Review: Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews

Review: Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews Magic Shifts Author: Ilona Andrews Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: It’s honestly becoming difficult to write reviews for the Kate Daniels series because I cannot find the words to express how amazing the books and overall series are.

Every book, while completely original, builds upon the previous story, creating an utterly sublime experience, making me want to reread the series from the beginning each time. If you aren’t reading the Kate Daniels series, you are missing out. Note: This review...

The fact that after seven books and the countless times she’s helped them, the pack still treated Mercy with utter disregard and dislike completely ticked me off. This,...
