About Magic Bites:

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 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 is the first book of the Kate Daniels story which I recently realized that I haven’t reviewed yet! So this is a retrospective review hence I’ve read this book ages ago. By now there are 4 books in the series already and it just keeps getting better! Click here to see my review of the most recent release of this series, Magic Bleeds. This review applies to all the books in the series. If I am to give a rating to the series as a whole I would give it a 5 out of 5. Is it obvious that I am an Ilona Andrews die hard fan?! 😉

Masterpiece. The story telling quality is very compelling and I would give it a 5 out of 5. The author weaves a magical world of Atlanta and make it seem all too possible. I would give the world building a 5 out of 5. The story leaves you with characters which walks around a readers’ head long after you’ve read the book that you can’t wait for the next installment to get published! I would give the character building another 5 out of 5.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 cherries
