In a little under 2 weeks, July 30 to be exact, the 6th book in my favorite UF series will be released: Magic Rises (Kate Daniels #6) by Ilona Andrews.
Phenomenal world-building, fascinating magic system, kickass action, wonderful characters and sparkling humor throughout, this is my go-to series to reread when I need an escape from the real world.
This time around, Kate, Curran and company are going on a trip. We've spent 5 books (plus a spinoff) around Atlanta. I'm really looking forward to what the magic shifts have done to other parts of the world. Of course, I'm also really looking forward to the next baddie and to see what Hugh will bring to the party.
Yeah, I get a little ambitious sometimes. My dreams of Pinterest glory cruelly eclipsed by the simple fact that I can't draw for shit. I barely make it past stick figures on paper.
I had a feeling things would not go my way as I piped the neon orange frosting onto the skeletal body. The red sprinkle eyes were a vain attempt to salvage something of a bloodthirsty monster in cookie form. Alas, it was not meant to be.

is learning restraint.
I think I also might be too old to enjoy neon frosting. I really did not want to eat it.
However, both kids had lots of fun, and even ate some of the cookies. All of their chaos was confined to one table and I got the seal of approval.
Things rarely go according to plan for Kate, and if at the end of the day, she can settle in at home with a cold one, it is a good day.
So I will await the release of Magic Rises with a glass of this:
