I always think I cannot love Tamora Pierce anymore but then she surprises me again and again. This book is a must have if you are a Tamora Pierce fan. Even so, I think these stories may be less clear if you have never read anything by Pierce before. These stories are wonderful. They are vivid and wonderfully written. I particularly enjoyed the story The Dragon’s Tale and Nawat. Many of the stories were set in Tortall or lands that Pierce has created which I obviously enjoyed because I love her stories. I thought the ones that were based on her own experience and set in the real world were equally as interesting though. I would love to read more short stories Pierce has written and if she ever releases more I will pick it immediately.
