Magic Burns is the second book in the Kate Daniels urban fantasy series. Ilona Andrews is a husband/wife writing team with many books to their credit. The Kate Daniels series is,so far, their best known works.
This series takes place in the future in a world that is devastated by waves of magic followed by Tech waves. In the magic waves magical things can be done. In the Tech wave technology ( cars, electricity etc.) Work again. Also, these waves have varying degrees of strength.
Anyways Kate is basically an investigator for official order departments as well as a P.I. I don't like giving away plot details in reviews and would rather let the reader discover that for themselves.
These books are very well written and action oriented. That said the characters say kind leave an impression on the readers. Kate is feisty, irreverent,physical and yet has a strong moral centre. She's a kick ass hero of the first degree.
Buy this book and this series. I think the book could be read as a stand alone as their is some explanatory paragraphs here and there but it is, naturally, best to read each book in order.
4 1/2 out of 5. Great series.
