Kate se mi jako hrdinka moc líbí. Život se s ní nejspíš nemazlil. Čtenář postupně sbírá úlomky její minulosti, aby si dokázal vytvořit nějakou představu o tom, co Kate vlastně je. Ale i tak se toho tolik nedozví. Což člověk pěkně navnadí na další díl.

V druhé knize se toho dozvíme víc i o tom, co se vlastně se světem stalo a co se s ním děje teď. Kate nedobrovolně dostane případ, který jí zavede do zajímavých končin. Kromě toho se zase setká i s Curranem, který se díky přílivu magie moc dobře neovládá.

Pokračování se mi moc líbilo. Nebylo to zbytečně překombinované, nebylo to nelogické. Kniha byla akční, vtipná, děj pěkně promyšlený, postavy uvěřitelné. Jsem moc ráda, že se Kate povahově nezměnila a je stále svá. Currana tam klidně mohlo být i víc, ale řekla bych, že romantická struna není hlavním důvodem knihy. Potěšilo mě, že se v knize objevil Derek. Doufám, že ho potkám i v dalších dílech, protože je mi hodně sympatický. Objevují se i nové postavy, které nejspíš ještě zamíchají dějem i v pokračování.

Šlo o velmi dobré pokračování, kterému nedávám plný počet jenom proto, že to jiskření mezi Kate a Curranem je nekonečné a já už chci, aby se něco stalo! :D

Quotes Petra Liked

Ilona Andrews
“Not only will you sleep with me, but you will say 'please.'"
I stared at him, shocked.
The smile widened. "You will say 'please' before and 'thank you' after."
Nervous laughter bubbled up. "You've gone insane. All that peroxide in your hair finally did your brain in, Goldilocks.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

Ilona Andrews

Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

Ilona Andrews
“How much are you lifting?"
"Seven hundred."
Alrighty then. I will just stand over here, out of your way, and hope you don't remember to kick my ass.
He grinned. "Wanna spot me?"
"No thanks. How about I just scream verbal encouragements at you?" I took a deep breath and barked, "No pain, no gain! That pain is just weakness leaving your body! Come on! Push! Push! Make that weight your bitch!”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

Ilona Andrews
“Yes. What is it, guilt, revenge, love, what?”
I swallowed. “I live alone.”
"And your point is?”
"You have the Pack. You’re surrounded by people who would fall over themselves for the pleasure of your company. I have no one. My parents are dead, my entire family is gone. I have no friends. Except Jim, and that’s more of a working relationship than anything else. I have no lover. I can’t even have a pet, because I’m not at the house often enough to keep it from starving. When I come crawling home, bleeding and filthy and exhausted, the house is dark and empty. Nobody keeps the porch light on for me. Nobody hugs me and says, ‘Hey, I’m glad you made it. I’m glad you’re okay. I was worried.’ Nobody cares if I live or die. Nobody makes me coffee, nobody holds me before I go to bed, nobody fixes my medicine when I’m sick. I’m by myself.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

Ilona Andrews
“You're an interesting woman."
"Your interest has been duly noted.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

Ilona Andrews
“He put the book down. “As you wish.” He rose and walked past me. I lowered my sword, expecting him to pass, but suddenly he stepped in dangerously close. “Welcome home. I’m glad you made it. There is coffee in the kitchen for you.”
My mouth gaped open.
He inhaled my scent, bent close, about to kiss me…
I just stood there like an idiot.
Curran smirked and whispered in my ear instead. “Psych.”
And just like that, he was out the door and gone.
Oh boy.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

“I'm secure enough in myself to wear panties with bows on them. Besides, they are comfy and soft."
"I bet." He almost purred.
I gulped.”

Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

Ilona Andrews
“Need some help, Ass Kicker?”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

“No, you’re not going with him.”
I crossed my arms. “Who decided that?”
He put on his “I’m alpha and I’m putting my foot down” expression. “I decided.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

Ilona Andrews
“Two years? That's entirely too long. If you want, we can take care of that. After two years it's pure therapy.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

“First rule of bodyguard detail: know where your 'body' is at all times.”

“Secret to what?"
"Secret to shutting you up," he said. "I just have to beat you till you're half-dead, then give you chicken soup and"--he raised his hands--"blessed silence.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

Ilona Andrews
“You were joking about the whole please and thank you thing, right?"
"Meant every word." A little light danced in his eyes and he very deliberately said, "Baby."
No.
He laughed. "You should see your face right now."
"Don't call me that."
"Would you prefer 'darling'? Or maybe 'cupcake'?" He winked.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns
