I quite enjoyed reading the box set. I have read books by Melle Amade, Lena Mae Hill, Jamie Thornton, and Erin Hayes before so reading these new short stories were such a treat. I even found a few new authors I must look into. My favorite books were Ninjas & Nephilims by Kristin D. Van Risseghem, The Apple Rebellion by Kelly St. Clare, Instinct by Melle Amade, Before the Magic by Lena Mae Hill (hit close to home for me), Prince of Hawks by Sarah K.L. Wilson, Doormaker: Devil’s Harvest by Jamie Thornton, and I Want to be a Pirate by Erin Hayes.
I received an ARC of Marked by Fate: Origins by Jamie Thornton in exchange for an honest review of Doormaker: Devil’s Harvest. In no way did this influence my review.
Doormaker: Devil’s Harvest is a start of a brand new series full of fantasy and almost horror elements. I liked this story for its mystery. Esson is an interesting character trying to hide a secret, he finds doors that open to other worlds, however he cannot open the same door twice since they never lead to the same place, but while doing a drug deal he gets wrapped up in things way over his head. He wants to do right by his family, but he gets himself stuck in another world with no way to get home. I wonder where his story will lead to next.

Other good stories include "Ninjas & Nephilims," by Kristin D. Van Risseghem, where the son of an angel has to protect a baby from demons.
Then there's "Jonah's Curse," by Rhonda Sermon, where he faces the choice of dying or working for the enemy.
In "A Becoming Attribute," by Debra Kristi, Crystia discovers she can understand cat-speak.
"Before the Magic," by Lena Mae Hill, begins with the chilling sentence, "It's around noon on a Monday when I find my father's body." Who wouldn't want to find out what comes next for Stella?
In Jamie Thornton's "Doormaker: Devil's Harvest," 13-year-old Esson, who doesn't always think things through, is stealing drugs so he can sell them so his family can make the rent.
I could go on listing each story, but trust me, they are all good. They are fascinating stories that will draw you in right from the start.
I was lucky enough to get an Advanced Reader Copy in return for a review. The result is I want to order more by all of these writers.
I really love Erin Hayes Cotton Candy Quintet series. I Want to be a Pirate was Erin's contribution to this boxset. It was a short, but sweet story. It is a story about how Neptune one of the characters in the series became the owner of Neptune's World.
I also enjoyed Ninjas and Nephilims by Kristin D. Van Resseghem. It's was a good introduction to Kristin's Enlighten series. It made me want to go and re-read the series.
