Ce deuxième tome reprend quelques semaines après les événements du premier. Kate est une liaison entre la Guilde des mercenaires et l'Ordre et travaille avec Jim, membre de la meute d'Atlanta. Rapidement, cela dégénère lorsqu'elle tombe sur Red et sa petite amie dont il lui confie la garde. A peine restaurées, elles se font attaquées dans l'appartement de Kate et elle ne doit sa survie qu'à sa perséverance et l'arrivée de Curran, le chef de la meute.
C'est un très joli divertissement, cela ne s'arrête pas et l'auto-dérision dont fait preuve le personnage principal est assez attachant. Et pour changer dans ce genre de romans, presque pas de romance.
Le monde alternatif créé par ilona Andrews est assez sympathique, dans un monde où la tachnologie se bat contre la Magie et ce livre montre à quel point la magie peut prendre sa revanche.

Ca se lit d'une traite et le rythme permet de ne pas s'ennuyer une minute.

Après avoir retrouvé l'assassin de son mentor, Kate a accepté de servir de liaison. Elle travaille donc en partie pour l'ordre.
Dans cette nouvelle aventure, la magie semble perturbée. Les vagues magiques sont très courtes mais très intenses : cela laisse présager un tsunami magique qui a d'importantes répercussion sur la communauté surnaturelle.
Des dieux qui veulent revenir dans notre monde, des divinités qui règlent leurs compte parmi eux, des enfants qui sont adultes, des mère assassinées, des trahisons et par dessus tout … Curran. Qui ne compte pas laisser Kate tranquille. Et encore moins après avoir réparé son toit.
Cette nouvelle est encore mieux que la première. Parfois un peu dure à suivre car très riche, on suit avec délice les péripéties de Kate que l'auteur nous a choisit. Une plume fluide, une envie d'aller toujours plus loin et d'en savoir toujours plus. Le jeu du chat et de la souris de Curran et Kate est hilarant et délicieux, et Bran est plutôt amusant et touchant. La froideur des divinités est plutôt bien rendu, et il y a une forme de justice. Voir le côté maternel de Kate est sympa aussi, et pas courant en fantasie urbaine.
Bref, une bonne histoire alambiquée. Encore!

Magic Burns was a fabulous book!
The more I read about Kate and get to know her, the more I love her.
And then there are some other great charachters like Derek, Saiman, Andrea, Julie... and last but not least Curran!

There is so much tension between Kate and Curran that I wanna shout "get a room and get it over with" while reading. But Kate, for reasons of her own, is not willing to give in to Curran (yet?).

In Magic Burns, Kate is trying to look after Julie, a girl who's mom is missing. Julie's mom is a witch, part of a small coven, and it appears that the headwitch of the coven was craving for power and summoned something dark that was best left alone. And that dark something is after Julie...

A "realistic" Urban Fantasy Novel.....Hurray!!! 17 avril 2008
Par J. Hulet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
Important note: I would not call this a paranormal romance, I would call this a Urban Fantasy book. I have a pet peeve about being mislead and this book fits the former category.

After I finished the first book of this series I was seriously worried that we were headed down the path to another of the too powerful to be believable heroines. The characters were interesting and the author's idea for bringing magic and technology together was good, but I seriously wondered if our Heroine was going to be another Anita Blake who develops new powers every other page.

Book 2. Ilona Andrews gets a big thumb up for letting her heroine get her butt royally kicked several times in the book. She's still a really bratty, smart-mouthed girl who happens to be really, really powerful in magic and other things. Here's the great part. There is a good explanation for a lot of it. She doesn't just magically have powers, she has been to schools and she studies on her own to get better. What? A heroine who works at it?? Thank you, Ms. Andrews, for writing with your brain intact.

The second book starts up pretty much where the first book left off. Kate, our heroine, is still struggling financially, has a hard time keeping a boyfriend and doesn't play nice with others. Her interactions with other paranormal groups continue and she keeps trying to do good while staying as sassy and likable as before.

The storyline follows Kate through the advent of a major surge/spike in magic and the interactions of several different groups who are being affected. The Beastlord who she flirted/fought with during the first book remains a strong supporting character, but Ms. Andrews doesn't just throw them together for the almost mandatory sex that these books too often include without a good reason. Again, nice job Ms. Andrews.

Three things about Kate Daniels 2 avril 2008
Par R. Kyle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
* Weird sh@t is attracted to her
* She doesn't do 'humble'
* She has cute bows on her panties

Intrigued? You should be. If you're a strong fan of kickbutt urban fantasy heroines, you need to meet Kate.

Kate lives in an alternate Atlanta in a world where magic has returned and it comes in waves with technology. Aside from double coping skills, she's got two jobs--one with the Order and One with the Merc Guild. Add to that, two mortgages and enough trouble on her plate that she needs a clone or two to give her a hand.

Someone's stealing valuable maps from the weres and she's got to get them back. A misguided coven makes an alliance with the wrong Celtic God and Kate's stuck with the coven leader's daughter. And the girl comes with all the troubles teenage girls are prone to--and then some. You see, she's a virgin and her boyfriend wants to try and use her for some powerful mojo.

What I'm most impresed with Ilona Andrews' sophomore effort is that she's taken a great start in "Magic Bites" and made it better. Clearly, she's done her mythological research and synthesized it into her manuscript seamlessly. Strong fantasy and titilating romance blend with enough elements of both to keep both camps happy.

"Magic Bites" was an impressive entry into the urban fantasy genre. "Magic Bites" establishes Ilona Andrews as an author who's going to keep honing her craft until she reaches the top of the charts. I wish her every success in that endeavor and I'll be waiting for the next installment.

Lions and mermaids and shaman, oh my! 1 avril 2008
Par Lauren Hutchison - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Magic Burns is the second book in the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. Kate is a mercenary in magic-torn Atlanta, eliminating the magical anomalies that surface each time a wave of magic hits. In Magic Bites, she investigates the murder of her guardian and ruffles a few important furs and feathers in the process. In Magic Burns, we revisit Kate's uncanny ability to attract danger from all sides as she works to investigate the disappearance of a young girl's mother. She must work cooperatively with The People (vampires) and The Pack (shapeshifters), though this alliance is frequently strained.

Fans of the series should not be disappointed by this new installment. This reads like a separate episode - while it does help to have some prior knowledge of the universe, it may not be required for you to enjoy this second book. The romantic fans will be titillated by Magic Burns as Kate's relationship with Curran really starts getting interesting and a rival enters the battle.

Books like this are typically not my "thing," but I have to give the author credit for a work that I finished at a break-neck pace. Magic Burns is full of action, adventure, mystery, humor, and a touch of romance. The emphasis of Magic Burns is the action - the dark qualities aren't quite as strong as they were in Bites, and the mystery is a little rushed. Humor in a book like this is a delicate balance - alternating between comedy and dark adventure is tricky, especially while keeping up the momentum of the plot. Overdoing the one-liners can turn a book into pure schlock or a belly-laugh. In Magic Burns there are some phrases that are a little overused ("In your dreams!"), some reactions that seem unreasonable or cartoonish. But overall, the funny bits are very well done and elevate the series from interesting to endearing. The snark suits Kate well and creates a thoroughly entertaining read.

All of your favorite characters from Magic Bites make a reappearance in Magic Burns, almost without exception. These characters are typically well integrated into the story, but some of them make cameo appearances that are not really part of the story, and a few of the characters undergo a personality shift between Bites and Burns.

The world is intriguing and well researched, integrating Celtic mythologies and new facts about shapeshifters, vampires, and the urban fantasy landscape. Magic Burns takes place during a magic flare, where the abilities of all magical creatures are enhanced: for better and worse. We also get a short, satisfying, and revealing glimpse into Kate's origins. Now that we have answers, here's hoping that the next book will explore the inevitable confrontations.

Magic Burns is a tease and a page-turner. Peppered with furry, sticky violence and rapier wit, the whirlwind tour of Atlanta is far from over.

Magic Burns Simply Rocks 1 avril 2008
Par Reece Notley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
A sophomore book is probably one of the most daunting things for a writer to face. Can they pull it off? Will they be able to transition what happened in the book before in short quick bursts without seeming like they're writing a book report? Can they keep true to the characters that they've established in the first book?

Will the cover art suck? Will the book suck? Will anyone remember the first book and pick up the second?

I'm sure these are questions that Ilona asked herself. No worries, Ilona. You did more than fine.

The Amazon blurb for Magic Burns is like a grain of sand in a sand storm. It describes that little bit of silicon that exists, a hint of colour and maybe a bit of its hardness. You can imagine the sand but not the wind and fury that carries it. That's the kind of book Ilona writes.

I was lucky enough to read this book prior to its release. I took my time reading it because I wanted to revisit the flavour of the world and the characters. Ilona kept them true and in fact, enhanced the spiciness of the relationships she established in Magic Bites. The writing is tight, always keeping the reader on the edge of the thrill and within a few short pages, I care about characters that I've just met.

You can tell that there's research done. Not because it's spooled out into a feed of information but rather, tidbits are woven in expertly until the story comes alive for you. Ilona gives a good treatment of the mythology she's tapped into and opens up legends just enough to be real. It's very imaginable to have a god walking into Kate's world. It's also very imaginable to see the chaos that the god has wrought.

What I like about Kate Daniels? She's a flawed character. Kate's not perfect. She sometimes gambles with her relationships, compromising herself unknowingly and risking herself for seemingly little. Ilona knits this personality into a tight story filled with twists and turns. She doesn't go for rote or cliché. There are people in these words. Tempers that flare as hot as the magic and sometimes even a small break between friends. Personal conflict ride with the plot and to me, that makes a good story. Magic Burns isn't just about the fate of the world that Ilona has created, it's also about the people that inhabit it. All told in with a half-smirk, half-heroic voice of a woman who sometimes is in over her head and probably wouldn't want it any other way.

Kate grows as a character in the books. Her relationships develop and her life goes to crap. She worries about rent as well as worrying about saving the people she cares for. The story is good. The characters are great. The voice of the book is solid. There are no sophomore worries here. A reader can pick up this book and read it without having to go back but honestly, that reader should.

So yeah...Magic Burns... rocks.

MAGIC BURNS is is so good it's on FIRE (bad pun, true statement) 2 avril 2008
Par Erin Satie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
The second book in a series is incredibly important, especially when the first book was a debut novel. You pick it up wondering: was that first great book, MAGIC BITES, a one-off? Can the author sustain that kind of strong character development, dynamic tension, tight plotting, and great writing? Will these books get better and better, or will they fizzle and fall apart?

Well, I am thrilled to say that MAGIC BURNS fulfills all the promise of MAGIC BITES and more. It's fantastic.

The novel opens as Atlanta buckles down for one of the most dangerous phenomena in the post-Shift world - a flare, when the balance between tech and magic goes out of whack and magic surges through the atmosphere with frightening intensity. Past flares have always left a wake of death and destruction, and this one promises to be no different.

Protagonist Kate Daniels is trying to solve several seemingly unrelated cases: someone has been stealing precious maps from under the very sensitive noses of the shapeshifters, a street urchin calls in a favor and asks her to guard a girl with some very special powers, and a coven of poorly-trained witches have vanished into thin air. Eventually, all these subplots converge on one gigantic problem.

Kate, as a character, has only gotten better - fiercer, funnier, smarter, and kinder. Characters we met in the first book pop up again, most notably Curren the Beastmaster, Ghastek the necromancer, and Saiman the guru. Sparks fly between Kate and Curren, and a wise werehyena makes the reader wonder what Curren's intentions really are. Kate makes a new friend in Andrea, a Knight of the Order with a big secret, who I hope we see a lot more of.

The worldbuilding is stellar. Andrews has created a unique, fascinating alternate reality, and in this second book in the series she fleshes it out with mythological creatures, bodily fluids, the power of faith, and a few tantalizing hints about Kate's mysterious origins. All in all, MAGIC BURNS was an incredibly satisfying read, and I'll be waiting impatiently for the next book.
