I love Robin Hobbs fantasy series so this book of short stories was a wonderful gift from a friends but sadly I haven't read it yet! Sometimes you need to be in the mood for short stories and I haven't been in the mood for these recently, but I feel a mood changer coming on! :-)

Do you have any short stories you haven't read yet...?


  1. I have not read any of her short stories, but then I do not love short stories

  2. Oh I have a couple of her dragon books on my shelf begging to be read. I should probably feature them soon. So need to read it and this one sounds good too!
