On The Edge — Ilona Andrews

Okay, by now you all know the drill. Another Ilona Andrews book is due to hit the stands and I’m going to make certain you know it!

This time around, Ilona & Gordon Andrews have created a fresh new magical world.  It exists parallel to our own.  Very few people from either dimension know the other world exists, although there are a special few able to cross the boundaries and inhabit either.  There are also some people, like Rose and her family, who live between the two boundaries and have to find a way to survive despite being outcasts in both.  This is a story about life lived on the edge.

Rose, has two little brothers to care for, an eccentric grandmother and a zombie grandfather.  Her truck is falling apart, her job barely pays enough to make ends meet, and she hasn’t been out on a date in ages.  If that isn’t enough stress for a young woman barely out of her teens, something incredibly evil has taken up residence in the woods and the neighbors are expecting Rose to get rid of it.  Add to that two handsome men with marriage on their minds, and Rose with good reason to fear that at least one of them is aligned with the evil.

This book fairly sizzles with tension.  Just when you think you’re going to explode from the stress, Ilona slips in a bit of humor and eases the strain — only to immediately start ratcheting the screws again.

Magic Strikes


Romantic Times Review Choice Award

Today is a Magical day! Today is the day, Magic Strikes, comes out in the books stores. Run to your favorite book store now and pick up a copy. It will not be there later then you’ll have to stand around waiting for the reorder while everyone else is reading and talking about the book. You know what that’s like and don’t really want it to happen to you!

Magic Strikes is written by Ilona and Gordon Andrews, a husband and wife team.  Their stories are can’t-put’em-down, nail-biters full of unexpected laughter, edge-of-your-seat suspense, and enough sexual tension to burn down Atlanta.

Magic Strikes is an urban fantasy that takes place in a modern day Atlanta that you have never seen.  It is populated with banshees, werebeasts, shape-shifters, vampires, necromancers and other creepies that crawl the night.  Kate Daniels walks through this world with a mission — to kill the man who killed her mother — her path to vengeance isn’t smooth and along the way she makes allies and foes of some very powerful people; many who, if they knew Kate’s birthright, wouldn’t hesitate to join the other side.

Magic Strikes is book 3 in the Kate Daniels series.  If you haven’t already read them, you’ll want to pick up Magic Bites and Magic Burns as well.   Click on the links for my reviews.
