Magic Shifts (Kate Daniels #8) by Ilona Andrews

Magic Shifts - Ilona Andrews



After breaking from life with the Pack, mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate—former Beast Lord Curran Lennart—are adjusting to a very different pace. While they’re thrilled to escape all the infighting, Curran misses the constant challenges of leading the shapeshifters.

So when the Pack offers him its stake in the Mercenary Guild, Curran seizes the opportunity—too bad the Guild wants nothing to do with him and Kate. Luckily, as a veteran merc, Kate can take over any of the Guild’s unfinished jobs in order to bring in money and build their reputation. But what Kate and Curran don’t realize is that the odd jobs they’ve been working are all connected.

An ancient enemy has arisen, and Kate and Curran are the only ones who can stop it—before it takes their city apart piece by piece…




My thoughts:


I couldn’t wait to get my fingers on this book. I was really curious to see how it all would play out for Kate and Curran now that they no longer part of the pack. No longer being Beast Lord and Consort.  Especially Curran, since he was the beast lord for almost all his life or at least a pretty good chunk of it. Either way, he was always part of a pack. Now being on his own, with Kate has to be interesting to say the least.

I loved this book and it was by far much better than the last few books, at least that was my opinion. We get more of the ‘old’ Kate, pre pack and pack drama Kate and I really loved that. She seemed more confident again and more sure of herself and not having to answer the pack that doesn’t really support her anyways. She seemed more at ease even with all the stuff happening. Well most if the time.

Curran, on the other hand had a harder time to adjust to a “normal” living and it was quite comical at times. I think it will take him a while to get used to living without the pack.
