Jaqueline Carey's tale by itself merits the 5 stars, the additional 4 are icing on the cake.

Okaaay, este libro es, en realidad, una selección de cuatro cuentos de una antología más grande editada por George R.R. Martin y Gardner R. Dozois (Songs of Love and Death). He de admitir que sólo compré este libro porque costaba $50 y tenía una historia de Robin Hobb ♥; hubiera comprado solamente el cuento de Hobb por $50, la nets, pero también me daban curiosidad las otras historias. Lástima que no me gustaron tanto como hubiera querido. Ahora, mis pensamientos acerca de cada una:

I didn't read the original anthology this is part of (Songs of Love and Death) though given the fact the original collection has almost a dozen authors I like from various genres, I really should have. And maybe I will at some point (that is not right now). This collection however took 5 of the stories--how they were chosen I know not--and released them together as an ebook special.

I'll review each story separately and then my overall impression.

Novelliantologia, jossa nimi jo kertoo mistä on kyse. Mukana on viisi romantillista spefinovellia ihan etabloituneilta kirjailijoilta.

Luin antologian varsin nopeasti läpi, alun jälkeen hieman sekalaisin tuntein. Ihan niin paljolti tämä ei vakuuttanut kuin olisin toivonut. Romantiikan ja spefin yhdistelmä takerteli useissa tarinoissa. Kuin se romantiikka olisi ollut hieman päälleliimattu elementti. Pisteet kuitenkin yleisestä positiivisuudesta. Olen tylsä, en pidä rakkaustarinoista joissa on pak

Jo Beverly's "The Marrying Maid" - No vibe between the leads, and the woman's sudden reversal of decision felt rushed with little explanation, leaving me feeling icky about the power dynamics there. Good mythology, though. 3 stars.

Robin Hobb's "Blue Boots" was a sweet retelling of Cinderella. It's got well developed subtly for such a short story and a satisfying, happy ending (shocking for Hobb, I know!). It's also set in the Realms of the Elderlings world but no prior knowledge of that universe

I very much appreciate adding this book to my collection, having avidly read the previous books edited by George R R martin.

The marrying Maid, Jo Beverley another story of fairy, similar to Tam Lin where a human is trapped in fairy and has to create an impossible situation to find relief from the magic and spells of fairy, a young girl is taken from her home by a stranger that more frightens her then intrigues her, she is well met by the lady and lord of the fairies’ and is the object of their p

I was soooo excited I got to read this anthology. I am sooo glad I wasn’t disappointed. I have to admit the only reason I jumped at the chance to read and review Songs of Love Lost and Found was because it has a story by Tanith Lee in it. She is one of my all time favorite writers. Fortunately, all the stories were good, not just Lee’s, and before I knew it I found myself already fi

stories felt clipped and archaic...i expected some twist to make a point, to give meaning beyond 'love, yay', to show a confident intelligent person fighting for something they want? Mostly got 'it was fated' and mostly not in a unique form or interesting voice... ok might be a little hard on these authors... they weren't horrible stories, maybe i've just outgrown the love fairytale.
I liked the first story and the last story. The second was okay. The third and fourth I couldn't even finish. Sorry Jacqueline Carey and Tanith Lee, both of whom are in my TBR pile for their series...maybe not anymore.

Some great short stories from some big names in fantasy, including some personal favorites like George RR Martin and Jacqueline Carey. Picked this up to read Anafiel Delauney's story of his love with Roland de la Courcel, but actually had my heart won by the other selections.

The Jaqueline Carey was fantastic. The others I could take or leave.

I read You and You Alone by J Carey! I really liked it! :D

I only read Blue Boots so my rating is based on that.
Read You and You Alone by Jacqueline Carey for my book club, but haven't read the others.

Loved all of the stories in this book except one - the Lee one. Was looking forward to this because I like both Carey and Hobb, and their stories definitely didn't disappoint.

I bought this book for Anafiel Delauney's backstory, which was a fun read, but the other stories didn't do much for me.

It gave me background in the Kushiels series that I never knew. Good book. I need to read more like it!
