Blood Heir by Ilona Andrews
The self published spin off book from the Kate Daniels series "Blood Heir" comes out in 8-days. I'm going out of my mind with anticipation. Julie, now known as Aurelia, has changed a lot... So has Derek. I can't wait to see these two kids all grown up and kicking ass.
If you haven't read the Kate Daniels books you can still read this, they do a good job of summarizing things-- but it's probably more emotionally rewarding to have read the main series first.
The ebook is up for pre order, so are paperback copies.
@cobaltasaurus Okay, so I opened my library app to try and check out the Kate Daniels - there's a series, and then Ilona andrews is mixed in there too.. was one a pen name, or... ??
@macha Oh, sorry! Ilona Andrews is the author. Kate Daniels is the main character of the original series and adoptive mother of the main character from Blood Heirs.
Magic Bites is the first book from Kate's POV. I will note that when I re-read it, the writing had aged a little, but they (Ilona Andrews is actually Ilona and Andrew Gordon a husband and wife duo who write together) are amazing and have just continued to get better as the years have gone by.
@cobaltasaurus Okay then! Maybe I can suss out which one is first lol
@macha Magic Bites.
