Magic Rises - Ilona Andrews

I love the Kate Daniels series -- so much that there's now a sneaking fear: can the next instalment be as good? The answer with Magic Rises is YES!

This isn't the book to jump into the series with. Start at the beginning, enjoy them all and then this one makes a ton of sense. The characters become friends.

And I know already, you shouldn't love a baddie, but Hugh is a brilliant baddie. I was thoroughly intrigued by and believed the twists and turns of the story.

As always, the reworkings of old myths added a fascinating layer and the hints for future books in the series -- bring 'em on!

I'm now more a fan than ever. Thanks, Ilona Andrews.
