Magic Triumphs (Kate Daniels, #10)

by Ilona Andrews

Mercenary Kate Daniels must risk all to protect everything she holds dear in this epic, can't-miss entry in the thrilling #1 New York Times bestselling urban-fantasy series.

Kate has come a long way from her origins as a loner taking care of paranormal problems in post-Shift Atlanta. She's made friends and enemies. She's found love and started a family with Curran Lennart, the former Beast Lord. But her magic is too strong for the power players of the world to let her be.

Kate and her father, Roland, currently have an uneasy truce, but when he starts testing her defenses again, she knows that sooner or later a confrontation is inevitable. The Witch Oracle has begun seeing visions of blood, fire, and human bones. And when a mysterious box is delivered to Kate's doorstep, a threat of war from the ancient enemy who nearly destroyed her family, she knows her time is up.

Kate Daniels sees no other choice but to combine forces with the unlikeliest of allies. She knows betrayal is inevitable. She knows she may not survive the coming battle. But she has to try.

For her child.

For Atlanta.

For the world.

I have loved the Kate Daniels series from book one! This was a series that grabbed onto my interest and did not let go. I loved the evolution of Kate’s character in this series and the relationship that developed between her and Curran was swoon worthy! I have come to love all the characters in this series and will admit to having a heavy heart that it was coming to an end, but what a series ending Magic Triumphs was!

This story was intense, endearing, and wonderfully executed! The inclusion of Kate and Curran’s son into this plot showed a different side to both of them and I loved that. Kate is a pretty chill character unless you mess with someone she cares for and to see her go mama bear in this story was entertaining every single time. Curran had his role in this book too but he was away a lot but….when the reason why he was gone comes out it is mind blowing.

Overall, Magic Triumphs was a wonderful series ending book but it was not as action packed as I would have liked. I would say that the pacing of 2/3rds of the book was slow and then the last 1/3rd was go, go, go! It wasn’t unenjoyable but it wasn’t what I was looking for either. Also, I am hopeful that there might be an inclusion of a certain character in The Iron Covenant series or a spinoff by how the book ended. If either of those scenarios be the case, then I will be very happy. Magic Triumphs was a wonderful story and I highly recommend it and the series to all readers.
