I was not disappointed.
The majority of the stories are penned by A J Dalton. Some are thoughtful, kind, others are little chilling - some based in a real world setting, others fantasy.
Certain ones reveal the 'angel' until the last page, I found some surprising ( this includes the other authors, particular special mention to "The Lucky Ones" - that story had me thinking and just the story world in itself - let alone the 'angels')
I won't go into detail, I think they are more enjoyable not knowing what to expect.
From the Dalton stories, I particularly enjoyed "The Malforbiddance" - the desire of the main character I feel is one we will all share at some point, but to the lengths they went to...?
Overall I think there is a little something for everyone. Pick this book up and let your imagination soar.
I wonder if you will think the same about angels afterwards?
AJ Dalton also clearly likes angels. And knows angels. According to Wikipedia, he has a PhD in fantasy and he is the originator of the ‘metaphysical fantasy’ genre.
The stories he and his peers have gathered here are some of the best angel stories around. Some are dark but some are sweet and affirming, but like all of the angels here (some more obvious than others) they all bring something new to the fore. There’s real craft here, never more evident than in the more chilling tales.
For penitent and sinner alike, these are stories worth your time and money.
Usually in a book of short stories I only like about half of them, but this time the ratio was way more favourable: I enjoyed every single one that Adam wrote, and it was only a couple of the 'guest authors' that fell a bit flat for me (sorry!)
There are stories on all sorts of fantasy, from epic to urban, pure interviews and fairy-tale-like, and then sci-fi too.
Definitely worth a try.
Wow! This collection puts you through all the emotions. My favourite tales are 'The Angel of Skegness' (so bitter-sweet), 'The Watcher' (made me cry) and 'The Angel in Ida's Cupboard' (laughed out loud). But the other stories are just as engaging and interesting too. There isn't a bad one among them. Give it a try!
