Blog Tour Furthermore: An Anthology

The Blurb

A first date, a lottery, treachery and deceit. Sometimes fate has other plans. Sometimes there’s more to tell.

In Furthermore: An Anthology, eighteen original stories take you on a journey through worlds here and beyond. From the depths of the earth to the embrace of the sea, your favorite series continue. Prequels, alternative views, and new scenes give readers a chance to experience more than originally told.

Including stories from Rebekah Campbell, Amber Garr, David Estes, Leigh Michael, Karen Amanda Hooper, Stephanie Judice, and Mayandree Michael. And most importantly, in honor of those who lost the battle and those who continue to fight, all proceeds from this anthology will be donated to cancer research and support.

 My Review 

Before I started reading this I was going to review each story. After I finished the book I decided that I was just going to review it as a whole and comment on the ones that stood out. After a couple of stories in the beginning I started to lose interest. It was not because they were bad stories it was because they were so short. Usually I like not knowing what's going to happen. Anyways, I stopped reading for a couple of days and came back. I don't know if I just wasn't in the reading mood that that, but when I came back, the stories were awesome. The second half of the book the stories were longer as well. I found myself getting excited and hoping that the stories never ended. I might want to mention I've only read one of the actually books in the anthology. Surprisingly I don't think there were a lot of spoilers in it. I mean I still want to read all the books. :D There was only one that I think was a big spoiler and it was at the end of the book. That being said I loved all the stories. What stories stood out the most. The Sound of love by Karen Amanda Hooper as part of the Kindrily series. Let me say I can't wait to read this series!!!!! Rapture by Stephanie Judice as part of the Saga of the Setti Series. It was very interesting to read and I want to find out more. And My favorite would be The Runaway by David Estes from the Tri-Realms. OH MY GOSH! I need to read The Moon Dwellers like now. Tawni's story left me wanting more. I couldn't stop thinking about it. And the good part is that Snyder has the book and I will be stealing it from her soon. :D 

Overall: I enjoyed each and every story and recommend it to anyone who likes anthologies. Even people that don't like them, I think will enjoy these. Each stories had a unique message to tell.
