Book Review – The Gift: A Christmas Novella (Mageri Series Book 6) by Dannika Dark

The Gift (Mageri #5.5)The Gift by Dannika Dark

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this novella as a little Christmas treasure. The Mageri Series is one of my all-time favorite series of books to read, and having read all of those multiple times, it was nice to see some fresh material on the characters I’ve come to know and love.

I found it fun, if a little strange, to follow the whole bunch as they celebrated Christmas together. What was a little strange to me? That I was thoroughly entertained by a book that had virtually no conflict in it! I’m not even kidding you. It was all like a big “see what they’re all up to now” type of thing, with little tidbits of life happened for each one of them.

It still leaves some things to question, though. What choice will Sadie make, and either way, will she and Adam ever get together? Is Novis really in love with Sunny, and if so, will she ever decide to bite the bullet at become a Mage, or at least spark a romance with the quirky but loveable guy? What will Paige and Justus’s first binding experience be like once she’s turned to a mage? Will Leo, Lucian, and even Levi (the Cross brothers/Chitah’s) ever find their kindred spirits?

I was also a little disappointed that Christian Poe didn’t make an appearance in this book. I hear he’s getting his own story soon, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Can. Not. Wait.

At any rate, by the end of this book, I felt very “heart-warmed,” and I loved the happy ending. If you’re a fan of Dannika Dark’s Mageri Series, you’ll most likely love this one. If you like Urban Fantasy and/or Paranormal Romance, and haven’t read this series yet, odds are you’ll love it and you should pick up Sterling (Book 1) now and start there.
