Oh Curran! You take my breath away!Magic Slays is another solid installment in the Kate Daniels series. You know you’ve read a great book when all you want to do is share all those great lines with just about anyone who will listen to you. This book has some great dialogue. The banter between the main characters Kate and Curran was funny. I loved the terms of endearment they had for each other – “My knight in furry armor” was one of my favorites.Kate and Curran are adjusting to life as a mated Alpha pair. They still have their disagreements, much to the delight of the reader, but they are in love. Kate is insecure about their relationship, always afraid that she is going to lose Curran. On the other hand, Curran is working on the relationship in his own special possessive way. What makes this series special to me is the amount of research that the authors put into it. I loved the use of lore from Jewish, Russian, Slavic, and Native American cultures. The way in which the lore is incorporated into the story seamlessly is a testament to their talent as writers. There were so many things to love about this book. I liked that we learned more about Kate’s background and her upbringing. Kate and Andrea’s moments together were great. It’s nice to see Kate surrounded by people that care about her. Derek was awesome in this book. I did enjoy Saiman’s appearance and his mad DVD skills. The fight scenes were fantastic and I enjoyed the magical battles.I loved this book. Every moment was fantastic. I want more Curran and Kate!
