Well that was AWESOME! I am surprised how much I loved it. I did hear from quite a few people that the first book is the weakest but I am not sure why. I admit the world building and trying to remember who is what is a bit hard at times but other than that it is fantastic. I am so excited for the next book now.


Twinie, I am sorry I finished it so fast. I just got addicted. Thanks for the read along :)

Quotes Nic Liked

Ilona Andrews
“Here, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty...”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Bites

Ilona Andrews
“What kind of woman greets the Beast Lord with 'here, kitty, kitty'?”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Bites

Ilona Andrews
“The monster licked his lips, long lines of whiskers twitching, and spoke in a deep growl. "Pretty, aren't I?" Curran. In midform. I broke from his gaze. "Adorable.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Bites

Ilona Andrews
“Have you ever met someone and felt… I don't know how to describe it, felt a chance at having something that eluded you? I don't know… Forget I said anything."

I knew what he meant. He was describing that moment when you realize that you are lonely. For a time you can be alone and doing fine and never give a thought to living any other way and then you meet someone and suddenly you become lonely. It stabs at you, almost like a physical pain, and you feel both deprived and angry, deprived because you wish to be with that person and angry, because their absence brings you misery. It's a strange feeling, akin to desperation, a feeling that makes you wait by the phone even though you know that the call is an hour away. I was not going to lose my balance. Not yet.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Bites

Is it at your library Nomes? I think you will like the characters. It does have a similar feel to Darkfever series but more fun.

I am so excited for the rest of the series especially since you say it is even better. I am hoping for more of Curran in the next book :)


♥Rachel♥ He's a little more present in each book. Third book gets interesting. ;)

Wendy Darling I'm not sure why everyone says the first book is the weakest either! I really enjoyed it, I'm so glad you did, too. And I see you've blown through the next couple as well, hee hee.

Nic I am seriously addicted and am desperately waiting for 4 & 5 to arrive in the mail. It has also reminded me how much I love a good adult urban fantasy. Need to read more of them.
