“Splendid…an edgy dark fantasy touched with just the right amount of humour.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Hello bibliophiles, Quintin Fortune here, and I, like just about everyone else on the planet, have one or two fictional/literary heroes. Characters we can identify with. Ancient ones such as Gilgamesh or Heracles, timeless ones like Elizabeth Bennet or Tom Sawyer, to even modern day ones like Spider-Man or Wonder Woman.
A new hero to add to my list is Kate Daniels, main hero of the book ‘Magic Bites’ by Ilona Andrews. Kate is a mercenary in a weird future version of Atlanta where everything switches between magic and technology.
Our story opens with Kate getting drunk (always a good way to introduce your hero) and receiving a message about the death of her Guardian, Greg. She ended up being stuck on the case by the Order, because plot convenience.
