    My initial thought was that this was surprisingly good Okay, I didn t say initially surprisingly good because I thought the story was going to suck, or because I ve never liked anything written by this author, but because a it s a pretty short story, and b I thought it was 12 separate even shorter stories.I traditionally don t like short stories, and I picked this up even though I thought it was an anthology because a Goodreads group I m in was reading it So I thought, what the heck, it My initial thought was that this was surprisingly good Okay, I didn t say initially surprisingly good because I thought the story was going to suck, or because I ve never liked anything written by this author, but because a it s a pretty short story, and b I thought it was 12 separate even shorter stories.I traditionally don t like short stories, and I picked this up even though I thought it was an anthology because a Goodreads group I m in was reading it So I thought, what the heck, it couldn t hoit What surprised me is, despite the above, I really liked it The twelve stories were interwoven into one cohesive story that spanned decades It s the same story, just told from different points of view It did get a little glitchy at times spanning different time periods, and the adjustment at times was a bit rocky, but overall I didn t have a problem figuring out and following the timeline Each POV is told in first person While that may seem awkward and questionable, for me it worked because you spend so little time with each character, the first person POV gives you better insight into their thoughts and feelings I liked being able to get into each character s head for our short visits.If you re looking for a quick, engaging fantasy, give this one a try
