Mini Review: Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, #1) by Ilona Andrews

September 12, 2009 Review 1

imageBook Blurb: Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren’t for magic…
One moment magic dominates, and cars stall and guns fail. The next, technology takes over and the defensive spells no longer protect your house from monsters. Here skyscrapers topple under onslaught of magic; werebears and werehyenas prowl through the ruined streets; and the Masters of the Dead, necromancers driven by their thirst of knowledge and wealth, pilot blood-crazed vampires with their minds. In this world lives Kate Daniels. Kate likes her sword a little too much and has a hard time controlling her mouth. The magic in her blood makes her a target, and she spent most of her life hiding in plain sight. But when Kate’s guardian is murdered, she must choose to do nothing and remain safe or to pursue his preternatural killer. Hiding is easy, but the right choice is rarely easy…Mini Review: This is the best urban fantasy since Patricia Briggs. Seriously. Great world building, a tough yet likable protagonist with an as yet not fully understood magical heritage, and the potential for an equally strong romantic counterpart in the Beast Lord. All of those elements are presented in a tightly written narrative with smart dialogue; I couldn’t ask for more.

Sexual Content:
Some romantic tension, but no sex. Some nondescript references
regarding the villain’s behavior.
