Blue Boots, Robin Hobb, I have read other stories by this author but found this one to be very appealing, maybe the reference to blue boots just has an emotional tug on my heart, or just the fact that a minstrel can find true love, and despite rumor and intrigue find nobility in a young orphan girl. In the end a very moving story. You, and you alone, Jacqueline Carey, i am amazed by this story, lost in its world and fiction. Wow, what a story to draw you into this world created by this otherwise unknown author to me. I have found transcendent her love and devotion that she gives her main character, at first I was surprised it was a male character, but to see a Greek novelty in the story, and a love story that transcends gender and station in a world of kings and queens. Told at the moment of his death as he remembers his one and only love, and how they came apart and rejoined over periods of time, and place is truly inspiring. Under/Above the water, Tanith Lee, an odd story, with and ever ending loop similar to an infinity mark that rolls back over itself. Creating a fluid but confusing sequence of events that are drawn over themselves. the characters are opposites of each other, in one sequence named at the beginning and end of the alphabit, to be switched in placement. It results in a number of confusions about which character is which in the story. Demon Lover Cecelia Holland,begins very erotically similar in nature to a Peirs anthony Relationship book, with guilty pleasures making the character upset. But retells from the beginning how the character found herself faced with a lusty demon. Now its up to her and her friend to find a solution, and free themselves from the green tower.
Enjoyable collection of reads..
I got this book for the short by Jacqueline Carey. Her short was very good and I enjoyed reading it. The other stories were okay, but none of them made me want to go out and buy the other author's books
