Review: Magic Triumphs [Kate Daniels #10] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / February 23, 2019

Review: Every good things must come to and end, or so people keep saying. Magic Triumphs is that end for the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. I’m devastated. Not because it was bad but because it is the end, no more books about Kate ;( I’ll have to console myself with the Iron Covenant but it is not the same… )

I started reading the series last year after a friend recommended it. I ate up the first six books like my life depended on it. The story, the main characters, the love drama, the action – it all just clicked in place for me. Until these series I have always hesitated when asked ‘What is your favorite book or series?’ because there are so many I like. But now I know I won’t hesitate (too bad the whole series doesn’t have a name )

Review: Iron and Magic [Iron Covenant #1] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / February 20, 2019

Review: Iron and Magic, a spin-off series by Ilona Andrews from the world of Kate Daniels, was a major surprise for me. The first book of a trilogy with just as much magic, mythical creatures and interesting characters – and yet I almost decided not to read it. What is the reason? High D’ambray.

I know many girls go head over heels for bad boys, I have fallen pray to this too, but me and Hugh – we just didn’t click in any of the books from the Kate Daniels series. He was hot, strong and sarcastic which are my three favorite things about male characters. Yet, he felt short, probably because I was comparing him to Curran all the time and because he failed in everything he tried.

Review: Magic Binds [Kate Daniels #9] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / February 19, 2019

Review: Magic Binds is the 9th book of the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews and by now I am really out of nice things to say. Looking back I realize with awe how much more complicated and serious the story became without loosing its specific humor and passion. Most series fall prey to this but not this series – and thank god for that!

Kate has claimed Atlanta and she is trying her best to protect it from her father and every creature with ill intentions that crosses its borders. But her father is playing coy, building a castle just outside the limits, baiting her by entering her territory, sending spies and whatnot. But they both know that this game of cat and mouse can’t last forever.

Review: Magic Shifts [Kate Daniels #8] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / February 18, 2019

Review: I’m done with book eight of the series and by now I love the series to death. Literally. It has been a long, long time since I loved books series with such passion and I missed it. And it is not just that I am so familiar and attached to the characters that I want to know what happens – each and every book is somehow different, it uncovers a new mystery and introduces two more. <3 In Magic Shifts we follow Kate around as she, Curran and Julie try to acclimate to their new life outside of the Pack and the Keep.

Review: Magic Extras [Kate Daniels Extras] 4/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / February 14, 2019

Review: Magic Graves(0.5) or also as we know it A Questionable Client was one of my favorite short stories of the series. I like Saiman, well, sometimes, and I find him fascinating. And I always wondered what the story was behind the ‘friendship’ or whatever it is between him and Kate. I somehow imagined it to start just like this and I had a good laugh as I read.

The story follows Kate on a job as a bodyguard detail – her least favorite type of job. But beggars can’t be choosers so she drags her butt to the only standing tall building in a shitty neighborhood with no idea who she will be guarding and from what. All she knows is that the money are good.

Review: Magic Breaks [Kate Daniels #7] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / February 14, 2019

Review: Oh, how I missed Kate. Why did you stop reading it if you missed her so much, you’d ask? That’s a good question to which I have no answer. But I am so happy I found the time to get back into the world of Ilona Andrews that I am having hard time writing this review.

Magic Breaks is what you’d expect (in a good way) – Kate being badass smart-pants, risking her life and making impossible choices; Curran being sexy and protective and very scary when he roars; the Pack being well, dicks for the most of the time (

Review: Infernal Devices [The Hungry City Chronicles, #3] 4/5 (1)
All , Dystopian fiction , Fantasy / December 25, 2018

Review: Infernal Devices by Philip Reeve is the third book of the series and my favorite so far. Maybe it is because it takes place sixteen years later and we have a new cast of characters (more or less) or maybe because I grew to love this world and Philip Reeve just keeps expanding it and making it even more exciting. Either way, I am glad to have started the series and the fact that I read three books in less than a week is a testament to my love (and sheer craziness).

Review: Predator’s Gold [The Hungry City Chronicles, #2] 4/5 (1)
All , Dystopian fiction , Fantasy / December 24, 2018

Review: Predator’s Gold is the second book of The Mortal Engines series by Philip Reeve and I have to admit, the story is growing on me. I am still blown by Reeve‘s imagination but contrary to what I expected, he raised the bar even higher with this book.

The story follows Hester and Tom two years after the destruction of London as they make their living on board Henny Hanniver, the aircraft that previously belonged to Anna Fang. Trying to stay clear from the other cities and the Anti-Traction league they find themselves chased by a extremist group that is part of the Anti-Traction league only to be saved in the last possible moment by the famous Anchorage city which turns out to be just a shadow of its previous glory.

Review: Mortal Engines [The Hungry City Chronicles, #1] 3/5 (1)
All , Dystopian fiction , Fantasy / December 23, 2018

Review: Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve was something unexpected. I have to admit that I didn’t hear about it until I saw the movie. Most of you would say, and I would agree with you usually, that the book is always better than the movie. Well, in this case I am not entirely sure.

Now that I finished the book I realize that the movie was waaaay off the book plot and half of the things in it never happened in the book but it was thrilling, interesting and I think the choices in the movie script were super cool.

Review: A Discovery of Witches [All Souls #1] 3/5 (1)
All , Fantasy , Romance / November 14, 2018

Review: A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness was a bag of corn and green peas for me. You know what I mean. You don’t? Well, it means that it has a lot of things I liked (like corn) and a lot of things that made me ugh (like the peas). But the fact that I stayed until 9 a.m. to finish it suggest that maaaybe there was more corn in the bag than damn green peas.

I learnt about the book from the TV show with the same name. Now that I’ve read the book I’m astounded at how closely the TV Show is following the book plot – more than any other book screening I’ve ever seen. I really liked the show – well, most of it – so I decided to check out the book since we all know books are always better. And that’s where the bag of peas and corn appeared.
