A Tangled Web by New York Times bestselling author Mercedes LackeyKidnapping Persephone should have been an easy task But in the Five Hundred Kingdoms nothing's ever simple and the wrong blonde goddess is stolen by mistake leaving Prince Leopold without his new bride At least until he braves the realm of the dead to get her back. Review of A Tangled Web by MERCEDES LACKEY A TANGLED WEB is the reason I wanted to check out HARVEST MOON I always love a good recreation of the HadesPersephone relationship and ATW sounded like it would be a cute fun readMy first problem with this piece is that it felt too casual I wasn't buying the motherdaughter relationship between Persephone and Demeter The former sounded like a brat with ADD and the latter sounded like one of those psycho mothers you thank the heavens you're not related toI did not enjoy Hades acting like such a wimp He's the God of the Underworld even if one is going to recreate a story I don't know he rubbed off on me the wrong way because he was so timid at the startThe relationship was cute but overall I wasn't feeling very invested probably because I wasn't buying Persephone and Hades as characters I would have enjoyed their relationship developing further Instead of being told about how the two spent a year together I think the story would have been interesting following that year and watching the two fall in love As it is I'm expected as a reader to simply accept the fact that the two love each other without ever being shown that loveOne of the primary reasons I wanted to read the text in the first place was to witness that love Major bummer that I didn't get toWhile I am interested in Norse mythology I don't know as much about it I felt like I was thrown into this side of the story without any warning and there really wasn't as much of an explanationback story for these characters Once again did not feel invested I hate to say it but I usually skimmed the scenes that switched to this POVOverall I'm rather reluctant to continue with this anthology however I will try to do so at a later date

There are 3 stories included in Harvest Moon which I'll deal with and rate separatelyA Tangled Web by Mercedes Lackey This is the first work by Mercedes Lackey I've ever read and I can see why she gets such high reviews Despite the fact that this short story is part of a larger narrative it was so well written that I was able to follow with no trouble I loved the perspective on the Persephone legend and the characterisations of the different gods in the GreekRoman pantheon The presence of Leo and Brunnhilde seemed forced though and completely unnecessary I get that Ms Lackey was tying it in to a larger series but it shouldn't seem so contrived The plot also felt kind of flat There was so much going on that it wasn't possible to dig in to any one part of itRating 3 starsCast in Moonlight by Michelle Sagara WestThis is book 05 in the Elantra Series by Ms Sagara West which is one of my all time favourites I loved this look at Kaylin's introduction to the life of a Hawk I'm not sure how enjoyable it would have been if I hadn't read the other series already but since I have it was awesome Rating 4 starsRetribution by Cameron HaleyLike Mercedes Lackey I've never read anything by Cameron Haley and was pleasantly surprised by this novella I like the gangster sorcerer concept though I still don't understand exactly what purpose the gangs serve in the world Haley has created The story is well told though and I like the main character Dominica The gangster speak I could do without Rating 35 stars
