Book Blurb:

Atlanta is a city plagued by magical problems. Kate Daniels will fight to solve them—no matter the cost.

Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack’s shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and there’s little available in Atlanta.

Kate can’t bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shapeshifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute—and they’ll pay him in medicine. With the young people’s survival and …

Book Lovers for the Prevention of Supporting Character Neglect: Kate Daniels World aka The Magicpocalypse

Welcome to the our first meeting of the Book Lovers for the Prevention of Supporting Character Neglect! Where Book Lovers from across the world stand in solidarity for the supporting cast. Those individuals that make the story and keep us coming back even when the protagonist needs a good smack (*cough Harry Potter cough*). Hear our anthem! Because everyone deserves top billing now and then.

Secondary Characters by Original Cast Recording on Grooveshark

For our inaugural meeting, we will take a close look at Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels’ World. Ilona is among the more considerate authors out there, as she has given various others a chance to shine while Kate and Curran are recuperating (Andrea, Dali, and Julie), but that consideration is no excuse! There are still a plethora of magnificent characters in post-magicpocalypse Atlanta that are …

Book Blurb:

What could be scarier than the first day of school? A crash course in the paranormal from Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner, editors of Home Improvement: Undead Edition. Your worst school nightmares will pale in comparison to these thirteen original stories that take academic anxiety to new realms.

My Thoughts:

I HATE hardcover. Why? Because it is expensive, makes my books heavy, and takes up way too much physical space. To make things even worse, the hardcover print editions jack up the prices on ebooks. It’s extortion and I won’t stand for it! Even when there is a new Ilona-story included.

Which is why I shamelessly promoted the new Sookie story in this anthology to a certain  Viking-vampire groupie who does not share my qualms about underhanded …

The Good, the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me?

Today we want to talk about a topic that irks the hell out of us. We are sure you noticed this too but we finally couldn’t hold back any longer. Changing the cover model in the middle of the series seems to be a bigger habit than we thought so we tried to come up with a few examples to show you how it’s well and not so well done. Here’s what we found. Let us know what you think about our selection.

Susi: Our first example is probably also the one where this whole different cover model problem is handled best. You can’t really see her face on Alpha so it’s harder to noticed that it’s not the same girl. I actually really like how they …

Interview: Author Ilona Andrews + Giveaway

Ilona and Gordon Andrews are a husband and wife writing team, and have written six books – plus several short stories and novellas. The release of their latest book, Magic Bleeds, from the Kate Daniels series recently reached number 19 on the New York Times bestseller list!

Kate Daniels series:

The Smutty Lover: Magic Bleeds is the 4th book in the series. What can we expect from Magic Bleeds, and will there be a crossroads for Kate?

Gordon: I think the crossroads came in the last book. When Kate jumped on the sword, she made a definite choice. This book is about her journey on that road.

Ilona: I agree. It’s more about having to deal with consequences of choices already made. The life that she has in MAGIC BLEEDS, the good and the bad of it, …
