"Julia meets a descendant of the gods and faces having her memory wiped, but if he really wants her, she might end up with a god of her own. Ellen is given a choice, death or a half life amongst murderous sirens, but is there a possibility she hasn’t considered? Damien faces Eleanor in a battle of light in a desperate attempt to avoid his mistress’s punishment for a spell gone wrong, and a hole in the pavement becomes Norris’s passport to a longed for future. Nona faces death in an ancient temple but dreams of a modern cancer patient. Will either of them escape their fate? Finally, Sally discovers a pair of rose coloured glasses and a man that may or may not be a wizard.
This entertaining, heart-warming and thought-provoking collection of urban fantasy and magical realism stories is 22,000 words and includes ‘The Boneyard, a ’semi finalist in the Aussiecon 4 Make Ready fantasy/scfi competition of 2010."
Needing a quick read, Matter of Perception gives the elements of surprised as well as intrigues the reader.
What I liked most about this book is being able to jump into another characters shoes and see what they are doing. Each story is super short giving just the right amount of information to keep the reader going.
My only grip is that I would like to see the stories grow into full novels. Some of stories I wished for them to go on because I wanted more! For the pov switch was okay cause with each new chapter there was a new character so there was no confusion as to where the story was going.
Matter of Perception is an great read. Loads of characters and pov, it fulfills the reader to the end.
I give it 4 BITES!
