's review

it was amazing

As I read the stories offered in Christa Carmen's debut collection, a few words came to mind; powerful, thought-provoking, and disturbing. While not every story was a favorite, there wasn't one I didn't enjoy on some level. I think the reason for this is while not all of the characters appealed to me, Carmen's writing does.

My favorites of the bunch are Red Room, The Girl Who Loved Bruce Campbell, and Flowers From Amarylis, and there is definitely a feminist flavor throughout the collection, but these stories will resonate with any reader, as long as they enjoy an author with a fantastic imagination and a knack for the art of storytelling. I think most readers will find a story that sticks with them long after the end in this collection.

An awesome debut, Christa Carmen is definitely an author worth watching. I can't wait to read more from her.
