Another great installment to the Kate Daniels universe. I especially loved this one because the setting is different. Lots of new characters to play with and kill for Kate and Curran. I’m slowly beginning to love all the Pack laws and political agendas. The thing I love most about this is that Kate knows the danger she’s facing, but she goes in head first because that’s the type of person she is. No matter how much Voron trained her to be a weapon, she has a heart. She is not some robot trying to take over the world. She just wants to save lives and get to the truth of things. Most importantly, she wants normal. In the forms of Curran and Julie. I admire her for that.
Now, with this installment, we aren’t kicking butt all over ATL. I loved the European setting, and all the dumb a**es that try to undermine the Beast Lord and his Consort. I just knew that they would have a battle to fight. And then there’s Hugh to deal with. Seriously? After they slaughter a few dozen weredolphin pirates, we have the bane of Kate’s existence to deal with? Well, one at least. I won’t give away all that went down, but this was filled with secrecy, lies, assassination attempts, and a vapid werewolf chick who got on my nerves with her flirting. Granted, Curran didn’t help matters by acting like he enjoyed it. I never once thought he was doing anything but acting. Kate, however, was a ball of jealous anger and man she almost caused WWIII.
I can’t get over how Kate doubted so much here. I can understand it, to a certain extent, because she’s wired to not trust anyone. To have all things Pack thrown in her face like that? So she’s not a shapeshifter, but she’s not exactly all human either. And I can totally see why Curran withheld information. Still, it was heartbreaking to be in Kate’s head when faced with her mate getting his flirt on with the Princess of Ice Fury. And I don’t know about you guys, but I do not like Mahon. It wouldn’t surprise me if he’s the snitch. Because, let’s face it, we all know he wants Curran to mate with someone furry. I can think of one who fits Mahon’s standards. *snorts* I hope that’s not the case, but something is not right here. Saiman, and his abilities saved the day. Well, sort of. I can’t believe he and Curran got along so well. I think he really loves Kate (not in a romantic way), and if someone tried to kill her, he’d take the bullet. I can see him walking around the castle as Lorelei. That’s just too damn funny.
Brace yourself, there is character death. I’m just giving you fair warning. Lots of action, especially at the end. This series has become obsessive to me. Right now I need my Kate/Curran fix. I will be going back to books 4.5 & 5.5 tonight, which are Andrea’s and Jim’s stories (though Jim’s is a short), and moving on to book 7 afterwards. I can’t stress enough how much I recommend this series.
