My Rating: 4 Stars
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.
Any fan of the Kate Daniels series is already familiar with Derek. His past, his struggles, his heartache and his losses. They are also quite aware of his good heart and the man that you know is now underneath all the pain and damage he has been through.
How could anyone resist not only getting inside the famous lone wolves head but see him with Julie as well? I for one, could not.
I am so excited about this new series you guys! Not only does it flow right along with the Kate series but I suspect will be able hold it's own as a separate kick butt series of its own and that makes me so happy!
This truly has been a series favorite for so long and each book is just getting better and now this, this masterpiece of the tortured wolf and the apprentice and adopted daughter of Kate's, just wow. Julie is truly coming into her own. Growing up and learning new things, maybe not all of them good or safe, but either way, I can't wait to be there right along with these two as they learn it all, explore it all, and get it all figured out.
