“This tale was full of action, magic and romance, not to mention Jim being a badass”
~ Under the Covers

It’s safe to say that the Kate Daniels series is a little obsession of mine. And when I say little I mean it is requirement of any friendship that you have a) read the books b) loved the books and once again Andrews demonstrates why I love this series so much by giving us a peek in to the life Jim and Dali, two of the characters in the Kate Daniels series. This tale was full of action, magic and romance, not to mention Jim being a badass:

Jim wasn’t just a badass. He was a badass who wrote a book for badasses on how to be a badder badass.

How can you not love that?

Andrews take us on a journey into a different kind of magic and it always leaves me in awe about how much research they must do to understand different cultures and their supernatural history and lore and then find a way to use them in her books. In Magic Steals we are introduced to Indonesian magic. Dali may be a half blind vegetarian, but she is also a white tiger with powerful magic, and is often called in to her community to help solve problems.

This time Jim tags along. If you have read the previous books (which you should. Now) then you already know they have a mutual attraction, so it isn’t surprising that they are dating. This book shows their very unusual courtship and I loved it. Ilona Andrews manages to pack in a ton of action, magic and romance in this novella and I found I couldn’t drag myself away.

Another winner for me, I would love to see more Dali and Jim novellas or even a full length; however, I haven’t heard any rumours, but I do live in hope!

About Ilona Andrews

Ilona Andrews is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. author2sm“Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.)

Gordon and Ilona currently reside in Oregon with their two children, three dogs and a cat. They have co-authored two series, the bestselling urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and romantic urban fantasy of The Edge.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?
