    1. Originally posted at: lasrsff/2012/08/wLet’s take a walk in the woods. When you come back out, you won’t be the same person you were when you went in.This book contains eight short stories about the wild side, a world full of magical and mythical beings, and the odd creatures that live in the dark shady places. All the stories are interesting and fun to read. This author gives his stories depth and gave this reader the feeling I was actually in that time and place. I had two that really appe [...]

    2. This book is a collection of short fantasy stories. Each one is set in a fantasy setting, in a world full of magical elements and mythical beings.They are told in a language that is richly descriptive and in my opinion, it helped to make the reader get into the atmosphere of the stories.I loved most of them, but if I must choose my favourite ones, they were: The Om Tree, The Trouble with Tansy, and The Fifth Verse.I received a free digital copy in exchange for my review.

    3. This is one crafty, creative lady. Her command of the English language, her knowledge of mythology and folklore and story telling abilities are almost intimidating. I enjoyed reading one of these before bed every night. I found them comforting. I've got to point out that she is a complete artist and her blog is worth a visit ftmckinstry. There is a lot of mystical, ancient atmosphere going on and her use of language reflects that. She writes as though she is from a different time. This is not so [...]

    4. Eight stories from the author of the Chronicles of Ealiron fantasy series explore a common theme of spiritual and psychological awakening. The backdrop of fantasy settings, magic and wizardry form metaphors for how people make deep connections and accept life-altering realizations, often through great pain and confusion. Main characters, initially unaware of their larger purpose in the world, hunt for this integration, but often they begin as if seeking rules or procedures, something like wizard [...]

    5. Won this book through a giveaway.I'm going to start off by saying this wasn't really my type of book. That being said, the series of short stories that make up this book are filled with poetic imaging and storytelling that breathes more than just life into the stories that elevated the telling into the fantasy realm even without subject matter that also took place there. Normally I stick to more action based books, but even without a whole lot of action taking place in these pages, the author s [...]

    6. This book is somewhat different than I am used to reading but I thoroughly enjoyed it, none the less. a collection of eight short stories that run the gamut from humour, fantasy all the way to science fiction. I found it a very easy read and would highly recommend it!!
