Story Overview:
From award-winning author, Ilona Andrews, an original novella, set in the New York Times #1 bestselling Kate Daniels World and featuring fan-favorites, Derek, and Curran and Kate’s very independent ward, Julie. 

Scarred, solitary Derek Gaunt has separated from his Pack, and is truly a lone wolf. With no family he answers to no one; but is fiercely loyal to a chosen few. So, when several of those close to him are murdered, he’ll stop at nothing to hunt their killer through the magic-drenched streets of Atlanta. 

Never one to be left on the sidelines, equally determined—some might say stubborn—Julie Lennart-Olsen soon joins in his pursuit; and what began as revenge turns into a race to save the city. Their search pits them against powers they never imagined and magic so old, it predates history. It may cost Derek his life, but there are things for which even he would risk everything.

My Review:
Overall: 4.5
Performance: 4.75
Story: 4.25

Ooh, I cannot express just how excited about this novella. It promises good things to come in this world and I like the hints that are here. Derek and Julie....OMG, YES!!

This is a really short novella, but there is so much goodness throughout it. Hints at what might be to come. Derek is 20. Julie is 16. YES, I do like where this is going. If you are a fan of the Kate Daniels world and like me...sad about the upcoming end to that series...then you simply MUST read this one. That way you can be just as excited as me! 

Loved this...and it had an interesting story, too. Like I said...just a lot fit into really very few words. Fantastic!!
