Oh, Kate Daniels, how I love thee. MAGIC RISES is a wonderful addition to the series. I lost the plot in a few places (which may be due to how much happens so quickly in this book, or the fact that I finished it between the hours of 1 and 3 am), but I'm sure those hiccups will be ironed out the second time around. And oh, will there be a second time. MAGIC RISES doesn't beat out MAGIC STRIKES or MAGIC BLEEDS for series favorite, but the interactions between all of Andrews's characters is page by page gorgeous. Letting these hilarious, wonderful people run amuck in this magnificently realized magical world means this book, like all other Andrews efforts, is a treat from start to finish.
