The Weekly Recap (124)

Posted March 11, 2019 by Rowena in Books, Features | 4 Comments

We had a pretty bad scare over the weekend with Caiden and my heart still hasn’t returned to normal but we’re monitoring his fever, keeping it down and everything seems to be better with our little guy so that makes me happy. I read some books over the week but I didn’t get around to finishing all of my books from last week because I was distracted with family stuff but I’m hopeful that I’ll pick right back up this week and get all of the books read. Fingers crossed.

Now, onto the books…

Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren’t for the magic…

When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.

Kate Daniels is a down-on-her-luck mercenary who makes her living cleaning up these magical problems. But when Kate’s guardian is murdered, her quest for justice draws her into a power struggle between two strong factions within Atlanta’s magic circles.

The Masters of the Dead, necromancers who can control vampires, and the Pack, a paramilitary clan of shapechangers, blame each other for a series of bizarre killings—and the death of Kate’s guardian may be part of the same mystery. Pressured by both sides to find the killer, Kate realizes she’s way out of her league—but she wouldn’t have it any other way…

I’m buddy reading this with Casee and Holly on Book Binge and I’m really enjoying it. Kate Daniels is a fantastic character and I can’t wait to finish this one so that I can jump right into the next one.

  1. Hope your little one is doing okay! Sounds scary.
    I was glad to see a 4 star review of Repeat. I like Kylie Scott and have had my eye on Repeat but recently read a review that kind of trashed it. I got denied for Call It What You Want and I’m still pouting about it. LOL

    • Hey Tanya!

      Yeah, our little one is back to being a healthy and happy little boy. We’re getting ready to celebrate his birthday with the entire family in Utah in a couple of weeks and we’re so excited!

      Repeat isn’t the best book that I’ve read and the romance is kind of weak but the heroine’s journey to self-discovery was really good. I enjoyed that part of the book so much.
