Kate has come a long way from her origins as a loner taking care of paranormal problems in post-Shift Atlanta. She’s made friends and enemies. She’s found love and started a family with Curran Lennart, the former Beast Lord. But her magic is too strong for the power players of the world to let her be.
Kate and her father, Roland, currently have an uneasy truce, but when he starts testing her defenses again, she knows that sooner or later, a confrontation is inevitable. The Witch Oracle has begun seeing visions of blood, fire, and human bones. And when a mysterious box is delivered to Kate’s doorstep, a threat of war from the ancient enemy who nearly destroyed her family, she knows their time is up.
Kate Daniels sees no other choice but to combine forces with the unlikeliest of allies. She knows betrayal is inevitable. She knows she may not survive the coming battle. But she has to try.
For her child.
For the world.

Heather D says
Love the cover. Can’t wait for this. I don’t want it to end.
wow – is there a release date? – and I like the cover which is not always the case 🙂
Ok seeing further down 8th of May on Amazon is that confirmed?
Silvia Herrera says
Nice cover…can’t wait ❤
I like this cover! So excited for baby Currate. or is it Katurran?
I have goosebumps!!!! So excited!
Just got goosebumps
Absolutely love it and can’t wait. I have no doubt you two will knock it out of the park again. Thank you!
Amy McDonald says
I so love the cover! I can’t wait for this book, I love the Kate Daniels series!!
Geez, a great teaser that now has a waiting inpatiently.
Tricia P says
So excited!!! Can’t wait!!
Carolyn W. says
Love the cover!
Kim Sluss says
Ditto – Oh, yeah.
Colleen Hodge says
I can’t wait
Love the cover! She is the perfect Kate.
Ocher Velvet says
Who could be that unlikeliest of allies? Could it be Hugh D’Ambray? Oh, I hope it’s Hugh! I can hardly wait! Thank you, Ilona Andrews, for creating this world and these characters, which have given me so much pleasure.
Hugh and his new bride ? Elara come to help Kate and Curran with their final battle ahainst Roland.
Info was in an interview on H&H website last July ?
Victoria (aka zEmfIrKa) says
Aah! Gorgeous. Can’t wait. This will be epic.
O.M.G. I can’t wait!!!!!
Love it and can’t wait! Thank you for sharing it with us!
So…. now we get the first chapter, right? :p
This Kate looks so badasss and I love it. My favorite covers have been from Magic RISES and onwards. I love how each of the later covers has a color theme (rises is orange/fire, breaks is snow/white, shifts is green, Binds is red, and now triumphs is smoke/black/grey.).
Who is the cover artist?!? Whoever it is, please convey my admiration to the cover artist (I assume it’s the same artist because the later books have similar artistic styles). Y’all should get her/him to redo the covers for the first five books. 🙂
Pamela Boynton says
I was just going through it all again on a long trip. This is so welcome! Love the character, the books – the short stories that fill in details!
Shlomi Harif says
Woo hoo: a cover and teaser too! Thanks, guys!
Great cover. Can’t wait. I adore this series!
Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait!
Where is my time machine? Where? WHERE IS IT???
Squeeee! The cover is gorgeous! Can’t wait!
It’s both something that I want desperately and yet will put off reading, because it’s the END. Aaaaaggghhhh, conflicted.
This is the best thing I’ve seen in weeks! Love this! Love your worlds!
Wow! As always, I can’t wait to read it! Awesome book cover and summary.?
Billie Dee says
And love the cover. But remember – it’s not the covers but what’s between them that we love so much! !
I LOVE this cover!! Best Kate cover yet
Lisa L says
See, now that’s what an Ilona Andrews book cover should look like. I don’t know if the model is what the authors envision for Kate, but she looks great. It’s pretty much how I see her.
OMG!! Gorgeous cover, the best one.
Ooooooohhhhh!!! AWESOME!!! ??????????
Jennifer Zamboni says
I’m so excited!
The last three lines in that blurb literally gave me the chills. In a good way.
Claire M says
I love it!!! It’s beautiful! And the description? Goosebumps! So excited for this book, and yet I don’t want it to end! Here’s hoping for many spin off books to come 🙂
Great cover! The model looks badass enough to be Kate. The sword is appropriately menacing, too.
The teaser is tantalizing. Time to go back over the snippets on the blog to help with the wait.
This made my night!! Cannot wait to read the final chapters of Kate Daniels❤❤
Bad ass cover as always! Lovin’ it! Yay!
The cover and blurb are fierce. Can’t wait for the real thing.
Same here. Love this series but then I enjoy everything you have written.
Is the Djinn coming back?? Oh wow… Can’t wait! Although, High’s story will ease the pain somewhat!
When is hugh’ s book out?
More likely a re-appearance of the threat that took out most of Erra’s family and set her and her brother on the vengeance trip which ultimately unhinged Roland.
So Kate making common cause with Hugh & Roland??
And yes when will Hugh’s book be out? What happened with the intention to serialise it on this site a la Inkeeper?
They thought about serializing it, but too x rated for children to read
Ohh, yeah. Good point, I’d forgotten about that plotline.
It looks amazing!! Can’t wait to read it.
Rowan Eden says
I am so excited! Sad, but excited may be more accurate. I love this series and have read it at least ten times. I know all things must come to an end but this one will be hard. Despite that melancholy tone I am bursting at the seams to read this! Thank you for my favorite series of all time.
Owww looks good ?
Looking forward to the new book
Saw the announcement on Amazon last night (no cover picture).
Darn. May 8th is a long wait.
But it will be worth it!
Thanks. (We don’t tell you two that often enough.)
Ms. Kim says
May 8th !!!!!!!
Hmm think my husband would be upset if I wanted to skip our 25th anniversary so I could spend the day reading Magic Triumphs?? lol Thanks for the anniversary gift!
Got chills reading and seeing This! Can not wait!!!
…… I NEED THIS BOOK!
That cover! That blurb!
My heart can’t take this Ç___Ç
Elena Murphy says
Favorite cover so far. As my kids would say, “Savage!” Only it actually is. I know it’s obviously intentional but I love the pics of the lion in the backgrounds. It’s a great way to tie Curran in without making it a couples cover in the traditional way and I’ve always liked the idea.
Ms. Kim says
Same here. Finally a savage Curran picture instead of wise and noble (which just didn’t capture him)
Fan in California says
GREAT cover!! Of course, I was already looking forward to reading the book but this just ratchets up the anticipation and excitement level!! Thanks for sharing!!!
Wow!! A fabulous cover and a date next May??
Ms. Kim says
May is too far away! Waail !
Thank you thank you thank you!!!!! I love this series and re listen to the entire thing every few months. I listen to Magic Binds every other month cause I miss these characters so much. Kate and Curran are relationship goals and I can’t wait to see them as parents.
That is one AWESOME cover!!
Ok, pre-ordered. I get the message… 😉 I can’t wait!!!
Wham bam cover!!! Awesome, savage, really really cool, my favorite of the whole serie!
Great summary too.
As everyone else, I’m sitting on the edge of my seat…
Anna levina says
Awesome cover! See we dont always hate the cover
LOL. I was thinking that when I read the comments.
Ms. Kim says
Badass cover ? The blurb is making me nervous though… please don’t become George R. R. Martin ?
Jean-ann Stump says
WOW! I can’t wait.
Holy Shit. Usually I’m all “Oh, that’s a nice cover.” This one I flat out love.
Awesome cover! May 2018 is a long time to wait. Does that mean that Hugh’s story will come out earlier?
Bravo to the author lords!
Hugh’s is supposed to be out in Nov I believe. Though I can’t preorder it yet.
Looks good, sounds great!
I think this is the best cover yet! A++ for Cover!!!! Can’t wait!
Wow. So many issues to look forward to. Or deal with. The blurb definitely causes anxiety, but I believe in Ilona. After ten books, there has to be an HEA. However, the road to that end may be paved with pain. This definitely makes the waiting more difficult. Gulp.
Wow, that looks and sounds amazing! Can’t wait and dreading the final book all at the same time……:)
Amazing cover, I absolutely love it! And the blurb, OMG, it will be a long long writing….
I can’t wait. Love this series!!!’
Saw this in my FB feed this am. Now THAT’S SOME COVER! Like others have stated, I am so excited to see this coming but really sad to see the end of the series. I’ll just have to reread them all once a year to get my fix. The cover blurb is really well done, too. Now, for next year, get Avon to OK another book in the Hidden Legacy series and have them work up a really great cover. And, while they’re at it, redo the covers and reprint the last 3 books. Just sayin’.
I love the cover! I think it is my favorite kate daniels cover now, thank you for sharing!
Kate Y says
So exciting! *squeee*
Love the different book cover! How they have developed from the first is marvelous to see. Of course, now I want to read it immediately.
Great cover love the photo, love the red font Especially the M in magic.Cannot wait to read next year. .
Can’t wait for the baby, and Julie’s and Curran,s and Andrea’s and Kate’s reactions And Roland !!!
Just so excited and sad at the same time so invested in the series and the characters . They are extended family, and Grendel and Jim and Dali and George and Christopher and Derek and just so many fabulous real people I don’t want to lose any of them. Even Cuddles. Thank you for this marvelous world.
It’s already been said, but this cover!!! So gorgeous! The blurb has me on pins and needles waiting – and I already was excited. Can’t wait!
Love the cover! So excited!
Patricia Schlorke says
Yummy cover…..suspenseful blurb. Ok, now must pre-order tonight.
Ms. Kim says
Finally a cover as good as the “Magic Rises” cover.
brilliant and as others have said, very sad to see the ending but what a fantastic journey and one we all have re-read multiple times – thank you so very much!!!
Love the cover! Like everyone else I can’t wait for the book!
Tina Black says
Not Ready! Not Ready! Too soon! Too soon!
I second that!!
Love the cover, love the blurb, pre-ordered the book! Thank you 🙂
What a big surprise! I wasn’t expecting a cover reveal, but now the waiting time officially begins ?
And it’s the last book, at least with Kate’s POV ?
That is a beautiful cover! I am torn over this book. On one hand, I can’t wait for it to come out. On the other, I’m sad its the last (main) book. You guys are amazing authors.
Wow! Amazing cover and intro ?
Looking forward, but with a touch of sadness, to this book ?
I’m so excited to read this book. At the same time I’m sad since it will be the last Kate Daniels book. May 8th can’t come soon enough.
THANK U for so much trouble, NEVER NEVER stop writing, a lots of love from MEXICO
So looking forward to this. And the cover is amazing!
Gorgeous cover, fabulous tease of a blurb. So many ancient powers to choose from – I wonder which one has it in for Kate et. al.? May can’t come soon enough for me!
That’s my favourite cover of the series, hands down. Love it! 😀
The date is also great – over two months earlier than I expected. ^_^
But the price Amazon shows me at the moment is $28,29 for a Kindle version o.O, so I’ll have to wait with pre-ordering for a bit;)
They don’t charge you until the order is fulfilled, so it wouldn’t hit until May 8th. And then you usually get an email saying the price at the time you pre-ordered was lowered at the time of fulfillment. At least, that happened with the last couple of books, although I don’t remember if it was Kindle and paper or just paper (I get both).
Surely that can’t be right ?
Kindle version is £10.99 here in the U.K.
Could that be the printed book price?
So far haven’t found the printed book for preorder here yet?
Kindle version here in US is $12.99, hardcover is $26.00. Prices I’m willing to pay for these authors.
This cover is beautiful and the best in the series, IMO. The blurb is even better.
Getting excited for this book!
The hardcover is even Amazon Smile eligible, if you participate in that.
I think I still like some of the European covers better, but of the American covers, this is definitely one of the top two. I can’t keep the titles straight, but there was one other cover I really liked, except it had Curran as a golden lion and that’s not how he’s described in the books. This one has probably the best Curran yet. I like the Kate model, too.
Thank you for this. Had some sad news today and you made it a little better…
Earle davis says
Great promo, it’s going to be another great book. Of course it means that we’re getting near the end of the series, and that makes me sad.
I hope we will see the finish of the other storylines.
This is the last book as far as I know. Am I wrong?
Last told from Kate’s perspective. Not last in the Kate universe, from what Ilona has said in the past.
Fantastic cover! And omg omg omg… that story promo…!!!!!
Soo cool! ?
I think the cover and this model are just beautiful!! So looking forward to this book!!
Thank you for sharing today!!??
Love the cover and the book promo. Wow can hardly wait.
Beautiful cover and powerful text.
I love the cover and promo I can picture Kate this way strong but beautiful too
Love it! So excited for this one…and so sad too because it’s the end.
Unlikely allies who will betray her combined with saving the world… I wonder if the Morrigan appears again.
oh my.. sounds even better than the last one
I love the maturation of urban fantasy that we can have a (bestselling) heroine who actually gets pregnant as a natural evolution of her character. Cause frankly, for years (is it decades yet?) there was a lot of sex with no bambinos…..
Jennifer Wheaton says
Awesome! Love the cover! I have loved watching this character evolve and grow!!! I am a fan of all your series but I think Kate will always be my favorite! The cliff hangers have gotten bad though! You all are given me anxiety between books! (jk)
Deb in PA says
Omar Mtz says
The promo gave me anxiety, the cover looks awesome!!!
Also, by ancient enemy are we referring to her dad, or by family to her bloodline? if the case of the bloodline, wasn’t those enemies all slaughtered. This is where my mind went with that promo.
Can’t wait to read it.
Earle davis says
Could be the Djinn, who are some small part of her family long ago in the past.
The cover blurb says: “Kate and her father, Roland, currently have an uneasy truce, but when he starts testing her defenses again, she knows that sooner or later a confrontation is inevitable”, then, about the ancient enemy it says this, “a threat of war from the ancient enemy who nearly destroyed her family, she knows their time is up.”
So adding “a confrontation is inevitable” to “their time is up”, I believe the “ancient enemy” is Roland.
Oooo, like perhaps he’s worse than even Erra knew? Now that’s a thought…
You broke the cover curse! Well done! And the blurb is fabulous, so looking forward to the book. Even better is the Hugh book before, as an encore, and then the Kate grand finale!
Pat Sciarini says
Gorgeous cover! And ancient enemy? Hugh maybe? Thank you for all that you are!
This cover is so beautiful!
Great cover! I too am looking forward to the grand finale of the Kate vs Roland story arc though I am sure there will be plenty of opportunities in the future for stories set ” in the world of Kate Daniels” and featuring some of the characters we have come to love. Congratulations on breaking the cover curse.
Might just be the best KD cover yet. I like.
Suzette M. says
Love this cover. 2018 is gonna be fantastic.
Woot! That’s a beautiful cover. Can’t wait.
Sallie Rork says
Best. Cover. EVER!!!!!!! Kate, just as I invisioned – just wow.
Gorgeous cover! The story promo gives me chills…
Right now, I am sitting on the patio at a resort on Treasure Island, Florida. The sun just set and the sky is awash with brilliant color. As much as I am enjoying my time here, I do not have the words to tell you how excited I am about this book. Or any book you share with us. Waiting sorta patiently.
BlondieB (Kathy from Aus) says
Love love love love the cover now I’m waiting waiting waiting for the book book book lol xxx
I love the cover!
Both beautiful and awesome!
Susan Linch Ravan says
Awesome cover, can’t wait for the book, but it’ll be sad that it’s the last one. Author Lords, thanks for one heck of a ride!
Looks great but short of having the president on the cover, I’m gonna pre-order the shit out of anything you write.
Is it sad that although I understand the weave towards the happy, fulfilled family life story arc, I don’t really want her to have a kid? At least, not quite as early in the final book as it’s going to happen. There’s way more angst than I can handle when a pregnancy or a new born child is involved.
That’s a passive regret though and with that said…. Eeeeeeeeeee, I can’t wait!!!!
Amy Ann says
Fantastic cover art. Incredible cover copy. You all struck gold with this one. Kate looks resolute, fierce and ready to kick a**. You can see how she has come into her own. Can’t wait for the book!
is the ancient enemy, the djinn? Wonderful cover.
Holy crap!!! This cover is so good!!! And so is the write up!!!! Squeee!!!! I’m very excited for this next novel. I’m also apprehensive. I want all the wonderful characters I have come to love to be ok. Oh goodness!! Thanks for sharing the cover it’s filled with awesomeness!!!! ?
Great cover! The book description sounds great! Pre-ordered and patiently waiting. (Too busy to do otherwise! ?)
The cover is awesome!!! So excited for the book!!
Debi Majo says
I just finished re-reading the entire series and posted on FB yesterday that I miss my friends! You have made my day with this email!!! I love you guys!
Wow, just wow! This made my day and I so needed that.
I love the cover. I am sure I will love even more what’s inside.
Liz Mansfield says
It’s completely gorgeous but a part of me would love to see a little bump in that tummy ?
Whoot Whoot! Cool cover! Super excited for the new book. Currently rereading the series right now.
I hope the next book has scenes from when Kate was pregnant. She would be funny, plus it’s rare to read about a character during pregnancy. If it’s not in this book I hope you write a short story or novella of Kate running around still doing her thing while driving Curran crazy.
Please with cherry on top! ❤
I love this cover.
Ooh, this is gonna be good. Can’t wait!! Love ❤️ the cover. Thank you so much for writing the Kate series. I’ve loved every one of them and I have them on audio because I love the narrator. Xoxoxo
Jennifer C says
I got chills – the good kind!
Love this cover! And the leather jacket Kate is wearing, I want it for myself haha. I will agree with some of the other commenters that the European covers (like the French ones) are just beyond amazing though.
Ooooh this makes me so happy!!!!
And I just pre-ordered it ???
I have read this entire series. I love it. There is always something new and fresh in the books she puts out.
Question. In the new series burn for me
Is that only going to be 3 books?
I am hoping there is more to come I’m afraid I may have hooked 10 people to that series and they would like more.
Please write more in that series when u get a chance. I love the kate series to and havd told the 10 about it. They are now currently reading that feverishly.
Thanks good writing to you both.
This is a fantastic cover. I love it!
Is there a cover for the Hugh book? “Cause my imagination about that bad boy does run wild. Isn’t Hugh’s book coming out first?
I know right!?! I really want to see that cover!
Thomas Siterlet says
Cannot wait for this to be releases !!!! Am a loyal Kate Daniels / Ilona Andrews fan. Have all the KD titles.
The cover is beautiful!
Though its what’s between the covers that counts 😉
Love the cover! It has gotten me more stoked about book 10 than i already am. 🙂
Kate (NB) says
The cover is great! I think it is one of the best covers of the entire series.
I love the cover.
I wonder if it’s too early to put in now for a day off work on May 8? 😀
Fantastic cover!! I SO SO SO love this series! When is the book being released? SERIOUSLY? A Hugh book? Please tell me more!
The Hugh book started as an April Fool’s joke a few years ago then became a real thing when people started requesting their local libraries for copies, they considered doing it as a serial like the innkeeper stories but it would have too much +18 content for the website, now it is a book and I believe it is due to come out before the last Kate book.
and a bonus Hugh snippet
Thanks for listing all the Hugh snippets, Amanda, a real treat to reread them all again ?
It’s fun to reread. I can’t wait for the book. 😀
I think there’s at least one missing from that list though – I remember one where Elara tells a little girl that Hugh will protect them because that’s what he does and he stares at her, but I couldn’t find it on search.
I remember that one too, Amanda, we will have to search for it…shame to miss it from your great collection ?
Can’t find the one with the little girl,but found another one. Dangerous things in the woods
I went to search and click on Hugh d’Ambray.
Sorry couldn’t get direct link to work ??
Just remembered where it is –
It’s in “pre packing day’ the AMA that appears on Reddit….
It’s still there ?
when i saw the email, i only read Magic Triumphs Cover Reveal and then immediately looked for links. didn’t even hesitate in preordering it. cannot wait.
Pilates lady says
YAY! The Kate Daniels series was my first introduction to urban fantasy. I only read suspense. It has been a wild ride from the first book. I read everything by Ilona’s Andrews, and others Ilona’s has recommended. Can’t wait for the new Kate. I may start to ‘re-read the entire series. Loved Wildfire!
Beautiful cover! Now I am going to pointlessly fuss over Kate’s sword, isn’t it supposed to be a Shashka? Thank you for your hard work.
Stunning cover! They just keep getting better and better! Can’t wait to read it!
The best cover!
Dawn Page says
I adore that leather jacket. Great cover!
Reading the blurb gave me goose pimples. Can’t wait!
i hope to see a lot of hugh here, i actually like him and his interactions with kate. would you consider making a spin-off for him?
There is going to be a Hugh book coming out. Started out as an April Fool’s joke then took on a life of its own
I love the cover, but I also had a completely silly thought… Maybe we need a lion cub now, too? =)
I don’t usually comment on covers unless I’m joking but this one is really nice. I like it quite a bit. Great job.
Just preordered the hardback edition on Amazon UK – the cover shown is awful – I hope they put a jacket cover on it the same as the cover here! ?
Previously preordered the Kindle addition- that doesn’t show a cover at all ? Which gives me hope for the amazing cover here ?
This amazing cover is now up on amazon’s UK ?? site….looks great ?
Great cover. But…do you guys ever sleep?? The books keep coming (thank you VERY much) you travel on business related trips, have some sort of brief vacations. I know you have kids. They seem to be surviving nicely. Holy cow! How do you do all this??
Absolutely love the cover. It is perfect.
However, now I am wondering now that Hidden Legacy has ended (supposedly) and this is the last book for Kate Daniels.
Whatcha guys gonna do now?
Got a new series brewing in the back of your fabulous minds? Hmmmm.
We all hope there will be more Hidden Legacy, Sweep and Hugh books.
BUT!!!!! If this is the end of Kate and Curran what will the new series be?
Love the cover! Why can the Hidden Legacies covers be as awesome? At least give Conor a shirt! ( Not that I’m blaming the author lords. We all know you have no say in the matter) Super excited for this book! If you wrote fifty of them, I would read them all!
OMG!!!!!! I’m so flipping excited I cant wait…
‘Kate Daniels sees no other choice but to combine forces with the unlikeliest of allies. She knows betrayal is inevitable.’
Ooh. Is it going to be Roland? Will he betray her? Too many questions in my mind now. Too many theories.
Thank you for your awesome books. I just know this is going to be brilliant. Just like you guys are.
I tend to lurk on the web and this is my first time posting on your blog. I would like to add to the clamoring for more Hidden Legacy and Innkeeper books – there are far too many unanswered questions for these to be done! I would be happy for more Kate Daniels books but after 10 I can understand if you want to move on. I have enjoyed the world-building and character growth. I am hoping for more in the Gray Wolf series with Derek and Julie. This blog is the first I have heard of the Hugh book, I hope it is not an April Fool’s joke and is a real thing. I have all your books and have recommended them to friends. I have read all of them several times, and often read the short stories when I want something good but short and complete before sleep. Since I have never posted here before I want to take this opportunity to shamelessly gush, flatter, thank you, and beg for more. You are 2 of my favorite authors, please keep the stories flowing!
BTW I too used the link on the Magic Triumphs cover reveal page to immediately pre-order ! 🙂
Woo hoo! Got my pre-order in. Beautiful cover and a very tantalizing blurb.
Cindy M. says
Did the cover model change? Not a criticism in any way. She just looks different.
love this cover! Badass! and this is what I can really imagine what Kate looks like!
Kat from Australia says
EEEEEE! SO EXCITED! 😀 Thank you, Author Gods!
Belle Singapore says
Awesome cover! Just the cover alone has given me butterlies in my tummy! Yaay!!
Nicole Deliz says
This is, by far, the BEST cover. It’s sad to know that it will be the last, but I’m so glad that the cover will do this amazing series justice.
Nicole Deliz says
Who is the cover artist? I’d love to see more of their stuff!
I love the cover. I can NOT wait till Hugh’s book!
McKinley Anderson says
Omg!… I am so stoked about this next tale of Kate Daniels and multiclimatic life!!… The cover is AMAZING!!!…?…Ilona Andrews, YOU ROCK!!!!
Touro honda says
Are there more books in grey wolf series or is it just Magic Stars?
