...a praiseworthy smorgasbord!

The Very Best of Kate Elliott  by Kate Elliott

I have loved Kate Elliot (Alis Rassmussen) from her Jaran novels through the Crown of Stars and onwards.
I really enjoyed the collection's introduction and end essays. They are heartfelt, thought provoking and interesting. Elliott's discussion about her whys, wherefores, influences and how's of writing is fascinating. We are given a glimpse into the major factors that informed her writings.
This excellent collection showcases her considerable talent.
Set in the various worlds that form Elliott's novels, we are invited into those worlds via strong female characters caught in a variety of dilemmas, exploring their challenges alongside them. Very rewarding!
