Summary

In the second book in number-one New York Times best-selling author Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series, tempers - and temperatures - are rising!

A mercenary in magic-torn Atlanta who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels has seen it all - and some things she couldn't even have imagined. Normally, waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow like an ocean current. But once every seven years, a paranormal flare comes and brings magic like a tidal wave. Now Kate faces problems on a much bigger scale: a divine one.

When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta's paramilitary organization of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes the stakes. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the first contest in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can't stop their cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive.

Great Book Brilliantly Read

Whilst the first book in this series was good - this one is excellent, probably because the scene setting was all done in book 1 this one just kicks off and you are hooked from page 1
Renee Raudmans narration is perfect and I would give it 6 stars if possible

My only moan is the rest of the series is all recorded - for example I can buy book 3 on Audio CD from Amazon UK for £25.00! but its not on Audible - in fact none of the rest of this series is on Audible UK (though all but books 3 and 4 are on the US site) so having to resort to Kindle for the rest which is fine when I have time to sit and read but not so good when I want to listen whilst doing other things.
Also the Narrator is one of those rare ones whose performance is actually better than just reading the book so its a bit annoying.

I wouldn't let it put you off the series though as long as you dont mind reading rather than listening

These are such great Audible books!

Action, drama, romance, magic, gratuitous violence, shapeshifters, witches and monsters... What else do you need? Oh there’s heroes and heroines too! This series rocks! Excellent delivery by the narrator.

Blood & Sand

Atlanta hosts The Midnight Games, and team called The Reapers appears mysteriously. The Pack cannot participate, but has an interest, as does Saiman and the local chapter of knights. And always, there's Kate's interactions with Curran....

Sorry but really boring, hard to get through

The 1st book was good but this book was really hard to finish because it was so boring. I definitely won't waste my time on the rest of the series.
