Lacing Shadows: Anthology by Tina Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Nicely presented set of books, each with a unique fantasy element. Each story is well written and edited. This is an enjoyable read sure to please every taste in one way or another. I like that at least one does not contain sexual scenes, Into the Dark. The whole take on avoiding the cliche happy endings is handled nicely, making even the sad moments enjoyable to read. There is a fairy tale feel to some parts of the books but nothing that becomes annoying. With a touch more polish and finishing touches this could easily be five stars. Overall I was pleased and enjoyed the read. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.
