Not the people, but the world building is very similar. Thankfully no revenants in .
Its amazing that Gordon & Ilona can write a short story and its totally engrossing. You want more, there is never enough. They are so talented!!...more
I love this writing team so when I re-read Burn for Me I may increase my rating from 4 to 5 stars.

So here we are with a whole new series based in Houston this time instead of Atlanta. Magic is still the currency but with all new rules and ideas.
Nevada Baylor, 25, secret Truthsayer, is the primary private investigator in the family business of Baylor Investigations. She is good at it but due to a family crisis she had to mortgage the business to the Montgomery House, MII. That means they can force her to take a case that could end with her death or bankruptcy and destitution for her family. As she has several siblings, cousins, mother & grandmother on the payroll, that is a very big deal.
Montgomery make her an offer she can't refuse and she is forced to agree to bring in Adam Pierce, a Prime fire mage. Needless, he doesn't want to be brought in.
Connor "Mad" Rogan, a Prime telekinetic, probably the most badass Prime around is also interested in Adam, cause he's got his young cousin Gavin stashed somewhere.
Not saying anything else cause it would only be spoilers, but I'm really, really hanging out for the next in the series. ...more

Dina, is feeling a bit lonely and sorry for herself, with Sean having gone off world to find himself, though they've only shared 1 kiss.
The Gertrude Hunt Inn alerts her to an incoming visitor, and who should it be but George, from the Edge books, who is now an Arbiter (think Mediator). He proposes to hire the Inn for a Peace Summit, between the Holy Anocracy of Vampires, House Krahr & House Vorga, the Merchants of Clan Nuan and the Hope Crushing Horde (the Otrokars). The vampires & the horde are mortal enemies, with the merchants caught in the middle.
Dina, is desperate for guests who sustain the Inn's magic as well as the very generous funds that George is offering. After weighing her options she agrees, and runs around getting supplies and hiring an off world chef, Orro, who looks like a 7 foot hedgehog. So by the time they arrive she is exhausted.
Of course political shenanigans almost bring everything to a halt right at the beginning when Vampire Marshall Robart ignores the coordinates that Marshall Arland has given him. And they land on the front lawn in full view of Police Officer Marais.
Each of the parties to the Summit, including the Arbiters, cause problems and offense to Dina. So in the end she has had enough, and takes matters into her own hands.
This is actually a much darker read than Kate Daniels, and a great reason to avoid war if at all possible. ...more

They are adjusting to living in a semi-rural subdivision and hoping for some peace and quiet.
The first hint of trouble is when Ghastek calls to warn Kate that a horde of Ghouls is about to descend on the city. When they get there, they are shocked to find 30 ghouls, as a horde would be around 5. Lots of gore later they know that something bad is happening in Atlanta.
George can't find Eduardo, her boyfriend, and Kate takes up the mission to find him. Mahon is refusing to let Clan Heavy or Jim, the new Beast Lord look for him as he doesn't want George marrying a werebuffalo. Kate & Curran go to the Guild as that is the last place Eduardo was seen. They are shocked to find it a shambles, and as Curran is bored he is interested in getting it up and running again, just like the keep but without all the Clan politics.
Then the real fun begins when they find out that it is a djinn who is the latest villain.
Glad to see Kate & Curran back to normal, and all our favourite characters getting a run as well....more
