SnoopyDoo's Book Reviews

I’m a stay at home mom of two little monsters….  Ummm kids and I love to read and coffee runs through my veins . I read pretty much a little of everything but I tend to like fantasy the most. I blame Sarah J Maas who got me stated into the fantasy genre...but to be honest I read most of everything and it just depends what I’m in the mood for. I also read a lot of YA. Don’t judge ….lol

When I’m not reading I love to spend time with the family of course, I also like to watch TV and love to find new shows to binge. Gaming is another thing I like to do and is easy to get me sucked into a game for hours or even days.  Don’t even get me started on Lego games ……addictive …..lol

So as you can see I’m like all over the place but reading is always the thing that I come back to. It helps me relax and lets me jumps on so many new exciting worlds.

I love to meet new people who share the love for book as I do and in my many years of reading and reviewing I met some truly awesome people. Which honestly is the best part about the book word…..meeting so many new and lovely people.

I’m not in any way a professional reviewer. I just like to read books and share my personal opinion with other book lovers.

Review: Magic Triumphs (Kate Daniels #10) by Ilona Andrews

Magic Triumphs -  Ilona Andrews

 

Mercenary Kate Daniels must risk all to protect everything she holds dear in this epic, can't-miss entry in the thrilling #1 New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series.

Kate has come a long way from her origins as a loner taking care of paranormal problems in post-Shift Atlanta. She's made friends and enemies. She's found love and started a family with Curran Lennart, the former Beast Lord. But her magic is too strong for the power players of the world to let her be.

Kate and her father, Roland, currently have an uneasy truce, but when he starts testing her defenses again, she knows that sooner or later, a confrontation is inevitable. The Witch Oracle has begun seeing visions of blood, fire, and human bones. And when a mysterious box is delivered to Kate's doorstep, a threat of war from the ancient enemy who nearly destroyed her family, she knows their time is up.

Kate Daniels sees no other choice but to combine forces with the unlikeliest of allies. She knows betrayal is inevitable. She knows she may not survive the coming battle. But she has to try.

For her child.

For Atlanta.

For the world.

 

 

 

Only read this review, if you have read all the previous books or this book may contain spoilers.

 

 

Well this was it. The end to a wonderful series that I will treasure forever and the characters I will miss.

As always I have trouble writing a review for the last book in a series. It is hard not to spoil stuff so I will make it fairly short.

As all the other books, this book sucked me right back into Kate’s world and I had to make myself stop so I can enjoy the book more than one day lol .

The book starts off a couple years after Magic Binds and Kate and Curran are now loving and proud parents to their son Conlan. Who without giving anything away is just the best mash-up between Kate and Curran you can ask for. Things have been quiet in Atlanta for a while but Kate and Curran, know it is just a matter of time before Roland shows up. Both have grown so much since we met them both and the famous  "Here, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty...” Not only have they grow a ton individually, but also a couple. Though there are still things they will hide from each other for the time being… of course…

Once stuff started happening it goes fast and fast paced and multiple things are happening to them and or around them . In order to win the big fight we have been waiting for, for ten books everyone must come together. Especially since they might be fighting multiple enemies.

As they building or trying to build (some are still buttheads and to stubborn) their final army we get to see many other people from previous books and it I really enjoyed it . One big one was Hugh d’Ambray. I really liked how all the played out in the end and it all came together…. (I still have to read Iron and Magic soon…..very soon)

As with all or most Ilona Andrews books, we get plenty of humor even with this emotional last book in the series. I laughed but I also cried, it has as most previous books some heartbreaking and tender moments. But also some really surprising things happened, there were a few things I never even crossed my mind.

The final battle while awesome was a bit predicable if you know their work but overall very enjoyable. Be warned, not everyone will make it out alive and we suffer some rather big loses.

While most of the story arc was nicely wrapped up and things all came together and made sense, there were a few things I thought was just left untouched or open ended. BUT after reading the epilogue I have some sliver of hope that we will have another spin-off somewhere or sometime. Here is to really hoping. 

I can’t say all that much since I don’t want to spoil it but I’m still not 100% about my feeling with that ending.

Overall it was a fantastic ending to an epic series.  And even though I has some minor issues with some things are left untouched I can’t help to give this books 5 . Because it the end it just didn’t matter that much … I just love it too much. 5 ★
