It took me a while (80 pages or so) to really get into this book, but once past that point, the story FLEW! It kept me interested and I found it to be a very enjoyable adventure/fantasy story. I think I'll get the next one in the series.

My son loaned me this book. As a loan, I try to get them read before books I own. So, I took this to bed with me, fell asleep with it in my arms, had to re-read 3 of the short stories (the sacrifices I make!) when I picked it up again. GREAT stories!...more
