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.



~ 5 Magic Stars ~

Magic Stars is a novella in the Kate Daniels series and one you don’t want to skip; because so much is revealed about two fan-favorite characters.

Before picking this one up you should be up to date on the Kate Daniels series; because the author does recap some important events.

This story leads Derek and Julie to team up and they make an excellent team, maybe something more will develop. Only time will tell. I have always enjoyed how detailed the author gets in her stores and the mythology brought into this one was great.

We finally get to see into Derek’s head. Many fans, especially me, have been concerned for the Boy Wonder. As things are going he’s in a dark place and we finally get to see how much harder his struggles are. We learn so much in Magic Stars.

Last, we learn what Julie has been up to. Besides her lessons with Kate, learning to use her tomahawk, she’s occasionally hang out with Roland when Kate’s not looking. Oh My!!

A lot is revealed and gears you up for the next installment Kate #9, so enjoy! Fangirl and boy yourself out on this amazing novella.
