I have my good friend Missie Taylor to thank for getting me absolutely addicted to this series. If I had to describe the plot line in one sentence it would have to be ‘Sin City‘ (the movie) meets any or all of Kim Harrison’s novels.
The only possible down side to the series (depending on the kind of books you like this could be an upside) is the lack of erotic romance. However PG-13 it may be, the sexual tension is so thick you cut it with a knife.
Overall, the series follows Mercenary Kate Daniels as she tries to unwind magical mysteries in a world unlike any I’ve read. Her work leads her from a large pack of Were-animals, led by the very luscious Beast Lord to ‘The People’ (a group of human necromancers who control armies of undead vampires) and retells her history with a group of virtual knights.
The idea puts a fresh spin on the typical vampire genre and adds a very ‘Karen Marie Moning‘esque dark side to her writing without being overly wordy or gory. In short: great action, fab characters, a quick read and a storyline I’m curious to keep up with.
This series has major potential and definitely deserves anyone who likes Sci Fi /Paranormal Fiction to give it a shot. Ilona Andrews is quickly making my favorite authors list!
