I've recently started reading the Kate Daniels books after recs here when I was looking for another Urban Fantasy series. I'm currently on book 3 and I have books 4 and 5 in my TBR pile. I've just seen that there's also Gunmetal Magic though, which also includes a novella about Kate/Curran?, and I wondered where it fits into the timeline? Do the events happening to Andrea in GM happen after book 5 or before? I'm slightly anal about reading series in order! :)

Gunmetal Magic takes place AFTER book 5. It's about Andrea.

And the Kate/Curren is an expanded version of something that you have already seen in book 4 (I think it may be in 5 but I think it's 4 -- I'm at work so I can't check the books)

I approve of people being anal when it comes to reading books in order. :-)

If the Kate/Curran novella is an expansion of something in an a prior book, it would have to be book 5. Andrea wasn't in that situation before then.

The Kate/Curran novella covers what Kate is doing while Andrea is having her adventures. :) They do end up tying together. I think you'll want to read the novella first if you are a stickler for series order. The novella was first released last Christmas, well before GM was released.

Awesome, thank you! :) Is Andrea and Raphel's on/off romance resolved in Gunmetal Magic? Does the book have a HEA or at least Happy for Now ending as far as that couple is concerned, or are there going to be more separate books featuring them?

Yes, it is resolved. :) And yes to your other concern too. While I know Andrea & Raphael will likely be in future Kate books, I don't know that there are plans for another Andrea book. I think there is going to be a Jim & Dali book. Of course, who knows what will happen. I think GM did really well for a spinoff. I'll be happy with whatever we get. :D
