My wife's finished this now, so I need to hurry up and finish, so we can talk about it. Been so busy with class. 😭

Oh boy, I have so many questions. Hard to believe I'm finally reading the last book, to be honest! I've enjoyed this series for so long, but never actually finished it.

The last book in this series, and I held out for a LONG time because I didn‘t want it to end... but they started a spin off series now, so it was time to give in and read the final chapter. SO GOOD! I love how far they took us in a book, and how they wrapped up so many loose ends, but left tendrils to pull on later in this world. I won‘t write anything to spoil the ending, but I will say I want to reread the whole series from the beginning now.

Christy2318 This is the only one I haven‘t read. I think I want to start over from the beginning before I read it. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Christy2318 Haha! So I wasn‘t the only one who hated to read the last one! She‘s starting a Julie series now and posting chapters online as she goes, so I figured it was time to jump back in, although reading the end did make me want to reread it from the beginning.... I‘m thinking that sounds like a good cozy winter reread. 😉 2y
ravenlee They scrapped the Julie stuff that they were posting serially and redid it all. I‘m torn about it, because I was really enjoying it, but I understand why they felt they had to start over. I can‘t wait until it comes out for real! 2y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @ravenlee That‘s always the danger of posting as they go, sometimes things need to be reworked. I always have that trouble with Innkeeper when they do it that way, sometimes I read as they post, sometimes I just wait and read the finished product. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @ravenlee Honestly, I‘m still amazed they post online as they go for anything, that‘s such a risk and challenge, I can‘t help but admire them for even attempting it. 2y
ravenlee I know. I think they‘re awesome and I‘ll read anything they write. When the new book gets published it‘ll definitely be worth the wait! 2y

Everything we have come to know and love about the series is compounded into one last book. There were a few areas where the book time jumps. But even with the slight gaps in the story, it flowed well. This had a lot of loose ends to tie up. True to style the pages flew by and it came around full circle making sure nothing was left unanswered. #urbanfantasy

Finally read and finished this book. It took me long because I purposely didn't read it. I didn't want the world that Ilona Andrews had created to end. Everything was amazing and more. Beginning to end. I got book depression at the end. I hope they write more stories about this world.

I don't want to say more or else I will spoil it. 5/5!

I was getting worried as I neared the end, ‘cause there was a lot of ‘splaining left to do, but it worked!

Pluses today: finished this awesome read; got five new books in three different packages.

Minus: ants have invaded my kitchen and I just found them on and around my nightstand too. 😬 Not how I planned to spend today.

Clare-Dragonfly Oh yuck! I hope you have success dealing with the ants! 3y

One of the reasons I love this series is that Kate feels real. I can relate to her struggles, magic and violence aside. This is such a mom-of-a-young-child feeling, no matter what your life is.

I finally checked out the third book in Katherine Arden‘s Winternight trilogy...only to find out the last Kate Daniels book is out in paperback. So after much dithering, I‘m returning the library book and sidelining my TBR stack to continue my KD reread and blaze through the finish. #bookpeopleproblems

I can't believe how well Ilona Andres wraps up this series! How Kate is able to handle the final showdown with Roland is really imaginative and works incredibly well, and Conlan is absolutely adorable. I'm sad the series is over, but satisfied with the resolution.

After two and a half months of binge reading the Kate Daniels series, I must say I‘m kind of happy and sad to finally finished the whole series. This is best UF sdult book series I‘ve ever read in 2019 and I feel like nobody is ever going to replace this book. I‘m really sad because there‘ll be no more adventure with Kate and the gang, no more hilarious banter between Derek and Ascanio, no more cute moments with Conlan &No more amazing ⚔️ fights.

This series I've been waiting for so long, anticipated the final book and I still haven't read it. I'm in a long and depressing reading stump. I have at least 3 books that I had preordered and waited a long time for its release and my brain (and heart) is not interested. I'm not even comfort reading (rereading old favourites).

Urgh~ someone have any idea how to get out of a reading slump?

Here's Albus to cheer myself up.

This is really all the fault of Kate‘s father, his ancient past catching up with them. Of course their crossbred toddler adds some mayhem to the mix.

Absolutely have loved this series. Kate and Curran are the perfect couple & I'm sad that the series ended. However the ending has left things open to a new series maybe? Can't imagine Atlanta without the fearless duo so I'm sure I will have to do a re read of the series at some point.

All of Atlanta comes together to fight new enemies and old ones.

I started to worry near the end about things getting resolved in this final book of the series. I should have known better.

This was a wonderful series ending book but it was not as action packed as I would have liked. I would say that the pacing of 2/3rds of the book was slow and then the last 1/3rd was go, go, go! It wasn‘t unenjoyable but it wasn‘t what I was looking for either. Also, I am hopeful that there might be an inclusion of a certain character in The Iron Covenant series or a spinoff by how the book ended. Full review at www.thegenreminx.com

As I got older I was able to filter out and refine what types of genres I gravitated towards. One of these genres was Urban Fantasy.

Kate Daniels is one of my favourites series and I haven't read the last book... yet. I'm not ready for it to finish so I might read it on my trip to Korea/Japan.

I want a conclusion but at the same time I want the world to never end.

What a book. What a series! I adore Kate and her journey has been incredible. I love how far she came from book one and seeing it all culminate in this last book was bittersweet. Once again Kate faces a threat that could end Atlanta and the world she loves. Andrews laid the groundwork for this finale over several books and I love how it paid off. My only gripe would be the epilogue. 4.5⭐️

4/5⭐ Non-stop intense. Authors balanced inclusion of beloved characters w/ plot. Would've liked more of Saiman's new dynamic.

Kate as mother to a toddler didn't annoy me like I thought. Dali's need to be pregnant did. Adoption exists in post-Shift Atlanta & there's no reason to be so hyper-focused on becoming pregnant as a means to be a mother.

I continued to enjoy the magical worldbuilding & hope to see more stories in this world. #projectSAMS

Last book in the series.

Goes through all the side characters one after the other so we don't miss anyone.

So-so because the prologue was extremely poorly written. It was jarring.

If you've read Iron and Magic, not too much surprises you here. Conclusion is telegraphed well before the end. Would have been nice to have a couple of twists. That said, still a nice ending for the series. I'm not much interested in the sweep series. If there are Erra and Julie stories, I'd be interested.

One of the best final books in a series I‘ve read in a long long time. I felt the solution to Nimrod was a little rushed, but appreciated how the authors pulled characters and plots from their novellas to make sure this book provided a nice and complete ending, so make sure you read those! I definitely feel they didn‘t just cobble together a solution, and I can‘t wait for more books in this world.

GlassAsDiamonds This is what happens if I ignore Litsy for a while!! 😂😂😂 I like their stuff, I really do, particularly Innkeeper but their handling of the Maud novella is driving me *insane* & I‘m at this “whingy author, do not engage, just read the finished books” stage! 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂🤦🏻‍♀️ 4y
iread2much @GlassAsDiamonds which was the Maud novella? I haven actually read the InnKeeper series yet, I hated their Bayou series, so I put off reading the InnKeeper ones. This series is amazing though! And their new Hugh series is way better than I thought it would be 4y
GlassAsDiamonds @iread2much they‘re writing it at the moment. It‘s really very good mostly available for free on their website but they keep becoming incensed that people keep asking for the installments (they‘d originally said Tuesday & Friday, then there were delays because of a hand injury they hadn‘t mentioned, then the KD release). They keep going off the deep end at people asking but ignoring the flood of praise. A tad irritating but good writing! 🤦🏻‍♀️ 4y
iread2much @GlassAsDiamonds ahh, thanks! I will have to look into it. And they can‘t be as bad as Patrick Rothfuss (edited) 4y

An epic finale to one of my favorite series. This is probably the series I recommend the most and the amazing married writing team that is Ilona Andrews did not disappoint! Absolutely not a stand alone and I highly recommend reading the spin off Iron and Magic first. Sad to see the end of the main Kate and Curran story, but glad to see the world will continue!

Ilona Andrews just revealed the cover for the last Kate Daniels book!! I'm so excited but also so sad the series is coming to an end ☹️ I've gotten so attached to all of these characters. Luckily Andrews is such a prolific writer I know there will be lots of other great books even if this series is ending ☹️ Highly recommend this series for anyone into fantasy with great action and humor.
