    Okay.

    This book is made of chapters of other books. So it's really a book sampler with 8 samples.

    Sampler

    Well done sampler (should be advertised that way though). Provides little author and story summaries along with two chapters from each book. The stories themselves are pretty good- they include enough of the story to get you intrigued.

    Another boring samplet

    This is the second book like this i have read. I have now read 134 books and the only book i might even purchase is the very last one, i am glad that i stuck too my policy that what i pick up i will finish but where i can pick up a book and read in a few days didn't work it took me almost a week a great book to go tp sleep with. To sell you need to show parts on excitment to peak ones imagination and this did not but i at the end there was a better book.

    Full-Blooded Fantasy

    Excerpts from several youth books will give you a taste of what young people's fantasy consists. Most of the presented samples are interesting and original. Worth a look and who knows? Perhaps you will find some of these stories worth following up - there really isn't much difference between adult stories and well-written youth stories. Basically, in good fiction, the major difference is the age of the protagonist.
