If this review could move it would basically be a happy dance punctuated with some happy little squeaks and lots of jazz hands for good measure. ~ Under the Covers
Former mercenary Kate Daniels has a lot more responsibilities now that she not only owns her own investigations business, but is also the Consort of the Beast Lord, Curran. Not to mention the ever looming threat of an attack from Roland, her father. However, the threat stops being looming and becomes pretty damn imminent where Kate comes face to face with Hugh, Roland’s warlord in Atlanta. Especially when he lays the body of a Master of the Dead at her feet, supposedly murdered by a shifter and gives her twenty four hours to bring him the culprit, otherwise war will be declared and every one she loves will be in mortal danger.
WARNING! Prepare for an review that contains more gushing than an erotica heroine’s knickers! Sorry guys at this point in the Kate Daniels series Ilona Andrews has caught me hook, line and sinker. I can’t guarantee that this review will contain anything more than drooling in written form; if this review could move it would basically be a happy dance punctuated with some happy little squeaks and lots of jazz hands for good measure.
However, there is a very good reason I am so in love with this series, it gives you an Urban Fantasy with plenty of action and excitement coupled with an interesting plot, great characters and a unique world that you can immerse yourself in. Magic Breaks continues on in this vein, with a lot of the story lines that Andrews has been building coming into fruition, including finally getting to meet Roland. The big bad. I had no idea what to expect with Roland, throughout this whole series he is the bogey man, the puppet master and meeting him would result in everyone’s, especially Kate’s imminent demise.Suffice to say that it quite what happened, which made this book and the future books far more interesting.
Now I can’t review a Kate Daniels book with out mentioning my true love, the Beast Lord, Curran. Although these books aren’t heavy on the romance and aren’t particularly steamy, the love between Kate and Curran still plays a key role in the story. And I love it. Their relationship continues to grow in strength as they survive and sometimes thrive on every situation thrown their way. As for the other characters in the book, I really hope the Andrews give them there time to shine (their own books please!) I have especially fallen for our favourite not-so-teen-wolf-anymore Derek and the ever-wicked teenage hyena Ascanio, they have been such great characters throughout the series so far, that I just want to see more of them.
I loved this book, it was packed full of action and revelation and a few shocks that have me impatiently waiting the next book, this series continues on strong and I will be waiting with baited breath for the next book.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
