I’d never heard of Kate Elliott before this delicious collection–I know, I know, shame on me! But I think it’s pretty safe to say that she’s definitely got my attention; I will most definitely be looking into her other work, especially the forthcoming Court of Fives! But what refreshed me most about this collection was that Kate Elliott is a woman, and writes from the point of view of multiple ones. Women can be titans in the writing industry, and she’s part of the proof!
The bottom line: Though I’d never heard of Kate Elliott before this, I’m now definitely a fan! A feminist titan in the fantasy/science fiction industry, Elliott’s writing is just like magic!
