Mercenary Kate Daniels must risk all to protect everything she holds dear in this epic, can't-miss entry in the thrilling #1 New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series.
Kate has come a long way from her origins as a loner taking care of paranormal problems in post-Shift Atlanta. She's made friends and enemies. She's found love and started a family with Curran Lennart, the former Beast Lord. But her magic is too strong for the power players of the world to let her be.
Kate and her father, Roland, currently have an uneasy truce, but when he starts testing her defenses again, she knows that sooner or later, a confrontation is inevitable. The Witch Oracle has begun seeing visions of blood, fire, and human bones. And when a mysterious box is delivered to Kate's doorstep, a threat of war from the ancient enemy who nearly destroyed her family, she knows their time is up.
Kate Daniels sees no other choice but to combine forces with the unlikeliest of allies. She knows betrayal is inevitable. She knows she may not survive the coming battle. But she has to try.
For her child.
For the world.
"Magic Triumphs (Kate Daniels, #10)" Reviews
WOW!!! WHAT AN ENDING TO A SERIES
I Laughed...so many times
I was emotional, a lot
I was stumped on occasion
I loved every minute of reading it
I was blown away by the ending
This was everything and wanted it to be and so much more. The Andrews have done it again and surpassed every expectation I had. This was better than I hoped for and my hopes were HIGH
Full review to Come.
Thank you to the Andrews for letting me be involved with the beta read of their final book for the Kate Daniels Series. I am honored.
Ilona Andrews just released the first two chapters of this book (unedited) on their website here!
Except, now the torture of waiting is worse......
Some of us are not getting any younger over here.
Ilona Andrews probably could have written Kate Daniels books for another 10 years and made a fortune. They are wildly successful and even after 10 books, fans love them every bit as much as they did years ago... if not more. I know I do. But that makes it all the more impressive that they decided to end this series on top. They finished Kate’s story and they did it in spectacular fashion, giving me everything I wanted and needed from an epic conclusion. I can’t imagine the kind of pressure they were under to satisfy their readers with Kate’s swan song, but somehow, they pulled it off with their trademark blend of humor, action, and heart.
There are so many things that make this book awesome, but the clearest front-runner is an adorable, fascinating, and powerful one year-old named Conlan Lennart. That’s right, Kate and Curran’s baby is born in the prologue and we scoot ahead in time a bit for the bulk of this book. It was a brilliant move, because Conlan has grown enough to feel like a real character here. He is clearly smart and extremely gifted with magic, but at the end of the day he is also a toddler that loves his mommy and daddy. And man, do they love him too.
You think love for her husband and her friends motivated Kate? Just watch out for this mama bear protecting her cub.
I really thought this book was going to be all about Kate's big face off with her father. And that is part of the story, but far from the only conflict. I’ll stop here and say if you have not read Iron and Magic, Hugh's book, go back and read it now before you jump in here. The events of that story are vitally important to this one. Because those bad guys? They’re going to look awfully familiar. Only here, we are finally understanding their origins and their goals. It is the biggest and baddest force that Kate has ever had to fight. And she knows that she still must deal with her dad and his eminent attack on her and her son. So much is happening.
And that means calling in all of the big players. From the family of her heart like Julie and Derek... to the ties of her blood, like Erra and Rowena... to her allies: the Pack, the People, even Atlanta herself. And then there are the men who were basically like estranged brothers, Nick and Hugh. They know better than anyone what kind of foe Roland is. Saiman, Roman, Christopher, Teddy Jo. The list just goes on and on. And they all matter to the story. They all have a part to play, and for long-time readers of this series, it is so gratifying to see all of these pieces come together in this amazing tapestry.
I laughed out loud. I cheered out loud too. But even as I approached the last two chapters, I kept wondering how the authors were going to manage to make everything work out in the end. And I don’t know why I even questioned it, because they have never let me down and they certainly did not start here.
I couldn’t be happier with Kate’s HEA. And I love that they have dangling threads which will allow them to return to this world in the future with stories centered on other characters. I definitely will continue with Hugh’s books and I feel total confidence in a future series for Julie. All the dominoes are set up just right.
I will miss this series terribly, but I am so grateful that I got to see it go out with the kind of quality story it deserved. Thank you, Ilona Andrews for bringing this world to life... and for letting me love Kate Daniels.

1st Read - July 2018
2nd Read - August 2018
Holy shit, first I get approved for Archangel's Prophecy (which I already started reading!) and then I get Magic Triumphs!!!!!! The excitement of this weekend's reading may just kill me LOL
Update from the newest snippet(21/09/2017)
(Snippet can be found here: Snippet
Conlan grinned at me. He had my dark hair and Curran’s grey eyes. He also had Curran’s sense of humor, which was driving me crazy. Conlan started walking early, at ten months, which was typical of shapeshifter children, and now he was running at full speed. His favorite games included running away from me, hiding under various pieces of furniture, and knocking stuff off horizontal surfaces. Bonus points if the object broke. Oh man, I love that kid already. I want to see Conlan interact with so many people - starting with Curran, through Derek to Roland.
Kate and Curran's child has a name! Snippet here
We have a cover! And a synopsis. Does anyone else have chills?
We have a snippet!!! (Are Kate and Curran really talking about their kid eating raw meat and mice? Is there a time jump before the last book? If so, how big?)
Ilona just posted soundtrack they listen to while writing Magic Triumphs. It includes songs called Two Steps From Hell and Epic Persian Battle Music. I hear words "hell", "epic", "battle" and all I can see is Kate kicking Roland's ass.
Ilona and Gordon did an interview with Cosmopolitan. My favorite part:
Ilona: We don’t really veto each other — we discuss. For example, today we were discussing names for a baby [in one of our series] and Gordon picked one that was really nice but was very close to [another character’s name]. We talked about it and I was like, “Well, I like the name, but it’s too close.”Anyone else curious about the name?
By the way, if you want to read the full interview, you can find it here.
It has a name! Magic Triumphs. That sounds optimistic. I mean, you can't name a book Magic Triumphs and then have one of the main characters die... RIGHT?!
Update from Ilona Andrews Facebook page (16/02/2017):
*Kate 10 Release Date*
We are looking at May of 2018. Before you scream, here are the reasons why:
*We’re pretty fried and we want to write a good book.
*We have two new books coming out this year, which means a lot of additional publicity, and we want to be there for important things such as our youngest – hopefully – graduating from high school. Knocked on wood and spat over my shoulder just now. When your kid tells you, “I want to do IB,” and you say “Okay,” you don’t realize exactly how much work IB courses are. She has a 4.4 GPA but so much stress.
*It takes about 6 months from turning in the first draft for the editorial process and printing process to happen, and the 2017 is already scheduled, so if we forced a book in at the end of the year, we’d be taking away marketing from someone else. A little more on the way it works: publishers have a monthly budget. They can only put out X number of releases per month, otherwise books conflict with each other and releases from other publishers. There is only so much retail space. It’s similar to the movie business. If there are too many similar movies, they eat into each other’s profits and publicity, because there are only so many movie screens. The first solid opening they have is May 2017, where we wouldn’t conflict with Patty or Anne Bishop. We don’t want to compete with other Ace authors.
*But the main reason for the delay is that Kate and Curran have fundamentally changed. There was Kate, then Kate and Curran, and now there is Kate, Curran, and a baby. What powers will the baby have? How will he affect things? We have to figure all this out and it takes time for things to line up. We’ve got the first couple of baby scenes and they are funny, but nothing concrete yet.
