Bestselling author Ilona Andrews has penned a new novel in the bestselling Kate Daniels world—BLOOD HEIR. The book started out as a love letter to fans and turned into an amazing story all its own that will entertain new readers as well as delight old ones.
From SJ, our reviewer at Romance Junkies
Note: I’m a HUGE Ilona Andrews fan. I buy everything they write. And this book, which they started to write in a series of free blog posts to distract their fans from the mess that was 2020, was a kindness. Releasing this book after making it even better with a cohesive storytelling, more humor, and consistency from the Kate Daniels series, they did the impossible. They actually made the Kate Daniels series even better!!!! So yes, I’m biased in writing this review. But I’d also be harder on this book because I so loved the Kate Daniels books so much. BLOOD HEIR is a triumph! Okay, now read the rest of the review…
Aurelia Ryder comes to town to void a coming prophecy. Her real name, Julie Lennart-Olsen, belonged to the ward of Kate Daniels, previous savior of the city of Atlanta. Eight years have passed since Julie’s been back, and in the meantime, her life has changed considerably.
Now looking like a complete stranger with crazy magic and a mission to save those she loves from annihilation, Julie–Aurelia–returns to Atlanta. She can’t contact her family without a dangerous prophecy coming true, though she does see plenty of old friends, many fans will clap and jump up and down to see once more.
The passage of time has changed everything, and Aurelia contends with a new pack structure, her uncle who can’t know who she is, and a man from her past who left a huge whole in her heart. But the action doesn’t center around romance. This is the first of an urban fantasy series with a story arc that will continue into the next book, though the story itself wraps up neatly in this first volume.
With incredible world-building, fascinating magic, and clever banter that never fails to entertain between well-rounded characters, BLOOD HEIR is a MUST HAVE for Kate Daniels fans as well as new readers to the amazing Ilona Andrews.
As a fan, I have to say, seeing Conlan, Luther, Nick, (Derrick!!!!), and the children of so many characters we know and love, I was thrilled and have already read the book twice. Time to go back for yet another read.
