Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren't for the magic. When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.

Kate Daniels is a down-on-her-luck mercenary who makes her living cleaning up these magical problems. But when Kate's guardian is murdered, her quest for justice draws her into a power struggle between two strong factions within Atlanta's magic circles.

The Masters of the Dead, necromancers who can control vampires, and the Pack, a paramilitary clan of shapechangers, blame each other for a series of bizarre killings - and the death of Kate's guardian may be part of the same mystery. Pressured by both sides to find the killer, Kate realizes she's way out of her league - but she wouldn't have it any other way. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 2/1/2014

    " Just a quickie - interesting storyline, gives some of the background to another story I already read. Magic and bad guys and suspense and a tad romance nicely mixed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tanya Mullins | 1/28/2014

    " This was a quick in between books read for me. It had a lot of the elements and paranormal characters of a Sookie Stackhouse book (vamps, shapeshifters, etc. ) but lacked the intensity of romance. My favorite character was Curran, the king of the shapeshifters whose shifting form is a lion. The heroine, Kate, was not interesting enough for me and the ending did not have enough of a hook or cliffhanger to entice me to read the next book in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosemarie | 1/24/2014

    " A fantastic start to an urban fantasy series. Kate Daniels is a fascinating character, flawed and gutsy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicky | 1/3/2014

    " love this series and this book started it out with a bang. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alisa | 1/2/2014

    " This is one of my favorite series. If you like sci-fi or paranormal books you will like this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sneha | 12/25/2013

    " the magic was a bit difficult to visualize.. but eventually got into it... and yea, the creatures are awesome... the fights are swift and kick-ass... the wit and sarcasm is not 'bloody brilliant', but i have a feeling it'll get there soon... and the first-person narrative works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 12/10/2013

    " I liked this series.I read it a while ago,but I am looking forward to a confrontation between Kate and her father.And, of course, "His Furrinnes" will be by her side:)) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 9/26/2013

    " I kinda liked this one after awhile. It was slow to start mostly because the author just throws you into the action so most of the first half is figuring out what's going on. After that I found it really entertaining and action packed. I'll keep reading the series to see how it goes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carly | 4/26/2013

    " Looks like a great series if you like UF with what felt to me like a strong PNR flavour. I like my UF with as little romance as possible, so it's not quite my thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynette | 1/1/2013

    " Really enjoyed the read, although I did find it hard to get into at the beginning. If you hang on and get a few chapters in you'll be hooked! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 4/8/2012

    " Not my favorite book, I have a few more in the series so I'll see how others fare. I can't pinpoint it, just didn't capture me the way the Kevin Hearne and Faith Hunter Series have. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monique | 2/5/2012

    " april fools "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley Gilbert | 1/4/2012

    " How has this series been out for so long and I have never read them. Finished the first three in a week! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rooks | 8/29/2011

    " The only reason I'm giving it three stars is because it's a bit rough, from a plotting perspective. I stuck with this series, and I ended up loving it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert | 5/20/2011

    " Great beginning of urban fantasy series!! Loved the characters, setting, and the premise of tech vs. magic. Now a must-read author. "

    " I love love love this book, and I just love Kate Daniels. She's tough and she really kicks ass. The story is awesome, the world that Ilona has created is just so awesome, I love this and will keep on reading :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 5/4/2011

    " I love the author's humor. This is one of those stories that you don't want to put down because there is so much action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 5/4/2011

    " I already read the book so I knew the story was good... and now I tried the audio book. The audio book was really great. The most important thing to me about audio books - they're all about the voice and Renee Raudman has a great voice. "
