Magic Strikes

Magic Strikes -  Ilona Andrews

I've been on an urban fantasy kick and have been devouring this series.  In this book we find out more about Kate's childhood, the sexual tension increases, and Kate and crew get all gladiatorial. We also meet Dali a genius legally blind werecat. There is a lot of humor and self depreciation that runs through these books including a great opening scene, and a bit with Julie. The villains in this book is really interesting, as is the gladiatorial setting.
