In a world that fluctuates between technology and magic, Kate Daniels is a mercenary who deals in magical problems for the Guild. When her guardian is murdered Kate sets out to track down his killer and finds herself in the middle of an ongoing feud between the necromancers who control the vampires, and the organized shapechangers known as the Pack. Each side blames the other for the mysterious killings that are occurring in the Atlanta area, and Kate is sure that someone knows more than they’re telling.

Curran, as alpha of the Pack, takes the deaths of his shapechangers personally. Joining in an uneasy alliance with Kate, they work to solve the mystery behind the murders. As the body count grows so does the danger involved, but Curran is willing to put himself at risk to save the members of his Pack.

Nick works for the Order, the same organization that employed Kate’s Guardian. With skills that show his own strengths, Nick will join the fight and hope to destroy those responsible for the brutal killing spree.

With some big help from some tentative new friends, Kate follows leads until she finds the truth. Staying alive may prove to be more difficult than she originally thought, and keeping everyone else alive could bring her own life to an end.

Magic Bites is a magical place to visit, where ready or not, life around you can change in the blink of an eye. Ilona Andrews pens a fabulously well detailed world that smoothly slips between magic and technology for the reader. Well imagined with clearly drawn characters, this is a book that fantasy and paranormal lovers are sure to enjoy/
