Dragon Hoard and Other Tales of Faerie

Standard

27991960

This isn’t normally a book I reviewed, so much so that the only description for the book I can think of is this is a compilation of fantasy short stories. Some of the stories are written more like fairy tales and others were just thought experiments. There were some good stories where you wanted more elaboration, and other stories were kind of boring.

My two favourite short stories were: Troll, a troll in life with sunrises and sunsets, and Teenage Driver, a story about a teenager taking their driving test with a werewolf. The other ones were ok but kind of bland. I would have loved for more if the stories to have a bit more depth to them.

BabaYaga.com felt like the beginning of an urban fantasy novel and doesn’t really read well alone. Dragon Hoard feels like disjointed stories that don’t really flow together. Finally, Beware was just an odd story.

Since is free on Kindle, only having a few stories you like isn’t horrible. I would be more interested in the author’s full-length work.


I received a copy of this book from the author via Voracious Readers Only.
