Ilona Andrews - Mágikus ​találkozás
A ​varázslattal teli Perem, ahol Rose Drayton él, két világ határán terül el. Rose átjár dolgozni a Töredékbe, ahol az emberek autókon járnak, plázákban vásárolnak, és ahol a varázslat nem több puszta tündérmesénél. A másik világ Mágia, amelyet kékvérű arisztokraták irányítanak, és ahol a varázslat mindennapos, sőt megváltoztathatja az emberek sorsát. Ahogy a többi perembéli is, Rose átjárhat mindkét világba, de mindenhol törvényen kívülinek számít. Rose úgy gondolta, ha tökélyre fejleszti a varázserejét, jobb életet biztosíthat magának. De a dolgok nem a tervei szerint alakultak. Most feketén, éhbérért dolgozik a Töredékben, hogy felnevelhesse két kisöccsét, ráadásul meg kell küzdenie a kéretlen kérők hadával, akik őt és a varázserejét akarják. Ekkor toppan be az életébe Lord Declan Camarine, a mágiai kékvérű, aki szintén elhatározza, hogy megszerzi magának a lányt. És vele egy időben érkezik a különös, varázslatra éhes teremtmények egész hada. Rose-nak és a kékvérűnek össze kell fognia a szörnyű lények és megteremtőjük ellen, különben odalesz az egész Perem, és mindenki aki ott él…

Kate ​Daniels az Atlanta városában előforduló paranormális problémák felgöngyölítésével megbízott zsoldosként tengeti napjait. A szókimondó lány ereiben is mágia csordogál, de ő jobban bízik a kardja erejében. Ő maga is bármikor célponttá válhat, de nem futamodik meg a kihívás elől. Amikor azonban Kate gyámját meggyilkolják, válaszút elé kerül: vagy megvárja biztonságban, amíg elcsitulnak a kedélyek, vagy a természetfeletti gyilkos nyomába ered. Kate az utóbbit választja, így akarata ellenére belekeveredik Atlanta két legerősebb természetfeletti körének hatalmi harcába. Az egyik oldal a vámpírokat irányító Halottidézők. A másik a Falka, az alakváltók félkatonai klánja. És mindkét fél azt akarja, hogy Kate találja meg a gyilkost. A New York Times sikerszerzője, Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels világának megismerésére hívja az olvasót a sorozat első kötetében.

So when Atlanta’s premier Master of the Dead calls to ask for help with a vampire on the loose, Kate leaps at the chance of some paying work. Turns out this is not an isolated incident, and Kate needs to get to the bottom of it—fast, or the city and everyone dear to her might pay the ultimate price . . .

And now, something with wicked claws and deepwater teeth has begun to hunt at night....Feeling responsible for her neighbors, Dina decides to get involved.
