Review: Magic Bleeds

Is this really only book 4 of the series? There is so much that happens in this book, that I just can’t see how much further it can go. I did enjoy the adventure this book took me on though. There is a lot of Kate’s history and family explained in this book, and it really made me feel like I could understand Kate. It never felt info-dumpy, just like a story within a story. Kate and Curran’s relationship is hella crazy, as usual. It has so many ups and downs, and I’m still in disbelief over everything that happens […]

Review: Magic Strikes

Oh my gosh, this book was made of awesome! There was so much humour, and emotion, and action, and just everything. I feel like just flailing and screaming keywords from the best parts, in true fangirl fashion. PIE! HOT TUB! Derek! How could they?! Picking up Julie! CURRAN! CURRAN! CURRAN! I can’t stop. It was all just so good. And so hard to talk about anything without spoilers. There was so much series development, and yet also a fully formed single book plot. This is definitely the best of the series so far, and one that makes me want to […]

Review: Kitty Goes to Washington

In a refreshing twist on the usual super confident alpha heroine featured in most urban fantasy series, Kitty Norville is not any of those things yet. She wants to be, kind of, but is more of a wary, submissive shifter. This book saw a lot of growth in Kitty towards that confident personality. When she goes to Washington to testify at a Senate hearing, things seem to happening, good and bad, and just keep escalating. She has run ins with the local vampires, shifters, and even the government agency that is focus of the Senate hearing. With all that action, […]

Review: Magic Burns

I really loved the first book in this series, and was really disappointed in this second book. I was tempted to just give up several times because the story was not keeping my attention. I think my main issue with the story was how removed Kate felt from the action. It seemed like every time something was happening, Kate was watching from the sidelines and remarking on the action. I know she was in on it sometimes, but it just didn’t feel like it. In the first book, I really enjoyed both Derek and Curran’s characters. Neither one was very […]

Review: Kitty and the Midnight Hour

I feel like I’m one of the last people to start this series. But I’ve started, and hope to get all the way through. The first book is a great beginning. Kitty is a unique character in that she isn’t an alpha werewolf, she’s is most decidedly at the bottom of the pack. She does show considerable growth throughout the story, however doesn’t “magically” or unrealistically become an alpha overnight. This book gave me a unique look at werewolf packs. There is an enormous amount of politics within the pack. There is also a lot of behaviour that is uncomfortable. […]

Review: Magic Bites

This was a book full of action and unforgetable characters. A great start to the series, I finished the book wanting to get to know more about Curran, go on more adventures with Kate, and hear what trouble Derek gets into next. Kate was a flawed, yet likable character. She has a snarky attitude that fits the urban fantasy genre very well. She is reluctant to accept help from anyone, even though she seems to have a tendency to get in over her head. Curran is hot stuff. He makes a good hero and counterpart to Kate, being powerful, sexy, […]
