My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Songs of Love and Death is a collection of short stories about star-crossed lovers. Like with any anthology, there are some stand-out stories and some that I could have skipped. It’s hard to review an anthology as a whole because the quality of the stories vary so much, but some of my favorite stories were:
Blue Boots by Robin Hobb
The Marrying Maid by Jo Beverly
The Thing About Cassandra by Neil Gaiman
Hurt Me by M.L.N. Hanover
It’s interesting to see the different authors’ interpretations on the theme. I was pleasantly surprised by Neil Gaiman’s short story. I liked it and I usually don’t like his writing (I know, I know).
