This story is a present the authors released in time for Christmas which to me says alot about the authors and how they appreciate their fans.

Magic Gifts is a bridge between Magic Slays (Kate Daniels #5) and Gunmetal Magic which is Andrea's book and releases during the summer of 2012.

What starts out as a first of it's kind date between Curran and Kate, quickly spirals out of control when a vampire navigator who works for the People is killed by a gold necklace and a young boy ends up being put in harms way by his own mother. Curran and Kate end up working with Ghastek in attempting to solve what really happened and finding a way to help the little boy before the necklace strangles him as well.

It's interesting, to me at least, how they incorporate yet another fictional being into their storylines. This time it's the Nordic Vikings and a showdown between Curran and one of the vikings. You can obviously tell that they have done some intensive research in order to portray their characters in the best possible light.

As a follower of the series, you can see how far the relationship between Curran and Kate has come to the point where she's rather comfortable now being called Consort for the Beast King. She also works with her best friend and partner in crime Andrea in their Cutting Edge Investigations which is to say the least, struggling to find clients. Kate also has another issue on her plate with the Mercenary Guild which will be interesting to see how they handle that storyline in the future.

As for the Kate Daniels series itself, we won't see another book until 2013, and it appears there are two scheduled for release that year. Like the saying goes...CAN'T WAIT!
