  • ✘✘ Sarah ✘✘ (former Nefarious Breeder of Murderous Crustaceans)
    A well-known 18th century author once said: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that Kate Daniels is the Best Bloody Shrimping Urban Fantasy Series That Ever Was and Ever Will Be.” I can’t remember this most perceptive author’s name, unfortunately (view spoiler)[I think she might have had a son named Dar…something at some point. Maybe. Perhaps (hide spoiler)], but one thing’s for sure: those 18th century folks really had Impeccabl...

    Joint review with Anne at Books of My HeartWOW!!! WHAT AN ENDING TO A SERIESAnne and I both read Magic Triumphs and also listened to the audio version. I was on the beta team. Anne was fortunate to get an eARC and we both received the audio for review. It is hard to do such an amazing book justice. I've said many times how it is my favorite series. So we decided to try to answer some questions for you (without spoilers).1. If you could give peopl...

    It’s been a fun ride, Kate. I know we’ll see other again, but it won’t be the same. You’ve fought your battles, and now you’re letting someone else pick up the torch. Enjoy the peace and quiet. You’ve earned it. Full RTC. BUT. Know this—it’s everything you could possibly wish for it to be. 2/13/18:B/c why? B/c CURRENTLY READING. *flails* *moonwalks* *booty shakes*10/26/17 - Derek SNIPPET:

    It's over.But the good news is that it's a pretty nice last installment in a much-beloved series.I think most fans will be happy with the way everything turned out for the characters, and I'm looking forward to any and all spin-offs that team Andrews comes up with from this world.*mentally sends out plea for Derek & Julie stories & at least ONE book with Roman*Ok, like every series ending, this is almost less about the Big Battle with Roland and ...

    The book series that has been my favorite thing ever written on paper has come to an end. I feel so empty inside now. I'll just fill that emptiness with ice cream and booze. Pretty much my prescription for anything that ails ya. Try this at home kids!This book hasn't been out for very long, so I will just give general quotes to prove its awesomeness. It's basically overflowing with awesomeness. Like spewing it all over the place. Much like you wi...

    This was not a bad way to end a ten book series at all. But... I can't say I loved it. For the first 200 pages or so, it felt like another cool Kate magic investigation. Then, the meat of the plot finally kicked in towards the last 100 pages or so. Everything happened SO fast at the end.Roland must be a crazy hard character to write, and in the end, I felt the authors didn't fully know what to do with the "epic" showdown that was supposed to happ...

    Re-read 29/1/19After re-reading it, I really want a novella with Kate's adventures (view spoiler)[ while pregnant. I cannot believe that the woman just took it easy for nine months. I'm also kinda mad at Julie for not talking to her before leaving. She can be upset but she should have talked to Kate. And I don't buy Saimans death. I bet he gets resurrected in Unicorn Lane. (hide spoiler)] Rating remains the same.4.25 stars2/1/19 Review now posted...

    It's over! 😭It's been two weeks since I turned the last page of this book and yet I find myself unable to let this book go. There are so many good things about this book, so many funny moments that still makes me laugh. But there are also things that I want authors should have dealt better with. Needless to say this was one of the most anticipated book of this year for me. I read 4-9 to get myself ready to read this big finale, one final battl...

    OH NO. It's over. The series is over. *dies**remembers two more Hughs and potential same world books and kind of perks up a little tiny bit**throws temper tantrum*Review to come on release date.

    4.5 stars! Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature:Kate Daniels, after nine novels’ worth of fighting magical villains, romancing Curran the Beast Lord, developing her own über-magical powers and preternatural sword-fighting abilities, and magically claiming all of Atlanta as her territory (and that’s only a start), gets an ending to her story in Magic Triumphs, the tenth and final book in Ilona Andrews’ popular KATE DANIELS serie...

    “Behold, the Immortal One, the In-Shinar, the Blood Blade of Atlanta.” *few spoilers*It’s a bittersweet feeling every time you reach at the end of a journey. You feel satisfied because this trip has been fulfilling and full of memories, but at the same time you feel so sad because it is time that you need to move on with your life and you know that you will miss your fellow travellers, your companions. Kate Daniels’s world has been an awe...
  • carol.
    The last book in a ten-book series. By all means, don't start here. However, I do recommend reading this series if you enjoy ass-kicking sword-fighters, unusual but accessible world-building, and well-rounded characters. The cast also includes vampires--with quite a different take--shapeshifters, and a wide variety of myths.Still, I'm not sad the Kate Daniels series is ending. It's odd to me, in a way, that we look for overarching plots in our e...

    4.5 starsI’m not even pretending that this review is easy to write.From the moment I found out that Magic Triumphs would be the last Kate Daniels novel, I had a hard time accepting it. I couldn’t imagine a life without this series. But now, after reading 10+ novels about Kate’s battles with gods, monsters and the different power plays in and around Atlanta, I can say with absolute certainty that Kate deserves this ending.Battle after battle...
  • Emma
    So now concludes one of the best, if not THE best, urban fantasy series of all time. Kate Daniels got her ending. And worry not, fellow fans, her creators have done her proud.Firstly, if you haven’t read the other 9, don’t bother finishing this review, just go get Magic Bites and enter the world so many of us have loved for over 10 years. That original book isn’t their best- I struggled to get into it initially and nearly put it aside. When...
  • Evgeny
    Kate Daniels discovered that a very powerful human/being/creature with a big army wanted to destroy Atlanta. If this was not enough her father - another powerful magician - was hell-bent on killing her child (and you think you have some misunderstanding with your parents!) In other words, business as usual for Kate. In fact the way I described the plot it could be applied to about half the books of the series. This one however is special. This is...

    Goodbyes are hard, and it's even harder when you're saying goodbye to a series that you've lived and breathed for the last year or so. I never expected how much this series would come to mean to me when I started reading Magic Bites last year. After 9 books, several novellas and one spin-off later, we finally get the final book in Ilona Andrews' wildly successful Kate Daniels series, and they delivered! “You and me, Kate. We’re forever.” ...

But after being disappointed by the ending of another favorite series (I’m looking at you Iron Druid!) I was soooo happy Magic Triumphs does not disappoint! So much to love here! Conlan! Too cute!!! Hugh, Julie, Derek, and of course, Curran!! That’s not to say that I’m not sad that the se...

    It's over. Ish. At least, the Kate Daniels-Lennart cycle is DONE.It's been one hell of a ride, with bigger and badder enemies, like dear papa wanting to be in her life to take and corrupt his perfect magical grandchild or elder gods/dragons from pocket universes wanting to use and share Kate's new godhood in ruling the whole world.You know, the same little problems on the same scale as Curran and Kate's little jealous tiffs. Or the fear. You know...

    Ilona Andrews probably could have written Kate Daniels books for another 10 years and made a fortune. They are wildly successful and even after 10 books, fans love them every bit as much as they did years ago... if not more. I know I do. But that makes it all the more impressive that they decided to end this series on top. They finished Kate’s story and they did it in spectacular fashion, giving me everything I wanted and needed from an epic co...

    1st Read - July 20182nd Read - August 2018Anyone who knows me or who has been following my blog for any length of time should already be aware that I'm a proud member of the Ilona Andrews fan club and totally addicted to this writing duo's books. The Kate Daniels series has been one of my favourites for such a long time now and it's one I reread over and over again so it's fair to say I'm hugely invested in this world and these characters. It's r...

    Well, that happened. It's the end of an era, or rather a book series. I'm not spoiling anything, but just know that there was pretty much no chance of me NOT giving this book five stars short of Andrews deciding to kill off every major character. I think that was a double negative, but whatever, I'm in mourning for the end of my favorite UF/PNR series ever, so cut me some slack. And yes, there are spin-offs of this series and Andrews also writes ...
  • Kira
    As happy as I am to have gotten to read this early, I'm also sad because I'll never get to read a new Kate Daniels book ever again. This series is amazing! I love the way it ended. It was better than anything I imagined.It was funny. It was touching. I didn't want to put it down. I read the whole thing in one sitting while battling a migraine. It was that damn good. Some parts were really gruesome. So much was going on. All of my favorite side ch...

    Have you ever had a series that was everything you ever wanted and you both wanted to consume every book in a crazy-fast reading blur and savor them so they never ended? I am sad to see Kate and company end, but so delighted that I got to be along for the ride. Not sure how to talk about this one without it being one big spoiler-fest, so I’m going to put the whole thing in spoiler tags. (view spoiler)[Conlan=ADORABLE. Kate being the world’s m...

    I felt this book was a great wrap up to the Kate Daniels series. This was one of those very rare series that actually managed to get better and more enjoyable with each new instalment. I felt like the first few books in this series were nothing special but now that I've wrapped up this 10th and final book I can honestly say I enjoyed this series a lot! It probably ranks in my top 2 or 3 UF series. I was actually surprised by the way some of the t...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.I absolutely loved this book! There really is no word that describes how amazing this story is. I have been looking forward to this book since I finished reading the previous book in the series almost two years ago. I have also dreaded reading this book because I knew going in that this was going to be the final book in the Kate Daniels series which part of me never wants to see come ...

    Finished this during my road trip to Italy yesterday but haven't had time to gather my thoughts into a coherent review yet. Will update soon, but suffice it to say that I loved almost every second of it and laughed out loud so often that the other two in the car with me grew very much concerned. ;PRTC------------------------------------------------So, after finding some time (and a spot where I have enough signal to post my review), here is the a...

    You can now find this review at Novel Notions.Actual rating: 3.5 starsSpoiler-free review. This is an extremely difficult book to review, friends. It's no secret that I fell in love with this series, its humor and atmosphere since the first book. I fell in love with Kate, I fell in love with Curran, with Derek, with Doolittle, with unexpected characters that slowly grew on me over the 10 books (but not with Julie. NOPE. Sorry, I tried but nope. T...
