    I was one of the lucky people who knew all about Project Unicorn from the very first announcement so color me so pleased when the announcement for book release with both books and new stories in each came out early this week I have madly adored all of Sarah and Jenn's works all these gloriously different lesbian short stories and novels for girls of our age to have and this is another one I would advise to anyone

    Another of the collections of the Diemers' Project Unicorn stories Most of them are available for free online but I want to support this endeavour and all of these stories are charming in their own ways I think I liked In the Garden I Did Not Sin best of these they blur into each other a little because I devoured them in one go but I had fun

    While reading this collection I felt as if I was truly entering new worlds In these worlds monsters existed They could be either good or evil I liked the idea that sometimes being a monster could truly be a gift even though it seemed like a curse at first My favorite story from it was Two Salt Feet as it was a really creative and horrifying concept to sell mermaids as meat The stories are all uniue and I enjoyed that I never knew what I'd encounter next They were all well written and imaginative They really differed from each other despite being written around the common theme of monstrous sea Both ladies did a fabulous job and I am excited for their future work in this project

    As with all short story collections some stories shone and others fizzled a little I enjoyed it and the premise of the collection is great but the stories themselves arent oustanding Some even feel shallow i know they are short stories but still skme deeper chracterisation would be nice I will probably read the others in the series but at the same time I am not clamoring to read them ASAP
