The fourth Kate Daniels novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author who “defines urban fantasy” (Fresh Fiction).
Kate Daniels works for the Order of the Knights of Merciful Aid, officially as a liaison with the mercenary guild. Unofficially, she cleans up the paranormal problems no one else wants to handle—especially if they involve Atlanta’s shapeshifting community.
When she’s called in to investigate a fight at the Steel Horse, a bar midway between the territories of the shapeshifters and the necromancers, Kate quickly discovers there’s a new player in town. One who’s been around for thousands of years—and rode to war at the side of Kate’s father.
This foe may be too much even for Kate and Curran, the Lord of the Beasts, to handle. Because this time, Kate will be taking on family...

Great series continues to hit its stride
Kate Daniels is an action packed urban fantasy series with superb writing, great character development in a fantastically gritty, wonderfully detailed post-apocalyptic urban setting. This fourth installment for the series incorporates satisfying story lines for the Kate/Curran romance as well as Kate's family and past. The supporting characters continue to hold their own, both in terms of characterization and plot involvement. I love that Ilona Andrews keeps the plots rich and still gives plenty of time to the relationship between Kate and Curran without letting it overwhelm the story.
This is the latest installment of the Kate Daniels series and it's the best one yet. I highly recommend starting with the first book Magic Bites, but it is not absolutely necessary. This is an Urban Fantasy set in a world where magic and technology collide and mercenary Kate Daniels is doing her best to survive. She's facing her biggest enemy yet in this book and she's not holding anything back. Also, she and the Beast Lord, Curran, finally determine where they stand. A must read for fans of the series and an interesting story for the uninitiated.
How do you write an interesting review but not spoil the story? Well, I say this is an excellent book! The action is awesome, the romance bears fruit and the humor had me laughing! His furriness will get some cooperation from Kate but there will still be the usual banter. Love is grand and very strong. Curran will meet part of Kate’s family and lots will come to light. There are plenty of plot twists and sorrow so have the Kleenex handy. I highly recommend this excellent book and series!
