4.0 out of 5 stars Same Valdemar story as in "Horse Fantastic", 30 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Werehunter (Mass Market Paperback)
The introduction was kind of out of nowhere, but I enjoyed most of the stories. The SKitty stories needed some help - a little cheesy, and the last one suffered from a severe length limit or something, I don't know. "The Last of the Season" was, um, freaky. It's like, I don't mind that she has a message about child porn and murder and stuff, but - the teddy bear? Yikes. If I were that kid, I'd be almost as scared of the bear as I was of the guy. The Diana Tregarde stories were good. I've never read those books, but now I'm probably going to, 'cause she seems cool. "Wet Wings" was Ms. Lackey's obligatory "I'm so great" bit. A little too transparently self-indulgent, I guess, although she had a point. It just could have been made without the use of a sledgehammer - and definitely without the cheese. "Stolen Silver" was in the Greenberg anthology "Horse Fantastic" several years ago. I spent a while tracking down a copy of that book just for this story... oh well : ) it's worth owning twice over, I guess. Alberich is my favorite Valdemar character. I had a nightmare about "Roadkill" a couple days after I read it - okay, I'm a wimp. But it's creepy. "Operation..." was pretty sweeeeeeet. The beginning was lame, regular Lackey background filler, but once the story got started it was fun. Kinda uneven, with the Disney-esque solutions and dialogue that are what occasionally drives me nuts about Lackey, but there were some great moments. The last two stories were interesting. "Grey" was a little silly, especially in the beginning, but its sequel was better - despite the "you're such good kids for coming to the adults" bit, which made me roll my eyes. But, hey, she wouldn't be Mercedes Lackey if she didn't have those little scenes. I would certainly be interested in reading that book... especially if she tried cutting the stereotypes a little more. Hey, what is UP with all those idiotic ads at the end? They'd be more likely to turn me off to the books they're pushing than convince me to buy them. Oh well. Isn't Amazon cool for giving us all space to babble? ; )

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! A must read for Vademar fans!!, 31 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Werehunter (Mass Market Paperback)
I enjoyed most of the short stories in this book, but it would have been worth the money just to read the Valdemar story. For those of you who have read all the Valdemar books, especially Arrows of the Queen, you need to read this story. It doesn't exactly clear up questions, but it's a story I've wanted to read since I've read those books. I bought the book and read the Valdemar story fist, then went back and re-read it. Now my best friend has the book to read and she has enjoyed it as much as I.

I loved this book! Although some were published before, the stories really get to you. I loved SKitty's stories the most but the others were good too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good collection of hard-to-find short stories., 5 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Werehunter (Mass Market Paperback)
Ms. Lackey's current collection is good. I had seen most, but not all of these stories before and it was especially refreshing to be able to read the S'Kitty tales in order and the Diana Trigarde tales. I really prefer her longer stories and series, but this will due until we are gifted with more from the Valdemar, or other worlds.

By A Customer
This review is from: Werehunter (Mass Market Paperback)
I love Skitty and Scat. Would definitely like to read more about their adventures. Werehunters was a new twist. Thoroughly intriguing. I would read it again.
