"No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: if there's trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it..."
As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers. Since Kate's connection to Roland has come out into the open, no one is safe--especially those closest to Kate.
As Roland's long shadow looms ever nearer, Kate is called to attend the Conclave, a gathering of the leaders from the various supernatural factions in Atlanta. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered there, apparently at the hands of a shapeshifter, Kate is given only twenty-four hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she'll find herself embroiled in a war which could destroy everything she holds dear...

Picking up some time after the events of Magic Rises, the 11th outing (and first hardcover) for mercenary Kate Daniels has her fighting to prevent her home territory of Atlanta from becoming a supernatural war zone. Kate’s father, the immortal warlord Roland, continues his quest for dominance over the city by sending her old enemy Hugh d’Ambray to stir things up. When one of the vampire-controlling Masters of the Dead is killed by a shape-shifter, it brings the two factions to the brink of war. Kate must hold the Pack together while her mate is out of town, find the killer, and survive feral monsters and political intrigue. Magical mayhem ensues and Kate fights for her life against overwhelming odds, leading to a newfound alliances with her foes. Character profiles, an overview of the story to date, and an additional short story ensure that existing fans will be entertained, while new readers won’t be entirely lost.
