out of 5 starsVariety and entertainment from cover to cover. By Maria Catalina Egan on August 28, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a fun collection as every writer has their own style and they are very varied.. I like the variety and some intrigued me more than others. Apparently the proceeds are used for a great cause and that too makes this an appealing buy. I have a favorite, KUSTOS, by Kandy Kay Scaramuzzo. I would love to see this story as a full novel . Written in the first person Kustos opens the possibility for great adventures. I liked how the character developed and grew in just a few pages. All the voices were nice and Unique, FIVE STARS
