What the Readers Say

Five Star Rating Tales to entertain and mystify!
By u94_Snevets

Loved this Anthology. “The Rooftop Game” is an exciting and well crafted tale about a swordsman defending an infant princess against impossible odds. The rest of the stories are equally mesmerizing, sucking you into worlds of magic and intrigue with skill and panache. Will be buying the print version for my personal library.

Five Star Rating The stories are original…
By TR Dillon

Highly recommended. The stories are original and the writing tight. Very readable.

Five Star Rating Good Fantasy Anthology
By Erica

This is a solid collection of stories. Each one is different enough that you don’t feel bored, like you’re reading the same story over and over again. There was plenty of mystery and suspense throughout, as well as some very innovative ideas, like using fireball shooting wizards instead of cannons on navy ships. The variety of fantasy worlds left a lot to like here.
