This is the second book in the Kate Daniels series with Magic Bites being the first. They should be read in order since the books wouldn't make as much sense if you didn't.
Wow! That is the word that comes to mind when I think of this book. The other night, hubby and I were facing some yucky insomnia and kept tossing and turning, so we decided to read for a little bit to help get to sleep. I was about half-way through the book at that point. Needless to say, I finished it that night after a few hours. So if you're looking for a book to read to help you sleep, this isn't the one you should reach for! The worldbuilding and characters are amazing. I had to keep turning the page to see what would happen next. It made me laugh, cry, smile, surprised, and feel warm and cozy. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
Magic Strikes, the third book in the series, has now jumped to the top of my TBR pile. Oh yeah! =)
