Magic Slays (Kate Daniels #5) by Ilona Andrews
This is an adult urban fantasy novel. (Rated NC-17)
(Four Curran Hearts)
Plagued by a war between magic and technology, Atlanta has never been so deadly. Good thing Kate Daniels is on the job.
Kate Daniels may have quit the Order of Merciful Aid, but she’s still knee-deep in paranormal problems. Or she would be if she could get someone to hire her. Starting her own business has been more challenging than she thought it would be—now that the Order is disparaging her good name, and many potential clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of the Beast Lord, who just happens to be Kate’s mate.
So when Atlanta’s premier Master of the Dead calls to ask for help with a vampire on the loose, Kate leaps at the chance of some paying work. Turns out this is not an isolated incident, and Kate needs to get to the bottom of it—fast, or the city and everyone dear to her might pay the ultimate price . . .
Unfortunately, this book was forgettable for me. I can’t remember much. I had to replay part of the narration to remind myself what happened. And when I did, I remembered. It’s a shame. This was a pretty important book.
A lot happens in the story with many characters. Kate and her readers learn more about her history and connection to other parts of her family history.
The writing is good. Maybe it’s that there isn’t any more relationship turmoil. That’s a shame because early on, the series didn’t hang on that. I don’t regret reading, but I this book was unforgettable.
Overall, I will say that I will still recommend to others to read. I read far too much that it takes a remarkable story to compete with all the books in my head.
Renee Raudman does a solid job with the narration.
