Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews

Product Details

The eighth Kate Daniels novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author who “defines urban fantasy” (Fresh Fiction). 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, Kate and Curran know that separating from the Pack completely is a process that will take time.  But when they learn that their friend Eduardo has gone missing, Kate and Curran shift their focus to investigate his disappearance. As they dig further into the merc’s business, they discover that the Mercenary Guild has gone to hell and that Eduardo’s recent assignments are connected in the most sinister way… 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.




This is one huge transitional book. With only the possibility of only two more books in this series, I was really worried how the team was going to start wrapping up this series. I was also worried as to how the Daniel's writing team was going to take Curran out of his position and life and plop him into Kate's and whether or not the transaction was going to be a smooth one -I shouldn't have worried. Even though the story really didn't revolve around 'The Pack', it still involved The Pack. This story involves George (Mahon's daughter) and the Eduardo the werebuffalo who has gone missing. This is not quite the main story line, but close enough since all of the weirdness that follows has to do with him and his father.

Kate is finally maturing and it only took a scary/deadly medical condition for her to take stoke of her life and to love what she sees.

She will interact with her father and it is going to be both fun,and funny and also a bit scary.

Curran is going to get his hearts desire (at least in a work situation) and also get another pack of sorts to head.

What I would love to see is a Curran's POV novella/short story about how he felt while Kate was having her medical issues and afterwards when he wasn't so sure she was going to remember him/what they meant to each other.

I would also love to see a novella about Jim and Dali and how the transition treated them and how they handled it.

I would love to see Kate's conflict with her father handled a lot differently than most fans -I would love to see them become an actual family, to have Roland teach Kate how to take over after he has had enough time on earth...just to teach her and to see his grandchild/children. I would love to see the three of them kick some God or Goddesses butt. *sigh*

I am using my newly gained ESP *chortle* to try to get the Andrews team to write faster AND to make them keep up with this series! 

I am aware that it must get boring for the author to keep on going with a long running series and this is why so many series start failing when the author doesn't know enough to ditch it. I have to respect the Andrew's team to know what they are doing. If I chant this to myself enough times maybe I'll even start believing it!

There is just so much to tie up in such a relatively short amount of time -I am hoping that I heard wrong about only having two more books.
