Thoughts: I absolutely love this series. The first two books were so good and after reading the third book I stand by my word that this series is awesome.
I love Kate, I love Curran, I love Derek, I love Julie, I love Andrea and I love Jim. Really, all of the characters are great. Especially Kate though, she’s so kick-ass. Another thing I loved was that I got to find out more about Kate’s history and who she is. You also get to find out a little more about some of the other characters which was really good.
The story line was really interesting and it definitely kept me reading. There’s mystery and fantasy which are my two favourite genres.
Then there is the whole Kate and Curran element. The chemistry between them is right there and they just keep fighting it. It’s so frustrating but so fun to read about.
I loved the ending. I had this huge grin on my face at the end because it was truly awesome and I just loved it. I definitely cannot wait to read the next book.
I could rave about Magic Strikes forever because it’s an awesome read. If you like fantasy books with a bit of mystery thrown in then you’ll love Magic Strikes and the Kate Daniels series.
