Crosswort Puzzle – another story in medias res…usually I’m a big fan of these kind of tales but this one didn’t give enough info. The plot is solid, interesting, and well written but there are a lot of things left out. I appreciate the lack of authorial info dumping but I needed a little more. The characters kept referring to events/people that I would only be familiar with if I’d read previous shorts by the author.

The Menagerie - A very cute, very quick and rather funny read. Great ending to the book!

Tontine - I'm not sure what to think of this one...it’s not typical. The story is of a warrior woman who entered into a magical tontine with her best friends. She is the last to survive so she has the dubious honor of winning the tontine. The story is well written and well paced. My only issue was the lack of resolution.

Skin & Bones – this one was very interesting! It wasn’t what I expected – it certainly starts in medias res but from the intro I know that there have been several of these stories written in the previous S&S anthologies. It left me wanting more and this is an author I plan to track down.

Child of Ice, Child of Flame - pretty good story. Well written but sad. It was difficult to really get into due to how short it was - the world building was lacking. I really didn't leave satisfied

Child of the Father - Another really good one! I would love to read more stories about these characters. Very well written with a twist that I wasn't expecting.

The Decisive Princess - A good story, well written but not what I was expecting...it's a re-write of "The Lady or the Tiger"

Black Ghost, Red Ghost - Now this is right up my alley! Action, suspense, and a single person against horrible odds. The best in the bunch so far (IMO)

Bearing Shadows - umm, not sure what i think of this one. Its a good story but I wouldn't call it S&S...more like a sad tale of a woman violated to gain a child. Yeah, mull that one over.

The Ironwood Box - The story started slowly - a little boring, actually...then it got much more interesting in the middle. After that it tapered off again. The ending is rather like a fairy tale...take that how you want, lol.
