Last book in a beloved series… what can I say, but of course I’ve read it and love it. And, hate that its all over… but no, the author’s were kind- there are spin-offs and other series. The last Kate Daniels book was exactly what it needed to be to end the series on a high note.
Magic Triumphs is book ten in the Kate Daniels series. This fabulous and gritty post-apocalyptic urban fantasy series must be read in order.
In Magic Triumphs, all that has been simmering and threatening to boil does indeed boil over. Except, of course, Kate can’t catch a break and a new horror descends on Atlanta right about the time she gets word that her father, Roland, is on the move set to conquer Atlanta, her, her son, and the world. Kate is barely holding on by a thread what with motherhood of a precocious child gifted with both his parents’ strengths, being the In Shinar princess that all look to, pulling together the motley group of Atlanta’s strongest to face what is coming at them, and confronting her fears of loss now that she has so many beloved lives in her heart.
Like a good last book will do, Magic Triumphs pulls in all the old gang for one last hurrah together, sprinkles it with a few amusing moments, lots of kick-butt action, suspense, surprise twists, and a grand finale that couldn’t be topped.
I loved the balance of action, introspection, passion, friendship, and the culmination of plot development. The new threat was a worthy one just as the way Kate and Curran face it together was perfect. I finished this book with feelings of triumph to match the title, satisfaction that it ended the way it should, and a sense of sadness that this was the end. Did I mention that I’m glad for the side series to ameliorate some of the book depression?
Don’t even ask if I’d recommend this book. And, for those who haven’t started yet, do so and enjoy the urban fantasy treat coming your way.
I rec’d this book from Net Galley in exchange of an honest review.
