1.5 stars to The Assassin's Apprentice by Michelle Zink. Overall I felt the story was unsatisfying. You were dumped into the story with an unclear setting and limited characterization. The story also did not meet the "paranormal love" element in my opinion since that was out of NOWHERE and weak. A sudden kiss for no explicable reason isn't good enough Ms. Zink.

I don't read very many anthologies because for some reason they take me longer to read than novels.

"The Assassin's Apprentice" by Michelle Zink:

I have the first book for her Sisters of the Prophecy series but I have not read it yet. I have no idea if this short story has anything to do with the series but I enjoyed it! It makes me want to read her novel as soon as I can! There wasn't a lot of explanation on what Descendants are or Assassins except that they have so

'The Assassin's Apprentice' by Michelle Zink - 3/5, only because I felt it was too short and too rushed for 3 characters and a world that deserved a better expansion.

'Errant' by Diana Peterfreund - 2/5, it's the first thing I've read by this author and I didn't feel impressed, the ages century orphaned lady disputed by two rivals that proves herself strong is too cliche, a nun who tames unicorns too odd, and overall not outstanding.

'The Spirit Jar' by Karen Mahoney - 4/5, the narrator bugged me
