As a mercenary who cleans up after magic goes wrong, Kate Daniels has seen her share of occupational hazards. Normally, waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow across Atlanta like a tide. But once every seven years, a flare comes, a time when magic runs rampant. Now Kate's going to have to deal with problems on a much bigger scale; a divine one.

When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta's paramilitary clan of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes much more is at stake. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest - and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the opening gambit in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can't stop the cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive...

This book is definitely better than the first one! I thought I wouldn't survive reading it after the first few chapters, but as I went on the story became interesting and intriguing. 

Kate Daniels never failed to make me excited on her next moves. She's a kick-ass heroine. The stubbornness was still there but she's so adorable! In this book, there's already a development on the relationship between her and Curran which I really anticipated. 

It was a nice read to start the year! A mix of adventure, suspense, action and a little romance will keep you reading til the last page. When I read the first book of the series, I admit I was not that impressed. I liked the world building but there's too much going on that I think it already complicated the story. However this time, the author managed to tell a story that is captivating eventhough there's a lot of ideas involved. 

Well now I'm impressed and I'll keep on reading the series!
