Review: Wildfire – Ilona Andrews

Review: Wildfire – Ilona Andrews

Wildfire took me on a journey that was extremely fast-paced, filled with action, betrayal, romance, intrigue and a complicated plot. So well done! What else can I say about Wildfire? The character development is awesome. The universe is completely set up. I love Rogan. I also love Nevada. And Nevada’s family. I love all the magic! And the intrigue. As well as the fight scenes. And the action, too. Now this sounds like a poem. But I’m no poet, am I? Wildfire is fast-paced. And it’s so well done! The storyline attractive, and I just want more. Small secrets were revealed. Some big ones as well. And review still sounds like a poem. So I’ll just go with it, then. […]

Review: White Hot – Ilona Andrews

Review: White Hot – Ilona Andrews

White Hot brought some more explanations about the Hidden Legacy universe, and I got to know Nevada, Rogan, and the other characters better. The pace is fast, and there is so much going on. I’m in a magic-induced nirvana right now. I don’t know how the Andrews do it, but White Hot was actually even better than Burn for Me! The character development was awesome, and so was the overall storyline, with parts continuing from the last books, and many new happenings as well. The political intrigue was still going on, and the magic used to undermine the different houses was amazing. Not going to say too much about White Hot, as I don’t want to spoil anything – just […]

Review: Burn for Me – Ilona Andrews

Review: Burn for Me – Ilona Andrews

Oh my goodness! Rogan and Nevada are both characters I became slightly obsessed with at the beginning of Burn for Me, and now, I just know that I have to figure out what is up next. Ilona Andrews did it again – a complete winner! There is something special with stories including magic. When those stories are written by Ilona Andrews, there is even more that is special about them! Burn for Me is a prime example of their excellent writing, world building, character development, story arc, plot and general awesomeness. I don’t really know what more to say than that – it was as close to perfection as the written word can possibly be. Rogan and Nevada are very […]

Review: Magic Binds – Ilona Andrews

Review: Magic Binds – Ilona Andrews

Magic Binds has action at break-neck speed, and still managed to be one of the most romantic and sweet installment in the series at the same time! As always, Kate Daniels is epic! Magic Binds moves forward very nicely, and some loose ends are tied up, while new ones are being made. I loved that Kate was doubting things because of her connection with the land. Feeling the magic get stronger, and how it was sometimes difficult to stay human with all that power, and how Curran was able to anchor her when she could have gone completely mad with it. Magic Binds includes Kate and other characters’ trademark humor, some serious hotness, epic battles, a lot of deceit, secrets […]

Review: Sweep in Peace – Ilona Andrews

Review: Sweep in Peace – Ilona Andrews

Andrews did it again! Sweep in Peace took me on a wild ride, and I stayed up until almost 3:30 am to finish reading about Dina and Gertrude Hunt. Sweep in Peace is just as well done and filled with adventure as the first Innkeeper Chronicles was! There is so much going on, and Dina will do everything she can to save her inn, Gertrude Hunt. When an arbitrator shows up to tell her he needs an inn to host some peace talks between three rival species on the planet Nexus, she knows it’s very dangerous, especially when she realizes that all the other Innkeepers told him no. She really needs money, though, and her inn really needs more visitors […]

Review: Magic Shifts – Ilona Andrews

Review: Magic Shifts – Ilona Andrews

Magic Shifts shows how life is for Curran and Kate after they leave the pack, and if you thought things would slow down for them, you were very wrong. My Magic Shifts review: The Kate Daniels series continues to be among the very best there is when it comes to Urban Fantasy, and in my opinion. Kate and Curran are a big part of why I love this so much! From the first book and up until now, the changes they have both gone through, the growth, the maturing – it’s pretty amazing, let me tell you! Curran became the alpha of a pack when he was very young, so he has never really been an adult who didn’t have […]

Review: Magic Breaks – Ilona Andrews

Review: Magic Breaks – Ilona Andrews

Magic Breaks brings a lot of loose ends together, while also opening up a few new cans of worms. Fast-paced and action-filled, but also having that special bond Kate has with the characters she cares for, it was an amazing read. My Magic Breaks review: It’s not exactly a secret that I fell in love with Kate Daniels when I finally started reading these books about a year ago. I had been holding out on Magic Breaks, though, so I could read it back to back with Magic Shifts this summer. And I’m very happy I waited a while, because it was well worth the wait! Both Kate and Curran continue to be one of my favorite paranormal couples! They […]

Review: Magic Slays – Ilona Andrews

Review: Magic Slays – Ilona Andrews

Holy cliffhanger! And what an amazing story Magic Slays was! I love learning more about Kate. Curran is so great I want to purr when he arrives on the page! My Magic Slays review: In Magic Slays, Kate has started her own PI agency, and the first case she and Andrea got was a very strange one, only to be followed by one that was possibly even stranger. The danger was lurking everywhere, and the magic played havoc on Kate’s senses as she had to figure out how wards could completely disappear, both on her crime scene and closer to town. There are many things making these jobs difficult, but as usual, Kate has her eye on the prize – […]

Review: Magic Bleeds – Ilona Andrews

Review: Magic Bleeds – Ilona Andrews

Magic Bleeds features many fights and plenty of heartache and I completely and utterly loved it all! My Magic Bleeds review: Kate Daniels is one of the best kick-ass heroines I’ve had the pleasure to read, and she confirmed this in Magic Bleeds! She is strong, dedicated, loyal and fierce. She is also a woman who would love to be a part of something bigger, have someone to love, and someone who loves her – just for her. Of course Saiman is making life difficult for Kate, just because he wants to make life difficult for Curran, but Kate outsmarts Saiman this time, and the hotness that ensues made my kindle fume, at least I think so, because my glasses […]

Review: Clean Sweep – Ilona Andrews

Review: Clean Sweep – Ilona Andrews

Clean Sweep is the amazing start to yet another awesome series by power-couple Ilona Andrews. Witty, magical and with a strong female character, I loved the way the first story in the Innkeeper Chronicles is so different from their Kate Daniels series. My Clean Sweep review: Dina is a really good character to follow, she has some magic, but it’s mostly chained to the inn she’s the hostess of. And it’s a very special kind of inn, too, in which people of various species come to stay, and where the keeper has to make sure they are safe during the time they are there. With vampires, werewolves, aliens and parallel worlds, Clean Sweep encompasses a whole universe of characters, possibilities […]
