I'll admit that the character of Kate Daniels has grown on me. I guess what was missing this whole time was that Kate never seemed to connect with her surroundings, but Ilona Andrews has provided us with an explanation for her disconnect. What I liked about this book of the series is that we got to see more of Kate's back story and what made her the person she now is. I hope that we learn more about her adoptive father's relationship to her guardian, and that we are filled in on more of the details of the circumstances that caused her adoptive father to run from her father Roland.
I like that Ilona Andrews is setting Kate up for a showdown against her father. It makes me think that this isn't just an endless run-on series; it has an overarching plot and hopefully the author(s) will end the series appropriately. I'm now looking forward to reading the next book and then to seeing where the story takes me.
