No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: if there’s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it…

As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers. Since Kate’s connection to Roland has come out into the open, no one is safe—especially those closest to Kate.

As Roland’s long shadow looms ever nearer, Kate is called to attend the Conclave, a gathering of the leaders from the various supernatural factions in Atlanta. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered there, apparently at the hands of a shapeshifter, Kate is given only twenty-four hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she’ll find herself embroiled in a war which could destroy everything she holds dear…
I know I am super late to this party as this book released a few years ago, but there is so many books to read and so little time! Don't make the same mistake I did though, get on reading this series ASAP and you won't be disappointed.

Magic Breaks is the seventh installment in the series and is the culmination of an incredibly suspenseful story arc between Kate and her evil father Roland. In the midst of her previous adventures, Kate built her confidence, learned to let people into her heart, knitted solid friendship and painfully gathered important allies and she needs every trick in her bag to survive her current adventure. In fact, in this novel, d'Ambray, master puppeteer that he is,  made sure Curran was busy half-way across the world to plot a full blown war between the Pack and the People while Kate was alone in charge. She had to prove her leadership within the pack, protect its members by unfolding a mysterious murder, all the while preventing a terrible war. I loved how she shone with all of her qualities and was able to metaphorically kick in the butt the opposition.

The entire book was suspenseful and action-packed and at times I had to remembered to breath because I was so caught-up in the story. Every event was engrossing, the death of some characters stunning and some revelations were simply beyond amazing. I know I sound like a gushing mess, but really, this novel was amazing beyond words. And I don't want to give anything away so I won't get into details, but Curran's grand entrance toward the end was just mind-blowing. I really loved the escape part of the story line.

I loved that every character joined the party and that we got to discover more about Gastek in particular. D'Ambray was an especially annoying display of strength and I almost pity him, while Roland was an awe-stricking revelation.

Ilona and Gordon really wrote a masterpiece with this series and this novel has blown away my expectations. If I hadn't known this novel wasn't the last one in the series I might have died of an heart-attack but thankfully there are more adventures to come. If you love urban fantasy, you do not want to miss this amazing series.
