Publisher's Summary

When magic is up, electricity dies, cars stall, and skyscrapers tumble; when it's down, phones and guns work, and defensive spells can't protect your house from the creatures who stalk the streets. Equally dangerous are the competing factions of The Pack - a highly organized and military clan who governs Atlanta's were-bears, -wolves, and -hyenas - versus the Masters of the Dead, power and knowledge-hungry necromancers whose minds control hordes of blood-crazed vampires.
This is home to Kate Daniels, a mercenary who investigates when things get out of hand. Kate likes her sword a little too much and has a hard time controlling her mouth. But when her guardian is murdered, she must choose between doing nothing and staying safe, or pursuing the dangerous entity who killed him. Kate is way out of her league; but who ever said the right choice was easy?

Hard work to begin with but well worth the effort

Ilona Andrews is a new author for me but I will certainly be listening to more of her work

This book is the first of the Kate Daniels series and has a few problems to begin with - its almost as if you had missed a book and started with book 2 and I found it hard to follow - in fact had to go back and re-listen to the first couple of hours before I really got it and still feel like I missed some bits, but then the book gets going and its hard to put down.

Our heroine is a great character who really grew on me. Starting as a loner but she gradually bonds with a few others who will doubtless feature in future books. I have high hopes for the series being a good one.
Similarities to Jane Yellowrock or Mercy Thompson are definitely there

I liked the narration which seemed well suited to the book and I loved the story, it wasn't at all clear how this was going to pan out until well into the book but was gripping once the action really started.

Different take on Vampires in this book - definitely they are different creatures to the normal ones in this genre.

The book itself is a complete story but obviously there are more books in the series and I will be downloading book two shortly to see where this this takes Kate and hope I have found a new series to keep me going for a while
