I read the book through in about 2-3 hours and I am not a fast reader (ordinarily). The book is that good that it keeps the reader turning pages and wanting to know whats next. I had also been eagerly awaiting the release of this book which had raised my expectations, still Ilona Andrews has not failed to deliver! A truly enjoyable series!!

Gist: Fantasy, changeling story with romantic element. Futuristic with magic. Protagonist is a kick-ass chick with a masterpiece “story-telling quality” + wonderful humor between the pages.

Third book of Ilona Andrew’s Kate Daniels series:

Book 1 is Magic Bites
Book 2 is Magic Burns.

Verdict: A must read!!

Excerpt quoted from Ilona Andrews‘ site:
Drafted into working for the Order of Merciful Aid, mercenary Kate Daniels has more paranormal problems than she knows what to do with these days. And in Atlanta, where magic comes and goes like the tide, that’s saying a lot. But when Kate’s werewolf friend Derek is discovered nearly dead, she must confront her greatest challenge yet. As her investigation leads her to the Midnight Games – an invitation only, no holds barred, ultimate preternatural fighting tournament – she and Curran, the Lord of the Beasts, uncover a dark plot that may forever alter the face of Atlanta’s shapeshifting community…
