The focus is romance in the six short stories in this anthology. With a combination of realizing your dreams and learning who you really are. The loss or gaining of love playing a part in the characters learning more about who they are and what they want.
As the summary of each stories details they all involve a supernatural element. Even though there were a few characters that I did not like, I was able to leave each story with something to think about. My favorite story was The Maker. Very entertaining and although I wouldn't do it exactly the same way, definitely something that I have wanted to do at times.
They were very fast and fun reads, dealing with heartache and new found love a lot of bad decisions and soul searching.
