Kate Daniels, Book 4
Synopsis: Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren’t for the magic. When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose.
Kate Daniels works for the Order of Knights of Merciful Aid, officially, as a liaison with the mercenary guild. Unofficially, she cleans up the paranormal problems no one else wants to handle—especially if they involve Atlanta’s shapeshifting community.
When she’s called in to investigate a fight at the Steel Horse, a bar on the border between the territories of the shapeshifters and the necromancers, Kate quickly discovers there’s a new player in town. One who’s been around for thousands of years—and rode to war at the side of Kate’s father.
This foe may be too much even for Kate and Curran, the Beast Lord, to handle. Because this time Kate will be taking on family…
Review: Kate Daniels is a series that I love with a deep love, really deep love, and the more the volumes advance, the more I like it … The reasons are many, and rather than writing a detailed review with lots of nice words, I said to myself that for once, going to the essential would be perhaps be more effective to convince you to discover it.
Fact # 1: This volume is overflowing with action, the rhythm of the story never slows down, the events are linked in a crazy race.
Fact 2: There is Curran.
Fact # 3: We find Saiman and he is hilarious sometimes (despite himself). I love the variety of characters that the authors offer us.
Fact 4: There is Curran. What? Have I already said it? But there is one detail that must be known, he appears naked. But really naked. In his simplest device. (Long sigh)
Fact 5: We discover more about Kate, and it’s really good news from the authors.
Fact 6: Family is sometimes rotten. But really rotten. It’s not the characters who will tell us the opposite.
Fact 7: Curran appears naked. No, I do not ramble, I protest. He appears naked several times. Yeah, who says « volume full of action » says « transformations for Curran » and says « transformations » says naked Curran. (Long sigh x2)
Fact # 8: Kate is particularly endearing in this volume. I appreciate her more and more.
Fact 8: No jacuzzy but a bed in this volume. And bed + Curran =? (Pause and outraged expression on my part) What did you think? (Frown.) A bed is for sleeping! You really have have misplaced ideas!
Fact 9: A lot of tenderness in these pages. Humor too. Characters who reveal themselves.
Fact 10: Curran is …. pfiou … I think we should make him as a statue. Or make bookmarks to have him on hand if needed. Shirtless eh, his jogging is accepted. In this volume he takes all his magnitude, and I do not speak only of his muscles. The characters are well found, we understand better their motivations and something is unlocked. A real success.
Fact # 11: Ahhhhh, I need the 5th! There, now, immediately!
Fact # 12: If you have not yet discovered the Kate Daniels series, what are you waiting for?
