I picked up three Ilona Andrews books last week on one of my trips to the library. This series features an alternative version of Atlanta where magic and technology switch on and off causing all sorts of havoc with the lives of the humans and other creatures who live there. Kate Daniels is a magical mercenary, a trained warrior who can be hired to eliminate a variety of problems. Andrews does a fabulous job world building and her character development is top notch as well. Not sure why this author never hit my radar before, but I'm so happy I found these books on the library shelves.
We enjoyed a great potluck/cookout with our neighbors yesterday. It is always fun to get together with them for food and conversation. The kids all enjoyed playing together, even the teens, and we wrapped up the evening with a fire in the firepit, some smores and a nice cool evening breeze.
Happy Labor Day.....the unofficial end of summer and the start of fall. Here is to nice, clear and crisp weather ahead. Cheers.
