Kate Daniels, Book 2
By: Ilona Andrews
Narrated by: Renee Raudman
Length: 9H and 38M
Down in Atlanta, tempers - and temperatures - are about to flare...As a mercenary who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels has seen her share of occupational hazards. Normally, waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow across Atlanta like a tide. But once every seven years, a flare comes, a time when magic runs rampant. Now Kate is going to have to deal with problems on a much bigger scale: a divine one. When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta's paramilitary clan of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes much more is at stake. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the opening gambit in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can't stop the cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive.
This world is is just getting better and better, is just sucking me in, I love the narrator, she's Kate for me, that happens often enough after you listen the first book in a series, I know there were a lot people disappointed with the narration, but it hasn't bother me at all, I just think she's great, specially with the male voices, I can't deal when a narrator turns our sexy, strong male characters into wimps.

I am totally hooked on these books. They were a long shot for me at first, just looking for something in this genre not about sex and with magic involved as well. I found exactly what I was looking for. Kate is a great character and I want a Curran in my own life. Andrews provides characters that are believable and imaginable and the fantasy realm is lucky to have her! I read the third book because it is not available on audio yet because I couldn't wait. Each character introduced into the story has meaning and a place. Kate is no pushover but she is very in touch with her human side. The first book was a little frustrating trying to figure out exactly what she is but it comes out full swing in the third book so please keep reading. It is worth it! You can read these out of order but I highly discourage it, you will loose a lot of character tension.
I find nothing wrong with the narrator, either.
I highly recommed the series, Andrews, Kate and Curran will not let you down.

After trying the third book and finding it so enjoyable, I decided to buy the whole series in audiobooks. I think Renee Raudman adds great character to the voice and fuels my imagination.
I recommend this to anybody who loves urban fatasy and is looking for a new series to enjoy.
