Ilona Andrews‘ Kate Daniels series is written from, well, the POV of Kate Daniels. Kate has frequent (snarky, violent) encounters with Curran, the Beast Lord or leader of the Atlanta shapeshifters. So what does he really think of her?
Gordon Andrews occasionally writes scenes from Curran’s POV containing gems like this:
What could possibly cause a cat, a wolf, a hyena, and a middle-aged medmage honey badger to risk my wrath? I couldn’t figure out the what or the why, but I had a damn good idea of the who. Kate Daniels, professional fuck-up.
Kate short-circuits my brain. In my head we always have these clear coherent exchanges, but once we meet, what comes out it is, “Kate, do what I say or I’ll kill you.” Her default reply is, “Fuck you!” and we go downhill from there.
and occasionally posts them on the blog.
And Ilona has just announced that the first volume of the collected posts: http://www.ilona-andrews.com/2010/07/12/on-beast-lords-web-presence-of is now available as free downloads on Smashwords.
Like I said: Sweeeet!
Oh, and thanks, Ilona and Gordon. 😉
