Review

Tapestry is anthology with four different authors: Lynn Kurland, Madeline Hunter, Sherrilyn Kenyon, & Karen Marie Moning. Each of the stories has a tapestry that plays a prominent role in the story line, hence the title of Tapestry.

I originally bought the book for the Lynn Kurland’s story, To Kiss in the Shadows, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really liked three out of four of the stories in the anthology. The only one I didn’t really like was Into the Dreaming, but even that was well-written, it just wasn’t my cup of tea.

To Kiss in the Shadows is my favorite out of the four. Jason is one of my favorite de Piaget characters and I enjoyed reading his story. He’s a wonderful, humble, well-rounded character. He’s as fierce with a sword as any of his brothers, but unlike those brothers, he doesn’t hide from his compassionate side.

I also really enjoyed Dragonswan by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I was a bit surprised because I don’t usually like her style of writing, but I found this one intriguing and fascinating. It’s well-written, has wonderful characters and is just a joy to read.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes historical romance or paranormal romance.
