Books: Harvest Moon

Harvest Moon was a compendium of three novellas by Mercedes Lackey, Michelle Sagara, and Cameron Haley. The Lackey story was set after Sleeping Beauty and involved screwups around Persephone's abduction by Hades. It was an ok story, but I think I'm just burned out on Lackey for a while. The Sagara story was how Kaylin's failed assassination of the Hawklord gets her into the Emperor's Hawks, and her first two days there. I'm a big Kaylin fan, but even so, this story was a bit thin. All it did was provide some desired back story on Kaylin, Tain, and Teela. As for the third story, it was totally foreign to me. I don't know the Haley universe, so I had no backstory for the characters. That story was interesting enough, and had a neat twist on death curses and angels, but not riveting.

Well that's good to know. I can cross it off my list :)

Eh, I suppose it depends on what you want, and how much free time you are looking to spend. If you get a chance to borrow the book, you will probably enjoy it. The Lackey story was funny (as they often are) and her juxtaposition of Norse and Greek was amusing. The Sagara story was good enough, and helped out a lot with understanding how/why Kaylin joined the hawks.

I didn't like the Lackey story that much - it was okay. I like background stories, so Kaylin's story was pretty neat for me to read. Cameron Haley I found interesting - I had actually just picked up Mob Rules from the library and enjoyed reading it, so it was new and interesting enough.

I just delved into Jocelynn Drake's Dark Days series - mmmm, brain candy!!
