I really loved the first two stories and liked the third one a lot but it left you hanging a little on a couple of things. But the stories were all really good . The plots were good. I think everyone can pretty much find at the very least one of the stories to ;like a lot. These stories are well written, I loved the characters and the ins and outs of the stories and I recommend.
