Magic Binds Ilona Andrews Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Mercenary Kate Daniels knows all too well that magic in post-Shift Atlanta is a dangerous business. But nothing she’s faced could have prepared her for what’s to come in this heart-stopping novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.
Kate and the former Beast Lord Curran Lennart are finally making their relationship official. But there are some steep obstacles standing in the way of their walk to the altar.
Kate’s father, Roland, has kidnapped the demigod Saiman and is slowly bleeding him dry in a never-ending bid for power. A Witch Oracle has predicted that if Kate marries the man she loves, Atlanta will burn and she will lose him forever. And the only person Kate can ask for help is long dead.
The odds are impossible. The future is grim. But Kate Daniels has never been one to play by the rules...

I would give this book 10 stars! Awesome story! Kate and Curren will go through a lot to save Atlanta. The story has lots of action, romance and the humor is the best! You will laugh and cry but be amazed with all going on in this book! The twists to this story will keep you reading until the end and the ending is awesome! I love this series and hope there is another book! I highly recommend this excellent book! Julie will give you surprises and Christopher will amaze you! Read!!!
I love Ilona Andrews
Keep up the good work!
The Kate Daniels series is like book crack to me. As soon as I start the book, I don't want to put it down until I’m finished, and then I have to wait and entire year for my next fix. One would think I'd learn from my annual wait, but no I haven't since I got caught up on the series last year. Yep, I read the first 8 books in one year and now must wait each year like everyone else for my next fix.
I really liked Magic Binds. We were given all the action and adventure I've come to love from the series, with lots of time for Kate and Curran, and we even learned more about Roland. Curran and Kate are probably one of my most favorite couples in any Urban Fantasy series I read. Even in the crazy magic-filled world they live in, they seem to have some of the same problems as other couples. They have to get their wedding planned, their kid isn't really following any of the rules they set, and oh yea, they have to protect Atlanta from Kate's father...again. I absolutely love that Kate really just wants to exchange vows with Curran and not worry about anyone being there for the ceremony. I loved that Julie is really starting to show more of the person she wants to be. Yes, she is very much like Kate in many things, but she is her own person too, and I feel like we saw more of who she will become in Magic Binds. Roland pushed Kate more in Magic Binds than he had in previous books. I have to say; I loved seeing Kate show even more fight than usual in Magic Binds. I think part of the reason I love the Kate Daniels series so much is because in addition to action, adventure, and romance, we get so much humor in every single book. Some of the humor is pretty dry, but it makes me laugh every single time.
Overall I felt like Magic Binds was a very strong story in the Kate Daniels series. I liked the changes to Kate, and could see much growth in her character. I loved that we got to spend time with some of my favorite members of the pack, and found myself even liking some characters I'd not liked in the past. I will say I felt like part of the storyline just ended rather abruptly, and I would have liked more of a resolution to it. Not to give any spoilers away, but I have to say Kate and Curran's wedding was everything I had hoped for and I felt it was absolutely perfect for them.
Fans of the Kate Daniels series will be completely in their happy place while they read Magic Binds. I highly recommend reading the entire Kate Daniels series to anyone who is a fan of the Urban Fantasy genre. I will say you really do need to read the series in order to understand the history of the characters and the dynamics of the world and everything going on currently. I caught up on the entire series last year in audiobook, and can highly recommend them to anyone who wants to give this series a try.
Rating: 4 Stars (B+)

This is a fantastic addition to the Kate Daniels series. You won't get it if you haven't read the rest of the books and novellas. If you have, it's adventurous, sweet and a little sad. I can feel the end of the series coming and I'll be sad when it comes. This is a truly gifted pair of authors.
Well worth the wait!
I love how the authors created a fascinating touchable world that draws you in, and characters that tug every conceivable emotion from you. Rare to find a single book that I want to read over and over, but I have read all of the Kate Daniels series multiple times. Please keep them coming!
A wonderful addition to Kate's story
Absolutely wonderful. Highly recommended.
They did it again!

Once again the awesome team that makes up Iona Andrews have produced a book that leaves you wanting for more and more. Again, we have the many trials of Kate and Curran and their many friends. There are battles, scars and love all mixed in to make this an awesome read. Be aware that this is not a standalone read. You must read the series in order to understand many parts of the book. But that is one of the things that makes it so wonderful. A must read for fans. A good reason for others to start the series. This one is worth it!
Fan from Cape Coral
I had scheduled my surgery on this special day of September 20th. I wanted uninterrupted day to read this most awaited latest book release. What better day would it be than recuperating from surgery which went better than I expected. I'm in heaven. Love you Ilona and Andrew. You made it special once again. I wish magic flows from your fingers forever till the last of my days on earth.
The book is a great addition to the series. I really love this series not because of the magic, shifters or vampires but because of the characters and their relationships. I also love having such a strong female heroine. The characters are very human they are not perfect, they make bad and good choices. I would recommend this series to anyone.
The root of this story to me was family and the choices they make that affect you. Where do you draw the line in the sand? Now that I am done, I think I am going to reread the series! If you haven't read Anything by Ilona Andrews, start you will not be disappointed.
