My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This gets extra points just for being the best anthology I've ever read, perhaps because it's not *precisely* an anthology--each story really builds upon the others and requires them to move the characters forward, which is awesome. This should be required reading for authors seeking to do linked anthologies. Each story was a little gem--with a short novella, conflict has to be very, very light, but each of the six characters is still deeply nuanced. I'm really, really, really hoping that they do another joint offering.
