Review - Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews

Magic Shifts (Kate Daniels, #8)

Series: Kate Daniels #8
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Source: Purchased used

Rating - 4.5/5

After breaking from life with the Pack, mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate—former Beast Lord Curran Lennart—are adjusting to a very different pace. While they’re thrilled to escape all the infighting, Curran misses the constant challenges of leading the shapeshifters.

So when the Pack offers him its stake in the Mercenary Guild, Curran seizes the opportunity—too bad the Guild wants nothing to do with him and Kate. Luckily, as a veteran merc, Kate can take over any of the Guild’s unfinished jobs in order to bring in money and build their reputation. But what Kate and Curran don’t realize is that the odd jobs they’ve been working are all connected.

After Magic Breaks I was really excited for this series to shake things up a bit. I was tired of the Pack and I was tired of Roland. I wanted something different and the Andrews answered my prayers. While Roland and Pack business are involved in this book, we go back to basics. Kate and Curran hunt down something weird in Post-Shift Atlanta. I LOVED it. 

While most of my favorite side characters were missing from this installment, I liked spending time with just Kate and Curran. Obviously we had to lose some of the pack because Kate and Curran left. They needed it. Their relationship has been strained and, honestly after reading the description of the next book, I'm worried this is the calm before the storm. I just loved that we had a filler book here. After so much build up in previous books to meet the (anticlimactic) villain of the series, it was nice to spend time in Atlanta. 

Overall this book was just what the series needed in my opinion and I've already started the next book. This series is one of my favorites.
