Dy's Take

Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews

( 24 ) Kate Daniels, book 1

I liked it.  MC reminds me of a female Harry Dresden.  Curious as to what the big secret of her magic is, so will have to read more.

I also liked the nosferatu-style take on vampires–a girl can only handle so many oversexed, model-gorgeous vampire series. The were-characters were a bit one-dimensional and their origin story borrows heavily, and without subtlety, from LKH’s concept for the same.

And, in a happy change of pace from most paranormal stuff with a female MC, there was NO sex.  Zip. Nada.  Nice to see someone can do it without the characters always doing IT.
