Last year I discovered the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews and devoured them all.  I loved the third book so much that I was very glad I’d taken the advice of waiting until the fourth book was out to read it.  Because once I finished it, I had to have the next book right then and no other book would do!

Now I’ve been longing for the fifth book. Fortunately for all of us Kate Daniels fans, Ilona Andrews comes out with new books pretty regularly and Magic Slays will be released on May 31.  As if I wasn’t excited enough about this, I read what Ilona Andrews has to say about it on the website.  Now I am ready to start counting down the days and compulsively start checking the bookstore for early copies!  (It’s 27 days 22 hours and 0 minutes as I am typing this.)

Magic Slays

Warning: Spoilers below for books 1 – 4.

About Magic Slays (from the author’s site):

Plagued by a war between magic and technology, Atlanta has never been so deadly. Good thing Kate Daniels is on the job.

Kate Daniels may have quit the Order of Merciful Aid, but she’s still knee-deep in paranormal problems. Or she would be if she could get someone to hire her. Starting her own business has been more challenging than she thought it would be—now that the Order is disparaging her good name, and many potential clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of the Beast Lord, who just happens to be Kate’s mate.

So when Atlanta’s premier Master of the Dead calls to ask for help with a vampire on the loose, Kate leaps at the chance of some paying work. Turns out this is not an isolated incident, and Kate needs to get to the bottom of it—fast, or the city and everyone dear to her might pay the ultimate price . . .


So…  Who else can’t wait?
