“The Key of F” Book Review

key of f book coverHello, my darklings!

So this week’s independent review isn’t a new release. In fact, The Key of F by Jennifer Haskin was published on May 8, 2018.

Last month, Ms. Haskin asked me if I’d like to review a copy of the book, to which I gladly agreed.  It’s taken me a bit to get around to it, though. She requested that the original review go up on Amazon, so what follows is the review as it appears there (NOT AN AFFILIATE LINK).

BCS coverHello, my darklings!

Beneath Ceaseless Skies #270, January 31, 2019

BCS coverHello, my darklings!

I’m back with Beneath Ceaseless Skies next issue! Once again, they bring two great fantasy stories to the table: “To Stab with a Rose, to Love with a Knife” by Natalia Theodoridou and “Do Not Look Back, My Lion” by Alix E. Harrow.  Both were great but Harrow’s was my favorite of the two.
