Rating: 4/5 stars

If you love the Kate Daniels series I recommend downloading and reading this novella of short stories which are written from Curran's point of view.  You can also get this on smashwords or off of the Andrews' website for free.  I downloaded it from smashwords a couple months ago. 

The stories are pulled from all different books in this series.  Most of them feature scenes between Kate and Curran, but are done from Curran's point of view.  There are a couple that cover times when Kate wasn't there (one is the conversation that Curran has with Julie when he is trapped in the Loup cage).

I wouldn't recommend downloading this to read if you haven't read the series.  None of these stories really explain much; they just give you some insight to Curran's thought process.  Which if you love the series you will really enjoy.

The stories themselves are well-written and humorous.  It is not a huge collection, takes maybe an hour or so to read.  Originally most of these stories were published on the Andrew's blog.  It is nice to get them all in one place and be able to sit down and read them.  It does give some insight into Curran and fills in a couple spots of the story where there were little gaps.

I really enjoyed reading this and can't wait for the Kate Daniels book to be released!  This is a must read if you love the series.  If you haven't read the series though I would recommend reading that first so you understand what is being covered in these stories.
