For Fans of Kim Harrison
on 14 June 2014
This was a bit of a mixed bag for me; I've rounded up to 4 stars in total from 3.5 average because this is totally worth getting just for the Kim Harrison story.
'Two Ghosts For Sister Rachel' is the best of the bunch and gets 5 stars from me. Kim Harrison just knows how to write an awesome story; this novella manages effortlessly to be heart-warming, funny, action-packed and suspenseful.
'Run, Run, Rudolph' by Lyndsay Sands is a cute Christmas time story and I quite liked how it started. I didn't think it was as funny as it could have been but it was enjoyable enough: 3 stars.
'Six' by Marjorie M. Lui was kind of an odd one. I quite liked the writer's style but the story felt rushed and that seemed to render it kind of pointless: 2 stars.
'The Harvest' by Vicki Pettersson really intrigued me. I am sufficiently interested to check out her Zodiac series now. It seems as if the concept for the series is based on some interesting if apparently complex ideas. Nice story, I just would have liked a few things to be made clearer: 4 stars, and a cool new series for me to check out!
Overall it's a kind of uneven mix. For me it was worth it to read the stories by Kim Harrison and Vicki Pettersson. Mostly I'd recommend it to fans of Kim Harrison; if you love Rachel Morgan you have got to read the story in this book!
