I really enjoyed this book. Fresh new twist on the old fairy tales. I will always buy anything from Laurell K. Hamilton as well as Marjorie M. Liu and Yasmine Galenorn. I love their writing and my daughter has been enjoying their books as well. This was the first time I have read anything from Sharon Shinn, but will have to check out her other works. Thank you ladies for all of the memorable hours we spend in your worlds. You all have great talent. I recommend your books to everyone.

The anthologies are fun and give those little connections to favorite characters in the series written by each author. The book is fun to read and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
