Magic Burns

Author-Ilona Andrews

Description Courtesy of Goodreads.
As a mercenary who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels knows how 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. When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta's paramilitary clan of shape shifters, she quickly realizes much more is at stake. 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.

Rated -5 on a scale of 1-5

I loved this book and I think it has the potential to be my favorite book in the series. I got more impressed with every page I read. I am in love with Kate and Curran, and I personally view Curran as a grown up Jace from the Mortal Instruments. I mean on some levels wow those boys are different but I just find them similar some little personality quirks they both share. But then he also reminds me of Adam Hauptman and Eric Northman. Must be why I love the man he reminds me of so many other great dudes. However he still is a character all his own. I loved the new characters in this book, well they weren't really new but they got a lot more story this time. I really like Julie and am liking her plot. I also am really into Andrea she is so tough but fragile. This story was just so great I loved how the goddess Morrigan was throughout the entire story, and lets not forget the hilarious "hero" Bran he was a riot. Plus you can't forget Kate she is the cutest character I love her to death. She is so goofy and she tries so hard, and she is endlessly brave. This book was just so good I could not put it down to save my life.

This was my favorite book in the series so far as well. I loved the first two novels, but this one was much more tightly written than the previous. Maybe that's from really getting to know the characters and their relationships, but still... such a great novel. Cant' wait for Magic Bleeds!

-Christine it was a great novel I couldn't put it down and loved Bran. Magic Bleeds can not get here soon enough in my opinion lol.
