Many of the books I review were FREE in exchange for an honest review. I do not get paid to review them. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as ADs. They are promoting books but I do NOT get any money or goods for posting Spotlights.

Dark Children of Naor by Justyna Plichta-Jendzio

This seemed like three very loosely connected short stories.  I guess that is the gist of the title, they were the dark children. 

The cover illustration was very nice and will entice people into purchasing.   The book has three chapters which as I stated seem to be stand alone stories.   The Hunter, The Burden of Inheritance and Second Wife.  

Stories one and two fit together well. 

Each story has merit and frankly I think each story could be expanded into its own book.   One of the reasons I am not fond of short stories are that they are over too quickly.   The author created some good characters that you wanted to get to know with more depth. 

The copy I received for review purposes had some of the formatting problems that I have had in conversion of my own books to Kindle.  Nothing insurmountable and I suspect the finished version will have corrected that issue.  

I do like dragons and they figure prominently in each story.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
