Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1) by Ilona Andrews

Magic BitesSynopsis:

Kate Daniels is a down-on-her-luck mercenary who makes her living cleaning up paranormal problems. Atlanta has two factions struggling for power. Masters of the Dead are necromancers who control vampires. The Pack are a paramilitary clan of shapechangers. When Kate’s guardian is killed, she is caught between.

My thoughts:

I heard about these books a lot and thought it sounded rather interesting so I finally got to one and OMG this book was amazing. Everything I like , Urban fantasy , humor , action, some gore and guts and some romance ( more or less in this book).

It took me a while to get used to Kateโ€™s world and setting, the somewhat different view on vampires and such but after a few pages I was sucked right into her world.

There we a lot of characters it seemed at first and I had some trouble to remember who is who, but got to it really fast.

I really enjoyed Kate, she is super snarky, smart and kicks ass and takes names. It seems there is a lot more to her that we will get to know in later books (or so I hope).

And we have Curran the Beast Lord , oh wow , he is great , also funny , snarky and sexy ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think he makes the perfect counterpart for Kate.

The book is really fast paced with a lot of action and some gore, which I loved. Once I started it and got the hang of the book I couldnโ€™t put it down and stayed up late to finish it.

The only thing that bothered me a bit was that some things just seemed overly described.

Overall, I loved this book and thing I might be hooked on the series and canโ€™t wait to start the second one.

I rate it at 4 ยฝ โ˜…

 

Some of my favorite quotes:

โ€œIt’s a reflex. Hear a bell, get food. See an undead, throw a knife. Same thing, really.โ€

***

โ€œI gave him my best cryptic smile. He did not fall down to his feet, kiss my shoes, and promise me the world. I must be getting rusty.โ€

***

โ€œI turned to leave and paused before the gap in the ruined wall. “One last thing, Your Majesty. I’d like a name I can put into my report, something shorter than typing out ‘The Leader of the Southern Shapechanger Faction.’ What should I call you?”

“Lord.”

I rolled my eyes.

He shrugged. “It’s short.โ€

***

โ€œHere, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty…โ€

โ€œWhat kind of woman greets the Beast Lord with ‘here, kitty, kitty’?โ€

    1. Oh defiantly worth the read ๐Ÿ™‚ I just finished the second one and its even better that the first ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Hope you will enjoy them just as much whenever you get a chance to read them:)

  1. I am so happy you like this series too. I can’t say here/hear Kitty Kitty or bake apple pie without thinking of these two. You have probably figured out that I love a good smart snarky character. Keep me in mind if you run across any ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Oh man I love them ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for getting me hooked on them by the way ๐Ÿ˜‰
      You and I have the same taste when it comes to that , except Barrons I like him but not as much as Ryo lol ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you looking for snarky characters check some of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Book most of her characters are snarky ๐Ÿ˜‰

        1. YES,her Covenant Series was fantastic, I loved it. I hope her spin-off the A TITAN Series will be just as great ๐Ÿ™‚ The Lux was also wicked good. Most of her books are pretty awesome.
