Rating: 9/10 (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Harriet Klausner
This thirteen-story fantasy collection contains entries all written in the past decade or so. Each contribution will interest the reader as various emotions serve as the respective centers of each tale. Fantasy fans should comprehend up front that whether it is Christmas or some other festive occasion, these offerings typically do not end in a happily ever after, but for the most part will leave readers with a lump in their throat. Hell what could one expect with some of the locations. Every story is extremely well written and worth reading and this anthology showcases Michelle West’s talent and imagination to play with feelings. This reviewer must specifically mention the final entry, “To Speak with Angels”, which with pride will leave nary a dry eye.
