Book Review: "Fires of our Choosing" (Eugene Cross)
Full disclosure: The author (better known to his friends as "BG") has been a friend of mine since freshman year of college. BG is a great guy and friend, so of course, I wanted to support him by reading his book. That being said, I'd still recommend the book, even if he didn't happen to be my friend!
Fires of Our Choosing is a collection of short stories, and they're written in such a way that you're immediately pulled into the characters, their lives, and often times, their hardships. Some of the stories were very dark, or ended in a way that I didn't expect. My only complaint about the book is that I wanted more! I guess that's the point of short stories, they suck you in, get you invested in the story, then leave the rest up to you.
Up next: Vision in White (Bride Quartet series) by Nora Roberts
