When magic strikes and Atlanta goes to pieces, it’s a job for mercenary Kate Daniels in this thrilling novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Drafted into working for the Order of Merciful Aid, mercenary Kate Daniels has more paranormal problems than she knows what to do with these days. And in Atlanta, where magic comes and goes like the tide, that’s saying a lot.

But when Kate's werewolf friend Derek is discovered nearly dead, she must confront her greatest challenge yet. As her investigation leads her to the Midnight Games—an invitation only, no holds barred, ultimate preternatural fighting tournament—she and Curran, the Lord of the Beasts, uncover a dark plot that may forever alter the face of Atlanta's shapeshifting community...


  • Best one yet

    By I feel dumb!
    So far this book has been the best written of the entire series. Actually describes scenes and characters in depth. And the story seems to be picking up more for relationships and character development wise.
  • Great Read!

    This might be my favorite book in the series! Kate and Curran's relationship finally kicks up a notch, and the underground fighting ring plot line kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. It was an incredible read!
  • And it just keeps getting better!

    Kate Daniels is an action packed urban fantasy series with superb writing, great character development in a fantastically gritty, wonderfully detailed post-apocalyptic urban setting. In this third installment for the series, Kate becomes more emotionally involved with the people around her, we learn more about Curran's background and how he became Beast Lord, and the romance between these two characters picks up even more steam. The side characters stay true to character, growing as events unfold, and Kate's past finally starts catching up to her hinting that the series has more excitement in store for us.
