A “Scrumptious” Peek at Ilona Andrews’s Magic Rises

Magic Rises by Ilona AndrewsIlona Andrews's Kate Daniels novel Magic Rises won't be released until July 30, but Andrews's website offers a tiny peek entitled “Scrumptious":

I stood on the deck of the Rush , smelling the salty, ocean- saturated air, and watched our supplies being loaded. The sailors on the ship at the next pier watched also. They had a crane. We had Eduardo Ortego, who picked up five-hundred-pound containers and casually tossed them onto the deck, where Mahon and Curran caught them and lowered them into the cargo hold.

The human sailors were looking a little sick. I was glad Eduardo was coming with us. Mahon had chosen the massive werebuffalo as his backup and nobody objected.

A woman came down the pier, heading for the ship. She walked with an easy, lazy grace that spoke of strength and perfect balance, despite the dangerously tall heels of her black leather boots. Shapeshifter walk. Always a dead giveaway.

Read the rest at Ilona Andrews's website!

Another winner. I can't wait for Kate and Curran to take center stage again.

Squee! Can't wait for this release. I even got my husband hooked on the series - makes sense since he's a huge Dresden fan.
