Certain books can turn out to be quite deceiving, but I mean that in the most positive way I can, because Love Minuets initially seemed to be a musical book or some kind of poetry. Indeed it has a poetic quality to it that people fond of the the kind of imagery an accomplished author can make is the very reason why we read books in the first place.
The stories are short, diverse and very hard to predict in terms of content. But each and every one is enjoyable.
The Veil of Time, The Duke's Muse and Forgotten Memories were amongst my favourites. It is hard to pick an outright favourite because of the diverse stories on offer.
I believe with this collection that the author could reward her current fanbase whilst attracting new ones.
If you like fantasy, it's here. If you like heart warming and gentle tales of love, it's here. If you like to read something truly leftfield, it's here too.
I was surprised at the depth of many of the stories, contrasting with those that were lightweight and I believe intentionally so.
Often an author will want to write a true one of a kind book. I think this is the kind of thing we as readers look for.
