Book Review: Shards and Ashes
Various Authors (edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong
PUBLISHED: February 2013
PREMISE: Several authors write short stories set in dystopian worlds
MY REVIEW: Like all short story collections, this one had a few good stories, one or two really memorable ones, and other just so so stories. It was a bit of a mixed bag really though I did find more stories I liked in this one then usual since all the stories were done by authors I like.
Most memorable ones were probably the one by Veronica Roth and the one that Beth Revis did that took place in the Across the Universe that gave some insight to Orion. Other likable ones include the ones by Armstrong, Marr, and Stohl. Most of the others were okay but too short for me to really form an attachment too.
Honestly, this is one of those books you probably already know if you want to read or not. It will probably ultimately depend if you like the authors in question and dystopian stories.
WHO SHOULD READ: fans of the authors in the collection, dystopian fans
MY RATING: Three and a half out of Five mixed bags
