5 star review by Shawn Verdin

What a great anthology! Dauntless Indies: A Collection of Shorts is a compilation of three very different short stories written by three very different authors. All three shorts are part of a series (Tatum's, a series of short stories), but can definitely stand on their own.

Cradit's Beyond Dusk: Anne has all the intrigue and mystery of its setting, South Louisiana. From the marshy bayous to the intoxicating city of New Orleans, Cradit takes us on a fast-paced journey filled with secrets, family drama and supernatural talents. Anne is definitely a page turner, often leaving me on the edge of my seat unable to turn the page quick enough.

Tatum's Masked Encounters is the introductory novelette in her Intoxicating Passion series. It's a quick, sexy read that leaves you wanting more. The female lead is a sympathetic college student who keeps a protective wall up, while the male lead is quite the opposite. Sparks fly when these two meet, and their chemistry is undeniable. Bring on the second installment!

Rivers' Shadows Fall is part of her Others of Edenton series. It is an action-packed fantasy for the 18+ crowd. While Rivers' characters may have some other-worldly powers, they have problems, including moral dilemmas, that are definitely of this world. This story is fast-paced and well-written and lovers of fantasy will surely enjoy!

I'm anxiously anticipating Volume 2 of this collection!
