My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 unicorns - I really liked it!

**Received this ebook in exchange for an honest review as part of the Clean Teen Street Team

First, I think it is amazing that all of these stories came about based on five pictures. They are all very creative and very different. It amazes how different each of them is yet some originated from the very same picture.

Drabbles are new to me being 100 words exactly, but I don't connect to them as much as I do novellettes and novellas. They were still cute though.

There was one story I didn't connect with because it didn't do anything for me, but with as many stories that are in this who cares if there is one that isn't your cup of tea. And I'm not going into any more detail, so onto the ones I think were pure awesomeness (there are 3).

First up! Wind Warrior by Jon Messenger because I read the full version novel and now I understand how the story relates to the picture which is cool. The story was wonderful written and sucked you straight into the fabulous world Jon created. The drama of college and family mixed with people with elemental powers. And you absolutely should read the full novel because it rocks, and you can learn so much more about Xander and his world.

Next was Heartkeeper by B.T. Lyons which I thought was a fascinating world and think it should be some type of series because I would like to read more. It is basically about humans being destructive and the world getting back at humanity until a Covenant is formed and everyone must go through a yearlong evaluation of many trials to see if they are worthy enough to live past 13 years old.

Wonderstruck

A young adult anthology full of drabbles, short stories, novelettes and novellas. This book is so full of creativity and talented authors that there is bound to be something you'll enjoy. From wizards in jars to spirit hearts to bubbles of peace and tranquillity, there are so many stories that jump out that I thoroughly enjoyed the book from start to finish. As with other anthologies, I was expecting to have this read in a couple of hours, but with over 400 pages it is well worth buying. My personal favourite without a doubt is Heartkeeper, and I will definitely be keeping an eye on future works by that author, and several others I had never come across before.

I received an e-copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0x9fb1e930) out of 5 stars Such a fantastic idea! 10 Jun. 2013
By Kristin A. Scearce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Disclaimer: I received an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I'll begin by saying the cover is fantastic; I couldn't stop looking at it! That being said, it's that feeling, the one that every picture has a story to tell, that is the inspiration behind the stories in this anthology. They go from "drabbles" of 100 words to short stories and novellas, and each is as unique as the author who wrote it. It's amazing how so many people can look at the same picture and yet draw a completely different tale from it, all the while bringing those thoughts and images into reality for the reader. I hope this idea will be continued into another book (or several!), using different pictures, or perhaps with each author being given an opening line and having to write a story from that. Loved it!! =)

HASH(0x9fb1e984) out of 5 stars Awesome idea... 5 July 2013
By Sara Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
What happens when you give a bunch of writers some pictures and instructions souding something like "use your imagintion. Tell me what you see."

You get assassins, and wizards, and faeries, and fire, and people who control the elements.

I love the whole "just go with what feels good" approach to storytelling. Some of these stories have been expanded into full length books - which are futrther set up to be made into actual series - I honestly can't wait to read more.

My only setback were the drabbles... Only a few paragraphs written to tell the story. They were well written, imagintive, and nicely done. They just aren't my cup of tea.

It was a cool story about Adain and his friends coming of age :)

My last favorite was A World Unlike Mine by Jocelyn Sanchez because it was a unique world mixing immortals with a more realistic modern world. The story of Tasha will have you rooting for her and loving her as she discovers who she is. This is another one of those stories that I like to be a series. I really connected with the characters.

This really is a great collection of stories, and I only mentioned a few of them. I recommend it to anyone who likes a little magic in their life :)

HASH(0x9f53f1a4) out of 5 stars Jon Messenger has another winner 4 Aug. 2013
By Cheryl Messenger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I purchased this volume in order to continue reading the tales spun by Jon Messenger. . . . one of the contributing authors. His contribution to this anthology centers around "special" individuals who can control the natural elements. In this anthology we meet Xander - a college student who discovers his ability to control the wind. Messenger's contribution to this anthology won first place in the publisher's challenge, with winners promised a publishing contract. "Wind Warrior" (the winning story) was expanded into a full-length novel (available on Amazon), then became one of the finalist in the people's choice award for writers. "Wind Warriors" is the first of a trilogy on the elemental warrior races. Can't wait for the second in the series to be published later this month!
