From Publishers Weekly
The first solo collection from Fantasy Magazine co-editor Rambo is a two-sided coin. Her stand-alone stories are crisp and compelling, but the longer ones set in imaginary seaport Tabat are filled with predictable genre tropes that fall flat. On the good side, Heart in a Box follows three present-day tourists in Thailand who encounter a real-life mermaid, while Eagle-haunted Lake Sammamish finds an ancient dryad threatened by human progress. Less satisfying, Narrative of a Beast's Life tells the long-winded story of a centaur without a trace of tension or intrigue, and A Key Decides Its Destiny brings nothing new to the tired wizard yarn. Diehard fans of traditional fantasy will at least find plenty of familiar arcs and archetypes, if not so much narrative tension. (Aug.)

I was hooked by the middle of the first page. I was a fangirl by the end of the book.
I -loved- this book. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
To be completely honest, I sat here and tried to come up with author comparisons... and couldn't. She's just plain better than most of the authors she could be compared with. If pressed to the wall, I would say she's in a very select 'club' with Neil Gaiman, Charles de Lint, Ray Bradbury etc. Amazing, truly.
Seriously, she's my favorite short story author writing today.
I enjoyed it thoroughly.
