It's hard to rate a collection of four stories--each is so different. And I read the book a little while ago and turned it in, so I'm having trouble remembering the names of the four stories. But here's what I can remember:

* The evil angels in the Samaria one are too creepy for me. I did really enjoy the aunt/niece relationship, though.

* I liked the indigo/gulden story a lot. Let's hear it for men standing up for morality, for healthy families and for the mentoring of young men. I appreciated the main character's discovery of healthy family relationships after a dysfunctional upbringing. The romance was good, realistic I thought--sure, the race issue was obvious, but I enjoyed it anyway.

* I liked the Mystic/Rider prequel because I liked Mystic and Rider.

* I reacted to the Summers at Castle Auburn story similarly to Troubled Waters: I liked the strong male lead a whole lot more than the female protagonist. Irresponsible women are irritating. But the faithful guard makes up for it.
