Ilona Andrews invites you to experience the first novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series featuring the intriguing fantasy world of mercenary Kate Daniels…

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.

Loved It
fantastic urban fantasy series

Begins with a lot of irritating and predictable urban fantasy tropes, but improves as we read on.

The FMC is great, and intriguing dystopian setting. My other favorite character is Beast King Curran
