Songs of Love and Death: All-Original Tales of Star-Crossed Love - Diana Gabaldon, Gardner R. Dozois, George R.R. Martin, Jim Butcher rating for Jacqueline Carey's story: You, and You Alone: 4 stars

This story is actually just a snippet, and damn, it left me heartbroken. We follow Anafiel Delaunay's memories regarding his first meeting with prince Rolande and what happened after: their romance, the betrothal with Anafiel's foster sister Edmée, her death and the lover's break-up over Rolande's new betrothed, who, as Anafiel suspects, murdered Edmée. And, of course, the tragic ending. We all now what happened and happens, know all that from the first book in the series. And the story really only contains of snippets of Anafiel's memory, but still. If you loved those characters in the past - or at least Anafiel - then this will break your heart, too. There might be a tiny bit of new information at the end, but I read the original series years ago, so I'm not sure whether that was already mentioned back then.
