Atlanta is a city plagued by magical problems. Kate Daniels will fight to solve them—no matter the cost.
Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack’s shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and there’s little available in Atlanta.
Kate can’t bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shapeshifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute—and they’ll pay him in medicine. With the young people’s survival and the Pack’s future at stake, Kate and Curran know they must accept the offer—but they have little doubt that they’re heading straight into a trap…

Micky’s 5 star review
After a month’s necessary break from Kate Daniels (unwilling but life demanded), MAGIC RISES was the perfect return to this world. This book felt different because it was different. This book was dramatic in storyline (my favourite so far) and in the established and new relationships. It was also twisty, the kind of twisty that pulled the rug from under your feet and plonked you dazed on the ground.
The story started with loupism, and found the gang traveling on a ship, across magic oceans to the Black Sea area. What they met there and who they met there was simply mind blowing and nothing was predictable from there on in. This book had my heart in my mouth and I felt so much.
MAGIC RISES brought an impasse in Kate and Curran’s relationship and I was not prepared at all for this storyline. It was funny and then it hurt. These two kill me, again and again.
Kate snark never gets old and the reason I’ll be here for her forever is her inner monologue and quick quips.
“And here we go, straight into the lake of drama without taking our clothes off first.”
Sign me up for a life of reading then rereading this series. Continues to nod at buddy for getting me into this in the first place.
