'TIL THE WORLD ENDS
One wonderful thing about reading an anthology is that there are complete stories you can read in one sitting. “Dawn of Eden” by Kagawa evokes reader emotions by bringing two genuine characters together in an impossibly fraught situation. The intense story of Mari Thistle and Thorne Goodman, of “Thistle & Thorne,” is captivating, and the world Aguirre creates is one that begs to be revisited soon! And Duvall’s “Sun Storm” is an impressive dystopian tale threaded with hope. Happily, all three stories entertain without sacrificing the character development that can sometimes get short shrift in a novella.
