Early Review: Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews

Aug 7, 2018

Mercenary Kate Daniels must risk all to protect everything she holds dear in this epic, can't-miss entry in the thrilling #1 New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series.

Kate has come a long way from her origins as a loner taking care of paranormal problems in post-Shift Atlanta. She's made friends and enemies. She's found love and started a family with Curran Lennart, the former Beast Lord. But her magic is too strong for the power players of the world to let her be.

Kate and her father, Roland, currently have an uneasy truce, but when he starts testing her defenses again, she knows that sooner or later, a confrontation is inevitable. The Witch Oracle has begun seeing visions of blood, fire, and human bones. And when a mysterious box is delivered to Kate's doorstep, a threat of war from the ancient enemy who nearly destroyed her family, she knows their time is up.

Kate Daniels sees no other choice but to combine forces with the unlikeliest of allies. She knows betrayal is inevitable. She knows she may not survive the coming battle. But she has to try.


A culmination of epicness!  Magic Triumphs boasts a scope of detail lovingly executed and anticipated Kate fiercely demonstrates hope and power, chaos and love in her final battle.  From start to finish, poignant moments of love and sacrifice deliver the story. Readers will find themselves sharing in Kate's moments of heartache and doubts. Yet, beneath it all, her resilience and will to survive are fueled by her love of family and mankind. That determination will protect all she cherishes even if it's at the cost of her own life. Magic Triumphs manifests every nuance we have come to love from the Kate Daniels series. The characters and the world itself has seized our imaginations. Andrews painstaking invites us to Kate’s ultimate triumph. There are no true winners in war but the desire to be better and do better claim victory.  An emotional roller coaster. A bitter sweet conclusion to Kate’s journey. Prepare for an ending that will lead you quizzically onto a different path. A new future dawns for characters prepared to forge their own stories.  Andrews displays bouts of heroic beauty in the finality of series.
