review after I voluntarily read the ARC copy from the publisher First I must say these were my very first books by these authors so I read them as standalones I Every Boys Dream liked the first novella both the way it was written and the story itself Also it had enough magic while not being about magic It was obvious it was a part of a series but that wasn t annoyingike it can be soometimes I Starflight Zero ll keep this author in mind for the future readsThe other two novellas disappointed me which is why the rating is only 2 stars The middle story about the reiver was too ordinary to be in this collection there wasn t enough magic and I didn tike the author s voice On the plus side it reads well as a standalone and the story is rather original The A Succession of Bad Days last novella was clearly apart of a series and the hints atarger events I knew nothing about were somewhat annoying There was even too much magic but most of it wasn t connected to the star Also the The Multi-Orgasmic Man love between the two main characters went way too fast. Attleuntil she steals the wrong cow and is caught in the act by the newaird Brochan Macintosh has his hands full repairing his tower house and raising his motherless twins But when his plans to trade Cristy for his cattle go awry he wonders if he wants to ransom her after all Can he tame her wild ways and give her a family to ove and will Cristy be the one to heal his onelinessMACALPIN'S HEART by Laurin WittigA preuel novella for Guardians of the Targ.
