Series: Kate Daniels #12.5, Kate Daniels: Wilmington Years #1
Author: Ilona Andrews (Ilona & Andrew Gordon)
Released: January 17, 2023
It’s been twelve years since the eventful battle we all remember. Since then, Kate and Curran have focused on raising their son, Conlan. They very recently left Atlanta, hoping to offer him some semblance of a normal life. Because that’s going to be so easy, right?
Naturally, their home isn’t even finished before Kate finds herself on the job. A child has been kidnapped, and she’s not turning away from this one. Not even when it drags her all over the city, pitting her against surprising odds.
Holy cats. Magic Tides is the Kate Daniels novella I never knew I needed. Having read it, I honestly don’t know how I survived all the years without it. Reading this made me realize how much I miss this world. Clearly (another) read-through of the series is in order.
With a heavy dose of nostalgia, Magic Tides brings lots of action, worldbuilding, danger, and of course – our favorite characters. Readers have been pretty curious to see how Conlan’s childhood would go (especially after that glimpse in Blood Heir). Well, now it’s just a bit easier to imagine.
The sass, snark, and magic are still very much alive in this series. It is going to live up to any expectations you may have and then some. It’ll make you giggle, cheer, and sometimes groan. And it’ll leave you begging for more.
Long story short – Magic Tides is everything I could have hoped for, and I’m afraid my heart wants more.
