Story Overview:
In the latest Kate Daniels novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews, magic is coming and going in waves in post-Shift Atlanta—and each crest leaves danger in its wake…

After breaking from life with the Pack, mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate—former Beast Lord Curran Lennart—are adjusting to a very different pace. While they’re thrilled to escape all the infighting, Curran misses the constant challenges of leading the shapeshifters.

So when the Pack offers him its stake in the Mercenary Guild, Curran seizes the opportunity—too bad the Guild wants nothing to do with him and Kate. Luckily, as a veteran merc, Kate can take over any of the Guild’s unfinished jobs in order to bring in money and build their reputation. But what Kate and Curran don’t realize is that the odd jobs they’ve been working are all connected.

An ancient enemy has arisen, and Kate and Curran are the only ones who can stop it—before it takes their city apart piece by piece…

My Review:
Overall: 4.0
Performance: 3.75
Story: 4.25

It's been a while since I visited the Kate Daniels world. I'd forgotten how much I love it. I enjoyed this book, buy you know what? I enjoy them all. There are little hints that the end of the series is coming and while that makes me sad, I love how Curran and Kate have evolved and how their place in post-shift Atlanta has also evolved. 

This book found them battling an ancient, powerful djinn...some interesting interactions with Kate's father...and some epically hair-raising injuries for Kate. I'd planned to listen to the audiobook slowly, but then got caught up in the story and managed to listen to it all in three days rather than the ten I'd planned for. Yeah, it was pretty good. 

This is a series that I recommend you start from the beginning...and I do recommend you do that. It's a GREAT series! Two more books for me to read after this one, since it sounds like #10 is the end.
