J'ai toujours un peu de mal avec les anthologies car je n'aime pas ne lire qu'une partie du bouquin. Je salue donc vraiment l'initiative de publier en numérique chaque nouvelle seule.
Dans celle-ci nous retrouvons Andrea aux commandes. Après les événements du tome 3, Kate ne peut pas prendre l'affaire en charge, et Andrea se retrouve à faire équipe avec Raphael.
On aime cette nouvelle autour pour l'intrigue que pour voir Andrea et Raphael se tourner autour. C'est plaisant de voir leur histoire se former et leurs doutes s'effacer.
Question intrigue, l'auteur réussit une fois de plus à en construire une très équilibrée et passionnante en peu de pages. Mythologie et morts seront au programme !
Je vous recommande vraiment cette nouvelle qui, si elle n'apporte rien à la série principale, n'en reste pas moins très bonne et très agréable à lire !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Andrea and Raphael's story with Magic Bleeds answers 21 mai 2011
Par A Book a Day - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
This is a fantastic, must read companion for any lover of the Kate Daniels series. It's Andrea and Raphael's story from the Must Love Hellhounds compilation, so if you've already read it there, this is the same story. If you haven't, it fills the gap between how they actually got together and to my surprise, it also provides some heavy insight into Curran and explains some of Kate's antics in Magic Bleeds... think apple pie and welding weight benches. If you've never read the Kate Daniels series, this would be an entertaining teaser, but you would definitely miss alot since it literally falls into a consistent timeline between Magic Strikes and Magic Bleeds.

While Kate is recovering after the events from Magic Strikes, best pal, Andrea Nash, closet beastkin hyena shapeshifter and Order Knight of Merciful Aid, is bored out of her mind covering for her, when she finally receives a call from a man named Teddy Jo who seems to be a friend of Kate's. He tells Andrea he saw a shapeshifter who's tail is on fire being chased by a giant dog as big as a house. Andrea springs into action bringing out the big guns, literally, to investigate, only to find that the shapeshifter in distress is Raphael, the werehyena who's been courting her, and the giant dog is actually a twenty foot tall, three headed mythological creature of Hades, Cerberus. Together, Andrea and Raphael get caught up in a mystery with vampires, missing bodies, an Angel of Death and magical apples.

This short story, like all of Ilona Andrews work, is simply incredible. Andrea is a bada$$ in her own right and you finally get to see her mettle here. The dialogue is as funny and witty as ever but the story goes deeper than mere physical attraction between Andrea and Raphael. As they spend time together and learn about one another, you really do see a cosmic relationship building. That, and the chemistry between them is explosive. Magic Mourns has everything you would hope and expect as part of the Kate Daniels series including tons of action and plenty of snark. Even with the absence of Curran and only a cameo appearance by Kate, this story is perfect in its own right. The ending is absolutely riveting and although it answers several questions, it raises even more to leave you panting for the next installment.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The first of the Magic novellas 27 mai 2011
Par M. Wanchoo - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
In "Magic Mourns", which is a 90-page novella in the anthology "Hell Hounds", we get a POV from Andrea, Kate's friend as Kate is in the background due to the climax of Magic Strikes and Andrea gets to deal with the Order's problems as Kate's replacement. Andrea has not been able to get much outdoors action due to certain issues which were focused upon in Magic Burns [2nd Kate Daniels book]. She gets a call from out of town to investigate a three headed dog that seemed to be chasing a Pack animal.

She jumps onto this chance and on further investigation it turns out that the creature in question is none other than Ralph [the were-hyena who is smitten by Andrea]. The reason for him being chased has something to do with his mother Aunt B. the current Alpha for the Hyena clan & her mate. The tale then expounds as to what might be happening and why a certain three headed dog [whose mythological background you can easily guess] is hell bent upon his stay at a certain place.

This novella is set in the timeframe after the events of the third book and is a nice departure from Kate and we get to see more of Ralph & Andrea who seem to be another crazy couple in-the-making. The mythological aspect discussed in this tale is again a new one. The authors are doing a swell job of concocting their tales and utilizing different mythos to power their stories and yet developing links to enmesh them cohesively as a part of this series.

This novella serves as a nice sidebar to the Magic series and preferably will have to be read before the 4th book "Magic Bleeds" as some characters and the tale's ending bears minor ramifications in the next Book. Overall an "A" effort and a story not to be missed by fans of Ilona Andrews.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Andrea & Raphael *drool* 9 juin 2011
Par Sandra L. Powers - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
This is a great novella - excellent pacing and action, good meaty character development for fans of the series, and several really funny bits ... not to mention lots of naked Raphael.

And it's not a terrible place to get a quick taste if you're considering starting the series. Some of it would go over a new reader's head, but there is plenty of in-line context and the action and interpersonal parts stand fine on their own.

I am also impressed at how well Ilona Andrews managed to keep Andrea's voice distinct from Kate Daniels' despite the surface similarities between them. I never forgot that I was reading Andrea.

The best part of this novella, though, is the opportunity to see Andrea and Raphael working together. Between that and watching the two of them spar, we get more insight into both of their characters, plus a bit of backstory on Andrea.

And hey, naked Raphael.

I was reading this Kindle story and kept thinking how familiar it was. Finally I looked at my notebook and discovered that I had indeed already read it in the anthology Must Love Hellhounds. Since I had not read it since 2009 I decided to go ahead and finish the Kindle version. Sure enough, it was just as good as I had remembered it being.

Kate Daniels has been injured in that epic battle in the arena and is on medical leave and Andrea Nash is trying to substitute for Kate so she can have some actual recuperative down time. When Andrea gets a call about a shapeshifter being chased by a giant dog she heads out to handle the situation. Well, what she discovers is that the shapehsifter is Raphael, a werehyena who considers himself to be courting Andrea and the giant dog is actually Cerberus from Greek mythology fame.

Even if you have never read any of the full length Kate Daniels novels you will get a good background of what has happened to the city of Atlanta during the conflict between the world of magic and the world of technology from this novella. This story will not acquaint you with the main character of Kate, but Andrea does figure in the novels quite prominently so learning the backstory of Andrea and Raphael is definitely not a bad thing. I do wish the publisher had put some notice on this *eSpecial* to let fans know the story was not new. My mistake for not checking it out more fully.
