Spencer ad to leave Really good story 45Clare London Redemption I read this one with a lot of Six-Moon Trail hope for Ziba i wasnt disappointed lovely 45 I found this anthology to be pleasant enough but I cant say that it was exciting for me All the stories were ok and I really enjoyed The Tenth Avatar I particularly liked this story because of the way itandled culture and religion and showed Mustard Seed Magic how the two main chracters found love despite their differences It would be really good to read a full story about Jack and ArunI didnt enjoy Santangelo because of the way it depicted HIV I find it dissappointing when authors depict positive people as living with a death sentence People living with HIV whoave access to treatment are living full and flourishing lives I find it strange and some what unrealistic to find a character in the book who ad been positive since 1991 and was living as if e could die at any time even though the Guardian spirits walk among us They
