Oh my, I loved this book! Magic Strikes is the best book in the series so far! I liked Magic Bites. Magic Burns was better. But this book was awesome!Ilona Andrews creates a world full of magic that ebbs and flows. As the magic hits, all technology becomes useless. She combines this with an interesting lore about shape shifters and other magical creatures. The author then adds in some very colorful characters with all sorts of special abilities. Mixed in is some great dialogue, some edge of your seat action, a love-hate relationship, good battle scenes, and humor.Did I mention Curran? Oh, Curran....(swoons). Probably one of the sexiest lions out there. Can't wait to read the next book!
