Welcome to 30 Days of Must Read Authors! Every day throughout June one of our VIPers (Jenn, Susan Or Melanie) with occasional comments from the others will present one of their favorite authors and the series or series' they recommend! Hopefully you will find some new books and new authors to love!Why people should read
Day 15 - Ilona Andrews - From Susan
Author name: Ilona Andrews
Genre(s) they write: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
How I found the author: Saw a quote online with Kate saying to Curran "Here Kitty Kitty" and I was sold!!! LOL
Why people should read: Both the Kate Daniel's world and the Hidden Legacy series are packed with humour, drama, romance, kick ass women and swoon worthy men!
Recommended Series 1. Kate Daniels World
I love this fresh take on shifters and magic, and the evolution of the characters within the pages. Kate starts off a pretty much a loner, hiding from herself, and her blood legacy. But that all changes when she meets Curran, the beast lord of the Atlanta shifters, and she gets dragged into things she really wanted to stay away from.
These books will make you laugh out loud at some scenes, cry at others, fist pump at the victories, and feel sadness at the losses. All the spin off books slot in seamlessly, and the novella's, and I am really enjoying revisiting Kate's story with the new Wilmington years books that have just come out.
Recommended Series 2. Hidden Legacy Series
Contrary to what Mel says below, you HAVE to read these books in order with the OG series first, then the spin off series. The first series delves deep into the lore and how the magic works and while they do go into it in the spin off, it all makes more sense when you read from the start. Plus, you get to see how the Baylor family started out and started to move more in Prime circles. And then there's Connor "Mad" Rogan, who Mel would really like because to him, he does not see the problem with hurting someone to get the outcome her desires LOL
Conclusion: If you like a little humour with your paranormal romance and action, then definitely check out either of these series. I mean, it's not everyone that would be brave enough to say to a lion shifter, here Kitty Kitty, right?
I read one of hers when Susan and I did a joint review. The publisher said I didn't need to read the rest of the series first, Susan disagreed but I read it anyway. It was OK. I kinda figured most of it out but it wasn't bad. I personally just didn't like her style as much as some others but to be fair I DID start on a random book.
