Magic Stars (Grey Wolf) (Volume 1)

From award-winning author, Ilona Andrews, an original novella, set in the NYT #1 bestselling Kate Daniels World and featuring fan-favorites Derek and Julie, Curran and Kate’s very independent ward. Scarred, solitary Derek Gaunt has separated from his Pack, and is truly a lone wolf. With no family he answers to no one; but is fiercely loyal to a chosen few. So, when those close to him are murdered, he’ll stop at nothing to hunt their killer through the magic-drenched streets of Atlanta. Never one to be left on the sidelines, equally determined— some might say stubborn— Julie Lennart-Olsen soon joins in his pursuit; and what began as revenge turns into a race to save the city. Their search pits them against powers they never imagined and magic so old, it predates history. It may cost Derek his life, but there are things for which even he would risk everything. “Derek’s novella was everything I wanted it to be and more! I wasn’t expecting any major reveals but I should have known better. This is an Ilona Andrews novella after all. I am dying to see how what we learned here plays out in the rest of the series!” —Rose Red from Goldilox and the Three Weres “Ilona Andrews pens my favorite flavor of keeper novel: tough characters, marvelous voice, fast-paced with that sharp edge of humor that adds the final grace note.” —Patricia Briggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fire Touched “One of the brightest voices in urban fantasy. Ilona Andrews delivers only the best.” —Jeaniene Frost, New York Times bestselling author of Bound by Flames

  1. Do NOT skip this one I know a lot of people skip novellas. That’s ok. Most of them are just fun pieces of fluff that help us curb our appetites for our favorite series. They rarely impart anything vital. But trust me when I tell you that you don’t want to skip this one. Not just because it’s Derek, though, obviously you want more Derek. But as much as I love digging around in his head, it’s Julie’s thread in this story that you don’t want to miss. 

  2. Teenagers No More This 64 page novella is a spin-off of the Kate Daniels series. Fans of that series will REALLY enjoy this read, as it about two of the favorite characters – Julie, Kate’s ward and Derek, a member of Curran’s immediate staff. 

  3. Julie needs her own series. This novella from Ilona Andrews (#8.5 in the ‘Kate Daniels’ universe) was made available to purchase today, I read it in an hour and now I just have to share my thoughts because, … I think this is one of my favourite pieces of writing from Ilona Andrews. Like, ever.
