    Different but not damaged We all have some kind of weakness that make us who we are whether we accept it and soldier on or not is entirely up to us Different doesn t necessarily mean bad and in Andy Peloquin s anthology of stories, his characters show us exactly just that the differences in his characters are what makes them who they are.Set in the fantastical world of Voramis, Different, Not Damaged tells individual stories of characters who has some kind of crippling factor to them either in b [...]

    Different, Not Damaged is a series of six stories set in the fictional world of Voramis They re about people trying to overcome, or at least come to terms with, the hardships of their lives Some make great sacrifices Others learn lessons along the way The first four are like vignettes and the last two are a little fuller, like prequels All were very moving and worth the read For those who want to know This one has graphic violence and gore.

  8. Casia Courtier

    I received a copy of Different, Not Damaged for an honest review I was not compensated in any way for this review Aside from how wicked the cover is and the interesting title, I was grabbed the moment I saw this book is a fantasy look on different mental illnesses Given the large percentage of people who have to deal with mental illness, it s interesting that there isn t as much a representation in the fantasy genre I never realized that until now, to be honest.This book is a series of short sto [...]

    This is a collection of short stories based on real life people with medical conditions but set in a fantasy world which some link in with the Bucelarii series It s an interesting collection to read One story features a character that paints glorious pictures but other people see them as black They depict real life situations and are a foretelling of the future Another features a character who lives in two time frames, he keeps backtracking, in his mind, to times of historic battles but is still [...]

    Fascinating reading.Set in the imagined world of Voramis this anthology of six stories focuses on characters who are required to address challenges that life has thrown at them either because or or inspite of some kind of difference in their physical abilities or mental wellbeing and in doing so undergo a journey of discovery and growing awareness It was fascinating reading the different perspectives and the different issues each character has to confront or overcome the scars of battle to the l [...]

  13. Al Burke

    Some call them disabilities, but for others they are gifts Set in his world of Voramis, the author has created an anthology which delves into the lives of people with a range of disabilities Rather than take the easy route, they are portrayed as tragic heroes, who must deal with the cruel world and Voramis is a cruel world and well as the rough hand life has thrown them There are no happy endings here well, not in the traditional sense , so don t read for a feelgood experience However, if you li [...]

    This is one of those books that leaves you wanting I thoroughly enjoyed reading this unique book.The author wrote several short stories and put disabilities in a whole new light he put them in a fantasy setting You could feel the characters feelings, emotions, and most of all their struggles You could feel how courageous and brave they all were After reading through the stories I ended up focusing on the characters not the disability portrayed Do I have a favorite story in this book No, I loved [...]

  15. Tina

    This is a collection of short stories about the different people that live in Mr Peloquin s fantasy world There are people of magic, pride and revenge in the town of Volamis The stories were well and the characters well thought out The stories in themselves were very good but as a whole book, it kind of confused me Are all of these people to meet someday Are they all parts of another, bigger story If I take it for what it is, it had very good stories But if there is another bigger story happenin [...]

    What kind of world would it be if everyone were exactly alike Differences are what make us unique, no matter if those differences are visible like the color of the skin or some scars, or subtle like a brain working in a special way Thanks to the author for this book Reading it I ve learn some valuable life lessons.
