For Those Who Like Whimsy

By LadyAnder, author of Edict

Oct 23, 2016: I’ve never been so quick to write a review until now.

Odd& Ends is one of those stories I describe as a happy discovery. The writing reminds me a bit of Terry Pratchett for a comparison . Basically, for those who like the fantastic mixed with humor, this is the story for you.

It’s about a magic shop keeper and his assistants who run a little shop in a city called Skymoore.It seems to be a series of stories. One is currently completed at the time of posting this.

As I read through the achieves, I couldn’t help but smiling because the story and the writing is simply charming. And I like charming whimsical things a lot. All and all, this is a lovely story.

I’ve no complaints about the writing.

The humor is never awkward. And I only mention because humor isn’t that easy to write or convey sometimes. It isn’t rare for me to come across a story that is supposed to be a humors only to find it to be forced. The writer tries too hard. I can’t say I got that impression a single time.

So yeah, these stories are very much worth checking out.
