both the story and the narrator. Kate is an awesome character who combines sass and intelligence.

I saw this series on audible and it had so many good reviews I bought the first two books so that I could start at the beginning and I was not disappointed. This series is incredible, Kate is a badass but one you like, you never know what is going to happen. You stay at the edge of your chair or in your mind waiting to see what will happen, you can't guess. It keeps you enthralled. Kates father is several thousand years old, (Spoiler Alert) He killed her mother and tried to kill her at birth. She has in essence in the first book been in hiding so that he can't find her but events come into play that out her. She is friend to the pack, The largest group of shape shifters in the country. The world in in upheaval, it fluctuates between magic and tech and the people never know when it will change. She meets Curran the beast Lord and boom chemistry. But they have alot of animosity towards each other. He gives her Dereck to act as a body guard. He turns into a wolf. But Kate has her own remarkable traits, she can make her blood turn into body armer or a weapon. She has been trained all her life as a warrior so that one day she can go against her father. I loved Kate, Curran, Dereck, Julie, Angela, et.al. they are like a family. You will never know what is going to happen. Read this series, you won't be sorry.

Ilona Andrews is a new author for me but I will certainly be listening to more of her work
This book is the first of the Kate Daniels series and has a few problems to begin with - its almost as if you had missed a book and started with book 2 and I found it hard to follow - in fact had to go back and re-listen to the first couple of hours before I really got it and still feel like I missed some bits, but then the book gets going and its hard to put down.
Our heroine is a great character who really grew on me. Starting as a loner but she gradually bonds with a few others who will doubtless feature in future books. I have high hopes for the series being a good one.
Similarities to Jane Yellowrock or Mercy Thompson are definitely there
I liked the narration which seemed well suited to the book and I loved the story, it wasn't at all clear how this was going to pan out until well into the book but was gripping once the action really started.
Different take on Vampires in this book - definitely they are different creatures to the normal ones in this genre.
The book itself is a complete story but obviously there are more books in the series and I will be downloading book two shortly to see where this this takes Kate and hope I have found a new series to keep me going for a while
