Micky’s 4 star review but I declare this series a 5 star series overall!
I could have read this book a month ago but I have been putting off getting to the end. I have loved the whole reading experience of Kate Daniels and her world and I did not want it to end. Now it has ended, it is bittersweet but I am immensely fond of the world and the characters and remain in hatred with the monsters, bugs, creatures and evil things. There might be the odd, mild spoiler but nothing beyond what is revealed in the synopsis
MAGIC TRIUMPHS starts with an addition to the family. It was amazing to me how this weaved into the world and family so naturally. I found this element such fun and somewhat anxiety-provoking. Kate and Curran remained themselves through these changes, until they didn’t.
Roland was a definite menace in this book (like he hasn’t been for many of the books, eye roll) but it seemed to be coming to a head. There was, however a more impending threat and I really enjoyed the story/quest to this book. Apart from the soup, no one can enjoy the soup.
Bringing back characters and tying up storylines was a joy to read. In this book, Hugh finally moved a centimetre or two in my esteem, marginal but it was there. There were some reveals that gave me final understanding moments about characters and others that just made my heart sing. But do not be fooled, there was angst, terror and menace galore as usual.
I have given this read 4 stars because it wrapped up oh so fast. I was at 92% thinking how can this finish in time and there was a lack of detail and depth in that final ending for me. BUT I am satisfied completely in the final feeling of completing the series. This is my favourites series ever for these reasons: longevity, character development and kickass characters. Watch out for my blog feature coming with kudos and homage to all things Kate Daniels. I am determined to pass on the favour and make even more Kate Daniels fans of some bookworms.
