Herkes' storytelling abilities are surprisingly great. It's a fast-paced read, but you tend to soak up everything as you read it. It's captivating and exciting. The characters are easy to relate to, while being interesting. The world is similar to ours, but with a few serious changes. Herkes eases us into these changes without overpowering us with a ton of information that we can't process all at once.
What I enjoyed best about this book is that most of the stories are intertwined. We meet several of the same characters in different stories.
Though I sincerely wish that Herkes would take this world and create a full-blown novel out of it, I thoroughly enjoyed the short stories. I'm looking forward to jumping into her Stories of the Restoration series. Though these are also short stories, if they're as well done as Rough Passages, I'm sure to love it.
The Rough Passages shorts are now gathered in one place, with well rounded reoccurring characters that grow and progress throughout. These are no villian of the week stories here. Each of the stories are top notch (I consider Extraordinary to be one of the ten best short stories I’ve read) and hint at the massive potential of further stories yet to come.
