Review: Gunmetal Magic

Gunmetal Magic
Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have to admit, initially I was not too excited about this book. I liked Andrea as much as the next character in the series, but I wanted more Kate. It didn’t take me very long to change my mind. I found myself enjoying the book much more than I expected to. But that’s probably to be expected from a book that not only references the need for towels (from The Hitchhiker’s Guide) but also manages to throw in the line “You shall not pass” in a completely justified, but still humorous, moment.

Ilona Andrews has built such a fantastic world where every character is compelling in their own right. I enjoyed the book immensely. Additionally, it was actually amusing to see Kate from the outside perspective. These scenes still managed to maintain (and solidify) my opinion that Kate is one of the greatest characters in the paranormal-fantasy realm.

I can’t wait to read more and about any other character from the world….Ascanio, Roman, Derek, Jim, Julie, etc.

Meghan is an environmental scientist by trade but an artist at heart. She loves all things geeky/nerdy and is frequently found with less geeky friends rolling their eyes at her. She often spouts all kinds of pop culture trivia and nonsense stemming from her avid love of movies, music, art, and books. If not curled up with a book (she reads at least one a week) or comic, she can be found painting with something on a screen to distract her. She wishes she was as cool as Veronica Mars or as Kate Daniels. Besides blogging about comics here you can also find her exploring around twitter, instagram, tumblr, pinterest, goodreads, and trying to keep up appearances on her own blog.
