“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Blurb: 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…
I am so effing excited for Magic Shifts (Book #8 of the Kate Daniels series)!!!! You guys know I love everything Ilona Andrews already, but I have a feeling Magic Shifts is going to be even more epic. So much shit went down in Magic Breaks. Things have changed, there’s a new boss in town and she carries a sword and tames a lion every night! Hells yeah! I can’t wait until August 4th!!!
Here is an excerpt I found on Ilona’s website:
The ghouls lunged, but I was faster. They raked at me with their claws, but my blade found them first. I savored it all, every second of the fight, every drop of blood flying past me, every moment of resistance when Sarrat caught my target on its edge.
This was why I was raised and trained. For better or worse, I was a killer. This was my calling, and I made no excuses for it.
A ghoul loomed before me. I sliced it down in a classic overhand stroke. It fell. Nobody took its place. I pivoted on my toes, looking for a fight. To the left the werelion tossed a broken body to the ground and turned to me.
It was over. There was nobody left to fight.
The monster opened his mouth and a human voice came out, his diction perfect. “Hey, baby.”
“Hey, honey.” I pulled a piece of cloth out of my pocket and carefully wiped down Sarrat’s blade.

Sharon - Obsession with Books
I’m super excited for this one too Jennifer! I love this series.
A great WoW Sharon – Obsession with Books
The best series ever!
It sounds like the release date on this book will probably slip. I would much rather Ilona and Gordon take the extra time to work on the book and be healthy to write many more books.
Yeah, I have been reading their blog too. I don’t mind if the date is pushed back. Health comes first. They are so exhausted, I feel bad.
Oh yes! I freaking love this series! I still have book six to read but I already know I will love it and that this will be a must have.
You will seriously love every book. Period.
This looks like an interesting book to read, I guess I should add it to my to-be-read list then. Great choice by the way.
My Waiting On Wednesday!
Oh no, you HAVE to add this whole series. You will die from the amazingness!
I NEED to catch up on this series. I’m still a few behind. It looks amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing 😀
