Magic Breaks - Ilona Andrews

As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, but she must now deal with the affairs of the Pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel, ancient being with godlike powers.

As Roland’s long shadow looms ever nearer, Kate is called to attend a gathering of leaders from Atlanta’s supernatural factions. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered by a shapeshifter, Kate is given less than twenty-four hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she’ll find herself embroiled in a war that could destroy everything she holds dear… 

My thoughts:
Of course it was good, but was it as good as previous books? Not exactly. Close, but not close enough. Not the same squeee-ness of it all. Not the same I must finish this in a second.

Still, I love Kate, she is so kick-ass.
Curran is so grrrrrrr alpha yum!
The gang is still awesome.
I totally love Roland..what? I do! He is so I WILL DESTROY THE WORLD AND BUILD TOWERS! I mean the note at the end, awesome.
And there is non-stop action. Danger. Vampires. Creepy towers. And finally finally a meeting. i have waited for that for aaaages.

Still, not as good. Good enough. But, it's the whole, this series will surely go on forever. But I rather prefer an ending and not 100 books if there is to be a decline. However tiny.

I am still gonna give it a 4, even if it was more like..3.75. Close, but yes you heard it already.

I do like how she finally looks like herself

I love this cover too. I agree, it's always nice to see a series gracefully end rather than dragging out. I'm behind so I'm not sure how I'll feel about later books, but I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it enough. Great review!

I recently read the second book in the series and really enjoyed it! I can't wait to read the rest of them. It's too bad this one wasn't as amazing as the others, but I'm glad you still enjoyed it. I'm interested to see how long they'll keep writing this series

I agree! I went back and forth but I did like the end. I can't wait to see where it goes :)

Elysium said...

I need to start this soon! They set the bar so high with the first books that it's hard to match.

I've only read the first book in this series, will probably take me forever to catch up! I liked what I read though, and the character's great.

Keertana said...

I liked this a lot better than its predecessor but it definitely wasn't one of the best books in the series, for me. Excited to see how the next book fares, though!

Piecraft Bucharest said...

What? No aaages? That's unacceptable! This is a another brilliant review - I don't know how you do it (given the many hours you spend exercising...) Where do you get the extra energy to write awesome reviews?!?

Blodeuedd said...

And I liked the previous one more ;)

Blodeuedd said...

Awww you are too kind!!!

Haha, seriously that is my life, read, write, tv and walking

Jen Twimom said...

I pretty much agree with your review, except I think I gave it an A- ... I LOVED the previous book and really, really liked this one. :-)

Blodeuedd said...

I liked it, just, you know, In wanted it to be exactly as awesome as the previous one

BookaholicCat said...

I have to agree with your review. This one was good, but not as good as previous books. I don't know... it was missing some of the magic.

Blodeuedd said...

Something was missing, oh yes
