Title: Magic Breaks (Kate Daniels #7)
Author: Ilona Andrews
Publisher: Ace Hardcover
Release Date: July 29, 2014
No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: if there’s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it…
As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers. Since Kate’s connection to Roland has come out into the open, no one is safe—especially those closest to Kate.
As Roland’s long shadow looms ever nearer, Kate is called to attend the Conclave, a gathering of the leaders from the various supernatural factions in Atlanta. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered there, apparently at the hands of a shapeshifter, Kate is given only twenty-four hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she’ll find herself embroiled in a war which could destroy everything she holds dear…
In almost two months, I get to hold this in my hands! Plus this one is going to be in hardcover! (I'm excited but didn't like the almost $20 price tag, which I paid, of course). The Kate Daniels series is my favorite urban fantasy series, and I'm dying to read the next installment. What shenanigans will Kate get up to? How are Andrea and Raphael after book 6? Will we finally get the showdown with Roland? Plus, I want to see more Julie; I liked her solo story in the anthology, An Apple for the Creature.
