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

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
Andrea Nash, beastkin/bouda mix, best friend of Kate Daniels, Consort of the Beastmaster, is having a bad day, week, month. She's been thrown out of tAndrea Nash, beastkin/bouda mix, best friend of Kate Daniels, Consort of the Beastmaster, is having a bad day, week, month. She's been thrown out of the Order because she isn't human, Cutting Edge isn't making any money, she doesn't want to join the Pack, and she and Raphael had a big fight and aren't talking to each other.
Jim, the Pack's Security Chief assigns Andrea a murder case which involves Raphael's company, and they are finally thrown together. Ascanio, the Bouda intern was a sweetheart, and even Roman the Volhv was both helpful and hot.
The Mating Frenzy was a riot (view spoiler)[Raphael moves into Andrea's apartment and in turn Andrea, with Kate's help puts neon purple carpet on every surface, including ceilings, walls, plates, swords on the wall, etc etc, of Raphael's home (hide spoiler)] and the little snippets of Kate & Curran were great.
This story overlaps some of Magic Slays and it would be helpful to have read that one first, but if you know the Kate Daniels world, then it isn't strictly necessary.
Just love these stories, and can't wait for the next one. ["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more
