A Jim and Dali short! I like these two secondary characters from the Kate Daniels series and I liked reading more about them. That's a sign of an awesome series- while you love the main characters, you also want to learn more about the secondary characters too.
My favorite scene: Dali's mother smacking Jim (and Dali) on the head with a newspaper when they argued. "None of that in my house!"
Well plotted and paced given the length.
Next up in this series: Gunmetal Magic (and novella Magic Gifts which is included at the end of Gunmetal Magic).
