Magic Burns (Kate Daniels #2)
by Ilona Andrews
Summary: Down in Atlanta, tempers – and temperatures – are about to flare…
As a mercenary who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels has seen her share of occupational hazards. Normally, 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. Now Kate’s going to have to deal with problems on a much bigger scale: a divine one.
When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta’s paramilitary clan of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes much more at stake. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest – and battle for power. 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…

I think I’m really going to love the Kate Daniels series. Magic Burns was even better than the first book. I feel like I understand the world and the characters a little bit more. It was full of action and mystery and suspense. I love the world of the Kate Daniels series. It’s strange, but the author did a wonderful job describing scenery and creatures. Everything seemed extremely vivid.
I love Kate’s character and how she views other people. I understand the way she felt about the Order and how she felt about the pack and where their loyalties were. It’s like she gets it, but doesn’t want to be a part of it. I love the judgment calls she makes and I think she’s got a great heart, despite her rigid exterior.
I’m intrigued by Curran, the Beast Lord. I think it’s a bit more obvious in the second book that he cares about her or is intrigued by her to some degree. And I think Kate actually feels the same way and just won’t admit it to herself. I hope they both end up going somewhere, but I’m anxious to see how they’d word anything out, especially since Curran’s priorities will always include the pack first.
I can’t wait to continue the series and I definitely recommend it. I wasn’t quite sure after book one, but book two has sealed the deal. It’s a good series and I know it’ll be worth my time to continue.
