This review is based only on the following stories.The Girls from Avenger by Carrie Vaughn This one made me sad, mostly because a man s ego caused great harm I was glad that Em found out what happened, just wish the guy was punished.Dying with her Cheer Pants On by Seanan McGuire This author does horror in a way to make it seem real I like the idea that the girls came up with, it s just too bad that one of them had to be sacrificed. So I only really liked about three stories in the entire anthology The very first one I read Northern Chess by Paula Guran I loved the ending I can t help but chuckle view spoiler even if it s a total trope now that a woman can succeed where a man can t due to the wording of a curse Or you know having someone actually named Nobody or No Man hide spoiler I liked that Jaisel could stroll in and not feel the need to prove herself to the men she encounters in the camp She put the people So I only really liked about three stories in the entire anthology The very first one I read Northern Chess by Paula Guran I loved the ending I can t help but chuckle view spoiler even if it s a total trope now that a woman can succeed where a man can t due to the wording of a curse Or you know having someone actually named Nobody or No Man hide spoiler I liked that Jaisel could stroll in and not feel the need to prove herself to the men she encounters in the camp She put the people who didn t get a clue in their place an did t dwell on it Also she s honorable, she didn t like guy but she still went in after him So in short my first story and my favorite.Second I liked The Girls from Avenger by Carrie Vaughn It was sad what happened to Mary and the fact the men were covering it up because they weren t following the rules just because she was a woman Honestly you gotta wonder just how many women have been hurt because a man s ego couldn t handle the fact she could do the same job on the same level or better than him Nobody answer that i know its way to many.Last I liked Joenna s Axe by Elaine Isaak This story makes me think of all the war stories about the throwaway units in armies no body wants and they turn around and defeat the enemy Wasn t there a movie about this Glory Maybe I dunno Still a good story.Everything else, I can barely remember and i wasn t particularly interested in I practically skipped the war section in it s entirety Although They tell me there will be no Pain by Rachael Acks, is an interesting take on a soldier trying to transition back to civilian life It s got to be hard what with what s okay during a battle no longer being okay in civilian life And it s got to be harder with the extensive body modifications she went through when she first joined and then went though again when she quit It makes me appreciate our soldiers even.Recommendation sure read it you ll probably find a story you like, even if it s not all of them
