    1. The following views are of my own and have no influence of anyone whatsoever.*****WARNING - THE FOLLOWING REVIEW CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS******* I won this book in a giveaway on and I have to say that this book didn't disappoint me. I hadn't heard much about the author so I was eagerly waiting to just plunge into this book and it was a fun-ride.The book 'The Assassin's Tear' is a collection of short stories written by Karen Azinger, author of The Steel and Silk Saga. These short stories are a mix [...]

    2. A while ago I read and reviewed Karen Azinger's The Steel Queen, which is the first book of The Silk & Steel Saga. It was an interesting fantasy book and a good start for an enjoyable fantasy series. Now that I've read Karen Azinger's short story collection, The Assassin's Tear, I think that she's an author to watch, because she has her own writing style and she has a talen for writing entertaining and addictive short stories.The Assassin's Tear is a charming short story collection, which of [...]

    3. I really enjoyed this collection of short stories. The title story expands on the worlds of Erdhe, (from the author's books The Steel Queen and The Flame Priest), which I loved. I bought this collection for that story alone, but was pleased to find the rest of the collection was just as well written and captivating. Some of the stories are so well constructed, with great plots, conflicts, and surprising resolutions, that I would like to see them made into movies. As a professional woman, I parti [...]

    4. The prequels for Silk and Steel were fantastic. I also liked the different styles of story.

Anyway, great short stories.Please keeps writing them, Karen!

    5. Most readers read more than one genre and love more than one author so I wish more authors would publish books of short stories so readers can get the best of both worlds; a new genre from a favorite author, or vice versa.Loved all of these!

    6. Full review over at Fantasy Book Critic ANALYSIS: Karen Azinger first came to my notice last year with her debut The Steel Queen. In the penultimate months of last year, I was alerted to her new short story collection The Assassin’s Tear which seemed like a nice mix. When the author requested a review, I readily agreed as I had enjoyed reading her debut offering and now I wanted to see how she would do with shorter side of fiction. The collection opens up with a nice Introductory note in which [...]
