Book: Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews

Magic Burns is the second book in the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews, and my first read for the seconds challenge in 2009.

Called out to assist in retrieving stolen maps for the Pack, Kate becomes involved in a much greater problem, a problem involving ancient Celtic gods and goddesses and their minions. What makes it worse is that Atlanta, always in a state of flux as waves of magic roll through and then dissipate, is currently experiencing a flare that only comes once every seven years. All magic is stronger during a flare, and much harder to control. Of course that would be when this ancient diety decides to make an entrance! All in a days work for Kate though...

Man does this girl take a beating! We're teased a bit more about Kate's heritage. The tension between her and Curran is alive and well, but we see a learn a little more of his feelings for her through his actions as interpreted by some of the other shapeshifters. We get a little Celtic mythology, a lot of action, and a few tears. Yes, I admit it, one of Kate's speeches just really got me, and made me want to go hug on my husband quite fiercely! The ending is great too, another point to the Curran team! LOL! I'm really looking forward to Magic Strikes, #3 in the Kate Daniels series. You can read an excerpt of it HERE at Ilonaland.com.
