    1. Reviewed by: Rabid Reads4.5 starsA few things to know in advance:1. You CANNOT skip this novella. I'm not saying that b/c love the Andrews (which I bloody well do). I'm saying that b/c at least three major events take place in this book. THREE. At least.2. We finally get in Derek's head. A lot of you have been concerned about Boy Wonder for awhile now. As the series progresses, he gets more and more withdrawn, more and more . . . cardboard. This is worrisome. We know the circumstances surroundin [...]


    2. And the moral of this reread is:① Yes, I am sticking to my 12-star rating. If I really unleashed the fangirl in me I'd probably go for 16 stars, but I'm getting desperately reasonable in my old age, so 12 stars it is.② This story is mandatory reading for anyone following this All-Hail-The-Queen-It-Doesn't-Get-Better-Than-This-Awesome-Amazing-I-Can-Die-Happy-Now series. And again, this is not the fangirl in me talking here. I'm old, wise and reasonable now, remember? You HAVE to read this sto [...]


    3. Is this the start of a new Kate Daniels spin-off?!*screams, flails, dances awkwardly*I'm seeing this listed as Kate Daniels 8.5, but, more importantly, also as Grey Wolf #1.Who's the Grey Wolf, you ask? Derek!Ok, guess who else is in this one? Never mind, don't bother guessing, I'm just going to tell you! Julie! Yes, Kate's adopted daughter, constant troublemaker, and Derek's biggest fan, also stars in this story. And while she's too young for Derek (and he knows it!), you can tell that he is be [...]


    4. IT'S OFFICIALLY OUT!!!✭✭✭✭✭ - 4.75 Bacony StarsThere are novellas in series you can skip and I’d say you aren’t missing much. I have enjoyed all of the Novella’s in the KD world, but besides a few little insights into how Kate is seen by others I didn’t take much out of them to go into main story line. Then there is Magic Stars and all that changed Boom, pow, KA-Bam in under 100 pages two characters from the KD world are fleshed out and the foundations are beautifully laid and [...]


    5. August 2016 Re-read - I need more Grey Wolf.10 December 2015: $1.99 on Kindle! - Available TODAY!I went into this novella knowing very little, except that it had potentially world-changing events within its pages. Now that I'm done - I tore through this on my (extended) lunch break today - I can definitely say that's the dead-honest truth. I've long wanted a Derek book, and I've been 'shipping Derek and Julie, hard, for a very long time (since the metal rose). To say I was excited when I realize [...]


    6. This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.When I saw that there was a new novella being released in the Kate Daniels Series, it was an absolute given that I would have to read it. I am always ready for more Kate and more Curran. Then I took another look at this book and found out that this one isn't focused on Kate or Curran and instead features Derek and Julie and I got even more excited. As soon as I saw some of my friends on posting that it was available to purchase on , I couldn [...]


    7. Kate Daniels is the most consistently satisfying urban fantasy series I've read. so, take my criticism with a grain of salt.Magic Stars, while enjoyable, just doesn't live up to it's big sister full novels. Derek the wolf is hunting down killers when he runs into Julie at the crime scene. Together, they adventure. It's all very magical with interesting creatures and lots of action, tempered by Derek's internal dialogue. However. However, the pacing feels off, going from fight to fight without mu [...]


    8. A short adventure with Curran and Kate’s loyal wolf and with their adopted daughter.This is the first book where wolf Derek Gaunt is the main character and he is an excellent one!Once he had the face of an angel and girls used to throw themselves at his feet. Now he is scarred and scary, but he is still sentimental and loyal to his friends.Julie Lennart-Olsen used to live in the streets, filthy and skinny. Kate decided to protect her. She took her home; she gave her blood and finally she adopt [...]


    9. Full review, originally posted on fantasyliterature:Magic Stars begins the new Grey Wolf series, a spin-off of Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series, in which Derek, a 20 year old shapeshifter who can turn into a wolf, takes center stage, although fans of Kate and Curran will be pleased to know that they make a brief appearance. This novella gets off to a quick jump start, with Derek on the job, tracking down a group of men who murdered an entire family. Derek’s actions when he finds these men [...]


    10. Simply put, Ilona Andrews is writing the best urban fantasy available right now, period. The Kate Daniels series is the only one in recent times I've come across that is still original and captivating. I don't usually read short stories because they usually just seem to be for the fans and not much of anything important happens. They tide the fans over until the next book comes out. This one, however, is one of the most compact, well-written shorts I've ever read. We see character development an [...]


    11. In true Andrews fashion the book was amazing. It is about 100 pages long but it felt like 10 I read it so fast. There is, surprisingly for its length, a healthy amount of world building and yet the story feels well paced. The characters are, well it's Derek and Julie, but for those of you not familiar with the books, it has just enough of a taste to be curious about Julie and an interesting glimpse into the mind of Derek. I never really wanted a Derek book but I found myself unable to resist his [...]


    12. I know a lot of people skip novellas. That's ok. Most of them are just fun pieces of fluff that help us curb our appetites for our favorite series. They rarely impart anything vital. But trust me when I tell you that you don't want to skip this one. Not just because it's Derek, though, obviously you want more Derek. But as much as I love digging around in his head, it's Julie's thread in this story that you don't want to miss.This story centers around Derek's investigation into the murder of a h [...]


    13. A generously sized short story at over 60 pages, Magic Stars gives us a lead in the mind of Derek as he partners with Julie on a seek-and-revenge job while Kate and Curran are out of town. They go from one violent exploration to the next, with some downtime talking in between them.If you're a fan of the series, this short story is important reading because it reveals some stuff about Julie in the background that is important to the overall story (Roland, her relationship with Kate). I already kn [...]


    14. This review was originally posted at The Book NymphoKATE DANIELS FANS MUST READ MAGIC STARS!  I don't know how to start this review without spoiling you guys. It was so good. So. Good.I've had my head in textbooks the last few weeks so I didn't know that Magic Stars was even a thing. Then I see Jen over at Red Hot Books talking about it on Twitter. When I found out that story was from Derek's POV and it had Julie in it too, I was like . . .Derek has had a rough life, he had to kill his father a [...]


    15. This was sixty pages that were packed full of amazing. This was my first Kat Daniels novella and I was not disappointed. This little book probably will make me go back and read all the other novellas that I've neglected. This book stars Derek (The Grey Wolf) and Julie, who has appointed herself with the title of Kate's Herald. You know, like how Hugh was Roland's Herald. Many connections between those two concepts were made. We also find out that Julie knows way more than Kat thinks she does. It [...]


    16. I think I would have read Kate Daniels earlier if the first covers were this gorgeous! Does that make me a shallow person? :DThis little novella is a must for Kate Daniels readers!!We finally got the POV of one my favorite characters in the series, Derek, the Grey Wolf. I haven't realized how much I loved Derek until he (view spoiler)[almost died in Magic Strikes (hide spoiler)].And even if he got darker and more withdrawn throughout the story, there was still something very endearing about him, [...]


    17. AM I DREAMING? Is this really a story about Derekd Julie? What???!!!! I'm in heaven and you will be tooUrban Fantasy heaven but nonetheless. Basically, this story is about a wizard who had a family killed for some magic stones. Derek and Julie team up and bring people to justice. However, all the good parts are Derek and Julie and Julie and Derek good!And I'm not exaggerating! Okay, I lied, I am but just a little. But you can't blame me, I've (and just about every other fan of the series) wanted [...]


    18. Anything Ilona Andrews writes is magic. If you ever take anything away from my years of wisdom that I am willing to share with you, this is the most important lesson.So, I guess that's about it then.Oh, wait, the book. Okay, this book gives us the POV of Derek - the most awesome teenage werewolf sidekick ever. We Kate Daniels fanatics casual fans have been dying to hear from him because he is sarcastic, smart, and kickass. Then, there is the whole thing where we are absolutely dying for him and [...]


    19. EDIT - You know what I just realized? This tiny novella has made me more excited for the next book more than book 8 did. (view spoiler)[I like that there's a good set-up for some actual Roland action to happen. (hide spoiler)] I am so fricken ready for everything to just blow up soon. I've been waiting for the actual climax of this whole series forever it seems like, and I feel like things are definitely heading closer and closer to that!***********Not gonna lie - unpleasant thoughts usually run [...]


    20. Great entry in my favorite, favorite, favorite urban fantasy series. I had no idea Derek was such a little psycho and I LOVE IT. I did have an idea that Julie is overconfident in her abilities (teenagers, man) and this novella only created more tension in that area. I cannot WAIT to see what happens.Can't say I'm overly enthused by the probability of an eventual Julie/Derek relationship, but I'm sure Ilona Andrews could convince me to like anything. Even ham. I hate ham.Thanks to my fave IA BR b [...]


    21. I didn’t know Derek struggled with such darkness. I guess I forgot he almost turned loup when Curran found and saved him. I was thrilled when he moved on with Kate and Curran, outside of the Pack. It wouldn’t be the same without him. Oh, Derek and Julie!! I’m hoping we get a book two or at the very least some more short stories. Julie was kickass and awesome, and I loved being in Derek’s mind! There’s a lot brewing between these two and I can’t wait for more! This is a must novella f [...]


    22. THE REVIEWWhy this book?I'm a fan of the Kate Daniels seriesWhat I thoughtWell this was a interesting fast paced read! This was great addition to the series and nice little novella. Just wished It was longer. Derek and Julie has always been two of my favorite characters. I admit I do ship them just a little bit even with the slight age difference. This was full of action and magic and I recommend to every Kate Daniels fan.


    23. It’s not Christmas just yet, I know, but doesn’t it feel like it every time Ilona and Gordon publish something new? Yes, yes it does. Magic Stars came somewhat unexpectedly, having been kept secret until about a month ago, and the second we learned the protagonist, we were collectively consumed by an overwhelming feeling of pure joy. After all, Derek Gaunt deserves no less, and neither does our Julie.Finally, we get a glimpse of Boy Wonder from up close. We’ve been waiting a long time for [...]


    24. I read this story twice yesterdayICE ONE DAY.And on my second read I told myself that I was going to go slower and post updates.But I didn't.Because I didn't want to stop reading long enough to share the super amazing quotes!I'm not going to tell you what happens because I went into it not knowing and I LOVED it that way so all I will say is You should read this!If this is the direction that the Andrews are going with the KD world then I just need to send them a blank check to cover all of my pr [...]


    25. Pretty standard Kate Daniels story, there's some bad guys doing bad things and there's some weird magic and creatures thrown in for good measure, so of course Derek/Julie have to save the day. Not very original, but still fun. The best part was Julie's revelations about Hugh and Roland, not to mention the fact that she knows about the whole Kate/blood/obeying thing. She seems to be really good at lying/hiding things.Not sure how I feel about the Derek/Julie foreshadowing, Julie still seems way t [...]


    26. 4.5 starsUsually I don't read novellas. But it was Derek so I couldn't resist. If you're a fan and you've been following Kate Daniels from the beginning I recommend you do not pass this novella. It's a must read! Not just because it's that good but there's a few revelations in it regarding Derek and Julie that you have to know. I believe the information will have an impact on the Kate series. Do NOT miss out!


    27. I don't usually read novellas, they always leave me feeling unfulfilled. But since this was Derek and Julie, I couldn't pass it up.And damn, it's good. I'm going to leave the review at that. Nothing else neeeds to be added. Just read it.


    28. For some people, the stars aligned and everything went right. For him everything went wrong, every time. When he wanted something, when he reached for it, life broke him, yet somehow he always survived. I have loved Derek Gaunt since the first book, and ever since what happened to him in Magic Strikes, I have worried about how he has changed. The sweet and charming Derek has disappeared, and in his place is a too serious Derek who seems to carry the world on his shoulders.It was awesome to see t [...]



    29. Derek has a staring role in his own series ! Sweet beautiful Derek scarred and nearly lost forever has gotten most of his mojo back and has taken on a new role. He is Kate's wolf and he is on the path of a killer. He runs into Julie, sweet 16 and full of magic she's not really supposed to know or practice, but hey, she is a teenager. She has been a sneak, sneak, sneaking that all I going to say. Weird that it is that just ran into each other it turns out to be a very good thing. They are wonderf [...]
