Another great Ilona Andrews quote

As part of my re-read of the Kate Daniels series, I dove back into MAGIC GIFTS and came across this awesome description of Jim, one of my favourite characters in the series:

Tall, his skin the color of rich coffee, and dressed all in black, Jim looked like he was carved from a block of solid muscle. Logic said that at some point he must’ve been a baby and then a child, but looking at him one was almost convinced that some deity had touched the ground with its scepter and proclaimed, “There shall be a badass,” and Jim had sprung into existence, fully formed, complete with clothes, and ready for action.

IlonaAndrews-MagicGiftsA dinner date after a hard day at work sounds heavenly. Of course, when that date is between the Beast Lord and Kate Daniels, things don’t go as planned. Before you know it, undead are running amok, heads are being chopped off, lawyers are deployed and used with extreme prejudice, and drunk vikings are calling people out.

My review

A favourite quote from MAGIC BURNS

I’m re-reading the Kate Daniels series in anticipation of MAGIC BREAKS and here’s a great quote from MAGIC BURNS, the second book in the series. It’s Kate’s description of Derek in Chapter 2. My favourite part is the last line:

He had a fresh, clean-cut face and velvet brown eyes framed in embarassingly long eyelashes. If it wasn’t for the promise of a masculine square jaw, he would be bordering on “pretty.” On the plus side, if he ever had to fight through a room full of adolescent girls, he only needed to blink a couple times, and they would all faint.”

Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews (Kate Daniels #2)As a mercenary who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels knows how waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow across Atlanta like a tide. But once every seven years, a flare comes, a time when magic runs rampant. When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta’s paramilitary clan of shape shifters, she quickly realizes much more is at stake. The stolen maps are only the opening gambit in an epic tug of war between two gods hoping for rebirth, and if Kate can’t stop the cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive.
