About this author

Ilona Andrews is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. author2sm“Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.)

Gordon and Ilona currently reside in Oregon with their two children, three dogs and a cat. They have co-authored two series, the bestselling urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and romantic urban fantasy of The Edge.

The next installment is available on the Innkeeper page. Thank you so much for your patience. We’ve had a … clump, I guess, of deadlines. Jim and Dali’s novella was written and turned in. Our editor, Anne Sowards, had this to say about it:

"You tell me." Ha! Walked right into that one, yes, he did.”

“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

“The vampire stared at me, his mouth slack as Ghastek assessed his options. I took a couple of forms from my desk, put them into the vamp's mouth, and pulled them up by their edges.
"What are you doing?" Ghastek asked.
"My hole puncher broke."
"You have no respect for the undead.”

Sara Hemenway Thank you so much for the add! I just finished Magic Rises and now I don't know what to do with myself. I guess it's The Edge series next! Keep up the amazing work! :D

Luys Hi. Thanks for the amazing books, stories and let's not forget about your delightful snippets. They totally made my day on too many days to count :).
I don't wanna sound like a dork but I've been puzzling over Kate's "Are you going to say Psych?" line from Magic Rises since yesterday. I totally remember the scene in Magic Burns where Curran says "Psych" in Kate's apartment and I still don't get it. A push in the right direction, please? A fellow reader mentioned Eddings, but I have no idea who he is hence his connection to the phrase.
Thanks for your awesomeness!

Danielle Hello :)

I just re-read the Kate Daniels series,'s my most favorite series and I thought I'd hop over to tell you how it's so near and dear to my heart, when I saw your post about Gunmetal Magic...I'm totally in for Roman getting his own book. In fact I was wondering when he would. I love Roman, he's a fantastic character. I'm totally in. Let me know if you need me to send you more encouragement :). I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Sophia Hi Ilona and Gordon! Thanks for accepting my friend request. I just recently discovered your Kate Daniels series and love them. Your creative world building and scene descriptions are wonderful.

message 9: by Maya

Maya Love your books so much!! I was just wondering where the research came from on the different pantheons and myths used in the Kate Daniels series. Is there a specific author or book series I should look at? Thanks!!
