Review: MAGIC GIFTS by Ilona Andrews

MAGIC GIFTS by Ilona Andrews

This is a fun filler novella that takes place during Ilona Andrews’ novel Gunmetal Magic. Because so much urban fantasy/paranormal romance involves a burgeoning romantic relationship between the main characters, it’s always a treat to stop by and visit Kate and Curran. Especially when they are trying to do cute couple stuff, which always seem to fail miserably. Despite the fact that they still have yet to get married in the series (at least as far as I’ve read), they are practically an old married couple even by the events in this story.

It’s not a long read, but like every story in this series, it still manages to pack in a lot of fantastic world-building. As much as I want Kate Daniels and co. to venture outside of Atlanta again, I know that there’s still so much to be explored right there!

Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
