WHILST WHAT FOLLOWS IS A SPECIFIC REVIEW OF THE SHADOWDRAGON PRINCESS, THIS IS NOT TO SUGGEST THAT OTHERS AREN'T EQUALLY AS ENTICING. BUT EITHER WAY IT DOES ESTABLISH THAT FOR ITS MERE PRICE (THE COLLECTION AS A WHOLE}, THE DRAGONSHADOW PRINCESS' VALUE MEANS THAT THE COLLECTION IS A CERTIFIED STEAL ACCORDINGLY.
An unexpected (on account of the nature of the story and its lore. Positive and exciting compilation of mingling subgenres, scooping up appeal to a broad range of potential readers, its complete set of characteristics performing wildly for the story's fantastical sense; though pragmatically in a fan paradigm, which if alternate readers would allow the atypical fixation most often influencing their criticisms using unrealistic paradigms as a form of complaint. Regarding this story's broad array of qualities, these critics do unnecessarily handicap in a deleterious manner in said scope. A great mascot to the Wicked Soul Collection, and a wholly outstanding performance for its own sake, a breath taking beginning of a new series. This inclusion in the collection of >20 stories compared to its value for money following K.M. MaKenna's performance, promptly for this reader's evaluation doth shoot her to a top standing leader board position accommodating said numbers, depending on the pool of numbers considered. I loath to quantify any mathematical objectivity, preferring instead a qualitatively perspective which doesn't seek or require exact quantification of numbers when addressing factors versus numbers which various readers seek to substantiate as an exact numerical allotment. Do yourselves a sure fire service, and relax your expectations, for once you've read the opening chapter conservatively, or in my case was the suicide hooking after just 5 pages.
