Kate has come to terms with claiming Atlanta. While she doesn’t like how drastically life has changed, she has had no choice but to accept it and move on. And now that far reaching dream of a home and family has come true. Kate has a family and a group of friends willing to defend them. When her father puts out a hit on her son, and an ancient enemy rears its head to attack Atlanta, it’s just another battle to Kate and the crew. But this time Kate has a lot more to lose.
Watching Kate as she struggles to balance being a mother and working her cases was a new level of entertainment. Ilona Andrews paired the skills Kate developed in the field into motherhood so well, even though I would never have thought the two would coincide. But having lightning fast reflexes with a toddler does come in handy. Especially because a child from Curran and Kate is bound to get into trouble, repeatedly.
There were a few areas where the book time jumps. But even with the slight gaps in the story, it flowed well, and I understood why the pace needed to pick up. Being the last in the series, Magic Triumphs, had a lot of loose ends to tie up. True to the Kate Daniels’ style, the pages flew by, but Ilona Andrews brought the series around full circle and made sure nothing was left unanswered. They even snuck in one last new culture of monsters and symbolism.
The final installment in the Kate Daniels series is everything fans of the series could hope for. Everything we have come to know and love about the series is compounded into one last book, and some older characters we haven’t seen in a while have a last chance to shine. There are myriad of short stories that take place in between the major books of the series, and I’m going to backtrack to read them and stay in this world a little bit longer. I’m just not ready to say goodbye.
