    This review is only based on three of the stories I did read The Heart of Evil, Matters of Perception, and Blind City While there was an interesting twist in The Heart of Evil, the characters were not very well developed They all had interesting backgrounds, but from the way they re written you d think it d all happened to someone else I couldn t sympathize with any of them The librarian was very inconsistent blowing hot one moment, cold the next All of this could have be excused by the s This review is only based on three of the stories I did read The Heart of Evil, Matters of Perception, and Blind City While there was an interesting twist in The Heart of Evil, the characters were not very well developed They all had interesting backgrounds, but from the way they re written you d think it d all happened to someone else I couldn t sympathize with any of them The librarian was very inconsistent blowing hot one moment, cold the next All of this could have be excused by the shortness of the story, but it was much harder to read when no one could simply speak No, they had to admit weakly or grudgingly agree , for example The same technical awkwardness was prevalent in Matters of Perception, though the main character was better developed as we d already seen him from the p.o.v of the protagonist in The Heart of Evil However, his love interest wasn t and again, everything felt rushed and merely glossed over Like it was a summary of a much longer story Blind City was a case where everything was told to the reader and not shown The characters were very likeable, but the the writing was bogged down with too many adjectives, interjections, and other needless little details

    Review based on 4 7 stories.Part of Your World 4 stars A cute little merman story.Beast 1 star before reading this story it never occurred to me that Beauty actually suffers from Stockholm syndrome By the end of the story though I think I was just as disappointed as Beau at the transformation of Gabriel from the humble Beast into the vain rock star It just does not leave you with a happy feeling and seemslike HFN Maybe it would make a difference if the author wrote a Part II in Review based on 4 7 stories.Part of Your World 4 stars A cute little merman story.Beast 1 star before reading this story it never occurred to me that Beauty actually suffers from Stockholm syndrome By the end of the story though I think I was just as disappointed as Beau at the transformation of Gabriel from the humble Beast into the vain rock star It just does not leave you with a happy feeling and seemslike HFN Maybe it would make a difference if the author wrote a Part II in which we get to see how they manage to keep their relationship intact.The Heart of Evil 3 stars Kallum and Ash it took me a while to figure out Kallum s love interest and even then I didn t feel any connection between them.Matters of Perception 3.5 stars a continuation of the previous story from Kallum s apprentice Nathaniel s POV in which he goes to rescue his sister but ends up trapped in a garden with it s mysterious beast like caretaker It makes me want to readstories set in this world
