Review: “A Questionable Client” (Kate Daniels #0.5) by Ilona Andrews

questionable clientThis short story takes place prior to any of the novels in the Kate Daniels urban fantasy series. However, reading this story after reading at least the first novel, Magic Bites, works best.

“A Questionable Client” tells the story of how Kate first meets one of her informational contacts, a shape-shifter called Saiman. He’s kind of a dick, but he’s a loveable dick. It also shows the very unglamorous side of her mercenary career.

One of my favorite aspects of this entire series is the use of unfamiliar monsters from mythology. This is used to excellent effect here, especially in regards to the plot’s climax.

Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Goodreads.
