Overall, this volume has some good stories in it, but it generally fails to cohere, with events from the various stories being poorly reflected in the other stuff supposedly going on at the same time. There's also a feeling that - despite some big events - nothing actually happens.

Hell to Pay, Morris. I'm a bit annoyed that Morris could use Roxanne throughout her novel series without actually giving her any closure. With that complaint, this is an OK story that only sort of advances the plot and

This one was pretty good. I remember reading it after I had graduated high school and moved to Atlanta. Some characters were gone by now and other new stories and characters were being introduced. It was a pretty good read, but not comparable to the earlier books, especially the first three. Those are just awesome!

Good shared world book series. The variety of writers keeps the stories fresh. Recommended

The newer characters didn't really grab me in the previous book but I feel like they really came into their own in this volume - I'm eager to see how Chenaya and Daphne fare after what happened in their story. As usual, I didn't care much for a couple of the authors but overall I found this to be more enjoyable than the last few.

I enjoyed it well enough. Some details became clearer. I find myself looking forward to certain of the participating authors and not others. I'll keep that in mind when deciding whether or not to read the follow-up series.

In this awesome seventh volume, a fearful cold grips Sanctuary, and the risen dead begin to outnumber the living, a new alliance that may save the war-torn Borderlands is born...

I enjoy the series but by this point it has lost some of the diversity of the first four or five books. Second time through the series.
