From award-winning author Ilona Andrews comes an all-new novel set in the New York Times number-one best-selling Kate Daniels' world, featuring Julie Lennart-Olsen, Kate and Curran's ward.
Atlanta was always a dangerous city. Now, as waves of magic and technology compete for supremacy, it’s a place caught in a slow apocalypse, where monsters spawn among the crumbling skyscrapers and supernatural factions struggle for power and survival.
Eight years ago, Julie Lennart left Atlanta to find out who she was. Now she’s back with a new face, a new magic, and a new name - Aurelia Ryder - drawn by the urgent need to protect the family she left behind. An ancient power is stalking her adopted mother, Kate Daniels, an enemy unlike any other, and a string of horrifying murders is its opening gambit.
If Aurelia’s true identity is discovered, those closest to her will die. So her plan is simple: Get in, solve the murders, prevent the prophecy from being fulfilled, and get out without being recognized. She expected danger, but she never anticipated that the only man she'd ever loved could threaten everything.
One small misstep could lead to disaster. But for Aurelia, facing disaster is easy. It’s relationships that are hard.
The names are pronounced correctly.
First off, this book is so good that I bought the kindle version AND the audiobook. I’ve always loved Julie, Derek is *chefs kiss*, and nothing about this story was disappointing. If you liked KD even a little, you will love BH.
The print version is amazing, but the audiobook adds so much nuance to the story, it somehow makes whole experience better. I want book 2 so bad I could die.
And for the record, THE NAMES ARE PRONOUNCED CORRECTLY. Look, before you go on a tirade, do your due diligence. The authors’ blog will bring you to a post about the audiobook version, the narrator (who is fabulous), and how the authorlords used this new series as an opportunity to CORRECT words that were mispronounced in the KD series.
But even if you’re used to certain words being pronounced certain ways, this book should still be ✨amazing✨
Incredible new storyline arc!
This book had me glued to it from beginning to end! The twists and turns of the story remind me of why I buy Ilona Andrews novels! If you like Kate Daniels books, you will love this!
Pronounce CHARACTER NAMES CORRECTLY
Loved Storyline, reader ok.But FOR GOD’S SAKE, HAVE THE READER READ MAGIC BREAKS FOR LIST OF CHARACTERS AND NAMES CORRECTLY READ BY RENEE R. YOU NEARLY SCREWED UP THIS AUDIOBOOK AS BADLY AS IRON and MAGIC: IRON COVENANT, BOOK 1.
FORTHE LEGIONS. OF FANS WHO HAVE LOVED AND FOLLOWED AND BOUGHT EBOOKS AND AUDIOBOOKS, YOU ARE FOR WHATEVER ILL~ADVISED REASON. CUTTING OFF YOUR CASH FLOW BY NOT KNOWING THE BACKGROUNDS OF BELOVED CHARACTERS.
ANYBODY CAN READ, IT TAKES A SPECIAL DILIGENT READER TO RESEARCH THE CHARACTERS OF MULTIPLE THOUSANDS OF SOLD BOOKS.
just sayin’ I spend most of my extra money on audiobooks and you guys aren’t earning your money by not doing simple due diligence. Whomever made these editorial changes, NEEDS TO BE FIRED OR REASSIGNED TO PROOFREADING.
