Magic Bites, byIlona Andrews

In a world where magic and technology are at war, being a
human who can control and use magic is rare- and dead useful
if you are Kate. A mercenary who will fix your magical problems
for the right price, she has few friends and no family. When her
guardian, Greg, her father's friend and the closest thing she had
to family is mysteriously murdered, Kate is furious. He also had
the ability to control magic and way more training in use of
weapons then her; he would be a very hard man to kill. The
trouble is no one knows even what kind of being could have
inflicted the damage done. As Kate starts digging into the case
she finds more people missing and what may be a plot to throw
the magical population of the city into war.

A fast paced cross between a Whodunnit and fantasy novel. I
loved the character of tough talking Kate and the supporting
characters were great. The quick, witty banter and snappy one
liners reminded me of Joss Whedon's TV shows, and I can see a
bit of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer influence here.

4 stars,
