Review-Magic Shifts

15 Mar

Magic Shifts once again shows that the husband and wife writing team known as Ilona Andrews are tops in the urban fantasy genre. In this eighth book in their magic series we are once again taken to the post-shift city of Atlanta. Once there we enter the world of Kate Daniels where shapeshifters, necromancers, mythical beings and magic users of all kinds are real. Not long after we first enter the city to join Kate and fiancee Curran as fight new foes while trying locate a missing shapeshifter.

In this book we are re-acquainted some of our favorite characters in Curran Lennart, the former 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: and Roland, Kate’s father.

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.
