Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews

Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren’t for magic…
One moment magic dominates, and cars stall and guns fail. The next, technology takes over and the defensive spells no longer protect your house from monsters. Here skyscrapers topple under onslaught of magic; werebears and werehyenas prowl through the ruined streets; and the Masters of the Dead, necromancers driven by their thirst of knowledge and wealth, pilot blood-crazed vampires with their minds.
In this world lives Kate Daniels. Kate likes her sword a little too much and has a hard time controlling her mouth. The magic in her blood makes her a target, and she spent most of her life hiding in plain sight. But when Kate’s guardian is murdered, she must choose to do nothing and remain safe or to pursue his preternatural killer. Hiding is easy, but the right choice is rarely easy


My thoughts

The world building in this book was very creative. Necromancers piloting vampires around was something new to me but very interesting. If your looking for sexy vamps this might not be the book for you.

Kate is a likeable character that's not overconfident. She seems to really know her strengths and weaknesses. Magic Bites is a great start for a series I definitely can't wait to find out more about Kate , Curran and meet new characters.
I would give this a 4 out of 5
I would definitely recommend this book.
