    Great collection This collection is a nice introduction to a bunch of great series. I'm glad I picked this up, as it had given me a chance to follow these authors' works.

    Previously read 'The Emperor's Edge' and 'Fire & Ice' (which are not reviwed again here). A bit of a mixed bag - though of the six new (to me) novels I only one found to be less than good; there are two others I'm inclined to follow up and three I'm ambivalent about. 'The Book of Deacon' is a long set-up for the series. We meet Myranda and learn something of her background as we follow her misadventures as a lone, unwelcomed traveller who after a fortuitous discovery becomes pursued by musterious Previously read 'The Emperor's Edge' and 'Fire & Ice' (which are not reviwed again here). A bit of a mixed bag - though of the six new (to me) novels I only one found to be less than good; there are two others I'm inclined to follow up and three I'm ambivalent about. 'The Book of Deacon' is a long set-up for the series. We meet Myranda and learn something of her background as we follow her misadventures as a lone, unwelcomed traveller who after a fortuitous discovery becomes pursued by musterious enemies. She is joined, briefly by the equally mysterious 'Leo' before they part company and... essentially everything falls apart for a while. The plot gets complicated by a baby dragon, a group acting as a resistance to the ongoing war, a mage - and after the war intrudes and it becomes clear that Myranda is still being pursued by one of the armies there is an extended respite in a hidden enclave where some things are explained before the of the book as Myranda leaves the safe haven. There is a lot of background, there is an intriguing magic system but esssentially this is standard fantasy quest fare (not necessarily a Bad Thing!) In 'The God Decrees' Julia, an aspiring Olympics gymnast is torn from her world by a mage desperate for help in a war. She finds herself in a mediaeval world where only men are magic users men - and then discovers she has powerful abilities in that area herself. A very good start to the series. 'Defender: Sanctuary Series 1' is less satisfying, not necessarily because of the subject/protagonist (mercenary warrior engaged in adventure/quests) but because Our Heroes fight with magical healing support so that they face little permanent damage (and it's even possible to be resurrected for a short period after dying - not that death doesn't occur) which rather takes some of the risk out of things. There's a lot left unexplained at the end of this first book - unsure if I'll follow on. 'Draykon' is a different matter - an unusual world, part in perpetual Daylight, part in the Dark and with several interesting animals as well as humanoids with different abilities and skills; magic is practiced by different groups (sorcerors, summoners); it's possible to pass from the Seven realms to the Upper and Lower 'Levels' (a bit of a misnomer, it seems, by the end of this book. The titular 'Draykon' is (no real surprise) the dragon equivalent. More than intriguing enough to want to read more. 'Lost City' is a largely successful humorous quest for the lost city of Nar, unusual in that the quest is undertaken by a party of dwarves (dwarfs?) - aided on occasion by a friendly dragon. At least one of the characters appears in an earlier book - which is referenced several times but isn't required reading. 'Reversion: The Inevitable Horror' is a different kind of quest - more of a horror drive than a voluntary journey. Samuel wakes with a makeshift rope around his neck and no memory of where he is or how he got there and who he is. In a few short days (though as even time seems malleable it may be days or months) he meets three others in a weirdly decaying landscape before explanations are given. However - the explanation is not the end but fortunately the next volume is readily available. The other two novels in this collection aren't reviewed here as I have read and reviewed them previously.

    I liked all the books except the last one. I couldn't finish it. The plot didn't seem to be going anywhere interesting so I just stopped. In fact, based on the synopsis alone, I'd been putting it off, reading instead the sequels to other books in this box set. When I finally started to read it, my fears were vindicated. That brought down the rating for this box set from a four to a three.

    This collection is useful!! I managed to find several authors worth following through this collection. More often in collections I find the annoying, not the good. Give this one a try!

    Lindsey Buroker's Emperor's edge was the only book I could get through of this group and I loved it. However it is available free as a stand alone.

    What I like about this collection is that it has introduced me to some new authors as well as a couple of authors I've already read. Would recommend the book to those who like me enjoy a variety of genre.

    Not what I expected These would be good stories if I was into fantasy. I assumed from the title that some of them were fantasy but all of them are. If you enjoy that genre this is the book for you

    A medially of stories Honestly, this took me longer to read then I ever expected. Some of the stories rushed by while others did not go quickly. But, they were interesting.

    I like most of the works in here but as with all anthologies I liked some more than others. "The God Decrees", "Draykon" and "Lost City" were my favorites. "Defender" and "Fire and Ice" I finished but did not overly enjoy either. "Reversion: The Inevitable Horror" I could not get through. I only read 3 chapters but I already knew it was just not a story that interested me. "The Book of Deacon' I had already read and highly recommend the entire series. "The Emperor's Edge" was good, but not memorable I like most of the works in here but as with all anthologies I liked some more than others.

    The reason it is taking me so long to read this book, is that when I read one of the novels included that spark my interest, I stop reading this one and go read all the books included in the fantasy I just finished. So far that is 3 epics from this book that I have gone on and payed for the rest. Having a compilation like this for readers to get to know these books was really a good idea. I would not have found such great stories otherwise. My favorite so far is the Sanctuary Series.

    All novels in this book were great and worth reading. I especially liked Reversion and Defender. I am certain that I am going to grab other books of all authors of this book soon.
