Why do I have it? I like fantasy.

Chris Astor is a forty-year-old divorced father of one – a daughter named Becky who has gone through much in her young life. Now, as Becky faces more obstacles, something strange happens.

Miea is the young queen of a fantasy land that Becky and her father created when Becky was little, a land that finds itself in horrific, even deadly trouble. Together, the three must uncover the secret that has brought them into contact. The secret to the future, to their purpose, lies in their imagination.

I enjoyed this book very much. It was very moving and a book that I will enjoy having on my bookshelves. I tend to cry a lot at touching books and that is what happened as I read this book. I give it an A!

Why do I have it? I like short stories.

Set in the world of A World I Never Made, these three short stories feature the characters Pat and Lorraine Nolan, Megan Nolan and Max French.

The first short story is Till Death do us Part; Pat and Lorraine Nolan meet three ne’er-do-well natives on their Mexican honeymoon. In God’s Warriors, cynical Megan Nolan witnesses a shocking act that calls into question her loyalty to friends or her loyalty to money. In the third short story, Max, FBI Agent Max French exacts a deadly price years after a very personal crime.

I enjoyed Anyone Can Die by James LePore. It was an very interesting introduction to the characters of A World I Never Made. I give it an A!
