An excellent addition to Pierce's Tortall series. I love learning new things about characters, and several of these stories (the previously published "Elder Brother" and "The Hidden Girl" as well as "The Dragon's Tale", "Nawat", and "Student of Ostriches") do just that. "Huntress" is a relatively new conceit for Pierce--a modern-day story in an urban setting--and very interesting. ( )

I extra loved the huntress story near the end, but all of these are interesting and engaging. ( )

I don't generally enjoy short stories. I think these would have been better if they were recognizable characters or if they had fit into the known timelines better. ( )

What can I say, I love everything Tammy writes. ( )

I liked it a lot. Even though it was short stories so it should have been easy to put down that actually made it harder to put down... just one more... and ops is it 3 am already.
Very enjoyable - especially all the Tortall stories. ( )
