Fantastic start to one of my favorite urban fantasy series. The world-building and mythology in this is fabulous!

I enjoyed this book more as it went along and the plot and as Kate's character were developed.
I will read the next book of the series to see where it goes.

I love this book. It is a great start to a new series. The shapeshifters are amazing and I LOVE the amount of different type of shifters they have written. The vamps, oh boy, the vamps. ARE. NOT. THE. LVE INTEREST. TYPE. AND. I. COULDN’T. BE. HAPPIER. Go read this if you haven’t.

took me a long time to get into this series. I had checked it our and returned it many times unable to get past the first chapter. After reading the authors are series "Hidden Legacy" which I loved I decided to give this a try again. Boy am I glad I did. I loved this book and am now devouring the rest of the series.

I'd read an earlier edition of this and had to check this copy out for the bonus material, including a prequel story involving Saiman. Also really enjoyed Curran's POV and the other extras! Love this series and love Kate Daniels!

I don't read much fantasy but I love this series. A strong female character who does not need the man to save her.

I just read Curran POV, and made me want to read this series over again. Enjoying it just as much. Usually with a strong female lead the males tend to be bumbling messes, not the case here. They complement each other to get the job done. These books aren't oversexed like some series I can name.

Enjoyable, quick read, nice universe to take a break from the real world. Looking forward to seeing the relationships/people grow. I love that the main characters aren't all knowing, all powerful, they get bruised and battered in each fight thats it more realistic, more plausible. There aren't any "oh, come on are you serious moments" Great read!!

Just finished re-reading this one (and the rest of the series) in preparation for the final book. Still as great as I remember!

I struggled to get into this book, but it really picked up in the second half! I loved the contradictions between magic and tech and how that influenced what the characters were able to do. It was a great ending and now I want to read the next book.

“Why a raven?"
"To honor my father."
"The writing under it, is that Cyrillic?"
"What does it say?"
"Dar Vorona. Gift of the Raven. I am my father's gift."
"The raven is holding a bloody sword."
"I never said it was a nice gift.”

Diplomacy was never my strong suit and my patience had run dry. I crouched and called out, "Here, kitty, kitty, kitty." Two golden eyes ignited at the opposite wall. A shape stirred within the darkness and rose, carrying the eyes up until they towered over me. This thing had to be at least five feet tall at the shoulder. The colossal cat circled me, half in light, half in shadow, the dark mane trembling as he moved. The lion vanished into a dark corner. A whisper of power pulsed through the room, tugging at my senses. "Kitty, kitty?" asked a level male voice. "What kind of woman greets the Beast Lord with 'here, kitty, kitty'?"

When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.

Kate Daniels is a down-on-her-luck mercenary who makes her living cleaning up these magical problems. But when Kate’s guardian is murdered, her quest for justice draws her into a power struggle between two strong factions within Atlanta’s magic circles.

The Masters of the Dead, necromancers who can control vampires, and the Pack, a paramilitary clan of shapechangers, blame each other for a series of bizarre killings—and the death of Kate’s guardian may be part of the same mystery. Pressured by both sides to find the killer, Kate realizes she’s way out of her league—but she wouldn’t have it any other way…
