Magic Bites, by Ilona Andrews

2.0

I made it 60% of the way through. From the beginning I felt like I was reading the second or third book in a series where I was expected to already know who all the characters were. It was like listening in on a conversation and not quite catching on to what was happening. Also, I didn't love the characters. I felt zero connection to any of them. I was hoping for something a bit like Mercy Thompson, but this wasn't it for me.

April 2020: I decided to go back and give this a second chance since I really want another good Urban fantasy series to read. I made it all the way through this time. My feelings are still a bit of a mixed bag, but I'll give the second book a shot since it's supposed to only get better from here.
