Revisiting Dali and Jim is always a pleasure, and this novella was no different. Dali and Jim’s relationship is so much more subtle than the other relationships in the Kate Daniels series, but no more passionate. Dali’s strikingly different attitude and outlook on life is so refreshing, and I am really hoping that more of her stories will be told as the series continues.
Dali’s tales explore a different aspect of magic, shapeshifter life and mythology than the other books. Dali’s position as a purveyor of good within the East Asian (specifically Indonesian) community is further explored. This is so different from the usual positioning of the shapeshifters within this dystopian society, and I love the juxtaposition between Dali’s two identities. And the way that she eventually realises that she can use both aspects of her life in her partnership and leadership with Jim.
