In "Reaper Girl" by Erin Zarro, Leliel is a Reaper who makes one little mistake, and has to escort a man through the Underworld to try and rectify it. Rick's young and handsome, and if Leliel is successful, he'll have his life back. This is a story about facing your fears, and demonstrates how truly powerful love can be.
"The Raja and the Madman" by Siri Paulson, is an exploration of commitment. Karnavati volunteers to serve the Madman, a mysterious fellow who lives in exile. She does it to earn money to pay for her mother's care, though over time the reasons for her service change. I thought this was a lovely, romantic story, with an exotic setting and beautiful descriptions.
And finally, Kit Campbell's "Drifting" is sort of a coming-of-age story. Maddie's been laid off - again - and goes to her Grandmother's house to figure out what to do next. While she's there, she inherits the family key, which sends her on a magical journey to save a Prince. She's faces a series of challenges and is repeatedly forced to decide between right and wrong, and in the end her success has as much to do with finding herself as it does with any rescue.
These are unique, compelling stories, and I highly recommend this anthology.
