Review: Magic Stars by Ilona Andrews

Review: Magic Stars by Ilona Andrews Magic Stars Author: Ilona Andrews Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Magic Stars is a great little side novella for fans of the Kate Daniels series.

We learn some of the rather shocking and dangerous activities Julie has been exploring, all of which make me very nervous for what is in store for her as she grows and matures. *bites nails*. Derek and...
