This is the first book in the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews.
Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren’t for magic…
One moment magic dominates, and cars stall and guns fail. The next, technology takes over and the defensive spells no longer protect your house from monsters. Here skyscrapers topple under the onslaught of magic; werebears and werehyenas prowl through the ruined streets; and the Masters of the Dead, necromancers driven by their thirst of knowledge and wealth, pilot blood-crazed vampires with their minds.
In this world lives Kate Daniels. Kate likes her sword a little too much and has a hard time controlling her mouth. The magic in her blood makes her a target, and she spent most of her life hiding in plain sight.
But when Kate’s guardian is murdered, she must choose to do nothing and remain safe or to pursue his preternatural killer. Hiding is easy, but the right choice is rarely easy…
This was a pretty good read. :)
I enjoy the Kate Daniels character - she is tough and no - nonsense and has a smart mouth and most times - a crappy attitude. LOL
Magic Bites has plenty of action and I enjoy that - but it moves slow. I don't know why - but it took me 2 days to read this 260 page book.
I like the whole idea of magic overwhelming the city - coming on and off line at the drop of a hat. This is a very cool world the authors have created and I am interested in finding out more about Kate and this world she lives in. :)
I give Magic Bites 3 out of 5 stars. :)
