My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What an entertaining collection of short stories, all featuring some sort of fantastic creature (hence the title). Here are the stories I most enjoyed:
Skin Deep by Morgan Smith
She may not have looks or personality, but she has just enough charm and wit to tame a snake. 😉
Talori and The Shark by Jessica L. Elliott
This was a sweet tale of finding love in unlikely places.
Mothers’ Night Out by D.G. Driver
Okay, so this one is a little out of my wheel house. It’s kind of a horror, but it’s told with such humor, I couldn’t help but kinda love it. Moral of this story? There is no easy money. 😛
Absolutely True Facts about the Pacific Tree Octopus by H.L. Burke
This was another one that surprised me. I didn’t think I’d be able to connect with the main character because of her age, but I found her tenacity and the resulting story quite endearing.
Snapdragon by Lea Doué
This was a lovely tale of two sisters “protected” by a curse.
Celebration by Arthur Daigle
The trolls have found a way to honor the man who was kind to them.
The Adventures of Zero: The Quest for Wormsroot by Vincent Trigili
His name may be zero, but this kid is going to make something of himself.
And even the ones that didn’t hit me as being outstanding were still good. An excellent collection of short stories for anyone who loves fantastic creatures of every shade.
**And the best part is that all of the Fellowship of Fantasy books are clean! 😀
