Review: Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews (Kate Daniels #9)

*Minor Spoilers Ahead*

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…


Full length novel.

First Person.

I don't think so but there is some messed up stuff in here... 

You need to have read books 1-9 or there is no point reading this.


A happy for now!


What I Liked: 
Erra. (Yes, I said Erra.)
Baby B.
Christopher. (Totally shipping him and Barabas!)
All of it. 
It was awesome.

What I Didn't Like: 
Nothing, this book was so addictive. I couldn't read it fast enough and was pissed off when it ended because I don't want to be only one book away from this wonderful world coming to an end!

Oh ok, if I had to pick something to gripe about it'd be Jim but he's Jim and his reactions are within character so I can't even complain about him.

Other Thoughts:
Only one more book! I can't believe there is only one more book to go in this series! I mean, I'm glad the Roland stuff is coming to an end but I could read about Kate and Curran's adventures for the rest of my life and be quite happy... My one consolation is that the next book looks like it takes place a couple of years after this one so yeay! 

“You're like a crazy cat lady, but you collect killers instead of fluffy cats."
"I don't collect killers."
"Yes, you do, and those who aren't killers turn into killers by the time you're done. You made Julie into a maniac. That child has more knives on her than a squad of the PAD.” 


“Did you run any of this by Curran?” 
“I told him I was about to do something idiotic and dangerous, and he told me to go ahead and let him know if he could help in any way.” 
“I don’t understand your relationship.” 


“Where the hell would I go without you, Kate? No matter where I went, you would be there in my head. I would miss you every moment of my life.” 


“I looked at Curran. “You killed an animal god and then you ate him?” 
“Maybe,” Curran said. 
“What do you mean maybe?” 



  1. I have an Ilona Andrews audiobook that I'm excited to try out. Glad you liked this one! Makes me all the more interested to try out her books. :) ~Aleen
