"A great story, and set in a difficult-to-understand land of Druma. This really brought the country and its politics to life for me, as well as having great characters and action!"

A Contract Between Thieves

"This was easily my second favorite of the anthology. Feni agrees to help Raf, a long-time acquaintance, complete a contract after a game of cards. The result is a romp through an alchemist’s laboratory that neither of them will forget and one of them may not survive. Though it started a bit slow, there was a great sense of character and place and adventure in this one that was missing from so many of the other stories in the anthology. This story, placed near the end of the anthology, totally saved the day for me. Stephanie: You rock. I want more."

The Cicadas of Okinawa

"This story was unsettling, but I enjoyed it. I thought the atmosphere was well-created, inescapable war and heat and death juxtaposed with beautiful descriptions of the cicadas."

To Kill a Thief

"Steph, you knock my socks off. I loved this conclusion to Loree's story from The Crimson Pact Volume Three. Her fantasy world is amazing, with a cool magic system, and memorable nuanced characters--reminds me of Jimmy the Hand from Raymond Feist's Silverthorn in the Riftwar series and Vin from Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn. I am not the only reader who's said she would love to see Stephanie write a novel series about this female thief! I was so glad to see these characters make an appearance in Patrick Tracy's "Sealed with Fire" at the end of the book--more on that epic story shortly."
