Shadow Spinner: Collection 2: The Man with No Eyes (Parts 6 - 12) - Andrew Leon
For this second collection of the previously serialized Shadow Spinner series, the author focuses on The Man With No Eyes, the Watcher, and Michael (Tib's father). Unfortunately, I can't give much more of a summary without giving spoilers, but I was sad to see my favorite character go, especially since I am finding the three characters mentioned previously a little flat overall. I also feel so bad for Tib's mother, and would really like to see more conclusion of conflict in every serial of this series. All of that, coupled with a jarring switch of POV, give this collection its 3-star rating.

The bulk of this collection is dominated by the addition of the novelette "Augurs of Distant Shadow" by Briane Pagel, a dark fiction based on Andrew Leon's "House on the Corner". The novelette takes up a whopping 67% of the Kindle file, and is a well-written, action-packed story. For the amount of space it takes up, I am surprised that the contributing author does not get a credit on the cover.

As far as the story goes, I was confused for most of the beginning, perhaps because I wasn't getting references to the parent work, but in the end, the storyline grew on me, and I was curious about what was going to happen. I would have liked to see the story far longer, so there could be more character development and reaction, but I understand space constraints.
