It's here! It's finally here!

Ladies and gentlemen, yesterday my copy of Magic Slays finally arrived!  Yippeeeeee!!!
It is only about, oh let me see ... nearly 2 weeks late, but I don't care about that now.  All that matters is that I could finally read it.  I've been trying to stay away from the reviews - I confess that I did sneek a peek at the amazon reviews - and tried to read it with an open mind.  What can I say?  I LOVED IT!

The way the story is told is a little different than previous books, plus an added bonus of finding out more about Kate's mother.  Curran is still bossy, manipulative, domineering, umm... snarly, steely eyed and all that, but his behaviour in no way detracts from the chemistry between him and Kate.  For those of you who still haven't read it (would you like a tissue to stem your tears of regret?) this book leads the continuing story of Kate in a new direction.  There are more factions working together against Roland, and the Order has been compromised - but is that with or without asshole Ted's approval?

All our favourite's are in this story - except for Dali and Raphael!  I couldn't believe that he was only mentioned in passing a few times... what the?  Hopefully he will pop up in the next installment in all his furry glory.  And to say Julie has a bad time is a total understatement, but as River Song always says 'Spoilers', so I shan't tell you what happens to her... hehe.

If you've loved the books and followed them religiously from Magic Bites, then you'll love Magic Slays.  My rating for this book?  2 paws up!
