Sara's Review: Magic Stars (Kate Daniels, #8.5, Grey Wolf, #1) by Ilona Andrews
Narrator: Jeffrey Kafe
Released: December 8, 2015
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Length: 64 pages
Format: ebook , paperback, audiobook
From award-winning author, Ilona Andrews, an original novella, set in the New York Times #1 bestselling Kate Daniels World and featuring fan-favorites, Derek, and Curran and Kate’s very independent ward, Julie. Scarred, solitary Derek Gaunt has separated from his Pack, and is truly a lone wolf. With no family he answers to no one; but is fiercely loyal to a chosen few. So, when several of those close to him are murdered, he’ll stop at nothing to hunt their killer through the magic-drenched streets of Atlanta. Never one to be left on the sidelines, equally determined—some might say stubborn—Julie Lennart-Olsen soon joins in his pursuit; and what began as revenge turns into a race to save the city. Their search pits them against powers they never imagined and magic so old, it predates history. It may cost Derek his life, but there are things for which even he would risk everything.
Four (3.5) Boundless Stars
Derek is the one character I couldn’t wait to get his own story! From the moment he was introduced, and Kate put him in his place, you just had to love him.
In Magic Stars, Derek and Julie are on a mission together to save the city once again. Julie and Derek; a story line I want to see more of, especially when she is older. I think the fact that she is 16 and off limits, is just building the anticipation for when she is of age. A 4-year age gap isn’t much.
The story was fast paced with non-stop action and a good start to a new series.
