English View all editions and formats. Daniels, Kate -- Fictitious character -- Fiction. It's entirely me, and every time I read these books, I immediately feel at home. This series speaks to me in more than one way. One person found this helpful. Carrie Williams Top Contributor: I pretty much expected everyone to die. Every time there was a nice lull in the action and happy moments cropped up, I waited for something horrible and traumatizing to happen.

I mean, sure, there are some dead bodies left in the wake of the happenings of this book, but not nearly the amount I expected and there was a big one that never got into that dead body pile, unfortunately. Without spoilers, in general, the story revolves around Kate coming to terms with her lineage and fighting to get to the big bad. I say get to because the book spent a really long time taking Kate to Roland.

There are meetings, more meetings, planning, castles, cells, more castles, more cells, some camping, lots of vampires, and then Roland. Maybe Kate just felt like she needed a tougher path? Also, there were some notably absent characters for a fake final book: Saimon, Grendel, and Julie. See all 1, reviews. Customers who viewed this item also viewed. Magic Strikes Kate Daniels.

I don't give a fuck about Ascanio or his relationship with Kate, he's a nobody, Julie should have been the one that ended up on Kate's mission. But oh no, it had to be a guy instead. Never mind actually developing her existing relationship with Julie, lets instead shove some random teenage guy in the story that Kate can mentor and interact with. No, just no.

She sounded like a pathetic YA heroine. I could understand her saying she missed and loved Curran once or twice but she kept banging on about him even when she was in danger and people around her were dying. And she was so mushy and sentimental about it. It really put me off her character, Kate was never like that before.

She focused on what was going on around her and kept her cool, but all of sudden she turned into some loser Curran fangirl. Ugh, I hated that part of her character. Also, she was kind of a damsel in distress in this one. Yea, everyone needs saving occasionally no matter how badarse they are but Kate's mantra of Curran rescuing her made her seem more like a useless princess rather than the kickarse nutter I knew and loved. I wouldn't have minded Curran saving her but I would have preferred if Kate kept trying to save herself even if she was failing instead of sighing and fantasizing about Curran coming to the rescue.

I doubt it'll be shown in the next book. She's such a cool, useful, and fun character yet she was nowhere to be seen. I would have rather had her as one of the prominent side characters instead of the run-of-the-mill male scowling-growling shifter Kate's usually with.

I'm hoping that's not the case, and instead there'll be continuing, interesting arcs in the next few books. I'm guessing the series is back on track for me because even though I adored and despised this one all at once, I'm excited to read the next book in the series.

For Ilona and Andrew Gordon, the husband-and-wife writing team behind the pen name Ilona Andrews, Magic Breaks is the ultimate show of strength. These two have nothing left to prove, their writing is reliably excellent and funny as all get-out.

Magic Breaks is the book in which all their skill and their significant experience come to light. This is a pivotal point in the Kate Daniels series — a seve For Ilona and Andrew Gordon, the husband-and-wife writing team behind the pen name Ilona Andrews, Magic Breaks is the ultimate show of strength. It is hard for both Kate and the reader to imagine a positive outcome. Her constant sarcastic remarks stopped this from turning into gloomy read, even when there was very little hope on the horizon.

So many important things happened. So many changes and new developments. I liked seeing Kate working and fighting alone. Her interactions with Hugh are so epic. I know they'll never be together, but I can't ignore their chemistry. Just to spice things up. He's eager to do everything for her.

We can see it when he slaughtered everyone at the Order, just so he could revenge Kate for the humiliation she endured. He even defied Roland and did things on his own for her. I don't know what Hugh ultimate intentions are. I would like to see him being converted into a good guy or at least a benevolent villain does this make sense?

I would have loved Julie to be the one, when she grows up, but her story took another direction. I liked Ghastek also in this book. His story was interesting and I like how his character has developed. Yes, I want to know more of him. He's not a tool in Roland's hands.

He has his own mind. Another character I liked in this book was Desandra. I was sceptical about her in the last book, but she really is a strong woman. I'm so glad Jennifer is dead. Desandra is a better Alpha than she was. And she is soooo funny. In a sick way. I know he's so powerful and he's only playing with Kate now. He's testing her limits and he hasn't been challenged in a long time.

So Kate is spicing up things for him. Being a father is a new experience and he is so intrigued by her.

I can't wait to see more of them. That epilogue was just great! And finally Curran. Until now I've disliked him and I've hated him. I didn't buy his motives and I didn't believe his intentions. I really liked the part when Kate was fighting Hugh and Curran appeared. He really knows how to make an entrance. I've said in my older reviews that I began liking Curran only in book Maybe he really loves Kate now. You better Curran, because I can dislike you so easily!!

Magic breaks

Just like that! So, do I forgive him now? Yes, Curran, you may live. After all Kate loves him. As always, I'd prefer Hugh, but there was never anything between them, Kate never doubted her feelings toward Curran. But, I would want to know what would have happened if Kate had met Hugh before she met Curran. I would want there to have been a possibility.

But I still liked it. The End. Now go read the book. DON'T click on it if you didn't read the book! Go read the book!! The Ascanio and Derek duo. Clueless, clueless Ghastek. And Hugh. Oh my god - Hugh. The bad guy is so very bad and I fucking loved it. I sat up at attention for every scene that he was in what can I say? The dude is charismatic. His interactions with Kate always had me at the edge of my seat and I loved how she handled him. The one that starts off with her casually leaning against the wall cleaning her sword as she waits for him at the crime scene where both their wards were up.

But, nothing tops Kate. She rocked. And end. Oh, and you know what? Am I still pissed off at him from book 6? Guess so. The not so good stuff: Nor am I feeling the deep, deep soul love. Not only that, I thought it was even a little cheesy.

Again, I realize this is probably just one of my personal annoyances, but whatever. It annoyed me. It just felt like a bone thrown by the authors. Even for appearances so short that you kind of wonder why even bother.

I know you guys really liked Roman so here you go! This should keep you happy, now shut up. It was unnecessary filler. There was so much potential for how that could have played out! But it was just, eh, cover blown, The End for that side plot. Wtf was the point?! I wanted Kate to fight him, not Curran!! Grrrr, still not over that one. I kinda just went with the flow and was cool with it, but I really think it could have and should have been executed better.

In particular, the showdown with Roland happened in multiple parts that came off as a bit messily fragmented to me. And Hilba. I did a little, but just a little. To me, this simply felt like a book 7 out of a part series. So it worked for me. Also, I felt that the Roland that is finally portrayed in the flesh here totally matches with what the authors have meticulously set up throughout the series. I was satisfied. Another year of waiting begins.

I kinda feel like being crazy View all 63 comments. My favorite books in the series, and it has all the things that I wanted from this series. Action, murder, intense pack rivalry, magic, and all this without the Kate-Curran relationship drama. Hugh was a big disappoint here. He came, created some ruckus, literally stole Kate, and put her in a magical prison. But then our hero came against all odds, fought t Reread.

But then our hero came against all odds, fought the bad guy, and told the girl that they are forever. Climax was what shocked me the most.

Leaving everything so easily, I was not expecting that but that what people do in love. I better start reading it now. If you haven't read the book then I wouldn't advise continuing. Let's start from the beginning He's gone off to make a deal with another pack and Kate has to deal with anything pack realted until he returns. Of course this is exactly the time when the shit hit the fan. Hugh shows up at the Conclave a meeting 4. Hugh shows up at the Conclave a meeting between the People and the Pack bearing the dead body of one of the Masters of the Dead who was obviously murdered by a shapeshifter and demands the killer be delivered to him by the next day.

Now Kate must find who did it, avoid Hugh's goons out to get her, and find a way to punish the killer without either appearing weak by delivering a shapeshifter to the People or starting a war by not delivering. This part of the book lacks excitement.

In typical Kate fashion she is running around in circles, trying to find the perpetrator, trying to keep everyone alive, trying to find all the right solutions. I once commented on a review of mine that what I loved most in Ilona Andrews' writing was that they didn't fill page after page with pointless plot twists and obstacles just to increase the length of the book. That wasn't exactly true in this one.

I got the feeling that half of the first pages of the book could have been avoided. This is not to say though that I didn't enjoy it. There were the one-liners and the bickering between Ascanio and Derek, and Kate's badassness and generally all the things that make Kate Daniels a great series.

And of course there were two revelations that stood out. This is were the Kate sat in that prison and waited for Curran to save her. This is so not Kate!! Voron put you on the edge of that cliff again and again until he conditioned you to claw onto life. I can put you down with one hit. The Kate we've come to know would have done exactly that. She wouldn't have sat there on the brink of death and expect that Curran will somehow, magically save her! But I did like the put down Kate gave Hugh.

I kept going. Oh wait, you did, and first I kicked your ass, then Curran broke your spine and threw you into a fire. How does that feel, Hugh? So how about you shut up and go back to what you do best.

I'm not gonna tell you exactly what. I'll be so sad if Kate does have to kill Roland in the end. And the end of the book Favourite scene in the book: It was a part of me for over twenty years.

Oh screw it. Grandmother gave me another one. Landon spun the wheel. The Land Rover nearly careened, turning off the road. Sarrat smoked on my lap. No, this sword emanated power. It coiled around me. It liked me. Landon paced back and forth, his eyes a little wild. Landon stared at me through the windshield, turned around, paced back and forth, and stared at me again.

Dec 01, Evgeny rated it liked it Shelves: Curran had to go away because somebody set an extremely poor disguised trap for him did anybody had any doubts it was a trap made to draw him away from the very beginning? Now it is up to Kate to attend a meeting between the two most powerful groups in Atlanta: Once again, even a blind person with extreme mental deficiency would not smell anot Buddy read with Armina , Eilonwy , Asya , and Monty Cupcake.

Once again, even a blind person with extreme mental deficiency would not smell another trap; well guess what: As a result of things happened during the meeting Kate has only very limited time to stop all-out war between the groups above.

By the way, a note for people who read the series: I consider Jim to be a failure as a security lead; he fails at this in every main book of the series, no exception. My biggest grip with this book and any other which have a similar problem is: There is an info leak from the high level of Pack hierarchy. The culprit was obvious to me from the second page; according to my buddy readers they also figured it out using different logic which means there were several ways to arrive to the solution.

Heck, the person in question was practically wearing a sign saying, "I am the culprit". My point is Kate and Jim did not see it. In my personal opinion the trope where authors make their characters temporarily stupid to keep the plot rolling is extremely lame. The other - minor - problems with the novel I have include the following: The only reason I gave this novel 3. It one ignores the aforementioned stupidity; the rest of it is really funny, to the point that I rate just this part minus the latter with 5 easy stars.

The moment the story became serious it started to go downhill. Please do not get me wrong, I am judging this one too harsh. The only reason for such judgment is that the best books of the series raise the plank really high and this one does not have that quality.

It is still a good book, but also very frustrating to read due to the problems I mentioned. View all 8 comments. Jul 30, carol. I re-read this yesterday as a way of keeping awake post night shift switching one's body clock around can be a pain in the neck.

Sometimes literally. It's a challenging reading mood--I need something to engage me without too much brain-work, but not stupid enough that I lose my very limited patience. And what do you know? Magic Breaks worked. At first, there were doubts, largely arising out of the structure and pacing of the initial pages. Magic Breaks opens with a 'Thank you to the readers,' w I re-read this yesterday as a way of keeping awake post night shift switching one's body clock around can be a pain in the neck.

Magic Breaks opens with a 'Thank you to the readers,' which, while kind, seemed misplaced and more appropriate to end notes. It helps to have the knowledge that this was originally conceived as the final book in the series arc. However, the wild popularity of the series and the development of a number of storylines has meant that the authors could legitimately continue to play in their world and so another three book arc is in the works.

Gratitude is followed by a listing of 'Cast of characters,' clearly misplaced. If you haven't read all the books by now, book seven is a lousy place to start.

If one must include it, an appendix is most appropriate. Finally, we get to the meat of the book, or so it seems: Only it isn't; it's pretty much a short story that helps fill in details for those who might be new to the series with a segue into the beginning of the plot at the end. Again, can I stress, lousy place to start? I don't know; I don't market these things. It is the debut of the first hardcover in the series, so I understand the publisher positioning it to appeal to a new audience.

I just wish it would have been a little less obvious that the beginning wasn't geared to new readers or as a marketing tool.


So when the plot actually starts, Pack Leader Curran is called out of town to meet with an outlying wolf-pack who owns a silver mine and is indiscreet about buyers.

Oh-so coincidentally, he is gone during the mid-winter Conclave, the meeting between the opposing factions of The People and the Pack. Curran expects no trouble, so of course the reader realizes there will be plenty.

At the Conclave, Roland's second-in-command Hugh appears, dumping a murdered vampire navigator's body on the group and accusing the Pack of the murder. Kate conceals shock at Hugh's reappearance, endeavors to discover the details of the crime and navigates a politically acceptable solution, all while worrying about Curran's safety. At the tension-packed ha-ha follow-up meeting, she's mysteriously teleported with Ghastek to a water-filled prison and then things really spiral out of control.

For me, pacing was one of the biggest troubles of the book. The beginning filler and the slow start lead to action-packed investigative scenes which mostly alternate from pauses to explosive action.

In theory, pauses are appropriate for planning the explosive action, but it feels more like a campfire that's having a hard time catching. Story drags again when Kate is imprisoned.

The first time I read it, the prison scene was an eye-rolling waste of time that mostly served to reinforce sentiment the series reader already knows. But in terms of a conclusion book, time spent on reflection makes sense, as well as those moments of emotional intimacy with a nominal enemy. After rescue seriously, how can that be a spoiler? Nice character interaction, interesting world reveals, family revelations and psychedelic architecture all contribute to the kind of action, dialogue and inventiveness that made me a fan of the series.

The ending was absolutely perfect, both in structure of the story and in emotional tone. I could see how the dramatic arc could have ended at this point and would have found it satisfying. However, I'm sincerely glad the Andrews are continuing the series, because I think there's so much more of their interesting world to visit.

Three star beginning, five star ending. Averages, you know? View all 3 comments. I promise, no spoilers at all, I barely even talk about the plot because spoilers suck.

Kate Daniels(Series) · OverDrive (Rakuten OverDrive): eBooks, audiobooks and videos for libraries

I have been waiting for this, and it is everything I didn't know I wanted. It's moments like this that I question why the hell I even try to review books. Then I have to check myself because I'm an adult, with a book blog and should have my shit together. Let's be real, mmkay? This ish is magnificent. Now, I'm not talking about just Magic Breaks, I'm talking about this powerhouse of a series. How do they keep writing books that are this good?

Everyone knows that long running series tend to fade, authors get bored or uninspired, plots become repetitive, not this duo, they deliver every fucking time. I've heard the grumbles of some longtime fans that are not pleased with this installment, le sigh. Magic Breaks is fantastic! The characters in this series are so authentic that it can be alarming when they do something that you don't percieve as them.

I can see why some have coined "anti-Kate" behavior but from my point of view, extenuating circumstances and all that jazz can make a bitch be crazy.

Just saying. Typically this series reads as though it effortlessly came together, and perhaps that's the magic in it but the last two books have felt different, but it's a good thing, people. Sometimes for us characters to grow they must be pushed in a direction they don't necessarily want to go in, and that's exactly what this feels like.

This book actually reads very much like the first installment, lots of things happening, but without a lot of obvious reasoning. More a showcase of controlled circumstances in order to lay down the foundation for a new direction.

In many ways this is a first installment, as in the first that visibly marks the end and I find it very bittersweet but also thrilling. So, why the 4 stars instead of 5? Well… there is a section where things get weird. Real weird. You'll know it when you get there. This is the third review I've written, because I keep derailing into plot points and I just refuse to do that to you.

This is all I can say for now. Curran and the stance he takes. Kate going absolutely ballistic. Andrea because love. That fucking ending. My other reviews for this series: This series is the hand giving loves. I am happy. I'll work on my review and publish soon, but for now. Jul 13, Bradley rated it it was amazing Shelves: Want epicbadassery?

Well, don't let the opening of the book fool you, this one ends with a real bang.

And you know what? The only way to prevent relationship troubles is to make sure there's lots of out of town business meetings. Of course Kate gets thrown into the blowback from the previous novel.

Kate Daniels is my favorite character, and I love reading her journey. August re-read: I've loved this book every time I read it, but I appreciate it even more on this read.

I don't know what to say - beyond what I've said - because there are so many things happening that to say anything is to spoil. But there are nuances that I can see now that I just missed before. I'm loving this re-read.

I both love and hate when each new book c May re-read. I both love and hate when each new book comes out. I get more story, but I'm one step closer to the edge. October re-read: This is my second or third read of this book. When I started reading it this time, I was amazed and shocked that I hadn't yet written a review for it.

I usually do that immediately upon finishing the first time. But what I realized, as I got further and further into the book, was that to review this was to have paragraph after paragraph full of spoilers. There's no avoiding talking about certain things, there's no way to be vague and still give an idea of what happens and what it means. There's no way to even start without giving away things that have been going on in the last six books. So, I guess I'll start with this warning: Spoilers ahead for everything through Magic Rises Book 6.

Follow the Author

And I still don't know what to say. If you hated the relationship angst of the last book, be assured there's none of that here. If you love the fast-paced roller-coaster, I can't say that this will exactly fill the bill. But if you're looking to find out what happens next, see Kate at her ass-kicking best, find out what happens when everything hits the fan, and see one hell of a climax, then this is the book. Kate's secret is all but an open secret now.

So many people know it she may as well have taken an ad out in the paper announcing it. But that doesn't mean that she's open and free with herself to anyone that asks.

Something that still frustrates that alphas of the Pack. I can't say that I feel too much sympathy for their not knowing when they treat her and Curran as they do most of the time, but I do love so many people in the Pack. Anyway, when Hugh shows up in Atlanta looking for Kate, there's only a few people that are surprised at the fact that they have history.

But when war looms on the horizon, and Kate's the one who can stop it, she's - once again - putting herself between the Pack and danger. Do they appreciate it? Not nearly as much as they should.

Let me talk about Hugh for a moment, because I didn't get the chance in my review for the last book didn't want to spoil things too much.
