It was so nice to be back in Dannika Dark’s Mageri world. I was a bit late for Christmas with this one but that was ok. It was still close enough I think!

I had an idea of what was meant when naming this book “The Gift”. At least it was something I was hoping for. But, as I’ve found with this series, anything can happen! You are left on the edge of your seat right to the end. Reading it though, I kept telling myself, “this is a Christmas book, she’s not going to do something terrible”.

The Gift actually takes place a few years later than Shine, and we are treated to a Christmas with the kids. It’s a great time with Justus and Simon in charge of the tree and shopping for all the ornaments. Everyone is together at the building the Cross brothers found. So they all live in the same building, just different floors. Well, except for Sunny, Novus, Adam & Simon. They are all staying over for the holiday though so everyone is together.

I totally enjoyed sharing the holiday with these favorite characters of mine. It didn’t get tense until that phone call Logan gets. Then the worry started.

In my excitement for this novella, I listened to it before Closer and Risk. These two books are set in the Mageri World with some of our favorite characters. I think I would have had a grasp on a couple of relationships and characters if I had of listened to them first. You don’t have to, I’m just a bit crazy about reading books in order. So, even though on Goodreads it lists those books AFTER The Gift. I would read Closer and Risk first.

The story stole my heart and was a great conclusion to something that could have easily been left undone. I’m really hoping for another book to come that will feature Adam and Sadie, but I guess we’ll see if that happens.

If you’re reading this series, make sure not to leave out this novella!
