Erin *Proud Book Hoarder*
Cute, aimed toward YA or younger audience. A twist with these short stories that are seemingly fun is that most of the time people aren't what they appear and who you think is the hero may end up being the foe. Some stories are shorter with an incomplete feel, but overall still cute enough.

Love this series

Always good to get more backstory for a series. A couple of the stories were mediocre, but the rest were excellent. Keep up the great work!

Love the whole Cindy Eller world

Would like to find out more about the Donovan storyline. Nat too. Wish we could actually try some of the amazing sounding sweets and treats from Cindy's shop.

Oh you sneaky little tease. Great insights into their universe. Loved the teases too. Here's to hoping we get to meet the people who were hinted at in each segment. I would love each sister to get her own series, but I'd settle for more on the twins and poor sweet Iris.

Not as good as the books

These short stories are too short and sometimes thy make no sense. I was not impressed and I have read the entire Cinder Eller series
