Laura is telling the truth about being from Faerie. But not about anything else.
Darri has been waiting years for her brother’s return… because only she can protect the rest of her family from him.
Sarli is one of a long line of abandoned girls chosen to be a human sacrifice. But she’s planning for her turn to go a little differently.
Seven previously published fantasy stories by Leah Cypess, author of Mistwood & Nightspell.
These seven stories were all particularly well done and I liked them all except for the last one. The last one was a little haphazard and confused. I especially liked Changelings and Silent Blade.
Changelings was about two fairies in human bodies and their attempt to get back into faerie. Silent Blade was about a girl who was waiting for her assassin brother’s return.
In all the stories the characters seemed to leap off the page in just the short amount of time you got to spend with them. The stories revolved around them and Cypess did a very good job of it.
These were a quick read and were very enjoyable.
