Gunmetal Magic (Kate Daniels #5.5)


As you may know from the title this is part of the Kate Daniels series. And you would be correct. This novel follows Andrea right after she helps Kate destroy Kate’s Aunt. Here is a brief background on this novel provided by Goodreads: The New York Times bestselling Kate Daniels novels have been hailed as “top-notch urban fantasy” (Monsters and Critics). Now, Ilona Andrews delves deeper into Kate’s world, and reveals its untold stories…
After being kicked out of the Order of the Knights of Merciful Aid, Andrea’s whole existence is in shambles. She tries to put herself back together by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend. When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano—the male alpha of the Clan Bouda, and Andrea’s former lover—die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate. Now she must work with Raphael as her search for the killer leads into the secret underbelly of supernatural Atlanta. And dealing with her feelings for him might have to take a back seat to saving the world…

Andrea has had such a hard life and a harder time trying to get her love life on track. It seems that even the baggage that we all carry wasn’t enough to stop Raphael from walking away. Now it is time for their second chance. Normally the novel is written in Kate’s perspective, this novel is written in Andrea’s. I find it very interesting to see her side of the story and to read her point of view, especially hear her thoughts on things that we normally do not get to hear. I enjoyed this novel. I thought it was a great addition to the Kate Daniels series.

I thought the connection between Andrea and Raphael could not be denied. I loved seeing how they work things out. Not to mention that sex scenes were not half bad. What do you expect when it’s animals coming together? I wont mention more, just that you should definitely read the novel. I recommend reading it before the sixth book.

I give this novel 4 out of 5 stars. Great read. I cannot wait for more. Currently I am reading The Scarlett Letter (I need to get it done before the semester starts. Ugh…) So I should have more gaps between when I post. I am truly sorry about that but let’s be honest, blogging has no money behind it. I need the money. Hope everyone is well. And Happy Readings. Don’t forget that many good author have books coming out this month. Check it out on goodreads.
