Water Tales of Elemental SpiritsThis was the first time I ve ever really read a short story collection so it was a new and interesting experience for me Each story is uniue and from what I can tell takes place in an entirely Nightmares Angels different universe from the last Going through each story was a little bit of a roller coaster because one would leave me feeling really satisfied and the next I wasn t so happy with but then I loved the one after that Whew I need to lieown And there s a really cool but simple artistic thing one at the beginning of each tale THAT I THOUGHT WAS A NEAT DETAILTHERE WAS A I thought was a neat etailThere was a uick way of indicating to the reader which author Robin McKinley or Peter Dickinson had penned the story that followed in the form of the graphic at the start of each tale Overall the writing was beautiful Both writing styles are very similar I Las alas de la mariposa don t know if that was intentional or not but itid add a nice flow to the book on the whole And I am absolutely in love with Robin McKinley s writing She s been my favorite author for a long time now Specifically I Whence the Black Irish of Jamaica? didn t care for Sea Serpent Iidn t like the main god priest character very much and I liked the fact that he won in the end even less On the flip side of that I really liked The Sea King s Son If you re looking for a straight up fairytale love story that s your ticket I appreciated that the protagonists relationship Rich Men, Single Women develops without physical contact for a long time and just focused on talking and sharing and getting to know one another first They re both veryifferent but they admire their ifferences and love one Another For The People They Are Seriously Such A Good for the people they are Seriously such a good story As much as I liked The Sea King s Son I absolutely adored The Water Horse If you liked Uprooted by Naomi Novik which is another fantastic book you should efinitely read allow me to unabashedly pull you towards McKinley s The Water Horse and place it in your hands It s beautiful and sweet and there s a strong thread of self empowerment and community running through itI really enjoyed the experience of reading through this entire book though Each story is really Ten Twentieth-Century Poets different and they re all incredibly wellone Now go read The Water Horse and Uprooted Even when I admire Dickinson s stories I on t love them in the visceral way I love McKinley s so this collection is a little uneven for me Of Dickinson s contributions I like Kraken the most of McKinley smmm hard to say because I love all three but I like Kraken the most of McKinley smmm hard to say because I love all three but A Pool in the Desert because it s partly set in Damar A collection of six stories themed around water written well but not exactly connecting with me The Sea King s Son was easily my favorite with its sweet earnest romance I feel very sure that I ve read this before elsewhere but can t think of where It idn t matter I still liked reading it The rest of the stories.
