Review: "A Questionable Client" by Ilona Andrews in Dark and Stormy Knights


If you are an Ilona Andrews fan in need of a Kate Daniels fix, you're in luck. In this impressive anthology, we finally get to see how Kate met Saiman. YES! Ever since Saiman was first introduced, and I can't remember exactly which book it was (Burns? Strikes?), I have wanted to know more about him and why he's so fixated on Kate. Not that it's that big a surprise, right?

The plot of this short story feels like a secret to me, one that I'm just dying to tell. All I'll say is that Kate is sent to him to be a bodyguard. What she finds when she gets there is something that is a stretch, even for the dynamic duo of Ilona Andrews. It's a typical Kate story and even though there's no Curran and it's too short it is still a treat.

Hi Jen! I've had my eye on this anthology for awhile. Have you read all the stories or just the Ilona Andrews story?

Just the Ilona Andrews one so far but I have started the Jim Butcher one. Might be halfway through it and I'm liking it even though it's not a Harry Dresden pov but is still in his world.

Sounds promising. Let me know what you think about the anthology as a whole when you're done with it.
