Week 10 Review: Magic Stars

From Goodreads:
From award-winning author, Ilona Andrews, an original novella, set in the New York Times #1 bestselling Kate Daniels World and featuring fan-favorites, Derek, and Curran and Kate's very independent ward, Julie. 

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 several of 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.

My Review:
I loved this novella! It was awesome to have Derek narrating, and that Julie was also in this book was just fantastic! It is a tad darker than the Kate Daniels series, but Derek's is a different person with different experiences that he keeps surviving. Yeah.

I loved the depth of this book-it was only 60 pages, but it put a lot into it! Like the case that arrives, fighting  and killing bad guys, beating up idiots, Derek's dreamy stare of not women, but bacon. Yeah. this book was really fantastic!

And it was mentioned that Julie was learning under Roland, stuff about incantors, and what Roland did to Hugh. Oh, and that Julie knows about Kate's ability to make Julie do what she wants, even if she avoids using it.

And the two revelations in this book-that Derek is claimed by another, and that Julie liked what she did to the bad guy-which she told to Roland, most likely, on their property. Which does not sound good for the next Kate book!

Such a fantastic novella, really enjoyed it, and I want more Gray Wolf books!
