“Shapeshifting tigress Dali Harimau may be a powerful healer and magic user, but she’s far from what might be called “normal”. She dislikes the violence and bloodshed that are a way of life for most of her kind, even going so far as to become a vegetarian. The last thing she wants is trouble…
Jim Shrapshire is an original, hardcore badass. A jaguar shifter, he’s been tasked with keeping Atlanta’s Cat Clan in line, which he does with swift and lethal force when necessary. His only soft spot is for the petite Dali, whose kindness he calls upon when he is injured.
When Dali is approached by a desperate woman whose grandmother has vanished, Jim is concerned enough to help investigate. But what they find may just be the end of them—an enemy whose skill in the dark arts is matched only by their willingness to kill anyone in their way…”
I have had this novella to read for some time and it was great to be back in the Kate Daniels world. This was an excellent novella featuring Jim and Dali; I love reading about those two. I especially enjoy all the unique magic Dali performs.
This was an excellent mystery involving various mythologies and curses. We get to see Dali exercise both her curse magic and her Bali tiger magic. It was very entertaining and interesting.
Of course there were some excellent scenes between Jim and Dali as well. I love that we get to see a more vulnerable side of Jim and that we get to see into Dali’s head and follow her thoughts. These two have excellent chemistry and I like them even more than Kate and Curran as a couple.
It was immensely fun to dive back into the Kate Daniels world for awhile. I always enjoy the Andrews’ writing style; it’s just so fun and easy to read and I am always sucked right into the story. I love the balance of magic, action, and romance in these books.
Overall this was an awesome addition to the Kate Daniels world. I would highly recommend for fans of the series. Even if you haven’t read any of these series you would probably enjoy this; although I would recommend at least reading the Magic Dreams novella before you read this one because that is where Jim and Dali’s story starts.
