This series still blows my mind, literally. I don't even know how to review this. I mean there are no words lol. A propeller operated flying Indian palace, weredingo. A monster fighting cage a la thunderdome. It has to be experienced. Kate is still my favorite of the UF heroines. I always feel "right" spending time in her head. The humor, the heart, the way she reacts to things just make sense to me. Strangely enough I can relate. Because as a character, she just makes sense. Not sure how else to put this. Oh Derek, my poor Derek. The imagery that Ilona Andrews is able to create for me is astonishing. The creation of the colors, the smells, the feeling of physically being there. That is what I want from reading. Its why I read.
