  • This anthology is a precious gift, for the contributes, the editing, the cover, the interior art, the dedication and the cause.Castle Coeurlieu by Naomi Novik I liked Novik s novel Uprooted, and here I found again that mix of historical fiction and gothic fairytale I ve so appreciated in her standalone I also love her care for details and the way she writes female protagonists.A Slow Kill by Peter Orullian this story features a Machiavellian assassination It s carefully planned, well worded and [...]


  • Little Wren and the Big Forest by Michael J Sullivan A charming story about courage and love, involving a little girl, Wren, and the mythical villain dwarf from ancient times, Gronbach Best to be read afterAge of Mythto have a better visual of the surrounding world It is part of the anthologyUnfettered II , by editor Shawn Speakman, but also, courtesy of the author, it may be downloaded from Instafreebie instafreebie public L


  • I am biased But this anthology is about as wonderful and magical as any I ve read And I ve read than a few I really enjoy having these Unfettered anthologies being themeless It allows every contributor to do something that they otherwise wouldn t be able to do and it shows in the quality of the stories.Add that this is my way of memorializing my mother who is featured on the cover and it makes Unfettered II really special My own short story contribution is about her last days as she struggled w [...]


  • Great little story set in the world of The Legends of the First Empire Of course, once you get a taste you re going to want .


  • A good short story by MJS 3.5 starsYou can t help but like little Wren, she is adorable, unfortunate and simple I love the setting to this story Something about mysterious, dark forests haunt me, in an enchanted wondrous sort of way I can t help but sense that there has to be magic in the strange and mystical spaces between the trees.This story had the feel of a bedtime fairytale One that mothers and grandmothers would tell hundreds of years ago when tucking the little ones into quilts on beds o [...]


  • I wanted to review this only to say thank you to Shawn for including me in it, and to the other authors for contributing such great stories.For my part, I have a SHATTERED SANDS story in the anthology The story focuses on Dardzada, an apothecary who, for a time, is the foster father of eda the heroine of TWELVE KINGS IN SHARAKHAI I wanted to tell his tale because he became really interesting to me as I wrote about him in TWELVE KINGS He cares for eda very much, but goes about it in the wrong way [...]


  • A varied, well written collection of short stories to dip into between long books Details of each one noted in other reviews I enjoyed all stories, but some appealed than others, depending on my own favourite writers or themes.


  • As per usual, Shawn Speakman delivers a great anthology I didn t outright not like any of the stories in this one but I did find a couple a little boring as is bound to happen Here s a little about which were my favorites My favorite story of this particular bunch was Magic Beans by Django Wexler His coffee shop erotica I appreciate a story with both a sex closet and a dragon in it The Thrill by Brandon Sanderson was also super exciting It not only ramped up my excitement for Oathbringer by a t [...]


  • I didn t actually read this book nor do I plan to I m not a fan of anthologies I did pick it up though to read the Dalinar flashback that Sanderson published in it, and it was a good enough dose to satiate a little my thirst for some stormlight.


  • I only read the Brandon Sanderson part so this is a review only on that.The Dalinar Flashbacks from the new Stormlight Archive book Oathbringer, are real treats They show some glimpses of the dark man Dalinar was in his youth, as well as a first glimpse to his forgotten wife The fighting scenes are quite impressive but maybe not as polished as I would have expected hoping for this to be cleaned up in the review process , also since the scenes are from three different chapters in the soon to be p [...]


  • I picked up this anthology specifically for Janny Wurts and Jim Butcher Enjoyed both of their stories Wurts short story is a great example of what her epic fantasy style is like plus the story had a great history lesson feel to it, which I really enjoyed Butcher s is basically required reading for mega Dresden fans.



  • This anthology is a good example of why we need fewer white dudes in charge Few heroines, and the ones written by men were questionable I don t think there were any POC It gets bland A lot of the stories were also cliches Castle Coeurlieu Felt scattered and a little lost Took a long time to get going, and once the pace picked up, the story just sort of shambled to a stop A Slow Kill As two men who both happen to be assassins dig a ditch together, one tells the other stories of some of his kills [...]


  • NOTE I only read Day One by Jim Butcher.So happy to finally see Butters getting his own story The medical examiner, now a Knight of the Cross, tells the tale of some of his training, and the adventure of his first Calling Stan, a homeless man that seems consumed by fear, is on a bench in the park with an over his head apparently God speaks to you in the way you would most easily understand and for Butters that is video games Getting him to the hospital, Butters finds that 7 other people in the h [...]


  • I liked this one even than the first Unfettered In the first one, there were some stories that I didn t like or didn t enjoy, but in this one there was none of that There were some stories I enjoyed than others, everyone has their favorite authors, but I can t say I didn t enjoy them There was no eye rolling, no sighs of frustration at how a story turned out I think a reason for that is that the writers are free to choose what they want to write, there are no restriction on them to fit a story [...]


  • I plan to finish reading this, but I don t even need to finish to know this will get 5 stars I read one story, Castle Coeurlieu by Naomi Novik, which was great, before impatiently skipping to The Thrill by Brandon Sanderson, which is a short story in his Stormlight Archive series, taking place during the conquering uniting of Alethkar I couldn t be impressed Brandon always knocks it out of the park with his Cosmere stories.Now back to my book Crossing my fingers that I find another series worth [...]


  • Listened to this on Audiobook.Great anthology, and the narrators particularly whoever narrated A Slow Kill give the tales a great amount of depth.The only downside I have is that several stories are set upon existing fantasy worlds and, if you have no background on them, you will miss lots of references.The upside of the downside is that I now really want to read the Dresden Files.


  • There s a great cause behind this book That being said I m glad I purchased it with that in mind There were 2 4 stories I actually enjoyed The Jim Butcher story was great, I mean really you can t go wrong with Jedi Butters I also enjoyed Shawn s own story Sadly Terry Brooks was advertised when buying my copy Brooks wrote a wonderful forward, but no story Overall buy it for the cause and maybe you ll enjoy than I did.


  • First thing to say is that all the narrators in here are 5 I don t recognise all of them but there s actors like Greg Tremblay and Khristine Hvam uncredited here as well as Michael Kramer and Nick Podehl The stories are harder to mark because there s a real verity here but I found well over 11h of 4 5 star stuff and even a couple of new authors to try So much better than the first collection in my opinion.


  • Solid collection, few clinkersI bought this largely to fill a hole in my Dresden Files collection, but it was fun to poke around the edges of some other series, some by writers I ve never read Most were solid, one or two extremely good, a couple not so good That s the nature of the Collection Beast However, it passed the fun to read test.


  • Only read the Dalinar chapters The first chapter was EXCELLENT It slowed down as the chapters progressed, but with good reason I think the rest of the Dalinar chapters when they release will make the piece feel way complete.


  • A nice mixed bag of stories The only issue I had is that I am unfamiliar with some of these longer works that the stories fit into that I did get a little lost Other than that, the stories were, for the most part, pretty well put together.


  • I really should read short story collections There was one I wasn t a huge fan of, but mostly I liked these a lot.


  • Buenos relatos cortos, los de los autores habituales, junto a un mont n de relatos bastante m s mediocres por autores desconocidos para mi No tengo miy claro que haya merecido la pena este libro B




  • I received this as a bonus for supporting the kickstarter This story is a fairy tale cliche The writing was good but in the end, its an average read Not bad but not good either.


  • This story was sent to me by the author as part of a kickstarter This story reminds me of some of the Grimm fairytales.


  • Not as good as Unfettered I, although there were some standouts, most notably Brandon Sanderson s The Thrill And Speakman s tribute to his mother was sweet.
