Magic Burns
Magic Burns | Ilona Andrews
32 posts | 85 read | 13 to read
As a mercenary who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels knows how waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow across Atlanta like a tide. But once every seven years, a flare comes, a time when magic runs rampant. When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta's paramilitary clan of shape shifters, she quickly realizes much more is at stake. The stolen maps are only the opening gambit in an epic tug of war between two gods hoping for rebirth, and if Kate can't stop the cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive.

This was a wonderful addition to the series. Narration was good. Seeing a different side to Kate and Curran was awesome.

My favourite genre is fantasy (urban or otherwise). I love all the world building and the variety of characters. And who couldn‘t use a little more magic in their lives?

It‘s a shame for the characters that there is usually murder, war, or significant crimes attached to all fantasy...

Continuing my series reread to fulfill SRP challenges. First was a first book by an author, now the second book in a series.

Ilona shared a Facebook post a while ago revealing that the series was originally intended to be episodic rather than cumulative, and these first couple of books really are. I still love them, but the series definitely gets better later.

I forgot how frantic the pacing is sometimes. So much worldbuilding stuffed into quite a small space, and sometimes the leaps of logic left me having to backtrack a page or two to make sure I followed. Still very enjoyable -- and it had the buns hanging on to every word... #BunniesofLitsy

This is fun urban fantasy, with a heroine who is not always perfect but is tough and smart. The world building was intriguing but I wanted more explanation for some things. If technology is so unpredictable, why does society keep the electricity grids up, especially for necessary things like traffic lights, instead of finding a different solution? Overall enjoyable, and I‘ll continue the series.

Dear Ilona Andrews why did you have to kill my new favorite character I was just beginning to like him 😭💔. But I must say I love this book more than the first book, it kept me on edge. I love the humor and banter of Kate with anyone. I can‘t wait to read the next book.

I enjoyed this much more than the first one. Emotional and fast paced. A lot of fun. The world building and use of mythology was interesting. I'm definitely hooked now. #fantasy #shapeshifters #undead #urbanfantasy

Book two was a bit better than book one. Mercenary Kate Daniels faces off against an old god with the help of her friends. Along the way she adopts a kid. My favorite character remains Saiman even though he didn't show up very much in this book.

Such a quick read and definitely fun. I like the slow burn of the romance in this series - it allows plenty of space for the plots. It's probably good neither of my libraries has the third book as an ebook because I have approximately a bazillion print things checked out that I should be reading instead!

I love this series. I‘m winding my way back through, half in audiobook, half by reading and the audiobook really makes clear that the early books are just that, early books for the author. The writing starts getting better in this book and the world develop really pick up. Kate is a fabulous character and the authors drop lots of cool hints that become important in later books. I love a well planned series

I'm glad i tried this second book. Already understanding the world development, made this book easily enjoyable right out of the gate. The interaction between Curran and Kate is positively snarky. I love it. I definitely recommend it.

Both Kate Daniels, and Curran are #SnarkyCharacters
I love the dialogue between them in the earlier books! Maybe it's time to reread and catch up? (Which just adds to my #CantEven problem) ❤️

WarpedSweetness I love Patricia Briggs!! Especially her Mercy Thompson series. 3y
Heretherebedragons Patricia Briggs and Mercy is a comfort reread for me too. 3y
ScientistSam @Chachic Ilona Andrews is just so good! 3y
ScientistSam @WarpedSweetness @Heretherebedragons I 💕 Mercy, especially the early books! 3y
WarpedSweetness @ScientistSam I have only read read up to book four I believe. The others on my TBR. But I l love those four books. 3y
Chachic @ScientistSam Agree, Ilona and Gordon are awesome! I keep trying to find books similar to theirs but no one can compare. 3y
ScientistSam @Chachic have you read Patricia Briggs, especially her early Mercy Thompson books and the spin-off Alpha and Omega series? 3y
Chachic @ScientistSam Yep, I read the first three Mercy Thompson books and the first Alpha and Omega book, but didn't feel like continuing with either of those series. They weren't for me, unfortunately. 3y
ScientistSam @Chachic well, if you ever find something close, let me know! Jim Butcher's Dresden Files are quite different from most of Ilona's series, but they are also wonderful urban fantasy about a PI/wizard. It's another series where I keep trying to find others similar to it but haven't quite. 3y
Chachic I haven't tried Jim Butcher's series, mostly because I'm not ready to commit to such a long one. Sigh, I don't think there's anyone quite like Ilona and Gordon. 3y
willreadforfeels Oooh! Patricia Briggs and Ilona Andrews are just about my top authors for urban fantasy, actually they're among my top authors in general, anything they put out is an autobuy for me. Also, Narnian nostalgia is a thing! I used to crush on Prince Caspian. 😍 3y

The second Kate Daniels novel, and just as much fun to read as the first! Again, I'd managed to forget some subtleties of the plot since I last read it, and so got to re-experience some of the joys of discovery. I just love (and recommend) this series!

An awesome follow up to book one. This one was less cloak and dagger for the reader. Picking up book three now and will not stop
