The first story in the collection, The Stars’ Chill Song, hits it out of the park with original concepts and amazing world-building. I could see this expanding into a book; in fact, my only problem with the story is that I would have liked to have known even more about this world. I still can’t get the idea of the stars’ song etching glass out of my mind’s eye. I was left wanting even more. (Well, I felt the same about Washing of the Water and Of Grief and Griffin.)
The subjects of the stories in Still Waters range from vampires, princesses made of fire, cats who earn the right to fight beside the warriors of Valhalla, and friends who find a coin that grants them one wish between them to a girl who rescues a griffin (or is it the other way around?). The stories are all fresh and well-written.
There’s grief and joy, loss and discovery, and truths about the human condition. Some of these stories will leave you thinking long after you’ve set the book down. I didn’t notice any problems with editing. I won’t go more in-depth because my review could end up as long as the book. It really is a great collection, though, and I’m glad I got it.
I don’t normally review ARCs, but I learned of Still Waters from an author that I follow (they don’t have a story in this collection), and I wanted to read it because I enjoyed the Luminous anthology so much. I received Still Waters as an ARC, and I then bought it with my own money on pre-order. Yes, I had a free copy but I bought it anyway because I wanted it to read it again and have it load and sync correctly on all my various Kindles. (And, yes, that’s a bit OCD, I know, but there you have it.) My opinions are my own.
The Black Horn - by JA Andrews
I really liked the main character's focus on protecting those she loved. Though this was short, it felt complete and I found it very satisfying. The story was exciting, sweet, and hopeful and I was rooting for Eliese all the way through. I'm not sure I could have asked for more than that.
Of Grief and Griffins - by M.C. Dwyer
I was interested right from the start, and the author did not disappoint. Wren was very easy to relate to. It was a lot of fun seeing the two main characters interact. The world-building was exceptional. There was plenty of fun, but it was exciting and sad as well at times. The conclusion had enough closure for me, though it felt this story could easily be the beginning of something more. I hope it is.
The Ice of Heaven - by Corrie Garret
This was so much more interesting than I gave it credit for in the beginning. I became more and more invested in it as it proceeded. It was a nice fresh take on the Little Mermaid. I would gladly read a whole series based on the two main characters.
Cat Gardian - by John Taloni
The story of Kisa the cat surprised me. I'm not very familiar with Norse mythology and so I didn't anticipate many of the events. When I understood the story that was actually being told I almost had to catch my breath with the emotional impact of it. Anyone who has cared deeply about a pet will connect with this one.
Mr. Taloni, thank you for this lovely tale.
Everyone has their own taste. That's the great thing about anthologies. We can all find something we like. I thought there were plenty of stories that were good in this collection. To me, the ones I mentioned were beyond good.
I reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Runs Like Water - by Chloe Garner - Wonderful story about love and family
The Black Horn - by JA Andrews - where a wonderful, strong heroine risks everything to save those she loves
Cat Guardian - by John Taloni - pet lovers will love this take on the Rainbow Bridge
The Glass Slipper - by Sherwood Smith - where four girls learn the true power of friendship
Eyes Full of the Sea - Yvonne Eliot - Sometimes life is less about what happens and more about how we interpret it
These stories are great bite-sized reads for a lunch hour or when you just want to take a quiet break.
I received a complimentary copy of this anthology from one of the authors. This is my honest, voluntary review
These stories were most interesting at times and had bits of glimmering stardust in some and pearls in others. The meanings and enjoyment taken from a story depends on the person and their mentality and emotional state and past. For me, it was a nice, light reads bringing together the feeling of persistence and some relaxation.
It may not seem like much, for not all the authors are that well known, but all it takes is one story, some words, to change a view.
So give these a try if you wish.
Disclaimer: I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I chose this anthology because I saw C. J. Brightley's name on the cover and I loved the author's previous works. That does not mean I loved this work or hated it because of her. I picked it up because of her, but I enjoyed it at times because of the work of the authors of whose work I read.

It is hard for me to write a review of an anthology. There is just too much to consider and synopses won't do.Read more
