Official Description from Ilona Andrew’s website:
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.
It’s a volatile, screwed-up world. Magic feeds on technology, gnawing down on skyscrappers until most of them topple and fall, leaving only skeletal husks behind. Monsters prowl the ruined streets, werebears and werehyenas stalk their prey; 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 sometimes even trained killers make friends and fall in love, and when the universe tries to kick them in the face, they kick back.
This is definitely my favorite UF series. As a whole, I usually prefer more romance driven books, but the romance that build in the background of this series between Kate and Beast Lord Curran is quite swoony and the unique world-building, action-driven plot lines, and snarky laugh-out-loud humor kept me highly entertained.

I’ve been buying this books for quite a while but don’t have them all yet. I’m one of those people who likes to have them all before starting on them. I can’t wait.
Heather Scully says
The world Andrews creates with this series is nothing short of mesmerizing and spectacular. I love Kate Daniels and the books she has chosen to spin off from them. I cannot wait to see what Andrews comes up with next.

I started reading these books because of your review. I can’t get enough of them. I feel like I was living under a rock somewhere because I hadn’t heard of this series. I know *gasp* My family thanks you, they are now eating on paper plates, lots of take out and they have learned to do their own laundry……I have a lot of reading to do!! 😀
