A New Kate Daniels World Book

Tuesday, 26 January 2021

If you haven't read any of the Kate Daniels' World books before then you are really missing out.  Even if urban fantasy, paranormal, vampire, shifter, magic romance books aren't your thing, this series has so much more to offer readers. 


It's unusual for a series to go from strength to strength but the Kate Daniels' series is the exception to the rule. The books are a perfect blend of old character favourites and new and wonderful creatures in an ongoing storyline.  Kate Daniels is the best heroine you'll ever read about!  The writing is wonderfully accurate and passionately portrays the story without any deviation from the first instalment and remains true to itself despite so many books having been written.

I want this series to continue for forever but I also want it to spin off in so many directions. I have been crying out for more about Julie and low and behold, the authors have answered my prayers and have written Blood Heir, Julie's story.  

These books demonstrate creativity to the extreme, a sick sense of humour and a wickedly captivating storyline.  Be warned though, they are seriously addictive!



From Ilona Andrews, an all-new novel set in the Kate Daniels World and featuring Julie Lennart-Olsen, Kate and Curran's ward.


Atlanta was always a dangerous city. Now, as waves of magic and technology compete for supremacy, it’s a place caught in a slow apocalypse, where monsters spawn among the crumbling skyscrapers and supernatural factions struggle for power and survival.

Eight years ago, Julie Lennart left Atlanta to find out who she was. Now she’s back with a new face, a new magic, and a new name—Aurelia Ryder—drawn by the urgent need to protect the family she left behind. An ancient power is stalking her adopted mother, Kate Daniels, an enemy unlike any other, and a string of horrifying murders is its opening gambit.

If Aurelia’s true identity is discovered, those closest to her will die. So her plan is simple: get in, solve the murders, prevent the prophecy from being fulfilled, and get out without being recognized. She expected danger, but she never anticipated that the only man she'd ever loved could threaten everything.

One small misstep could lead to disaster. But for Aurelia, facing disaster is easy; it’s relationships that are hard.

Excerpt

Chapter 1

The moon was full and silver.  It peeked at me through tattered clouds as I rode my horse down the old I-20, staying in the center of the highway.  Magic had been chewing on the edges of paved roads for decades, and the asphalt near the shoulder often crumbled under the weight of a horse.

Nothing to see here, moon.  Just a lone woman in a tattered cloak riding her horse into her home city after being gone for far too long.

Around me dense pines towered on both sides of the once busy highway.  Glowing eyes watched Tulip and me from the darkness between the roots and branches, yellow for racoon, white for deer, green for foxes, electric red arranged into a triangle for hell alone knew what. The forest critters gave me the stink eye but kept to themselves. 

The trees stopped abruptly, replaced by fields wrapped in razor wire. A sign loomed ahead.

WELCOME TO ATLANTA

We’re Glad Georgia Is on Your Mind

A bit optimistic of them.

Below someone had scribbled in white ink.

“Praise the Lord and get the fireballs ready.”

That was more like it.

A dark shape swooped above my head.  The moonlight slipped over it, dancing on its feathers, and then it soared into the endless indigo of the sky.  Like most eagles, Turkan didn’t like to fly at night, but something must’ve unsettled my raptor.  He’d taken off the moment we left the leyline and refused to land on his perch on my shoulder.

Another sign jutted into the night.

ALL VISITING SHAPESHIFTERS

Present to the Pack in 24 hours

Take I-85, head northwest, follow your nose.

Twenty-four hours?  When I left eight years ago, foreign shapeshifters had three days to introduce themselves to the Pack. Times had changed.
