The 2nd half of the book really picks up. This came out in 07 when Urban Fantasy was still THE genre. But everyone was over werewolves/vampires and there had to be more to it. There is too much happening for a first (short!) book, the world with intricate magical rules, power dynamic of species, werebears, obscure creatures of Slavic origin, knights AND then family dynamics AND love stories. but in the end I was intrigued. Kate‘s cool.

This series gets a lot of love, and I‘m going to persevere. But stacking the world building, with every magical thing from every pantheon and these long as heck chapters are not helping 🥲 I‘m sure it will come together

wanderinglynn Ooh, I hope it does come together for you. This is one of my faves. 2w
5feet.of.fury @wanderinglynn I‘m only on Chapter 3 so 🤞 A lot of people recommended it and I enjoyed book 1 of hidden legacy which I read recently. So I‘m expecting great things, I just gotta struggle through the set up. 2w

This passage was so relatable. I read this book a few years ago but this time around I took my time. It is urban fantasy set in the not so distant future, starts off a little choppy but overall engaging and darkly creative.

shanaqui The whole series surprised me by how great it was as things unfolded! 3mo

I love the hidden legacy series so decided to dive into this one while I wait for the next book and it was fantastic. I love the world they build that switches between times of tech and times of magic. Great characters and lots of action.

melissanorr This is one of my favorite series! 11mo
shanaqui I was amazed by how much worldbuilding there was in these books -- I went in way back when with such different expectations, and then I was completely blown away. I finally finished the series recently, and it's SUCH a journey! 11mo

#audiopuzzling while listening to Magic Bites & Magic Burns. I haven‘t read the books in several years & October seems like a good time to reacquaint myself with the world of Kate Daniels. But now I have to wait for book 3 as there‘s a 2-week hold.

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView 😁

1️⃣ Sylphrena (Syl for short) from “The Stormlight Archives”. 🧚🏻‍♀️

2️⃣ Humor! I love a book character that can make me laugh! Urban Fantasy especially has so many snarky characters with laugh-out-loud dialogue like Joanne Baldwin, Harry Dresden, Justine Jones, and from the tagged book, Kate Daniels! I still chuckle when I think of how Kate met the Beast Lord… “Here, kitty, kitty!” 😂🦁

TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 👍📖🌞📚 1y

1. I‘m fine with any setting as long as the story is good! 😁 But I do have a special weakness for gothic settings... foggy streets, chilly cemeteries, looming mansions! They make my spooky soul smile! 😱👻

2. I prefer books with female protagonists. There are so many books with male leads, it‘s refreshing when a female is the star. I‘ve tagged a book featuring one of my favorite sassy heroines!

I really wanted to like this one. A book club pick and the universe sounded really interesting, but I had a hard time finding any characters likable :/ Kate‘s character felt super one sided (“I‘m a hardass who‘s never afraid and always joking”) and then the second half of the book pretty much centered exclusively around tactless sexual violence against women. Nothing felt nuanced, or subtle. Bummer since it‘s a series I thought I could get into!

I‘ve been terrible at doing this every day but here is another series I cannot get enough of. The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. There is 10 main books, many side stories and side series as well though. The author keeps the series interesting throughout the entire series. The main character, Kate Daniels... she is just one badass that doesn‘t take no crap and walks the walk and also talks the talk! Haha

wanderinglynn One of my fave series! 2y

While the first book wasn‘t my favorite, I was curious about the next one and then I finished the 10 book series, so this is a review of the series rather than the first book. At first, I thought the waves of magic and tech were contrived but interesting. I loved the different myths the authors touch upon. The main character Kate is tough, independent, an expert fighter. If you like sword fights, magic, and monsters, a fun series.

Day 21 of the #Fallisbooked challenge by @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks and @OriginalCyn620

#tricks makes me think of magic which makes me think of the Kate Daniels series which makes me think of one of the greatest introductions for a character ever in an urban fantasy series, when Kate met Curran!

CURRAN - “What kind of a woman greets the Beast Lord with ‘here, kitty, kitty‘?”
KATE - “One of a kind.”

Alright, I‘m calling it. I didn‘t get a lot of reading done this weekend, but I finished 1 book and only have 2 hours left in my audiobook.

Saturday I felt like death and couldn‘t focus on reading, but listened to some of my audio. Today, I listened to my audio for a while during my errands.

I think I‘m just so exhausted on the weekends, I just want to watch tv and give my mind a rest 🤷🏻‍♀️

1. I have never listened to an audiobook! 😳 A friend of mine highly recommended the “Kate Daniels” series on audiobook, so “Magic Bites” will be the first one I try!

2. As a gamer, I feel there aren‘t enough female protagonists, so when I play video games where you choose your character‘s gender, I almost always play as a woman. I‘ve been a female Jedi, a female dark elf, and a female crime boss!

“Just what exactly in my track record gives you the idea that I‘m a nice person?”

People often tell me that I‘m not as nice as I seem - which usually just means I don‘t let them walk all over me.

I love Kate Daniels. Definitely time to reread the series.

Reread this to fit a SRP prompt, and still enjoyed it. I hadn‘t read this since it was new, so it was a nice reminder of why I love this series. They do get better, though.

Reading in the pit has gotten me some extra time, but only for things that don‘t require much concentration. Need to listen for my cues and be able to read in snips. But for the next five days I‘m off and can read more carefully!

Day 18 - Ugly Covers

I love these books by Ilona Andrews, but the covers are pretty terrible.

#30junebooks

wanderinglynn Yes! Especially the Burn for Me one, which looks like it‘s a trashy, cheap romance, but it‘s so much more. I love Ilona‘s books, but these definitely need a cover overhaul! 3y
annahenke Agreed. The covers have kept me from reading these. 3y
ravenlee I actually have always liked the covers, although I prefer the original model for the Kate Daniels series. But when the series started the covers were kind of unique, and a good way to differentiate this type of fantasy from high fantasy. Now the “badass girl on the cover” is soooo overdone. 3y

ravenlee I was talking specifically about the KD books. I agree that the Hidden Legacy covers are trashy, and don‘t really fit the story. I guess it‘s an Avon thing. At least the Kate covers kind of had something to do with the story. 3y

If I am being honest, it took me a while to get into this book. It is setup in an odd "time" where magic rolls through and various creatures mix with people. I felt the authors were a little repetitive, but overall good. Kate Daniels is a straight up shit talker, but thankfully she has sword skills to back it up. The characters are all pretty quirky and I blew right though this book after the first few chapters.

When life, responsibility, and adulting become too much I save my favorites for re-reading and they never disappoint:) Kate is independent, stubborn,and a loner in an Atlanta slowly crumbling from technology back into magical madness. She‘s a broke mercenary who suddenly needs to figure out who killed her Guardian. Madness, mayhem, and snarky smart-assedness ensues.

Thought this book would be awesome for #booked2018 for the sword on the cover, but I only got halfway through. I dont think the authors did a good job of explaining the world i was in...halfway though the book I still dont understand anyones powers or WTF is up with the vampires. /sigh
I am generally against overexplaning (Stephen king) but a general idea of how things work would have been nice

1. My family & my books make me happy!
2. My favorite books involve dystopian chaos & in most of those scenarios, I know that I would meet a speedy (& probably grisly) death. So I‘m going with the Magic Bites series where they have magic & fantastic creatures galore and even more importantly—they have indoor plumbing! And of course, Kate Daniels & I would be bff‘s!
