Wild Thing (an anthology)
Get swept away by the passions that rise out of the unfathomable depths of the lost city of Atlanits…
I only read one story in this anthology, Wild Hearts in Atlantis by Alyssa Day. I enjoyed the story, even though it was short. It is the story of Bastien finding his soulmate, a half-human, half shape-shifter park ranger. We also learn a little more about the alliances the Atlanteans are forming in the war for humanity’s future.
My complaint though is that I don’t like it when a part of a series, this is the second of the Warriors of Poseidon series, is included in an anthology. I know that way we are introduced to new authors with similar styles, etc., but I only wanted to read the one story. I got the book from the library, but I doubt that I would have bought it if I hadn’t been able to find it. I wouldn’t have spent $14 for one story that was less than 100 pages.
After posting this, I received an e-mail from Alyssa Day that I thought I’d go ahead and share.
“Hi there! I totally agree with your blog – I don’t like paying $14 for a trade paperback either, especially just for one story!! It’s why I begged Berkley to put SHIFTER out in paperback (and they did). Thanks for reading mine, though; I’m glad you liked it! I’m not going to put any more of the warriors in anthologies; though. Too hard to make them fit in such a short space. LOL. Happy holidays!
