I'm glad that Mercedes Lackey revisted her Diana Tregarde and Jenny Talldeer serie(s). The cons to this book is that both stories were to short. I would of liked to of seen them as novels, but in the end something is better than nothing.

Fun read. I loved the Wendigo in the on-line game scenario and have been a fan of the Diana Tregarde series since it was originally published.

Mercedes Lackey has again provided an enjoyable book, well-written and true to form. Her books may not be as challenging as a "hard" science fiction novel might be, but in the "fantasy" genre the books are first-rate. As is true of all of her books, I will be re-reading this book for years to come.

I enjoyed seeing a glimpse of a previous heroine in Misty's anthology, "Trio of Sorcery." It was fascinating to see the different types of sorcery that she wrote in these three very different stories - Native American, contemporary, and techno/cyber magic.

As the other reviewer mentions, this is not a challenging read by any means. However, even in these short stories I was able to lightly connect with the characters and see their worldview, which Mercedes Lackey has always been able to do for me. The three female protagonists are strong and confident women who by no means get easy tickets to overcoming their obstacles just because of their gender - they work, sweat, take risks, and get hurt.

I think I would have liked to see longer stories for the three, but overall this was an easygoing and fun read,

An enjoyable read. I find that Mercedes Lackey writes easy reading, enjoyable fantasy.

This book is a re-visit to an pervious herione which makes me smile, as it's like glimpsing an old friend for a few moments, and remembering the good times.

The two other gals she writes of are strong and brave in their own way, and lead the reader through intresting stories of their own. This is not a challenging book, but good fun and a quick read.
