I got this as a "gift" from the writing duo Ilona Andrews! Thank you! I'm a huge fan of the Kate Daniels books so of course I own all the other short stories and collections as well. I enjoy the Curran freebies but they're admittedly a little rough for me and my editing nerves start twitching. While this story is missing the editing of the other published books in a few places it's actually fairly cleanly done.

Kate and Curran just want to go out for a little one-on-one date. Then a magical artifact goes and kills someone in front of them, releasing two vampires on a killing spree and ending up settling on an innocent child it will eventually kill if not removed. Of course Kate's not the type to sit down and take this. She and Curran start working to get to the bottom of it. In the mean time the Guild is still leaderless and clambering for attention and Andrea is having some issues of her own dealing with dead shifters.

It's typical fun in this book and a deeper look into the relationship between Kate and Curran. They may be admitting to their feelings now, and they're adorably in love, but the snark is still there. They give each other no quarter and it's still fun!

I definitely recommend any Kate Daniels fans pick this book up. It's actually quite long for a short story and it covers a lot of ground. While I'm sure the new things learned in this book will get covered in the next book, why not read it as it happens. After all, it never gets old seeing Kate wince at the term "the consort". Watching her wince as a werebison bellows "Make way for the Consort" as she goes striding in to bust some balls is always a good time! ( )

Pretty typical and easy to move through, but it throws in a huge problem that is just left for a future book. ( )

Magic Gifts is a novella in the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. Kate and Current attempt to go on a date after Kate wraps up a long day of monster slaying. Naturally it does not go quite as planned.

"I'm sorry about the dinner."
"Best date ever. Well, until people died and vampires showed up. But before that it was awesome."


This was a fairly fun story and felt like one of the normal books, just condensed down. I wish it had been longer so it could have explored the various myths that we touched upon more. ( )

This is a novella that starts just before Gunmetal Magic but the timelines runs during it as well. It's a tough call whether to read it first, I would have preferred to have read it first but there are a few scenes that might be considered spoiler for those who havent' read Gunmetal Magic. Kate is trying to save a boy from a magical necklace that is killing him.
