When magic strikes and Atlanta goes to pieces, it's a job for Kate Daniels…

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 finds herself with a personal stake and a whole new level of problem. As her investigations lead her to the Midnight Games - the invitation-only, no-holds-barred, ultimate preternatural fighting tournament - she uncovers a dark plot that may forever alter the face of Atlanta's shapeshifting community…

My thoughts:

This series is just getting better and better in my opinion - this was my favourite so far.

I seriously love how far Kate has come already. A lot more of her past is revealed in this book and her character is tested to the limits. She was everything I love in a heroine - strong, witty and the cool sword skills are a definite bonus. 

This book is the kind of read that is more or less impossible to put down. It's full of so much suspense that I couldn't bear to stop reading just so I could find out how everything was going to end. I was so worried for the characters the whole way through which is a definite testament to the great writing.

If you haven't read this series then I seriously recommend you start. So far it's what any fan of urban fantasy looks for in a series - it's hilarious, full of action with a bit of heart stopping romance thrown in and it has amazing characters that you can't help but grow to love. 


My rating: 10/10
