Review by Katy Haye:

Disclaimer: I’m involved in this anthology. I’m not going to review my own story, but if you believe that invalidates my review of other stories it contains, stop reading now!

Delighted you’re still with me! The stories I picked to review are:

Learning to Fly by Laura Diamond
I was so pleased to find and love this! I’ve read two books by Laura and didn’t love them as much as I thought I would. That has niggled like a loose tooth because I feel like I should have adored them, but clearly I just needed to meet her in the right genre.

Learning to Fly is gorgeous – brilliant world-building, and the relationships between the characters were vivid from only a few words. This gave me a brief insight into a world I want to see more of!

Push by Leia Stone
Push had a fantastic sci-fi/paranormal concept – imaginative and engaging. Once again I loved the relationships between the characters, and there was a lot of emotion packed into just a few thousand words.

My only complaint was that I did find the ending a bit too abrupt – or maybe that was just a sign of how immersed I’d become so it was hard to leave!

Underbelly Circus by Hilary Thompson

Wow, this had more twists than a snake with stomach cramps. I loved it – each time I thought I knew what was what it shifted again.

An absolute delight!

The Wrath of the Fury by Michelle Madow

I’ve already dipped my toe in the Elementals world and I loved it, so I dived straight in to this one. The Wrath of the Fury was fast-paced, dramatic and hugely imaginative. I’m going to have to get on with the rest of the series now!

Oh, and did I forget to mention? The whole anthology is available right now for FREE. At that price you really can’t go wrong – grab your copy now!
