review 1: I enjoyed this collection pretty thorougly. I won this book through Goodreads giveaways. This is a collection of short stories that have a bit of a darkness to them, a grit. There are a few in this collection that I couldn't quite pinpoint from stories I've heard which made me want to pick up a folk lore book and do some research. I haven't yet, but I'm likely to come back to bookmarks in the future and do so; Which says a lot bc I usually am not sucked in to short stories for much longer than a week or so after I've read them. Enjoyed. Thanks for the opportunity to review.
review 2: I won this book on good reads from first reads. I did finish this about a week ago, but wanted to reflect on the book before doing this review. I loved the cover and the stories
... morewere a little different then what I normally read so I personally had a struggle staying on task with this one. I do not want to disrespect short stories however. This book is well put together and I rated 3 out of 5 stars for this. I am donating this book to a short story program at our local nursing home so that people who are into these kinds of books can truly enjoy this:) If I hear back on any of the stories from the residents I will add to this review at a later date. Thank you to firstreads, and the author as this book is going to be read to so many people and be put to special use. less

Rich, sensory journeys in crystalline detail. Each one seems perfect.

Loved this. "Dead Languages" alone made me want to buy the book.
