It was a bit ridiculous, anyway, this girl talking about how 17 is about being naive and totally allowed to blunder around and be stupid just because she is young. And it's sweet how the story ended, with the guy who sang about his long-lost MP3) and pined after her.
But the story is still a bit overdone, and just It was a great look into Delauney's love affair with Rolande and revealed some beautiful secrets about how Delauney ticks and why he does the things he does in Kushiel's Dart. I really did enjoy looking into his secret life that he never reveals to Alcuin and Phedre. Lee is a wonderful writer and she has beautiful prose, but the mix of the old and new stories didn't quite work. It's a good premise, but I couldn't help but think of that Lake House movie, and considering that movie was very "eh," it's not a compliment to it's story.
I didn't really see the point of the destroyed city or the souls changing bodies. The only part I did "get" was were the two lovers finally coming together over time and space, but it was an awful way to get there.
A guy demanding to marry a girl because he's as good as she'll ever be offered, because she's scarred and lame. Okay, the kid took a chance, because he didn't think he was good enough before and thought she'd be more forgiving, since she is now flawed as well. I don't think the insults had a place, and even if he was really her knight in shining armor, his heart really wasn't in the right place. And the "demon" that only was one in her dreams, didn't really fit. You only know he's a demon because of the story's title, the rest of the tale, he's an evil wizard.
It could have been a good story I'll be generous and rate it a 3. I'd borrow it from the library if you're curious about the stories. I really only bought it for 1 out of the 5 stories, the rest I could have done without.

Good mythology, though. Robin Hobb's "Blue Boots" was a sweet retelling of Cinderella. It's got well developed subtly for such a short story and a satisfying, happy ending shocking for Hobb, I know!

Good as a standalone but better if you've read the Kushiel trilogy, as it gives a personal view to events that we had only a glimpse of previously.
And while I love science fiction, the story was How many times were they in different bodies? Were their previous loves them or not?
What actually happened to the planet? I liked the protagonist but didn't buy her relationship at all I thought it was the whole collection, which I would still like to read. I would recommend this collection for Hobb and Carey fans; the other stories were only okay but didn't dissuade me from keeping the longer collection on my TBR list. Nov 29, Theresa rated it really liked it. I very much appreciate adding this book to my collection, having avidly read the previous books edited by George R R martin.
Blue Boots, Robin Hobb, I have read other stories by this author but found this one to be very appealing, maybe the reference to blue boots just has an emotional tug on my heart, or just the fact that a minstrel can find true love, and despite rumor and intrigue find nobility in a young orphan girl.
In the end a very moving story. You, and you alone, Jacqueline Carey, i am amazed by this story, lost in its world and fiction. Wow, what a story to draw you into this world created by this otherwise unknown author to me. I have found transcendent her love and devotion that she gives her main character, at first I was surprised it was a male character, but to see a Greek novelty in the story, and a love story that transcends gender and station in a world of kings and queens.
Told at the moment of his death as he remembers his one and only love, and how they came apart and rejoined over periods of time, and place is truly inspiring. Creating a fluid but confusing sequence of events that are drawn over themselves. It results in a number of confusions about which character is which in the story.
Demon Lover Cecelia Holland,begins very erotically similar in nature to a Peirs anthony Relationship book, with guilty pleasures making the character upset. But retells from the beginning how the character found herself faced with a lusty demon. Now its up to her and her friend to find a solution, and free themselves from the green tower. Dec 09, Heart1lly rated it it was ok. I don't know what I was expecting from this book. I guess something better than just "okay"?
I am a big fan of some of the contributing authors of this book I was very interested in Tanith Lee. Unfortunately her story was the one I skipped after about 15 pages or so, I just couldn't get into the writing style.
It's sad because I really was excited to read this book, but it fell seriously short for me. George R. Martin edited it, and I l I don't know what I was expecting from this book. Martin edited it, and I love him, but I'm not a romance genre reader and I often times roll my eyes at anything romancey as far as books go.
Still, gave it a shot. I think a large part of the problem is that none of the love interests in the books had any redeeming qualities.
The love interest from the first novel stalks a woman and gives her some story about how he needs to have sex with her -that- night or else he'll die because of a family curse. And then she agrees, even though throughout the entire story she was complaining about how much she didn't like him! But then all of a sudden she had a change of tune?
What the crap? In another story, the woman is so distraught she foolishly slept with a guy she knew she shouldn't have slept with but I'm only seventeen, teehee! I'm so foolish! They end up together in the end. I have no idea why.
In another story the woman encounters a fat man who demanded she marry him and how he'd be doing her a favor if she did because she was too ugly for anyone else what a nice guy! He turns into a handsome man later in the story through magical means and then it's like, oh wow!
He's fantastic! Let's have babies! I think the only story I actually really enjoyed was the one from Jacqueline Carey because it gave a decent amount of back story for Anafiel in Kushiel's Dart. If you're a fan of that book, you might like this short story Mar 14, Diayll rated it it was amazing Shelves: read-by-aimeekay. I have to admit the only reason I jumped at the chance to read and review Songs of Love Lost and Found was because it has a story by Tanith Lee in it.
She is one of my all time favorite writers. The prodigal is welcomed home The sinner now a saint For the God who died came back to life And everything is changed. Oh death, where is Your sting? Oh fear, where is Your power? For the mighty King of kings has disarmed you Delivered and redeemed Eternal life resounds Oh praise His name forever.
