MAGIC RISES, the sixth book in the Kate Daniels series will be hitting on July 30th, here is YOUR chance to win a copy of the first book in the series, MAGIC BITES.

Our review of MAGIC RISES

Daniels series to date with MAGIC RISES. Mercenary, Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran aka the Beast Lord are faced with a crisis that is taking the lives of the Pack's beloved shapeshifting children. Their small bodies are unable to control their beast sides, resulting in tragic deaths. They learn that there is a medicine that can help them. However, it lies heavily guarded in the European packs far away from their home. In a desperate attempt to save their Pack's children, Kate and her crew stride headstrong into danger that will only get more challenging as the days go on.
Politics and the threat of war is a constant throughout the book. Yet Kate and Curran will experience something that will shake the very ground they stand on and test their loyalty to one another. In the most heartbreakingly emotional storyline that Andrews has adapted in the series, MAGIC RISES will have you laughing out loud at some of the antics while also tearing your heart out with its losses.
Kate Daniels has been my top favorite heroine for a long time. However, in this latest installment, we see a much more vulnerable side to her. We see her emotions written plainly across her face. We see the hurt she is trying to hide and we see the depth of her love for Curran. Detailed worldbuilding is often what fans go for when reading an Ilona Andrews book, but after reading this, they will see their talents in creating multidimensional characters as well.
Say goodbye to sleep because you won't feel the need for it when you have this hot little number in your hands. An all- nighter material, MAGIC RISES has blazing hot action, heart- stopping emotion, and quick wit banter all in one delicious package. If there is one author that defines Urban Fantasy, it is Ilona Andrews.

Ilona Andrews is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.)

Gordon and Ilona currently reside in Georgia with their two children and two dogs, one of whom is clearly neurotic and the other who believes herself to be a thirty pound wolf. They are working on Kate Daniels’s next adventure.

Atlanta is a city plagued by magical problems. Kate Daniels will fight to solve them—no matter the cost.

Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack's shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and there's little available in Atlanta.

Kate can't bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shapeshifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute—and they'll pay him in medicine. With the young people's survival and the Pack's future at stake, Kate and Curran know they must accept the offer—but they have little doubt that they're heading straight into a trap...
