A collection of short stories and a novella by the Divine DWJ. Most are short, fun shots - more grounded to the real world than her longer fantasy fare. Some personal moments as well. I enjoyed the novella, Everard's Ride, very much, but I really expected something more from the resolution.
Very few murderous relatives in this one. Plenty of cousins, I mean, but not so much members of the immediate family.
If I had kids, I would probably buy this. It's a hefty volume, and the number of stories makes it well worth cover price.
