Here at UTC, we can be a little old skool. Most of our favourite authors have been around for years and not many new series make it into our auto-buy lists. So, we thought doing these posts would not only help us find new things, but also allow others to find older series that perhaps they haven’t encountered before but which we still hold dear to our heart.
The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews is one of my favourite series. Ever. Ever in the history of the whole wide world. Something about it just hits all my sweet spots; I love the heroine, I love the action, I love the storylines, I love the romance, I love all the characters, I love the world. There’s a lot of love going round for this series. Every time a new book comes out, I settle in with snacks and drinks and don’t, no it’s more than that, I can’t move until it’s finished. Time ceases to have all meaning, whether it takes me 3 hours or 13, I am there right till the end. I am helpless to resist Andrews’ siren call.
However, as much as I would love to, this isn’t a post about me JUST waxing poetic about my long term relationship with the Kate Daniels series. It is also to give those of you who also love (or even just like) this series a recommendation for a series that reminded me of the Kate Daniel series. But in a good way. Not in a plagiarised couldn’t-think-of-their-own-book kind of way. I’m talking about:
Now, I am not saying I love it as much as the Kate Daniels series, my heart is faithful(ish) to that series. But, I do really really really like the Kit Colbana series. It has the same type of UF aura, with a kick ass heroine, who seems weaker than everyone else in the paranormal world, yet through sheer grit, determination and intelligence manages to survive anyway.
So if you love the Kate Daniels series, give the Kit Colbana series a go!

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?
