2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on June 6 2009
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ilona Andrews is one of those rare urban fantasy authors who just keeps getting better and better with each book.

Seriously, the woman spins up lightning-fast action, magic and a strong, self-deprecating heroine who knows her way around the sword like few ever could. Her third Kate Daniels book "Magic Strikes" is a brilliant example of all three -- Andrews has gotten solid footing in her unstable, magic-soaked world, and spins an elaborate story with no easy answers or solutions.

Kate was already having a rotten night (involving an elderly banshee on a telephone pole) when Saiman called -- her werewolf buddy Derek tried to break into his apartment.

To save Derek's hide (and avoid charges), Kate agrees to accompany Saiman to the Midnight Games, a fighting-anime-style tournament where supernaturals of all kinds fight to the death. It turns out that both Saiman and Derek are interested in the Reapers, a gang of inexplicably powerful humans who are winning round after round. Unfortunately, Curran has forbidden any weres to get involved in the Games (due to a past disaster involving a werebear).

At the same time, there are a series of killings in Atlanta -- horribly murdered weres that somehow didn't change shape -- which Jim has kept secret. When Derek is found beaten and savaged almost to death, Kate involves herself deeper by following the Reapers into their jungle lair... only to discover their true horrible nature, and a magical stone that may be able to destroy all the weres. The only way to stop the Reapers: win the tournament!

Kate Daniels has fast become one of my favorite heroes in the genre. Not only does she deal with a world that constantly shifts between the extremes of magic and technology, she is also hiding from her murdering biological father. Ilona and Gordon, a husband and wife writing team, give us a brand new original view of vampires, weres and numerous other mythologies. A very fun read!
I found the first few chapters of book one (Magic Bites) difficult to get into but once in I never wanted to leave! Magic Strikes is book three and has taken us one large step closer to Kate's confrontation with her father. These characters are very believable and human with strengths and weaknesses that show amazing insight into the greatness and folies of humanity.

This is Book 3 of the Kate Daniels Series. All I have to say is Battle Royale/Cage Match/Octagon. Put them all together with seven...uhhhh...person teams. Add magic/raw strength/preternatural shooting skills.....and you have a fantastic Book 3.

Well written...great character advancement.........incredible storyline. This all adds up to 5 out of 5!

As I am writing this I am already into book 4. Curran... WTF....whats going on? Thats all I will say.
Buy the series and read them in order for the full explanatory experience.

I love all the books in this series. Kate Daniels is my favourite type of leading character, she can kick butt yet still be funny and vulnerable.
