One of my favorite urban fantasy authors is the husband-and-wife team of Ilona Andrews. I love the Kate Daniels series and, as I wrote in this review, I thought On the Edge was an awesome start to their new series.
So I was thrilled beyond telling when Ilona named Deadtown as one of her favorite reads of 2009 in a guest post at The Book Smugglers. I knew Ilona liked Deadtown, because she read a pre-copyedited version of the manuscript and kindly wrote a blurb for the cover, but to be chosen as one of her top reads of the year was a real honor.
Unlike Sally Field at the Oscars, I’m speechless. 🙂
