    Some of these books are three star worthy, some 4, some 5. The collection as a whole get 5 stars because there are so many books in this collection I still haven't finished it. The value of all these books for 99 cents in amazing, and one book covers that value, but there are 14 of them. I enjoyed this collection and I am glad I was introduced to so many great series.

    I loved some, I liked some and some were just not for me. I reviewed a few, rated all but feel like rating a bundle of books is a little like rating all the Chinese restaurants in one town. There are good, bad and middling...

    this is by far one of the best deals you could find. Each of these novels is well worth a read and many will be a great way to get into a new series. Many of the books lean more than a bit towards the YA-fantasy camp, which isn't really my preference. still though, you can't beat it

Blades of Magic: Book I - I forgot I was reading an anthology so was quite pleased when my Kindle indicated I was only 6% into the story. I thought I had much more to read so was brought to an abrupt halt when it ended. I liked the main characters; Sara Fairchild, a battle mage and Ezekiel, a curator of magical artifacts. Sara's father had been the highest ranking officer in the Empress' army. For reasons unknown he became a deserter and was subsequently executed. Sara and her mother lose everything - home, possessions, friends. Although Sara is the best fighter in the city, she can no longer compete in contests where she could win prize money. She is forced to look for employment at the wharf where she is hired to guard the aforementioned magic artifacts. This is where she and Ezekiel become acquainted. Ezekiel becomes Sara's only friend and accompanies her on her quest to clear her father's name. 2. Concealed Power - This story reminds me in the most unpleasant way of Angela's Ashes where adults take advantage of defenseless children. Adenine's parents perform unspeakable acts upon her and at this point in the story, chapter 12, I haven't found out why. At least in Angela's Ashes we knew the cause was a drunken git of a father. Adenine's parents seem to love her but so far their actions are inexplicable. I suppose the title should give me a clue but it hasn't been revealed. This is not a happy tale. I now know the circumstances that led up to Adenine's situation. It seems like the more she understands, the worse off her life becomes. Only to chapter 29 so hope she will get a break before this ends. Nope, story doesn't get any more hopeful. There are four more books in this series but I don't think I will be reading them. I'm an escapist reader and want to be entertained, not depressed. 3. Shadowlight Saga, Book One: Bonded - I enjoyed this story even though one of the main characters, Erik, irritated me no end. He acted like a pompous ass the majority of the time and only various crises had him behaving in a heroic and non-selfish manner. I truly feel that Emma could do better. One aspect that I found interesting was that our heroes all seemed to develop hereto-forth unknown magical abilities. All of them. I'm glad that this tale was resolved and not leaving a cliff hanging ending. I probably will seek out the other books in this series. 4. The Sorcery Code: Volume 1 - I read this and its sequel in 2016. I gave it five stars at the time. 5. Anathema - Oh my. I really did like this story and am positive I will read the rest of the series (I hope its been completed. Note to self: Check this out) The characters are introduced in such a way that you have a good grasp of their personalities. Our main protagonist, Reychel, has been a slave her entire life. She is literally kept in the dark and rarely allowed to view outdoors through a window, much less actually go outside. She is occasionally brought before her owner for intimate tête-à-têtes. She has no idea why she is singled out, although this will be explained further into the story. There is fear, hope, deceit, betrayal and other emotions that make this a well-rounded tale. There is even a little romance/jealousy to pique your interest. Looking forward to finding out what happens next. 6. A Legacy of Light: The Dragon War, Book One - I am going to preface this by saying when I saw the author is Daniel Arenson I hesitated a bit. Not to say I don't like his work because I do. My initial introduction to his writing was the six Moth books. I have purchased Requiem trilogies and read several. Unfortunately, the descriptions of graphic violence in the last one I read caused me to set the book aside. I'm not sure where this story falls in Requiem's history but it seems that the entire populace has the ability to turn into dragons but only those who are members of or employed by the royal family are allowed to do so. All children are conscripted into the army to fight the resistance movement when they turn 18. Tilla is the first of our characters to be taken. Her best friend, Rune, is a few months younger so won't be taken until the next roundup. The emperor's evil daughter, Shari, wants Rune for an unknown reason. Her sister, Kaelyn, is a member of the Resistance and manages to abscond with Rune before Shari can get to him. Finished this last night and although there was a lot of violence, being war and all, none of it was of the making me want to puke variety. It turns out I do have The Dragon War trilogy (also Dawn of Dragons, Requiem for Dragons, Future Chronicles, Dragonlore and the 6 Moth books) Chances are I will read the rest of this trilogy at a later date. 7. Jade: A Book of Deacon Sidequest - What a joy of a story about the bond between a girl and her dragon. It touched my heart. It was nice that this story was complete unto itself but what happened to the elf? Why was he trying to eliminate Jade? Halfax's brother was supposed to be guarding the Prince's family. Later in the story Halfax moves into in the brother's former cave. What happened to the brother? Inquiring minds and all that... Perhaps some of the other Deacon Sidequest books will address these questions. 8. Witch Hunt: A Gryphonpike Chronicles Novella - The characters were kind of glossed over in this story but may have been explored in more detail in other volumes. I got the impression that this adventure occurred somewhere in the middle of the Gryphonpike's history. The main character is an elemental elf who has been banished from her world and forbidden speech or actually any kind of communication with others. The group comes across a town which is being destroyed by two witches. There were originally three but the townsfolk managed to eliminate one. The Gryphonpikes are enlisted to exterminate the remaining two. Not a bad story but I didn't find it very compelling. 9. Encrypted - Am I the only one who finds it incredible that two people who are virtual prisoners with execution hanging over their heads find the time and wherewithal to fall in love? This read more like a romance novel than sci fi or fantasy. However, there was alien technology involved so I guess that's why it can be included in this collection. Which bears the question, why did the aliens leave so much behind? They were supposedly there to develop weapons so they could re-take their home planet. Seems like they forgot to finish packing. The caves in this story reminded me of another book - I think it was in the Shannara Chronicles. I would have liked a little more detail on what happened to the survivors of the expedition, especially the fate of that nasty female telepath. When Tikaya arrived back to her homeland, did she have the birth control device removed so she and Rias could procreate a bunch of little towheads as she had fantasized? Maybe this is addressed in one of the publications that continue this series but I'm really not that curious. Oh, and the assassain. He was one of the more interesting characters and I wouldn't mind having found out more about how he came to be. 10. Land of Shadows - Had to pass on this one. The scenes involving the prisoners/slaves pissing and defecating themselves due to terror were a bit much. Still, I soldiered on until the demon in charge started hacking off body parts with a knife which looked like a prelude to a long and tortuous session. I am rather curious about the warrior and the female who wields knives so effectively so I may go back, skip the gross (to me) parts and finish the story. I'm not making any promises though. April 2018 Update: Somewhere along the line I had purchased The Gatekeeper Omnibus 1-3 and have been reading it for a couple of days. Apparently my sensibilities have hardened over the past few months as I haven't run across any scenes that would cause me to abandon reading this. (I did skip the demon's torture of one of his "pets" which is why I stopped reading the first time) Of course, I just finished the first three books of The Pearls of Wisdom Saga which contain enough torturous situations to turn anyone's stomach. I did notice that Jade's character and her knife-wielding skills seemed awfully familiar, which is what inspired me to find out where I may have run into her before. And thus, the update. 11. The White Tree: The Cycle of Arawn, Book I - Our antihero, Dante, is predictably hard to like. His motive to somehow acquire magical abilities by studying the volume, The White Tree, is ambiguous at best. Yes, he saw a man bring a dead dog back to life but is that really all it took to set him off on his now murderous quest? I'm going to read a bit more but may not finish this. Why was Dante able to develop magical powers just by reading the book? Does he have some kind of special heritage or could anyone who read it acquire those abilities? I did end up reading the whole story but don't think I'm inclined to read more volumes. 12. The Jewel of Danenos: A Lee Starfinder Adventure - This was a super quick read. Kind of a typical spoiled brat being reined in by faithful servant scenario. Story was entertaining but too short to really invest much in the characters. 13. Ren of Atikala - I was initially put off by Ren and her comrade(s) but grew to like them quite a bit before the end. I believe the next installment should continue to be interesting as Ren discovers more about who she is and how the kobolds can learn to interact with other species without killing each other. That is if she can abandon the "monsters (everyone who is not a kobold) must die" mentality that reasserted itself at the end. I found it a bit disconcerting that she immediately used the moniker of "Father" when they met. Prior to then I had the impression that kobolds were hatched, named and grew up in a colony type situation with others of the same age with little or no parental involvement. 14. Mistress of Masks: Catalysts of Chaos Book 1 - The concept of someone living in an underground crypt to maintain its contents was eerily captivating. I'm not sure if the keeper ever went aboveground or remained there until he was replaced. He must have somehow obtained supplies. But that's not what's bugging me about this story so far. *Spoiler* Eydis altered Fenric's facial features so he looked like Orrick. Why? Fenric was allowed into the prison as he was the known executioner. He kept his face shielded until he was inside Orrick's cell and then proceeded to swap clothing so that Orrick could escape. Fenric committed suicide before Orrick had even left the cell, whereupon his features returned to their normal appearance. His face was never observed by anyone besides Orrick so what was the point of this transformation? It didn't seem to serve a purpose. The keeper finding a hidden key and unlocking a forbidden gate seems all too predictable. It appears that he could have relocked the door before its prisoner escaped. The key wasn't all that well hidden since its location and a warning not to use it was revealed in an ancient text. The keeper had read the text in the past and was able to locate it again almost immediately. He should have locked the door instead of refreshing his memory. How does Rathnaker get wind that there are those out to oppose him? Not only that but where they can be located so he can set his minions upon them. I suppose it goes without saying that he has supernatural powers since he has risen from the dead. I also wondered a bit about Eydis knowing to refer to Rathnaker by name. I did not go back to check but am assuming that she caught his name when she saw him in a vision. So, finished this last night and once again Kindle made it too easy for me to purchase the next books in the Catalysts of Chaos series. It appears I'll be reading them before any of the other sequels or books that I already have. Overall I give this collection a 4.5.

    This book is worth the price I paid. (.99) There are some really good stories, and some not so good. It took me a long time to read through it, as I only read it between other books, and while traveling. There are stories that I have added the second book in the series to my list for reading. Others, it doesn't bother me to see how the story progresses. I can't really review any in particular as it's been so long that I don't remember enough about most of them to properly review.

    K.J. Colt - Concealed Power 2 stars What a frustrating story, Adenine is blinded for a secret reason finaly revealed at the end of the book.... not enough clues along the way. Dima Zales & Anna Zaires - The Sorcery Code 4 stars "Blaise’s magical creation is not an object of sorcery, but a beautiful woman who’s unlike anything their world has ever seen" Good story, easy to read - I'm onto the next one!

    I so wish we could use percentage of stars. This collection deserves at least 4.5 stars. I came to know several new "favorite" authors while reading it. I have read many anthologies over the years but I think this is the first one in which I have enjoyed every story included. If you like fantasy, this is a must read book. One note, the books in this collection are firsts in their own series so you will be looking for the next in most cases.

    The Good, the Bad, and the OK. Be prepared. Some stories of this collection held me in thrall and I couldn't turn pages fast enough. Two were so mediocre I didn't finish them. (So many books, so little time). The rest were entertaining. 14 books for 99¢, a good deal and I have new authors and story lines to follow.

    Wide coverage of the Fantasy genre Each story is well written, the characters are well developed, and each story is engrossing and easy to understand. I think these stories will be of interest to a wide range readers.

    There were a (very) few gems in this. Most were unreadable. Encrypted was superb. Ren of Atikala was very enjoyable. None of the rest were memorable at all. Even though it costs more, I suggest getting those two titles separately and skipping the rest.
