks for her help in solving the murder since one of his own was also killed off. We then get to watch as Kate wrestles her way into solving this murder to get revenge and closer for Greg. In the process she gains his home and more “power words.” It seems that Atlanta’s Shifters seem to be caught up in this mess as well. The Beast Lord himself, Curran, asks to meet with her and wants the same cooperation that the Vampires do. 
The stage is set and the players are let loose. It is a fight to the end to see who will come out on top and who is guilty of murder. 

Side notes:
Underworld Evolution 



*Kate Daniels is one of my fav. female characters of all time. Her past is so messed up it is amazing she turned out decent at all. She is a fighter as she has been raised to be, by her mothers “lover.” 
 



*Curran is the ultimate sexy male in this book series and rivals many in other series in my opinion. He is the Alpha over all the shifters in the region. He shifts into a mighty, mighty lion.  








Favorite Quotes:

“Here, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty” 

“It’s a reflex. Hear a bell, get food. See an undead, throw a knife. Same thing, really.” 


“Why a raven?” 
To honor my father.” 
The writing under it, is that Cyrillic?” 
Yes.” 
What does it say?” 
Dar Vorona. Gift of the Raven. I am my father’s gift” 
The raven is holding a bloody sword.” 
I never said it was a nice gift.” 


“Men and swords. My father said that if you put any able-bodied man, no matter how peaceful, into a room with a sword and a practice dummy and leave him alone, eventually the man would pick up the sword and try to stab the dummy. It is human nature.” 


“He finished the bandage and was examining it critically. 
“You know those things are unreliable”. His voice held just a touch of reproach. 
“Eleven out of twelve work fine. I’d say that’s better chances than getting an orgasm with a blind date and women still try”.
