Image of Magic Rises (Kate Daniels)

Kate and Curran hit the road for this tumultuous latest installment in the Kate Daniels saga. Part of the reason this incredible series is so beloved is due to the rich array of characters (both major and minor) who populate this exceptional universe. Events are taking an ominous turn, and the danger to characters is all too real. Grab your snacks and tissues; you won’t want to stop until the very last page! Gut-wrenching and glorious!

When Julie’s best friend Maddie falls seriously ill, Kate and Curran are forced to arbitrate a dispute brought by European packs in order to obtain the panacea drug necessary to save her. It’s a trap, but they have no choice, so Kate, Curran, Andrea, Raphael, Derek and others board Saiman’s ship for the Black Sea. Upon arrival, the gang discovers things are worse than they imagined: They are supposed to protect a shifter pregnant with twins whose birth order will settle a land dispute. Kate has barely gotten in the door before she is fighting a killer shifter who defies description, and that doesn’t even touch on the issue of their “host.” (ACE, Aug., 368 pp., $7.99)
