Urban Fantasy Early Review: Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews

Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews (Kate Daniels #9)


Egalley courtesy of Ace

Synopsis from Goodreads
Mercenary Kate Daniels knows all too well that magic in post-Shift Atlanta is a dangerous business. But nothing she’s faced could have prepared her for this…

Kate and the former Beast Lord Curran Lennart are finally making their relationship official. But there are some steep obstacles standing in the way of their walk to the altar…

Kate’s father, Roland, has kidnapped the demigod Saiman and is slowly bleeding him dry in his never-ending bid for power. A Witch Oracle has predicted that if Kate marries the man she loves, Atlanta will burn and she will lose him forever. And the only person Kate can ask for help is long dead.

The odds are impossible. The future is grim. But Kate Daniels has never been one to play by the rules…


Release date: Sept 20th, 2016.

 "You're like a crazy cat lady, but you collect killers instead of fluffy cats."
"I don't collect killers."
"Yes, you do, and those who aren't killers turn into killers by the time you're done. You made Julie into a maniac. That child has more knives on her than a squad of the PAD. "
Aah, I missed old Kate and Curran's banter. I am happy to say that she is back to her usual badassery after a weaker previous book in this series, and oh boy, does this book rock!



There was just so much deliciousness here it was a non-stop fest for the fans. Curran and Kate's type of humor, interactions with Roland, Roman with his amazing sense of humor, The Pack and The Guild, and of course preparations for the wedding in the middle of another apocalypse.

I loved that Kate finally starts learning about the origins of her power and how to work it. She goes through a painful self-realization that if unchecked she will turn into her father, and fights with all her strength to turn the tide.

As usual, there is much hilarity, there are painful losses and there are spectacular fights. I was so juiced by the end of the book I wanted to run around and squee. I might still do it on re-read. All in all, if you want epic badassery, grab this on the 20th of September!

P.S. I am intentionally biting my tongue because anything else will be a major spoiler. Read it yourselves and come back to gush.

Ах, как же я скучала по шуточкам Кейт и Куррана друг над другом! Я рада сказать, что после слабенькой предыдущей книги серии Кейт со своей командой вернулась с удвоенной силой и меня просто потрясла!

Здесь было так много вкуснятины для поклонников серии, что я даже не знаю с чего начать. Характерное для Куррана и Кейт чувство юмора, отношения с Роландом, тонкий сарказм Романа, Гильдия и Cвора, и конечно же подготовка к свадьбе посреди апокалипсиса.

Мне очень понравилось, что Кейт наконец-то начинает учиться основам своей магии и как ей противостоять. Она переживает огромный кризис жанра так как понимает, что если будет неосторожна, то легко сможет превратиться а такого же монстра, что и её отец.

Как обычно, в книге много смеха, потерь и боли, великолепных боёв и лиричных моментов. Я была в дичайшем восторге под конец, и очень хотела побегать и повизжать, однако скорее всего сделаю это при перечитке. *смеясь* Специально не говорю ни о чём конкретном, чтоб не проспойлерить, однако если вы хотите экшна эпичных масштабов, смело покупайте эту книгу 20-го сентября, а после прочтения заходите сюда, и мы вместе повизжим в комментариях.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
