The enormously riveting world of Kate Daniels expands to include a book featuring Kate’s BFF Andrea Nash. Mostly level-headed Andrea has seen her world implode after losing her position as a Knight of the Order — but that fallout makes for fabulous reading. The gang’s all here, but the shift in viewpoint brings additional depth to the world. A special book bonus for fans is the inclusion of the Kate-centric short story “Magic Gifts.” For Andrews’ legion of fans, this one hits the sweet spot of character development, relationship building and kick-ass thrills!

For much of her life, beastkin Andrea Nash has hidden her shapeshifter side and pretended to be fully human. It was a necessity to maintain her career as a Knight of the Order. In the aftermath of Erra’s rampage in Atlanta, Andrea not only lost her career, she also lost her relationship with Raphael Medrano, the alpha male of the Bouda clan. Rebuilding her life starts with Andrea joining her BFF Kate at Cutting Edge Investigations. Now Andrea has a case involving murdered shifters at a dig site that belongs to Raphael. A secret vault, venomous snakes and Raphael’s new bimbo ensure Andrea’s life is about to get very complicated. (ACE, Aug., 436 pp., $7.99)

LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of GunMetal Magic

Submitted by MichelleLOlson on October 5, 2012 - 12:02pm.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Associate Reviewer - Mich M:

When we first met Andrea in the Kate Daniels books I found it really hard to form an opinion of her, I liked her to an extent but I wasn't really attached to her, now after getting to know her better and spending time with her as the main focus I really like her!

I feel like Andrea grew up a little through this journey and it was something she had to do if she wanted a life with Raphael. Which brings me to Raphael... Where oh where do you start with him? He has p*ssed me off through the series and that continued into the beginning of this book, especially their first meeting. If ever I wanted to slap someone silly, that would do it!

The little teasers with Kate & Curran made me hungry for their next book. I love Curran, he dominates the page whenever he is around even just for a sentence or two. I miss him.

I loved the interactions with Kate & Andrea and I liked Aunt B in this one.
