This anthology is good, especially compared to those that I have read recently. I've bought it for Michelle West's stories and I absolutely love The Colors of Augustine. You can see my full review of it at Fans of Michelle Sagara West. It is by far the best short story of the anthology.

Tangled Pages by O'Shaughnessy is a very short story about an apprentice page who run away in a wood after losing almost all of his points (losing all of them would mean getting dismissed from the pages school and
- "Tangled Pages", M. T. O'Shaughnessy
- "Stormsong", Ed Greenwood
- "Riverbend", Ruth Stuart
- "The Colors of Augustine", Michelle West
- "White Shadow", Marie Brennan
- "Offering of Trust", Jana Paniccia
- "A Prayer of Salt and Sand", Karina Sumner-Smith
- "When Dragons Dream", Kevin G. Maclean

Some stories were a tad juvenile. But the anthology as a whole was okay.

One that kind of stands out in a good way is Michelle West's "The Colors of Augustine"
