    Description

    In the second book in number-one New York Times best-selling author Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series, tempers - and temperatures - are rising!

    A mercenary in magic-torn Atlanta who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels has seen it all - and some things she couldn't even have imagined. Normally, waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow like an ocean current. But once every seven years, a paranormal flare comes and brings magic like a tidal wave. Now Kate faces problems on a much bigger scale: a divine one.

    When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta's paramilitary organization of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes the stakes. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the first contest in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can't stop their cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive.

    So good!

    I had issues with the first book, but this did not deter me from checking out book 2. People love this series and so I decided to give the series one more chance and since I had my monthly freebie from Audible, I decided to get this one.


    Kate is a mercenary who cleans up after magic goes wrong. Well, this time a tide of magic is coming that will boost everyone's powers. She has to retrieve a set of stolen maps that was stolen from the Pack. Well...nothing can be simple or easy. She has to deal with a lot in this one.


    I'm actually liking Kate. I wasn't a huge fan in the last one, but we get to understand her more. Personally and her powers. We got to see more of the world and it connected a lot of dots for me. I'm slowly liking Curran...a bit. He's still an asshat, but I understand him more now.


    This was SO much better than the first one. I could hardly step away and turn off the audiobook. I had to listen to more. I was hooked from the first page. The narrator was really, really good so I think this helped me like the story and characters more. The writing and the narration were amazing.


    I do want to see what happens next, but I was content on how they ended this book. No cliffies. Just some promise and a question. I am curious, but I don't feel forced...which is a huge plus and the way to end a book in a series.


    So yessssss, if you did not like book 1, do not stop. Read or listen to book 2. So good. I'll stamp this with 5 stars. I had zero issues.

    "Glad you made it... Sike!" - The Beast Lord

    I like the way the romance in this series is developing. Such a good pace. Not the instant, love at first sight type crazy stuff. Instead, I think we are going to get to see a real journey of two people learning to love each other.

    One thing about Kate Daniel's so far is that she isnt tormented by being a kick-butt chick. So many female characters are weighed down by authors who want a kick-butt character but are too distracted by making her fit into a female heroine box. Girls can be bad. Females can be fierce. Chicks can be cruel. We dont fit into boxes.

    The world building for this begins to make more sense to me in this one. I sorta kinda wasnt sure in the last book, but I get the whike Tech/Magic world now. Not until this book did I fully understand the whole "The People" thing too. The vampire section of the first book just didnt hit the A
    -Ha button for me either. If you are like me and didnt a bit more explanation then you'll get that in Book 2.

    There is something suspicious about Crest wanting to marry such a submissive shapeshifter... if they've been engaged for two months and it's been 4 months since book 1 then they had only known each other 2 months before getting engaged.

    A sad thing about this is that I'm half way through the next book while writing this review. This means I wont have time to review them all. It also means they are so good I cant wait to start the next one.

    These are such great Audible books!

    Action, drama, romance, magic, gratuitous violence, shapeshifters, witches and monsters... What else do you need? Oh there’s heroes and heroines too! This series rocks! Excellent delivery by the narrator.

    horrible narration

    The narrator had a breathy voice for every sentence. Women do not talk like that and if a person talked like that they would have no friends because people would get tired of hearing it. The world building is top-notch, the narration ruins it completely and utterly.

    great listen again and again

    winter of 2020 seemed like a perfect time to step away from this weird world and back into KD world. At least there, I know the good guys will eventually win. Great story performed very well. All the snark and humor is perfectly done.

    Great Series, Great Performance.

    I've read the entire Kate Daniels series and have enjoyed them immensely. The writing is wonderful, the stories layered and complex. Renee Raudman is a wonderful performer. She adds a new dimension to an amazing series.

    Awesome story. Great character development!

    I love this series! This story was entertaining the whole time! I re-listen to this series at least once a year and it never gets old.

    This narrator is perfect and really makes the story come to life! This book explores more about Kate and her past and we get to meet some fun new characters. Still some aggravation and flirting going between Kate and Curran. can't wait to see what happens next!

    I highly recommend this series!

    Another prefect addition

    Ilona Andrews never disappoints!!! This is a must read!!!! Kate Daniel’s is captivating with a well thought plot. It’s one of the few series that never gets repetitive!

    Kinda hard to follow

    Renee Raudman does an excellent job reading this book, however I found it a little hard to follow like "who is this person again" and "what did I miss, why has this action suddenly started"?
    The story shifts very quickly and I often felt a bit confused,as if I did miss out a scene? I have listened to lots of stories of the same genre and don't usually have that issue.

    It's a very action loaded story and Kate is an interesting character, not quite your usual "I am an innocent girl who needs to discover her magic" story but a "I'm a broke loner with a big heart and lots of oompf" which is nice for a change 👍🏼

    One-trick pony speaker. And it's not a good trick

    I like the books, but could hardly stand to listen to the speaker. She is okay for low-key scenes, but every time the book describes anything remotely action-like, she sounds as if she is about to either vomit or climax. This goes on in about a third of the recording. Please find more ways to express excitement.
