'Myths & Magic: A Science Fiction and Fantasy Collection'
Myths & Magic: A Science Fiction and Fantasy Collection - Kerry Adrienne,Bec McMaster,Felicia Beasley,L.B. Gilbert,Jade Kerrion,Anne Renwick,Lisa Lace,Melle Amade,Michael Trozzo,Lily Thorn,Ilana Waters,Erin Richards,R. E. Vance,Cheri Schmidt,Tristan Hunt,CC Dragon,Bradon Nave,D.A. Roach,Katalina Leon,Boone Brux,

'Myths & Magic: A Science Fiction and Fantasy Collection' is a box set by various authors.
Kin Selection by L.B. Gilbert is the book I am reviewing. This is the story of Denise Hammond and Yogi Kane.
Denise and her group save Chimps and such for animal testing as such and on one of those missions she see a wolf cub who she can't help but take with her. Since the chimps have places they can ship them to save their lives they have no such place for a wolf cub so she takes him. But Denise soon learns he is also a baby.
Yogi has been asked to find a baby / cub named Oliver from the rival Avery's Pack. Oliver's father past awhile back and now the mother and Oliver a missing. Yogi finds the mother has died and Oliver missing but it doesn't take him long to find the baby with Denise. Yogi kidnaps her and the baby and takes them back with him.
I enjoyed their story!

Surprise!
Magic Undying (Dragon's Gift: The Seeker... Magic Undying (Dragon's Gift: The Seeker Book 1) - Linsey Hall

I started reading this because it was free from Amazon Prime. I was only a little way in and already thinking, "Great, another book where the heroine loses all her brains because the hero it a hottie". Multiple lines talking about how gorgeous he is and how much she's attracted to him did nothing to dispel this. Then I read, "So he liked good music. I didn't want to like that about him, but I did. Of course. Because I was an idiot easily swayed by my hormones." And with that, the whole book flips. I started noticing that she actually talked to people rather than trying to do everything herself in a misguided notion of protecting friends. I saw that people acknowledged and relied on her abilities and she was neither surprised or embarrassed by this. I saw that it wasn't just sexual tension that drives the story or the interaction between the main characters. The plot wasn't complex and the writing was not Tolkien level intensity, but the story was good and the characters engaging. The one thing I had a major issue with was that interspersed in the book were references to the past that made me feel like I was reading the second book in a series and was missing the background of the first book. That was rather jolting but hopefully the episodes are explained more fully in the following books and with a more natural transition during the story.

magic and meyhem!
To Tame A Wild Heart - Gwen Mitchell
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Audrey escapes from the asylum holding her and lands right into another kind of jail. Faced with getting free and losing her powers, or staying in the coven to learn all about her powers and the Zyne, Audrey decides to bide her time, learn what she can, get fit and healthy and THEN excape and go back for the child she needs to save. Corvin's mother is head of this coven. He tends to the birds and is happy, for the most part. Being given a novice to train, or losing his precious birds is a bit of a no brainer, but Audrey is almost as broken as eagle currently under his care. He's gonna need to tend this wild one very carefully. The overwhelming feeling I have for this book is this: Harry Potter for grown ups! I found myself comparing, at many points along the way, details that while not EXACTLY from the Harry Potter books, they have obviously been INSPIRED by them. BUT!!! This is not a bad thing, Its just what I need to say, and its all about saying what you thought of a book, and this is what I thought! Getting over that, though and I really REALLY loved it! Audrey is a free spirit who knew she could do things others couldn't but didn't know why. Corvin is a bit of a recluse and thinks more of his animals than anyone else. An odd pair, but since Corvin's mother is an Oracle, I'm sure she saw this coming. I loved Audrey's fight or flight response to most things, but having got this far alive, its to be expected. She does tame it a little as the book progresses but it never fully goes away. Once Corvin is made to see the error of how he'd been treating Audrey in his care (oh, not badly, not at all, just enough) he begins to see the real Audrey, the one who he falls in love with. There is much going on, and not all is sorted. That Huhlwen (I think that's how it was spelt!) has a hidden agenda, getting Audrey to tie to him. Corvin won't be happy when he finds out. I'm assuming that there are other sorcerers out there, and enslaved witches. Just deadly enough and sexy enough, with all the major players having a say, and you know how happy that makes me feel! Oh, and special mention to the side kick crow, who really should have had a say, cos his antics did make me chuckle! This is billed as book one, and I can't wait to read the next one! First I've read of this author too. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Great take on the Cycle
Norse Mythology - Neil Gaiman

It was gloriously awesome. How much of the merit goes to Gaiman and how much always belonged to the myth compendium has little bearing in my enjoyment.

The stories are tall tales indeed: huge, fun, magical, gruesome. The characters are as great as flawed: Odin lies, cheats, seduces and steals; Thor is a block-head to which every problem is a nail (hah); and Loki is the charming psychopath. All this is more or less merit of the Edda.

The book is a fast read, very approachable, very engaging, and the order of presentation and building makes it easy to follow the names and elements. The text is cheeky, and has many little asides that had me in stitches, turning wistful and lyrical as we come to the bittersweet end. All this, plus some nuances to the dialogues that made them hilarious (or creepy, or bittersweet), was Gaiman I reckon.

It is a book I want to buy. I want to re-read it, whole and by pieces. Have it as a reference. Read from to my children. Also, as an object, it is a beauty. Full stars.
