Library Loot : September 2 - 8

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries.

My haul for this week. All are e-books through the Overdrive app! 

Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters (Amelia Peabody #1)
Split Second by Alex Kava (Maggie O'Dell #2 - Currently Reading)

Review: Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews

After breaking from life with the Pack, mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate—former Beast Lord Curran Lennart—are adjusting to a very different pace. While they’re thrilled to escape all the infighting, Curran misses the constant challenges of leading the shapeshifters.

So when the Pack offers him its stake in the Mercenary Guild, Curran seizes the opportunity—too bad the Guild wants nothing to do with him and Kate. Luckily, as a veteran merc, Kate can take over any of the Guild’s unfinished jobs in order to bring in money and build their reputation. But what Kate and Curran don’t realize is that the odd jobs they’ve been working are all connected.

An ancient enemy has arisen, and Kate and Curran are the only ones who can stop it—before it takes their city apart piece by piece…

So I love the Kate Daniels series. Love it. It is as amazing I imagine the Anita Blake series could have been if Anita hadn't gone turbo slut.  (I could get on board with sleeping with vamps, werewolves, etc. but when Anita slept with - I think it was a swan- and there were feathers involved...I was done.)

Anyway, I digress. Kate and Anita remind me of each other they both had screwed up childhood's and are generally kick-ass heroines. The action is pretty much non-stop with the KD series and it makes for such a fun ride.

My only disappointment with this book is that I would like to have seen more character development. I want some major changes to happen, I mean, we have Kate and Curran living together  outside of the Kepp but sometimes the non-stop action puts the character development on the back burner. I don't want to see the character development become stagnant like some series (*cough*Stephanie Plum*cough*).

This book also didn't have enough Derick for me. He's one of my favorite characters and I'd like to see him play a larger role. Hell, I'd like him to get his own book! Otherwise, I thought this was a fabulous addition to a stellar series! How long until the next book.....?!?!
