Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Kate Daniels series re-read: Magic Stars

Magic Stars  -  Ilona Andrews I love Ilona Andrews' writing and the Kate Daniels series is one of my favourites, but honestly, wow, I'd forgotten how bad this little novella is.  I've been interested in the story dynamic between Derek and Julie since both were introduced into the Daniel series, so I was interested in where the Andrews team would take it.  

 

Not pulling any punches, I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote my original review - I was incredibly kind.  Re-reading this, after re-reading the entire Kate Daniels series, it doesn't even feel like it was written by the Andrews team; it reads like fan-fiction.  I don't know if here will be another book focused on Derek and Julie - I hope so - but if there is, I sincerely hope it's better than this one.

 

I read this for the Full Moon square in Halloween Bingo.
