I love strong women. That’s no secret. I’ll take a competent woman adventurer over a damsel in distress any day.

I also love anthologies. Anthologies, as I’m certain someone has said before me, are like a box of chocolates. I picked up Beauty Has Her Way from Dark Quest Books as an informed reader.

This is a very fun collection, and I really like that the editor broke up the stories by time period. That gave it a feel of moving through time while reading, advancing in the history of strong women, and I enjoyed that overlay.
