The duo writing team of Ilona Andrews does it again. I have written a review on most, if not all, of the books in this series and I find myself running out of things to say. Each book is different in its own right, but all are deep, full of humor, multi-layered and unpredictable. From the main characters, Kate and Curran, and all the sub characters are written in such a way as to make the reader care about all of them. Mix it all together and you have an urban fantasy series that has it all. There has never been a story from these two that I have not liked.
With Magic Shifts we find Kate and Curran have broken away from life with the pack but cannot really escape it. When their friend Eduardo goes missing, Kate and Curran shift their focus to him. Eduardo was a fellow member of the Mercenary Guild, so Kate knows the best place to start looking is his most recent jobs. As Kate and Curran dig further into the merc’s business, they discover that the Guild has gone to hell and that Eduardo’s assignments are connected in the most sinister way. Once again Kate and Curran are left to save the city they love.
Magic is coming and going in waves in post-Shift Atlanta—and each crest leaves danger in its wake in this gripping novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Kate Daniels series.
After breaking from life with the Pack, mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate—former Beast Lord Curran Lennart—are adjusting to a very different pace. While they’re thrilled to escape all the infighting, Kate and Curran know that separating from the Pack completely is a process that will take time.
But when they learn that their friend Eduardo has gone missing, Kate and Curran shift their focus to investigate his disappearance. As they dig further into the merc’s business, they discover that the Mercenary Guild has gone to hell and that Eduardo’s recent assignments are connected in the most sinister way…
An ancient enemy has arisen, and Kate and Curran are the only ones who can stop it—before it takes their city apart piece by piece.
