I really enjoyed reading this book.  It had a good balance of ideology and romance. The ideology behind plural marriage is fascinating to me and I love to read about how men balance a relationship with multiple women at the same time.  This book is interesting because it is the females that choose their husbands and even though both women grew up in a polygamy community and were best friends they did not want to be in a relationship together.
How the situation is resolved is very believable, [Read More ...]

He wakes up the next morning to find his wish being haphazardly granted in the form of an insecure elf called Felix, who works as a wish augur and couldn’t bring himself to let Gabe’s wish go unfulfilled.

What a cute and sweet short story.  Ms. Wilde was able to put a good amount of characterization into this short story but due to its length it lacked some of the depth of plot that other stories have.  While I loved Gabriel and Felix I just wanted to delve deeper into their feelings for each other.  I think the reader could have benefited from at least one chapter that was written from Felix’s point of view, just so we could feel more connected to both characters.  I really felt Gabriel’s helplessness and despair but [Read More ...]
