Review

Agents and Adepts
Kathryn Sullivan
Amber Quill, 2003
ISBN: 1592799175

This sixteen story collection introduces readers to a fabulous fantasy author who effortlessly creates realms so magical that readers will finish AGENTS AND ADEPTS in one sitting (this reviewer broke her rule of a tale or two a day over a couple of weeks). Each contribution insures that characters, including mythological and personification of planets and animals, seem very genuine. An added bonus is that several entries provide a delightful glimpse into the wizard world of the CRYSTAL THRONE. If the quality of these short stories is any indication of the novel, this reviewer will compete with other readers to obtain a copy.

Using humor that is rarely seen in the typical save the world or die genre, Kathryn Sullivan furbishes a wonderful book that makes fantasy seem real, fun to read, and entertaining. Just set aside a few hours because the exploits of the twins and others will make the audience complete in one delightfully entertaining sitting. Ms. Sullivan is an adept (and I am not her agent) worth reading.
