Book Review


Kate Daniels is on her own. Opening up her own agency sounded like a good idea until the lack of clients makes her think otherwise. When a familiar face from the past shows up asking for help, Kate has no choice but to accept the case. A man by the name of Adam Kamen has engineered a magical device and gone missing. What does the device do? No one will tell Kate, but from the looks of it, things might just explode. As Kate dives into the investigation, she finds that magic is disappearing. Vampires begin to run wild as the People lose their hold on them, wards vanish and age-old enchantments are suddenly lifted. And in the midst of it all, Julie has decided she no longer wants to be at school and runs away back to the city. Chaos at its finest and in the middle of it all Kate Daniels. Could we really have it any other way?


Kate has her hands full this time around. Between trying to balance pack politics, running her first solo investigation, and dealing with Julie wandering the streets of Atlanta, there is never a dull moment. Then again, the Kate Daniels series always keeps you on your toes. Ilona Andrews has built a series where each character becomes endeared to you. And Andrews takes plenty of liberties with those bonds as she decides to slice through the heartstrings with this novel, just as precisely as Kate would behead a vampire with Slayer.
