This was the eighth book in the Kate Daniels series and it was an awesome one. This series is one of my absolute (if not my absolute) favorite urban fantasy series. I love the world, the action, the characters, and the humor. Spoilers ahead for those who haven’t read previous books in this series.
I listened to this on audiobook and I absolutely love listening to these on audiobook. The narrator does an awesome job and sounds exactly like I imagine Kate would sound. She conveys emotion well and does an excellent job with different character voices.
Kate and Curran have broken from the Pack and are making a life for themselves. The Pack can’t afford to pay Curran what they owe him so they offer him shares in the Mercenary Guild…which is a complete mess right now. It’s not a great deal but Curran is determined to make it work. Meanwhile George comes to Kate and Curran for help; her boyfriend is missing and she wants help finding him. As Kate and Curran dig into the case, they find themselves fighting more and more bizarre creatures. It seems that maybe all these strange things are connected and an ancient evil is stalking the streets of Atlanta.
I adore these books. Kate, Curran, and Julie are awesome characters and I love reading about them. I love all the side characters too, they have a lot of depth and are incredibly interesting. These books have absolutely perfectly done action scenes and lot of humor as well; it makes this such a fun series to read.
In this book the storyline involving George’s SO’s disappearance is resolved and the plot involving Kate and her father makes some progress. There is a dinner scene between Kate and Roland that was highly entertaining.
Overall I absolutely love this series. It is a perfect blend of action, urban fantasy, awesome world-building, engaging characters, fantastic plot, and humor. This whole series has been incredibly entertaining to read and I highly recommend it to all urban fantasy fans out there. This is one of the best urban fantasy series out there right now.
