Review: Magic Breaks

23 Nov

Magic Breaks once again shows that the husband and wife writing team known as Ilona Andrews are tops in the urban fantasy genre. Once again we travel to the post shift city of Atlanta where magic and technology collide. Once there we are in the world of Kate Daniels where shapeshifters, necromancers, mythical beings and magic users of all kinds are real. From the moment you land in this world you are captivated as we accompany Kate on the latest mission for her detective agency. We are kept involved as Kate battles an old foe, tries to solve a murder all while trying to save the city from the ultimate threat her own father.

In this book we are re-acquainted some of our favorite characters in Curran Lennart aka the beast Lord, the leader of the shapeshifters; former mercenary, liaison for the order and now Curran’s mate; Andrea Nash, Kate’s best friend, former knight of the order and now Alpha of the Bouda clan at the keep. In this book we finally meet the ultimate villain and person that Kate has been preparing her whole life to battle, her father Roland.

Gordon and Ilona Andrews do an excellent job of keeping us on the edge of our seats with plot twist and added complication. Just when we think we know how one situation will end and we can let out our breath something else into the mix to once again cause us to take a deep breath and hold it again. One good example is when Curran, the beast lord, arrives to rescue Kate from the prison where she has been transported. Just when we think they are safe an will make it out new challenge arrive to hinder their escape.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone that has read the previous books in the series, likes adventure, the supernatural, mythology or just a good read that will whisk you away in hours of enjoyment.
