I’m always on the hunt for good werewolf books for you, my wonderful readers, to check out and lately the hunt hasn’t been going so well (there are far too many lame werewolf books out there). However, I just came across a series with ridiculously amazing reviews and ratings – the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. These books have thousands of 5 out of 5 star ratings, yeah, thousands. That’s pretty impressive for any series, but especially for a werewolf series.
“The world has suffered a magic apocalypse. We pushed the technological progress too far, and now magic returned with a vengeance. It comes in waves, without warning, and vanishes as suddenly as it appears. When magic is up, planes drop out of the sky, cars stall, electricity dies. When magic is down, guns work and spells fail.
It’s a volatile, screwed-up world. Magic feeds on technology, gnawing down on skyscrappers until most of them topple and fall, leaving only skeletal husks behind. Monsters prowl the ruined streets, werebears and werehyenas stalk their prey; and the Masters of the Dead, necromancers driven by their thirst of knowledge and wealth, pilot blood-crazed vampires with their minds.
In this world lives Kate Daniels. Kate likes her sword a little too much and has a hard time controlling her mouth. The magic in her blood makes her a target, and she spent most of her life hiding in plain sight. But sometimes even trained killers make friends and fall in love, and when the universe tries to kick them in the face, they kick back.”
I know the description doesn’t mention werewolves, but werewolves do in fact play a big role in these books.

Personally, I think the series sounds fantastic. I’m surprised I have never heard of it before now considering how amazing the reviews are.
What do you think? Will you give the series a shot?
