On December 31, a trade paperback/ebook special edition of Magic Bites, the first Kate Daniels book by Ilona Andrews will be released. This includes FAQs about the world of Kate Daniels, information on characters and factions, a faction quiz, some scenes from Curran’s point of view, and the prequel story “A Questionable Client” (about Kate and Saiman’s first meeting). It also has the best cover of any in the entire series, in my opinion.

Magic Bites Special Edition

This is the start to one of my favorite series, one that has some excellent character development as the series progresses. It also has action, the inclusion of several different mythologies, snappy dialogue, and wonderful secondary characters. Magic Bites isn’t my favorite book in the series (that would be the spectacular third book, Magic Strikes), but it’s also one I think I’d appreciate a lot more on a reread now that I know more about Kate and the secret she was so reluctant to divulge even to the reader.

Having just finished the Kate Daniels novella “Magic Gifts” and the related novel about Andrea titled Gunmetal Magic, I’m especially excited about this special edition. I love this series so much.
