Having read a book by Kev Heritage before, I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed when I asked to review his new book. Being a fan of all spooky, dark and macabre stories this book was a fantastic read. The desolate walking corpse I found intriguing, Quick Kill Jane, The Petrol Redhead this book has it all. Sci-fi, fantasy, death, murder The Lady In The Glass is a stunningly good read. Well done KH I look forward to the next one!

The first thing that drew me in to The Lady in the Glass was the cover art. I'm a sucker for spooky stories, and I was hoping for some sort of horror/ghost theme going on. To my surprise, it was even better! This collection of tales is loosely connected, not only by the common theme of death/dying in a futuristic, oftentimes post-apocalyptic world, but as you read through the collection, you can actually see how many of the stories are related, some more obviously than others. As in all anthologies, some of the stories are "better" (more to my liking) than others, though as always, your mileage may vary. You may love them all! I certainly liked them all, though both "Escaping the Cradle" and "How to Make it up to Julia" pulled on my heartstrings, and "White Night" was both fascinating and filled me with dread. My favorite story of them all was probably "White Night," as I imagined Anisha endlessly walking. While I received an ARC from the author, I was not compelled to write a review. As always, I review (positively or negatively) when I feel that the book deserves it. While this collection isn't prefect, it's one that I would certainly recommend!

I have read previous books by this author and was thrilled to read his new book especially as this anthology has some real gems. Stories that end far too soon and characters that I want to know more about. I was fascinated by the desolate walking corpse and an emotionally traumatised replacement husband juxtaposed against a total bad-ass resilient assassin (that I have a huge soft spot for) and a killer redhead. I loved the idea of a time travelling accountant and the alarming Jupiter Stone boy. The Lady does indeed tell wonderful stories; I hope he finds her again.

What a read!! First time reading one of Heritage's books and definitely won't be the last. It's been a while since reading a collection of Mystery/Fantasy stories and the "The Lady in the Glass" gave me all the reasons to spend a little bit more time under the Sci-Fi section at the bookstore. "The Lady in the Glass" takes you through 12 tales of painfully relatable and human feelings concerning the justification of revenge, resentment, co-dependency, and self-preservation through death. Despite their neuroses, Heritage does an impressive job at developing the characters' conflicting perspectives without positioning anyone or thing as the enemy. Had to revisit some parts over due to my unfamiliarity of some context, but it's definitely worth the second round of eyes, because if you miss a vowel, you'll miss the lesson! KJ, this one is a winner!

I'm not a fan of short story collections. I approached The Lady in the Glass thinking, "I'll just skim, maybe I'll find one I like since I like Kev Heritage's writing." WRONG! I read the Prologue and had to read each story and every word of each and every story. Despite the brevity, plots were complex and characters were compellingly developed. You'll see some old friends sprinkled here and there, if you've been reading Kev's books all along. There are 12 stories which don't candy coat the story at all. They are boldly emotional and sometimes bittersweet. My preferences are suspense, supernatural, fantasy, and sci fi. There's at least one of each genre and all of them engaging to the point of escaping our sometimes altogether too real world. This one is a winner! If I could choose 4.5 stars, I would.
