Read just Laini Taylor's Gentlemen Send Phantoms. As always with Laini Taylor, it was perfection.

This was a nice read. a couple of the stories were a little iffy.
I really liked 'Gentlemen Send
Phantoms', 'The Chosen One and 'Fate'.

A lot of fun stories in this anthology, but none of them thrilled me enough to start reading and following new authors.

A great book of short stories about prophecy and prediction. All the stories were good. My favourites were Gentlemen Send Phantoms, Out of the Blue, The Chosen One, and Fate. I was surprised that I enjoyed all of these short stories because usually there are a few that I do not always like.
