It’s all about Kate - a no-nonsense ass-kicking heroine who tries to stay out of trouble but hasn’t so much luck with this. Her big mouth is not only dangerous for her health but also very entertaining and makes her so much more lovable. The shapeshifters and their impressive Beast Lord Curran are fascinating and they put some spice in the whole issue.
I love the way Andrews develops her characters and then let them crush together like Curran and Kate. The story of this book is intoxicating and not only because of the personal factor about revenge for Greg. Ilona takes you slowly into this new world and then shows you how fast everything can change. This book is just great and has the right amount of peas....more

You get to know Julie and connected to her a new site of Kate: the loving mother-or-rather-aunt-side. It makes the story more emotional without taking away the addicting action parts. The relationship between Kate and Curran becomes closer despite their fights about weddings and soup. Although I have to say I hate tortoise. *Ick*...more

In the beginning it reminded me a bit Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire but this resemblance was lost when the tournament started. This book has a great balance between action and story. It’s funny not only because of the conversations between Curran and Kate but also for the increasing appearance of the boudas. All left to say is: “I can’t wait for the dinner.”...more
I have to admit I only read Nalini Singh’s Angel’s Judgment and Ilona Andrews’ Magic Mourns. I loved both stories. Magic Mourns is about Andrea and RaI have to admit I only read Nalini Singh’s Angel’s Judgment and Ilona Andrews’ Magic Mourns. I loved both stories. Magic Mourns is about Andrea and Raphael from her Kate Daniels series and this story is just perfect. I love the boudas and Raphael in particular and really enjoyed a book dedicated to them. Andrea’s character is wonderful realized and I couldn’t stop reading this story.
Angel’s Judgment is about Sara and Deacon and is placed in Nalini’s new Guild Hunter series. I love Nalini’s style of writing cuz it always grips me from the first sentence and doesn’t let me go till I read the last word. I really like this new world she created and it’s getting a great competition in my heart for the best Nalini Singh series. I plan to read Meljean Brook’s other books in her series before reading this one. And I’m not sure if I want to read Charlaine Harris story cuz I don’t care about her Sookie Stackhouse series at all. ...more

This is the Story about Daniela(lovely name, made me think of my sister the whole time *grins*) half ice-maiden, half Valkyrie and Murdoch one of the famous Wroth brothers known for being vampires. Danii had a really long(2000+ years) and very lonely life so far. She's an ice-maiden which means she will get burns when a normal person touches her. She can only be touched by her own people but these don't really like her and try to kill her every chance they get. Yep, that sounds like a real frustrating life. Murdoch doesn't mind not being blooded cuz having a woman always is trouble in his opinion! When exactly that happens with Danii he think that is his punishment for being a lady-killer in his human days. Not being able to be with a woman for so long and now the only woman to get him on is the one he can't touch! Life can be really cruel! These two have seriously chemistry going on. This book has the most erotic scene without touching. Really blew me away.
The side characters are hilarious as ever. I so love these Valkyrie and I have such a soft spot for the Wroth brothers. The plot was good. I wanted to know how this whole mess would work out in the end and why she got bowling shoes from the goddess of impossibility. But the end was not what I expected and didn't really cure my curiosity. It was one of these too easy solutions and left me a bit unsatisfied.
Tempt Me Eternally by Gena Showalter
This is the story of Breean and Aleaha. We already met these two as a couple in Devyn's book. I was so curious about these two since the last installment. Aleaha was a bit different than I expected her to be. All my expectations where formed by the things Bride thought about her and Aleaha is not the small vulnerable girl I pictured.
Same is true for Breean. I expected a more nicer man. Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining at all but he was a bit too animalistic. Not too animalistic for being enjoyable, that he was all right but for being a Rakan.Not sure if you get what I mean. I never thought the Rakan would be that way. I loved to see the relationship between this two build up and loved that they're both stubborn as hell. I have to admit the book was not as hot as Devyn's but she really spoiled us with that one. I thought this resolution of this story was a bit easy too.
Considering everything I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to all fans of both series! ...more
