I believe this is this only historical story in the collection, even though it is supposed to cover a wide range of genres. Most of then seem to fall either under the contemporary genre or science fiction and fantasy. I’m not sure what the point of this story was. I assume the dangerous woman in question is Nora’s mother, the Queen. She idolizes her, but we never get to see her in any action. This story is so unremarkable, I can’t even remember what the core conflict was supposed to be. Granted, it has been a few weeks since I read it, but nothing is sticking out in my memory. All I remember is a young girl in a historical setting that gets shuffled around for 23 pages. If you are not like me and don’t feel compelled to read the entire anthology, I would recommend giving this one a pass.
