Kate Daniels has quit the Order of Merciful Aid, but starting her own business isn't easy when the Order starts disparaging her good name. And being the mate of the Beast Lord doesn't bring in the customers, either. So when Atlanta's premier Master of the Dead asks for help with a vampire, Kate jumps at the chance. Unfortunately, this is one case where Kate should have looked before she leapt.


  • Five for five, this is still one of the best urban fantasy series out there

    By Savvy Apper
    Kate Daniels is an action packed urban fantasy series with superb writing, great character development in a fantastically gritty, wonderfully detailed post-apocalyptic urban setting. In this fifth installment for the series, the stakes are even higher with potential apocalypse on the way. Many authors falter as soon as they put their protagonists together, but Andrews does an excellent job of portraying Kate and Curran as they attempt to settle into a relationship. The side stories of supporting characters are not brushed aside but rather are well-integrated into the larger story. We also get a nice bombshell of new information for Kate to ponder about her heritage and the promise of more things to come in the next two (hopefully more!) books. Also be sure to check out Magic Gifts - a fun short by Andrews featuring Kate and Curran.

    These books get better and better! Start from the beginning and read them all you will not be disappointed.
  • Great book...great series!

    By TreeTalker
    A lot of urban fantasy series start to take a nose dive after the first three books. I was so relieved that this wasn't the case with the Kate Daniels series. The fourth book Magic Slays was another well crafted and fulfilling story. I'm looking forward to seeing where the new developments in book four take this exciting series.
  • Atrocious Processing

    By TrueB
    Nothing to do with the content, the formatting of this ebook is shameful. The Prologue does not appear in the TOC, causing me to miss it when I started. The text is interspersed with "{Page#} ILONA ANDREWS" and there are numerous typos. I know its a cheap mass market escapist urban fantasy novel, but you would think that they would have put a little more effort into typesetting and formatting. At least they use em and en-dashes correctly. Im no expert, Im sure there are errors in this complaint, but Im not paid to do this either. I haven't finished it yet. I've liked all the others, but wading through the lack of care in the packaging on this one is souring my experience.
