Based on the assumption reviewer Clevermore seems to have made, it's important to note that this is a collection of short stories, not a compilation of any of the author's novels. Many of the short stories have appeared in various anthologies in the past. Kirkus calls this a mixed bag, and that sounds fairly accurate to me. "Mimic" was by far my favorite, and well worth reading the whole collection for. I also particularly enjoyed "Testing," a realistic piece. While, to some extent, I read this book because I was curious how the short stories changed "canon," I actually found myself more uncomfortable reading "Nawat" and, to a lesser extent, "Elder Brother" because I tended to get rather defensive of the characters that I'd met and liked in her other books. (I did enjoy "The Dragon's Tale" a lot, though, and that one also had characters we've seen before.) My anticipation is that this book will be appealing for those who have already read some of Pierce's books and have been curious about her short stories. As someone who gives book recommendations a lot, I'm not sure that I would recommend this book to those who haven't read Pierce's other books from the land of Tortall.

This book is well written and definately my new favorite of Tamora's. It gives you a look into what happened after the happily ever after. This book may have been compiled of short stories but it felt like the final chapter in some of Tammy's older works. I definately recomend it, a must read!

Tamora Pierce outdoes herself again with this collection of short stories. The reader is able to discover her many different talents while reading these stories. She truly has a gift of imagination. What I liked the most about these stories is that the reader visits some places that they have never gone to, and others that are more familiar. You learn about new characters, and come to love them, and learn where she has taken her old characters you already know. Make sure you read her other stories before you read this one, or else you won't understand the significance of some things. She has been my favorite author since I was a little girl, and continues to be now that I've grown up. She is all about equal rights and woman power (no bashing men, of course), and I love it!

This book definitely helps fill in some of the gaps between the tortall books. It was nice to see what happens after the books. Didn't enjoy some of the stories as much as others but still good.

I thought these stories would be weak fare compared to the novels, but surprisingly there are many jewels among the stories, things we are glad to know about the characters we love and written in a way that packs a lot of information and excitement into a few words. You'll like this book!
