Six, by Lindsey R. Loucks was a great mix of funny, creepy, and heartwarming - impressive for such a short story. The author is very good at building suspense and packing a lot of emotion into just a few words. It's complete, but there's room for more. I'd follow this one in a heartbeat if it were expanded.
Interception, by Norma Hinkens had me hooked by the end. It was very easy to visualize everything. I was really impressed by how clever this one was. Honestly, for me this one was second only to the Lindsey Loucks story.
Planetstrong, by Pamela Stewart was really good. It featured strong world-building and an interesting story. The main character was very easy to root for. She's not abrasive but she knows her value and is brave even when afraid. I really liked that. This is one I would follow if it were expanded upon.
Deliverance, by Raquel Lyon had some great lighthearted moments and plenty of action. I liked that the male lead had some charm. It might be fun to follow a series with these characters.
Going Home, by Holly Hook was an unusual take on an alien invasion theme. It kept me guessing and my interest in the story increased as it progressed.
Siteron, by Krista Street had a nice message told in an entertaining way. The world building on this one was impressive and I liked that it felt like a complete story. I was entertained by it enough that I've already downloaded more of the author's work.
The Culling, by Melissa A. Craven featured strong world-building and a lot of action. Things are left a little up in the air, but not in an annoying way. Maybe the moral could have been presented a little more subtly, but it was a good moral so no problems here.
The Crystal Prince, by Everly Frost was unlike anything I've ever read. I had no idea where it was going, though everything that happened worked within the story. This one feels really self-contained has a satisfying ending.
The Stars Between, by D.S. Murphy was a roller-coaster ride. It's a prequel for a planned series. It was certainly interesting, although I wish more time had been spent on describing the two peoples and their abilities (mechanical and otherwise). It is most definitely a dark fantasy.
Daughters of Ayor, by David Bernstein felt a little like two stories put together. Like D.S. Murphy's story, this gets serious.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this anthology.
Here are reviews for some of my favorites in the bunch:
Between the Earth and the Stars: I really enjoyed the deception that occurs in this one. The romance was also really sweet.
Daughters of Ayor: Wow! This one was heartbreaking and a little scary. I really connected with Len and was rooting for him the entire time.
Deliverance: This one was fun. I thought the romance and dialogue was written so well, and I always love when a heroine repeatedly saves the hero. I look forward to reading more from Raquel Lyon.
Going Home: I thought the twist in this one was genius. I found it to be incredibly well-written and would love to read more books set in this world.
Sycorax: This is one of those featuring a ‘too good to be true’ situation, and I enjoyed waiting and wondering how the plot would play out. I could easily picture every scene which is something I look forward to with science fiction and fantasy.
The Stars Between: This one was a bit dark and sad, but I loved it as well. I noticed that this is a prequel, and I am interested in continuing the series. Celeste is such a great character; one that I immediately connected with and would really like to see more of.
I received a copy and volunteered to review it.
Between the Earth and Stars by Elle Scott was one I really enjoyed, it had a very sweet romance, but a nice twist thrown in at the end. Interception by Norma Hinkens was an amazing story. It is typical Norma style, a thrilling ride with characters you can really relate with and care about. Going Home by Holly Hook was a nice backstory of one of her characters in her Homeworld trilogy.
I found this anthology to be a very quick read and each book by itself can fit in at break time or whenever you have time. A great read for someone always on the go, but wanting to enjoy good quality stories.
I voluntarily received and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. (I bought myself a copy to reread these stories again!)
