One of the best Urban Fantasy Series
This is an action packed urban fantasy with superb writing, great character development in a fantastically gritty, wonderfully detailed post-apocalyptic urban setting. The plot moves along at a great pace, with plenty of twists, and the characters get richer as the story unfolds. The world creation is top rate, and the rules of magic are consistent and clever. For me, the best part of this book and the series as a whole are the richly developed characters. There is a small romantic element to this book that builds slowly and satisfyingly throughout the series. Definitely one of my top two favorite authors in this genre (the other being Patricia Briggs).
This first book of the Kate Daniels series was a great Adventure and a terrific cast of characters. There was a lot of world set up in the first book but it was needed to develop all that is going on and will be going on in the books to follow! Love the book! Love the series....each book gets better and better!!
I read this a long time ago when I discovered the series. At the time I did not do reviews. Now I love doing them. I reread this book to remind myself how Kate met Curran. In this case it is an excellent story of the first time they worked together! Derek is an added bonus which will show up late in other books but he is such an interesting sidekick for Kate. Lots of action/mystery but definitely interesting humor! Romance hmm but lots of interesting exchanges between the two. Read this very interesting book as I give it 10 stars!
