Aubrey Meeks: Crows on Heartstrings



Rds the end and even though we don t know what s going to happen I have to assume that s itA Bullet for Death s Rifle This short story comes closest to what I expected from this anthology It reminded my of the Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo and Ascheherz by Nina Blazon The flashbacks blended perfectly into the text and the writing style has something special Although I suspected how it would end I really liked itCarnival Brier See this is how a short story should be like I loved the writing style because it fit the story perfectly A tragic end yes I know that s the way of this anthology but it makes sense I hope to read like thisWhich Witch I was so looking forward to this because Panna N is an amazing artist I love the colours the drawing style and how there aren t any words needed But of course it was way too shortWitch Child That s a kind of witch I ve never heard of before but I liked it There isn t much plot though and the end felt drawn outAngels Outrank Saints At first I thought What the hell am I reading I mean stories about the mafia can be pretty awesome but these guys were just aweful The story was ite slow This Soul Magic until it came to its climax and I have to admit I really liked this twistA Winter s Tale This one was boring and I can t really say why Certainly it would have been better if it weren t clear from the beginning how it would endElise It reminded me of the movie Midnight in Paris the one with Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams and the short story is almost as lovely butnfortunately boringRaised in Captivity Wow that was disturbing Trigger warning for kidnapping rape and plenty of different forms of physical and mental abuse This story is very different from the rest I d put it into the crime genre or rather psycho thrillers Never ever do I want to read anything like this again It only makes me cringeThe Ninth Daughter In what way is that a lovestory Maybe it s one of sisterly love so I guess that s okay I really enjoyed reading this mystery story and the writing style was very creative All that jumping back and forth without being confusing Well doneEraser I was already a fan of Audrey San Juan. Les of families torn apart by entities nknown lovers cursed by fairies siblings fighting monsters and No type.

S art before but this was too monotone and sometimes drawn too messy And then suddenly it was over Weird storyThe Hung Lovers Hm This poem didn t make me feel anything The Crow Princess A fairy tale first filled with stereo types of the genre royals a witch a curse true love s kiss etc but in the end it had a twist I absolutely didn t like Alya the spoiled brat first but she nderwent some character developementHeal Me Uhm What was that It started off pretty cool I loved the idea but the end just very weird and confusing I mean what happened And importantly why did it happenThe Autumn Prince I really enjoyed this one and I would have liked of this The end was neither happy nor completely Testing the Limits unhappy and that makes it very realistic even though it s fantasy The perfect heartwarming end for this anthology I am so happy to have backed this book through kickstarter First off I was impressed with the artwork even though I ordered the black and white copy Secondly I should say my favorite stories were A Winters Tale Carnival Brier The Which Witch comic and Roses Grow For Mammot Men From deadly plagues to a crazy narrater who engages the reader to an eyecatching colour scheme with a sweet and simple story to a thrilling need for a decision but endsp in misunderstanding I loved it loved it loved itP S Personally I think the strongest stories got the lowest rating somewhere here People have different tastes but other backers I know from the kickstarter agree with me that the better stories got no credit here I just wanted to add this opinion because I feel that these hard working writers deserve a chance at a good first impressionD Beautiful stories and illustrations All the authors and artists did an amazing job and I m so happy that I helped fund the bookThe only negative thing I have to say about the book is that it needed another round of proof reading I found some mistakes while reading and it s such a shame since the book is so great I feel that it s especially important to avoid the type of mistakes I found since it is an indie publicationNonetheless it is still a great book that definitely deserves a read. Of love is safe from these tragedies Gay straight romantic familial friendly no matter what your shape or color.

Good stuff I m so so disappointed with this anthology I got a free copy from Meeks because I helped a bit by hyping The Prodigals Return up the Kickstarter campaign It held so much promiseThis book is very beautiful the art the design etc made it incredibly pleasing to leaf through and set on the shelf But the stories left a lot to be desiredThe most I can describe them as is sub par In fact the first story was so bad I asked myself is this a joke While I enjoyed reading them I can only say that I really liked one of them Otherwise most of these read like high school journal submissions than a professional anthology compilation But maybe they re just notp to my taste because I am very picky about writing stylesNot to mention the fact that I found a grammatical error in the last story as well as least five typographical errors in formatting Why the last story I don t know but it was the only one I noticed them I won a copy and Aubrey Meeks herself sent me a hardcover edition that was even signed by herWhen I first heard about this anthology I knew I needed to have it Even though I didn t like all of the stories the same way I enjoyed reading most of it and looking at those stunning illustrations Those really make it a special collection of stories But I have to say that the characters weren t as diverse as they could have beenRoses Grow for Mammet Men I didn t really like this It didn t have an actual plot Wicked Way Interactive 1 until about the lastarter and there were mistakes in it that disturbed the reading flow I had troubles The Bosss Marriage Plan understanding the point of view of the first person narrator and I still don t get all of it The characters weren t that likeable and I thought the relationship between Kvel and Mercurie seemed abusive from both sides Therfore I m glad that it ended how it ended And what s with all the Icelandic Besides me there are about 300000 people whonderstand that Not a good start for an anthology and I really hope it will get betterSkin Link I liked most of the story but it became a bit too technical and serious towards the end I guess catfishing is still a thing in the future Unfortunately it became somewhat homophobic towa.
