Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews
Kate Daniels #9

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 this…

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 his 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…

MAGIC BINDS in a word was amazing. Just utterly fantastic. It was everything great about this series wrapped up into an amazing story and plotline and I absolutely loved every minute of this book. In fact I loved it so much, I wanted to start over and read it all again as soon as I finished. Considering I barely restrained from doing so, I definitely see a re-read of this fantastic book sometime in my near future.

Kate really shined in MAGIC BINDS. Previously she always was this perfect icon of virtue. Despite being seemingly bloodthirsty she never let a man behind and never chose the easy or beneficial path. However, this time around we saw a bit of the darker side potential in her, and while she never actually faltered, the struggle made her feel just a bit more real, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Moreso, the dynamic of all the other characters as they adjusted to this new, slightly darker Kate was more than entertaining as well. Curran's responses left me in hysterics at times, as well as the rest of the cast. I won't go further into detail to avoid spoiling things, but let me just say that all of the character dynamics in this one are completely spot on.

Simply put, if you're looking for one heck of a ride that not only keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire book, but will also leave you with a happy contented sigh at the end, MAGIC BINDS is the book for you. A fantastic book, series, characters, and plotline, I loved every minute of this book. Bravo!
