Lord of the Beasts Serpent Symbolism In The Old Testament: A Linguistic, Archaeological, And Literary Study uncover a dark plot that may forever alter the face of Atlanta s shapeshifting community She should have seen this coming Kate has a number of things which occupy her mind and her life 1 The wellbeing of her new friends Jim betrays the pack, Derek almost gets himself killed, Raphael is crazy about Andrea and Saiman has new scary enemies They talk like human, smell like human, behave like human but what are they really I am just happy that Kate has true friends finally.2 The dangers that her real family brings We learn who her biological father is and what the consequences of these revelations might be Okay, this will definitely make things complex in the next books.3 The dangerous, illegal Midnight Games Full action, wonderful body conduct scenes in a primitive like arena The description of many, strangely magnificent, out of nightmare creatures that are battling together to prove who is the strongest For sure, the games in which Kate s team participate were my favorites especially the ones that they finish them off in less than a minute.4 Curran persistent than ever to have her Apparently, he has already decided that she is his mate He just wants to have her firstly and answer her questions later Certainly everybody else has realized his intentions except for Kate who does not understand the ways Alpha shifters play and the rules of courtship.I really enjoy seeing them dancing around each other.5 Who has eaten her apple pie or has Kate eaten it and she does not remember it I cannot believe she was so careless and not paying attention to the details in this book Of course she should have seen it coming At least the girl knows where she stands I can t let him kiss me again, because if he does, I ll sleep with him The Top 8 Reasons why you should drop everything you re doing and grab the Kate Daniels series ASAP focusing on Magic Strikes 1 The huge variety of mythology celtic, greek, and now norse and hindu Honestly, every supernatural creature you ve ever heard will make an appearance, preferably soaked in blood and other substances I dare not name, and will deliver you extraordinary threats, unique bloodbath and eventually it will be killed in the most badass way.2 The Midnight Games An underground gladiatorial tournament with a magic jewel as a price We re talking about a massacre of epic proportions that would make George Martin weep with pride And the participants Minotaurs, golems, mages and of course our Valiant Knights of the Fur Prepare for major ass kicking.3 Kate Daniels I gave him a smile I was aiming for sweet, but he turned a shade paler and scooted a bit farther from me Note to self work on sweet and less on psycho killer 4 The action I will admit that while reading the first chapters I thought Magic Strikes would be a 4 stars read, they seemed pretty lame compared to the incredible plotline of the second book But oh boy I was so wrong Once the plot thickened with rogue shapeshifters and the kill or be killed tournament, I.couldn t.stop.reading This series keeps getting better and I have a feeling that sky is the limit 5 The side characters Whether they re sexual deviants or uptight cats or pretty werewolves or devastatingly handsome sex addicts, they re a great addition to the story, with their wit and loyalty and friendship.6 Curran, the Beast Lord of Atlanta, the Leader of the Pack, and Asshole Supreme you expect me to fall on my back with my legs spread Not necessarily You can fall on your hands and knees if you prefer Or against the wall Or on the kitchen counter I suppose I might let you be on top, if you make it worth my while You get the picture.7 The romance Kiss me and I ll kill you, I warned It might be worth it, he said softly The will or won t they status keeps going, and it can be frustrating as hell, but it s the right course Besides the sizzling tension and their fights, in Magic Strikes we saw how much Curran and Kate care for each other, that despite their differences there is something strong brewing between them, something than raw attraction They re falling in love

series, but Magic Strikes reached new levels of fun and games of the gladiator death match variety and just sheer awesomeness.Kate Daniels and her werewolf, werehyena, and other shapeshifter friends get mixed up with some shady goings on in connection with the Midnight Games, an underground organization that puts on illegal, to the death cage fights of the magical variety Kate s young werewolf friend Derek decides to get involved in rescuing a lovely young woman from a particularly vicious group Saiman has a stake in the Midnight Games, but events get personal for him as well.Meanwhile, Julie, Kate s teenage friend mentee adoptive daughter, is having trouble adjusting in school, so Kate decides some impressing of Julie s schoolmates in order, which results in one of the most delightful scenes in the book I reread that scene probably four times Curran, with his Beast Lord magnificence, is slowly closing in on Kate I hypothetically might have read a certain hot tub scene three or four times as well I also LOVE a legal throwdown Kate does when Jim, the Pack s chief of security, tries to stonewall her James Damael Shrapshire, in your capacity as the Pack s chief security officer, you have permitted Pack members under your command to deliberately injure an employee of the Order At least three individuals involved in the assault word the shapeshifter warrior form Under the Georgia code, a shapeshifter in a warrior form is equivalent to being armed with a deadly weapon Therefore, your actions fall under O.C.G.A Section 16 5 21 c , aggravated assault on a peace officer engaged in the performance of her duties, which is punishable by mandatory imprisonment of no less than five and no than twenty years A formal complaint will be filed with the Order within twenty four hours I advise you to seek the assistance of counsel Jim stared at me The hardness drained from his eyes, and in their depths I saw astonishment.Legal prowess FTW Characters make mistakes, but they re not idiotic mistakes where you want to slap them upside the head and or hurl the book against the wall Magic Strikes weaves in another culture s mythology again, Hindu in this case who knew about Rakshasas and vimanas before reading this book Not I And we start getting some real answers to some of the mysteries about Kate s background and parents that I ve wondered about since early in book 1 Total win I was originally thinking 4 stars for this book, but then I realized a couple of things First, I keep going back to the book to reread my favorite scenes Also, I decided it s not fair to compare this book to Pride and Prejudice or other classic or literary masterpieces This is urban fantasy It s meant to be smart and smartass , enjoyable, fantastical, and sexy Magic Strikes is all of these things, and I really can t think of a better book in this particular genre If we re comparing apples to apples, this is like the best UF apple ever Art credit
