Stories of fantasy ranging from dark, to light and inspiring, bring life to this anthology. The creatures featured throughout, both good and evil, display the devastating or wonderful personalities they were given by the authors who created them for your enjoyment.
I found all the stories in this anthology to be exceedingly well written, so much so, that I couldn’t choose a favourite. I enjoyed them all!
Switched by Alexis Lantgen, a brilliantly written opening story, very visual. A complete horror story encapsulated, bringing a twist to the story of a fairy changeling, showing the dark evil intent behind this mythological practice.
Where Darkness Hides by Andrea R. Cooper. A grown-up nightmare, turning a dark fantasy tale into a lyrical piece that tests your understanding of your own mind.
The Reach of Justice by George L. Duncan features a creature many never saw coming as the source of justice in a corrupt world. I loved the twist at the end.
Beware… A Seasonal Treat by Oz Durose. A dark fantasy takes a humorous twist, introduces us to a new type of zombie that makes you regret deleting the files off your very own computer…readers beware!
The Hounds of Alazoth by Allison D. Reid. Mythological hounds are a foreshadowing of doom for one man seeking refuge from their deadly chase. This author brings a tale of adventure as seen through the eyes of the hounds and their mysterious master, born from the darkness of hell.
Half-blood Academy by KJ Hawkins. Demons lurking throughout this tale bring a monster into the world. A demi-god finds out her fate as the author spins a tale of triumph and fear.
The Gem of Alismar by Matthew Frassetti presses the will of a man trying to save his lover from the hands of a demon. The bonds of friendship between man and beast are tested as this tale of adventure takes a twist. This was the longest and possibly the best.
Decisions, decisions by Brendan Carroll brings a brilliantly fun, entertaining story to life, showing how in the midst of everyday beauty, time simply passes when you least expect it. A truly magical fairy story, delightful.
The Frontida and the Kavastis by Khushi Agarwal tests the power of Christmas cheer with elves on strike. Will Christmas come on time, or will it be ruined for all?
Christmas Festival by D.B.Mauldin. The holidays are here as the author brings a hard working elf into the spotlight for a special Christmas festival.
A truly delightful collection to be enjoyed by everyone…
