really liked it

This book covers a wide variety of periods, genres and voices, but one thing that remains consistent is the level of quality. Every author demonstrates their love of and feel for the subject matter, resulting in a high standard of detail that really brings the stories to life. And as a lifelong fan of difficult women, I found plenty of moments that brought on a laugh or a silent cheer! But rest assured, this isn't some feel-good tome about sassy birds who win anachronistic battles against the patriarchy; the women are a well-rounded bunch, intelligent and strong-willed but often flawed, sometimes callous or even murderous, and they don't always get happy endings.

This was my first Fablecroft book, but on the strength of this collection, it sure won't be the last.
