This was JUST what I needed to survive the wait between Kate Daniels books (hopefully Gunmetal Magic will help with that as well at the end of July). I actually really enjoyed the brief look into Kate and Curran's life and was very satisfied with how their relationship is progressing. You know, now that they're together, I had fears that their relationship would become complacent, but if the sixth book goes something like this, I think those fears will be assuaged. With the world and characters already established, Magic Gifts really did feel like the perfect mini-story between books. So glad Kelly convinced me to read this one.Magic Gifts was a free download I got from the author's website on December 29th, 2011.
