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.
