Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews

Magic Bleeds: Kate Daniels Book 4 by Ilona Andrews -

Amazon Product Description

Kate Daniels cleans up the paranormal problems no one else wants to deal with-especially if they involve Atlanta's shapeshifting community.

And now there's a new player in town-a foe that may be too much for even Kate and Curran, the Lord of the Beasts, to handle. Because this time, Kate will be taking on family.
I was hooked on this series from the go.  I have been awaiting this book, and now am awaiting the next one, which I will preorder as soon as I am able.  I started reading this as soon as I finished Changeless by Gail Carriger and put it down only to sleep and work - yes, I read while I ate.  Loved it!  The characters are great, the plot is solid, and the relationships are fantastic.  I truly enjoy the dynamics between the different shifter groups and the humans.  Kate is a fantastic heroine!  The author keeps you engaged all the way to the end.  One thing I like about this series is that the end of the book feels finished - but not over.  It, like the three books before it, is a great read.
I have to share my favorite quote from this book - it says so much about the kind of character Kate is.  (It is at a point when the council is meeting to decide Kate's place - so to speak.  I was going to use it as a teaser, but I will be reading a different book on teaser Tuesday).

"Some of you know me. Some of you have seen me fight and some of you are my friends. Have your vote. But know this: if you come to remove me, come in force, because if you try to separate me from him, I will kill every single one of you. My hand won't shake. My aim won't falter. My face will be the last thing you'll see before you die." 

WOW! What a week!

School is out!  The kids are probably more excited than I am, but I can't say I am not glad for it to be summer break!  89 days of sleeping in, reading all day, and staying up too late!  Life is good!  Thanks to all my followers for hanging in there this week when I was too busy to blog!  I will be posting about Minnesota authors, working on my challenges, and participating in Camp Read-a-lot (SELCO) so there should be lots to see coming up soon!  I will be posting some stats from my school reading club too!
