Review: Clay’s Instinct [Wolf Call #2] 2/5 (1)
All , Erotica , Paranormal , Short Stories / March 19, 2019

Review: It turns out this week would be romance/erotica week so here we go with Clay’s Instinct, the second story of the series ‘Wolf Call’ by Abbey Polidori.

Instead of the story picking up from where Logan and Sarah left us it switches to Clay, a local sheriff in a small city called Faith. He is also persecuted by a secret organization bent on catching and experimenting on superhuman creatures like werewolves and vampires (so far those are the only two types we have heard of but only have seen werewolves). The story itself expands and now instead of purely romantic/erotic storyline we have a bit of conflict. It’s still very much on the background since this story is more or less about yet another couple mating – Clay and the reporter Lucinda.

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: 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: Magic Rises [Kate Daniels #6] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / May 11, 2018

Review: I am not sure why it took me this long to write this review. I devoured the first six books like Winnie The Pooh a pot with honey but then I hit a ditch. Now finally, I crawled out of the ditch 😀 So let’s focus on the beautiful 6th book of the Kate Daniels series, Magic Rises, by Ilona Andrews.

The story this time moves to a new location, Georgia, Europe, where Kate and Curran are invited to settle a dispute for a pregnant lady and three rivaling packs. The author’s humor shows in everything she does – the pregnant shifter is expecting twins and each of them is from a different man part of the two of the rivaling packs.

Review: Taming the Alpha [Wild Obsession #1] 3/5 (1)
All , Erotica , Romance / April 11, 2018

Review: For those who know me you know I am not a big fan of straight up romances or sappy love stories. Don’t get me wrong, I think the romantic angle is essential to almost any story and some erotic scenes are pleasure to read (pun intended 😀 ) but I will never intentionally go for a story that has only that and nothing else.

In one of my blog posts I mentioned that the best way to learn what works for you, how to write something that is not your strength or simply to figure out what you want to write, is to read everything. Good, bad, favorite genres, genres you don’t like – everything. I am sticking to that notion and I carefully sliding into an uncharted territory – romance/erotica novels.

Review: Magic Bleeds [Kate Daniels #4] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / April 1, 2018

Review: Magic Bleeds, the fourth book of the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews, is pretty much as close as you can get to pure joy 😀 I gave it a few days before I started this review because I wanted to sound a bit more impartial but then I thought “Wait a minute, if anybody is reading this they want to know MY opinion not to read facts and summaries.” So here it is: This. Book. Is. Awesome! Deal with it!

The story starts with Kate who, as you remember, owes Curran a naked, home-cooked dinner. I know you all waited for that moment with your heart beating fast, wondering if Ilona Andrews we’ll decide to make it comical scene or a sexy one.

Review: Magic Strikes [Kate Daniels #3] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / March 29, 2018

Review: If I put as much passion into work as I put into reading… well, I might start going places 😀 I need to find a job reading books and getting paid for it…

Anyway, I finished with Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews, third book of the series about Kate Daniels, about 8 am this morning. Yes, I did read all night. Sue me. Now I’m so hooked that I may do something stupid like stay up all night before a work day. I haven’t felt so pumped up since the last Skulduggery Pleasant book but the latter lacked something Kate Daniels’ books are full of – romance, sexual tension and heavy dose of heavy language. Everything else is there – the humor, the fighting, the mystery, the monsters and of course the bad-ass characters.

Review: Magic Burns [Kate Daniels #2] 4/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / March 27, 2018

Review: I can’t say I am surprised that I finished the second book about Kate Daniels in a single week. Ilona Andrew‘s series is one heck of a page-turner and it simply doesn’t let you sit around, ignoring it. Magic Burns is the second book and what any one of you would need to get hooked up on the series (if the first book didn’t seal the deal already).

In the center of the story is our beloved, foul-mouthed, quick-thinking Kate Daniels, a merc with a dark secret and soft spots for orphans. In this installment Kate has her hands full – she is hired by the Pack to retrieve stolen maps (three times!), Red (a street kid who helped her with Derek in the previous book) decides to collect on the favor she owes him and asks her to look after Julie (his thirteen-year-old girlfriend); on top of all the world is about to experience a flare – an occurrence that happens every sever years where the magic energy grows exponentially and becomes highly unstable – causing unexpected problems all around.
