The world has suffered a magic apocalypse. We pushed the technological progress too far, and now magic returned with a vengeance. It comes in waves, without warning, and vanishes as suddenly as it appears. When magic is up, planes drop out of the sky, cars stall, electricity dies. When magic is down, guns work and spells fail.

Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren’t for magic… One moment magic dominates, and cars stall and guns fail. The next, technology takes over and the defensive spells no longer protect your house from monsters. Here skyscrapers topple under onslaught of magic; werebears and werehyenas prowl through the ruined streets; and the Masters of the Dead, necromancers driven by their thirst of knowledge and wealth, pilot blood-crazed vampires with their minds. In this world lives Kate Daniels. Kate likes her sword a little too much and has a hard time controlling her mouth. The magic in her blood makes her a target, and she spent most of her life hiding in plain sight. But when Kate’s guardian is murdered, she must choose to do nothing and remain safe or to pursue his preternatural killer. Hiding is easy, but the right choice is rarely easy…

5.0 Magic Bites
Magic Bites - by Ilona AndrewsWhile this book did have some continuity problems, it was not anything I really can't handle. I loved this introduction to this series. The witty *rolls eyes* banter between the protagonists is a hoot. And it is especially wonderful if you read the companion piece, whic...

4.5 Magic Bites
I don't read a lot of urban fantasy, but I loved Magic Bites! The action is fantastic and it features a badass heroine. Mix that with a ton of paranormal lore and mythology, and it is a truly engrossing read. The world of Kate Daniels is a post-apocalyptic one, but different from most in fiction. ...

0.0 Sick Reading: Ilona Andrews
I got super sick last week and read a half dozen trashy and less trashy PNR/UF books to salve my soul. Also, I managed to tear through all of the Mercy Thompson books, so I'm a little at loose ends as far as light reading goes. I hit a lot of different series to try them out, and next up is Ilona An...

3.0 I liked it better this time
During the first read I was too annoyed by Kate's obliviousness. This time, since I already knew and was just paying attention to the surrounding details while I waited for her to catch up I got several thing from it: Darek says Crest wouldn't be good for Kate because he wouldn't be able to say no...

3.5 Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, #1) (Audiobook)
This was a pretty decent introduction to this world. It's well-written and doesn't clock you over the head (too much) with the world-building. You learn only what you need to know for the story, but it still sets things up for future books and leaves room for expansion as the series goes on. Kate...
