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
another great day in Sanctuary...missing Hanse, and all the Stepsons... But got to see a few old friends....
Probably one of my favorite volumes in the series.

Good shared world book series. The variety of writers keeps the stories fresh. Recommended
Got to just get through this marathon series now...

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.
The first book I finished on my Kindle!
