This is a compendium of short stories set either in the land of Laurell K. Hamilton's debute novel "Nightseer" or in some other fantastic worlds and scenarios. I especially liked the story "Wild geese" about a young magician who is going to confront the ursurper of her people and killer of her parents. However, the short story about a magical misfit who can kill somebody in her dreams will also stay in my memory for a long time and the short stories set in the "Nightseer world" are much better written and executed compared to the novel. The author likes to give every story a kind of dark/sad/tainted touch and this is something I really appreciate, because it distinguishes her writing from the normal fantasy with a happy ending theme significantly and is original in itself.
