Waiting on Wednesday [15] - I wish I had time to read it!



"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I will also be including books that I just haven't found the time to get to even though I desperately want to read them!

This week's ALREADY BEEN PUBLISHED "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Magic Burns (Kate Daniels #2) by Ilona Andrews



Publisher: April 2008 by Penguin
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal
Goodreads Summary

Down in Atlanta, tempers – and temperatures – are about to flare…

As a mercenary who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels has seen her share of occupational hazards. Normally, waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow across Atlanta like a tide. But once every seven years, a flare comes, a time when magic runs rampant. Now Kate’s going to have to deal with problems on a much bigger scale: a divine one.

When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta’s paramilitary clan of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes much more at stake. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest – and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the opening gambit in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can’t stop the cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive…

  1. This cover is a little better than the first one, it might be the background. I'm interested to read about the world where Kate lives, I should read the first one

  2. Oh, I have so many books waiting for me. I just got Frost Burned from my sister (for Christmas). After I nuzzled my face against the Amazon packaging, I set it aside. The book will have to wait until at least mid-April. Sadness.

    I couldn't get into this series. I tried a loooon time ago at book 1 but it just wasn't for me I guess. Hope you enjoy this one once you read it!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  8. You will HAVE to make time to read this! I love Ilona Andrews and this series in particular! The snarky banter between Kate & Curran is excellent! Plus, you kinda look like Kate on this cover! ;)

  11. Oh YAY I can't wait to get my hands on that one either. It's already been featured as a Waiting on Wednesday for me. I love that series. I hope you love it when you finally get to read it :D

  12. I thought it was pretty great...but I can understand when you just can't get into a book. Sometimes I also think it has to do with what you've just read. With how much you love the Hollows it is surprising though...maybe it's like Jennifer said and the second one would suit you better. Thank you so much for stopping by!

  23. I was told that the first one was the least best of the series...I gave it five stars but I think other readers enjoyed the 2nd book and on even more. I really hope you enjoy when you get to it :D
