Reading End of Days made me wish Angelfall was a standalone. The series of Penryn and the End of Days held so much promise, especially with Angelfall, which I found very original with its unconventional portrayal of angels.
As a whole I liked the concept of a collection of short holiday stories. Where My True Love Gave to Me shines is the multiplicity of views. There are stories for Christmas, Hanukkah and Winter Solstice. There are stories about people who subvert heteronormativity. There are stories about people from multicultural and non-White backgrounds.
