1. A Love Story 

Observations:

This is a well written story that reminded me of Daphne and Apollo myth with a mixture of Ravenloft empire thrown in. I enjoyed reading about the character of Z'thandra who is the last of her kind and how she is living with a Reptar. What I also liked about it is that it felt complete and didn't leave many loose ends.

Year it was published: 2010


1. Lost and Found

Observations:

This story is loosely connected to A Love Story and it definitely had a dark feel to it. There are battles there, loyalty and dealing with personal and inner demons. This story did have a few loose ends and I did wonder if the mysterious Scholar had an appearance in the first story, and so forth.

Year it was published: N/A

1. Sister Margaret 

Observations:
This story was only ten pages long (I was reading it on my digital reader,) and I was sad it was short because it didn't really explain a lot as I had hoped it would. The story is loosely connected to Lost and Found and I would have liked it if it was longer and if a few things would be explained more.

Year it was published: 2006


Quick notes: I would like to thank the author for the opportunity to read and review the book.
