    Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews (AFHeart)
    AFHeart: Like Dresden, the book is about a loner with parental issues who has natural powers. In the Kate Daniels series she is not used to having friends or trusting others because of her natural magic. Also like Dresden there is sexual tension but realistic, there is violence in fighting demons but it is not gory for the sake of gore. Kate Daniels books have more world building.… (more)

Murphy completely ruined this book for me. ( )

Review originally posted on Goodreads.

I've been told the books get better... they're not bad at the moment, but wow are some of the characters infuriating at times! ( )
  apollymipanthos | Feb 25, 2017 |
Just like in the previous book, everything that could go wrong for Harry did go wrong for Harry. A lot of things also went right for him, but I do have to wonder whether Murphy's Law hates him or loves him. It's gotta be one of those. But, it definitely made for a suspense-filled adventure, that's for sure, and I definitely don't regret picking up this book. And, once again, one of things that I enjoy most about Harry's character is just how incredibly human he is. His emotions, and emotional reactions, about things make sense and you feel them along with him. And, just like in the last book, everything got wrapped up well enough to where this adventure came to a close, to an end, and you're satisfied with it but yet there are still questions that will likely lead over into the next book and the next adventure. Great writing, great characters, great world-building and great plot. Jim Butcher spins entertaining, almost-tangible magic with these books and I couldn't be happier. ( )

better written than the first Dresden Files novel, but extremely gory and containing a completely pointless sex scene. a very quick book to read and a quick book to forget ( )

werewolves and the like are killing people. Some rogue fbi agents [who nobody knows are rogue yet] set up Harry, a Werewolf and a top mob boss to kill take the fall for the killings. Harry gets the crap beaten out of him and survives. ( )

Meh. I'm still waiting for this series to become amazing as so many have told me it is. It's entertaining enough but Harry is just so dopey and the writing is cheesy. I've read a fair amount of cheesy urban fantasy so that's saying something I think.

Could a werewolf be loose in Chicago? Common sense says no. The grisly evidence says yes. So does Harry Dresden. And with his weird connections, he should know.
