My Review: I was taken aback by the amount of short stories incorporated in this novel. There’s a total of 27 short stories, and each one is so different from the rest. Each of them taking you to different world, including all types of amazing characters. 

I loved them all but my favorite was the first “Lost Lake”, I think because it started it all for me, I couldn’t put it down after that! There’s some known authors, and some new, and I am definitely looking forward to researching these authors and possibly reading more of their work! You will finish this novel with such a positive experience!

Super enjoyable, the writing is incredible, and reading it has been a huge pleasure.

Dive in, I promise as a reader, you won’t regret it!

Preorder it today! On sale May 14th!
