Totally different mood for Freddy Mackay - Internment, a bittersweet tale about love lost, found, lost and found again; Tadashi is a kitsune, a Japanese demon with the gift to change into a fox. The gift is also a burden, when Tadashi, still grieving the loss of his lover, will search his vengeance. Berg is the local vet, used to visit the shrine of Tadashi's family on the mountain when he was a kid; he had also a crush on Tadashi at the time, but as a little kid he didn't understand his feelings, and when he meets Tadashi again as an adult, he is married and with a child coming soon. Theirs seems to be a doomed love. Being this a romance, there will be a uplifting ending, but not without the two men deeply suffering for it.
Internment stood aside from the other two stories both for the length than the mood. But in any case, longer or shorter, all three stories are good, and I enjoyed this anthology quite a lot.
