The August Book Pick is...

When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.

Kate Daniels is a down-on-her-luck mercenary who makes her living cleaning up these magical problems. But when Kate's guardian is murdered, her quest for justice draws her into a power struggle between two strong factions within Atlanta's magic circles.

The Masters of the Dead, necromancers who can control vampires, and the Pack, a paramilitary clan of shapechangers, blame each other for a series of bizarre killings—and the death of Kate's guardian may be part of the same mystery. Pressured by both sides to find the killer, Kate realizes she's way out of her league—but she wouldn't have it any other way…

Phew. This was a close month! Magic Bites and Side Effects May Vary had the same amount of votes twice in a row, with only one final (slightly late but still counted) vote to separate them. Ilona Andrews' book literally won by one vote :). It makes me so happy to see so many readers out there passionate about wanting to experience these books!

Still, this book won fair and square. So we'll be reading Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews in August.

You can find the book on Amazon Kindle for $5.99, but it's an older book so it's also out in Mass Market Paperback, and on audio. Your local library should have a copy or two, but you can also check out Abe Books for used versions. If you have the money to spend (or an Audible account) I'd highly recommend  the audio book! Renee Raudman is the narrator of these books, and she does a fantastic job. 

Keep an eye on your inboxes in the coming week for a newsletter and breakdown of this book. We'll start reading on August 4, 2014!
