Kate Daniels is focused on her life as a wife, mother,
and small business owner. Unfortunately, her position as
In-Shinar, the Blood Blade of Atlanta, makes her a target
and now someone is testing her claim over Atlanta. Is her
father, Roland, behind the growing number of horrific and
unusual deaths? Kate and Curran will have to form some
uneasy alliances if they hope to survive what is coming...
MAGIC TRIUMPHS is the tenth and concluding book in the
Daniels series. As we are seeing the
conclusion of several story arcs, I would strongly
suggest reading the Kate
Daniels series in order as each
book builds upon the events of the earlier books. Ilona
Andrews pulls together the various relationships and
shows alliances shifting and reshifting as the balance of
Reading MAGIC TRIUMPHS was a bittersweet experience. The
Daniels series is one of my top favorite
series of all time and honestly I didn't want to see it end.
However, Ilona Andrews doesn't disappoint as MAGIC
TRIUMPHS concludes with exactly the kind of huge bang I
would expect from Kate and Curran. I laughed, I cried,
and I cheered while reading MAGIC TRIUMPHS. I won't lie
though, I've become attached to the characters and some
of the sacrifices were painful, even as I loved the
introduction of Conlan.
And oh... as much as I love Kate and Curran, Conlan Dilmun
Lennart completely stole my heart! His antics, as well as
Kate's reaction to them, are absolutely adorable. I won't
reveal spoilers but some of the scenes involving Conlan
and his parents are nothing short of hysterical! I hope
we see future books featuring him as I can't wait to see
how his powers develop.
MAGIC TRIUMPHS is a phenomenal conclusion to one of the
best urban fantasy series of all time and clearly a must-
read for anyone who is a fan of the genre. I'm thankful
to know we'll still get to visit this stunningly good
world that Ilona Andrews has so carefully crafted over
the years, even if the stories won't focus on Kate and
Curran. If you love urban fantasy, or even like it just a
little, then pick up book one of the Kate
series and settle in for one of the best book journeys
you'll ever take.
Kate has come a long way from her origins as a loner taking
care of paranormal problems in post-Shift Atlanta. She's
made friends and enemies. She's found love and started a
family with Curran Lennart, the former Beast Lord. But her
magic is too strong for the power players of the world to
let her be.
Kate and her father, Roland, currently have an uneasy truce,
but when he starts testing her defenses again, she knows
that sooner or later, a confrontation is inevitable. The
Witch Oracle has begun seeing visions of blood, fire, and
human bones. And when a mysterious box is delivered to
Kate's doorstep, a threat of war from the ancient enemy who
nearly destroyed her family, she knows their time is up.
Kate Daniels sees no other choice but to combine forces with
the unlikeliest of allies. She knows betrayal is inevitable.
She knows she may not survive the coming battle. But she has
For her child.
For the world.
