A Universe of Wishes by Dhonielle Clayton - HIGH

A Universe of Wishes
by Dhonielle Clayton
, 416 pages. SHORT STORIES. Random House, 2020. $19.

Language: R (46 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content: PG13; Violence: PG13



In fifteen short stories, these authors write compelling stories with heroes that break the molds we are used to reading. Readers are invited to stretch their imaginations with a variety of genres and characters that allow for everyone to see pieces of themselves reflected.

Jumping from story to story was a little disorienting because I would forget that each was only a short story; I want to see where the stories would continue if allowed more than one chapter. The stories I liked the least were the two connected to series I am not familiar with, but all of the stories are bewitching. The mature content rating is for innuendo, nudity, and illegal activity; the violence rating is for gun use and mention of suicide.
